Soccer (or football literally everywhere besides the United States) is arguably the most popular sport in the world. Not convinced? It’s played by 250 million players in over 200 countries and dependencies. The FIFA World Cup is the most watched sporting event in the world. Objectively, it is the most popular.

So, it stands to reason that you could make a lot of money if you gambled on the many games being played all throughout regular season. But how does one go about making the right decisions at the right time? Let’s find out together.

Make a decision on where you’re going to bet. Do your homework. The Internet is your friend. Google is your faithful companion. Google ‘ reputable bookmakers’. You’re already on your way. Immediately, the first result page will give you a list of reliable sites for online booking including: Bet365, Ladbrokes, Coral, and Unibet. Use your best judgement and pick a site. Go for what is best for you.

Now that you have that, you have to find a place to…place your bet. If you’re American, the only state where betting on Soccer ISN’T illegal is Nevada (of course). Las Vegas is the only city in the country where you can place bets on the sport, at any casino peppered on its Strip and beyond it. Sportsbetting is legal and regulated in the European Union with a strong set of laws governing it. Finding more information about this is as easy as performing yet another google search.

Speaking of another google search, if you do live in the US but don’t want to make the trip to the City of Sin just to bet on Soccer, you can bet online. Register an account with the site and put currency in your account. 5Dimes and Bovada are two of the most well-known sports betting sites. Take your pick. This comes with a bit of a caveat, however: online betting can be questionable legality wise. So, do so at your own risk.

So, you’ve done your research, you know where to place your bets and how to go about doing so. Now…do you know anything about the teams you’re about to risk your hard-earned cash on in the first place? Probably not, right? That’s ok. Run another Google search. Search for “soccer betting tips” and research, you’ll probably stumble upon several sites that offer information, like situs judi online. Get yourself informed with the players, teams, their statistics and trends.

Understand the odds. And place your bets. Pick the team that has the best outcome of winning based on these facts.There is a science to this, of course. There are scores of information online dedicated to teach you how to do so. Utilize them and get a feel for what you’re doing. Anything worth knowing is worth looking into.
