Select the game that you would like to bet on
You can pick from different leagues that are found under the “football” option on the left-hand side. After clicking on the football menu, you can pick any league of your choice from the ones that are available.
Select your Bet Type
The easiest bet to understand is the full-time result. A full-time result means you choose the team that you think will win or draw (tie). For example, in a game between FC Edmonton (home team) and Toronto FC (away team), you will notice that there are odds under 1 (home team), X (draw) and 2 (away team). To place a full time bet, you choose the odds under the team that you are expecting to win, or a draw, if you don’t expect either team to win. To the right of the selected game’s odds, you will see a number i.e. 55, if you click on this number, other bet types come up.
Other Bet Types
Asian Handicap Betting
Asian handicap betting is suited for in-play gambling. Each team is set a specific handicap for any given match; a draw is not a factor in this type of betting. On Asian handicap betting, the one thing that users should remember is that scores are reset from the time that you place your wager; you can test it with the Bet365 bonus code. If a team that you want to place your wager on are winning 3-0 and you place a -0.5 Asian handicap bet, then you will need them to win that game from the time that you placed your bet on.
In this scenario, forget about the 3-0 score, as far as you are concerned, the score is 0-0 and you need your team to win within the remaining game time. Asian handicap betting is beneficial for in-play betting because if you notice that a particular team is starting to dominate a match even when they are 1-2 down, you can go with that team on an Asian handicap knowing that the score is reset to nil-nil from the time you place your bet.
Asian handicap betting also works for pre-game betting especially when you notice that one team is way stronger than the opponent and they will beat them by more goals. For example, in a game between Toronto FC and FC Edmonton and a player backs Toronto F.C -1.5, he or she requires them to win by two goals or more. If the user backs FC Edmonton +1.5 goals, the user requires them to lose the match by no more than one goal to win the bet.
A double chance bet allows users to place a single bet with two different outcomes i.e. the home side wins or draws (ties) the away side wins or draws or no tie bet, this means that either the home side or the away side wins.
This means that you can place a bet on your prediction of what the final score will be.
Half Time/Full Time
A half time/full time bet requires the gambler to place a bet on what they think will be the correct score of the first half and the final score. Total Goals, gamblers bet on the total number of goals that they think will be scored in the game. “Over 2.5” means there will be 3 goals or more, while “under 2.5” means there will be 2 goals or less. Other bet types include goal line and draw no bet.
Once you pick the odds that you would like to place a wager on, your selection will be presented under bet-slip on the upper right-hand side. “Stake” refers to the amount of money that you would like to place as a bet, the amount you expect to win is placed under the “to win” column.
