Football Betting

Opportunities to bet on football are now vast, varied and frequent. If you’re betting on a live Sky Sports televised match, for example, you can be faced with the opportunity to bet on up to 170 different markets. Everything from the match odds and number of goals scored, to the time of the first corner, time of the first booking and even whether a named player will score with his head or his left foot, for example.

Free Bets Aplenty in the World of Betting on Football

If you have a free bet and you think of yourself as a bit of a football expert then there's just one betting opportunity after another out there. At one time gamblers were restricted to matches in the main British leagues with very few bets available aside from the standard win-draw-lose. Boy has that changed in recent years?!

Now you can bet on football matches that take place all over the world and the days of making selections on 3pm and 7.30pm kick-offs are becoming a distant memory. Whether it's a youth match being played in England on a Tuesday afternoon, a late-night Brazilian fixture or an early morning match in Australia, you can place a bet on it even while it's being played.

But football betting isn’t restricted to the on-field action. If a managerial position becomes available at any football club bookmakers will almost immediately create "Next Manager Betting" markets. If a player is rumoured to be leaving his current club, or his contract is drawing to a close, then there’ll be transfer betting markets made accessible speculating on which club he will join in the upcoming transfer window.

You Name it, You can Bet on It!

Betting on soccer isn't just about the matches that are played. Go to any betting site and you'll find a whole host of football markets available for you to bet on and compile an accumulator.  As we've mentioned already, there are bountiful opportunities for bets to be placed when a game takes place but the football industry is about a lot more than the next big match. You can bet on who the next manager of your club or country is going to be, even if there isn't a vacancy at the moment. A popular bet is which Premier League manager will be the next to leave their club. Many call this 'the sack race' but it's more complicated than that because it can include resignations and managers leaving to join another club.

The transfer window also provides gamblers with the great opportunity to use new sign-up funds. You can place bets on which team a certain player will be playing for when the transfer window shuts. There's so much transfer speculation this has become a popular bet and can go into overdrive when the transfer window is about to close.

The other relatively new concept nowadays is that of Live Streaming which has faciliated the use of mobile phones, tablets and home cpmuters to bascially "stream"" sporting events to their devices. This has made a massive difference to the accessibility of mainstream (excuse the pun!) events as well as broadeneing the appeal of different sports that 20 years ago would not have been able to have been viewed at all unless you were actually physically there. This phenomenon has now grown and stretched across most bookies to become common place but there some of the bigger names like Bet365 (18+ T&Cs Apply) that are known for doing it in the most robust way.

In-Play Football Betting

In-Play betting has taken placing sports bets to a whole new level. For those who aren’t aware In-Play betting is the option to bet on an event after the match has, in the case of football, kicked off. Odds fluctuate throughout a game dependent on various factors, mainly scoreline and discipline. If a player has been red carded in a match then his team’s odds will lengthen, whereas if a goal has been scored then the odds on that team winning, quite obviously, become shorter.

It used to be the case that as soon as a game began then the opportunity to bet on it came to a close. That's definitely something that has been consigned to the past to the extent that this concept has become one of the most popular bets that bookmakers make available to their customers.

Almost every bookmaker on the Internet now offers In-Play football betting, and most offer betting on leagues from around the world throughout the day. Rarely will you go to a bookmaker site and not see a football match being offered for format of punting.

Free bets on football can all be used for In-play betting, so if you’re team take an early lead and you fancy them to hang on for the win you can use your free bet to back them, or if you want to bet on the team with 10 men to battle to a draw that’s an option too. Almost every bookmaker on the Internet now offers this idea, and most offer betting on leagues from around the world throughout the day. Rarely will you go to a bookmaker site and not see a football match being offered for In-Play betting.

Odds change throughout the game and it gives you the opportunity to use your free bet to make higher profits:

Example : If you think Liverpool are going to beat Southampton at home, they might start the game at 4-5 but with in-play betting after say, fifteen minutes, if it's still 0-0 Liverpool's then the odds on winning will have changed and they may be even money.

If you still think Liverpool are going to win then get in there and take those better odds.

In-play betting also gives you the chance to rescue a situation. If you've bet on Liverpool to win and they go 1-0 down and don't look like getting back into the game, you can still stake some money on Southampton and make some profits.

The cash-out facility has also been introduced recently. This allows you to end your bet before the game finishes. So if Liverpool go 1-0 up you can cash out at a figure less than the amount if you waited for the whole ninety minutes to be played, but a profit is a profit and just imagine how pleased you'll be if Liverpool end up drawing or losing the game.

How to take Advantage of a Competitive Business

It's not just the number of games that you can bet on that has seen a massive increase. There has been an absolute explosion in the bets that are available to be placed on games. You can bet on everything from the first to last goalscorer, how many goals are scored, the number of corners and a lot more. You can even place a bet on what name David Beckham will give to his Miami franchise or if any more members of One Direction will sign for Doncaster Rovers - talk about endless opportunities!

All this increase in football betting and the overall growth of online bookmaking has led to a situation that can really help us in our ongoing quests to make profits from gambling. A hugely expanding market is also a competitive one and companies are trying their hardest to grab new customers.
To do this they offer the football free bets to get new customers and even more offers and bonuses to ensure they keep them. When there's a major match on the battle begins to make sure customers bet with their company not their rivals.

Ante Post Betting

Rather than betting on a match taking place at the end of the week or a game taking place at that very moment, there's another way to use your bet. Bookmakers are always offering odds on future events such as the next World Cup in Russia, Champions League or Premier League title. These are great bets if your selection can stay in contention and you can get some excellent odds too. Just imagine how you'll feel if you place an ante post bet on your selection before the season starts at 20-1 and they get off to a great start. The odds on them winning the league may now be 4-1 but there you are sitting with your bet at that tasty 20-1.
