Football betting has experienced fantastic growth in recent years since online betting channels have become more popular and widespread.

Punters are not shy when it comes to early tech adoption and this can be seen in the massive volumes of football betting transactions that are processed daily.

It is no surprise then that this enticing market is found amongst some of the most active betting markets in the world.

Great Local Events

Football betting potential is huge in NZ at the moment, and with so many international teams competing in different leagues it is almost impossible for punters to miss out on fast paced football action.

But the big overseas matches need not be the only goal for punters. Local events can help create an uptick in the betting NZ trends nationally, which is great for bookies and punters alike.

Size Doesn’t Necessarily Matter

Punters needn’t be too concerned about catching only the big teams in a season as smaller smart bets placed strategically on the minnow teams will help to better their chances of bolstering their winnings.

By the same token, bigger matches shouldn’t be neglected either as there are some fantastic odds for rival clubs as well as late season deciding matches. It’s important for punters to be cognisant of the best opportunities and to bet accordingly.

In It To Win It

The first step towards placing a good wager is to take a look at what is available on the betting scene for the time frame you have in mind. Online tips are aplenty and researching is just a mouse click (or screen tap) away. The next step is to decide how you would like to place your bet.

The standard port of call for punters these days is to place a bet digitally online, it’s safe, it’s secure and it’s very quick and easy. Just log into your favourite betting site or app, place your wager, and you’re off on your merry way.

That’s not to say that the establishments of old have vanished overnight, there are plenty of bookmakers still around and are usually very easy to find and are more than capable of taking care of your football betting needs.

Bet Types In Football

A popular option for football betting is to predict just the winner of the match or if it will be a draw. This is a great bet as you won’t have to dive into all the stats necessarily.

The main odds to be aware of will be the teams win loss ratios against one another. This can be enough to place a decent bet and is a real crowd pleaser.

Slightly trickier is the score spread bet. This bet requires that punters successfully predict by how much a team will win by. For instance, if the spread between team A and team B is a 1 goal difference then an acceptable outcome for Team A would be: 1 – 0, 2 – 1, 3 – 2 and so on.
