How to bet on soccer?

Here, you will learn the numerous methods to bet on soccer and the terminology commonly used. Soccer is a widely-bet sport worldwide and there are a number of various ways to bet an individual game. 

Betting the 3-way Moneyline:

In soccer, there are numerous types of competitions with varying rules so it’s always good to be informed prior to placing a bet. In most of the competitions, draws may be the final result of the game, so there are 3 different  types of outcomes to bet on between Team A and Team B:

Team A wins

Team B wins

Team A and Team B draw

Soccer bets are based on results after 90 minutes of play or, ‘Regular Time’, which involves any time added by the referee in respect of injuries and other stoppages. Other Overtime, Golden Goals or Penalty Shoot-Outs do not count towards these betting since they are not considered ‘Regular Time’. 

Betting the 2-way Moneyline without the Draw:

Another way of betting soccer is to take the 2-way Moneyline, also called “Draw, No Bet” This is betting on the outcome of the game without the Draw. The two possible wagers are:

Team A wins

Team B wins

This form of betting reduces the option of the Draw, and will likely have inflated odds on the favourite and deflated odds on the underdog to win the match since a draw results in no bet.

Betting Totals:

Totals in soccer work more numerous than other sports and can be shown in multiples of .25 goals. Since scoring is minimal in soccer, bookmakers may oftentimes set a Total of 2.25 or 2.75. For instance, if you bet on the Over 2.25 goals, half your bet is placed on “Over 2” and the other half of the bet is placed on “Over 2.5”. When the game settles on 2, you lose half your bet (Over 2.5) and refunded the other half (Over 2). If the game gets settled on 3, you win both bets (Over 2 and Over 2.5).

Another example is as if you bet on the Under 2.75 goals. In this instance, half your bet is placed on the Under 2.5 goals and the other half is bet on the Under 3 goals. If the sports lands on 3, you’d lose half your bet (Under 2.5) and refunded the other half (Under 3).
