Football Betting at Betiton™

Last Updated: 26-07-2022 08:37

When it comes to online sports betting, it is fair to say that football is the most popular sport out there for people to place bets on today. This is the reason why we have made sure that we offer our punters a variety of football betting markets to make use of. Here at Betiton™, you can place football bets on the biggest tournaments and leagues such as the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Champions League. Additionally, you will also find the latest football betting odds for a variety of minor leagues and competitions. We have certainly got you covered when it comes to online football betting.

Football Bets at Betiton™

What is it that makes betting on football so popular among sports betting fans? Well, one of the main reasons why sports bettors love to make bets on this entertaining sport is the fact there are so many different markets that you can place a bet on, ensuring that boredom does not rise its ugly head. Below we are going to take a closer look at some of the most popular types of markets that you can choose from when you are thinking about placing a football bet.

Match Result (Win/Draw/Win)

Betting on the match result is one of the most popular markets in football, and all that you are doing is gambling on the side that you think will go on and win the match. If your chosen club does go on to win, then you will get a nice win. On the other hand, if you team loses, you will lose your stake. If you think that the two teams are evenly matched, then you can also make a bet on a draw.

Both Teams to Score (BTTS)

In a football match both teams might score goals, only one team might score a goal, or neither of the two teams will find the back of the net. With the BTTS market, you are able to make a bet on whether both teams will score or not. This is a simple yes or no market—we will give you odds for both outcomes happening, and then it is up to you to put a stake on what you think the final outcome will be.

Goalscorer/First Goalscorer

In a game of football, you can make a bet on a player to score or on a player to be the first goalscorer. This is a popular market among football bettors due to the fact that there are often some good odds on offer. If there is a defender who is a monster at corners or set-pieces, then you might want to consider placing a bet on them to score because the odds for a defender to score is always going to be high.

Over/Under

You can also make a bet on whether the number of goals scored in a game will be over or under a particular total. For example, we will give you odds for over/under 2.5 goals and it is then up to you to decide what the likely outcome is going to be. If you bet on over, you need there to be three goals to win your bet, while if you bet on under, you need there to be fewer than three goals to win the wager.

Doubles and Trebles

If you want to increase your odds when you are online football betting UK, then you can do so by making a double or a treble bet. With a double bet, you choose two selections, and the odds are then multiplied together to give you your final odds. With a treble bet, you obviously select three outcomes, and the odds are then multiplied together. With such bets, you need all of your selections to be correct in order for you to win your wager.

Accumulators

If you make a bet with more than three selections, then you have made what is known as an accumulator. These work in the same way as a double or treble since all the odds are combined and you need to get all of your selections right in order for you to win the wager. Our customers enjoy placing such bets because they give them the chance to land big profits from relatively small stakes.

Correct Score

If you are after a risky market that pays well, then we recommend that you take a look at the correct score market. As you can guess, with this kind of market, you have to predict the final score and it has to be correct in order for you to win.

Number of Cards

Yellow cards are an integral part of football, and nowadays you can put a bet on the number of cards that will be dished out during a game. We will provide you with a number, such as 5.5, and then you can decide whether there will be over or under that amount in the match. Also, you can bet on specific players to pick up a booking, and this is a type of bet that can be pretty lucrative if you end up getting it right.

Number of Corners

You can also put a wager on the number of corners that there will be. Once again, this is an over/under market, so we will provide you with a variety of numbers, and leave it up to you to decide on what the final outcome is going to be. This is a market that you should consider making use of when you have two attack-minded teams facing off against each other.

Penalties

You can also put a bet on whether there will be a penalty in a game—this is a yes or no market. In addition to this, in knockout matches, you can also make a wager on whether the match will go to penalties, and then you can put a wager on the side that you think will go on to win the penalty shootout.

