The options to bet on the 2018 World Cup are very broad and may even vary when comparing some betting houses with each other. To begin we must differentiate between the three types of popular sports bets: single bets, combined bets and system bets. Below we will make a brief explanation with examples of each, noting that the types of bets are not the same as the markets to bet. The latter are much more extensive and offer endless options for profit during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In the tips section we mentioned some of the most interesting markets to bet on the 2018 World Cup, but you should know that the alternatives are practically endless and that the content of the bookmakers varies in terms of events as well as markets and dues.
It’s about the simple bets. No matter which market we bet on, we choose a punctual selection and invest a certain amount of money in it. It is possible to make as many single bets as you want, but to keep them as simple they must be done individually. For example, we can bet on the Spanish victory against Iran, because Argentina beats to rest and in the end to Iceland, or because Germany reaches the semifinals. In all cases they are simple bets and to obtain the gross profit we must multiply the amount wagered by the quota. Assuming that we succeed the victory of Denmark over Australia with a share of 1.85, betting 4.00 euros we will get 7.40 euros (3.40 profit).
A combined bet is nothing more than a set of simple or simple bets. The minimum is two and the maximum is set by each house bets, the truth is that to win we must hit each of the selections. To give the possible win you have to multiply all the quotas with each other, which is the most attractive and tempting aspect of the combined bets. The more bets we include in our combined, the greater the potential benefit. But of course, as a counterpart we cannot omit that we are facing a very risky modality: because to increase the quota it is necessary to add selections and because it takes a single error to end all illusions.
The last sentence of the previous section leads us to system bets, ideal for those more cautious bettors and speculators. Essentially because it is a type of bet that admits errors, unlike the two detailed above. It consists of choosing a minimum of three bets (the maximum could be 8, although this depends on each operator), which will form a system and which will have to hit a certain number of moves. For example, in a 2/3 system we will win by matching at least two of the three bets. In this case, the money invested is divided into three (four, five or whatever) bets that shape the system. So, if we play for the victories of Spain against Portugal, Argentina against Iceland and Uruguay against Egypt we will not need the three results: if Spain and Argentina win, and Uruguay draw, we will also have won our bet.
