Here are some advices of what you need to know:
Teams – Make sure you get to grips with knowing the teams you’re betting on. Analyze the key players for each side, pick out the danger-men, spot both sides strong points and weaknesses. This is a list of just some of the information you will need to take into account when choosing which side has the best chance of winning.
– Starting Line up & formation
– Missing Players (Injuries & Suspensions)
– League position
– Their recent fixture list (League & Domestic Cups)
– Their form heading into the match
Form – Confidence is huge in football and you get this from winning games. If a team is winning games regularly then their confidence, not only as individuals but also as a team, will grow. Teams on a hot winning streak are hard to oppose.
However, if a team is on a poor run of results and are struggling to put any wins together then the confidence and morale of the whole team will be at a low. This will in turn have a negative affect on their performance and teams with poor form should be avoided.
Conditions – Weather plays a big part in how a game pans out. Different weather conditions will benefit certain sides more than others, especially those who are not used to a change of scenery. Rain and heat are the main conditions that affect the games.
Rain adds a completely different aspect to any game. The ball won’t bounce much on the surface and the overall tempo of the game will become slower. Teams that are accustomed to rainy conditions will benefit from this.

With the exception of the Win-Draw-Win market, the goals markets are where the most of the punters money goes. To be successful in this area you will need to familiarize yourself with several aspects.
Style of play – The way a team tends to play is very important when betting on goals. If a team is known for it’s defensive prowess then it’s likely that they won’t concede many goals. In this case it’s advice you stay away from Predicting lots of goals. If a team consists of several quality forwards or some creative midfielder’s then the chances of them scoring a few goals should be high.
