Most popular football events

  1. FIFA World Cup
  2. UEFA European Championship
  3. Premier League

The FIFA World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world, beating out both the Olympics in second and the Rugby World Cup in third. This event takes place once every four years, with the next one coming around in 2022. This next event is to be held in Qatar, which is a first for the event, being held entirely on the Asian continent. In the years running up to the event, teams from countries around the world compete in a series of different qualifying events – these are from the different regions of the world – in order to see which ones will make it to the World Cup itself. Once all the teams – 32 in total – have been finalised, the tournament begins in earnest, gradually whittling down the number.

The second largest football tournament is the UEFA European Championship. This event, like the World Cup, also takes place every four years, but in order not to clash with the other event, this one takes place in the years in the middle. This just means that every two years, players in the UK get treated to an epic football event, far surpassing darts in its excitement and energy. This event takes the top teams in Europe and, in similar fashion to the world cup, pits these teams against one another until the teams are gradually knocked out. Teams also have to go through qualifying rounds in order to even make it to the final event. Winners of this event shows which are the stronger teams for the upcoming World Cup.

The final top football event in the UK is one that rivals even the Grand National betting – a very popular steeplechase in the country. This last event is also surprisingly popular outside the UK despite being the English Premier League. This league is the top division for clubs located in the UK and is based on a relegation and promotion system. These teams will all play a double round robin throughout the duration of the event so that each team will play each other twice – once away and once at home to make use of that home advantage. Points are scored on number of goals, among other things, to see which of the teams will rank at the top of the table.

Odds an tips for football betting

When diving into the world of sports betting (and yes, that includes Eurovision betting), it’s important you know where to find tips and where the best odds are.

Odds for football

When you are looking to bet on football, the first thing you need to understand is the odds. These are the numbers that explain how likely it is for an event to happen (whether the team will win, lose or draw) as well as showing you how much you will get paid out if you win. Odds are often shown in fractions in the UK market, though if you prefer decimals or American odds, you can change this at Betiton. One thing to remember, though, when looking at odds is to bet odds greater in value than those that are very low. This is because low odds, while being more likely to happen, will also pay out a lot less.

For instance, 2/1 odds means that the team is most likely favourites to win. Odds of 100/1 go too far the other way, as the likelihood of that team winning is incredibly slim – the bookies think they’re clear outsiders. 

Tips and tipsters for football

Tipsters are very useful if you’re new to the football betting world, as they can give you useful football tips to help you make your judgments on what team to bet on. Tipsters spend a lot of time looking at player and team form to see who is likely to win or score in a head to head. They will usually post their predictions so that other players can see them and use them if they wish. Tipsters will also take the time to look around the internet, checking out various sports books to find good value odds. These value odds will also be suggested to players so that they can potentially make a good profit on a single bet if they choose to follow this advice.

However, while taking tips can be a good idea at the start, we do recommend that you continue with your own research as well. This is because the tipsters do not often catch everything. Sometimes going with your gut feeling can actually pay off. However, we do advise against simply picking a team to win just because they are your favourite. This is one way that will possibly see you getting more losses than wins in the long run, so check out team form yourself too. It’s also important to be disciplined with your betting, making sure to only take bets that you can afford when playing online.
