Free football bets are one of the main types of free bets that are currently released by bookmakers as a means of raising interest and awareness of the service they provide.

Betting is a massive industry and bookmakers are able to release free football bets as a way of getting potential customers to sign up and try out a service before committing large volumes of their own money.

There are various ways to find free football bets. แทงบอล The most popular way is to go online and search through a free online betting website. There are a variety of football free bets that are offered by the many different online bookmakers, and some of these offers are only valid to customers who sign up to a website online.

Another way of fining free football bets is by looking through the sports section of a newspaper or going into bookmaking shops in order to find offers. แทงบอลออนไลน์However this would obviously take a lot longer and not many people have the time to do this on a regular basis. Therefore for most people, using a free bets website is likely to be the best option.

Free football bets will work in two different ways. Firstly, there will be the matched bets. These offers will work on the basis that the bookmaker will match the first bet that you place on any football related betting market.

If the sportsbook is busy with action, it must be football season. Whether it's the NFL or NCAA, football betting action is fast and furious during the season. For the newbie sports bettor, it can seem a bit confusing, but football bets really come down to two types-straight bets and parlay bets.

Football Betting - Straight Bets

Here's the workhorse for any winning football bettor. A straight bet simply means you're betting on one football game. If you bet on more than one game on the same ticket, it's a parlay, and we'll talk about that in a minute.

When you make a straight football bet, you could be betting on a side or total. Simply put, when you bet a side, you "pick a side" in the game. For instance, let's say the New England Patriots are playing the Seattle Seahawks. If you're going to bet a side, you'd bet on either the Patriots or the Seahawks.

Every game has a point total (except NCAA football, which is most games). This is the amount of points scored between both teams. When you bet a total, you're betting under or over that total. For instance, let's say the total is 47 and you take the over. To win, both teams must combine for 48 or more points (47 would be a push, which means you get your bet back).

Football Betting - Parlays

Okay, so you know about straight bets, which is where you bet on just one thing per ticket. When you want to bet on more than one thing, it's a parlay. You can bet on 2 - 20 things (depends on the sportsbook).

For instance, let's say you bet on the Seahawks and over the total on your ticket. That would be a 2-team parlay (even though technically there's only one team on it).

The more items you put on the ticket, the more money you'll win if they all hit. Naturally, the more items on the ticket, the harder it is to win.

With parlay bets it's an all or nothing thing. If one pick fails, the ticket is dead. Some sportsbooks will run specials for getting close, but that's very rare.