Goal Time

We will give you a range of time intervals and then you can put a wager on whether a goal will be scored during that time period. This is a popular market among football bettors because it adds a degree of excitement to the game—if you bet on a side to score between the 20th and 30th minutes, then for those ten minutes you are going to be on the edge of your seat whenever one of the teams is attacking.

Betting In-Play Football

When online sports betting first came about, you could only make a bet on a sporting event before it started. However, nowadays, things have changed, and you can now do some football betting in-play. This means that you can make bets on a match when it is live, meaning that you can analyse how a game is going and then put your bets accordingly. We offer plenty of in-play football betting markets at Betiton™ and we have listed some below for you:

  • Both teams to score
  • Winning team
  • Draw no bet
  • Goalscorer
  • First goalscorer
  • Next goalscorer
  • Last goalscorer
  • Match corners
  • Correct score
  • Number of cards

So, as you can see from the above list, we offer plenty of markets to keep our customers thoroughly entertained when they are gambling on live football. If you find yourself getting bored when betting on football at Betiton™, we do not think that the blame lies at our feet.

Outright Betting

An outright bet is a wager that is placed on the final outcome of a whole league or competition as opposed to a single wager on an individual match or event. For example, you can bet on who will be the champions of the Premier League in England for the 2022/23 season, or you can bet on the side that will go on the claim the World Cup trophy in December.

You can make an outright wager before a tournament starts or while the event is happening. However, we must stress that the football bet odds will be the highest before the event has started, so this is the best time to think about placing a wager, if you have a good feeling as to who will go on and win the competition.

How Does Football Betting Work?

Football betting works in pretty much the same way that any other type of sports gambling works. The odds are set by the bookie, and they represent the ratio between the wager and the winnings for a given outcome should you decide to put a bet on it. The odds are usually represented in fractions (5/1), but they can also be shown in decimals (6.00), and you can choose which ones you prefer—we will take a closer look at these a bit later on in this article.

You just need to take a look at the various markets that are on offer for a footballing event and then choose the one that appeals to you. If the market that you go for comes with odds of 3/1 or 3.00, it means that you will win yourself £3 for every £1 that you wager, should your bet go on to be a winning one.

What Are Football Betting Markets?

Football betting markets are practically the wagers that are available for you to make on football at an online bookmaker. The markets are offered alongside their odds so that you can get an understanding as to how much you would go on to win should the bet that you make be a winner. The markets are basically anything that can happen in a football match.

Football Betting Options at Betiton™

Earlier on we told you that you could bet on a wide variety of football events right here at Betiton™, and this was definitely not a lie. Now we are going to take a closer look at some of the big footballing competitions that you can put your money on when you are wagering at Betiton™. If you are going to start football betting with us, then we really do recommend that you try your luck on these events.

World Cup Betting

When it comes to international football, it is fair to say that the FIFA World Cup is the biggest international tournament that is played. This is an event that all football fans around the world look forward to watching and wagering on when it rolls around every four years. The last tournament was held in Russia in 2018, and many of our players did plenty of World Cup betting when it was on.

Four years have already passed, which means that there is another World Cup fast approaching—the 2022 edition will be played in Qatar in the months of November and December, and France will be the country that is trying to retain the title. However, the likes of Brazil, Germany, Spain, Argentina, and England have the talent to prevent the French from doing that.

Just like with the 2018 edition, we are expecting a lot of gambling action from our punters, which is why we will make sure to have a variety of markets and top odds on offer when this competition rolls around. There might even be some World Cup related promotions, so please do make sure to check back with us a little bit closer to the time.

Also, each nation has to earn the right to compete in this prestigious competition, so there are a variety of qualifying competitions to see which 32 teams are going to compete at each addition. We will, you will be happy to hear, offer our players the chance to bet on the qualifying matches as well as the matches at the tournament itself.

In addition to this, we will also be uploading some of our own free World Cup 2022 predictions for this competition, so be sure to give those a read when they become available. Our free predictions have been written by our very own experts, so you would be extremely foolish not to take advantage of the tips that they are giving – we will speak more about these a little bit later on.

