Online Spread Betting

Spread betting became very popular a few years back and gave the very brave the opportunity to either win or lose big.

Simply explained on any market, for example a one day cricket match, you might fancy England to score a lot of runs, the Spread firm will offer a spread say 230-245 runs and you decide to buy or sell based on your judgement.

Extending this example, let's also say that in this match you believe the prevailing conditions will see batsmen struggle and bowlers excel, you sell at 230. If England score 200 you win 30 times your stake, however if England put in a strong performance and score 290 you lose 60 times your stake.

Spread betting works for all of the major sports, such as football on the number of goals in a game or favourites at the Cheltenham Festival and so on. The betting site takes their profit by the middle of the spread. Spread betting also works the same for in running.

Spread betting has some significant benefits when compared to other forms of betting:

  • Your involvement lasts all the way through to the last minute.
  • The more you're right, the more you win and vice versa.
  • You can close bets or open new ones at any time during live events.
  • You can back teams or individuals to perform well or badly.
  • You can oppose favourites without nominating who will beat them.
