Choosing a football betting site can be a difficult thing to do. There are many factors that you have to weigh up before you make a final decision, simply because there is so much competition between the online betting sites. Decisions must be made based on site presentation, usability, range of markets, features offered and quality of football betting odds.
Before you decide, you will want to consider what kind of football you are going to bet on. If you simply want English Premier League matches then you needn’t go for a site that contains comprehensive information on all matches from around the world. However, if you want an expansive choice, then go for a site like Paddy Power or Ladbrokes, which both offer markets covering international leagues.
If you want to watch a match you have money on, then you need to find a site that streams games live. Some matches are covered by licensing laws, and therefore can only be broadcast by networks such as Sky. However, some are streamed live through online bookmakers such as Bet365. With superb picture quality that is improving all the time, this is the ideal way to follow the progress of your wagers.
What’s more, this will also allow you to watch while betting in-play. Online bookmakers like Betfair and Totesport offer punters the chance to make bets as events unfold, meaning considerable profits can be returned on seemingly unlikely scenarios.
Furthermore, take a look at the markets offered by different sites. Make sure your choice includes usual football betting opportunities like the standard win/lose outcome, half-time and full-time variations, niche options such as anytime goalscorer and, of course, the classic accumulator.
The majority of established sites will offer favourable football betting odds, seeing as they will not benefit if customers do not return. Betting exchanges such as Betfair may well have better odds than traditional bookmakers, due to the fact that you will be placing a wager against another punter, for whom long odds always suit.
Finally, make sure your football betting site is one that you can understand and is easy to use. All the sites mentioned above, plus others such as 888, are trustworthy and have a variety of features that make the customer experience all the more satisfying. For example, all major football betting sites accept a range of different fund deposit and withdrawal options and credit cards.

As always, do your research to understand the underlying betting stats that are likley to determine the outcome of a betting market.
