Everyone involved in the world of sport, and particularly football - whether grassroots or in a more professional capacity - will be well aware of the big business that is now sports betting.

The UK online gambling industry as a whole continues to hit new heights almost on a year by year basis and with the wide variety of betting offers and options available, and the multiple accumulator offerings not only in football itself but across many of the more popular world wide sports, it is very much a case of there is something for everyone to have a bit of fun with both during a sporting season, and also during the quieter off season period.

For those who do want to engage in a bit of extra fun and lay on a flutter or two as the 2022/23 Premier League season approaches, it is vital to have a betting strategy in place - particularly for those who wish to bet on multiple matches and in more than one category.

Having a clear strategy and plan in place will also help you to keep track of your bets, which in turn will make the experience safer overall as you will always have a record of where you have placed your money, as well as how much, so you can more appropriately budget and ensure you are sticking to your set limits and not accidentally overspending when engaging with the options available to you.

Keeping a record as above also helps to serve as a simple reminder to let you know when, and where, you need to tune in to see how a match plays out.

It is also worth looking at the options available in terms of bookmakers, as there are many introductory offers available to fresh members who open an account on new betting sites and these can often take the form of free money to use as you get used to their system, or other similar bonus packages - so it is always worth comparing and contrasting what is available to you before you dive in.

You can also always use popular search engines to research the numerous betting strategies that are out there, as many of them are designed with individual betting habits in mind, along with how much you wish to spend in an average week. Each strategy has there own strengths and weaknesses, so you need to pick one that works for your circumstances and they enjoyment you want to get out of having a flutter.

Knowledge also plays a key role in any likely betting successes. Whilst plenty of fun can be had with the odd gamble that relies on the stars aligning to pay out a more lucrative sum, educated guesses that are more guaranteed (even for a smaller win) are the more sensible option, particularly for those just dipping their toe in.

Knowing the clubs, knowing the players and being very aware of their competitions strength becomes crucial when making larger bets. With no offence intended, for example, despite big things being expected from Steven Gerrards first full season at Aston Villa - you would not lay £100 down on them to win the Premier League in 2022/23, but you might gamble a fiver purely to have a topic of discussion when sharing a drink with your friends in the local pub.

Educated guesses are the way to go, but even sure things on paper can often backfire as nobody can see the future, so again it is important you never bet beyond your means, you do not bet a sum you cannot afford to lose and just as a well known ad campaign states - when the fun stops...stop.
