New Football Betting Markets to try in 2020
As a football gambler, you should always be looking to evolve and improve your approach to betting. Here are some new markets you should look at in 2020
As a football gambler, you should always be looking to evolve and improve your approach to betting. Those who struggle are the people who do not move with the times and go onto new things.
Of course, not everything new will work for everyone. But there is no harm in trying and this is especially the case when it comes to betting markets.
We all favour different ways of betting, but unless you try something new, you won’t know if you like it and if you can make a profit on it. The choice from bookmakers regarding markets has never been as strong as it is now, so it seems only fair to use whatever is on offer.
If you are looking for new ways to bet then here are three new football betting markets you can try out in 2020.
Many people will tell you that bookmaker special bets are only there because they think they will get beat. Some of this is true, but of course, the bookmakers are not always right. Big games involving high quality teams such as Champions League finals can go either way, bookmakers won’t get them all right.
The volume of special bets we are seeing from bookmakers has never been as high, and there will be regular winners in there if you can find them.
When using these it is best to try and get an idea of what you want to back before looking for specials. This way you are not completely betting on everything the bookmaker wants you to.
Many bookies offer these bets to their players and will focus them around the big games that are live on TV across a weekend usually. Reading football bookmaker reviews online will give you information about the bookmakers who do provide this service to players.
The bets often have enhanced prices available on them, giving you a potentially bigger win.
First goalscorer betting is very popular with punters, especially on live TV games from big leagues such as the Premier League. There are many people who will bet on a player to score first, some even combine it with the correct score for even bigger odds.
However, getting these right is not an easy task, even if you are betting on a first goal scorer who is a leading striker.
If you are looking to win more in 2020 then you should be looking to scale down your bets and give yourself a better chance of winning. To do this with first goal scorers, you can use the anytime goalscorer market instead.
The odds are shorter, of course, but the chances of winning greatly improve. We have all been in a situation where the player we have backed to score first has scored at a different time in the game.
Match Result +
This is the opposite of that above, this is for people who want to increase the odds of winning by adding in a new element to their bet. This covers many markets too, match result + can be any of the following:
- Match winner + BTTS
- Match winner + over/under 2.5 goals
- Match winner to nil (to win and keep a clean sheet)
These will all give you a bigger price than what you would get on the team to win. The chances decrease, because you need the team to do more than just win the game, but if you are happy to take the risk in search of bigger odds, this is how to do it.
If you are looking for 2020 to be the year you refine your betting and move to the next level then the betting markets listed above can help you do that.
