Country Teams 1 X 2 Drop

If you are someone who does not have a lot of experience when it comes to betting on sports, then it might seem a little weird to you when you start to see the odds are starting to drop and when they are constantly happening. So, you might ask yourself why the odds drop, and the fact is that it is normal in the sports betting landscape. The main reason people think that team's odds drop is because there has been a late change to the starting line up or a top-quality player like Mo Salah is now in doubt for the match. That is usually not the case and, in this article, I will hopefully give you all the information that you need when it comes to odds and why they move the way they do. On top of that as well how you can figure out odds that are dropping and how to win when the odds are dropping.

What do dropping odds mean?

Starting, we will define what dropping odds means.

The term dropping odds might not be something that you hear often but it is easy to understand it if you take the time to figure it out.

Do dropping odds win?

They usually do not every time, however, they normally give you a good insight into what the outcome of the match might be without giving you information into how the match will go. Most people have seen through several other examples, the odds of a match normally start to drop when something happens in the match that could decide the outcome. Whether that be a goal, a red card, or a star player is taken off. However, this does not always mean that these instances will affect the outcome of the match, but it is something to think about when you decide to analyze the game that you are watching. When the odds drop during a game that will usually mean that something has changed from when the match started so it can be used as a neat little insight however this is not a definitive indicator for how the match will ultimately go.     

Now, this is only my opinion and there will nearly always be others that have different opinions. So, most people who bet on football matches they have a very definitive opinion on who will win and by them betting on their team, that will have an impact on the odds of the match. Usually, this will be in full effect during games between rivals such as Arsenal v Tottenham in the North London Derby or El Classico between Barcelona and Real Madrid. So when punters decide to bet on one of the teams this, in turn, makes betting companies alter their odds for the game when it comes to who will be the favourite to win and who will not. That is something to think about when you are deciding on who to bet on.

Should I accept odds movement?

Usually, that would be a no whether you do decide to go with the lower odds. But this is not always true in certain aspects.

Sometimes you as the bettor will be able to get great value when the odds have dropped for football matches.

What does increasing the odds mean?

This means increasing the chances of something happening during a game. To make it easier to understand, so according to research people who spend most of their time out in the sun will be at a greater risk of skin cancer compared to people who stay away from sunlight. So, this only tells us that people who are in the sun often are at a great risk than those who do not.

What does it mean when odds go up?

When odds are low that will mean that it is highly likely that it will happen whereas high odds tend to mean that it is less likely to happen and this can confuse some punters. To make it easier to understand, when the odds are high, for example, if Arsenal plays Liverpool at Anfield, the Gunners would be paying something like ten pounds to win.

So, if you put money on Arsenal to win you would get a lot of money back. However, with these odds, it is not something you can take great confidence in that it will happen as it is extremely unlikely.

What is accept all odds movement?

Some betting sites will have an option for you to accept the movement of odds. This will allow you to have the changes in price that can happen from when you put selections into your bet slip to when you are ready to place your bet and this means that you will have nothing stopping you from placing your bet.

How do odds change in a football match?

This one is easy. Odds will change throughout a game for numerous reasons. If the favoured team scores first, then the odds for a draw or win for the underdog will go up higher than what was previously set before kick-off.

On top of that, if the underdog does in fact score first then the odds for a draw for the match will go up too.  

What do odds mean?

The odds of a football match will indicate how likely that is to happen. When it comes to betting on sports and in particular football both teams are given odds before the game. When both sides are given the same odds, like Liverpool v Manchester City then that means that they are at evens and that means that both teams have the same likelihood of winning the game. Whereas if a team like Aston Villa is playing away to Chelsea then Chelsea would have the smaller odds because most punters will bet on them to win the match and Villa would have the higher odds for the match.

How can I know the winning team by odds?

When there is a team that is available to bet on and they have a 2.0 price set, that means that the team has a 50% shot at winning the match as well as losing it. This is down to the conversion of the prices to a percentage chance; all you must do is divide the odds by 100. After that, it is then up to you after all your time researching both teams and to see if it is worth placing the bet or not and if it is good value.

How do I win a football bet?

How to win big on football bets

  1. Record of all your bets that you have going
  2. Do not be afraid to change sites as some have different odds to others
  3. Make sure you understand everything there is to know about football
  4. Do not be afraid to take those smaller wins.
  5. Make a daily budget
  6. Take the small wins
  7. Do not chase after your losses, tomorrow is a new day

What are open bets?

A TAB style bet is an open bet or tote and that is a bet that is made with a bookmaker. You place the bet with your chosen bookmaker and then they pay the odds as seen by the tote for all the winning markets. 

Is it better to bet early or late?

