Football Odds – What To Bet On

Have a scan at any bookmaker’s football section and you’ll see a ton of betting markets available on the glorious game.

Of course, there’s outright betting on leagues and tournaments, but some individual matches can offer over 100 available betting markets.

Getting to grips with all of these markets can be tough going so we’re here with a helping hand to guide you through the football betting maze.

Match Odds

There are plenty of betting options when it comes to a big game, either pre-match or in-play – so we’ll run through the most popular betting markets.

1 X 2

The heart of football betting:

1 – Home win
X – Draw
2 – Away win

The choice is yours.

Spoiler alert – this market covers 90 minutes play plus injury time ONLY – extra time doesn’t count.

Goalscorer Odds

Fancy Salah to bag one against Everton? Then goalscorer markets are for you!

You can back your favourite player to score the first goal, the last goal, the next goal, score anytime, score a double or a hat-trick – take your pick and bring on the goals.

Goals Odds

There’s also no shortage of goals betting options – the most popular is over or under 2.5 goals in a match.

Think it’s going to be a 0-0 snoozefest? Then you’ll be looking at backing ‘under 2.5 goals’.

Predicting a “Desmond”? Then all aboard the ‘over 2.5 goals’ express.

You can also bet on total team goals, both teams to score and exact goals in a match, plus loads more – you get the drift.

Outright Odds

Every football league needs a winner and the bookmakers have you covered with outright betting markets available on them all.

Remember that crazy time Leicester City won the Premier League? Well, you could have backed them at an unbelievable 5000/1 at the start of that season.

An outright bet on league winners gives you an interest over the whole season – although we can’t guarantee we’ll see another 5000/1 winner anytime soon.

Tournament Winner Odds

Does exactly what it says on the tin – you’re betting on who will win a specific tournament like the Champions League or the World Cup (surely England one of these days?).

Like having a bet on the outright odds market, a bet on the tournament winner gives you an interest as long as your team stays in the mix.

Top Scorer Odds

Talking of having a tasty interest over a whole season or tournament – the Top Scorer market is another cracker.

As simple as it sounds, you’re betting on who will top the scoring charts in a given league or tournament.

Acca Odds

A Saturday isn’t a Saturday without a football acca right?

Big wins for small stakes is what we’re all looking for when it comes to an acca.

Your bet’s a multiple so every team or selection has to win for it to land.

Live Betting On Football

Just when we thought watching live football couldn’t get any better, live football betting came along.

There’s a ton of betting markets offered by bookmakers in-play including the match winner, what team will score next and even which side will take the next throw-in.

Odds Boosts

Odds Boosts are like a happy hour at your local – you were probably going anyway but now it’s even sweeter.

These are short-term enhanced prices giving you tasty extra value on some of your favourite bets.

Make sure you shop around when having a bet to ensure you’re getting the best price for your fancy.
