Tennis Betting Tips

This action-packed sport is among the most exciting to watch, and its pace means that you’ll need quick wits and a smart strategy to make the smartest bets possible, especially with many major tournaments hosting huge upsets in recent years. Are you on the hunt for the best bookmakers to bet on tennis with, alongside the finest betting tips? If so, look no further than our guide to the best tennis betting sites.

Golf Betting Tips

This is a game that requires patience and dedication to master, and indeed, for those who consider themselves golf aficionados, it requires a great deal of passion and persistence to truly understand its nuances. Our betting tips for golf, alongside our list of the best golf betting sites, quite literally go all across the world, covering tournaments big and small, from local to international events.

Horse Racing Betting Tips

The granddaddy of all modern sports betting is horse racing, and it remains to this day one of the most popular options all over the world. We cover events for this sport, no matter their size, from all around the UK and beyond. Its simplicity makes it accessible, but it can also be deceptive, as it takes serious expertise, thought and strategy to really make the most of your horse racing bets. Naturally, this is where our horse racing betting tips come in! To find out where best to utilise our horse racing tips, check out our guide on the best horse racing betting sites.

Snooker Betting Tips

This is another absolute classic for bettors. Snooker is an intellectually demanding game that’s more about skill and strategy than physical prowess. Fortunately, our site provides plenty of general betting tips for this sport, as well as an in-depth analysis of its major tournaments and a list of the best snooker betting sites.

Rugby Betting Tips

In contrast to our last example, this is a sport that requires a fair bit of raw athletic talent to be amongst the best of the best. Having said that, it’s also a thinking man’s game, and understanding the rules and nuances of both the game and of its tournaments is vital to success. Here's a list of all the best rugby betting sites, alongside our highly useful and strategic betting tips.

Darts Betting Tips

In a way, this is a game rather similar to snooker, putting the players' hand eye co-ordination and precision to the test. Its simplicity, at least in its concept, also makes it a very popular one to bet on. However, being easy to understand doesn’t mean that making successful bets is just as easy. Nevertheless, you can give yourself a leg up by checking out our guide to the best darts betting sites, together with our top betting tips on key events to help unravel its mysteries.

Greyhounds Betting Tips

It may not quite have the popularity of horse racing – although it is still extremely popular – but you should still give greyhound racing the respect, attention and thought it deserves if you want to make the most out of your betting chances. Fed up of being an underdog (pardon the pun)? Then be sure to check out our betting tips and list of best greyhound betting sites, and race your way to the very top.

Cricket Betting Tips

Taking place over several days, cricket is one of the most in-depth sports out there. It’s the kind of game you can sit back and really just get invested in, while losing yourself in all the drama and excitement. The only thing that could make that better is an intelligently placed bet to ramp up the intrigue even more. If you want some assistance in smarter betting on this complicated but fascinating game, we’re here to help, not only with our list of expert betting tips but also a guide on the best cricket betting sites out there.

Motor Racing Betting Tips

To someone not interested in motor racing, this sport can seem a little brainless at first glance. But those in the know understand it’s the finer details which actually make motor racing one of the most intense, deep and intellectually taxing in the world. With that in mind, you’ll want every edge you can possibly get. That means you’ll want to check out our list of the best Formula 1 betting sites, alongside our carefully curated betting tips.

Boxing / MMA Betting Tips

Combat sports have exploded in betting popularity over the years, but a lot of people still aren’t making the most of their bets and are going on gut instinct rather than sound reasoning, logic and well-researched betting tips. The latter can – alongside picking only the best UFC betting sites – help make your bets more successful and gain absolute knockouts when it comes to winnings.

Cycling Betting Tips

While cycling in general isn’t at the absolute top of most popular sports to bet on year-round, that all changes when the epic Tour de France makes its return. And you’ll need some solid betting tips, as well as a list of the best cycling betting sites, to make it through the marathon ahead of the pack.

Esports Betting Tips

This isn’t just a sport: it’s a whole genre of sports, many of which have all the complexity and detail of a well-played chess game. This means you’ll need to be on absolute top form to make intelligent predictions. Of course, we wouldn’t dream of missing out on what, for us, is one of the most exciting developments in the sports world in decades. If you don’t want to miss out either, check out not only our betting tips on events all around the world, but also our collection of the best esports betting sites available.

