What are the Most Popular Soccer Betting Markets?
Anyone that has wagered on the most popular American sports before will be pleased to hear that soccer is very similar to bet on.
You can bet on the moneyline for soccer matches just like you might for basketball or football, while the spread options are commonly called handicaps and work in the same way.
There’s a range of player and team props available for the key tournaments too, as well as a selection of futures for league winner, top goalscorer, and so on if you want to put a bet on for the long term. The juice of each sportsbook should be considered as this is an indicator of the value you are receiving for your money because it’s the cut the sportsbook takes from your bet. This can change based on the sport or market.
Bet on Soccer
Soccer is growing in popularity in the United States. The MLS continues to expand and European matches are getting more broadcast attention. If you’re looking to get up early to wager on a Premier League match, take a look at our soccer betting guide that we’ve outlined below.
Moneyline 3-Way – This bet allows you to predict which team will win the match or if it will end in a draw (tie). It’s the simplest bet to make when it comes to the world’s most popular sport.
Futures Betting – Predict a team’s future success or failure with a futures bet. If you want to take Bayern Munich to win the Champions League, betting on them to do so now, during the group stage, would be considered a futures bet. Betting on a team to win the tournament after the group stage draw but before the group stage begins would also be considered a futures bet, it just has to be before the team’s playing in the final match have been decided.
Correct Score – Soccer is a low scoring sport, making guessing the correct score popular to wager on. These odds tend to be higher, which generate higher payouts to bettors. This betting method is best for people with increased knowledge of the sport, rather than newbie bettors.
