How to predict Super Lig matches
Now that we’ve taken a look at the key statistics, let's look at some of the other factors to include in your Super Lig predictions. First of all, it will be crucial to analyse the form of the best player on each team concerned in the match of your choice. For example, if you are betting on a game between Fenerbahce and Galatasarary, look at the team news. If top players are missing then this will have an affect on the match and the bet that you wish to make.
Look at the form of the teams that are playing. If one is in good form and getting wins, especially against good opposition, then it may well be worth placing a bet on them. If a side is struggling for points, then it may be better to avoid betting on them at present.
How important is the match that is being played? At the start of the season this isn't so important. As we reach the latter stages of the season it becomes more important. A club may be in mid-table and have little to play for. Some managers will decide to experiment with their line-ups if the game has little significance.
The final point that you should remember before making your Super Lig predictions is to always compare the bookmakers odds before placing your bets. As we are sure you are aware, the many bookmakers on the online betting market can offer different odds for the same bet on a Super Lig match. Whether you want to back Besiktas, Galatasary, Fenerbahce or Trabzonsor you will find variations in the odds values offered on each bet which can boost your earnings in the long term. To demonstrate, using the example of a Besiktas v Trabzonspor match, bet365 could offer odds of 12/5 on a draw, as opposed to 3/1 offered by William Hill. This may seem like only a small difference, but could add up to hundreds of pounds over the course of a season.
