Football is the most watched and enjoyed sport on the globe. Not only tens of thousands go to every game, but billions watch the major events on television or internet. Only a small percentage of those people actually place bets on the outcome of the games even though they might have all the information needed to make a few winning bets.Most fans will have at least one team that they adore and follow all their life but football betting actually allows for some excitement to games with teams you normally have no affiliation with. If your team is not doing so well you can even place a bet on the opposition so that when your team wins your heart is happy and if they lose your wallet will jump for joy.Online betting makes it possible to bet on nearly every football match on the planet. An account is easily set up and it will be easy to place a bet on any match you want. This new account will give you the option to bet anywhere and anytime on a game of your liking.A Match bet is the most common time of bet on a football match. It is simply deciding if a match will result in a win for the home team, a win for the away team or if the match will result in a draw. On most coupons it will be marked as a 1 for home, 2 for away and a 3 or X for a draw.Handicap betting follows the same rules as Match betting except for the fact that one team starts with a goal lead. The outcome of the match can still be a home win, a draw or an away victory, but the odds are normally a little better as there is already a “goal scored” in this match.
