Football Betting for Beginners

Tuesday Jul 7, 2020

 It isn't easy to find a betting sport more popular than football. By far, football is the most watched sport on the planet, so it’s not surprising that most opt to place their bets on football, whether they’re newcomers or more experienced players. However, football betting is not a piece of cake for everyone, especially for new bettors. If you’ve ever wondered “how does football betting work?”, you’ve come to the right place for your answers.

 Our experienced team of experts have made it their mission to explain football betting in detail. We will take you on this exciting journey and explain everything step by step. Let’s dive in!

 Before You Start: Research

 If you’re already an avid football fan, feel free to skip this part. However, if you are not familiar with the basics of football, you might want to educate yourself first before you start investing your hard-earned money on football bets.

 Every bettor that is serious about wagering on football will tell you that you need to research both teams before you start placing bets. Look for previously played matches and pay attention to the teams’ scores. Take a more in-depth look into each team’s statistics, including the players’ ratings and possible injuries, as well as any changes in the team’s organization.

 All these might sound as minor factors, but they can significantly impact the match’s outcome, and all elements are included in the final odds offered on a sports betting site.

 Accumulators vs Singles

 Accumulator and singles bets are only two of many possible ways to make a bet on any sport. However, these two bets are the most widely used ones so we will focus on the differences between accumulator and single bets.

 Many football bettors are tempted to bet on accumulators as the winnings are higher than other bet types, but the odds are lower. What does this mean? By placing an accumulator bet, you will need to select a few matches and put them all on one betting ticket. Even if only one game does not finish to your advantage, your ticket will be invalid. However, if all games turn out the way you predicted them to, you stand to win a hefty amount.

 On the other hand, single tickets are not affected by other bets, as their name suggests. A single ticket is focused on a single game. So, if you place three matches on one ticket and two of those matches finish in your favour, while the third one doesn’t, you will still get paid. The odds aren’t as good as on accumulator bets, but you will still have more money than what you started with.

 Additional Advice

 If you’re reading this article, you have probably never gambled on sports before so we feel as if we should give additional advice that might help you keep your head clear while wagering.

 If you choose an accumulator bet, try not to get greedy. It’s easy to add a game or two to your ticket to increase your odds, but the outcome is almost always negative for the bettor. Stick to your initial plan.

 Remember never to bet more than you can afford to lose. It’s not difficult to get carried away when placing online bets, so keep your finances in mind. Moreover, have patience. You will not always win, and if you want to become a successful football bettor, you will need to pick your battles carefully.
