I'd like to share with you a few of my favorite bet types.
What I'm doing usually is to have 2 different bet types for 1 match, so my first combination of 2 bet types is to bet for the draw and for odd total of goals.
You may find draw odds from 3+ and odd total of goals from 2+, 1 of the 2 bets loses and the other wins for an overall win, just do the calculations to see how much you should wager on each bet selection.
You could lose both only from scores such as 2-0, 0-2, 3-1, 1-3, 4-0, 0-4...etc
My second combination is to back a strong team to win without conceding any goal, the particular bet type is: "win to nil" and the second bet selection is to bet for both teams to score.
The odds about these 2 bet types might vary significantly depending on the teams, do your research in order to find the proper pair of teams for the particular bet combination.
You could lose both only if the strong team fail to score for the whole duration of the match.
My third combination of bets is 1st half over 1.5 goals and half with most goals to be the 2nd, in this case you could win both of the bets if till the half time there are 2 or more goals and during the 2nd there are 3+ more goals.
Usually one of the 2 bets loses, for example if the over 1.5 goals for 1st half loses it means that there was 1 or none goals and in order to win the other bet you need at least 1 or 2 goals on the 2nd half.
You can find odds around 3 for over 1.5 goals on the 1st half and 2+ for 2nd half to be with more goals.
The possibilities to lose both of the bets are: 1st half 0 goals and 2nd half 0 goals (0-0 final score) or 1st half 1 goal and 2nd half 0 or 1 goal.
For the lovers of live betting, I recommend you to bet over 1.5 total goals and when the 1st goal occurs (regardless the scoring team) use the option early cash out, in such case you are getting paid less than the original odds of over 1.5 goals but you are "locking" a profit with just 1 goal.
This bet option is not available to all bookmakers and odds may vary significantly depending on the time which the 1st goal is going to occur, the earlier is the better.
