Lessons From the Cup


Futures betting is one the most popular forms of online sports gambling.  This form of betting usually involves you placing a bet on distant future events.  There are a host of websites that offer futures betting services.  These websites will provide prospective bettors with odds and lines for the particular sport they are interested in.  For example, if you were interested in betting on an event like the World Cup, a futures bet allows you to place a bet before the tournament starts.  It is also important to mention that in futures betting, you are only required to choose the winner of the competition. So far as the sport you are betting on has current open events or is in season, you will always have futures betting services at your disposal.  Moreover, it does seem like the notion that futures betting is on the decline might be a valid one.  This is because an increasing number of bookmakers and bettors are beginning to realize just how risky this form of betting actually is.


Nowadays, for the most part, you would find that the favorites to win a game or a tournament seldom do so.  Upsets are so common that they tend to be the rule instead of the exception. It is usually those teams or players not tipped to do so well that turn out to be the victors in the end.  For instance, in the case of the World Cup, the tournament favorites were Brazil and perhaps Germany.  However, these two teams turned out to be rather disappointing, both in some of their performances and the overall progress they made in the competition.  On the other hand, teams like Portugal actually did very well and almost made it all the way to the finals. For this reason, a lot of bookmakers and bettors are beginning to feel that the chance of winning a futures bet is becoming very slim indeed.  Furthermore, the odds in futures betting are always changing all the way up to the commencement of the actual event.  Futures betting boards are always subject to fluctuations and regular updates and this makes selecting picks very difficult.


In the past, bettors were quite confident in betting on the pundits’ favorite picks.  Now, bettors think twice about this before doing so.  It is also important to mention that futures betting pundits always have a tendency to create a bandwagon betting type of scenario.  This is because when bettors see the favorite picks of the pundits, it is rather easy for them to get sucked in and to join the bandwagon of other bettors.  Betting in this way is very popular, and the rewards can be substantial.  However, it is commonly the case now that things do not go as planned in sporting games and tournaments.  Bettors are beginning to become weary of bandwagon betting.


At this junction, it is probably a good idea to mention that things are not all bad.  Futures betting does have some good points.  The main merit of futures betting is the fact that it provides the bettor with very high odds.  Even though chances of winning futures bets are getting slimmer, the monetary rewards for winning these types of bets are very attractive.  With this in mind, whatever your sport of interest, if you are going to engage in futures betting you should do your own homework.  You should also ensure that you have properly weighed the pros and cons of futures betting.  Furthermore, prospective futures bettors should always have at the back of their minds that though this form of betting is getting riskier by the moment, the rewards are great.
