Football is one of the most famous sports in the World. A single football match, it possesses all the qualities of a good cinematic movie, the cliffhangers, the suspense, the unpredictable, the predictable, the underdog, the actions, and so on, even its fans are something else entirely. Football has also been regarded as a popular form of entertainment.

Unlike a cinematic movie, the result of a football match can be gambled on as football betting is also another famous type of betting in the sports betting. Supporters of football can place bets on football for the entertainment of it while some play football betting to earn them money. If you’re for the latter, you read this article carefully as we go through the popular football bets.

Match Betting on Football Betting

This is the most popular and common type of football betting. It is said to be simple, as all you need to do is place a bet on the three possible outcomes of a football match, which is a win, loss or draw. It is also known as the (1X2) bet in football betting. Placing (1) bet on a football match means you favour the home team to win the match, while (2) is when you predict a win for the away team and (X) is when both sides end the 90-minute match in a stalemate.

Double Chance on Football Betting

Second, on the list is the Double Chance type of football betting. This is similar to the first one on the list, but instead of placing a bet on either a win, loss, or a draw, you can predict two different types of outcomes in a single match. This football bet is a type of bet that has a higher chance of winning considering its reduced risk. You can place a bet on Manchester City to either win or draw their match against Liverpool in the Premier League, it can be represented as (1X) if the Citizens are the Home team. You can only lose this bet if Liverpool ended up defeating Man City at the end of the match.

Although the odds in this type of betting are low, placing a (12) bet means you win the bet when any of the team, the Citizens or the Reds, earns the victory at the end of the match, you can only lose when the match ends in a draw.

Handicap Betting

This type of betting is also known as a three-way betting on football. This bet is placed when you give a team a goal advantage over the other before the start of the football match. It is a popular type of football betting. Let’s say, Liverpool are playing a match against Porto FC and you give the English club a 1-goal handicap, this means that you’re predicting that Liverpool will end the match with two goals ahead of the Portuguese club.

Over/Under Football Betting

This is also a very popular form of football betting. This form of betting does not require you to predict the outcome of a football match, but only the goals that will be involved at the end of the game with no regard as to what team got the victory. With the standard bet being 2.5 goals, when you place a bet of Over 2.5 goals in a match, that means you’ll be a winner when the football game ends with three or more goals scored. While when you bet Under 2.5, the match must end with 2 or fewer goals scored in that match.

Betting on Football Tournament

A football fan placed a bet, at the beginning of the 19/20 campaign, on Liverpool to win the Premier League at the end of the season. He won when the Anfield outfield where crowned Champions. This is also another famous form of football betting, where instead of betting on a football match, you place you bet on a whole campaign or a tournament. You can place a bet where Chelsea will finish on the league at the end of the season. This type of betting always has huge odds accompanying it only at the beginning of the season, the odds undergo reduction as the league campaign starts. So, the best time to place this football betting is always at the beginning of a season.

These are the most popular form of football betting and can also slowly earn you a fortune, as you embark on your betting career.
