Many of you are wondering if there is a good time to bet in the year. Can major competitions or championship goals earn you more? Or is it better to bet at the start of the championship? I answer you in this article.

What is the Right Time to Bet, and the Bad? 

In every sport, there is a championship. This championship necessarily has a beginning, an end and an “in between” (mid-championship). What you need to know is that each of these parts has its specificities. And it is not necessarily easy to break for the lambda bettor who suddenly does not find when the right time to bet is even with free bets.

You have probably already played the 1st day of the championship. It may have been a disaster. Similarly for your sports bets on the last matches of the tournament. Two catastrophic periods for you while you made profits between these two other periods. This is because the other periods require different searches, a separate analysis.

In basketball, at the end of the season, we talk about tanking. This means that teams drop games if they have nothing left to lose. This allows them to have the lowest possible ranking to benefit from better drafting rounds.

In tennis, the Davis Cup is not always conducive to the arrival of tenors for various reasons. There may be a Davis Cup round behind a GC tournament or merely a player fatigue.

For some sports, there are more specific periods during the championship. For example, the rugby 6 nations tournament has a lot of players in some teams and so in the doubles (championships and tournament of the 6 nations) it poses problems of numbers.

Do these moments benefit bettors or bookmakers?

There are Two Competing Factors

  • Those who say that these opportune moments are to the advantage of the punters
  • Those who say they are the advantage of bookmakers

I would not decide for either of them. For me, the bookmaker will reflect on the mass of bettors (he adapts these odds according to the amount of money that is put on a team or the other) while the bettor will think for himself what has nothing to see.

A seasoned bettor will be able to take advantage of these opportune moments to take betting offers at the opening of markets for example, while the mass of punters will not necessarily identify these values. He will bet before the bookmakers will change the odds following the bets of many bettors and the latest information released officially.

The most striking example is when a reputed tipster will take a bet for him, the odds will not budge. On the other hand, when he puts it in public, the mass of bettors who follow him will lower the odds, and therefore the value will tend to diminish or even disappear (If you react too late or it’s a niche market). With the experience, you will know these opportune moments, and you will be able to anticipate them and thus benefit from the values. Finding values is the nerve of war in betting, although it’s often a complicated concept for new bettors to understand.
