Football

Football is the most popular sport for betting in the UK and has increased dramatically with the advancement in online gambling. The English Premier League is widely regarded as the best in the World and provides a huge variety of football betting opportunities.

Match betting remains the most popular type of wager among soccer fans. The match betting market offers simple prices on win, lose or draw. New opportunities in live betting or “in-running” means that you can invest during a game to hedge your bet or cut losses. There is also a strong market in outright betting on all of the major competitions. You can bet at any stage of the Premier League season on outright winner, relegation or managerial changes. Obviously the odds will change dramatically throughout the season. Likewise, the Champions League and domestic cup competitions attract plenty of interest with special bets available on all of the top matches.

At the start of the new Premiership season, Manchester City were 11-8 favourites to retain their title with Manchester United on 2-1 and Chelsea at 4-1. By mid-December, those odds had changed completely with United odds-on favourites ahead of City and Chelsea out to 16-1.… Read More

Football is the most popular sport for betting in the UK and has increased dramatically with the advancement in online gambling. The English Premier League is widely regarded as the best in the World and provides a huge variety of football betting opportunities.

Match betting remains the most popular type of wager among soccer fans. The match betting market offers simple prices on win, lose or draw. New opportunities in live betting or “in-running” means that you can invest during a game to hedge your bet or cut losses. There is also a strong market in outright betting on all of the major competitions. You can bet at any stage of the Premier League season on outright winner, relegation or managerial changes. Obviously the odds will change dramatically throughout the season. Likewise, the Champions League and domestic cup competitions attract plenty of interest with special bets available on all of the top matches.

At the start of the new Premiership season, Manchester City were 11-8 favourites to retain their title with Manchester United on 2-1 and Chelsea at 4-1. By mid-December, those odds had changed completely with United odds-on favourites ahead of City and Chelsea out to 16-1. Sam Allardyce (West Ham) and Steve Clarke (West Brom) were thought to be the most vulnerable coaches but it was Chelsea’s Roberto Di Matteo who was the first to be axed. Each managerial change brings about a new betting market and following the market closely can often reveal the identity of the new manager before it is officially announced. Many Tottenham fans did not believe that Andre Villas-Boas would be appointed their new manager after the sacking of Harry Redknapp but the bookmakers had him odds-on favourite long before his appointment at White Hart Lane.

Another popular wager is the correct score bet. Last season’s Premier League produced some incredible results and you would have needed a crystal ball to predict some of them. However, many punters study trends closely and can often find value. Predicting the first goal scorer has also become increasingly popular but does require close attention to detail with the squad rotation system now employed by many of the leading teams. The bookmakers will feel obliged to offer the shortest odds on the household names so you can sometimes get a good return if you find another member of the side in a rich vein of form. There is also a market on players to score at any time. The prices are obviously shorter than on the first goal scorer market but can provide more consistent returns.

Where matches appear very one-sided, there are still betting opportunities in the markets to win by two or more goals or in handicap betting. In these markets, the weaker of the two sides may be given a one or two goal start and this is an increasingly popular football betting market.

More speculative markets include first player booking, total goals and even total corners. You can also bet on the winner of the Golden Boot or on the transfer of leading players. If you trust your judgement on football betting, there are numerous ways to make a profit throughout the soccer season.
