Beginner's Guide To Betting On Football

The great news for weekend punters is that there’s never been more choice when it comes to the bookmakers. There are more bookies entering the market than ever before; and that can only be a good thing. This wealth of options means that you can get the very best from your football betting – and we’re here to steer you onto the right path if you’re just beginning your journey.


Bonus Bonanza
If you're completely new to betting on football then you may not know that the vast majority of bookmakers have developed a suite of welcome offers and promotions to entice you in. These can be confusing at times, so refer to our guide to ensure you get the very best value when signing up for a new account.


Bet on the Move
Technology, what a beautiful thing it is! Thanks to the latest smartphone and tablet devices, many of us can now bet on the move; whether we're on the bus, being dragged around the shops by our other halves or even at work (don't let the boss know!), we can place our next wager with ease. Our bookmaker comparisons include app reviews for your peace of mind.


In Play, All Day
In the past few years there has been a wealth of innovations in football betting that have added to the excitement: In-play betting, ‘cash out', bet editing, live streaming and so much more. You'll find out much more about those on the site, and also which bookmakers offer the finest features.


Football Betting: Your Questions Answered

For absolute beginners to football betting, some of the language used by a bookmaker can be a bit of a mind-melter. Getting to grips with the lingo will ultimately help you to make better betting choices; and that is the really fun part.

So here are some commonly asked questions regarding bookies and betting on football:


What is In-Play Betting?

Two of the most popular features that have emerged in football betting in the past few years are in-play betting and Cash Out. The absolute vast majority of bookmakers offer these services; and these help smart punters to gain the edge on the bookie. Firstly, in-play betting is exactly as it sounds: placing your wagers after a match has already kicked off. This can be a sound move as it enables you to analyse the early proceedings in a game; how likely is your selection to land now? The in-play odds available are always changing in accordance with the action, so timing your move is crucial.


What is Cash Out?

Cash Out sounds like madness on the part of the bookies, and if used wisely can net punters plenty of profit. Basically, the bookie will offer you a price to settle your bet prior to the end of the 90 minutes. There are two advantages to ‘cashing out’: firstly, you can consolidate a winning position, e.g. if your bet is up heading into the last ten minutes of the match then you can cash out for a guaranteed win. This is useful if your team has had a player sent off, for example. The second is that you can cut your losses. If your team is 0-2 down at half-time then you can take the cash out sum and at least return some money to your bankroll.


Which Bookies Offer Accumulators?

The short answer is all of them! All bookies know the risks of offering accumulators to their customers, but they have to satisfy the law of supply and demand. If you aren’t sure, an accumulator is a multiple bet featuring several legs; so, betting on Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal to all win their matches is considered an ‘acca’.


How Do I Make a Deposit/Withdrawal from my Betting Account?

You can find out more about this in our reviews, but most will accept the most widely-used credit/debit cards (Visa, Switch, MasterCard etc), e-wallet systems (PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and more) plus bank transfers and postal cheques (old school but it still works!).


Which Leagues/Cups Can I Bet On?

The depth of market coverage varies from bookie to bookie (check out our reviews for more details), but needless to say you can bet on all of the top competitions from across Europe, the Americas and parts of Asia. These days, if you want to bet on a specific tournament then the chances are there will be a bookmaker ready to take your wager.
