On 07/08/2014, HIFK played against Kotkan as part of the 18th round of Finland Ykkonen. After the first half, the score was 2-1. The result matched one of my betting strategies. I placed a big bet and achieved a significant profit.
I waited until the 60th minute of the game. It was still 2-1. And I placed $500 on Over 3.75. The odd was 0.55. With this bet, I only needed 1 goal to get a small profit and another goal to have a bigger profit.
Finnish teams score many goals. On average, they score about 3.07 goals. So it is very safe to bet on Over.
I always try to avoid betting on the first and the last 3 rounds. However this was 18th round, it was safe for me to bet.
More importantly, the previous match where 1st half was 2-1 did not have any goal in 2nd half. It was a big green light for me to bet.
The final score was 4-1 with 2 more goals at 70th and 78th minute. I received a profit of $275 in one match. One lesson from this match is the odd was very low (only 0.55). This is also a good sign to bet on Over.
