Explaining different types of soccer bets with tips on how to use them

Published on: 10 May 2022

Many rookie bettors appear perplexed at the start of their betting journey as to what type of wager they should put based on their match expectations. With the development of internet betting platforms, there are many more soccer bet types today at bet way than there were in the twentieth century. Fortunately for you, we've compiled some of the most popular bet types and attempted to simplify their betting works for you, as well as included when any of them are more useful. You are better off generating your own conclusions based on your wide knowledge.

Over & Under Bet

You have a chance of winning with this type of soccer bet, albeit the odds are not particularly favorable. With the under and over bets, punters are simply given two possible outcomes to pick from, such as the number of goals scored, the number of free kicks, etc. For instance, you could choose to go with under 6 goals scored.

Outright Bet

This is a long bet that should be kept for at least one season, and it requires a patient punter who is willing to stake and wait. This wager allows you to choose which teams will finish first, second, third, fourth, and fifth during a given season. If one of your predictions is right, the percentage of the expected wins is calculated based on the odds.


An accumulator bet, unlike a combination bet, is made up of numerous wagers on a punter's chosen picks, and it will lose if one of them is lost. Because of the multiplied odds, you can win a lot of money with this type of bet, but you also risk losing your entire amount if you lose only one time.

Goal Scorer

Goal Scorer

This is another simple stake. You only need to guess who will score the first goal (most of the time). Most online betting companies will provide you with a range of goal scorers and strikers from which to choose.

Draw No Bet

If the match concludes in a draw with no winner, you will receive your entire stake back. Draw no bet is more of a safety net for bettors who want to reduce their risk. This is a two-way market; if the side you selected wins, you will receive a payout; if the game ends in a tie, your bet will be returned in full.

Correct Score

A punter is given an opportunity to predict the match's final score. Given the huge variety of possible outcomes, such as 2-1, 4-5, it is difficult to predict what exact score will occur.

Double Chance Bet

Double Chance Bet

The double chance bet allows you to gamble on two different outcomes. For example, in a match, you can choose between two accurate probable outcomes rather than three, such as picking your favorite team to win or draw.


There are more bets you can look into, but those are the most basic bet types that every newbie should be familiar with.
