If you follow football and are well informed, it can be very tempted to get involved with football wagering, but before you go at it blindly, there are several things to consider and understand which actually makes football wagering a little bit different than just picking the winners.
The most used type of bet in the football wagering system is the spread bet, this is where the bookmaker will determine which team should be the favorite and which is the underdog and the number of points a team has to win or lose by so that the bettor can receive a payout.
When you are researching the betting odds, you will see one team with a negative sign beside the number and that signifies that they are the favorite. So let’s say that the Jets from New York are favorites by 6.5 beside their name, that would mean that they are the favorite and that the opposition would need to lose by 7 or more points so that those who places a bet on the Jets could collect their winnings. On the other hand, if the Jets won by 6 points, those betting on the opposition would actually be the ones to win the bets. So what this means is that it’s possible for your team to win, but with the points spread system you might not win the bet.
Over/Under Totals, futures and squares are also other forms of football wagering, but you will find that most of the time you will be betting using the point spread as it is the most popular amongst bettors.
