Football betting is the best! The game offers 90 minutes (and extra time) of betting opportunities. Most sites will offer the opportunity to bet in-play and you will definitely be able to place bets before kick off. The Betshaman football betting tutorial is a one pager on the key things you need to know in order to make the most out of your football bets.
Pre Match Betting tutorial
Most people put a pre match bet on who will win in 90 minutes. This is probably the most popular bet in football although many sites actually have anywhere between 70 – 300 different markets. Smaller markets include betting on correct scores (including half time scores and 1st goal scorer which can make things even more exciting. You can even bet on match results (how many goals will one team win by) as well as if both team are likely to score. These smaller markets are getting really popular so make sure you research the different sites to find the best alternative markets for you.If you love multiples then pre match betting is great for you because you can work out your potential return before the match starts.
In Play Betting
Live and in play betting can be really fun. It’s also good if you want to make a quick return. For example you can turn 1,000 Naira into 100,000 Naira by continuously betting on the next best thing to happen in a game. For example, who will win the next corner or get the next yellow card or gaol. It’s definitely exciting.
Cash Out enables you to get money out of your bet when you’ve had a couple of winners. You can also get some of your stake back if your bet isn’t working out. It’s great for both in play and pre match betting. We like to use cash out when we have placed a small bet and have a possible large return before some of the selections have finished.
Multiples are good for turning small bets into a large return.They’re also good because you get to bet on lots of matches without risking a lot of money. You may not win every time though because trying to pick 3 or 4 winners on the one single bet can be quite tricky. The most popular types of multiples tend to be:
Doubles – 2 selections
Trebles – 3 selections
Yankees – 4 selections (6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 accumulator)
Asian Handicap betting lets you take a draw out of the equation and just pick ether team to win. So if you want Liverpool to win you can bet Liverpool -2.5 on the Asian Handicap. This is a great betting option if you know your football and really follow your favourite team. Some betters prefer Asian handicap betting to standard betting as you tend to have a better chance of winning bets.
