Here Are The Top 3 Easiest Football Bets to Win

The end goal of football betting is to make profit. 

Even though this is obvious, a large percentage of football bettors do not only bet to make profit but they also bet to be “right!”

Yes, most people place bets so they can say “Yes, I was right” 

This “I was right” syndrome is what allows the house to always win and the bookies to always have an edge coupled with the fact that they have the odds stacked up in their favour.

But, there is a way to gain an edge and advantage over the Bookies.


In this post, we will take a look at:


The way to beat the Bookies is to treat football betting as a serious thing and to only focus on the end goal which is “Profit”.

No more betting based on impulse, emotions or your personal feelings about a team.

The main focus is to win more bets and make profit and this is why this post is a very important one.

We have gathered some of the easiest football bets to win, the reasoning behind them and final results!

But before we go ahead…

Easiest Football Bets to Win

How Do You Define An Easy Bet To Win?

What do I really mean by an “easy bet to win”?

Before we go into the post fully, I am not talking about matched betting or back or lay bet matching, arbitrage betting, or double betting where people profit from the free bets and incentives offered by bookmakers.

I am talking about actual football betting markets offered by bookies that have the best probability and potential of winning (if done the right way)

So, what are the easiest football bets to win? 

Top 3 Easiest Football Bets to Win

1. Over or Under Goals.

The Over and Under betting market is one of the most popular markets offered by almost every bookie.

When I started football betting over 10 years ago, I was surprised when I figured out that I could place bets in the Over and Under market, I always thought I could only place bets on a team to win or lose.

The principle of the Over or Under bet is that you are placing a bet on whether or not there will be more or less than a particular amount of goals in a specific match.

One of the reasons why this bet is easy to win is because the winner or loser of a match has no effect on your bet and you have lots of options for Over and Under bets you can place a wager on.

Most bookies start from 0.5 Goals Up to 6.5 goals depending on the match and they allow you to bet on either Under/Over.

Examples of Over & Under Goals.

Today (May 13th 2021)  in Denmark there is a match between OKS v Marienlyst and in Netherlands, there is another match between Ajax v VVV-Venlo 

In both matches, I want to place a bet that the match will end in more than 2 goals (which means Over 2.5, i.e I will win if there are 3 goals or more in the match)

Here is a screenshot of my proposed stake before the match kicks off.

My stake is £50 with a return of £85 if both games end in 3 goals or more.

Over 2.5 goals predictions

After the end of both matches, the results are:

OKS 5  :  Marienlyst 3

Ajax 3 : VVV-Venlo 1

Over 2.5 goals footy amigo result 2

 

So, both games ended with Over 2.5 goals. That was a WIN for me! 

The Under/Over Goals can be a very easy and profitable market to bet on but of course you need to have the right information.

How Was I Able to Pick Over 2.5 Winners?

So, how was I able to pick the right games that ended up being over 2.5?

Its quite simple.

I created a simple Pre-Match Alert with certain rules and conditions on FootyAmigo.com.

The rules and conditions are: 

Games Played by Home and Away Team = 10 games and above.

Home Team’s Over 2.5 Goals Percentage  = More than 60%

Average Goals of Both Teams (in the amount of games played above)  = 2.5 Goals and above

Home Team Scored 0.5 Goals above Per Game (when playing at Home) Percentage = More that 85%

Away Team Scored 0.5 Goals above Per Game (when playing Away) Percentage = More that 65%

Probability of Over 2.5 Goals = More than 60%

With the above rules, Footy Amigo sent me matches all day that matched those conditions.

So, I did not really have to spend hours doing research or analysis.

I created the alert and went by my day and Footy Amigo did all the heavy lifting that would have taken me so much time and brain power to do.

The OKS v Marienlyst and Ajax v VVV-Venlo games were just 2 out of many games I was alerted of.

I got the alert and then created a betslip on Bet365 with the games.

And because I have created that alert, I will receive matches everyday that fits those criterias.

2. Over & Under Corners.

Goals are good but corners are better.

Why? Because corners are way much easier to come by in football than goals.

Compared to other sports, Football is a low scoring type of sport.

So, instead of betting based on amount of goals that will or not be scored in a match, you can bet on the amount of corners that will be awarded in a match.

We have all seen games that ends with either 1 goals or none but have 10,13, 15 or even more corners right?

But its very rare to see games where there are no corners and a lot of goals.

Just like betting Over/Under in the goals market, the Over/Under corner market also works the same.

So, you will be able to place bets from Over/Under 4 corners up to Over/Under 23 corners in some matches.

There is a lot of room for corners, so bookies provide lots of options.

Examples of Over/Under Corners.

Today (May 13th 2021) there are 3 matches in Netherlands Eredivisie FC Emmen vs SC Heerenveen  and Ajax vs VVV-Venlo.

I am going to be placing a proposed stake of £50 that all 3 matches will have 9 or more corners (i.e. Over 8.5 corners)

Here is a screenshot of my proposed stake before the match kicks off.

My stake is £50 with a return of £101 if all games end in Over 8.5 corners.

Over 8.5 corners betting tip footy amigo

So, both games ended with Over 8.5 Corners.  That was a WIN for me! 

FC Emmen – SC Heerenveen= 10 Corners total.  (Crosscheck fulltime result on Sofascore) 

Ajax vs VVV-Venlo.  = 13 Corners Total (Crosscheck fulltime result on Sofascore)

How Was I Able to Pick Over 8.5 Corner Winners?

