Half Time, Full Time Betting in Football

Football, or, as they call it in the USA, soccer, is one of the most widely gambled on sports in the world today. It is also one of the most widely watched, with viewing figures for things like World Cup finals coming close to those for major events like Superbowls and royal weddings. It is hardly surprising, then, that many people all over the globe like to bet on the sport of football. What can be hard for the football bettor, however, is to find the right bet to use their knowledge of the game and the players who are involved in a given match to best profit.

Betting on the outcome of a football game is easy and there are many places where you can do this, depending on where you are. If you are in most countries in Europe, you can simply stroll into a betting agents’ shop and make your bet. Alternatively, no matter where you are, as long as it is legal in the country you are in, you can bet via a website aimed at sports gamblers. There are many of these run by reputable, and long established bookmakers like William Hill and Paddy Power. Once you have your account set up though, you need to know what the best bet to place is, and for many followers of football a good one is the half time, full time bet.

You may think Chelsea may beat Man City, for example, but the odds on that are boring and won’t give you much of a return. If, however, you put your money on it being 0-0 at half time and 2-0 at full time, the amount of probability you are dealing with puts your potential winnings up immensely. Yes, you may only win on these bets once or twice a season, but getting them right means odds that make it well worth your investment, and also allow you to bet on games that otherwise may seem like foregone conclusions (like when top teams meet lower teams in whatever league you prefer to bet on).

Consider the full time, half time bet if you don;t want to do an accumulator or if there is one big game you want to bet on. It mat stand between you winning pennies on the dollar and winning hundreds. It is an easy bet to place, both online and in land bookies and casinos, so give it a try!