EURO Betting

The UEFA European Championship is another huge international tournament that, like the FIFA World Cup, happens once every four years. The last edition of this competition was the 2020 Euros, which was a unique event since the matches took place across 12 host countries instead of just the one host country. The next edition of this tournament will be played in June and July of 2024, and it will be hosted by just Germany instead of having many different hosts.

Just like with the World Cup, there is a qualifying process before the main competition starts to see which 24 teams will be battling it out to be crowned the best international side in Europe. We are well aware that our customers like to do a spot of EURO betting, which is why we will make sure that we have markets available for the qualification process and the tournament proper.

The reigning champions are Italy after they beat England in the 2020 final at Wembley on penalties, and both these teams, along with the likes of France, Germany, and Spain, will fancy their chances of going on to win the trophy if they make it past the qualifying stages, of course. Obviously, when Euro 2024 rolls around, we will provide you with a number of outside bet odds so that you can, if you so wish, place a wager on the team that you think will go on and win the whole competition.

Champions League Betting

The World Cup might be the biggest international football tournament out there, but when it comes to club football, there is no competition out there that is a big as the UEFA Champions League. This event, which takes place every year, sees the top club teams in Europe battle it out for the right to call themselves the best of the best.

When it comes to Champions League success, Real Madrid are the most successful team by a country mile as they have won this prestigious trophy 14 times. AC Milan are next in line with seven titles to their name, while Bayern Munich and Liverpool have six, and Barcelona have five. The likes of Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain are yet to win this huge competition, but with the squads that they have, we feel that it is only a matter of time before they manage to pick up their maiden title.

With regard to Champions League betting, at Betiton™ you will be able to find the latest football betting odds and a variety of markets for both the qualifying rounds and the competition proper. While we cannot guarantee that you will end up with a win whenever you do some gambling on this event, what we can guarantee though is that you will be entertained thoroughly by the football that is on display in this tournament.

Premier League Betting

The English Premier League is considered to be one of the biggest and best football leagues across the globe thanks to the fact that many of the best footballers out there ply their trade in this league. For this reason, it is extremely popular outside of the United Kingdom, with many of the top teams in the league being able to boast of fans from all over the globe.

It is the first division of English football, which means that it is home to 20 of the best teams in England. This is a league that every footballer wants to play in because not only does it give them the chance to play against the best of the best, but it also pays them very well. Each team plays 38 matches in a season, so there are plenty of games each season that you can place some bets on to try and make some nice winnings. To add to the excitement, there is a relegation and promotion system in place—the three teams that finish at the bottom of the table are relegated to the Championship, England’s second division, while the top two teams plus a Play-Off winner from the Championship are promoted to the Premier League.

Since the English Premier League is the biggest and best domestic competition according to many, it should not come as much of a surprise to you to hear that we offer a variety of markets and competitive odds for Premier League betting. In fact, we do not think that we are exaggerating when we say that we are one of the best bookies around for betting on this competition.

In the table below, we have provided you with the all-important dates for the next instalments of the four big competitions that we just spoke about above.

Tournament Date Reigning Champion
2022 FIFA World Cup 21st November – 18th December France
2024 UEFA European Championship 14th June – 14th July Italy
2022/23 UEFA Champions League 21st June – 10th June Real Madrid
2022/23 English Premier League 6th August – 28th May Manchester City

Bet on Other Football Leagues

Aside from the tournaments and leagues that we have spoken about above, we also provide our customers with a wide variety of other competitions and leagues that you can put bets on. This is because we know that there are many football fans out there who like betting on other leagues apart from the EPL, and we always do our best not to disappoint our punters.

