What Is Point Spread Betting?
Use the calculator below to convert betting odds into any betting odds format. Double chance betting is also a fun bet if you want your team to avoid defeat. Rather than backing them to win and risking losing your stake if it’s a draw, you can bet on your team to win/draw and therefore cover both eventualities. As an alternative to betting on the totals of a game, where you either win or lose, you can also bet on games with .25 or .75 totals, which adds an additional two possible outcomes.
It lets you see how a team has performed in previous matches against all the other teams in the league. This allows you to see how they’ve played against teams similar to the one they’re about to face. It could be, for example, that a team usually plays attacking football, scoring and conceding lots of goals, and you think they’re a perfect fit for an over 1.5 goals pick. However, with the league table, you could see that against the top teams, they prefer to keep it tight, and keep more clean sheets, while also scoring a lot fewer goals.
We have put together a brief guide below, but please feel free to click on the relevant page for more information, as well as example bets on the selected markets. That value may be regarded as the relative probability the event will happen, expressed as a fraction , or a multiple of the likelihood that the event will not happen. Odds are particularly useful in problems of sequential decision making, as for instance in problems of how to stop on a last specific event which is solved by the odds algorithm.
There are also options for a score draw and the game to end goalless. This is just a sample of the numerous bets for halves that are available online. At the top bookies in the country you will find all top end-result markets for either half, such as correct score, BTTS, handicaps and totals. Some bookies apply the Each Way rules to their First Goalscorer bets, so you can get some consolation if your man fails to break the deadlock, but scores later in the game. If you are in more adventurous mood you can try ‘To score two or more’ or ‘To score three or more’.
Our form stats show goals scored and conceded as well as clean sheets kept. To toggle between home/away and overall stats use the “overall” button. Our goals stats work in the same way across our goals markets (0.5, 1.5, 2.5 etc). The light green colour coding always represents the over and the dark blue shows the under.
Of course, for this market that means that over 1.5 goals is represented by the light green colour, and under 1.5 goals by the darker colour. All betting odds are correct at time of publishing and are subject to change. If you think there is a greater than 40% chance of the outcome happening then you have found yourself a value bet. Hard work and good analysis will help you show a good return on your investment. For example, if you can place 5 bets of £20 at 6/4 (2.50) on over 1.5 goals, you will have invested £100. That means if on average three out of every five bets wins, you will get back £150 for your £100 investment.
