Football Betting – From the Beginning

Football betting has seen a remarkable growth in the past 10 years and for somebody who has never placed a bet before, it can be a very daunting task. This blog will give you some guidance on how to bet, where to bet and most importantly, what to bet on. It is no secret that betting on football has the ability to be very rewarding, but it certainly doesn’t come without some frustrations and risks along the way.

The simplest, and most common market to place a bet on is what you think will happen in 90 minutes. So there are 3 options, a home win, an away win, or a draw. The most popular way to bet on this is through an accumulator, in which all the results you chose have to happen for your bet to be a winning one. For example, on a Saturday afternoon you place an accumulator on Arsenal, Everton, Newcastle United, Reading and QPR to all win. If all of the teams win, your bet is a winning one and you can start counting your winnings. However, if Everton lose, then your whole bet loses and you will win nothing. This example shows the risks of an accumulator, but they can produce very high rewards from a minimal stake.

Another popular market is to bet on the first scorer in any given match. Here you would place a bet on which player you think will score the first goal in the game. The odds on each player will be determined by the player’s tendency to score. For example, Didier Drogba would probably be favourite to score the first goal in a lot of Chelsea’s home matches; where as John Terry would be much bigger odds because he is a defender and less likely to score. Drogba may be around 3/1 to score the first goal, so for your £1 original stake; you would win £3 as well as getting your £1 back. Whereas Terry may be as big as 20/1, so for your £1 stake you would win £20, plus your £1 stake back. Obviously the bigger the odds, the less likely a player will score first, in the bookies eyes anyway!

Betting on the correct score of the match is another popular way to bet. The clue of how this works is in the title. Here, you are placing a bet on what you think the final score will be. As with the first goal scorer bets, the more likely the bookies think the result will happen, the shorter the odds will be.

These are 3 of the most basic ways to place a bet on football and trust me, there are many more to come! In the coming days I will look at some of the other methods and explain the best ways to get the biggest rewards from minimal risk. Keep checking back on this blog for all the best betting hints, tips and explanations off all the markets available. You will be amazed just what you can bet on these days!
