The most popular bets are 1×2 (away win, home win or draw), Double Chance and Handicap. There is also the Goalscorer – which is a conditional bet where you choose a particular player you think will be the goalscorer in a particular match. This bet is important to be placed early on – before the odds drop.
The 1×2 bet is the most popular and Scannerbet will give you a Champions League prediction for this kind of bet. There can only be 3 options; the away team will win, the home team will win or the match will end in a draw. Around ¾ of all football bets are precisely this type because they are the most simple ones and usually have good odds.
Double chance is also a good option for sports bets. It is exactly like 1×2 but safer – as you pick two possible outcomes. The odds are not as high as with 1×2 but they are usually good enough to win a decent amount.
Handicap bets are where betting houses give one team advantage or disadvantage. There are two types, Asian and European and Asian tends to be more popular. Do you know why? Asian handicap reduces the number of outcomes to 2, rather than 3.
