Step-by-step Guide to Betting on Soccer
Keen to get started with your first bet? Here’s a quick step-by-step on how to bet on soccer.
How do I bet on soccer?
Get started by browsing our list of recommended sportsbooks and read our soccer betting guide above. You’ll want to research the teams and competitions you’re looking to bet on and carefully review the odds and potential payouts. Once you’ve chosen a particular market, such as both teams to score in the next match between D.C. United and Atlanta United, click on it to add it to the betslip, then enter your stake and confirm.
Where can I find soccer picks and predictions?
Which is the best league or competition to bet on?
Which league or competition is the best to bet on really comes down to personal preference. Many American bettors prefer to stick to MLS games here at home, while others are big fans of the national team — international breaks come every few months so there are plenty of opportunities to bet on the likes of England and France. Other top leagues around the world include the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, and the Bundesliga. As always, it’s best to stick to the teams and competitions you are most familiar with and watch regularly.
How do I pick a winner in a soccer match?
Browse the soccer section of your chosen sportsbook and keep an eye out for odds you consider favorable. For example, if you have spotted that Philadelphia Union are in a good run of form and are priced favorably at evens (-100) in their next match, you might want to consider a bet on them. It’s always worth looking at which team is the bookies’ favorite, but bear in mind there are plenty of upsets in the MLS and beyond.
How do I know which market to bet on?
As well as moneyline bets on which team will win, you can make prop bets like a player to score first or get a yellow card. It’s really down to which markets you find enjoyable to bet on and have a good understanding of. Some bettors prefer to stick to futures bets where you predict which team will win a particular competition — these bets will be active for several months or even years in some cases. Decide which types of markets you prefer and conduct your research accordingly.
