That said, I know you are now more than ready to place your bets. History always serves you right. This is why we make sure that we provide you with some information to familiarize yourself with your team. This wisdom is what makes you a football elite before your friends. In the next section, I will give you some tips on the types of bets you can consider placing on any EPL match.

Types of bets for the EPL

1. Anytime, first and last scorer.
Usually, this bet can be placed on any team or individual. Wise bettors normally lookout for players seeking to make early or late goals in the match. Placing your bet of certain players or an individual is preferred as a more interesting way to place a bet on the EPL.

2. Goal times
This bet is made on a player expected to score within a specific timeframe during the game. The bettor chooses a timeframe and a player expected to score. Usually, these time frames are halves, thirds, sixths, and ninths of the 90 minutes of the match. Many bettors choose to bet on teams rather than players.

3. Full-time and Half time
For a punter to get their payout, both the half-time and fulltime results must be correct. Bettors tend to bet on the more competitive teams in this kind of bet. This is because the odds of the winning team to score after halftime are much higher than those of both teams winning.

4. Win-win and win-nil
This kind of bets involves both teams scoring. Usually, sportsbooks offer accumulators backing several matches to end up in a win. These accumulators can be win to nil or win to win.

5. Under or over
In this bet, sportsbooks set the total number of goals that a team should not exceed for the punter to get their payout. For instance, if a match ends up in a draw, a punter who placed their bet for “under 0.5” receives their payout. Also if a match ends up as 3-1 goals, a punter who placed a bet for “over 3.5” gets their payout.
