Hockey and basketball betting strategies[ 24.08.16 ]
Talking from sports betting perspective, hockey and basketball are sports with pretty specific features. Our website offers detailed reviews of effective hockey and basketball betting strategies. This article explores simple hockey and basketball betting systems which are easy-to-understand even by beginning and yet inexperienced bettors.
Hockey betting strategy
It’s no surprise that hockey is enjoyed worldwide. One of the world’s most spectacular and action-packed team sports, the game of hockey is just as attractive for sports fans as basketball and tennis. Of course, professional bettors have developed their own profitable betting strategies for hockey. Some hockey betting systems are very similar to betting systems applied in other sports. A most obvious example is live spread betting. According to this smart strategy, you need to place a bet on outsider. Once the outsider opens the score or starts to lead (which is a quite common hockey scenario), you need to place an opposite bet on favorite. Other examples include betting systems based on savvy bankroll distribution.
We think that Giffen system deserves a more detailed consideration. According to this strategy, each of your bets must bring profit amounting to 1% of your bankroll. Different bet types and odds require different bet sizes. The higher the odds for your selected sports event (and the game of hockey features high odds pretty often), the smaller is your bet. If your first bet lost, you need to win 2% of your bankroll with your next bet, and so on. Add 1% to every new bet until you win. Once you place a successful bet, go back and start with 1% again. According to the author of this amazing strategy, he has never lost more than two consecutive bets. But beware and do not lose touch with your inner sceptic.
Basketball betting strategies
Most basketball betting strategies revolve around quarters. According to one of such strategies, the favorite must win at least in one quarter. By using Martingale strategy, you can make profits in almost every basketball match. But there is no flawless betting system, and this one is no exception. The biggest con of this betting strategy is that odds on favorite’s victory (even in one quarter) are usually very low. If the favorite is not in the right shape, they may lose all four quarters.
Likewise, you can bet on underdog’s winning in any quarter. In this case, bookmakers offer much higher odds. In hockey, situations where all four quarters are won by the same experienced team, are quite rare. Another betting strategy includes calculating totals in order to find a mistake in a bookmaker’s estimations. This is quite a challenging task, though. First, bookmaker analysts are very experienced and knowledgeable. Second, in basketball it’s not uncommon that just bits of a point separate a team from the victory. Furthermore, basketball bettors apply strategies similar to live spread betting used by volleyball fans.
