Tip Correctly

Tipping looks easier than it is. Of course, much depends on having good luck, but over the course of a whole season, the winners will generally be the best players. Tipping is no game of chance!

Tipping behaviour of course depends on the tipping community’s individual rule settings, but a few guidelines should be considered.

Because a few tricks allow you to increase your success very quickly:

Tip 1: Tip on a home win more often

The home win is by far the most common result in football leagues. The home advantage is calculated statistically as follows: Between 43 and 49 per cent of all matches are generally home wins. Tipping on the home team is thus pretty solid thinking.

Tip 2: Draws often end 1-1

A draw will end 1-1 in almost 50 per cent of all cases. If you tip on a draw, you should thus generally tip on a 1-1 to increase your chance of getting the result exactly right.

Tip 3: Home win with one goal more

Home wins end with a one-goal difference in 40 per cent of al cases. A 2-0 tip is thus more risky than a 2-1. Even if a 2-0 is a pretty common result, you will receive bonus points for the correct goal difference in only 27 per cent of all cases. A goal difference of one, on the other hand, occurs in 45 per cent of matches.

Tip 4: Tip on the favourite more often

Many players tip too riskily. They always hope that the outsider will create a sensation. Of course, you can have a risky tip every now and then, but the risk should be well considered. If you tip on the favourite and lose, you may not receive any points, but most others won’t either. The point is to choose the right nuances.

Tip 5: Current Form

Often the standings are consulted in order to determine which team is the favourite and which the outsider. Sometimes, though, the standings for the last 6-8 games are better suited for this purpose. On Kicktipp, you can adjust the standings accordingly. A look at the home and away tables also makes sense, as valuable insights can be gleaned from them.
