What does draw no bet mean in soccer?

"Draw No Bet" in soccer betting is a market that eliminates the possibility of a draw. It allows bettors to wager on either the home team or the away team to win. If the selected team wins, the bettor wins the bet. However, if the match ends in a draw, the stake is refunded, and the bet is voided, resulting in neither a win nor a loss for the bettor.

What is btts in soccer betting?

"BTTS" in soccer betting stands for "Both Teams to Score." It's a popular betting market where you wager on whether both teams involved in a match will score at least one goal each within the regulation time of the game. If both teams score during the match, the bet is successful, regardless of the final result (win, lose, or draw).

What does pk mean in soccer betting?

In soccer betting, "PK" stands for "pick'em" or "pick." It signifies a type of two-way wager where the betting line is at +0 or -0, indicating that the teams are viewed as evenly matched by oddsmakers. Betting on PK means there's no handicap or advantage given to either team, and the bettor is essentially choosing the team they believe will win the match outright.

What does spread mean in betting?

In betting, the term "spread" typically refers to the point spread, a handicap given by oddsmakers to balance the perceived strength between two teams in a game. It's a margin of victory applied to each team to create an equal betting field. Betting against the spread involves wagering on whether a team will win or lose by more or fewer points than the spread assigned by oddsmakers. For instance, if Team A has a -5.5 spread, they must win by six or more points for a bet on them to win, while Team B with a +5.5 spread would need to win outright or lose by five or fewer points for a bet on them to win.
