Serie A Odds Explained
Each Serie A game brings with it well over one hundred different betting markets and each one represents a chance to win. However, in order to make the most of them it is important that you understand the differences between the types of bet. Broadly speaking, bets are split into two categories, Outrights, which deal with the league as a whole, and Game Odds, which deal with each match. Many of the bets are self-explanatory, but some are a little more complicated and it is worth taking time look into them.
Serie A Markets
Most of the time when you bet on Serie A you will be looking at the Game Odd markets, those that are about individual matches. The most basic of these is of course the 1X2 Full Time, which is simply a bet on one of the teams to win or the match to end in a draw. A very similar bet is 1X2 1st Half, a bet on who will win the first half. However, from there the bets begin to become more specific and deal with specific aspects of the game.
The match bets are divided into a number of categories, such as Goals, Corners, Halves, Cards, and Players. Under each, you will find many different markets. For example, the Total Goals market is a bet on how many goals the game will have, over or under a specific number. This should not be confused with the Exact Score market, which is exactly what it sounds like. As you explore the categories, you will realise that you can truly bet on every aspect of a match, from who will score or be carded, to how many corners there will be, and make every moment of a match into a bet winning opportunity.
The Serie A outright markets deal with the league as a whole and give you the chance to place some longer-term bets. The most popular of these markets is the league winner, you can place this bet at any point in the season and with a bit of luck, you may be able to make an early prediction and get some fantastic odds. The odds will be updated as the season progresses, so if a team starts slow but you are sure they are going to win, then there is a very good chance that you will find long odds on them after the first few matches.
The top of the league is always a battle; not only do teams want to win, but they also want to reach the European competitions. That is why the Top Four Finish market can be so exciting and also a great way to back a team that you think has potential but you are not sure quite how well they will do. Similarly, you can also bet on which teams will be relegated, and towards the end of the season, this can become extremely competitive. Very often there is also a Winner Without X Team market, this market essential removes the leading team from the equation and allows you to bet on who you think will be the next best. There are many more outright markets, such as Top Goal Scorer, so be sure to take a look at them all to see what opportunities you can find.
Placing a bet before a match definitely makes the game more exciting but in-play betting, which allows you to place bets as the match takes place, takes this excitement to an entire new level. There are a huge number of in-play markets and the odds will be continually updated based upon what is happening on the pitch. In-play betting also has a completely separate category of betting markets, the ‘next to’ bets. These are simply bets on the next thing to happen, such as the next team or player to score or the next player to foul. There are also fast markets, where you can bet on an event, such as a goal, card, corner or penalty, taking place in the next 1 or 5 minutes. By keeping a careful eye on all these markets and the changing odds, you may be able to spot some fantastic betting opportunities. Best of all, we also bring you live updates from the match, so even if you can’t watch it you will still know who has possession, who is attacking, and other useful statistics such as ball possession, goal attempts, shots on target, and so on, ensuring that you can enjoy live betting action at all times.
