Champions League Final Betting and Money Management

November 30, 2010 Football Soccer

Champions League Final betting represents the last time a Champions League betting fan will place a wager on the nearly year-long Champions League tournament.

Many enthusiasts implement a carefully-followed money management plan to guide their wagering throughout the tournament, but sometimes Champions League betting enthusiasts will disregard these money management strategies when wagering on the Champions League Final betting odds. Also, Champions League betting fans that have placed successful futures wagers will have the opportunity to hedge their wagers with the Champions League Final betting lines.

Champions League Final betting attracts more betting action than any other game throughout the tournament. The Final is guaranteed to involve two of the best soccer clubs in the world and the excitement of Champions League Final betting rarely disappoints. Because the Final is often viewed with such great importance, Champions League betting fans are frequently willing to forego their normal money management strategies for the final matchup. In general, gamblers often increase their normal wager size for Champions League Final betting, especially if the gamblers are loyal supporters of one of the two clubs involved. This type of Champions League Final betting is acceptable, because the Champions League final truly is a unique and memorable event. Nevertheless, Champions League betting fans should not disregard their money management strategies too severely. In other words, it is acceptable to increase one’s normal wager size for Champions League Final betting, but the increase should only be by a reasonable amount. Also, Champions League Final betting should not be seen as an opportunity to chase losses from earlier in the tournament.

One scenario in which it is acceptable to completely disregard one’s money management plan is when a bettor is hedging against a futures wager. For instance, Champions League Final betting in 2008 featured Manchester United and Chelsea. Anyone who had wagered on either one of these teams in the futures odds would have a chance of winning the wager and receiving a very nice payout, or losing the wager at the last moment and receiving nothing. Hedging is a method of guaranteeing that one will profit from Champions League Final betting, regardless of which team wins. If you had wagered on Chelsea in the futures odds, for example, then you would want to hedge in your Champions League Final betting by wagering on Manchester United to win the matchup. This way, even if Manchester United wins – as they did – then you will still receive winnings despite losing your futures wager. The size of a hedge will be dependent on your confidence in winning the futures wager, but a general rule is that it should always be large enough to cover the cost of the futures bet.
