I was recently asked by Mark OHaire from @Welovebetting to take part in their “Ask the experts” series and one of the questions asked was if I had any advice for punters looking to try and find an edge, and it got me thinking.
If I was only able to give one piece of advice regarding betting it would be centred around finding a niche, finding a league or a market and becoming an expert on it, make that your speciality, be the go to person when it comes to certain markets and leagues or even a team.
Punters probably make the mistake of casting their net far and wide, having a little knowledge about lots of leagues when they could turn it on its head and focus their efforts on building up a solid understanding of a handful of leagues. Get to know the teams, the data, the trends, identify the go to teams for the markets you like to bet on.
When I think about my own betting experiences, I target the same leagues week in and week out, I don't' need to look through 200 games on a Saturday as I know I'm going to be fo on the Scottish leagues and even then I'm not having to look through 21 games as I know the teams to be backing and the teams not to be backing.
The Mr Fixit betting community is a terrific platform for people to share their tips and we have a number of contributors who specialise in niche leagues and markets and I'm keen to hone in on that and get a view of where people feel their knowledge and expertise sits
Where is your area of expertise?
- Is there a league or country you specialise in?
- Is there a certain market you concentrate on?
- Is there a team you always back, and why?
Leave a comment below and I'll pull together a summary of what our favourite leagues and markets are
