How to bet on Premier League soccer in Maryland

There are plenty of ways you can bet on Premier League games or even the outcome of an entire season. Each team in the EPL plays 38 games during a season, and each game will have dozens of available bets.

The most popular option is the moneyline. Since a soccer game can end in a draw, you’ll find a three-way money line betting option that consists of bets on the home team’s victory, the away team’s victory, and a tie. Certain sportsbooks will also offer the draw-no-bet option, where you bet on one side to win and get your stake back if the game ends in a draw.

Soccer betting also allows for double chance bets, where you can bet on two of the three outcomes. Another popular bet is the over/under, where you wager on the total goals in the game. The sportsbook will set a line, say 2.5, and your aim is to predict whether the total goals will be over or under that line.

Many people also like betting on the halftime/full-time market. Here, you need to predict the outcome of the first half and the full 90 minutes. For example, you can bet on Manchester United winning against Leeds and on the game being tied halfway through.

If you really want to increase the difficulty and try to win at higher odds, you can take a shot at a correct score bet. Sportsbooks will allow you to guess dozens of scores, from the realistic ones, like 2-1 and 1-1, to the unlikely ones, such as 7-1 and 4-3.

Some other interesting bets include the number of corners, number of bookings (yellow cards and red cards), halftime result, both teams to score (GG), and winning margin.

Each of these bets will be available before and during the game. If you opt for in-game betting, you should know that timing is of the essence, as odds change quickly, depending on what’s happening on the pitch.

Also, in-game EPL betting will introduce you to additional props that aren’t available before the game. These can include things like guessing the next goal scorer, someone to score a goal in the next 10 minutes, the correct time of the next goal, and so on.

On the other end of the spectrum, you’ll find futures bets. For the EPL, the main futures wager is “to win outright,” which involves guessing the league champion. You can also try to predict which teams will end up being relegated. Both of these bets will be available before and during the season at sportsbooks such as Caesars Maryland, DraftKings MD, and FanDuel MD online, among others.

Premier League player props and futures

Instead of betting on the entire EPL game or its segments, you can prop bet on individual players.

The main player prop market is for goal scorers. Here, you can bet on whether a certain player will score a goal during the game. You can also wager on whether it’s the first goal, last goal, or any goal, while some sportsbooks might give you the option to bet for a player to score multiple goals.

You can also find markets like scorecast (betting on a scoring player and the correct game score), wincast (betting on a scoring player and the correct outcome), and timecast (betting on when a player will score his first goal).

Every game in the Premier League has a Man of the Match, decided via postgame voting, and you can bet on that too. This does not necessarily need to be someone who scored a goal, but it usually is. Other player props include the player to be booked, player to be sent off, and over/unders on player shots on target, tackles, assists, and passes.

Finally, you can also bet on a player to win the Player of the Season award, while some sportsbooks might also offer betting on who wins the Golden Boot (top goal scorer during the season), Golden Glove (best goalkeeper), and Young Player of the Season.

Soccer betting tips for EPL

If Premier League betting seems intimidating, here are a few tips to consider before poring over the soccer betting odds and placing your EPL bets:

  • Follow recent form: The Premier League season is long, and it’s quite normal for teams to experience ups and downs. Check how the teams have done recently, and if there are any trends. Also, check to see if they show any signs of reversing.
  • Consider the matchups: Overall standings can sometimes be deceiving and not a perfect indicator of how two teams match up against each other. Maybe Team A currently has more points than Team B, but Team B has won the last four games against Team A. Furthermore, Team B might not be that good overall but is playing well on its home pitch. Or its defensive setup could be ideal for stopping Team A’s attackers.
  • Factor in the fatigue: The EPL schedule can sometimes be brutal. Top teams need to play 38 games while also competing in continental competitions and domestic cups. Things tend to be especially tiring around New Year’s when several rounds take place over just a couple of weeks. Teams that played fewer games and had more home games with easier opponents might feel more rested and perhaps have an advantage.
  • Go odds shopping: Never settle for the first odds you see. They might look good, but what if you can find even better Premier League betting lines at another betting site? With the sheer number of sportsbook sites in Maryland, finding the best possible odds for a particular EPL game shouldn’t be an issue.
