The Popular Type Of Sports Betting

Prop Bets / Special:

Specials or Prop Bets, are an entertaining and fun type of wagers that are dependent on luck more than anything else. The professional betters stay away from these bets. However, these bets can be the means to earn some more money. These types of bets are normally specific bets (for instance who will score the first goal, who will take the first corner, or will any player score a hat trick), which do not have a direct effect on the match’s outcome.  

Outright Bets / Ante-post:

This is your best option if you have a player or team to win a specific competition and you would like to bet on this. These kinds of bets are broadly wagering on the likely winner of the competition months or weeks before the event even starts. When making ante-post bets or outright bets, all that matters to you to win that particular bet is that the team or player you have supported at the start of the season goes on to lift the trophy at the end of the match.  

Accumulator bets:

This involves placing many selections as a part of a single wager. For instance, if you want to bet on Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool to win their next game, you have to include all 4 in your accumulator bet. However one has to be careful while making accumulator bets because they are hard to win. After all, you have to be right about your selection, for you to pass your slip. And if you fail to win one selection, your full wager is gone. However, the bright side is that the returns can be very lucrative if you happen to win.
