When you start betting on soccer, it’s important to learn the different types of bets. Betting on soccer is not just a matter of who wins and who loses, but there is much more to it than that. You can bet on the total amount of goals, total corners, half/full time result or even first player to score a goal. Many tipsters have their favorite betting term to place a bet on. Read our articles about betting terms to find your favorite to place a bet on.
Some betting terms are more common than others. If a match dosen’t have many different wagers to play on, then only the most common will be available for you to bet on. That will be wagers like the full time result, half time/Full time result, asian handicap and maybe over/under 2.5 goals.
First Goals Scorer
If you can predict the first player to score a goal in a match, you can with confidence play on that. The odds are often relatively high on predicting the first goal scorer. Of course the top scorers and strikers give a lower odds than fx the defenders.
Predict the winning margin of the game, and you will get a good odds on your bet. The higher the winner margin is, the higher is the odds. If a team wins 3-1 then the winning margin is exactly 2.
Both teams to score
If both teams will score is a “yes” or “no” kind of bet, and the odds are also in the lower end since there are a 50/50 chance to get this one right. If a team is a favorite, the odds are a bit higher on “no”, since it’s more likely that they will not let in any goals.
It’s not many of the bets that can be combined, in the same match. You can not place a bet on the full time result, and on the same bet slip bet on the game to be under 2.5 goals. There are a few which can be combined, and that could fx. be the full time result, combined with the total amount of corners in the match.
