Your quiet night can turn into a victorious night when you see your football team that you have bet your money on has won the match. You will end up earning good money for the performance that your favorite team has put in the field. Football is one of the most popular sports all over the globe and it is also the sport where millions and millions of pounds are used to wager bets. Football odds are a bit different from other odds and hence it might take a while for a novice bettor to master the odds.
Knowledge of Betting Fractions
The first thing that you need to check out is the numbers that are written on the side of your favorite team’s name or your favorite football player’s name. These numbers are usually written as fractions like 2/3, 6/1 or 13/5. Normally, football betting odds will be written in fractions only. You must know what these fractions mean. For example, if your team is given an odd of 3/1 of winning a game, then it means that for every pound that you invest in your team, you will be getting back three pounds as well as your 1 pound stake. You also need to have an eye on the side of the line the betting odd numbers are. If the number is on the right side of the line, then it means that you need to invest that number in money in order to receive the number that is on the left side of the line. So, if betting odd is 1/5, then you need to invest 5 pounds to earn the single pound profit. Normally, odds like these are seen if a strong team is pitted to play against a weak team.
Betting on Goals
You not only have the option of betting on which team would win, but you can even bet on the number of goals that would be scored in the entire game or by the winning team. These bets will come in handy if you are not in a position to predict which team would win the football match. Betting on the goals will help you if you feel that both teams are good at attacking and scoring goals or defending goals. With online betting becoming very popular and with more or less correct football betting odds, you can now bet on your favorite football team easily sitting in the comforts of your home.
