Soccer Betting Strategies

The strategies soccer betting companies employ is known as the “point spread”, “money line”, “over/under” “parlay” and “proposition” soccer bet. Point spread method is commonly used. Take a scenario where two soccer teams having a match: let’s say Arsenal playing against LA Galaxy. It is important to note that most of the time, one of the teams is usually considered to be the favourites. If you and I were to pick our bet for a winning team, majority will pick Arsenal simply because they are the favourite. However betting company introduces what is called point spread which in a way handicaps the favourite team for betting reasons so as to give both teams’ equal chances. Bookies might want to introduce a winning margin for example 3-0, 4-0 for a bettor who decide to bets on Arsenal to win, while on the other hand Bookies could simply place win for LA Galaxy. If the favourite team win but unable to beat the underdogs by the margin given, an individual who bets on Arsenal will lose the bet. If LA Galaxy wins then a bettor will make a fortune on the bet. The point spread method makes betting equally balanced, eye-catching and better security.

Going with the money line, the strategy used is called odds. A bettor is expected to pick the winner. It is the amount of money a bettor stands to win for $100 bet or how much a bettor bets to win $100. The best way to understand the money line strategy is to use an illustration. Odds are usually high when underdogs and playing away from home.

Seattle Sounders: +150

Manchester United: -160

Manchester United is the preferred team, as indicated -160 while Seattle Sounders are supposedly underdogs, signified with +150. What these simply mean is that bettors who decide to go for Manchester United: the favourite will have to take a risk of $160 to win $100 while those who decide to bet on the underdogs will bet $100 to win $150. The odds increase depending on the points you choose.
