We’ve got you covered
We’ve been covering football betting on our sites since 2010. We initially set up our first site in the build-up to the 2010 World Cup. The sound of the vuvuzela has long gone but we are still here.
A lot has changed over the years with new markets and offers happening all the time. We’ll keep you up to date with everything football betting here!
Betting On Football
As football is the most popular sport in the UK, it comes as no real surprise that it is the sport that is bet on the most. The way people bet on football continues to evolve, bringing about more markets and features.
The Bet Builder feature is one such feature that has completely changed the way punters are placing their bets. With new markets such as bookings, shots on target and assists, there has never been so much choice on offer.
Popular Football Markets
The most popular football betting market still remains the outright match market. Most football gamblers like to place at least one chunky accumulator on the weekend’s matches from the outright market.
Other popular markets include:
- Both teams to score (yes/no)
- Correct score
- Player to score
- Goals market (over 1.5, under 3.5 etc.)
- Player bookings
- shots on target
- Player to assist
Football Betting In-Play
Another area that has seen a lot of focus over the past few years in regards to football betting is the in-play experience.
There are just as many markets now available when the action is unfolding as there are beforehand.
Most reputable bookmakers provide visual graphics to reflect what is happening on the pitch. Some matches are also covered by a live stream, where license conditions permit the bookmaker to do so.
Live stats are spewed out and are constantly being updated, giving customers the ability to weigh up how the game is being played to help with their in-play betting choices.
Football Betting Continuing To Evolve
As the beautiful game of football continues to adapt, so does the betting scene. One perfect recent example would be the introduction of VAR.
We have already seen certain bookmakers offering up special VAR markets for customers to bet on. Punters can now bet on elements such as a goal being disallowed by VAR or a penalty being overturned by VAR.
This keeps the world of football betting interesting for us and makes us excited as to what new features and markets the future holds.
