In the financial market, you hedge your position to prevent unwanted — or unbearable in most cases — losses when the market is moving against you. It is a form of risk management, and it can help traders make more profitable trades. In the world of sports betting, hedging is used to make sure you earn some profit no matter who win the event.

There are several occasions when you can back both parties and win some money no matter who wins the event. In horse racing, Dutch is quite common — it is actually using the same principles as hedging, placing several bets and guaranteeing profits if one of the horse you bet on wins the race. When you are betting on one-on-one sporting events such as football matches or snooker tournament, the requirements of making profitable hedges are more comprehensive.

Take the upcoming Chelsea vs. Sunderland match for instance. The current odds are 11/50 on Chelsea and 11/1 against Sunderland. If you pay closer attention, you can actually win some money no matter who wins the match. Assuming you wager £50, you can bet £45.39 on Chelsea and £4.61 against Sunderland. No matter who wins the match, you will secure a winning of £5.37 — the total winning for each team is £55.37. The only time you can lose your bet is when the match ends with a draw; you stand better chances of securing a profit with hedging.

Sports Betting: Combining Bets http://www.gosportsbetting.net/general/sports-betting-combining-bets/ http://www.gosportsbetting.net/general/sports-betting-combining-bets/#comments Sat, 20 Mar 2010 09:47:53 +0000 admin http://www.gosportsbetting.net/?p=14 Other than the regular fixed odds bets, there are also spread bets you can place on a sporting event. The most common example is spread betting opportunity you find on football matches. The betting opportunity can be anything from the number of goals, the number of corner kicks, cards, even how fast the first goal is scored. Using the right strategy, you can actually combine the available bets to increase profitability of your sports betting activities.

The first thing you need to remember is added risks. You need to make sure the added risks are within your betting bankroll or budget. Always bet with the amount of money you can afford to lose, and make sure you know exactly the kind of risks you are facing. With spread betting, the return can be very rewarding but the risks are also pretty high.

Focus on your primary bet first. If you are spread betting on a regular basis, then fixed odds bets are actually your secondary bets and vice versa. Place your primary bets first, and understand the risks you are exposed to. Use that potential loss to calculate the amount of secondary bet you can place to reduce the risks while staying profitable.

Finding the right mixture of the two bets can be tricky at first, but you will be able to use the two betting opportunities to your benefits. If you understand the competing parties thoroughly, you can make a lot of fortune placing sports bets on a regular basis.
