Online Betting Following COVID-19

As we head into a period of recovery, sporting events are going to become a primary form of entertainment for many as we fall back into routines of two or three months past, however there are going to be big changes for many in the short term that may begin to carry over to the longer term, and as betting finds a foothold once again, there are some important things to keep in mind whilst looking to place a bet online once more.

Predictions will be hard, keep a measured approach

Many bookies are going to be laying out odds based on previous performances and how the teams seemed before the lockdown, however we have seen upsets and big changes here because of the downtime – if you’re looking to place a bet, keep this in mind, as there may be some great underdog betting opportunities. It’s pretty much a guarantee that we’re going to see further upsets until teams, players, and athletes all settle back into their routine, make the most of this opportunity before it’s gone.

Keep an eye on regulation change

Some countries have seen a number of changes in regulation – within the UK specifically there has been a recent ban on credit card betting alongside a change to the gamstop initiative as it is now mandatory for all operators, there are options to get around this as this non gamstop bingo site list has some of the best places to bet, but it’s important to know which sites are available to you and which aren’t.

Pace is key

With so many events all getting started at the same time and many taking place on a more condensed schedule, it may be enticing to place as many bets as possible to make up for lost time, but as mentioned it may be hard to make predictions towards the start of the season as teams feel each other out and fall back into the swing of things – it may be prudent to just hold off until things stabilise and become a little more approachable. To add to this, many betting sites will be changing their odds very quickly as more data for performance becomes available, holding off a little may provide opportunities for a better payout, patience is key here.

If you’re looking to make the most out of your betting during this more volatile period of time too, now may be the time to look into different betting strategies – there are a number that are proven to work in some capacity and if you’re looking to win big this may be the best way to do so, there’s a huge number of strategies out that with some requiring a little more as you double down and others take a bit more of a safe approach, have a look through what options there are to a strategy that best suits the way you play and may best reward you for the sport that you intend to bet on.
