EFL Championship Bets

Soccer may be a low-scoring sport, but there are quite a few ways to place a bet on a soccer match. Some require more explanation than others, particularly the Asian Handicap.

Moneyline Bet

The moneyline is a simple bet where you try and predict the final outcome of the match. Wager on either team to win or choose a draw with a 3-way moneyline bet.

You can also wager on either team to win with a 2-way moneyline bet. With this bet, a draw would result in a push and your bet being refunded.

3-Way Moneyline Bet

The 3-way moneyline is one of the most popular bets due to draws being a consistent outcome in soccer. You can choose either team to win or bet on a draw.

Sportsbooks determine the likelihood of each outcome along with how the public might bet on a matchup to set the odds. If the public takes more action on one of the three outcomes than expected, sportsbooks will adjust the odds accordingly.

3-Way Moneyline Example

Burnley -165
Sheffield United +450
Draw +330

In this example, Burnley winning is the most likely outcome. The minus sign before the odds indicates their status as the betting favorite. A minus before the number means you have to risk $165 to win $100.

A plus sign ahead of the odds indicates an underdog outcome. A bet on Sheffield United to win is the most unlikely result according to oddsmakers. A Sheffield United win would pay $450 on a $100 bet.

The odds for a draw in this case are +330, so bet $100 to win $330 in the event of a tie.

Note that 3-way moneyline odds can all have plus values. When this occurs, the favorite would be the lowest value.

In the following example, Luton Town is the +115 favorite. Middlesbrough is +250, so a Middlesbrough win is considered slightly less likely than a draw at +245.

Luton Town +115
Middlesbrough +250
Draw +245

2-Way Moneyline Bet (aka “Tie No Bet”)

As we touched on above, the 2-way moneyline bet means there are two outcomes instead of three. This bet takes the draw out of the equation, as you would get your initial bet amount back in case of a tie. Hence, this bet is also called a 2-Way Tie No Bet.

2-Way Moneyline Bet Example

Burnley -425
Sheffield United +310

Using the same game as our first 3-way moneyline example, you’ll see that you would have to risk a lot more to win the same amount on a bet for Burnley. That’s because a draw isn’t a losing outcome here.

Since a draw isn’t a negative for a bettor on the 2-way moneyline, you would have to risk more to back the favored team. In this case, it’s $425 on Burnley to win $100. If the match is a draw, you get your $425 bet back.

On the other side, you’re also protected against a draw by betting on Sheffield United. The payout for a Sheffield United win decreases to $310 on a $100 bet. Again, if the final result is a draw, you get your $100 bet back.

Possible Moneyline Outcomes
  • Derby County bettors risk $100 to win $200 at +200 odds. The implied probability for Derby County is 33.33%.
  • Blackburn Rovers bettors risk $100 to win $120 at +120 odds. The implied probability for Blackburn Rovers is 45.45%.
  • Draw bettors risk $100 to win $260 at +260 odds. The implied probability for Draw is 27.78%.

Totals Bet (Over-Under)

A totals bet is where oddsmakers set a specific number of goals to be scored in the match. You bet whether the final result will be over or under that number.

It’s important to note that the number set for a totals bet isn’t the number of goals oddsmakers think will be scored. Rather, it’s the number of goals oddsmakers think will cause equal betting on both sides of their line. This ensures a sportsbook doesn’t take too much of a loss on a certain result.

Totals Bet Example

Coventry City 2.5 o -110
Sunderland 2.5 u -110

Here, you would be betting on whether the total number of goals in this match will go over or under 2.5.

The -110 next to each number indicates the odds. You would need to bet $110 to win $100 in either case. Sometimes, oddsmakers will adjust the odds if they believe betting on one side will be heavier than the other.

You’ll notice that the odds here are the same for each side. In either case, you have to risk more than you can win. This $10 difference is called the vig or juice. Sportsbooks use losing bets to pay the winners.

When there’s an equal amount of betting on each side, the book gets a profit of $10 on each losing bet. Think of the vig as a service fee. It allows the sportsbook a better chance to profit and also ensures that your bet will be paid out in case you win.

Asian Handicap – Goal Line Bet (Soccer Point Spread)

The Asian handicap, or goal line bet, is placing a wager on the matchup with a point spread like a hockey puck line or baseball run line. Teams are typically favored by a half goal, but more lopsided matchups have been known to have spreads of 1.5 or 2.5 on the goal line.

Asian Handicap – Goal Line Bet Example

Blackburn Rovers -0.5 -110
Millwill +0.5 -110

In this example, a bet on Blackburn Rovers would only be successful if they win by 1 or more goals.

Betting on Millwill gives you two ways to win. If they win outright, you win. If the final result is a draw, you also win. That +0.5 goal line means Millwill can’t lose by more than 1 goal. It includes the possibility of a draw.

If the goal line were -1.5 in favor of Blackburn Rovers, the bet would only be a winner if they were to win the match by two or more goals.

Asian Handicap Split Bet (Split Goal Line Bet)

Asian handicap split lines, or split goal lines, are written in quarter goal increments of 0.25 or 0.75. Examples include 0.25, 0.75, 1.25 or 1.75.

