How to read football

Better typing

Typing looks easier than it is. Of course, a lot depends on luck, but for a whole season it is usually the tippers who are better who are ahead. Typing is not a game of chance!

Typing behavior naturally depends on the individual rule settings of the betting community, but a few principles should be observed.

Because with a few tricks you can quickly increase your yield:

Tip 1: Predict home win more often

The home win is by far the most common result in football leagues. Of course the 12th man helps. The home advantage has the following statistical effects: In the 1st Bundesliga there are usually between 43% and 49% home wins. With a tip on the home team you are therefore not so wrong at first.

Tip 2: A tie often ends 1: 1

A draw is 1: 1 in almost 50% of the cases. If you decide to draw, you should therefore usually bet 1: 1. This increases the chance of a result hit.

Tip 3: Home win with one goal difference

Home wins come out with only one goal difference in 40% of the cases. A 2: 0 tip is therefore more risky than a 2: 1 tip, even if a 2: 0 is a very common end result, you only get extra points for the correct goal difference in about 27% of the cases. A goal difference of 1, on the other hand, occurs in 45% of the cases.

Tip 4: bet on favorites more often

Many typing is way too risky. They constantly hope for the outsider's sensation. You can of course include a risky tip per game day, but the risk should be well chosen. If you bet on the favorite and lose it, you won't get any points. But most of the time neither do the others. It all comes down to setting the right nuances.

Tip 5: Current form of the teams

The table is often looked at to decide who is the favorite and who is the underdog. Sometimes the table of the last 6-8 games is better suited for this. With Kicktipp you can change the table view accordingly. Then it is also worth taking a look at the home or away table. Valuable knowledge often emerges there.