Other top leagues in Europe includes the likes of the Serie A in Italy, the Bundesliga in Germany, the La Liga in Spain, and Ligue 1 in France. We will provide you with gambling options for all of these leagues, so if you support a team in one of them, you will be able to place bets to your heart’s content. In fact, think of any league in any country, no matter how big or how small, and there is a very good chance that you will be able to bet on it with us.

Below we have listed some of the less popular domestic competitions that you will be able to bet on should you decide to open an account here at Betiton™:

  • English FA Cup – both men and women
  • English Football League Cup – both men and women
  • National League
  • The Championship
  • League One
  • League Two
  • UEFA Super Cup

Bet on International Football Matches

Apart from the two big international competitions that we just spoke about above, you will also be able to put wagers on the likes of the UEFA Nations League if you decide to open an account with Betiton™. In addition to this, whenever there are international friendlies in play, we will provide you with odds and a variety of different markets so that you can try and make a profit off of them.

Football Transfers Betting

Football fans across the globe are not big fans of the summer because there is a long break between the end of a season and the start of a new one. Weekends really can seem quite empty when your team is not playing, but there is one thing that helps to add a bit of excitement and this is the summer transfer window.

It is always interesting and exciting to read the rumours about who your club might be signing, and it is even better if those rumours are true, and your club ends up signing a quality player that you cannot wait to watch play when the new season begins. Here at Betiton™, we help to increase the entertainment and excitement levels even more by giving our punters the chance to put their money on football transfers.

For example, you can put a bet on what club you think Cristiano Ronaldo will be playing at once the summer transfer window has come to a close. Or you can put a bet on whether you think Neymar will still be playing for Paris Saint Germain after the summer.

Special Football Bets

In addition to wagering on potential transfers, we also allow our football betting fans to take advantage of a number of other special football bets. Below we have listed some special football bets so that you can get a good idea as to what we mean:

  • Liverpool to win the Premier League, FA Cup, and the Champions League
  • Who will make it into England’s Squad?
  • Will Erling Haaland break the record for the most goals scored in a single EPL campaign?
  • Who will be the next Premier League manager to be fired?
  • Who will be England’s next manager?

What Are Football Betting Odds?

One important concept that you need to fully understand when you are betting on football is football betting odds. The reason for this is because this is what indicates the probability of an event happening as well as giving you an idea as to how much you can potentially win should your wager go on to be a successful one.

Odds can be shown in three different formats, and these are decimals, fractions, and American. The odds in the United Kingdom are usually shown in fractions, but if you prefer decimals, then you are free to change them on this site. Below we are going to take a closer look at these three different kinds of odds.

Fractions

Fractional odds, also called British or traditional odds are very common among bookmakers in Britain and Ireland. A fractional listing of 5/1 would mean that you will win £5 for every £1 that you wager, as well as getting your stake back. To put it another way, it indicates the profit won to the initial wager, meaning that you get your stake (£1) as well as a profit (£5), giving you a total payout of £6. Thus, if you decide to wager £10 at 5/1 and it is a winning bet, then you will receive a payout of £60—£50 profit and your £10 stake.

Decimals

Decimal odds, also known as European or digital odds are common on the European continent, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. Many people find these much easier to work with and get to grips with—the favourites and the underdogs can be seen right away just by looking at the numbers.

The numbers represent the amount that you will win for every £1 that you wager. When it comes to decimal odds, the numbers tell you the total payout, and not the profit. To put it another way, your stake will already be included in the number, making your total payout calculation a lot easier. For example, if you bet £10 on a team to win at 5.00, you will get £50 back, with a profit of £40.

American

American, also known as money line odds, are, as you can probably guess from the name, common in the US. The favourites for an event are indicated by a minus sign and the number indicates how much you have to stake in order to win £100. On the other hand, the underdogs are indicated by a plus sign and the number indicates the amount you will win for every £100 that you stake. In either case, winners will get their initial stake back in addition to the amount that was won. Thus, if Manchester United are -150 to win against Burnley, you need to put £150 to get a £100 profit.

