The world of betting has evolved so much in the last ten years, and so has the range of markets available to bet on. Whereas traditionally you would back a team to win, lose or draw, bookmakers now offer hundreds of different markets you can choose from. This allows you to use your knowledge of the sport to your advantage. Picking a betting market that is both enjoyable and profitable is a key component of your Gaelic Sports betting strategy.
In this article, we look at the most popular bets you can place on Gaelic Sports and why you should consider placing them.
Draw No Bet
This type of betting is a popular bet in Gaelic sports and is very simple to place and understand. If you back a team in the Draw No Bet market, your bet will succeed if the team you back are victorious. However, if the game is a draw, your stake money will be refunded.
To Score First Goal
Another simple but very popular type of betting is predicting which team will score the first goal. There are just three options for this bet. The home side will score first, the away team will score first, or the game will be without a goal scorer. This type of betting is popular in live betting, which will be discussed later.
Sometimes it’s pretty obvious that a team is going to win, it’s just a question of by how many. The winning margin bet helps you predict exactly that. Not only can you bet on the overall gap between the two teams, you can also go one step further by declaring which team will win.
First Scoring Play
In this bet, you are predicting how the first points of the game will be scored. You have three choices in Gaelic football. It can either be points scored from play, points scored from a placed ball, or a goal can be scored. You are also required to decide which team will score the first points.
