How long before people will be betting again on our Premier League games?

Like shopping, dating and trying to deal with public services, betting has increasingly become an online activity. Salut! Sunderland‘s Monsieur Salut naturally advises against anything other than safe, affordable flutters but has been known to dabble a little in his time – pools, first to score, match scorelines and so on – and would very much have liked to have been that punter who stuck money on Leicester for the Premier League at 5,000-to-one.

Here, someone in the know explains how it works –  but would he recommend a bet on Sunderland for promotion? …

Let’s go over the different bet types you can indulge in the Premier league.

Correct score bets

Considered the most popular of all football bet types, this one is about predicting the correct score of a football match. The offered odds are normally higher than what you might get while betting on the potential winner of the game. Getting the score correct is also harder than guessing the winner, the reason why the pay outs are comparatively greater.

No bet draw

This is the bet type you must choose if you want to play safe and increase your chances of winning a football bet. The offered odds are much lower compared to the kinds offered for correct score bets, however, you are returned your original bet amount if the game ends in a draw.

 

Both teams to score

This bet type has gained a lot of popularity over the past few years and is often used along with promotions like matched and/or welcome deposit bonuses by the online bookmakers. Combined with such offers, Both Teams to Score bets can serve as an excellent strategy to get the better of the bookies. The last few EPL seasons have seen the teams becoming more and more attacking in their playing style. This has greatly increased the relevance of Both Teams to Score bet type.

Real-time football bets

A large number of people place their football bets through mobile apps these days and often indulge in real-time or live football betting. Seeing how players are actually performing on the field gives you a major edge in terms of predicting the results/scores. Many gambling companies even offer their clients a chance to cash out whenever they want. So in case you see your team being ahead in the match, but the opposition showing signs of improvement as well, you could cash out and that moment and avoid losing any money (if your team goes on to draw or lose the match).

 

Football accumulators

These type of football bets pay out the highest of all bet types. Accumulators work by predicting the results of multiple football matches simultaneously. In case all the results included in an accumulator come out in your favour, you could win a huge fortune for yourself. In fact, many people have won hundreds of thousands of pounds/dollars through accumulator bets.