How to Find the Latest Football Betting Odds at Betiton™

There really is nothing more annoying than struggling to find the latest odds that are on offer when you are trying to place a wager on a football event. Thankfully, we know that our players deserve nothing but the very best football sport betting experience, which is why we make sure that it is very easy to find our odds and markets.

All you have to do is click on the football tab that can be found on the left of the page, and then you will see tabs for more than 60 different countries pop up. Click on the one that you are looking for, and then simply scroll through the options available until you come across a selection that appeals to you—it really could not be much easier than that.

What Are Football Betting Tips?

Football betting tips are bits of advice that are given out by tipsters, who are sports betting experts that spend countless hours looking at group and player form to see who it is that is most likely to come out on top in a match. These tipsters will give you their view as to who you should put your money on.

Tipsters will often post their predictions online so that any bettor can read them and make use of their football tips if they wish to do so. Some tipsters will post their predictions online for free, while there are some others who will ask their followers for a small fee so that they can make some money from their tips.

However, while making use of football betting tips is a good idea, we do suggest that you take the time to do some of your own research. Why is it that we recommend this? Well, it is because tipsters are not perfect and can be drastically wrong at times with the predictions that they make, so doing your own research and going with your gut is something that can pay off in the long run.

In addition to this, it is very important to be disciplined when you are making use of our football betting site. Some of the best advice that we can give you is to ensure that you only make bets that you can afford to potentially lose. We suggest that you also create a budget with an amount that you can afford to lose, and that you stop placing wagers when you have spent your budget. Please never try to convince yourself that it is perfectly fine for you to go beyond your budget in order to try to recuperate your losses because this is something that, more often than not, will lead to you losing more money.

You do not need to go searching for a tipster that you can use to try and increase your chances of winning because we offer our very own football predictions right here at Betiton™.

Additional Information

Football Betting FAQs

What is the meaning of handicap in football betting?

Sometimes in a game of football, there will be such a difference in quality that there really is no point in placing a regular wager on one team to win. If you put a bet on the favourite, you will need to put a lot of money in order to make any kind of profit, while if you put a bet on the underdog, you will most likely lose your stake. This is where a handicap option comes in handy as you can give the favourite a disadvantage to improve their odds, or you can give the underdog an advantage to increase your chances of winning.

What is the O/U in football betting?

In football and other types of sports betting, an over/under bet is one where you bet on whether a specific stat for a game will be lower or higher than a pre-agreed value. This type of wager is also called a total bet, and the most common kind of over/under wager that you will come across is the combined score of two teams in a game.

What does a parlay bet mean?

A parlay bet, also known as an accumulator, is one where you make multiple bets on one betting slip, and all the odds are multiplied together to give you the chance to land a very big profit if your wager goes on to be a winning one. The important thing to keep in mind for such a wager is that all of your selections need to be correct in order for you to walk away with a profit. If you choose ten selections and get nine of them right, you will still walk away with nothing, unfortunately.

What is the meaning of 1X2 in football betting?

A 1X2 wager is one where you are simply gambling on the outcome of a particular fixture, and it is also known as match result betting. There are three possible outcomes that you can place a wager on, and these are a home win, draw, and an away win. The 1 represents the home win, the X represents the draw, and the 2 represents an away win. There is a chance of combining two of the three outcomes in what is called a Double Chance wager—you can select 1X, 12, or X2.

What is a cap in football?

In football, a cap is a term that is used to describe how many games a player has played for their national team. The term came from England when players used to receive a physical cap as a souvenir for their involvement in a national game. Nowadays, players do not receive an actual cap, but we still make use of the term.

What does SW mean in football betting?

The abbreviation “SW” means “Score and win”, so what you are basically doing is gambling on the result of the match and that both teams will find the back of the net.

What are the best football betting markets?

There are many different betting markets, 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 bet in football betting?

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?

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 random bet, then it will most likely go on to be a losing one.