I personally love and prefer the Corner market than the goals market (this is my personal preference)

That being said – The Under/Over Corner market can be a very easy and profitable market to bet on but of course you need to have the right information.

So, how was I able to pick the right games that ended up having over 8.5 corners?

Its quite simple.

I created a simple Pre-Match Alert with certain rules and conditions on FootyAmigo.com.

The rules and conditions are: 

Games Played by Home and Away Team = 10 games and above.

Home & Away Team’s Over 7.5 Corners Per Game Percentage = More than 70%

Home Team’s Over 7.5 Corners Per Game Percentage (When playing at Home)  = More than 70%

Away Team’s Over 7.5 Corners Per Game Percentage (When playing Away)  = More than 70%

Home & Away Team’s Over 8.5 Corners Per Game Percentage = More than 60%

The basic idea behind the conditions and rules above is that I want to be sent games that where the teams involved get alot of corners.

With the above rules, Footy Amigo sent me matches all day that matched those conditions.

So, I did not really have to spend hours doing research or analysis.

I created the alert and went by my day and Footy Amigo did all the heavy lifting that would have taken me so much time and brain power to do.

The FC Emmen – SC Heerenveen and Ajax v VVV-Venlo games were just 2 out of many games I was alerted of.

I got the alert and then created a betslip on Bet365 with the games.

And because I have created that alert, I will receive matches everyday that fits those criterias.

3. Live Match Under/Over.

This market operates exactly as the Over/Under goals market but instead of placing bets before the match starts, you actually place bets while the match is live!

Why would you do this?

Well, when a match is live, its very easy to see or predict the overall outcome of the match based on events that has occurred or is occurring in a match.

Here is a cold fact- statistically speaking, the football betting markets that offers the best odds are none other than In-Play bets.

This is because unlike Pre-Match odds, bookies are slow to set the odds on In-Play games.

So, we can take advantage of this.

Example of In-Play Over/Under.

Today (May 13th 2021), I placed a proposed Under 2.5 Goals bet on the match Operario FC MS vs Comercial MS (in Brazil State Championship) and a Under 10 Corners bet on the match B68 Toftir vs Vikingur Gota. 

Here is a screenshot of the proposed bet as the match was live.

Under 2.5 Goals on  Operario FC MS vs Comercial MS

My stake is £50 with a return of £162

Here is a screenshot of the proposed bet as the match was live.

Under 10 Corners bet on the match B68 Toftir vs Vikingur Gota 

My stake is £50 with a return of £86.

The Final Result.

So, in the Operario FC MS vs Comercial MS match, the game ended as 1:1.  That was a WIN for me! 

 (You can Crosscheck fulltime result on Sofascore) 

So, B68 Toftir vs Vikingur Gota match, the game ended with 9 Corners.  That was a WIN for me! 

 (You can Crosscheck fulltime result on Stakers.com) 

How Was I Able to Pick Over 8.5 Corner Winners?

The Over/Under bets on Live and In-Play games can be a very easy and profitable market to bet on but because they are live, you need the right information at the right time.

You cannot afford to be slow or spend time going through live games on your bookie’s website, doing this will make you loose opportunities!

So, how was I able to pick the above games?

Its quite simple.

I simply had to create In-Play alerts on FootyAmigo.com

For the game where I placed an Over 2.5 Goals bet, the alert I created had these rules: 

Match Time = 64 Minutes

Shots on Target = Less Than 4

Goals of Home Team1

Goals of Away Team = 1

Red Card0

The basic idea behind the conditions and rules above is that I want to be sent live games where the teams are not very aggressive with shots on targets.

Why? because a game where there are loads of shots on target means there will lots of goals and games where there are less than 4 shots on target in the 64th minute, it tells me that the teams are not aggressive and the match will be a low scoring one.

With the above rules, Footy Amigo sent me live matches all day that matched those conditions.

So, I did not really have to do anything!

I created the alert and went by my day and Footy Amigo did all the heavy lifting that would have taken me so much time and brain power to do.

The Operario FC MS vs Comercial MS game was one of the many games that I was alerted of.

I got the alert and then decided that placing a Under 2.5 goals bet would be a good idea created a betslip on Bet365.

Now, for the game where I placed an Under 10 Corners bet, the alert I created had these rules:

Match Time = 30 Minutes

Shots on Target = Less Than 3

Corner = Less than 2

Goals of Home Team = 0

Goals of Away Team = 0

The basic idea behind the rules above is that I want to be alerted when there is a live match where the teams have low Shots on Target, very low corner count and the match has no goals yet and the match time is 30minutes.

My reasoning is that if a match is almost at the end of the first half and the corner count is less than 2 (meaning either 0 or 1 corner) with very low shots on target, it tells me that there might not be a lot of corners in the game.

The B68 Toftir vs Vikingur Gota match game was one of the many games that I was alerted of.

And because I have created that alert in my Footy Amigo account, I will receive matches everyday that fits those criterias.

I can then use the alerts to make informed betting decisions.

In Conclusion.

In this post, I  have covered the top 3 easiest football bets to win and also explained the reasoning behind games and matches I picked.

As stated in the beginning of the post, the end goal of football betting should be to make profit and profits can only be made when you place smart and well informed bets.

Examples of bets that are hard to win are: Correct Score, Odd or Even Goals and sometimes straight wins. I would personally advise to stick to bet strategies above if you want to consistently win and make profits.
