In recent years, the betting market has grown like wildfire in sports. It is impossible to see a television broadcast without advertising referring to these companies or team uniforms with advertising alluding to this business.
FIFA has tried to keep the football away from a movement as complex as pools and money, but they are so ingrained in 21st-century society and sports that it is practically impossible to separate them.
Morally, betting is frowned upon, but many fans seek to take advantage of their sports knowledge to get extra money, with all kinds of results. From those who have been able to turn their lives around to those who ended up losing everything, there must always be self-control to know when it is appropriate to stop investing in them.
- Bank: The money deposited in the application that is available to bet. Generally, it is always recommended to always keep a part to withdraw or continue playing.
- Double Chance: The option to win with two possible outcomes. Logically, the odds end down, but it is more likely to win.
- Draw no action: Bets in which it is played by a favorite, but if the match ends in a tie, the full money is returned to the users.
- Funbet: Low-risk bet that includes combinations or results with little probability. If one is won, the benefit is extremely profitable.
- Asian Handicap: Bet on which benefits are awarded to one of the teams. Example: Team A and Team B face each other, you can bet that Team A wins the match with a four or five-goal advantage, and the same for Team B, giving a margin of defeat.
- Moneyline: Usually abbreviated as ML, it means betting on a direct match, without involving goals or margins. Example: America defeats Chivas.
- Parlay The combination of various games. Combination bets represent a higher risk, but a very seductive payoff. If a single match is lost, the parlay is lost. Example: In the same weekend, Tigres will defeat Morelia, Chicago Fire against Toronto FC, and Manchester City against Everton.
- Pick: Simply, the play itself. If a bettor is asked for a pick, it only refers to the prediction of a certain match.
- Underdog: The least favorite team to prevail. An example would be Leicester City in the 2015-2016 Premier League, which despite being leaders, bettors continued to give interesting odds in their games.
