Football betting is a world in itself, in this article we will learn about the most important and popular Football betting online.
The most common form of football betting is full-time, with two types of betting being the most popular – 1X2 (Win to the Guest 2 / Draw X / Win at Host 1) and the Asian Handicap bet which we will talk about it later.
In the 1X2 bet, you can bet on two things, either on the winning team or on a tie. This type of bet is often referred to as a triple bet. On the other hand, the Asian handicap bet was created primarily to eliminate a tie as an option and to make one-sided matches even more exciting.
The bookmakers will offer you a handicap that will be added to the score of one team after the match or deducted from the other team.
For example, having a handicap of +1.5 goals means that if you add 1.5 goals to that team’s full score, and the score is greater than the opposing team, then that bet will be a win. This team has a “handicap cap”. Handicap -1.5 goals on the other hand are deducted from this team. However, if this team’s score remains greater than their opponents once the handicap is taken down, it is a winning bet. It should also be noted that the usual duration of a football match is 90 minutes. In many matches, it is not uncommon to see two or three minutes of extra time, but it is still considered a normal time for betting purposes. Extra time or penalties do not count in the normal triple bet.

If you are wondering “How can we bet on football teams online?”, the result of the match is the most common answer. Betting on the outcome of a match is often referred to as betting 1X2. Easy to learn how to read 1×2 odds. The number 1 denotes one team (usually the home club), the X denotes a tie and the number 2 denotes the opposing team (usually the guest club).
The match result is the most common form of football betting (along with Asian handicap betting).
How to read 1×2 odds? Well, we can see that:
Burnley is the home team (1) chance of winning 2.50,
The chances of a tie = 3.25
While Swansea is the away team (2) Winning chance 2.80
|Swansea City||V||Burnley Team|
It is important to note that when betting in Knockouts tournaments, there is often the possibility of overtime playing.
If this is the case, the 1×2 bet only covers the regulations for a period of 90 minutes.
Or if you bet that the match ends in a draw, your bet will be the winner even though overtime will be played.
If you bet on which team wins and it is overtime, the bet will be forfeited.
Another popular way to bet on football is the Asian handicap betting market. The popularity of the Asian handicap bet has exploded in recent years, with people betting tens of thousands of pounds on the Asian handicap bet in football every weekend.
To begin with, Asian handicap betting odds can appear a little complicated at first glance. But this video below gives you a basic introduction:
(-) To simplify the matter, the Asian bet gives both teams a handicap, either an increase in goals (+) or a decrease in goals.
Below we can see an example of the potential of the Asian handicap, with the chances of an upcoming match between Arsenal and Liverpool lined up. Arsenal has a handicap of -0.5 goals while Liverpool has a handicap of +0.5 goals
This means that if you bet on Arsenal goals -0.5, Arsenal must win the match for you to win your bet.
On the other hand, if you bet on Liverpool, a Liverpool win or a tie will be enough to win your bet
Asian Handicap Prediction (-0.5) – Current score (0:0) – 90 minutes
The easiest way to understand handicap betting is to take the outcome of the match at the end and adjust the score to include each team’s handicap.
If a team has a handicap minus (as Arsenal has in the example above), we deduct that handicap from the final match score points.
If they continue to drive in the game, after deducting the handicap, then that’s a winning handicap bet.
On the other hand, if the team has a positive handicap (as is the case with Liverpool), we simply add the handicap to the final score points.
If the team continues to lead in the game afterward after adding the handicap, that’s the winning handicap bet.
So let’s say you bet Arsenal with a handicap of -0.5.
The score at the end of the match is 2 in favor of Arsenal – 1 in favor of Liverpool.
Is your handicap bet that Arsenal will win?
So, we simply deduct Arsenal’s goal handicap -0.5 and have an adjusted record from Arsenal 1.5, Liverpool 1. With the -0.5 goal handicap deducted, Arsenal still “wins” the game by half a goal.
In this case, the handicap bet on Arsenal is the winner.
But what if we bet on Liverpool with a +0.5 handicap? In this example, let’s then say the match ended in a 2-2 draw. Is our bet on Liverpool the winner? We add a +0.5 goal handicap to the Liverpool score, giving us the adjusted score for Arsenal 2, and Liverpool 2.5.
With this modified scheme, the Liverpool team “wins”, which means that the handicap bet on Liverpool is a winning bet.
The Asian handicap bet is a great way on Football betting online, making even the most lopsided competitions suddenly an exciting match, not to mention the possibility of finding a hidden amount in the Asian football betting markets. There is also the possibility of betting what is known as the Asian Quarterly Handicap bet.
The Double Chances bet allows you to bet on two of the three possible outcomes of a football match in one bet.
In the double chance bet, you can bet on the following combinations of the outcome of the final match:
Home team win/draw
Or the away team win/draw
Home team win / away team win
In the example below, we can see the market for double betting opportunities, with chances in YYYSPORT for an upcoming match between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.
|Manchester City and a tie||Borussia Dortmund and a draw||Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund|
As in the article here “At a Draw No Bet” market, the odds on a Double Chance bet are usually much lower than if you were betting on only one outcome, and as with Double Chance, your bet covers a combination of two possible outcomes.
Correct Score Bet is when you bet on the exact score at the end of a particular match score.
These bets are popular with casual bettors because the chances of any option are usually big.
The final outcome betting strategy is to bet on the correct combination of goals.
For example, if you think a particular match will end with a score of 2-0 for the home team, you can choose this as your correct score bet.
But you can also cover a range of potential points, not just 2-0.
Also, You can for example place extra bets 1-0, 1-1, 2-1.
And your overall payout will be shorter but in covering a range of valid points you give yourself some insurance in case your blind fails 2-0.
