This is the latest market in the sports betting sector. It is as easy as determining the margin by which the winning team will win by. It is simple and yet difficult to bet on. It is simple in the sense that there is a specific team to win the game. Any of the two teams can win the game as long as by a certain margin that you have specified.
It is difficult to predict this bet in that the punters need to do a lot of research in order to determine the margin that these teams can produce between themselves.
Statistics shows that most teams do end up with a goal difference of 1 or 2. But there are exceptional cases whereby a big team like FC Real Madrid or FC Barcelona can thrash their opponents really bad to a point whereby a goal difference of something like 5 to 6 or even 7 goals. This is the time the punter has to be careful especially when indicating the winning margin.
As the margin grows, so do the odds too. The margins can be 0-1, 0-2,…. 0-5. The results of the match do not matter at all as long as the margin requirement is satisfied. Take for example if a punter bets on a winning margin of 0-3, and the results of the match end up in maybe 3-0, 0-3, 4-1, 5-2, it is considered as a win for the punter. The only time he/she loses that bet is when the results end up in a gap that is either less than or greater than 3 goals. That is the extent of complexity to which this market can get.
It is easier to lose money from this bet especially for those who have been doing some shoddy work in terms of getting the right stats.
