Sports spread betting. Spread betting types in football[ 04.10.16 ]
In this article, we will talk about how to apply a spread betting strategy in football betting. After analyzing the detailed examples below, you will get the general idea of how sports spread betting works.
This market is characterized by one team dominating over the other. In other words, it is a game played between the strong favorite and the underdog. A bookmaker predicts by how many goals the favorite will beat the outsider. Here is an example of a spread: 0.1-0.3.
Suppose, the favorite wins the match with the score 4-1. In this case, supremacy is: 4 - 1 = 3 goals. If the favorite loses with the score 0-1, the underdog’s supremacy is: 0 - 1 = -1. As you can see, everything depends on who won the match.
This market is based on the total number of goals scored by both teams during the match. Here you don’t need to identify the underdog and the favorite or predict the winner. For total goals market, even a draw is a good outcome. Spread may come as decimal numbers, such as 2.7-3.0.
How many cards will the judge show during the match? Many bookmakers use the following system:
- 10 points for a yellow card (no more than one card for one player).
- 25 points for a red card.
- If a player gets one yellow card and then another one (i.e. a red card as a total), he is assigned 10 + 25 = 35 points.
- In the total bookings market, a spread usually varies from 44 to 48 points.
Spread is determined by the total number of corner kicks made by both teams during the match. Bookmakers usually set the spread at 10-11 corners.
In this case the 1st time corners are multiplied by the 2nd time corners.
Take, the 1st time featured 5 corners and the 2nd time had 7 corners. The result is: 5 х 7 = 35. Spread usually ranges from 30 to 33.
On many betting sites, you can test your luck in win index betting. But what is win index and how is it calculated? Every bookmakers uses their own system of assigning points for victory, loss, and draw. For example, a team gets 25 points for winning the game, 10 points for drawing the game, and 0 points for losing.
As the game is played between two teams, this sports spread betting type can be applied to both of the teams. But the spread set for the favorite differs from the one set for the underdog. Take a match between the Celtic and the St. Mirren. For the Celtic, the spread is set at 19.5-21, while the St. Mirren has the spread of 2.5-4.
