How to Bet on Premier League Football

Betting is popular with sports fans and football is one of the top sports that punters bet on, particularly during the premier league season and the world cup. For those who are new to betting, knowing where to start can be a challenge.

While visiting a high street bookmaker was once a popular way to make bets on games, many football fans now choose to bet online. This is a fast and convenient way to place bets and there is a vast selection of online sportsbooks.

The first step to premier league betting is finding a reputable sportsbook. Top betting sites have the latest odds and plenty of different options for types of bets that you can place.

They will also have different payment options for making deposits and withdrawals in your online account and will be correctly licensed by the Gambling Commission or other licensing body for their region.

Asking for recommendations from friends and reading online reviews are good ways to find the best sportsbooks. Once you have found a site you would like to use, it’s time to explore the different betting types.

Here are some of the most popular types of bets you can place for football matches and tournaments:

Full time result bet

The full-time result bet is the most popular type of bet that football fans make. In this bet, you predict whether one team will win, the other team will win or if there will be a draw.

For example, in a game between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs, you might predict that Manchester will win. If they do, you will get a pay-out but if Spurs win or there is a draw then you lose.

Football accumulator

In a football accumulator, you play a series of bets on the outcomes of several matches and the aim is to predict all of them correctly. You will get a pay out if you have guessed them all right.

With an accumulator bet it is of course more difficult to win, however accumulator payouts tend to be much bigger. These bets do require some patience as you wait for all the results to come in.

Correct score

Correct score bets can be quite a lot of fun and involve predicting what the home team and aways team’s results. It can sometimes be helpful to know the team’s scoring habits when making your bet.

An example of a winning correct score bet would be; betting a Liverpool v Chelsea match ends 2-1 and the final score equalling Liverpool winning with two goals and Chelsea scoring once.

Total goals

In a total goal bet you usually predict whether the total number of goals scored in the name will be more or less than the number stated. For example, you might bet that there will be more than 2.5 goals. 

You would then lose this bet if zero, one or two goals were scored in the duration of the match. Members Can View Hub Here

First goal scorer

This is a pretty simple bet choice; you are predicting who the first player to score in the match will be. There may also be an option to bet that no goals will be scored.

One thing to note with this type of bet is that different bookmakers will have different policies on own goals, with some counting this and others not counting it. They may also have a policy for substitutions, you may get your money back if your predicted player remains on the subs bench until after the first goal is scored.

Draw no bet

The draw no bet type is similar to the full-time result bet, however there is no option for the draw. Regardless of which team you bet will win, if the game ends in a draw you will get your stake returned to you.

One drawback of this bet type is that the odds on each team winning are reduced, meaning pay-outs are lower than other types of football bets. 

Final thoughts…

These are just some of the most popular types of football bets that fans of the premier league can make, however there are many more you might find on different betting sites. Bets such as score cast or Asian handicap betting are available on selected bookmakers. Join TopSport Here
