Triathlon does not belong to popular sports. On the one hand, this fact is a plus for customers of bookmakers, since the coefficients for many positions are very profitable. But on the other hand, not every bookmaker includes in its triathlon line.
Triathlon Betting Guide
Triathlon consists of 3 disciplines:
The main feature of this sport is that there are no pauses between competitions in separate disciplines. They last continuously. This factor significantly affects the results of athletes at different stages. The main goal, which is pursued by the participants, is to distribute forces competently to all three stages in order to qualify for high positions in the overall standings.
Betting Peculiarities in Triathlon
The main options for triathlon bets are those on the winner of the overall standings or the stage. There are bets on the winners or the athlete, who are in the top 10. A very interesting bet is the comparison of two athletes (who is higher in rating). It is accepted for general classification, as well as for individual disciplines.
There are bets on the total more or less than the specified time to overcome the distances. Bets are accepted for participants with points in seconds.
Analysis of Betting Options
When analyzing betting options, you need to know the current form of athletes well. Statistics of previous competitions can give information about the overall alignment of forces in the triathlon. But using only the one will be wrong. Be sure to analyze the performances of athletes in certain disciplines. This information will help to avoid annoying mistakes in choosing certain sportsmen for betting.
It is also very important to understand the priorities of different athletes. It is clear that the goal of performances for the best athletes is the one - to win the World Cup and the Olympics. But this does not mean that the same goal is relevant for other competitions.
The most productive period for triathlon bets, in addition to the World Championships and the Olympics, is March-October. During this time, 8 stages of the World League are held. Winners and prize winners receive good monetary rewards, and bookmakers include triathlon in their lists.
