In most cases, there is a referee at the centre of the pitch that officiates the game and he is usually assisted by two linesmen.

Depending on the football league, the sport is played in two halves and each half usually has a duration of 45 minutes.

The goal of the sports game is to score the highest number of goals before both halves of the game are exhausted. Whichever team has the highest goals is the team that wins the game.

What is a football tip?

Before we start explaining the different tips in football, lets first explain what a football tip is. In simple terms, football tip is simply a bet suggestion of what is likely going to be a better outcome or better choice of for players to go for.

To understand this better, let’s consider an example. Assuming there is a football match between Auckland City and Waitakere United, a bookmaker such as Betiton will assign odds of winning to both teams. A third-party or perceived expert can then tell you which team will likely win the game or other outcomes you can bet on. This is referred to as betting tips. In a football event, several outcomes can happen besides a team winning or losing.

The good thing about Betiton is that it allows players to bet on these outcomes, and you can do so from your desktop or mobile devices.

What are the different tips in football?

There are different kinds of tips available in football. Many tipsters and football tip websites allow you to access these tips either for free or by paying some small amounts of money. One of the popular types of football tips offered by these tipsters is the Accumulators Tips. An accumulator in football betting refers to betting on multiple football events with just a single wager.

This means that you can combine two more events together and wager in them as if it were a single bet. In accumulator tips, the goal is to combine all events to form a total odd that is much higher so that when players wager on it, they get a higher possible return. The way accumulator odds are calculated is quite easy. Each football match odd that forms the accumulator is multiplied together to get the accumulator odd. The higher the number of events, the higher the odds become.

To get a better understanding of how accumulator odds are calculated, consider this example. If you choose a team to win match A with odds 1.40 and another team to win match B with odds 2.00, then the total accumulator odds becomes 1.4 x 2.00 = 2.8 odds. Another similar football tips related to accumulators is the Mega Odds Accumulators.

The offers a much higher accumulator odds than what is given in the regular accumulator tips. As a New Zealand player, you will find it each to bet on multiple football events at the same time on Betiton. Once you select your predicted outcomes, it will be reflected on the bet-slip which is at the right side of the screen.

You will also be able to remove events from the bet-slip before you wager money on it. Additionally, you have the option to change the way the odds of the event are displayed. You can display the odds either in decimal to fractional format.

Another common football betting tips provided by tipsters is the Daily Double tips. This type of tips are provided daily and it always comes with a total odds of 2.00. In some cases, it may be part of a rollover strategy or bankroll builder where the returns are staked each day on the Daily Double tips until the rollover duration expires.

One thing you need to be aware of is that the Daily Double tips can either be for a single football match or accumulated football events. However, the total odds are usually 2.00. Daily Treble Bets Tips is another football betting tips that you can find quite useful. It usually consists of three different bets that the tipsters have selected after considering statistics.

In this tip, the return from the first bet is used for the second bet and the same also applies to the third bet. Other popular football betting tips are correct score tips and both teams to score tips.
