Football is the most popular sport in the world when it comes to online betting and the top bookmakers cover football divisions all over the planet so that you will be able to place a pre-match or In-Play bet at any time of day. This can be on your PC, tablet or mobile device.
There are betting customers winning at big odds every week, with many punters now enjoying accumulator bets with the potential to get a large return from a small stake. During the 2012/13 season, a £5 double of Manchester United and Cardiff City winning the respective top two divisions in English football would have returned £180 at the end of the season.
You can win at big odds for a small stake
Similarly, Doncaster Rovers were a 16/1 shot to win English League One and the south Yorkshire team dramatically won the title with the final kick of their match at Brentford after the Bees had missed an injury-time penalty which would have secured them automatic promotion instead.
The odds on Swansea City and Bradford City meeting each other in the 2013 Capital One Cup were 10,000/1, with the League Two team having made it past Arsenal and Aston Villa en route to Wembley.
If you enjoy betting on football then Bettingpro.com covers a wide range of leagues including the English Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, Serie A, Bundesliga, La Liga and the English Championship.
Football betting promotions are available
Several bookmakers also run promotions for each big match which means there is the chance to get money back or even double your money should a certain player score more than one goal.
Many customers like to place antepost bets before the start of the season, while there is the chance to also bet on the winner of the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League as the season wears on.
However, the majority of betting turnover is on a match-to-match basis, with customers enjoying pre-match and In-Play wagers on the big televised encounters as well as the many football games that are live streamed by the bookmakers.
The most popular pre-match and In-Play football betting market is the Win-Draw-Win market where you either bet on the home team, away team or draw. Other popular markets include First Goalscorer, Correct Score, Half-Time Full-Time, Total Goals and Both Teams to Score.
Indeed, Both Teams to Score is a popular market to the extent where many bookmakers now create accumulator possibilities so that customers can choose the matches where they feel that goals will be scored. It helps to look at previous results to determine whether a certain match should be part of a multiple bet.
Accumulator betting is also popular for football as it gives customers the chance to make several selections and the chance to win at big odds for a small stake compared to just betting on the outcome of one match.
