There are many, big football events during the course of any year and 2015 is no different. With big football events, comes the opportunity to bet and it seems, the bigger the match or tournament, the more excitement there is around the betting markets. However, it’s important not to get carried away when betting on a big football event and waste your money. Take the advice of leading sports handicapper, Jon Price and step back and analyze the match first.

There have already been a number of important football matches in 2015, such as the Champions League final, which was played in June. Arguably the biggest club football match in the world, the Champions League final is a massive occasion, especially when the teams contesting it are Barcelona and Juventus. With so many advertising campaigns out there, it’s very easy to get carried away, bet a big wager and lose your money in the heat of the moment.


Jon Price makes a good point, when he talks about the markets surrounding a big football match and why they should be avoided. Many of these markets are no more than gimmicks, yet have almost become as big as the game itself. Also, betting big money on teams that are considered massive underdogs for the match, is not advised. Take the 2015 Champions League final again, although Juventus are considered a big European team, with a great history, they were still clear underdogs for the Champions League final, against Barcelona. Placing a big wager on Juventus to win, is just too risky and would have led to a big loss.

2015 will see the resumption of the big European football leagues, such as La Liga in Spain, featuring Real Madrid and Barcelona. When either of these teams are playing any team, other than Atletico Madrid, they are huge favourites and an upset very rarely occurs. This is another example, of when you should be keeping your big football wager back for another time.

The perfect football wager occurs, when it’s possible to win big on a good, single bet. With the Premier League, Champions League, Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga all in action during 2015, it’s very easy to get carried away with betting. The advice from Jon Price, is to make use of the wealth of information and statistics available, in order to make informed decisions, before placing that big football wager.

There are many trends that correlate to the outcome of big games, such as the FA Cup final, El Clasico or the Champions League final, which punters can can find and exploit to make good profits. Big football wagers should not be a risk but a calculated decision.
