2023/24 English Premier League

The 2023/24 campaign will see the 32nd season of the Premier League, and 125th year of top-flight English football overall. Manchester City are currently the defending champions and dominant EPL side, having won seven titles over the course of the previous 12 years. Historically, their city rivals Manchester United have dominated the competition, winning 13 titles since the formation of the EPL in 1992. The EPL dominates UK online betting on football, with popular markets including the league’s outright winner, individual match wagering and the top scorer or ‘Golden Boot’ winner at the end of each season.

2023/24 Champions League

The UEFA Champions League emerged from the ashes of the old European Cup, and like the EPL, was inaugurated in the summer of 1992. Manchester City are also the defending UCL champions, having lifted the coveted trophy for the first time at the end of the 2022/23 campaign. Throughout the tournament’s full history, Real Madrid have been the most successful side, winning a total of 14 titles and eight since 1992. Once again, outright wagering is incredibly popular during the tournament, while totals betting fans should note that the 2022/23 iteration produced 372 goals in 125 matches at a rate of 2.98 per game!

2024 UEFA European Championship

The 2024 European Championship will be the 17th iteration of this quadrennial international football championship, which is organised by UEFA. This particular tournament will once again see 24 nations compete for the Henri Delaunay Trophy in Germany, while Italy are the defending champions after beating England on penalties in the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley. At the time of writing, France, England and Germany are the outright favourites to prevail in 2024, while EURO betting and individual player markets (including ‘Player of the Tournament’ and the Golden Boot winner) will also prove popular here.

2026 FIFA World Cup

The FIFA World Cup is the most bet on sporting event in the world, even ahead of the iconic Super Bowl. The 2026 tournament iteration, which will be co-hosted by Canada, Mexico, and the United States, is unlikely to buck this trend, as Argentina head north to defend the title they won thrillingly in 2024. While the FIFA World Cup betting odds have yet to be published ahead of 2026, you can expect to see a highly competitive ante post wagering market, while backing the identity of the coveted ‘Golden Boot’ winner will also generate a huge amount of interest!

Football Betting Markets

In order to successfully wager on these tournaments and implement your betting strategies for football, you’ll also need to understand the primary wager types and markets that are in play. Here are some examples of popular football live betting and ante post markets for your consideration!

Match Betting

This is arguably the most popular and straightforward football betting market, as you wager on the winner or outcome of an individual match. In league or round robin fixtures, the draw must be factored into your thinking, as this is the outcome in approximately 27.52% of all Premier League games alone.

Outright Betting

Outright betting requires you to back the winner of a particular league or tournament, while it’s most commonly leveraged as an ante post market that offers highly competitive odds.

Both Teams to Score (BTTS)

There are also popular subsets of match betting, including backing both sides to score (or not) in a particular game. This is an even money market that allows you to create additional value in matches with a clear, short price favourite.

Over/Under Betting

Similarly, you can engage in ‘totals’ betting regarding the number of goals that will be scored in a game. Here, sportsbooks will set theoretical thresholds (such as 2.5), and you’ll wager on whether the actual tally will be ‘over’ or ‘under’ this value.

Accumulator Betting

Accumulator bets combine between four and 20 selections in a single wager, while their respective odds are multiplied to create an extended price. This can offer enhanced payouts as a result, although allof your selections have to come in for the wager to be successful.

Correct Score

This is an example of a high-risk, high-reward betting market, as it requires you to accurately predict the score in a particular game. Even if you’re a knowledgeable punter, it can be incredibly hard to engage in correct score betting due to the number of variables in play.

Match Result and BTTS

This describes a popular combination bet, which requires you to accurately predict a match winner andwhether or not both sides will score during the game. This creates value in match betting markets, especially if you’re an experienced punter with knowledge of the competing sides.

First Goalscorer

A popular in-play betting market, wagering on the identity of the first goalscorer in a particular game often unlocks competitive odds and potentially generous returns.

Doubles and Trebles

As the best betting site for football, we also offer ‘Double’ and ‘Treble’ wagers. These require you to make two or three selections respectively, with the relevant odds multiplied to create a final, extended price. Such wagers represent smaller iterations of accumulator bets.

Number of Corners

When engaging in live online football betting UK, you can access various prop and micro wagers. These include wagering on the number of corners that will be won during a game, which is another over/under market that’s best leveraged when you’re watching the action unfold.

Football Betting Tips

For the nuance of such wager types and football betting to be explained, it’s also important to learn more about these markets and how to leverage them successfully. So, here are some expert football betting tips to help you on your way!

