Betting on sports certainly goes beyond just predicting the winner or loser of a particular event. A lot more options are available to punters, therefore, understanding the meaning of these different betting options is a must if you want to succeed at betting on football, basketball, tennis and more.
In this article you will learn the meaning of betting options provided by CediBet and other bookmakers . Here we go.
This betting option, also known as 1X2 is arguably the most popular option available. There are three possible outcomes for this option namely Home team to win (1), Away team to win (2) and Draw(X).
With this option, you can choose two of the three possible outcomes of a match. That is,
This bet type has only two outcomes, either a win for the home team or the away team thus eliminating the possibility of a draw. You will receive your stake amount back if the match ends in a draw.
The Under/Over option allows you to bet on the total number of goals to be scored in the match and the bet will win only if the number of goals scored in the match is less or more than a set common limit.
So, for an example if the set limit selected is Under 2.5 or Over 2.5, the bet will win only if the total goals is less than three or more than three respectively.
Instead of betting on the total number of goals to be scored by both teams, you can decide to bet on the total goals scored by either the home or away team.
So, for an example if the set limit selected is Under 1.5 or Over 1.5 for the home side, the bet will win only if the home team scores less than two goals or more than two goals respectively.
This betting option has two possible outcomes, Yes or No. Yes, occurs if and only if both competing teams score a goal in the match whiles No occurs if both teams fail to score a goal or only one team scores a goal.
A half time/full time (HT/FT) bet option only wins if you can correctly predict the outcome of both the first half and full time of the match. The options to choose from are Home/Home, Draw/Home, Home/Draw, Draw/Draw, Home/Away, Away/Home, Away/Draw, Draw-Away, Away/Away.
Handicap basically means one team has been given a virtual lead over the other. Thus, the possible outcomes of the match are reduced from three to two eliminating a draw as an option. The minus (-) symbol is assigned to a team with the handicap disadvantage whiles the plus (+) symbol is allocated to the team with the advantage.
So, for example if you chose a handicap of -1, it means the match starts at a 1:0 score line hence the disadvantaged team i.e., the team you selected must score two or more goals before the bet is won.
With this sports betting option, the bet wins if either the total number of goals scored in the match is an odd number or an even number.
To win with this option, you must successfully predict the exact number of goals to be scored in the match by both teams.
You must successfully predict the precise score line of the match at fulltime or halftime.
In to win to nil betting, the team you are betting on must win the game in addition to keeping a clean sheet. Hence if the opponent scores a goal, the bet is lost.
As the name suggests, the bet is won if you successfully predict either the first team or the last team to score a goal in the match.
