Types of Bets
The simplest bet that can be placed on soccer matches is on the result of the game, this is known as a ‘1X2’ bet. The bet works in that the home team is the ‘1’, the away team the ‘2’ and the teams drawing the ‘X’. Another common bet that is placed on football could be the number of goals that will be scored by each team or all together, you can say whether the goals will be over or under a specific number. For example, if you picked over 3.5 goals the bet would pay out if 4+ goals are scored and if you bet below 3.5 you would win if 3 or less goals are scored.
