Football

Head to Head
In Football, the Head to Head option gives you the chance to predict which of the three possible outcomes will occur – Home Team win, Away Team win or a Draw.

Note: Match betting is conducted according to Normal Time, including injury time, unless otherwise stated.  If a match is abandoned, bets will be Void unless a result has already been determined.

Winning Margin              
With the Winning Margin you can not only predict which team will win a particular match, but also the margin of their victory.

The seven selections in Winning Team and Margin are:

Home Team by 3+                          

Home Team by 2                             

Home Team by 1                             

Draw                    

Away Team by 1                              

Away Team by 2                              

Away Team by 3+

This is a very popular bet type as it pays much higher dividends than the Head to Head.

Exact Score
This option offers odds on the exact final score of a particular match.

Note: Exact Score is conducted according to Normal Time, including injury time, unless otherwise stated.  If a match is abandoned, bets will be Void unless a result has already been determined.

Half/Full Time Double
This option allows you to predict the leading team at Half Time and the winning team at the end of the match.

The nine selections within this option are:
Home Team/Home Team            

Home Team/Away Team             

Home Team/Draw          

Away Team/Home Team             

Away Team/Away Team              

Away Team/Draw           

Draw/Home Team          

Draw/Away Team           

Draw/Draw

 

Total Goals
This option allows you to pick how many goals will be scored in the match. Within this option you are offered three different bet types. You have the choice of two numbers within the same bet, the exact number of goals and the Bookies will also provide numerous lines where you can chose to back either Under or Over the line. This gives you more choice as to how to bet on the number of goals you think will be in the match.

For example, if you think there will be 3 goals in a match you can choose to bet on either ‘2 or 3 goals’; ‘Exactly 3 goals’; ‘Over 0.5 goals’, ‘Over  1.5 goals’ or ‘Over 2.5 goals’.

Handicaps
Similar to the Points Start option offered on other sports, the Handicaps option in Football outlines how many goals the Bookies think separate the two teams in a particular match. You can then decide if a team is likely to do better than the Bookies have predicted. The Bookies also provide two other lines to give you more choice

For example, in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, the Bookies predicted the Germany would win by 1-2 goals over Argentina. The line for this match was therefore 1.5 goals. A line of 0.5 and 2.5 were also added as extra choices.

The Handicaps option therefore appeared as:
Germany +0.5

Argentina +0.5

Germany -1.5

Argentina +1.5

Germany -2.5   

Argentina +2.5

Note: the Handicap options includes a half point to eliminate the possibility of a draw and therefore guarantee a payout to Punters.

Punters who thought Germany would win by 3 goals or more could have backed Germany +0.5, Germany -1.5 or Germany -2.5 . Punters who thought Argentina would prevent Germany from winning by 3 or more could have backed Argentina +0.5, Argentina +1.5 or Argentina +2.5. In the end, the final score was Germany 1 Argentina 0.

Germany +0.5, Argentina +1.5 and Argentina +2.5 were therefore paid out as winning selections.
