Soccer Corners Betting Details Guide – Markets and Odds Explained
In soccer there are many types of bets, of course, you can bet on the result – a win, draw or loss, the final score – 1-0, 2-0 etc., and who scores the goals – first and last scorer bets, for example “Ronaldo to score first”. However there is also a largely unknown market for “corners”.
What is the “Corners” market?
Punters familiar with soccer will know that during a match there are many different ways of re-starting a game when the ball goes out of play – throw ins, free kicks, goal kicks and corners. These days, the bookmakers count the corners and offer markets to punters who might want to gamble on the number of corners in a match.
The “corners” market works almost the same as the “result” and the “score” markets with almost as many different types of bets available from straight win / lose bets to handicap betting to live betting. The corners markets are offered on individual matches and can also be played during in-game viewing and betting.
The number of corners a team gets in the match, which team will get the most corners and which team will get the first or last corner of the match are all examples of some of the gambling that can be done.
What bets can I do?
Corner bets can be separated in to statistic bets, Match bets (corners per team), handicap bets and “Race” bets.
Team to have the first corner – Which team will have the first corner? Team A 5/4 Team B 4/7 No Corners 125/1
Team to have Last Corner – Which team will have the last corner? Team A 11/10 Team B 4/6 No Corners 125/1
Who will win the game in “Corners” (instead of “goals”!!) ? A standard win / lose “Final Result” bet
Team A has the most corners 9/4 or Team B has the most corners 4/9 or The two teams have an equal number of corners 13/2
