Football betting is the most popular type of betting in the world, but it's not always as easy as it seems. Bets may be easy to make and easy to win, but to actually make money you have to have a little more knowledge and know what you are doing.

The most popular type of bet by far is the 1 x 2 bet, otherwise know as win-draw-win. In this type of bet you place your money on the team you think is going to win the match or if it will result in a draw. Casual bettors hardly every place money on the draw outcome and more often that not will bet on the "best" team to win, which almost always will have odds under evens (2.0 or 1/1). This means that the average casual "safe" bettor is often putting their money on low odds and doesn't get much back in returns without huge stakes.
