The industry of soccer betting in Singapore has significantly grown over the years as more fans continue to start their sports betting journey. The opportunity to earn money while adding excitement to the game makes traditional sports betting an ideal hobby for many people. In addition, the development of online gaming platforms allowed many sports fans to conveniently create betting accounts and access a sportsbook to place their wagers.

And although there are tons of beginner-friendly betting options that require minimal preparation available in the market, doing adequate research can be a long way. This will help the punters have a complete understanding of the technicalities of each betting market, allowing them to formulate a strategy that can help maximize their bets. Also, it will enable them to know various factors that happen during a game, such as upsets.

There is no wonder that solid and skillful teams are heavily favored to win a match or tournament. But now and then, some mediocre or lowly teams manage to do the impossible and score an upset, which usually happens for different explanations. This typically leads the players and fans of the favored team to experience prolonged disappointment and makes supporters of the underdogs jump in joy.

For example, Leicester City’s Premier League title in 2016 came as a surprise for many, especially since the team is not among the top favorites to win the tournament. Led by Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, the Foxes could get on top and be 10 points clear of second-place Tottenham Hotspur. The miracle led to UK bookmakers needing to pay out at least £20 million to the lucky bettors.

Leicester’s remarkable 2016 run is just one of the countless big upsets in sports history. Some other notable upsets include the Cleveland Cavaliers coming back from being down 1-3 against the Golden State Warriors, Greece surprising everyone during Euro 2004, and New York Jets beating the then Baltimore Colts in 1969.
