With so many different types of bets available, a punter may get confused. If you want to bet on a football match, you should learn about the kinds of bets available. Here are the most common types of football bets.
1 X 2 betting or full time result
It is the most common type of betting in football. The bettor has to choose which team is going to ultimately win the 90-minute game. Usually, ‘1’ means the home team and ‘2’ means away team. So, if you choose 1, that means that the home team will win. If your guess is right, you will win the bet.
Goals or under/over
You have to bet whether the total number of goals is more or less than a quoted number. This is a common type of bet as it is easy to predict. You can easily predict whether a game will be a high scoring game or a low scoring one by looking at the teams that are playing. For example, the quoted score for Arsenal vs. Chelsea is 3.5 goals. So, if you say that the score will be ‘over’ this quoted number, then you will win the bet if the number of goals is 4 or more. Otherwise, you will lose the bet.
In this type of bet, you will have to guess the correct score of either the home team or the away team. The odds are high in this bet as you will have many options for the score; it can be from 0 goals to 8 or 10 goals even.
Though some of these bets may be very easy to predict, you should do research and study the market before placing your bet. You should have knowledge about both the teams’ performances so that you can make a wise guess and not only some random ones.
