For many fans, the weekly bet is as much a part of football as going to the match. Nothing helps soften the blow of your team’s humiliating home defeat quite like your cheeky £5 accumulator bet doing the business for you.
Some supporters even take an emotional approach to hedge-betting by wagering against their time to ensure that they either have a win to celebrate or plenty of winnings to help drown their sorrows. Others would never consider such a treasonous act as betting on their team to lose.
At OTP, we do our best to help steer you in the right direction with our weekly football betting tips in our Bet’s Be ‘Avin You column.
Betting apps for iPhone and Android have revolutionised the football betting markets though. As Ray Winstone and co. are keen to remind you, the options for in-play betting are almost limitless.
Next, first and anytime scorer bets; first and next booking; times of goals; half-time result; number of corners; last team to score; Asian handicaps and a host of other popular betting markets are available to choose from.
Sometimes the choice of where to put your money can be a little overwhelming, but at OTP we tend to keep it as simple as possible and point you in the direction of flutters that we fancy in some of the more traditional or simple betting markets.
