With billions of dollars in illegal soccer bets exchanged every year and allegations of match-fixing rife, the punters are often at the losing end whereas the bookmakers are having the last laugh.

The mafias and underground syndicates are often behind the fixing of soccer matches. Here’s how you can find out if a match is fixed.

  1. If the goal came very early during the first ten minutes of kick off, then it is possible that the match is fixed. They will score at the most unimaginable timing like within 30 seconds or 3 mins are common signs.

  2. Pay attention to the speed of both team players. The team that will lose will tend to run at slower pace than the opposition. Less reluctance and no determination to win.

  3. Another point to note is the team that is fixed to win they will be proactive and fight with all their might to get to the ball. Whereas, the one that is fixed to lose {note this also refers to team that gives ball but unable to clear the Asian Handicap} will miss even inches in front of the goal post. Sometimes the team that is fixed to lose will even score for the next team that is the own goal or they will appear disorganized at the defense showing no effort in stopping the attack.

  4. Not all footballers are great actors so pay close attention to their body language, they will display great agonies while missing clear cut shots but their eyes are secretly laughing away some even had difficulty in controlling their facial expression ,occasionally they subconsciously look into the camera before diverting their eyes swiftly away.

  5. The coach decision to remove key players from the team substituting with a less superior player. Consider this why would a coach remove that particular key striker that has just scored the crucial goal and try to defend the 1 goal lead well within the early 50 or 60 mins. However, it may be justified if the player is suffering from an injury.

  6. Biased and unfair referring decision. Legitimate goals are claimed as off-side, or a clear penalty given as no foul are common signs of fixed matches. Giving unnecessary penalty to a team that when there is no professional foul.

                               Recommendations

  1. Avoid betting heavy stakes during live betting. Try to observe 1st half before you bet, it is advisable to bet during the 2nd half as that is the time when the bookies tricks reveal itself.

  2. Do not trust what you see in the 1st half as what is obvious is often a trap. For example, a team can have many attacking opportunities in 1st half through free kicks, corners etc. But during 2nd half they can easily concede a goal and lost the match!

  3. The odds posted are often set in a way to trap the novice punters , so try to put yourself into the shoes of a bookmaker and you will see a much clearer picture.
