Floorball wagers are organized in a rather simple manner. The great majority of bets fall into one of two categories: straight bets on the outcome of a match and futures bets on the outcome of a forthcoming tournament. We'll have a look at each to see how they operate.
Match winner bets
The straight bet on a match's winner is the most popular sort of floorball wager. You aim to properly guess the game's winner to win. The odds for each side, as well as the opportunity to wager on a draw match, are displayed on the floorball betting site in a match-winner bet. If your prediction is correct, the floorball betting odds will tell you how much you stand to win.
Consider an example from a recent match offered by a major bookmaker. The following was the match's description:
- Team 1 to win at 3.25
- Team 2 to win at 1.47
- Draw at 6.75
The number next to each outcome indicates how much money you may win for each unit wagered. If your prediction is true, all you have to do is multiply your desired wager amount by the entire reward.
With a $100 stake, for example:
- If you correctly predict Team 1 to win at 3.25, your total payout will be €325 with a net profit of €225.
- if you correctly predict Team 2 to win at 1.47, your total payout will be €147, with a net profit of €47.
- If you correctly predict the draw at 6.75, your total payout will be €675, with a net profit of €575.
Floorball futures bet
Floorball betting futures are simple once you understand how to bet on match-winner bets. The only real difference is that futures provide a comprehensive list of teams or countries expected to compete in a specific tournament soon. Floorball betting odds are assigned to each team depending on their assessed chance of winning.
It's your responsibility to guess which team will come in first. You'll win if you get it right. Your wager will be a loss if your chosen team does not finish first. Because there are so many options, futures are more difficult to win, but the payouts are also much higher on average.
Goal total markets are uncommon on floorball betting sites, although you may come across them on occasion. In a floorball totals wager, the bookmaker predicts the total number of goals scored by both teams in the match. For example, the total may be set at 11.5 goals by the bookmaker. You aim to determine whether the total score will be higher or lower than 11.5.
If your research indicates that this match will be low-scoring, you should take "the under" and hope for a low score. You will win the bet if the total number of goals scored is 11 or less. Similarly, if you believe the game will be high-scoring, you should pick "the over." If the combined total is 12 goals or more, you will win the wager.
