Online Football Betting Tips


Online football betting is one of the booming business today. Every day punters are looking for the best tips to increase their chances of beating bookmakers. Online bookmakers provide punters with the opportunity to bet on different football leagues such as Premier League, Championship league, League Cup, Bundesliga, and Europa League. Due to this fact, there are dozens of bookmakers offering lucrative bonuses and promotional offers to attract new bettors. Our goal is to provide you with not only the best betting tips but also some advice on some of the most reputable bookmakers to use. Our in-depth reviews will give you a breakdown of what you should expect from every bookie. Therefore, here are our top ten football betting tips:

Winner Bet

The winner bet is the most straightforward betting market. The player bets on whether one team will win or the final match result will be a draw. In as much as this betting market is available at every bookmaker, it should be noted that it sometimes comes with very low odds. The best way to profit using this bet is when the match is very competitive, for example, Chelsea vs Manchester City. However, if one team appears to be stronger, the odd will turn out very unappealing.

Handicap Bet

The handicap bet has close similarities with the Winner bet only that bet on a team to beat the set handicap. Let's take an example of Manchester United are 3/10 to play against Liver Pool. It's clear that the set price will offer a little payout. With the handicap market, you have the chance to bet on the Red Devils and make good scores. In a match like this, Manchester United -2 to win the game is offered at the odds of 21/10. Thus, -2 means Liverpool will start the game with an ideal 2-0 lead scores. Man-U must score three goals to clear the deficit and lead in the match, hence giving you a win.

Half-Time/Full-Time Bet

Other than the two correlated markets mentioned above, the half-time/full-time is another market with handsome payouts. You are supposed to bet on the team you think will lead in the first half and full-time. For example, France is playing Russian, and you feel that they will be drawing at half-time, but France will be ahead at full-time. Your choice will be Draw/France for that matter.

Win Margin Bet

The winning margin market is similar to the winner bet, but it offers bigger payouts. The objective is to bet on how many goals a team will lead within a match. For instance, Arsenal to lead by 3, Chelsea to lead by 2, Manchester City to lead by 1 and many others. Betting on the exact outcome has more appealing odds than backing a single team.

Total Goals Bet

The final score of the match has no impact in this betting market. You are just betting on the overall goals at the end of the game. For example, if you are expecting more than two goals, you can bet Over 2.5 Total Goals.

Both Teams to Score Bet

Similar to the Total Goals bet this bet is not affected by the final score of the match. In both teams to score market, you bet on the possibility that at least both sides will score at the end of the game. Of course, the odds will be higher on the team that will appear to defeat the other.

Match Result Bet plus Both Teams To Score Bet

This is a combination of Winner bet and Both Teams to Score bets. The bet is simple to understand it offers punters with the opportunity to bet on higher odds than the Winner bet. The goal is to bet on the outcome of the game and whether both the playing teams will score.

Match Result Bet plus Over/Under Total Goals Bet

This is the case where you are betting on both teams to score. In simple words, you bet on which team will win and with how many goals. The only downside is that the odds will be affected by the possibility goals in the game.

First Goal Bet

First Goal bet is one of the most popular betting markets in football. It offers opportunities for winning huge prizes. The objective of this bet is to predict the team that will score the first goal. The secret of increasing your chances of winning is by studying the players.

Anytime Goal Score Bet

Although the odds are slightly smaller than in the First Goal market, this bet is worth your time and money. You are betting on any player to score a goal in the game. It does not matter whether it is the first or last minute, half-time or full-time. As long as a goal is cored, you win the bet.
