Handicap markets are very popular in the world of sports betting and tend to attract investment from all types of bettors, not just those who already have more experience in this industry.
When you are analyzing teams to choose how you are going to bet on a handicap market, you will always have a tendency to find and start by seeing that the best attacks win games. However, you should always pay attention to the defense: as they say, “the best attack is the defense” and it is the most consistent teams behind that sometimes end up winning the game.
We could give countless examples, but do you remember Inter Milan who won everything with Jose Mourinho? It was far from being the most virtuous team on the offensive level, but defensively, it had almost unmatched security in European football at the time.
As the handicap means taking or giving goals (in the case of football) to a certain team, you should always keep this in mind, because sometimes when you think that the team will win by a lot of goals and do a handicap to remove a goal or two goals, always suggest that the opposing defense is consistent, so it is not always advisable to choose a negative handicap (“-“).
Remember: a football match is a duel between two forces, each with their own arguments and specifics. Furthermore, not only negative handicaps are placed on this type of market, so it is advisable to also look at positive handicaps (“+”).
At the time of the team analysis, there is a figure that many punters end up disregarding and that can make all the difference. The coach and his entire technical team are very important, as they are the ones who define the strategy to be adopted and try to ensure that their players are faithful to a certain set of principles, not to mention the motivational issues that are also of great importance. There are teams that are so good that it becomes difficult to choose which favorite.