Place Early Outright Wagers

We’ve already touched on the popularity of outright betting on football, especially in relation to high profile tournaments such as the Premier League and UEFA Champions League. If you’re going to place this type of wager, however, it may be better to do so early, especially when backing relatively short price favourites to prevail. This is because outright odds tend to drift based on betting activity, so you’ll get the best price on teams like Manchester City and Arsenal to win the EPL almost immediately after the market has opened and before a raft of other punters rush to back them.

Create Additional Value in Match Betting

Unlike outright markets, match betting is often defined by shorter and less generous odds, especially in games involving clear and obvious favourites. So, you may occasionally want to create additional value in match wagering markets, either through selective ‘handicapping’ or placing acca bets. With the former, you’ll apply a virtual handicap to a heavy ante post favourite (such as -1.5 or -2.5 goals), in a bid to access enhanced odds without overly compromising your chances of winning. Just note that if you apply a handicap of -1.5 goals to a particular team, they’ll have to win by two clear goals for the wager to be successful.

Target Even Money Markets and Combination Betting

Betting on both sides to score (or not) and the over/under market for the total number of goals scored in a game are examples of even money markets, as there are only two potential outcomes in relation to your wager. They also lend themselves to in-depth data analysis, as you can study each competing side’s defensive and offensive statistics across a large number of games and relevant head-to-head encounters. You can also create combination wagers that include one of these markets and your predicted match winner, which may help you to unlock extended prices and higher potential returns.

Watch When Live Betting

Over a quarter of all online gamblers in the UK now place frequent in-play wagers, with live betting offering access to a huge range of markets. However, in-play football betting online UK also requires quick and informed decision making, along with a disciplined approach to bankroll management and setting stake amounts. Most importantly, it’s crucial that you watch the matches that you intend to bet on as they unfold where possible, as this enables you to react appropriately to in-game events in real-time and gauge the ebb, flow and momentum that exists between two sides at any point in time.

Prioritise Singles Betting

While handicap, acca and combination betting can help to create value in match wagering, such strategies should be used sparingly based on your market analysis and research. More commonly, you should look to prioritise singles betting, especially if you’re a relative novice who prefers straightforward wagers and careful risk management. After all, singles betting requires you to back just one potential match outcome, whether this is the eventual winner, or the total number of goals scored. As the best football betting site UK, Betiton offers access to thousands of singles wagering markets across multiple competitions, so you’ll be spoiled for choice when building your betslips online.

Responsible Gambling

All of the best UK betting sites are committed to the principles of responsible gambling, and here, at Betiton, we’re no exception to this rule. In fact, we’ve developed a number of tools to help you take greater control of your betting activity, from customisable deposit limits and our comprehensive ‘reality check’ to so-called ‘time outs’ and self-exclusion through the GAMSTOP scheme. With the latter, you can exclude yourself from online gambling activity for incremental timeframes between six months and five years, while also avoiding all branded marketing communications. At Betiton, we’re also proud to be partnered with a number of responsible gambling charities, including BeGambleAware and GamCare!

Frequently Asked Questions About Football Betting UK

What are the best online football betting markets?

There are many different bets for football, which is one of the reasons why this is such a popular sport for people to place wagers on. This is not an easy question to answer because what might be the best markets for one punter, might not be the best for another. However, in our opinion, and you are welcome to disagree, some of the top ones are player to be booked, both teams to score, Over/Under 2.5 goals, and player to score.

What is the best way to bet on football?

Once again, this is another subjective question since the best wager for one bettor might not be the best one for another. However, we feel that the best bet to make is an accumulator, or parlay, since this type of bet enables you land a big profit with a relatively small stake. For instance, with a mere £1 stake, you can end up winning hundreds or thousands if your luck is in and all of your selections come in.

Where can I find football predictions?

You can find predictions all over the Internet, but you do not have to go searching for any because we have our own quality predictions right here on this site of ours. Our predictions and tips have been written by no other than Djibril Cissé, who has won the Champions League with Liverpool and earned 41 caps for his country.

How to bet on football?

Betting on football at Betiton™ is a really simple process. All you need to do is log into your account, find the football section on the left, and click on it. You will then see all the different countries with leagues and competitions that you can wager on. Click on one that appeals to you, and then have a look at the different markets on offer until you find one that you want to put money on. Select it and it will be added to your betting slip. Then, input your stake, and hit submit when you are happy with the choices that you have made.

How do I predict a football match?

Before you go ahead and submit a wager on a side to win, you should take the time to do a bit of research where you have a look at the form that they have been in lately, whether they have any injuries or suspensions to key players, and their recent results against their opponents. Taking the time to look at such things can improve your chances of placing a wager that goes on to be a winning one. If you just jump in and place a bet on football randomly, then it will most likely go on to be a losing one.
