Soccer has long been the favorite sport of many people. It is also very popular in betting. Soccer online today breaks all records in the number of bets made (betting in live mode is especially popular) and in the level of popularity of broadcasts. With the development of the Internet, modern bettors have a great opportunity to make bets without leaving home.
Experienced players can confidently say that during the pre-match analysis it is necessary to take into account not only the main factors influencing the final result, but also many additional factors that seem unimportant at first glance. These include mistakes made by the referees.
Referee errors: how a bettor should use this factor when betting?
No game is immune from referee mistakes, despite the existence of the VAR system today. Its main goal is to minimize the number of gross errors of the referees. However, there are still complaints about the referees, so their mistakes still have a significant impact on the result of the game. Bettors have learned to use such situations in betting. Experienced players recommend take into account the following:
- A mistake made at the beginning of the game often leads to a large number of yellow cards. The appearance of such a situation at the start causes tension and a storm of emotions. In this context, the players lose control and begin to make rude tackles at their opponents. Therefore, an experienced player can easily take advantage of the moment and bet on the total of yellow and red cards or the number of fouls.
- Some bookmaker’s offices provide the opportunity to bet on such an interesting moment, such as a yellow or red card for the coach. Often this bet can be used when the referee makes a gross mistake in the first half, at the end of which an extremely emotional coach can begin to express his dissatisfaction. Such a reaction can lead to getting a card. To make such bets, it is necessary to know which teams’ coaches can be unrestrained and impulsive. It is worth paying attention to such situations in live mode. It is possible to skillfully use the moment, making a bet on the card for the coach.
- Often a mistake of the referee leads to one of the teams scoring in the next 15 minutes. Some clubs lose confidence and concede goals, while others begin to play more assertively and aggressively. Therefore, conceded goals are the most common consequence of referee error.
- If, about 15 minutes before the end of the meeting, the gap in the number of goals scored between the teams is minimal, the probability of both referee errors and warnings increases. This is due to the fact that the teams will begin to actively fight for the victory.
It is worth looking for the most favorable situations for betting on referee error, the number of yellow and red cards, and other indicators related to the refereeing factor, at the beginning of the first half. If no cards were shown during the first 25 minutes of the game, then the number of cards is unlikely to be too high later on. If, however, from the first minutes the referee is quite tough on the players, you should wait for the right moment to make a bet.
Do not ignore the statistics on referees. Such information can easily be found on the website Scores24. These indicators are important and necessary in live betting.
It is very important for bettors to be extremely attentive, watch how events develop on the field, and the actions of referees. Sometimes referees begin to play the role of “first fiddle” on the field and make gross errors. In these situations it is safe to bet on a large number of yellow cards, a warning or suspension of the coach.
In order not to miss all the important moments, it is best to follow the game in real time. This will give an opportunity to quickly respond to changes and get a good income from the bet. Experienced bettors often predict the course of the match from the first minutes of the game, but beginners need to learn, gain experience and knowledge. This will help avoid many mistakes and increase the results of betting.
