Welcome to Your Online Football Betting Guide

You want to know more about football betting? Maybe you are just getting started or have been playing around with it for a while? You’ve come to the right place!

We are your premier address for all things football betting related.

Football (or soccer in some parts of the world) is one of the most popular sports in the world. And not just in Europe!

As such, betting on football is equally popular and it’s hardly surprising that football betting gets a prime position at most betting sites, featuring usually at the top of the menu.

Chances are, you’ve been a football fan for many years, perhaps most of your life. Maybe you’ve even played it at school or with friends. Many casual fans will eventually try their hand at betting on football as well. And that’s where we come in!

Football Betting Introduction

Well, we call ourselves a football betting guide, so guiding is what we do!

We want to help you get into football betting and hopefully help you make better decisions when it comes to betting. That involves many different things and a bit more than a passing interest on your part.

We’ve done all the hard work for you!

You just need to follow along and see whether any of our help is useful to you - we sure hope so!

Let’s take a look at what we’re offering:

  • Betting Site Reviews There are hundreds of betting sites out there - a veritable jungle! We’re here to help you find the best ones, most suitable to your football betting needs. So, be sure to check out our reviews to find the best football betting site!
  • Betting Tips and Events Need football betting tips for upcoming matches? Which team to bet on? Accumulator or BTTS tips? Or how about our bet of the day? Plenty to be explored here, so don’t hesitate!
  • Betting Offers What are they? How do I get them? Which ones are good? What are free bets? What are betting promotions? These questions and many more we’ll be answering for you.
  • Regions What is this, you ask? Well, sports betting doesn’t quite work the same around the world. There are different laws in different countries and different populations have different favourites. Indians love to bet on cricket, so we’ve got that covered. Punters from the US are subject to different rules according to their states. So, we’ve got that covered as well.
  • Odds, in-play betting and strategies Need some football betting terms explained and how all of this stuff works to begin with? Need some useful strategies that don’t make false promises? Read our guides to learn more!
  • Betting Tools New and experienced punters use them, we explain what they are: betting tools. What is an odds calculator and how do accumulator calculators help? Find out here!

There might even be other points than the ones above, but those are definitely our main areas we cover when assessing the right betting sites for online betting.

Online Football Betting FAQ

We sure try to be.

We have tons of experience in the world of online betting, which naturally includes football betting. We’re here to help you and not lead you astray.

Our views are based on extensive research, personal and professional experience and they are as unbiasedas they come.

Yes. All betting sites we have reviewed for you are 100% legal and properly regulated by various gambling jurisdictions. We consider past infractions, the reviews of other players and our own experiences before recommending a site.

It depends on where you live. Each country and region regulates sports betting according to their own laws. There are plenty or regions where sports betting is illegal, but many more where it has been legalised. Before engaging in sports betting online, you should make yourself acquainted with the laws in your regions. We have covered some of that for you on our sites.

A few sites offer really great football betting bonuses as well as worthwhile welcome bonuses. Read our reviews to find out more. We can recommend bet365, Unibet, 888sport, Coral and William Hill right off the bat.

Nah. We can’t do that. We don’t have a magic orb that helps us predict the future. Our betting tips are based on the recent stats of each team and much of our experience. We make sure to check the odds betting sites offer as they tell us a lot about how they expect a match to turn out. But whilst we aim to give good tips that we would follow ourselves, we cannot give a guarantee that a tip we give will result in a win. We sure hope so, but there aren’t guarantees in sports betting. Anyone claiming differently lies.

Getting started with Football Betting

Assuming you’ve read all our guides and reviews, the next step is not particularly difficult. You open an account at the betting sites you deem most suited to your needs.

So, how do you decide that? Answer the following questions:

  • Is the betting site available in my region (can I legally place bets there?)
  • Do they have an appealing welcome offer? Are the bonus terms fair?
  • Can I deposit and withdraw with my preferred payment option?
  • Do they offer the best football betting odds?
  • Do I need live streaming? If so, is it offered at the site of my choice?
  • How is their mobile betting? Do they have a dedicated app?
  • Do I get other gambling products there I might be interested in?
  • Is the user interface easy to use? Do I like it?

