Still unsure about betting? With us you can find out everything you need to know about this world.
The odds are the odds offered by the best bookmakers for each team in a match. Therefore, the odds reflect the odds that each team will have on a given event.
For example, if the odds on team A for a match are 2.00 and you place a $10 bet, should your sports bet win, you will win $10.
But would not be $ 20? No: in this case, the Odd 1.00 is your money, as well as everything that comes before the 1 is your possible return, as 1.70, 1.80, 1.90, among other items. Another name used for the term Odd is also odds.
Favourite – SuperFavourite
This is a term used to define the team that is most likely to win a match. The more favored a team is, the lower the Odd will be and therefore the lower your financial return by betting on it.
Here we are talking about a team that is the opposite of the favorite, in other words, it is a team considered too weak to beat a certain opponent. Therefore, the underdog has the highest odds within the event, that is, if compared to the draw. So, if you bet on this team and win, the gain is usually 10x bigger than the money invested.
Picks are the guesses made by a person who is focused on helping bettors win their sports bets.
The different types of football bets
This is a more common betting segment among punters. With this, you simply need to match who will win the betting event, or match a draw. Each of the outcomes offers a different odd, according to the odds of each result. Thus, the bettor does not need to worry about goal margin or the final score, unless he chooses a winner or draw.
Double chance is a betting mode that you can place a sports bet and win it with two possible outcomes.
A good example is a 1x or x2, which is nothing more than a bet on 1) the home team wins or a draw or 2) the match ends in a draw or the away team wins. Finally, there is also the option that you can bet on either team winning and – not drawing.
Therefore, you will win when one of these outcomes occurs. Because this is a much less risky bet, as you have two chances to win, the odds are small, which will give you less profit.
Tie nullifies bet
Draw No Bet is also known as DNB – Draw No Bet. Here you will pick a winner in the match.
Suppose you choose for the home team to win, however, there is an uncertainty, because the other team may be able to snatch a draw, since they cannot lose the match even if they are inferior. Therefore, it is from this DNB that you can have the security in your bet. By betting here the team you bet on can win and you win your bet, and if it draws you have your bet returned.
This is a term used to define bets where some positive or negative margins are added in order to balance out the odds. It is certainly one of the most difficult terms and sports betting for beginners, however, it can be very attractive when performed in the right way.
Let’s take a clearer example:
- Let’s suppose a match between Flamengo and some team from Serie C. When analyzing the game and understand the two teams, the strength of the cast of Flamengo and its attack, you consider that the cariocas will win by goal. When you look at the odds on Moneyline, you are discouraged because it is only 1.07 for Flamengo to win the match, leaving the idea of betting there almost impossible.
With the handicap this does not happen. There, you will find, for example, a bet of AH -2 for Flamengo to win. What does this mean? It means that if Flamengo wins the match by two goals difference you will have your bet returned.
Of course, if Flamengo only win by one goal difference, your bet is lost. This is just an example, where you will not only get this number, but also other options.
