Bet365 is the biggest online bookmaker in the UK. Bet365 sold its betting shop chain in 2005 to Coral to concentrate on the online business. This has paid off handsomely in recent years as Bet365 is arguably the best online bookmaker.

Bet365 betting shops in the early 2000s

Bet365 offer a wide range of markets on sports. For football/ soccer, the range of bets is unrivaled.

Popular Soccer markets
Full time result, or 1×2, or win/ draw / away. Just a bet on the result. Simple.

Double Chance You pick two results, Home win or Draw, Draw or Away, Home win or Away win. Lower odds but a better chance of the bet coming in.

Correct Score Self explanatory. Just what will the score will be.

Half time/ Full time What will the result be at full time and half time. Can get some good value if you know a team scores early or late on in games.

Half time/ Full time correct score Guess the exact score at half time and full time.

Goals Over/ Under Will there be more than 2.5 goals in a game? 2 goals is under. 3 goals is over.

Both teams to score Will both teams score? Yes or no

Goalscorers Who will score, first, last or anytime. Each-way 1/3 odds unlimited places.

Multi scorers Who will score 2 or more and 3 or more. In other words, will someone score a brace or a hattrick?

Asian Handicap – popular handicap in Asia, generally better odds. Read more about Asian Handicaps here.

Goal-line Similar to Over/ Unders but can have quarter goal lines. For example, over 2.25, means for someone betting over, a 2 goal score is just a half loss, whereas an under bet is a half win.

Alternative Asian Handicap Don’t like the handicap offered? You can select your own Asian handicap.

Alternative Goal Line Don’t like the goal line? You can select a different line. eg, bet over 2.0 goals to get money back for 2 goals exactly.

Draw no bet. If there is a draw, you get your money back. Exactly the same as the Asian Handicap +0 so check which one offers the best price.

Result/ Both teams to score Will a team win to nil or will both teams score?

Handicap result. This is the 1×2 handicap or the European Handicap. THe handicap draw is a possibility and you will lose rather than push in the Asian Handicap.

Alternative Handicap result Don’t like the handicap offered? Select your own.

Winning margin. Who will win and by how many?

Scorecast Who will score and what will be the correct score. Very hard to get right but the odds are high. You can read more about scorecasts here

Anytime Scorecast Who will score anytime and the correct score. Slightly easier to get than the regular scorecast.

1st Half Scorecast Same as scorecasts but just the first half. Should be easier to predict as there are fewer half time scorelines than at full time.

Wincast Who will score and what will the result be?

Timecast Who will score first and at what time period. 1-20, 21-45 or 46+
