Reading a Soccer Betting Sheet
If you haven’t bet on soccer before the odds may seem a little strange at first. If you are used to betting on American sports then soccer will definitely be different. Unlike other American games, soccer can end in a tie (draw). Below I have a match odds for Manchester United vs Arsenal.
Soccer Odds Example
The listed bet types are; spread, money line, total.
- Spread Bet – The spread bet on Manchester United would return $130 for every $100 bet. You notice under spread betting that the odds do not include a draw. If it is a draw the it is considered “no action” and your money is refunded.
- Money Line Bet – Like a spread bet but it includes the option of betting on a draw. Since there are now three outcomes instead of two. The odds have increased. A wager on Manchester Untied to win would pay $210 for every $100 bet.
- Total Bet – Total number of goals for BOTH teams in the match. This is regulation scoring. A bet on over 2 would require $145 to win $100.
