- Betting has become a solution to many unemployed youths in Kenya
- However, there are certain things people should know before placing their bets
With unemployment rate at its pick in the country, many youths have resolved to gamble as the only source of income. Others take it as a supplement to their low paying jobs.
However, their efforts in making a fortune out of their stake leave them frustrated and miserable. Many want to use shortcuts to rip big from bookies by buying fixed matches but their picks seem not to obey their instincts.
I walked into a cyber and found John (not his real name) seated with his wife busy analyzing expectations but one thing strikes my mind. What can you do to win big and even defeat the pundits and experts?
Here are the findings;
Before you stake any amount of money on any team, you should be well versed in the history of the teams. Check to establish if the teams you placing your money on have ever met in the past and relate the possible outcomes in the previous encounters with what you want to play.
Always be keen to follow the team news to know who is in and out, which team is enjoying a positive season, who is struggling, who needs points more than the other and how important is the final outcome to either of the teams.
This information can play a vital role in guiding you on what you should do with your money as far as staking is.concerned.
We tend to pick teams with the lowest odds, however, with cases of match-fixing common today, it is worth noting that bookies will always mislead you to lose even more.
In the recent past, football governing bodies have sanctioned teams especially in the lower ties to be influencing outcomes of their matches and this is something worth revisiting before thinking of gambling.
Odds are classified in such a manner that a team with the lowest odd is tipped to be strong and with higher chances of winning but this ain't true in some selected cases.
While gambling, avoid repeating teams no matter how strong they are. Something can happen, choose a different market if you really have to take it as an option in your bet.
Be cautious not to pick obvious markets as they are prone to manipulation. Take rare teams as their chances of winning is guaranteed.
No one thinks of such markets and therefore your choice matters and can a great deal towards your success with gambling.
Minimize the number of picks that you go for anytime you betting. The more the selections, the higher your chances of losing.
Consider single bets or if possible consider two markets and stake high to maximize your profits.
Always be on the lookout to ignore 'giants' when they are away from their home tough. Giants, in this case, I'm referring to teams with notable success in their various leagues.
In such cases, when they are sitting comfortably in their leagues, they always play to entertain and not Kern to your personal gains or wishes.
Minimize your research. The more you research, the more you get confused. Bookies will also tend to change the odds to work on your psychology and thus makes your judgment impaired.
When your brain is interfered with, your picks will as well not represent your conscience. When all this is observed be sure you will make a fortune out of gambling.
