How to make a Soccer Money Line Bet

A soccer money line bet is the most basic soccer bet of all.  In every sports we have all had the same debate hundreds of times. Who is going to win? Even some one who knows absolutely nothing about soccer can have an opinion but, what about putting your money where your mouth is?

Betting the money line is a bet that everybody understands. The favorite will have odds set with a lower payout, while the underdog’s odds will offer you a larger payout because the team less likely to win. If, however, you’re not used to reading money lines they can be a little tricky to understand, but that’s why we are here to help.

Soccer Money Line example with two clubs:

Ecuador +320
England -120
Draw +250

Reading the money line depends on whether the posted odds are negative or positive. For England, who is the favored team in this game. The -120 indicates that in order to win $100, you would have to wager $120. For Ecuador, which is the underdog team. The +320 means that if you wagered $100 on them and they won, you would win $320.

The lines for this game show that a draw is actually a more likely outcome than a win for Ecuador, which is why the money line here is set at +250. If you felt so inclined, you could put $100 on the draw so you could win $250.

Regardless of which of the three outcomes you’ve bet on, any winning bet will also pay back your initial wager. This means that if you bet $100 on the draw and won, you would see $350 added to your bankroll, which is your $100 wager plus the $250 payout.
