Football Betting mainly concerns football leagues. Since they have a bigger piece of the pie during the season, it is only reasonable for bettors to bet on certain countries, to a greater extent. This choice makes sense since bettors who keep a close eye on certain leagues, develop a better understanding and an ability to safely predict an outcome, thus betting with low risk. No one can guarantee profits but the odds of winning are certainly high.
How things are different when national teams are involved? As you already know, unless there are major sporting events (World Cup, Euro, Copa America) requiring the national teams’ continued presence, their participation in qualifying or friendly tournaments throughout the season is rare. Qualifying or friendly matches take place once or twice every few months, which makes it harder for the bettor to follow the teams’ progress. The national teams rosters vary, whereas their appearances lack continuity. For example, just because a national team made two consecutive wins in January does not mean that it will have the same performance three months later. Certain elements that could affect the theory of betting, such as the roster, the players’ shape or the best players might change.
Clearly, the bettors receive less information on national teams. This means that they have to be more careful with their choices and bet irrespective of the standards they are accustomed to when betting on the leagues. So, ultimately, when it comes to betting on national teams, the analysis is harder and the risk is higher.