American Sports Betting Tips

Although a lot of our sporting focus is based in the UK and Europe, we still haven’t forgotten about our friends across the pond. Neither has the online betting world, meaning an awful lot of work went into selecting the best NBA betting sites. We’re also well aware these are sports that people are extremely passionate about, and want to learn more about generally, as well as how to make smart bets in the process – learn how with our exclusive betting tips.

Novelty Betting Tips

These betting tips today could be about pretty much anything, as long as they don’t fall into those traditional betting categories. That means that we really have to dig deep to provide in-depth analysis and betting tips on one-off individual betting events, which you can find by heading over to our article on the best novelty betting sites.

 

How We Keep Our Betting tips at the Highest Possible Quality

Providing betting tips today involves a whole lot of variety in terms of how we go about the process, as all sports are different. They have individual characteristics and need to be approached in an individual way. For instance, injuries play a bigger factor in rugby than they do for darts, so that part of our research changes.

That’s why we have so many different guides, because we know that the only way to provide quality betting tips is to not expect one approach to suit all. That said, there are certain things we do in order to ensure that our betting tips are the best they possibly can be. Here’s a few key rules we follow to ensure every betting tip we give is to the highest possible standard.

1. Using passionate writers

This one really is a no-brainer. You want betting tips, free, from someone who cares about and is familiar with the sport in question. There’s just a level of knowledge that comes from being a passionate fan that is unrealistic to expect someone without any prior knowledge to be able to attain.

It’s not just a case of it being nice for people to write about things they are passionate about; it’s also a strategic advantage. All those hours spent watching your favourite sports provide a base level of knowledge. You’ll notice that we often say that it’s a good idea – if you can keep yourself from emotionally betting – to bet on what you know. Well, it’s very much the same for us. We only write about what we know, and what we are passionate about.

2. Utilising our years of expertise

Of course, it takes more than just being a fan. We’re not saying that enjoying a sport and being passionate, therefore, means you are going to make better bets. If that were true, bookmakers would probably make much more moderate profits. But it is a starting point.

Upon that starting point, we have years of experience and expertise of analysing what does and does not work and what to look out for in terms of seeking out the best betting markets. Everything we say is backed by years of ceaseless scrutiny and expertise.

3. Doing diligent research

All things considered, though, expertise is nothing if we don’t do the work. Hours upon hours of painstaking research is what goes into all of our betting tips, and no substitute exists for all this thought and effort. Bear in mind, of course, that every game and every market is different, and there are specifics that we cannot help you with.

What we can do though, say, with a tournament, is provide a base level of research and tips on that event, which you can use as a platform to help you make better betting decisions.

That is just one example; it could be betting tips on a sport generally or a single event. Whatever advice we can provide, based on all that expertise and research, we do our utmost to give you the very best. In a nutshell, we do that hard work, so you don’t have to.

4. Treating the reader as an individual

One important thing to note, and something that is extremely important to us, is that we treat the reader as an individual. Now, you may be wondering exactly how we treat people as individuals, when we can’t exactly tailor our advice for each person reading it. Well, what we mean is that our advice is always written with the knowledge that not all people bet the same way, so we always make clear that you should take that advice and mould it to your betting style as best as possible.

For instance, we may say it is a good idea to bet on teams that you are knowledgeable about. However, we would advise otherwise if you do not think you are capable of being objective, because you’ll be betting for what you want to happen, rather than what you think will happen. Alternatively, we may advise you to utilise the Cash Out feature if you regularly find your bets failing past a certain point.

Those are just a couple of examples and, of course, it all depends on the individual tournament, sport and circumstances. What is important is that when we write our advice, the fact that not everyone has the same style or strengths when betting is always something we take into account.

5. Not promising anything we cannot deliver

There’s arguably no more important rule when it comes to betting tips today than this. What we can do is provide you with sound, sensible advice that can help you bet in a way which is more enjoyable and has the potential to be more successful in the long run. However, what we never do is say that we can guarantee a winning bet, or betting success in general.

Betting is always a risk and, no matter how sensibly or carefully you go about it, that will never change. Losing is always a possibility, even for the smartest bettors in the world. That’s why we never promise things that we cannot deliver. If any betting tipster tells you they can guarantee winning wagers, then you should consider their advice compromised in general. We provide the best advice and tips we possibly can, but we cannot provide any kind of magic formula.

 

How to Incorporate Kickform Into Your Betting Strategy

Football predictions and betting recommendations (source: KickForm)

We’ve taken our betting tips for today to another level with KickForm. This is a scientific means of predicting football results that uses algorithms to provide as accurate mathematical tips as possible. It’s not just an amazing tool in general, but is also the perfect addition to the expert tips we provide here.

