Football odds reflect the probability of a specific outcome. The odds displayed by bookmakers are not always correct, as probability estimations can change over time.
There are many types of odds in the game of football including moneyline, point spread, totals (over/under) and prop bets. In addition, football odds are also available in decimal and fractional formats.
How to Bet on Football
To make a bet, first choose your betting type and then select your odds format. The default settings are American, but you can select decimal or fractional to match your betting style.
Then place your bet on the team you think will win the game, or bet against the underdog in order to cover a point spread. The odds for the favored team will be listed with a minus and a number, while those for the underdog will be listed with a plus and a number.
The odds for the favored team can be adjusted in the build-up to a game by sharp bettors, and in play they will change as goals are scored, red cards are given or substitutions are made. Injuries and rested players are also factors that can influence the odds of a particular game. Public sentiment can also affect the odds of a game, with the amount of money that is bet on a particular outcome changing the price. Saturday football
