In order to make money off sports betting, you have to do so much more than to just bet. I mean, do you really think that you will ever become rich if you only bet on your favorite team ever Sunday? Of course not! If you are looking for something more than just pure entertainment when you bet, you need to invest quite some time in sports betting in order to become profitable. In this article I wanted to go over some good tips on how to actually become good at sports betting.

Lets start off with the most important thing: Knowledge. Without knowledge, no one would ever be able to make a lot of money off betting, unless of course they got extremely lucky. But luck is something we don’t want to rely on when making a career out of sports betting! So the first thing you need to do is definitely to learn about the different sports you are going to bet on. The most popular sport to bet on  in Europe is football, and that is also a sport that you are likely to already know at least something about. Use services like in order to obtain information about the upcoming games!

It is extremely important to actually do some proper research before you place a bet on a game. You might find a game that you think has extremely good odds, but that usually has a reason. Say that a team that is in the lower half of the division meets the team that leads the league, and the odds maker has given the odds that the lower division has a greater chance of winning the game. That would immediately make you interested in putting a bet on the league leaders, as you think they would easily win the game. But before you do that, you need to look up both teams, in order to see if there’s a logical reason as to why the odds have been valued in such an unusual game. Maybe it is the end of the league, and the winning team has already guaranteed their place as number one, which leads them to play with a lot of reserves on the field as they don’t have anything to play for anymore, while the other team are fighting to not get knocked out of the league, which would give them a lot of motivation to win the game? You can find a useful guide on what to look for in a game on this page.

Another thing I warmly recommend you to do, is to get involved in some sort of betting community. The reason for this is, that in my experience, some of the most valuable knowledge I have gathered in the game has come from fellow punters, and not from books or other websites. It’s also a great way of making a couple of new friends to chat with – I mean, after all, you will already have common interests with them which means your conversations will probably go well. You can find different betting communities online easy, by either searching for them with Google, or visiting websites like

The final thing I would like to address, is the fact that you need to think that sports betting is fun in order to do it! If you don’t have fun when you are betting, you will never really get good, as your mind won’t be willing to quickly absorb all the information that is out there.
