Subtype 1: independent determination of odds
Such a player is always driven by the desire to outplay the bookie through a more thorough and meticulous preliminary work. Using various sources of information and going through many different methods, he tries to calculate the most accurate probabilities of the outcome of the event, beating the bookie here.
Most often at a preliminary stage such bettors do not even look at the quotes offered by the bookmaker, and only after calculating the odds themselves, compare them with the bookmaker's. In the case when the probabilities determined by the players are higher than the bookmakers Parimatch official website, they place bets, which by definition should be the most profitable.
Players belonging to this subtype have such valuable qualities for any person as great experience, determination, deliberate decision-making and patience. Most often, such bettors limit themselves to one, maximum two main markets, on which they place their bets.
It often happens that players of this type unite into entire tipster communities, operating with joint efforts and knowledge to increase the chances of winning in each individual event and, accordingly, the total profit. In doing so, they evolve with the development of the betting industry itself.
Subtype 2: A good idea with a bad implementation.
Most often such bettors do not even think they belong to this type. For their failures they blame everything - the collusion of teams, the "incompetence" of coaches who did not guess the lineup, a bump in the field that prevented them from scoring the much-needed goal, finally, the banal bad luck - but not themselves. On the other hand, if the outcome is good, they tend to look for a pattern in their bets, refusing to believe it when they are told that they have "caught the bird of fortune by the tail".
Such bettors have an understanding of analytics, take into account statistical data and can even correctly determine the probabilities of outcomes implicit in bookmaker quotes, but they use too little information (or treat the data superficially) and test their strategies and results too little.
Overall, this is a rather amateurish approach, and such players have little chance of becoming professionals, as they bet only on the basis of basic analysis. At the same time, bookmakers, determining the quotes on sporting events, invest heavily in staff and advanced technology. In addition, the odds are also based on the results of analysis of the bets of really professional players.
Thus, if you truly aim to outplay the bookies and the market, this approach should be eliminated, and spend much more energy and time on analytics and developing your own profitable strategies.
