Among the most wagered sports, volleyball is one. A bookmaker will offer odds on a variety of aspects such as winning points, sets, or games. Volleyball is one of the most wagered sports in the world.
Match Winner Market
Biggest and the most open market, predicting a match winner is perhaps the most exciting thing for a punter. Betting in-play is a choice where one can make predictions that are more accurate because we can see the momentum of the game to guide us to a winner. However, the odds will become lower for such a wager.
Set Betting Market
A bookmaker might allow total betting in which the punters can bet on a number of sets won in a game. The bookmaker provides this figure (say 3.5). This kind of betting tells how close a match is rather than actual match results. So, this gives a good degree of flexibility.
Blocks and Spikes Market
A team that can set up spikes and uses blocks well will be a winner. To this extent, odds on a number of spikes and blocks will determine the outcome of a game. However, this is not necessary because a team might lose crucial points and a game though they spike and block well. Bookmakers will offer odds on the number of spikes and blocks.
This is the view of a whole game. A team that loses more points will lose a game. So, betting on the points will give you a good chance to make money. They might also offer first point won, first set win, and first service change. Depending on who is playing, one can bet on a team and make money.
If we have a future volleyball competition, we can bet on this result even if before the competition begins. This type of bet involves wagers such as which country will get Olympic Gold in the coming year. Odds offered will depend on how good the country is.
When one team is much more skilled than its opposing side, the bookmakers will offer a huge odd to level the playing field. For example, say that a team has a handicap of -2.5. A bet on them will only win when you overcome the handicap. The opposing team has +2.5, which means that a bet on this team will win easily. Even if they lose the match, the positive handicap will help your bet win.
Picking the bets makes or breaks the bank. If one goes with the crowd, one will not lose any money. However, to make more money, one has to go against the crowd.
