Types of soccer bets
Types of betting on football matches are the most famous in bookmaker companies, compared to other sports. There are bets for the final outcome of the game, result for the first and second half, bets on goals and no goals, correct scores, Asian handicaps and others.
Let’s look at some of the most used options on football betting:
1×2 – Bet on a football match for the final result in the regular 90 minutes. The participant must predict the final outcome of the meeting with three options: Win for the home team, draw or win for the away team.
Bet on a double chance at a sports match. The participant here predicts the final result in 2 chance option, losing only by a third one. The types of double chance bets are: 1x, x2 and 12.
1x – home win or draw
x2 – draw or away win
12 – home or away win
First Half – For this type of bet, you need to predict the result for the first half only. The final result does not apply in this case, but only the result for the first half.
Second Half – Like the previous option, the bet is the result of the second half and you must predict the result only for the second half, no matter the final outcome of the football match.
Correct score – With this bet, the player selects the correct result for the entire match, which can be in a large range starting from 0: 0. Options for the correct result are many, as a rule, the larger correct scores, the greater odds will be given.
Under and Over Goals – an interesting position to play with predictions for over 0.5, over 1.5, over 2.5, over 3.5, and also below 0.5, under 1.5, under 2.5, under 3.5, and many more possible options. Here you have two options for a match under or over, with the chance 1/2.
The Asian Handicap games are gaining more and more popularity. The variations are many, but the most used are:
Asian handicap with a (+)sign – here, the advantage is for a team, with handicaps difference (+0.25, +0.5, +0.75, +1 and so on)
By sign (-) here the opponent has some advantage, not for the team you bet. Let’s say you have bet on Juventus against Torino. For Juventus handicap (-1) and, if Juventus win with 2:0, you win, if win with 1:0, stake will be refunded, if Juventus make draw, you lose.
Gol-Gol and no goal. Here is a forecast for both teams to score a goal in the match (goal – goal), or either both teams not to score (no goals). The win percentage is 50 to 50, and these are the two result options. The average odds are about 1.80, but it still depends on the the certain game.
Scorer – here bettors make a bet for the top scorer in the match. The attackers have the advantage with more chance to score and lower odds on bookmaker list. You can choose a bet for first goal scorer, last goal scorer and goal scorer at any time. Here’s an example:
In the match Valencia – Atletico Madrid, the lowest odds are offered for Antoine Griezmann (5.00), Diego Kosta (6.00), Kevin Gamayro (6.00) and Moreno Rodrigo (6.50).
