Ready? Let’s get this show on the road! 

Best Soccer Betting Markets 

Before I go into detail about each specific wager, here is my list of the easiest soccer betting markets to win in 2024. If you already know a thing or two about soccer betting, the chances are that you’re familiar with some of these markets. 

  • Both teams to score (BTTS) 
  • Over/under goals 
  • Double chance 
  • Draw no bet 

Did you know that the both teams to score market is one of the easiest soccer betting markets to win? Have you tried your hand at double chance betting? Do you want some tips for betting on the anytime goalscorer market? 

It’s time to take an in-depth look at the easiest soccer betting markets to win. 

Both Teams to Score 

As the name suggests, the both teams to score market requires you to predict whether both teams will score in a match. Sportsbooks give you two options to choose from – ‘yes’ and ‘no’. All you need to do is select one of the options. 

Thankfully, there are lots of useful websites that specialize in BTTS stats and trends. If you familiarize yourself with a particular league and learn about the teams’ BTTS ratios, you will give yourself a far greater chance of winning money. 

To give you an idea of what to look out for, here are the highest and lowest BTTS ratios from the 2022-23 English Premier League season. 

2022-23 ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE – HIGHEST & LOWEST BTTS RATIOS 

1. Leeds United (68%) 

2. Tottenham Hotspur (63%) 

3. Brighton & Hove Albion (61%) 

4. Fulham (61%) 

————————————————– 

17. West Ham United (42%) 

18. Manchester United (42%) 

19. Bournemouth (37%) 

20. Wolverhampton Wanderers (37%) 

As you can see, Leeds United finished the 2022-23 season with the highest BTTS ratio in the EPL, as both teams scored in 26 of their 38 matches (68%). At the opposite end of the spectrum, both teams scored in only 14 of Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers’ matches (37%). 

If two teams with high BTTS ratios are playing against each other, you should back both teams to score. However, if one or two of the teams possess a low BTTS ratio, you should select the ‘no’ option. 

Needless to say, this strategy is not guaranteed to work 100% of the time, but you can gain a significant edge over the bookies by studying the BTTS statistics for every match you wager on.

Over/Under Goals 

The over/under goals markets are also among the easiest soccer betting markets to win. Also known as totals, these wagers enable you to predict the total number of goals scored in a match. 

Like BTTS, the over/under markets can be made easier with statistics. Let’s take a look at the highest and lowest over 2.5 goals ratios from the 2022-23 EPL season. 

2022-23 ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE – HIGHEST & LOWEST OVER 2.5 GOALS RATIOS 

1. Arsenal (68%) 

2. Manchester City (66%) 

3. Brighton & Hove Albion (66%) 

4. Fulham (66%) 

————————————————– 

17. Everton (42%) 

18. West Ham United (39%) 

19. Crystal Palace (39%) 

20. Wolverhampton Wanderers (39%) 

Arsenal saw over 2.5 goals in 26 of their 38 matches, giving the Gunners an over 2.5 goals ratio of 68%. By contrast, Wolves, Crystal Palace and West Ham saw over 2.5 goals in 15 of their 38 matches, giving them an over 2.5 goals ratio of 39%. 

Although over/under 2.5 goals is the most popular option, you can also bet on 0.5 goals, 1.5 goals, 3.5 goals, 4.5 goals and so on. 

Ultimately, the key is to assess both teams’ goal ratios before you bet on a match. If two high-scoring teams are facing each other, the ‘over’ options come into play. If you’re betting on a match with two low-scoring teams, you should consider the ‘under’ options. 

Double Chance 

The double chance market is one of the easiest soccer betting markets to win. Why? Because you get two chances to win! 

Put simply, the double chance market allows you to cover two of the three possible final results of a match. You can either back a team to win or draw, or you can back either team to win. 

This is how the double chance market works: 

REGULAR MONEYLINE ODDS 

  • Real Madrid (+115) 
  • Draw (+280) 
  • Barcelona (+190) 

DOUBLE CHANCE ODDS 

  • Real Madrid and Draw (-250) 
  • Barcelona and Draw (-140) 
  • Real Madrid and Barcelona (-333) 

Of course, double chance odds will always be lower than moneyline odds, simply because you’re allowed to cover two outcomes. Still, if you pick the right matches, you can find excellent value in double chance odds. 

Draw No Bet 

Many people confuse the draw no bet market with double chance. Yes, there are similarities between the two markets, but there is also a key difference that you should be aware of. 

While double chance enables you to cover two results, draw no bet eliminates the draw altogether. Essentially, you’re betting on a team to win, but if the match ends in a draw the sportsbook will return your stake. 

This is how the draw no bet market works: 

REGULAR MONEYLINE ODDS 

  • Inter Milan (+100) 
  • Draw (+260) 
  • AC Milan (+250) 

DRAW NO BET ODDS 

  • Inter Milan (-250) 
  • AC Milan (+180) 

If you back Inter Milan’s moneyline odds and the match ends in a draw, your bet will automatically lose. However, if you back Inter Milan using the draw no bet market, your stake will be returned. Better still, you will make a profit if Inter wins. 

Like double chance, draw no bet odds are lower than moneyline odds, but you get the safety net of the draw. That’s what makes it one of the best soccer betting markets available.