When reviewing a site, we try to offer all these questions and then a few more. Once you’ve satisfyingly answered these questions for yourself, simply go ahead and open an account at your preferred betting site:

  1. Register account
  2. Choose username, add your email and password
  3. Confirm details to complete registration (sites differ here, some will require you to enter all your personal details right away, others will go with the basics before asking for further details)
  4. Opt-in or out of the welcome bonus
  5. Make your first deposit
  6. Start betting

Which betting site is the best football betting site?

That feels like a trick question. It’s not so easy or straightforward to answer. It very much depends on your football betting needs and preferences.

Live Betting

Your best option is Bet365 simply for the fact that they have the best live streaming. Betway, however, has awesome in-play betting odds and betting options, but their live streaming doesn’t compare to bet365.

Mobile Betting

The king of mobile betting is LeoVegas. No questions asked. But they don’t have as much experience or as many betting options as many of the more experienced betting sites. Again, Betway is an excellent choice here.

UK and Ireland Football Betting

Any of the UK or Ireland betting sites have you covered here – William Hill, Coral, BetFred, BetVictor. There’s almost no way to make a wrong choice here, but they are different and have different advantages and disadvantages. Did we mention our in-depth reviews yet?

Horse Racing Betting

Again, the UK betting sites are your best friend here. In particular, BetVictor and BetFred place a strong focus on horse racing.

Best Betting Exchange

Betfair. Hands down.

Depositing and withdrawing at football betting sites

This is a huge deal for most punters. Being able to find the best site includes finding one that allows you to make deposits and withdrawals with the payment option that is most convenient to you. For instance, in the UK it is no longer possible to use credit cards to make deposits. The UK Gambling Commission made this impossible as a measure to protect vulnerable gamblers.

Instead, many UK betting sites now work with PayPal again (which was not possible for a long) to offer a convenient and popular payment method. It is important to note that your PayPal account must not be funded via a credit card, however.

Whether you want to make a deposit or a withdrawal, the steps are usually the same:

  1. Visit the cashier
  2. Choose your payment method
  3. Enter the amount you wish to deposit/withdraw
  4. Add the payment details as required (bank account number, PayPal email address, prepaid number, etc.)
  5. Confirm

In the case of making a deposit, your funds will usually be available instantly. Though that does depend on your funding choice.

When making a withdrawal, you will eventually have to go through the KYC (Know your customer) process imposed by a betting site. This is to ensure that you are who you claim to be to prevent fraud and adhere to anti-money laundering regulations set by gambling jurisdictions.

The KYC process can be quite involved and is best done right after you sign up at a betting site. That way you can get your documents sorted and have time to get it right before you make your first withdrawal request.

Also keep in mind that withdrawal requests first have to be processed by the betting site (some customer service team is looking after that) and it then takes a few hours or even a few days for the money to hit your account.

Gamble Responsibly

Finally, whatever you do, do it responsibly. Betting and gambling can result in problematic gambling behaviour and we want you to have fun and bet responsibly. Football betting is not a way to earn an income. Yes, you can make a profit, if you bet smart. Check out our betting tips to learn more. We aim for responsible gambling and betting with our tips as well.

Need a few tips how to be on the safe side?

  • Set limits – For your time spent on betting, the number of bets you place, the funds you a betting
  • Prepare to lose – There is never a guarantee that your bet will be successful, so don’t count on winning
  • Bet only what you are prepared to lose – See above!
  • Don’t believe betting systems – They don’t work! Full Stop!
  • Don’t chase your losses – Ever! Refer back to only betting what you can comfortably lose.

And if the fun stops, you should stop betting as well.

If you feel that you spent too much time betting or that you are spending more than you should, make sure to get help. There are plenty of places online to refer back to and every responsible betting site will provide you with help as well. Coral has some of the best tools to help you here, so check them out and take care of yourself.