Betting late is personally my choice. As it gives you more time to study both teams, their recent history, and current form so betting late is a great way to go if you are looking at winning your bet. If you decide to wait to place a bet on your chosen game that in turn gives you more time to handicap the match and that can leave you with an increased chance of winning. Doing this is a good idea for punters because it can bring good value to their selections even if the line for the match goes in the wrong direction. After all, they are making an informed decision and in turn, will not be betting on bad situations.

Are higher odds better?

Normally when you are looking at placing your bet, you can view the odds that the site has for that match. The odds that are lower represent a lower payout simply because there is a high chance that the team with the lower odds is more likely to win. The higher the odds for a game the higher your winnings will be however it is less likely that it will happen and if both teams have the same price then it is even as to which team is likely to win lose or draw.    

How to interpret dropping odds

When we talk about dropping odds, this means that your chosen site or bookmaker is moving the prices of matches to help show the real chances of the outcome of the match and also to help with the amount of money that they receive from your bet. Normally odds for matches are given out weeks in advance so if you notice that there are constant drops in prices for matches it does not always mean that something substantial is happening. It is usually because punters are betting more heavily on one team than another. However, if there is a serious price drop, for example, Chelsea is paying $1.75 to beat Leicester City and then their odds blow out to $4.50 then you know that something serious has happened to the side like an injury to a key player.

Dropping odds how to use

If you have a good understanding of how odds for matches move, then you can easily use dropping odds to your advantage. We will now have a look as to how you can use odds that are dropping and increasing in all markets before the game along with conditions that can game during the game.

Pre-game odds movements

For you to have a good chance a using the dropping odds to your advantage you need to have an in-depth understanding of the teams or league that you want to bet on. If you have a sound knowledge of both teams, then when the bookmaker puts out his odds you can notice straight away if there are any mistakes with his odds or it can give you an insight as to where the odds with be when kick-off time comes around. The drop in odds for a cup tie or European match can be big and represent a good chance to win some money. 

An example of this is that on Saturday Arsenal will play Leicester City at home and the bookmaker is predicting that Arsenal will win. With that the Gunners odds would be around 1.60, Leicester’s odds would be around the 3.00 mark and a draw would be 2.40. Add to that both teams have European football matches during the week and say Arsenal suffers an injury to captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang while Leicester has a relatively easy game and can afford to rest a star player like Jamie Vardy.

So, then the odds for the game will come out and the match odds for a Leicester draw or win will now drop. The new odds would be Leicester to win 1.80 and a draw would be 2.00. If you now chose to bet on Leicester to win you will already be in good shape. If you now choose to cash out or keep going with your bet, then by this point you have taken that all-important step of understanding the dropping odds side of betting and you can keep betting on the match result or other markets like goals or who will get cards in the match. Just make sure that you are always checking for any updates on your chosen match as the weather or injury to a key player can give you another chance to make some more money even before the match has kicked off. 

An example of this is that if you would like to be on a special market and say bet on the goals to be scored in the game which is normally over a certain amount or under, then you need to check on the weather before you place your bet. If there are huge amounts of rain forecast or falling on the day of the match, then that can change the odds. Add to that if your match has two teams that are high scorers then choosing under the set amount of goals will be less money because it is less likely to happen. So, if you do decide to bet on it during the week and the odds drop closer to kick-off, you can gain a nice little profit. 

Dropping odds strategy in betting

If you are trying to win some money from betting on dropping odds, most bettors will be thinking what the better way is to go for them to win. Unfortunately, I can not give you a setlist. If you are one who likes to bet on a wide number of sports, then this is next to impossible. To make it easier you should choose one sport and then learn everything there is to know about the sport itself and the teams that play in that sport.

An example of this is that if you are betting on football, the dropping odds are easier to see during the early games of the year, this is because all teams are just starting and are nowhere near their full strength and the bookmakers are trying to figure out how each team will perform. This is more noticeable in teams that have just been promoted. When it comes to golf, on the other hand, prices for golfers to win are normally based on their world rankings and the odds you see first will be solely based on the players ranking. As each player goes through their round, it will become a lot clearer who has a good chance to win the tournament and who does not as the odds will either increase or drop for all players.

Football dropping odds strategy

When it comes to football, the dropping odds are a whole area to itself. This is because punters can work out the odds that are dropping and increasing easier and because football is such a hugely popular sport. Add to that, you do not need to religiously study teams form or anything like that as teams’ odds change a lot over the week in the lead up to the game. It will help you if you have a site that you trust and that have up to date odds on all teams in real-time. If you do have these things then all you must do is see what the odds are for your team and place your bet, it is as easy as that.
