A good soccer strategy: Martingale to the drawFootball bets
We explain what the Martingale betting strategy consists of a draw, one of the strategies that can give you the best results.
Within football betting strategies, we are going to analyze one that is still considered by some to be controversial but that is still a good option to obtain benefits. We talked about the Martingale strategy to draw. Initially it is mandatory to define the term Martingale for sports betting and it is about betting a certain amount of start and in case of losing, double the investment until the success is achieved. From there, it starts again. That is, return to the initial amount and repeat this process each time a bet is won.
Why is it advisable to use the draw in this system? Because the tie in football provides a multiplier factor that is always high enough so that at the time of winning, the benefit covers the losses that may exist and also generates profits.
Now, we had mentioned in the initial paragraph that among football betting strategies this is controversial, and this is because those who criticize its use, claim that it is very risky because it can quickly deplete the amount allocated to bet, but this risk can be reduced with an adequate bankroll, plus the use of a low stake as the starting point of the system (it is recommended that it does not exceed 2% of the total bankroll), and it may even be favorable to have more than one bookmaker available, for that if you have to double the investment in succession, the limit that may be imposed on the amount to play does not affect the development of the strategy.
But if there is a factor that is fundamental to the success of the Martingale strategy to draw is the study that must be carried out on the leagues and teams that can favor its use, which implies that the bettor has to be very familiar with the framework that surround the clubs to include in the bet. The historical statistics of the main European leagues, show us that equality with the blank board and 1-1, are the most frequent draws, therefore one of the ways to increase the chance of success, is to select teams poor scoring ability or good defense (ideally combine both characteristics).
As examples, let’s review Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao of the Spanish league in their recently finished 2017-18 campaign, which were the teams with the most draws during the season, and both clubs meet the ideal characteristics for this strategy in football betting.Espanyol was the 4th team that scored the least goals and the 5th that received the least, while Bilbao was the 6th worst in goals scored and the 7th best in goals allowed.
Another detail to take into account, is that if at the beginning of any league statistics from the previous campaign are going to be used, it is necessary to have the forecast to review the transfer market, since high or low of important players can change the tendency to result of a team from one season to another.
