New to Sports Betting? Here are some terminologies and definitions to get you started.

Half Time/Full Time

Here you bet on the score at half time and the score at the end of the match

Double Chance

With this bet, you win the same amount of money whether a team wins or draws

Half Time Result (HTR)

You place a win, lose or draw bet that is based solely on the score at half time

Draw No Bet (DNB)

You bet on a team to win and if the match ends in a draw you get your stake back

First Team to Score

Here you bet on which team will score first in a match

Correct Score

Here you predict the score at the end of normal time

Asian Handicap

Asian Handicap bets are placed on either the favourite team to overcome a handicap or the opposing team receiving a handicap on top of their actual score.

Here is an example: Team A is favoured to Beat Team B so Team B is given a +1 goal handicap. This means you can bet Team B +1 AH and if they either win the match or draw, you will win your bet. If Team B loses by one goal your stake is returned. If Team B loses by 2 or more goals, then you lose your bet.

On the other hand, you can also bet on Team A to beat the handicap. If you place a Team A -1 AH bet and Team A wins the match by 2 or more goals, you win the bet. If they win by 1 goal your stake is returned. If they draw or lose you lose your bet

Over/Under

This type of betting is gaining in popularity around the world. The most common form of this type of betting involves the final score of a matching this case, the bookmaker will offer odds for different scoring outcomes. For example, if you think the match will end with over 2.5 goals the bookmaker might offer 1.89 odds for that occurring. If you think the score will be under 2.5 goals, the odds may be 1.70.

 

Here is another example of what would occur if you are betting for the score to be over 2.5 goals:

0 goals scored = LOSS

1 goals scored = LOSS

2 goals scored = LOSS

3+ goals scored = WIN

 

If you were to bet on whether the score would be under or over 2 goals, then the draw would become a possible outcome. With a reimbursed bet if you bet on the final score being over 2 goals and only two goals were scored then your bet would be reimbursed, or returned, to you.

Here are possible outcomes with an over 2 goals bet:

0 goals scored = LOSS

1 goals scored = LOSS

2 goals scored = DRAW

3+ goals scored = WIN

3-Way Betting (1X2)

With 3-Way betting you bet on the outcome of a match. You can bet on a team to win, lose or draw in soccer.

So, if you bet on Team A to win and they do win the match, you win your bet. Likewise, if you bet on Team A to lose or draw and they do, you also win the match.

This is probably the most traditional form of betting. It is very straightforward

Both Teams to Score Yes/No

This bet is gaining in popularity around the world. Basically, this bet is exactly as it sounds – you either bet that both teams will score in a match or you bet that both teams will not score in the match.

This type of bet is generally considered to be a 50/50 bet meaning odds are pretty much equal for both outcomes. Odds are often 10/11 for both yes and no. If a match involves two attack minded teams the odds for yes may go to somewhere around 4/6.
