Now let’s take a look at double chance markets, offering customers two ways to win. This market means you wager on a team to either win or draw their fixture. As long as they do not lose the match in question, your bet will be a winner. Odds for double chance bets can be especially tempting when one of the teams is a strong outsider. For instance, when a much smaller club is playing Man United away from home.
Draw No Bet
The same to the double chance market is the draw no bet selection. And as one of the most comprehensive betting sites out there, you will find draw no bet markets for the vast majority of games available to bet on. Draw no bet wagers do exactly as you think from its name: a tied game means the stake is returned to the your account. This is especially attractive as it means you don’t have to worry about a drawn result affecting your betting result.
One of the most popular football betting options at betting sites and sports bookmakers is the goals over/under market. In this market, football fans just need to try to predict how many goals are going to be scored in the march to place their bet accordingly. The goals under/over market is commonly set at 2.5, meaning that there must be at least three goals for an over 2.5 goals wager to be a winner. Goals under/over bets are available on a fixture, or just on one team in a certain game.
This is where we get a little bit more complicated when we bring in handicap betting. A handicap betting means a team is essentially given a boost to their score for the purpose of a bet. For instance, if Everton were away to Man U, a possible wager on the Toffees could be Everton +1 on the handicap market. And if the actual score was a 1-1 draw, the bet would be a winner and Everton would be given an extra goal.
