Football Betting

Looking for the best place to bet on football competitions such as the Premier League, Champions League and the European Championships? Look no further than the fantastic range of betting markets available at 21.co.uk. Our markets include ante-post betting, including bets such as who will win a tournament, top goalscorers and more! Meanwhile, the other side of our markets are the live betting markets where our players can bet on something to happen in the middle of a game that is currently going on. Let’s say, for example, you’re watching the Old Firm Derby and Scott Brown or Alfredo Morelos have put in two or three dangerous tackles without a card; you can head to our live betting section and place a bet on them getting a yellow card, which in this example looks likely to happen. Live betting is best for bettors who are watching the action, while ante-post fits bettors who are looking to create accumulator bets.

Online Football Betting Markets

21.co.uk has a fantastic range of sports betting markets that our players can choose from, including situations such as goals, cards, corners and more! You can find these markets for hundreds of events worldwide, such as the World Cup in 2022 or the European Championships this summer. You can combine our betting markets using the bet builder section of each game. For example, if you’re looking to bet on England’s European Championship fixture against Scotland on June 18th, you will be able to place bets on the full-time score, winners, whether both teams will score, handicaps, cards, corners and more! Bet builders are some of the best ways to combine low odd bets together to create a single bet with larger odds.

Football Betting Key Terms

Some vital information for players to know is the type of bets available.

Accumulator

Accumulator bets are combinations of four or more single bets that combine to provide players with longer odds and big wins. All single bets must pay out to win.

Ante-post

Betting on something in advance to receive longer odds on markets such as tournament winners.

Asian Handicaps

These provide a goal advantage or disadvantage to players bets; typically, these are +1 or -1.

Bet

Laying money on a prediction of the outcome of a match/event.

Both Teams To Score

The most popular betting market outside your standard team to win bet. Players can bet on both teams to score either in the game or in both halves.

Double bet

Two single selections that are placed as one singular bet. Both odds will be combined to provide the bettor with higher winnings. Wins will only pay out if both selections are victorious.

Double Chance

There’s always a chance for a shock in Football; double chance gives players the chance to bet on the potential of two different outcomes.

Evens bet

An evens bet is a bet that pays out the exact amount that the bettor puts on. Odds are displayed as 1/1 if you’re utilising the fraction system or 2.00 if you’re using the decimal system.

Goalscorer Premier

There is the opportunity to bet on different styles of goalscorer markets. Here you can bet on a player to score two or more goals or the player to score last.

In-play betting

Whenever players look to place a bet in the middle of a match, that is a bet that is placed in-play. All bets that are placed after the match has begun are in-play bets.

Outright bet

Outright bets are wagers placed on whole competitions rather than single matches. For example, bets placed on the Premier League winners in a given season, or the outright winner of the Wimbledon Tennis tournament. These bets can be placed before an event begins, but some bookmakers offer outright bets part-way through certain events or competitions.

Treble bets

A treble bet is the combination of three selections with combined odds. This is one selection short of an accumulator and all three selections of a treble bet must be victorious for bettors to win.

Underdog

The underdog in Football betting is the side that is least favoured to win. This will be the team with the longest odds and highest returns.
