How to Bet on Soccer

In soccer betting, you can make wagers on a variety of different markets. These include player prop markets and game props. Player props allow you to place wagers on specific players in a match, while game props focus on specific events within a match.

The three-way moneyline is the most popular wagering market in soccer. This type of bet pays out if either team wins the match or it ends in a draw after 90 minutes.

Over/Under bets

The Over/Under bet is a simple way to wager on the number of points, goals or runs that will be scored in a game. The sportsbooks set the lines and bettors can decide whether they think the game will go over or under the line. The Over/Under bet offers the possibility of winning big, but is also risky and should be placed with a responsible mindset.

Soccer or what some bettors outside the United States call ‘futbol’ is a sport that tends to have low-scoring games. That’s because it takes a lot of defense to keep teams from scoring too many points or goals. This is one reason why the Over/Under line can be difficult to predict. Weather conditions can also impact the Over/Under line, as teams won’t score as often in wet or windy conditions.

Moneyline bets

Moneyline bets are one of the most straightforward betting options. They only require that you pick the winning team. However, they don’t factor in the over/under or other factors, which can make them riskier than point spread bets.

If you win a moneyline bet, the sportsbook will return your original wager amount. If you lose, your moneyline bet will be lost. However, you can also get a push, in which case your moneyline bet will be voided and returned to you. This is common in soccer, where the game can end in a tie. This option is less common in baseball, basketball, football, and college football. However, it is available in hockey and other sports that can result in a tie at the end of regulation.

Parlay bets

Soccer is the world’s most popular sport, capturing millions of fans with exhilarating matches and fierce rivalries. While betting on soccer is an exciting way to wager, it is important to approach the game with a responsible mindset and manage your bankroll.

Parlay bets are a great way to increase your payout by combining multiple soccer bets on the same event. However, you should avoid combining “correlated” outcomes in your parlay. This includes betting on teams that are likely to score and concede goals at the same time.

In addition to the standard Money Line and Over/Under Goals Totals markets, FanDuel Sportsbook offers a variety of live soccer odds. These odds are updated as the game unfolds. Using live soccer odds enables you to become more immersed in the action on the field.

Futures bets

Futures bets allow sportsbook players to wager on the outcome of entire leagues or tournaments before the event takes place. They can offer much better odds than standard moneyline bets. For example, Leicester City won the 2016 Premier League with 1500:1 odds. In addition to their high payouts, futures bets also provide a casual and fun aspect to betting on sports.

Unlike standard bets, the odds on futures are constantly changing throughout the season. These changes are due to various factors, such as injuries and player performance. As a result, the odds can change dramatically in the course of just one game. These changes can make or break a bet, especially for underdogs. However, if you are patient enough to wait for the odds to adjust, you can reap big rewards.

Live betting

Live betting is a real-time wagering experience that allows you to place your bets while a game is being played. These bets are based on the actual performance of a team and can offer more diversified and unique wagering options with immediate outcomes. This type of wagering also allows you to make fast decisions based on game events that happen in real time, as the odds will quickly shift upon relevant game occurrences.

In-game wagers can be placed on a variety of bet types, including point spreads, moneylines, and totals. The dynamic nature of live betting creates more volatility and flexibility compared to pregame lines, but it can be a fun way to watch games with your friends or family. In addition, you can bet on player and team props.
