Cricket is a very popular sport with die-hard fans across the world, even in places where the cricket game is not so widespread. Lately it has also ascended to the top list of bettors’ preferences when it comes to sports wagering and this has elevated the interest and attention of bookmakers featuring cricket betting in Germany and all over the world, who focus on offering many and interesting betting markets and betting options to their customers.
Undoubtedly betting on cricket requires punters to have at least some basic or fundamental understanding of the sport. Afterall it is quite difficult to bet on a sport for which they have minimal comprehension or for which they can hardly cast their knowledge. There is a lot going on in cricket and this is most likely the brilliance of the sport in the eyes of fans and in the minds of sports bettors.
Assuming that having certain knowledge over cricket and being able to comprehend how it is played are critical in cricket betting, we can easily understand that punters also need to be continuously informed and stay up-to-date with teams’ performances, statistics, players’ records and of course any relevant news.
Sports bettors who want to make some profits from wagering on cricket, however, need more than the basics – not to say that they need more than having an edge.
They need to have control over their game and to be able to cap on their strengths, minimize their weaknesses and come up with a strategy that brings them closer to profits.
The good news is that this is not a difficult thing to do. The bad news is that while there is a guaranteed approach that can make all bettors improve and advance their betting game, most punters either neglect it or disregard it, because it is time consuming.
Keeping records and maintaining a fully-informed and detailed database of all bets is the absolute means to improve your game, mitigate risks, reduce weak points and build a winning strategy.
Yes, maybe this sounds trivial to you, but keeping track of your bets, losses and profits is the only way to gain control of your game. Simple as that.
Well, keeping records gives you a number of benefits:
* You obtain a better and more holistic perspective on where you tend to lose and where you tend to win
This is very important as you can identify your strong or weak points in cricket betting. Let’s say that you realize that betting on a certain tournament often leads to losses -maybe because you can’t really take into account all predictive factors etc. This can help you a lot, either by trying to find out what goes wrong or simply by avoiding betting on the specific tournament in the future.
* You are able to have a real-time overview of where you stand from a profitability perspective
What is more helpful for your betting strategy than being able to see where you are at any point in time. How is your overall betting game going? How good are you at the end of the day? How much profit (or loss) have you managed to generate from cricket betting in the long run? It is literally invaluable to be able to see where you stand in real time.
* You are able to analyze statistically all the data and records that you maintain, and find possible relations between variables.
The huge advantage of keeping records of your bets is that it enables you to run statistical analysis of all data and in this way find possible patterns, possible cause-and-effect relations or generally see what kind of factors/circumstances lead you to profits (or losses).
The more detailed record of everything that surrounds your bet, the more the likelihood to find such relationships. And the more you find such relationships, the better you can plan your strategy and adjust your betting game.
Imagine that you may find the weather or the type of pitch influencing your profits or losses on certain bets. This will be extremely helpful and a good way to start adjusting your decisions.
While this is the absolute means for advancing your betting game in cricket, many of you might still wonder whether you have the time to do so. But you can be sure that once you start doing it, you will become more and more efficient in keeping records and it will come off as a routine. A routine that will take your betting to a whole new level.
