Betting on football can take various different formats, some have high risks and potentially allow you to win lots, some are less risky but with these you’re less likely to win as much. Researching the market to make sure you know what you are betting on and that you understand the betting terms is important as it will help you understand your chances of winning.
Here are some of the different types of bet that are available to you:
A win bet is the simplest form of betting, you bet on something definitive and positive to happen. For example Team A to win the game. This can apply to championships as well as matches of course.
Each Way Bets
An each way bet is where you make two predictions. One for someone to win, and one for them to nearly win. This is more applicable to things like horse racing where there are more than two potential winners so you might place an each way bet for horse A to win or to place.
A lay bet is where you bet on something to lose. So if you lay a team, you are betting that they won’t win.
An accumulator bet is where you make a series of bets and if each one goes the way you want it to, your stake plus the winnings from each element of the bet are put forward onto the next bet. This is how some people manage to turn a very small stake into a large winning.
What to think about before you make a bet
Looking at the form of your team is very important which ever type of bet you are looking at placing, as is looking at what has happened to their players. If they have been having a winning streak it might look good at first glance, but if they’re star player got injured in their last match ฟุตบอลโลก2022 and is out for the rest of the season then the bet for them to win might not be as good as it looks at first glance.
It’s also important to think about how much you can afford to lose as well. Being confident that you’ve made all the right choices is great, but there’s still a chance that you might get it wrong and so it is important to make sure that you aren’t risking more than you can afford to when you decide on your stake (A stake is the amount that you risk losing when you place the bet).
Odds can vary depending on the type of bet you are placing and on the previous form of the team or player you are betting on. A team that is doing well is going to elicit odds that aren’t as good as a team that’s say lost all it’s matches so far this season. It will also partly depend on the team they are playing against, and the status of all their players as well, the reason for this is that they are more likely to have to pay you if you bet on a team that’s likely to win so the odds will be closer to the evens or 2/1 end of the scale, where as a team that’s not been doing well and has it’s star player out of action and is playing against a team that’s top of the league is much less likely to win therefore you may get better odds if you bet on them to win.
