How Does Underdog Betting System Work in Football and Tennis

Last updated on 12 月 27th, 2021

Many beginners in sports betting only place their wagers on teams who typically win the game in their past matches. Newbies usually pick the teams or players that are expected to win in the game. Experienced punters on the other hand, understand that this usually is a losing idea.


In this article, let’s talk about underdogs in sports betting and why professionals like betting on losing teams. Let’s take a closer look at football and tennis events and how to work around underdogs correctly using the VOdds trading platform!

Strategy on Odds for the Underdog


In football, the underdog is the team that has a little bit of a losing streak in their past matches. There are certain rules for outsider betting strategy:


  • The favorite will not always be in shape 


Outsider betting is a tactical approach to analyzing the strengths of two competing teams. Suppose we analyze the recent German Cup match between Borussia M and Bayern Munich. 


The guests were the clear favorites for a variety of factors. But in the end they lost 0 – 5. Firstly, the German Cup is not a priority tournament for the Bavarians. Secondly, the banal underestimation of the opponent affected the result. There are extreme situations when, for example, FC Sheriff was able to take the victory at home from Real Madrid. Therefore, in this match, many were able to catch a good bet on the underdog winning the game.


  • Change of head coach 


Many football giants can change their head coach very quickly. But the newbie punters will often avoid betting on the team that changed leadership. You have to take note that there are times when, after the arrival of a new coach, the team gives a streak of victories, giving you a higher chance of winning if you bet on this kind of underdogs.


  • Goal betting 


Very often, outsiders do not win against favorites, but teams always have a chance to score a goal in a duel. Therefore, many bookmakers offer bets on the outsider’s number of goals. You can also use this betting market when you use VOdds platform.


In tennis, it’s much more interesting to watch underdogs rather than just betting on the favorite, especially if it’s a singles match. Even if tennis is unpredictable at times, here are some tactics to study when betting on tennis:


  • The latest results of tennis players 


Often, more world class and titled athletes before an important tournament do not have positive results in the last championships. Experienced bettors often raise large sums of money on this.


  • The ATP and WTA rankings do not always reflect the strength of the players


Betting on an underdog in tennis can be a great decision if there are two equally strong opponents, but different in rankings on their last matches. Often, beginners will bet on the athlete with the higher ranking but this is a common mistake among beginners. Players usually have a higher drive to win the game if they have not won against the other for a long time.
