If you have the tolerance and the discipline and you understand that sports betting is not an as easy business as it looks, instead it is one which requires constant calculations of the odds at any particular duration of the game, then you can definitely find yourself winning a number of times. Ofcourse it’s betting hence there will always be times when you will lose but all you need to do is simply win more than you lose.

The most of the triumphant gamblers are those who know to place their bets only on those sections for which the value of the odds are fairly high for that particular segment. Quite a number of people do not pay heed to this concept of ‘value betting’ and hence lose.

The next step after figuring out the valuable bet is the conversion of the odds into implied probability. This can be done by simply replacing the numerator of the given fraction with its denominator and replacing the denominator with the sum of the numerical values of both the numerator and denominator. This fraction on being converted into percentage gives the implied probability. For example, if it is 3/2 then the resulting fraction which we will get will be 2/5 giving a 40% implied probability. Now if you think that the event has more probability of succeeding that just showed by the odds then you have a good chance of winning it.

Finally you also should keep in mind to compare the odds that are being offered by the online UK bookmakers. This can be only done by doing some extensive research about the team’s individual winning or losing streaks, details of individual players performances in previous games played, results of the previous matches played between the teams and many such other crucial factors. It is only by putting efforts that you will be able to reap the sweeter fruits.
