How to Bet on Trusted Soccer Betting – Football betting is one of the games that is now increasingly known and played by people to be able to get a lot of profits. With the 2010 FIFA World Cup in front of us, it is time to discuss how to bet on football. Football is considered the most popular sporting event in the world; however, in the United States it’s not even in the top four. That being said, it is gaining popularity every year both in views and with sportsbooks.
Online sportsbooks are expecting record-setting bets for the 2010 FIFA World Cup with many first-time soccer bettors taking part. However, there are some rules to be aware of before placing a soccer bet.
Three Way Money Line
Just like betting on baseball or hockey, betting on the money line is the most popular way to bet on football; However, there is one major difference. Whereas in other sports, betting on the money line is basically just betting on the team to win the match outright, in soccer the bettor also has the option to bet on a draw (draw). So money line soccer bettors have three options: bet Team A to win the game, bet Team B to win the game, bet Team A and Team B to draw.
Using the odds for the 2010 FIFA World Cup match between England and the United States, let’s see how it works.
Opportunity currently has odds as:
United States +650
If you are going to bet on the favored England, for every $238 you bet you will win $100; as long as England win after regulation. Please pay attention to the words “after regulation” which is another unique rule with soccer betting which we will discuss in a moment.

Now, if you back an underdog US team, you will win $650 for every $100 wagered as long as America wins after the rules.
Lastly, considering that so many football matches end in a draw, bookies also provide a draw option. In this case, the bettor will win $210 for every $100 wagered if the game is tied at the end of the rules.
While it looks simple enough, it can be tricky for beginners because of the “end of the rule” rules. A football match usually lasts 90 minutes of play in addition to “overtime”. For the three-way money lines mentioned above, they are scored after 90 minutes + extra time played. So any goals in extra time (overtime) or on penalties will not count in the three-way money line.
For example, if Brazil and Spain meet in the World Cup Final and draw 2-2 at the end of rules and extra time, bettors who bet on Brazil or Spain will lose their bet while those who bet on a draw will win their bet. Anything that happens in extra time and/or penalty shootouts will not be relevant to this bet.…
