Bookmakers are increasingly offering markets when betting on various sports. The reality is that it's mounted, thinking absolutely of football, and we're used to the most typical classic: playing a token to the winner. But does it make a profit? It can be, of course, but we know when researching other potential markets that the alternatives go far further and that we have greater chances of success in many than in the 'Actual outcome' or 'Match winner' market (the name varies depending on the operator).
Rest / end (double outcome)
This is another very common market for those who are betting on football. You have to guess how the first half finishes and how the match finishes (home, draw, or away) to win. From this, we opted for the rest of one of the three alternatives and the end of another. If Real Madrid and Barcelona were to meet then the options would be:
Real Madrid - Real Madrid
Real Madrid - Tie
Real Madrid - Barcelona
Tie - Real Madrid
Tie - Tie
Tie - Barcelona
Barcelona - Barcelona
Barcelona - Tie
Barcelona - Real Madrid
Over and above the previous example, this variant is ideal to increase a big favorite's share. For eg, if Madrid's triumph over Levante pays just 1.16 and we're sure it's going to win, we're playing Real Madrid's 'Rest / Final' which can give a far more lucrative fee of 1.53 euros for every euro bet. To beat the bookmaker on this one, we'll have to wait until Madrid finishes the first half up on the scoreboard and holds it until the end of the match.
The handicap matches
Finally, a classic one: bets on disabilities. They 're really popular in other sports as well as in football, how else could it be. In this situation, we need a more or less simple favorite again, as the impairment can serve as a balancing mechanism between one team and another, thereby the effectiveness of certain teams. We'll have two options: basically, remove one or more goals from the favorite in order to raise the quota for his win, or allocate it to the other team for the same reason.
Let us take a look at this true example. Athletic Bilbao earns Las Palmas in the middle of the table, penultimate and in the relegation zone. The victory for a local bet on the match's winner Pay 1,45, a price that isn't scandalously low but it's not too high either. So, given the circumstances and considering that Bilbao can not only win, but can also win by more than one goal difference, we'll be playing a little money at the 'Athletic Bilbao (-1)' variant, whose fee for each wagered euro amounts to EUR 2.20. This means for us the game begins 0-1 in favor of Las Palmas, so we need Bilbao to win by at least two goals to win the award.
Effect and Expectations
Some bookmakers like William Hill offer the option of betting on the outcome (home, draw or away) and, at the same time, on the number of goals the match will have. Here we have another really good game option which has a strong favorite in advance. Let's take the example of a Barcelona Vs Getafe that only pays 1.11. Reviewing other markets, however, we see that the alternative 'Barcelona and 3 or more goals in the match' takes the chances to 1.30; 1.70 for 4 or more goals; and 2.60 for 5 or more goals. If we are faced with a motivated Barça and with all its statistics, considering such quotas is well worth risking. Another choice involving the match 's outcome and goals is 'Result and both will score.' If the same example match continues, the share corresponding to 'Barcelona and both will win' hits 2.45. In conclusion, this competition helps one to raise the quotas considerably. And while this often implies an increase in risk, it is much fairer and more efficient than putting a large amount of money on the relatively insignificant Blaugrana triumph 1.11.
The 'Double Chance' is a version of the '1X2' market that helps us to cover ourselves a little, increasing the odds of success to 66.66 percent despite the fact that, at the same time, the possible benefits are decreasing. As its name suggests, it's about choosing two of the three possible outcomes a match has: 'Home or tie' (1X); 'Local or Guest' (12); 'Win or away' (X2). This can fit very well for experiences of unclear prognosis. For instance, if a big team like Real Madrid visits another important but smaller team like Sevilla, and we think the merengue team would have a hard time but we don't dare to go to the premises, the 'Sevilla or tie' option (1X) can give us a more than interesting fee.
Both teams score
This market has parallels to the one set out in the previous paragraph but points to other circumstances. Specifically, why not on a roll to the games that face two strong teams, with potentially risky forwards. In such situations, betting on the probability that both converts will be much smarter and more efficient, as this way we avoid taking unnecessary risks. It is important to find out, research the numbers relating to the current condition of the protagonists and also look at the 'face to face' between the two, in order to obtain revenue from this market.
Find out and do your homework before betting on this market: if you are aware of accidents, suspensions, figures and facts, you will get an advantage.
The chance of both teams scoring is high in many of the world's leagues these days. Football is very structured and a strong tactical strategy is sometimes enough to confuse the most powerful and the youngest. That is why we are highlighting this segment as one of the most interesting for soccer betting to benefit from.