Whenever you see a split line, you’re actually making 2 bets at once. Your wager will be equally split between the two closest half-line numbers with the same odds.

Asian Handicap Split Bet Example

Here’s how a $120 bet on West Bromwich with a -0.75 -120 Asian handicap split bet works.

West Bromwich -0.75 -120
Swansea City +0.75 +100

The closest half number below -0.75 is -1, so $60 goes for West Bromwich -1. The closest half number above -0.75 is -0.5. The other $60 goes to West Bromwich by -0.5.

The -120 odds is what determines your winning payout. Remember, a minus value is how much you risk to win $100. In this case, you are risking $120 total to win a $100 split between two different lines.

If both bets win, you get $50 for each totaling $100. If one wins and one pushes, you get $50 plus $60 refunded. And if both lose, you get $0.

Asian Handicap Split Bet Detailed Example

How much you win or lose on the Asian handicap split bet depends on the game’s final outcome. Here’s how your bet on West Bromwich -0.75 at -120 odds plays out.

West Bromwich wins by 2 or more goals
Both bets win. West Bromwich’s 2-goal victory is greater than each bet at -0.5 and -1.

The $120 bet to win $100 was split $60 each for West Bromwich -0.5 and West Bromwich -1. You win $50 each for a total of $100.

West Bromwich wins by 1 goal
West Bromwich by -0.5 wins, West Bromwich by -1 pushes. In this case, West Bromwich’s 1-goal victory is only greater than the bet at -0.5.

Your $120 bet to win $100 was split 2 ways for $60 on each line, -0.5 and -1. You win $50 on the bet against -0.5 and get $60 refunded for the push against -1. Total win: $50.

West Bromwich draws or loses outright
Both bets lose. A draw means a 0-goal margin of victory over Swansea City, and 0 is less than both -0.5 and -1.

You lose the $60 against -0.5 and the $60 against -1. Total loss: $120.

EFL Championship Major Events

The Championship serves as England’s second-tier soccer league. Its season runs from August to May of the following year. The top-two EFL Championship teams are automatically promoted to next season’s Premier League. The next four teams finishing third to sixth place participate in a four-team playoff.

The 3rd place team plays the 6th place team, and the 4th place team plays the 5th place team in a “two-legged tie“. Each team plays the other at their home field. The sum of each team’s goals in both legs equals the aggregate score. The team with the higher aggregate score advances to the playoff finals.

The playoff final is a single match held at Wembley Stadium. The winning team becomes the 3rd team to get promoted to next season’s Premier League.

Relegation

Teams finishing in the bottom three positions of the EFL Championship are relegated to EFL League One, England’s third-tier football league. They are replaced by the top-two EFL League One teams plus the winner of the playoffs, similar to how teams from the Championship are promoted to the Premier League.

When to Bet on EFL Championship Matches

Teams in the EFL Championship typically play once per week. Different betting strategies dictate whether to bet on a match early or wait until closer to kickoff.

If you are really familiar with the teams, you can check the early odds to determine if there is value on a particular outcome. Review how one team has played against the other, recent matchup results, and player injuries. Jumping on a bad line can give you great value before the oddsmakers fix their mistake.

Waiting for the public to play their hand can also create value on the back end. Using this strategy, take note of the opening lines when they come out and look for any changes.

EFL Championship Betting Odds For Fun

If you’re in it for fun and to win money, consider going against public opinion. Sometimes, contrarian betting can be profitable. Back a team that is getting more favorable odds closer to match time. This means that oddsmakers are trying to entice people to bet on that side because most of the public money is going in the other direction.

Waiting until closer to kickoff also gives you time for any late injuries or other news to develop that could affect the match result. So unless something really stands out to you when the lines for a match are released, you are likely better off waiting to place bets.

Do Your Research

It’s estimated that 70% of all of the sports betting that takes place worldwide is wagered on soccer. With that much action, you have to do your homework if you are to discover advantages.

Using a site that keeps track of team and player statistics each year, like ESPN, can help you discover trends. Watch the matches and follow the news. Pay close attention to injury reports, suspensions, head-to-head records, and team performance in their most recent matches. How a team performed in their last three or four matches could provide more useful information than their statistics for the entire season.

Also, know what home-field advantage is worth. In all leagues throughout the world, the majority of teams will perform better at home than on the road.

However, away teams do win. By following these statistics, it can be easier to pinpoint when a team will win on the road. Doing your research and knowing when to take an away team can lead to big wins since the oddsmakers will typically give a bump to the home team.

Exploit Public Bias

Use public biases to increase the value of your bets. Given that 70% of all sports bets in the world are placed on soccer, you can be sure that a great many of them are being made on the favorite team to win.

In the EFL Championship, the most popular teams garner most of the betting action. As a result, oddsmakers will nudge odds in favor of teams opposing these clubs. A bet on an opposing team may offer higher value, especially if you determine they have a real chance to win.

Another popular public bias is on the totals bet. Casual bettors like scoring and want to root for goals. That means they gravitate towards taking the over. However, if your research suggests a lower number of goals than the current totals odds, grab the value that comes with betting on the under.
