If you're new to the world of football betting and feeling overwhelmed, don't worry! Paddy Power is here to help you understand the basics and get started. From grasping how odds work to exploring different types of football bets, we've got you covered.

Betting on Football: The Basics

Football Betting Guide

Betting on football is incredibly popular, and it's also straightforward. To place a football bet, you first need to create a Paddy Power account. Once you've activated your profile, passed the necessary ID checks, and made a deposit, head over to the sportsbook.

On the Paddy Power website or app, navigate to the football section. You'll find a wide range of competitions to choose from, including live betting options and exciting bet boosts. Take your time exploring the odds and select an outcome that catches your eye.

For example, you might want to bet on Denmark Women winning against China in an international game. Click on Denmark's match odds, enter your stake in the bet slip, review your potential profit, and hit "Place Bet" when you're satisfied with your wager.

And that's it! You've successfully placed a bet on football. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the game!

Exploring Football Betting Types

How to Bet on Football

Football betting offers a wide variety of options to keep things exciting. While there are countless betting markets available, let's focus on the five core ones that dominate any league:

  • Match Betting: Wager on the result of a game by betting on a home win (1), draw (X), or away win (2).
  • Correct Score: Predict the exact score in a match for potentially higher payouts and better odds than match bets.
  • First/Last Goalscorer: Bet on who will score the first/last goal in a match or for one of the teams.
  • Over/Unders: Bet on the total number of goals or corners in a game, choosing to bet over or under a specific line.
  • Handicaps: Level the playing field by giving one team a boost or disadvantage to balance the odds.

Betting Tips for Football Beginners

While there are plenty of football tipsters out there, the true joy of betting lies in your own intuition and knowledge. Here are some smart football bets to consider if you're new to the sport:

  • Back the Home Team: When in doubt, the home team is often a reliable option. In the Premier League, the home team wins 47% of the time.
  • Start with Double Chance: Reduce your chances of losing by betting on two of the three possible outcomes in a match.
  • Rely on Strikers: Strikers often play a crucial role in goal scoring, making them a good choice for first goalscorer bets.

Football Betting Tips for Success

While our tipsters handle the day-to-day stuff, here are some good habits to develop when planning your football bets:

  • Look at Form Outside of Derbies: When there's no local pride at stake, analyze the form of both teams to make a more informed decision.
  • Keep It Simple: Start with simple bets like correct score and match winner until you get a feel for the sportsbook.
  • Set a Budget: Avoid going overboard by setting a daily, weekly, or monthly bet budget. This ensures you have fun without risking it all on a single bet.
  • Live Stream Games: Watch games in real time and make well-timed bets by utilizing Paddy Power's live stream feature.