Say, for instance, you want to bet on a game on the FIFA World Cup, and we have an article of tips on exactly that. We would say that the best use of all the tools available at ThePuntersPage would be to read through the article to get a general overview of tips and strategies based on that tournament. At this point, you can then go into KickForm to get some further mathematical insight on individual games.

By bringing together our tips, mathematical analysis and your own personal feelings in terms of the likelihood of events, you can then come to a much more considered bet and/or betting strategy than would have otherwise been possible. We don’t want to consider the tips from our experts and the tips from KickForm to be one or the other; they are by far best implemented when utilised as a partnership.

 

What About Betting Tips for Accumulators?

bet365's Soccer Accumulator Bonus (source: bet365)

We don’t usually focus on accumulators for our betting tips today. This isn’t because we dislike accumulators – as a matter of fact, we think of them as one of the most interesting ways to bet around, and we think their ability to provide additional entertainment across large tournaments is great.

With that said, they are very complicated, and we think that it is generally more useful to focus on tournaments and specific sports, and then allow people to apply that to their own accumulators as best they see fit. Still, there are a couple of pieces of advice we’d give to accumulator fans.

1. Go small for the best results

Accumulators can be a great way to provide intrigue across several events. However, the reason you hear those stories about people winning an absolute fortune from accumulators is that they really aren’t very likely to happen.

Look, we’re not telling anyone not to live the dream and go for huge odds if they want. But our betting tips have to be grounded in reality. Being right about many bets over and over is very hard, and it is tough to maintain a quality strategy throughout. Therefore, you’ll want to go small for the (likely) best results.

2. Go big for enjoyment

Let’s be real – accumulators are popular because people enjoy them. And that’s just fine. If your £5 accumulator keeps you thrilled for several games and you lose the bet in the end, we’d say that’s still a fiver well spent. And because accumulators can offer big odds for small amounts, you can enjoy them without needing to risk a lot of money. So, feel free to go big for enjoyment, but just don’t always expect to win.

3. Remember why bookies love accumulators

The reason why we’ve given the two previous tips is partially down to the bookmakers’ margin. Now, every bet you place has a bookmakers’ margin. Usually it’s just a few percent above 100%, but with accumulators, it can morph into a rather large difference. And that’s why bookmakers love them – they get much bigger margins than they would ever otherwise get away with.

That is part and parcel of what accumulators are. This doesn’t make them not worth your while, but we just want you to be realistic about your chances of winning those monster accas.

4. Take advantage of the bookie’s generosity

One huge upside to bookmakers’ love for accumulators is that you will often get some really excellent promotional offers. We cover these and much more in our list of best betting promotions, which we encourage you to check out so you'll know where to find the best offers. Bookies want to encourage people to use accumulators, and are often willing to be quite generous to convince you to do so. We advise you to take full advantage of any and all good accumulator bonuses when you can.

5. Find a consistent thread

A key betting tip here, in our opinion, is to find a consistent thread across your bets. In other words, you don’t want to contradict the logic of one bet with another. If you bet for a team to play defensively in one game, for instance, but offensively in the next, then you need to have a logical reason for why that is. Your bets should create a narrative to how you think the whole series of events is going to transpire.

 

What if You Just Want to Go With Your Gut?

We are immensely proud of our betting tips today here at ThePuntersPage. We think they offer a lot of value, and we work very hard on them. Nonetheless, we are aware that for a lot of people, the enjoyment of betting is just going with what you feel and seeing if that pays off. You may base it on whatever horse name jumps out at you or even just what team you want to win, thinking that if they do, it will sweeten the deal.

All of that is completely fine. At the end of the day, the point of betting should be to enhance your enjoyment of your favourite sports. If that achieves that for you, then great. However, we would say that your chances of winning are, in our opinion, much lower than a carefully considered and well-researched approach. But ultimately, how you bet is entirely down to you.

ThePuntersPage Final Say

One of the misconceptions about taking a more analytical, thoughtful approach to betting is that it can take away some of the enjoyment of betting. While you should always bet in the way that you find works for you, at the end of the day, betting should be about getting the most out of sports, and we don’t believe that this is the case for most people.

Actually, we find that when most people start looking more deeply into logic and strategy before placing bets – something we help facilitate with our betting tips – they actually discover a new appreciation and understanding of their favourite sports, even deepening their enjoyment in the process. So, not only do we think that this approach can provide better bets, but it can also result in a greater passion for the sports you love.
