INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL LIVE STREAMING & IN-PLAY BETTING (18+. T&CS APPLY)

One of the biggest changes in football betting is the move from the betting shop to online. This has given more choice to punters in terms or odds and markets but it has had another benefit as there has also been a move by the bookmakers to lure in customers by offering all sorts of benefits to having an online account.

Free bets are one such benefit, but the real innovation is that customers of the big betting firms can now watch and bet on live football matches online. There is an incredible array of live streamed matches from across the globe every single week, and customers in the UK now have access to international matches taking place across the globe.

There is no need for a satellite subscription, or any form of on-going payment, to watch online. All that is needed is an account with one of the major bookmakers and then you can watch online, for free, on your desktop, laptop or mobile device.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR BET365 LIVE STREAMING: Watch and bet on football live at bet365 > live streaming > soccer (geo-restrictions apply; funded account required or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours to qualify)

INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY BETTING TIPS: HOW TO BET ON FRIENDLY MATCHES

Betting on international friendly matches could not be easier and there will be a whole host of markets to choose from for every single game – but which international friendly prediction markets should you be using in an attempt to make a profit?

Bettingpro.com offers international friendly betting tips for selected matches throughout the year and the following markets feature regularly in our previews…

Match Winner

Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market will be available for every international friendly match, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive market – for example, Germany v France or England v Spain. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.

Handicap

The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Switzerland are 3/4 to beat Iceland, but you might fancy them to win by a couple of goals and that means the handicap market is the one for you because it offers a better price. In this instance, Switzerland -1 to win the match is available at 11/5. So what does the -1 mean? It means Iceland will start the game with a fictional 1-0 lead and Switzerland must win by two goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Iceland could hold Switzerland to a draw so you could go Iceland +1, which is available at 11/10. That means if the match is, for example, a 1-1 draw on the pitch, Iceland will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.

Half-Time/Full-Time

Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe England and Spain will be drawing at half-time but fancy England to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/England, which is available at 5/1. This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – France to win by 1 goal, France to win by 2 goals, France to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing France to beat Germany at 9/5, you may fancy them to run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing France to win by 2 goals in this instance would give the world champions’ odds of winning the match even more appeal at 8/1.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one World Cup game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect Russia to beat Turkey but want a bigger price than 11/5. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 6/1 on Russia to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Turkey to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when Turkey host Russia you may be expecting the visitors to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back Russia/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 5/1. It does not matter if Russia win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market will be available for every single World Cup match and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.
