UEFA Women’s Euro Betting Markets
When it comes to betting on the tournament, there is no shortage of options. You can place outright bets on the entire tournament, bets on the groups, and bets on individual matches. Here we will take you through some of the most popular types of bets.
As the name suggests, this is simply a bet on which team will win the tournament. You can place this bet before the tournament begins or at any point throughout. In general, the further in advance you place this type of bet, the longer the odds on offer.
This is simply a bet on which team will win each of the groups. If you are feeling ambitious, you could combine bets on different groups into parlay bets, which would result in even longer odds.
Rather than betting on a team to win its group, you can bet on a team to qualify from the group. The top two teams in each group will qualify for the elimination stage.
This is a bet on which stage of a tournament you believe a team will be eliminated. For example, you could bet on a team to be knocked out in the group stages, in the quarterfinals, the semi-finals, or to lose the final.
This is a bet on a team to reach the final. They do not have to win the tournament for the bet to win, simply make it to the final.
Outright Prop Bets
This category of bets include things such as the tournament’s top goal scorer. They are bets that relate to the entire tournament but not to teams winning or losing matches.
When it comes to betting on an individual game, this is the most basic bet there is. You simply need to choose which team will win or bet on the game ending in a draw. As long as your chosen results occurs, then you win the bet.
If you want to build a bit of safety into your bet, then this is an excellent option. It allows you to cover two of the three possible outcomes with a single bet. For example, when England play Austria you could bet on: England to win or Draw, Austria to win or Draw, or England to win or Austria to Win.
Draw No Bet
This market requires you to pick a winner. If your chosen team wins the game then you win your bet and if the game ends in a draw, then your bet is refunded to you. As it is a less risky bet, the odds tend to be shorter.
Sometimes there is a clear favourite to win and this means that the odds on them are not very attractive. This is where handicap betting comes into its own. The idea is that the favourite team is given a goals disadvantage and the underdogs are given an advantage. For example,
England -1 vs Austria +1
If you were to back England, then your bet would only win if England were the winners after a goal had been subtracted from their score. Because of the handicap, the odds on England will be longer. If you were to back Austria, then you will win your bet if Austria are the winners once a goal has been added to their score. Because of this advantage, the odds will be shorter.
This type of market requires you to bet on whether something will happen more or less than the given number of times. For example, the total goals over/under market requires you to bet on the total number of goals scored by both teams, e.g. England vs Austria Over/Under 2.5. If you bet Over then you think at least 3 goals will be scored while if you bet Under, it means that no more than 2 goals will be scored. A similar principle can be applied to the individual halves of a match, the individual teams, and much more.
You can bet on the UEFA Women’s Euro matches as they are taking place. You will find many of the markets described above and the odds on offer will be updated in real time to reflect the action on the pitch. Furthermore, you will also be able to bet on the next thing to happen, such as the next player/team to score, the next corner, and so on. This way, you can have action riding on every moment.
Game Prop Markets
You will find many more markets for each game, ranging from the interesting to the bizarre. For example, you can place a bet on a team to Win From Behind, which means that you think they will fall behind but then make a comeback. You can also place bets such as To Win Either Half, Both Teams to Score, or even Both Teams to Score in Both Halves. You may also see markets such as Own Goal in Match and much more. By taking the time to explore all the markets on offer, you may spot some fantastic betting opportunities.
