Football Odds

It is amazing how football odds can be so very different from one sports book to the next and I remember when I started online wagering I was totally confused by the odds that were available and I dread to think about the many mistakes that I must have made. Looking back though, I now realise it was all part of the learning process as when I started out in the wonderful world of online gambling there was nothing like the information out there that is available today.

Football odds, like any other odds, are more important than many people realise but you will also find that any gambler that is worth their salt will always put a great deal of thought into the football odds that are available before they even consider making a bet.

I know that many newcomers to the game are amazed when they see someone have a really strong opinion that a football bet will win but refuse to make the best because the football odds are not good enough. The bet will probably go on and win bet the gambler will not be to bothered because they know that over the long run, if they only place a bet when the football odds are right they will show a profit and to the professional gambler, that is all that really matters.

They don't bet for the enjoyment or just because they feel that they have to make a bet. They bet for one reason and one reason only and they know that if the value is on their side for the football bets that they place they will do very well indeed.

Football odds will often vary between sportsbook to sportsbook and you would be amazed at the difference between some of them. Many of these sportsbooks just follow the others and move their football odds accordingly but there are a few movers and shakers in the industry that are worth following because just by watching these football odds contract, you will find that is a massive tip in itself and more often than not the odds are contracting because that is where the big boys are putting their money.

For some of the big football matches it will take a awful lot of money to move the football odds in this way so it should really be noted. You are basically getting free knowledge and I myself am aware of a number of astute punters who make their money in this way. ScoresAndOdds.com are a book that I find is always worth following the football odds. They, along with Sports.com are prepared to take on the big boys but it is only perfect business sense that if they are prepared to get involved in this activity they will contract or lengthen their prices when the money is down. All you really have to do is watch and wait and when you spot an opportunity be prepared to dive in because the football odds won't last for long.

It is also worth bearing in mind that if the football odds start to get bigger it is a sign that the football team in question is not fancied to do the business and the sportsbook are making the price more attractive to try and draw some money in. Football odds can get quite complex at times and move in and out with the weight of money and you will find it to be more a case of luck if you can get the best football odds or not. What it boils down to is if you think that there is value in the odds, and if there is it is a case of 'job done' for you.

I may have become biassed over the years but I have always been extremely happy with the football odds that are on offer from ScoresAndOdds.com. I find that they move slow enough for me to help myself when I feel that the football odds offer good value. The interface on the website makes it easy to get a bet on, unlike some of its competitors where you have to click on all manner of options only to find that the football odds have changed and you have missed the opportunity to place a bet.

Something else that you should be aware of regarding football odds that may sound stupid but make sure that you have enough money in your sportsbook account. I remember the time when I was waiting for an opportunity to place a bet for what seemed like ages and when the football odds changed I clicked on the button to place the bet only to realise that I hadn't funded the sportsbook account. Absolutely unbelievable on my part but I must say that I definitely learnt my lesson and now every time I am ready to make a bet I make sure that I have topped up my sportsbook account. If I remember rightly, the sportsbook in question was ScoresAndOdds.com and as that as always been a book that I use on a regular basis I really should have known better!

I always find that the best time to get the best football odds is just before the match starts. To give you a good idea just look at the football odds around 20 minutes before the match starts and you will see what I mean.
