How to hedge a football bet?
To hedge a football bet, you need to place one bet before the match begins and one during in-play betting to ensure that you have covered all the bases. The advantage is that you are going to have more money at the end of the match than you began with no matter what happens in the match.
For example: Manchester United is playing Chelsea. You place a bet on United to win before the match has started. During the match, you see that while United is leading, Chelsea seems to be building up some momentum and could stage a comeback. You now take advantage of better odds on Chelsea and place a smaller bet on it.
If Manchester United wins, you lose a small bet on Chelsea but still win your original bet. If Chelsea does manage to stage a combeack then you lose your original but the small stake on Chelsea at high odds will help your recover your money.
How to hedge a football bet? You need to be nible and recognize opportunities as they come up during the match. It may take some practice before you get the hang of it.
