Introduction to sports betting

Jul 19, 2008
Classic betting In the majority of sports betting, one can gamble on 1, x, 2, 1x or x2. It stands for:

1 - gambling on 1, in general, we bet on the victory of the home team or on a player who is simply mentioned as the first in a bet X - it represents indication on a draw in a meeting we bet on 2 - indication on 2 means a course suggested on the guests of a meeting or on a player, a team mentioned as a second in a bet 1x - a course of this indication means that the home team will not lose - they win in the case of a victory or a draw X2 - as above, but we bet that the guests won't lose 12 - such bet stands for the victory of hosts or guests. If we gambled on such betting and there is a draw, we lose.

Bets 1, x, 2, 1x, x2 are met in meetings where a draw is possible, while 1 and 2 are met in bets where one can only win or lose.

(Classic) European handicap Handicap is a form of levelling of courses, especially when players or teams, with varied potential, are facing each other. In football the most common is handicap +1 -1 which means adding the weaker team 1 goal at the start or deduction of one goal the stronger team.

Example Match Liverpool V Manchester UTD +1 1.90 -1 1.95 In an example above, at the start, Liverpool has handicap 1 goal. It means that in the case of betting on Liverpool with handicap, a draw is enough to win, whereas in the case of gambling on MU we need at least a 2 goal victory - 1 goal win will cause our loss.

Sports betting over/under A course under 2,5 means that in a given match one will shoot no more than 2,5 goals. In such bet, one wins when the sum of goals of the final score is smaller than 2,5, for example: 1-1, 1-0, 0-1, 0-0. If in the match one scores more than 2,5 goals, your coupon is written off.

An odd over 2,5 means that in a given match one will shoot more than 2,5 goals. It is a similar situation as in the case of the course under 2,5 but inversely - you win when the sum of goals of the final score is bigger than 2,5, for example: 2-1, 3-0, 2-2, 0-3. If in the match one scores less than 2,5 goals, you lose.

Good luck!
