Football Betting & Odds
Football. Soccer. Futbol. Calcio. Fußball. However you say it, the beautiful game is a universal language understood by hundreds of millions around the world. And at Betway, we’re fluent in it.
We’re experts when it comes to online football betting. But don’t just take our word for it – take a look at our comprehensive sportsbook and see for yourself. There you’ll find thousands of football betting markets and some of the most competitive football odds around, covering everything from Premier League betting through to reserve football and a range of youth tournaments and competitions.
As a United Kingdom-based bookmaker we’ve always had a strong focus on football betting. And we took a major step in 2015 by partnering with Premier League giants West Ham United.
Our partnership with the Hammers has strengthened our position as one of the world’s most recognisable online betting sites, while our first-class website has enhanced our reputation as a must-visit destination for football betting.
Euro 2020 Betting
Van Basten’s volley in ‘88. Gazza in the ‘dentist’s chair’ in ’96. Greece’s unprecedented triumph in ‘04. Across a 60-year history, the European Championships have created some of football’s most memorable moments. And, in celebration of that anniversary, the next edition – Euro 2020 – is set to illuminate the continent like never before, with no fewer than 12 countries hosting the action.
The 24 qualifying nations will form six groups of four, making for three group matches each, beginning on 12th June. Group winners and runners-up will qualify for the knockout phase, culminating in the glittering final at Wembley Stadium on 12th July.
With their own group matches, as well as the semi-finals and final, set to be held on their home turf, England are early favourites. But strong competition will come from the likes of holders Portugal, World Champions France and Germany – three-time champions, and the only nation to have contested all 12 editions of the tournament.
Cities across 12 nations may be hosting matches, but when it comes to Euro 2020 betting, there’s only one destination that matters. Betway will be there every step of the way, providing the biggest range of Euro 2020 markets, loaded with the best odds and the hottest tips you need for a memorable summer of football.
Football Leagues & Competitions
The true strength of our sportsbook is anchored in the vast array of football leagues that we cover, ensuring our customers get the most up to date football odds on their chosen competition.
At Betway, we’ve got the latest match odds on every single league, while our 12th Man widget suggests accumulators and combis that not only provide good football odds, but also highlight the best value and most popular multiples other customers have bet on.
Perhaps the biggest league though, remains the Premier League. English football’s rise to prominence since 1992 has been meteoric, and now fans have the chance to bet on the biggest matches and the best football betting markets around with Betway.
From Manchester United to Chelsea, Arsenal to Manchester City and Liverpool to West Ham United, we’ve got every top flight team and every Premier League market covered.
But it’s not just Premier League betting where we excel. While England’s top flight is unquestionably one of the most entertaining, the grandest prize in club competition remains the Champions League. The famous old trophy arguably outstrips the FA Cup in terms of prestige, with 32 giants of the game aiming to be hailed as Champions of Europe. Our Champions League betting markets are among the best in the industry, with outright markets including Champions League Winner and Group Winner, sitting side-by-side regular pre-match and in-play markets.
Not to be overshadowed by its bigger brother, the Europa League remains one of football’s most prized competitions. Replacing the old UEFA Cup in 2009/10, it was given even greater significance as a route into the Champions League for those teams that finished outside of a qualifying place in their domestic leagues. As such, Europa League betting remains hugely popular, and at Betway we continue to provide some of the best football odds in the competition.
For pure entertainment, the English Football League Championship is arguably the greatest league in the world. That’s why when it comes to Championship betting, we’ve got every market covered, from promotion to relegation, top goalscorers to yellow and red card charts, and match-by-match results, scores and custom #BetYourWay Builder markets. And that’s just betting in the regular season. The Championship becomes even more exciting in the play-offs, where four teams battle it out to claim the all-or-nothing final promotion place to the Premier League.
When you bet on La Liga, you bet on what is perhaps the most prestigious domestic league on the planet. While Barcelona and Real Madrid may be the best-known names in the competition, the league is packed with top-quality teams and players throughout. That’s why we offer comprehensive markets on every single La Liga season, match and individual club. Our dedication to Spanish football’s elite division is reflected by our partnerships with Alaves, Levante and Leganes.
Serie A football isn’t just back; it never went away. From the glitz of the Rome derby to the grandeur of Juventus’ Allianz stadium, the glamour of Italian football remains unmatched. And with Inter and AC Milan on the march to regain their former glories, while Napoli rise once again, there’s never been a better time to bet on Serie A.
The growth of the Bundesliga over the past decade has been rapid, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund re-establishing themselves as continental powerhouses. We’ve mirrored that rise by not only offering extensive football betting markets on the Bundesliga 1. and Bundesliga 2. action, but by aligning ourselves with some of the country’s most popular clubs. In recent seasons, we’ve partnered with Werder Bremen, Union Berlin, FC St. Pauli, Eintracht Braunschweig, Dynamo Dresden and Karlsruher SC.
How to bet on football
There are many different ways to bet with our vast selection of football betting markets. Here are just some of the most popular ways of how you can bet on football.
In-play betting offers football fans a thrilling experience like no other, giving you the chance to bet live on games as they’re happening. Say the game is opening up in attack and you have a hunch a goal is coming – you can bet in-play on either side to find the net before their opposition does. You can also bet on more specific markets, such as backing specific players to receive a red card, or score a goal within the next five minutes. Betway offers a huge breadth and depth of in-play betting opportunities across all leagues and markets. If a match is live, we’ll have markets for you to bet on.
Match Result (Win/Draw/Win)
The classic football bet and a popular favourite among fans. Bet on the overall outcome of the game: a home win, a draw, or an away win.
Both Teams to Score
A “BTTS” bet backs both teams in a game to score. So if you have your eye on a match that features two teams that both score lots goals but also both concede a lot, you can bet on both teams to score at least one goal. If both sides do go on to find the net, you win the bet, regardless of the overall outcome.
Not only can you back individual players to find the net, you can predict at what stage in the game they’ll strike. First Goalscorer (FGS) is another all-time favourite at Betway, with football fans wagering on the player they think will open the scoring. This provides superior odds to merely betting on a specific player to score at any time – although you can wager on this if you want to increase the likelihood of winning. Other popular goalscorer markets include Winning Goalscorer and Last Goalscorer.
Have your eye on two or three matches in which you have a hunch about how things are going to play out. Then it’s time to place a double or treble, by combining your two or three match outcome predictions into one bet. This is a great way to increase the odds, especially if you bet on the outcomes of three matches at once i.e. you place a treble.
Accumulators, or 'accas,' are similar to doubles and trebles, in that for your bet to win, you must correctly wager on the multiple matches. The only difference is that an accumulator must consist of four or more games. Used by fans to win big from small stakes, accumulators have fast become a popular choice of bet for upping the excitement on a footballing weekend.
An Over/Under football bet entails wagering on the total number of times an event will happen in a game. However, the over/under does not require you to pick the exact amount of goals to win. All you have to do is wager on whether there will be under or over a specific number of total goals scored in the match. For example, you can bet on under 3.5 goals scored in a given match, or choose over 3.5 goals in the match. If the actual outcome is exactly three goals in this example, neither bet would win.
