The business of bookmakers is far from limited to strictly sports. Thus, most of them dedicate a space to what they call 'Special Bets', where the markets corresponding to the various reality shows are published (Big Brother, for example), artistic awards such as the Oscars, political elections, and many others. In the financial segment, it is also possible to predict the possible fluctuations that take place in the stock markets.
Premise number one, in this case, is similar to what happens when betting on a sport: you have to be informed, know the subject and carry out the appropriate analysis before making the final decision. When the time comes to gamble, the sympathies, fanaticisms, and the obvious should be left aside to make way for a thorough and exhaustive study of the situation.
Television is one of the main entertainments around the world and some specific programs have gained significant popularity in recent years until landing at bookmakers. Big Brother is one of the best examples. The famous format in which a certain group of people (who do not know each other) coexist locked in a house and are eliminated until ending with a winner has been all the rage in different latitudes of the planet, apart from the fact that it has not always been played by the same rules.
In both cases, the options for betting are usually similar: final and next winner eliminated. At the same time, it is usual that in Factor X you can also bet on the winning manager. A tip: although they are not infallible, the surveys that the specialized pages published on the Internet are a good parameter to have a clearer picture of the situation.
Undoubtedly, if it is about laurels and awards in the field of art, the emblematic Oscar Awards take all the flashes and all the eyes. The first installment of this famous award, whose protagonists are those who are part of the film industry, was held on May 16, 1929. Currently, the great ceremony organized by the Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences has a place during the first months of each year. And just as the Oscar is for the cinema, the Grammy is for music and the Emmy for television.
At the time of betting, the most attractive variants are the following: best film, best director, best actor and best actress. In any case, the list of markets available in this sense is extensive, encompassing the possibility of betting on supporting actors and actresses, the best foreign film, best soundtrack, documentaries (short and long), best editing, the best film of animation and even better makeup and hairstyle, among other categories.
Good advice is to review the antecedents corresponding to the category chosen to bet, try to find a common denominator, and have an objective view first of all, as to - in some way - put yourself in the place of the members of the aforementioned academy, Ultimate are the decision-makers.
Finally, it is worth mentioning a market-weighted by many betting experts: the financial one. It is about gambling in relation to the movements of the stock markets and the most important currencies for the world economy, as well as around gold, oil, stocks, and more. For example, fluctuations (ups and downs) that occur in London or on Wall Street. Or if the euro, the dollar or the pound sterling have an upward trend on a specific day.
Before getting into this subject, it is essential to optimize knowledge of economics and be aware of everything that happens in the financial world, changing, dynamic, and intense like few others.
