The most common type of soccer game winner bet is the straight up bet. This is often referred to as a ‘to-win’ bet, the Moneyline bet, or just the game-winner bet.
All you have to do is pick which team you think is going to win the upcoming soccer game, and that is it. If the team you picked wins, you win your bet. It does not matter by how many goals they win, if the game finishes in regulation, or how pretty the victory is. As long as the soccer team that you picked to win walks away the winner, you win your bet.
It is important for you to realize that not all Moneyline or game winner bets are going to pay out the same profit. The profit you’ll receive will be determined by how likely the team is to win the game and how much money the other sports bettors have bet or not bet on them.
The more likely a soccer team is to win and the more money that has been bet on them, the lower the profit you can expect to get if you choose to bet them. The less likely a soccer team is to win and the less money that has been bet on them, the higher the profit you should expect to get with a correct pick.
The goal is to get the right amount of money bet on each team so that they can turn a profit regardless of who wins. This means that they need to encourage more action on the underdogs or less popular pick and discourage action on the favorites or more popular picks.
