Every reputable bookmaker will offer new customers some enhanced odds, but no matter what matches you’re looking at, the betting rule goes: read the terms and conditions of offers for new users.
Here’s a quick guide on how to place your first bet on English football against the backdrop of the exciting English Premiere League taking place at the moment.
Choose the matches wisely
Most betting platforms feature a shortcut to a list of EPL matches with live odds. Some present live moneyline odds even days ahead of a game. However, you typically can’t access the full range of markets more than 72 hours in advance.
Sportsbooks feature full-time, halftime, handicap, goals, player markets, and other market categories to choose from.
Select and place a bet
You can make a single bet or an accumulator bet. A single bet is a straight bet on a specific event. You can group single bets in an accumulator. For a payout, all of these bets must materialize.
Let’s say someone bets the Wolves, Southampton and Everton will all win. An overall moneyline wager is created by multiplying the odds with one another. They win if all three teams win.
When you choose your bet, you enter it in the box that appears. When you click on “place bet” or “place wager,” the stake will be deducted from your account with the platform.
Keep in mind that bets made in-play (during matches) often undergo a delay of a few seconds.
There are other things that can help you. To improve your chances of a win on the EPL, use the BetRivers promo code.
Are free bets really free?
Most betting sites offer new users free bets. The sportsbook usually only pays the winnings, not the traditional return of the stake. Free bets are also called matched bets.
Some free bets astound with their generosity. Always read the terms and conditions before making a decision. Some platforms give more free bets instead of actual money if you win. Others place a limit on how much you can win.
Free bets on English football, like free bets in general, usually come with certain playthrough requirements. This means you must wager the bonus amount a fixed number of times before you can withdraw your winnings. This reduces the chance of a cash win.
Bet on the go
All leading bookmakers have mobile apps which allow users to bet on the go. It’s usually possible to place a wager with a few taps of a smartphone. Some sportsbooks make customers special offers if they sign up via an app on a smartphone.
What are the odds?
In essence, odds are a coefficient combined with a stake to form a sum beyond the stake returned. If an EPL team beats another team at odds of +400 (4/1), a $20 stake will yield a payout of $80. Your original stake of $20 would be returned to you as well.
The payout given in addition to the initial stake will be a fraction of the latter’s value when a bet for odds-on teams wins.
