In a recent episode of the bettingexpert academy, bettingexpert host Joe Ryan broke down the numerous bet types available.
Beginning with the commonly used head-to-head,in-play betting types and cash out features, Ryan used an example of a theoretical Liverpool v Aston Villa football match to guide viewers through the process of in-play betting and cash outs.
“Say Liverpool are playing at home to Aston Villa and they go behind early to an early fluke goal,” he said. “Clearly since this was against the run of play Liverpool have enough time and enough talent to come back and win. You would get much better odds in-play than you would have done before the game.
“When you choose a bookmaker to bet with in-play, you should consider how their live-markets are for the given sport you are interested in betting on. Don’t choose a bookmaker who has fewer markets, for example on football, if that is the sport you want to bet on live.”
Moving on to discuss the more complicated world of handicap betting, Ryan explained how this can give punters greater opportunities when betting on underdogs, using the example of a clash between 2020/21 UEFA Champions League runners-up Manchester City and mid-table Premier League club Burnley FC as an example.
Everybody thinks that City will win nine out of 10 of these meetings, and the odds are therefore very low on City to win the game,” but with a handicap of one goal, City become less of a favourite to win, because in our bet, Burnley start with a goal before the matches even kicked off.
“Let’s say you think Burnley have a chance to nick a draw from the match, who can potentially also win, you’d find the bet that says Burnley plus one, indicating that they start with a goal, and then put your money on Burnley to win.
“Now this means that if the match ends in a draw, Burnley will still win that bet because they started with a goal advantage, and of course if they win the match outright, your bet will be a winner.”
Other topics covered included the different types of handicap available – in particular Asian handicap betting, which can offer more alternatives to bettors – as well as Each Way betting, which would have been a popular talking point for bettingexpert’s horse racing enthusiast followers.
The video follows on from bettingexpert’s popular coverage of the UEFA Euro 2020 Championship via The Big Stage show, which saw former England left-back Wayne Bridge and YouTuber/football fanatic Rory Jennings share predictions for each game with Ryan and discuss the general history and significance of the tournament.
In the last episode of The Big Stage, the trio discussed England’s tense final defeat at the hands of Italy, before offering their opinions on the winning teams in different top-flight European leagues, including the Premier League, Bundesliga, LaLiga and Serie A.
