    Betting On Football Goalscorer

    Here, you bet on which player gets well the ball into the goal and scores the first. Sounds very simple, right? It’s a fairly simple concept but you need to take some time to check the rules that apply to your bookmaker’s handbook. Issues such as own goals and substitutions can vary from place to another.

    In some cases, the player you are betting on does not need to be the first to score. Some bookmakers offer a variation of the bet where you also win as long as your player scores the second or third goal. There is another variation called the Last Goal Scorer. Here you bet on who will score the last goal. Alternatively, you can bet on a player to score at any time during the match. This is known as the Anytime Goalscorer.

    Betting on the first scorer and the final result is also a possibility and it is called a Scorecast. But not one to be recommended!  Bookmakers are big-time favorites to win this type of bet, so it’s best to invest your money in something more interesting and with more potential for profit.
