Betting on soccer has grown in popularity with a number of ways to place bets increasing dramatically in recent years. From simply backing the winner or result of a single match to predicting premiership winners, top goalscorers, wooden spoonists and whether or not a player will be yellow or red-carded, the opportunity to bet on soccer has never been greater.

A rundown of some of the types of bets you can place on soccer games is below:

Match Betting:ย Simply back the result, whether you think it will be a home win, an away win or a draw.

Correct Score:ย Predict the correct score in the game.

Over/Under Total Goals:ย Bet on whether you think there will be more or less than 2.5 goals in the game. If it ends 1-1, then it is under 2.5 goals. If it ends 3-2, then it is over 2.5 goals. Other totals are available โ€“ usually 0.5, 1.5, 3.5 and 4.5.

First Goalscorer:ย Predict who will get the first goal of the game.

Both Teams To Score:ย If you think both teams will find the back of the net in the game, then this is the bet for you.

Handicap Betting:ย Bookmakers offer you the chance to bet on the result of the game but where one team starts with a handicap (usually one or two goals).

Premiership Betting:ย Back the team you think will be crowned premiers by winning the A-League Grand Final or the Premier League for example.

Wooden Spoon:ย Back the team you think will finish bottom of the ladder at the end of the regular season.

Top Goalscorer:ย Predict who will finish the season as the leading goalscorer in a selected league.
