3-Way Betting Market (1 X 2)
This is the most popular and straightforward bet you can find. Every sport that has the possibility of a draw occurring has this market. In this market, you simply bet on the match winner. 1 represents the Home Team, 2 is for the Away Team and X is for the possibility of a draw.
Usually, this market lasts for 90 minutes in soccer or the entire duration of the game, depending on the sport, unless otherwise stated by the bookmakers.
Half Time-Full Time
This market is commonly seen on the NairaBET as Half-Time/Full-Time or HT/FT. In this type of bet market, you must correctly predict the outcome of both the Half Time and Full Time results to make any money from your bet.
In football, there are nine different options you can choose from, including Home-Home, Home-Draw, Home-Away, Draw-Home, Draw-Draw, Draw-Away, Away-Home, Away-Draw, Away-Away.
Don’t get it twisted. This betting market is also available in other sports, and is not exclusive to football alone.
Total Match Points
Just like goals are scored in football, points are scored in other games like the American Football, Rugby and Basketball. In this betting market, you’re required to predict the number of points that will be scored during a specific period in the game.
Because most of these games can run into overtime every now and then, you may find different varieties of this market. In some instances, you may only need to predict the total number of match points. In other instances, you may need to predict the total number of match points that will be scored both in normal time and in overtime too.
This market gives you the chance to predict the exact scoreline of a game. Just like in the “Total Match Points” market, there are also different varieties to this market. You can predict the full-time correct score or you can choose to predict the half-time correct score.
This market features options that cover almost every possible result. And even when your option of choice is not mentioned, you can find them in “Other Score”
This market gives you the chance to back a select player to score in a given game. The most popular one is the “anytime scorer”, and to win this bet, your selected player must score at least one goal during full time.
There are other options as well which includes backing the player to score the first goal or the last goal.
To win money from this market, you need to predict accurately the range of goals that will be scored in a game. This market offers you a lot of ranges to choose from including: 0-1 goals, 2-3 goals, 4-6 goals, 7 or more goals.
We’ve been able to touch on some of the betting options available to you as a NairaBET customer. In the coming weeks, we will shed more light on many of the other betting options available on the betting platform.
