True, you can win.It’s interesting to hear about it from a bookies side.
I started gambling 4 years ago and have consistently made a small profit. Around £200 a year then this year I have almost tripled that.
Reality is football fans know football and if you bet correctly and logically there is no reason you cannot win.
Partisanship plays a part in skewing the odds so a game like Liverpool in the CL final is a gamblers dream. Wait for the scousers to bet on their team and then bet against it.
I have a pragmatic approach and have made a few mistakes.
But if you bet on what you know then there’s no reason you cannot win.
But it helps to remember you are the gambler, the bookies aren't gamblers. In fact, they are allergic to gambling and risk, they want to get rid of it, so they sell it (at a profit), and the punters are the buyers.
And the bookies know they would go out of business if no one ever won. So they depend on the vast majority of punters believing they can join the tiny minority of winners.
It's business, and it works.
