Soccer betting odds - a guide
A popular and simple option is to look at odds for one game. Everton might have odds of $1.65 on a simple 'win' bet against Blackburn at $5.00. Everton are the favourites.
Various other markets
Odds are also offered on margins and scores. For example, odds of $7.00 might be offered on a 1-0 Everton win, and that is the scoreline with the shortest odds. Odds for many scorelines are possible right out to $350 for a 5-0 Blackburn win.
Other odds can be offered on half-time scores, the first player to score, the time of the first goal, first corner, first free kick, sendings off, and so on.
Futures betting is extremely popular with punters. Bet on a team to win the competition even before its started, bet on a team you think will get relegated or bet on a team to finish in the top four. These are just some of the Futures markets available with TAB Sportsbet. We also offer individual futures markets too, such as Leading Goalscorer.
Live betting, via your local TAB outlet or on 133 390, is becoming increasingly popular in soccer betting, even if live betting on European games does require an early start in the morning for Australian punters. After a game has begun, odds will then change as the match progresses as one team takes the advantage. Live odds ensure the bettor can still enjoy a wager even while the action is taking place in front of them.
