What’s the smartest thing to do when it comes to making winner and top goal scorer picks? Some sports bettors would say the smartest thing to do would be to never wager on this prop. Acknowledging the high risk in this type of venture is a good thing to do. We suggest that you risk very little on this prop. Use it as a diversion more than anything else.
We’re going to suggest make three bets of various unit sizes. Also, we suggest risking no more than a total of five units. Our suggestion is to wager on teams that are most likely to make it to the final that are coupled with a player who’s also one of the favorites to win the Golden Ball Award and/or the Golden Foot Award.
