Football sports betting involves a lot of creative propositions. Some involve group-stage matches under major football competitions. Many sportsbooks provide a range of distinctive and exciting betting propositions unique to the concept of group-stage matches. Here are 3 recommendable and innovative football propositions for group-stage football matches you must watch out for.
Proposition # 1: Highest Scoring Group
Just as there are propositions pertaining to the highest-scoring team in football competitions, sportsbooks also offer propositions that point out the highest scoring group. Since groups are divided evenly into teams, it makes sense to bet on how much points each group has produced during the intra-group round of the competition. Sportsbooks provide the relevant parameters on highest scoring group propositions, which make this particular proposition type even more interesting. Bettors only need to hope that their chosen groups’ teams will score the most points compared to the others.
Proposition # 2: Team Group Points
After every end of group stages of football competitions, there are definitely teams per group that are bound to stand out from the rest of their group mates. Thus, some sportsbooks have provided football odds pertaining to the points teams have gathered after intra-group rounds of their respective competitions. Sportsbooks provide specific numbers (representing theoretical team points) to propositions as basis for the bets. Based on those numbers, the following propositions can be provided by sportsbooks based on the points of a certain team:
– Over (the provided number)
– Under (the provided number)
– Inclusive (of a provided number range)
– Exact (provided number)
Depending on the proposition that they have betted on, bettors can win if their chosen team gains points that satisfy the propositions they have picked after the group stage of a competition. Given the number of available betting propositions referring to team group points, bettors have more choices under such kind of football propositions.
Proposition # 3: Group Straight Forecast
In every group stage of all football competitions, there are always 1st and 2nd placers per group that are going to emerge. Those teams are bound to compete against other group placers in the next higher round (usually quarter-finals). Some bettors bet on football propositions which pertain to such aspect. Sportsbooks provide propositions on which teams per group will emerge as 1st and 2nd placers. In that case, you can place a football bet based on the teams per group that will continue on to the round succeeding the group stage – that is, if your sportsbook allows for such betting option.
