Different Ways to Bet on Football


Football pitch

Just like football is the most loved sport around the globe, it is also the one that punters bet on the maximum. With several football leagues and tournaments in play throughout the year, there are opportunities aplenty for a fan to continue making money from this exciting game whenever they want. However, did you know that there are several ways in which you can bet on football, besides the conventional one of picking odds released by the bookmaker? It is crucial, however, before we get into discussing these fun methods to earn money from football, that you make a plan for it and don't just go into it blindly. The best way to start is to set aside a fixed budget first, then choose a leading bookie, followed by picking a popular competition. Over time, you will realise that spreading your bets on different games and tournaments is a good thing. When starting, though, it is best to stick with something like the Premier League on which you can find busloads of information on matches beforehand. This then allows you to make informed profitable bets and carry on with your betting journey for long.

With Friends

The simplest of ways to make a few bucks from football is to have bets with your friends or family. You can be at the pub having a pint and place a wager amongst each other on who will score the next goal. However, as is the case with friends, sometimes they don't take it seriously, especially if they lose. Or else, there is no monetary amount involved, and all you might win is the next round of drinks. Nevertheless, it is an enjoyable way of adding a hint of excitement into the game you are watching.

On A Virtual Match

For a more substantial win, try virtual competitions that are the most popular trend in the sports betting world right now. Virtual sports are primarily game simulations where you can place bets similar to the ones punters make on real matches. In fact, the games are scheduled and the odds released by the bookmakers well in advance. As a bettor, you can then watch a computer-generated game in play and count up your winning bets from the comfort of your living room.

On Gossip and News

If you aren't too much of a sports-head and find researching teams and players a little tedious, think about betting on their personal lives instead. As odd as it may sound, bookmakers have options where you can place wagers on transfers in the teams and also which famous football couple might get married next. Several novelty bets come out during the off-season also. From which footballer will get into trouble to what will they name their new-born child, there are several entertaining possibilities to explore.

Through Slots

How about something quick, packed with eye-popping graphics, and easy to play? Football-themed slots are prevalent across online casinos and allow fans to indulge in a bit of spinning excitement at odd times. You can play a slot during half-time, in the morning from your bed, or on your mobile phone while in a stadium watching a live match. It's a little unconventional, but requires no prior information and is surprisingly very lucrative, resulting in you possibly winning enough for season tickets of your favourite club.
