How to read football odds for new players

To help make online football betting easier, especially for new members who are unfamiliar with how to read football odds, we will share a guide on how to place bets in the Sports section of the online entertainment website Rồng Hổ. For additional strategies, consider using 1x2 soccer tips . Let's start learning!

Symbols and Numbers to Know When Reading Football Odds

To read football odds, you first need to understand the numbers in the betting table for each match. After logging in, on the menu of products supported by Rồng Hổ such as: M Sports, Sports, Slots, Fish Shooting, Cock Fighting, and Number Games, you access the SPORTS product to display the betting interface (betting odds table) as shown below.

We will use the match between Al Duhail and Al Sadd Doha as an example to explain the betting odds indicators.

The first column shows the date and time of the match. Next are the names of the two teams. Note that the team name displayed in red is the handicapping team (the favorite or upper team). For example, in the match between APOEL Nicosia vs FK Qarabag, APOEL Nicosia is the handicapping team and FK Qarabag is the underdog. If both team names are in black, the bookmaker rates the teams as equal strength with a zero handicap (even odds).

The next 6 columns display full match/first half odds, meaning you can bet on the entire match or just the first half. To see more betting types, members can click on the arrow on the right.

The numbers in the table: 0.83, –0.92, –0.68, 0.82, –0.77, etc., are the payout rates you receive when you win a bet. For details on how to calculate payout rates, please refer to section '3. How to Calculate Online Betting Odds.'

How to Read Football Odds

In general, reading football odds is relatively simple. In this article, we will provide examples of 3 basic types of odds displayed on the main betting interface: Full Match Odds (Asian Handicap), Over/Under, and 1X2 (European odds). Here’s how to read each type, along with premier league predictions to help guide your betting strategy:

a. Full Match Odds (Handicap, Asian Handicap)

As you can see, the bookmaker offers 3 handicap rates, the top rate (0-0.5) is the main handicap. Details and how to read each type of handicap are as follows:

Quarter-Ball Handicap 0-0.5 (¼ Handicap): The favorite team gives the underdog less than half a goal. The outcomes are:

If the favorite team wins: Betting on the favorite wins, betting on the underdog loses.

If the favorite team loses: Betting on the favorite loses, betting on the underdog wins.

If it’s a draw: Betting on the favorite loses half the bet, betting on the underdog wins half the bet.

Draw No Bet (0 Handicap): The 0 handicap appears when the teams are equally matched. The outcomes are:

If the team you bet on wins: You win the bet.

If it’s a draw: Your stake is returned.

If the team you bet on loses: You lose the bet.

Half-Ball Handicap (0.5 Handicap): The favorite team gives the underdog half a goal. The outcomes are:

If the favorite team wins: Betting on the favorite wins.

If the favorite team loses or it’s a draw: Betting on the underdog wins.

b. How to Read Over/Under Odds

With this type of bet, you have two options:

Over (Tài): If the total number of goals is equal to or greater than the bookmaker’s number, you win.

Under (Xỉu): If the total number of goals is less than the bookmaker’s number, you win.

For example:

Over/Under 2.5-3 (also known as 2.75 or 2 3/4):

Total goals > or = 4: Betting on Over wins, betting on Under loses.

Total goals = 3: Betting on Over wins half, betting on Under loses half.

Total goals < or = 2: Betting on Over loses, betting on Under wins.

Over/Under 3:

Total goals > or = 4: Betting on Over wins, betting on Under loses.

Total goals = 3: Bet is returned.

Total goals < or = 2: Betting on Over loses, betting on Under wins.

Over/Under 2.5:

Total goals > or = 3: Betting on Over wins, betting on Under loses.

Total goals < or = 2: Betting on Over loses, betting on Under wins.

c. 1X2 Odds (Win-Draw-Loss or European Odds)
