Football Spread Betting Guide

Football Spread Betting

Football Spread Betting is when you bet against the spread in markets such as Supremacy, Total Goals, Bookings, Corners, Team Goal Minutes and Player Goal Minutes.

Spread betting is a different way to bet on the outcomes of events in Football matches. Instead of betting on a binary outcome (your bet wins or it loses), you bet on a range of potential outcomes. In the context of football, instead of betting on a goals over/under single outcome the amount either won or lost is affected by the number of goals scored.

Difference Between Spread Betting and Fixed Odds

Many people prefer spread betting on football over fixed odds because of multiple possible outcomes. This makes the match interesting until the final whistle blows.

This is accomplished by betting against the spread. The Spread is two prices, one price to “buy” and the other price to “sell.” For instance, say 2.3-2.5 was the price for total goals in England v Brazil

England v Brazil Total Goals 2.3-2.5

If you believe it will be a high scoring match, like a 3-2 and the buy price was 2.5 you would buy at 2.5 because you believe that there will be lots of goals in the game.

If there were 5 goals you would win 2.5 times your stake unit.

If there were 1 goal you would lose 1.5 times your stake unit.

If the total goals market was 2.3 goals to sell and you thought the match would be a tight game ending in a low score like 1-0 you would sell at 2.3 because you believe that there won’t be many goals in the game.

If the match ended 0-0 you would win 2.3 times your stake unit. If there were say 4 goals you would lose 1.7 times your stake unit
