If you are an ardent follower of volleyball and know the inside-out of the sport, then betting on
this sport can be your point of interest. If you love volleyball, making some money through intelligent betting is an outstanding idea.
But things are not as easy as it sounds. You must know some fundamental aspects and features of sports betting, especially if you want to chase success in this arena. We are here to discuss the basics of volleyball betting and the types of bets you can place. Even if you are an amateur in this space, you can start with a bang with the help of the right knowledge.
Betting on Various Volleyball Events
Volleyball may not have several international events all year long as cricket or football, but no one can deny some of the famous tournaments and events played. There is undoubtedly a considerable fanbase for volleyball that ranks the sport sixth among the most popular sports in the world.
You can bet on various national volleyball tournaments, international club tournaments, international friendlies, and leagues. And apart from that, who can forget the significant world events. The real rush of volleyball betting can be observed during the World Cup, the Olympics, and the World Championships organised by the International Volleyball Federation.
You can bet on men’s and women’s national and international volleyball events.
Volleyball Match Betting
The simple and minimal wager you can place on a match (volleyball, in this case) is known as a match bet. Here you try your luck on the game’s result; by predicting the final winner.
Bookmakers make an idea of the team likely to win more, so they will offer lower bets on the probable winner team. This means you will end up winning less if you place your bets on them. On the other hand, if you are convinced that the underdog team will come out as a winner and bet on them, you have the chance to win more if they win. Always go for the best odds as it enhances your chance of winning.
Point Spread Method of Betting in Volleyball
Point spread betting is also known as handicap betting, where the underdog team immediately has a virtual advantage at the start of the game. In this way, the team considered the favourite must win by a specific margin. Point spreading hence gives equal odds for both the participating teams.
So even if the underdog team loses by a narrow margin, they are supposed as the winner in betting. For instance, in a volleyball game, the odds are set that Brazil will win at least by a margin of 6 points. They succeed but with only a margin of 3 points against Great Britain. In this case, Great Britain will be considered the winner as per the betting norms set beforehand.
‘The Totals’ in Sports Betting
One can place a wager on a guess of the total number of points that the playing teams can score. Here, the winners or losers of the game do not play a role, but the points scored by them play a significant part. Suppose you are betting on Brazil against Russia for a volleyball game, and you guess that they will score above 70 points, then the betting results will depend on the scores scored by Brazil.
This is an increasingly popular betting option, and the number is fixed in a way so that the options provide equal or similar odds to the players.
What Is Set Betting in Volleyball?
This is also known as part betting, which is based on a specific set’s probable outcome during a volleyball match. The bet is only applied to a particular set, and the results of that set, such as points scored by the teams, indicate the conclusions of the bet.
For instance, you bet that the Netherlands will win the first set against France in a volleyball match, and if it happens, you are the winner of that bet. Set betting is becoming extremely popular as it is very engaging and exciting.
Volleyball Future Bets
There is another type of famous bet in sports known as future bets. Here you have the opportunity to bet on the results of a specific volleyball event or tournament, even before the start of it. For example, you can bet on the United States to win gold at the Olympics even before the beginning of the world sporting event. Here, the odds of some teams can even be more than a thousand dollars.
The Ending Note
Volleyball can be highly engaging if you have the correct basic information about this sport and sports betting. Volleyball is ranked 6th in the list of the world’s most famous sports in recent times. It is indeed a very competitive structure, but if you know the right tricks, you can seriously do wonders for yourself betting on this sport.
