The number of betting markets in the industry is huge. So, choose/mix them wisely for a great outcome but never forget about your bankroll management. Here are some of the most important ones.

<h2>To Qualify</h2><p>The bookies are giving you the possibility to bet outright in the “To Qualify” market, which means you back a team to advance to the next round of the competition/tournament regardless of how they do it. Of course, you can place your bets in the regular time, extra time or penalty shootouts. This type of bet can be considered a futures bet. For example, you want to place a bet on Manchester United to qualify in the Champions League knock-out stages. In this case they need to have a top-2 group finish. As they are already 2nd in the standings with 4 points they are priced at just 1.3 with <a href=";a=87e126f9-4229-4364-9464-7fbff2763146">WilliamHill</a>. You can use this type of bet in the elimination stages as 2 teams are drawn to face each other is a 1-legged or 2-legged match.</p><p> </p><h2>Win To Nil</h2><p>This betting type is a great option if you’re using stats when placing your bets. "Win to Nil" is the same as Win and BTTS No, so always check the odds for both options because one of them is always better. Always search for the best defensive teams like Atletico Madrid or Juventus. The 2 sides are well-known for their rock-solid defense conceding a small amount of goals per season most of all when playing in front of their fans. This weekend Atletico Madrid are playing home against Real Sociedad. They conceded just 1 goal in 4 home matches this term and they are likely to keep another clean sheet. A straight home win is priced at 1.53 with <a href=";a=32b59d0e-2bfb-43ac-987d-fd24429abae0">Betfair</a>, but if you choose the Win to Nil option you can get better odds. <a href=";a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f">Bet365</a> is offering 2.3 for this option so for our bet to be a winner we need Atletico Madrid to earn the three points without conceding.</p><p> </p><h2>Winning Margin</h2><p>As the name suggests, this betting market requires you to estimate the winning margin of the match, regardless of which side will be victorious. There are also options for a draw match with goals or the game to end goalless. Let’s say we want to place a bet on Tottenham vs Manchester City and we believe that the winning margin will be 2 goals which is priced at 3.8 with <a href=";a=8737f02d-3242-44da-81a6-d0ca444a746b">BetWay</a>. But you can also predict the winner and the winning margin. Manchester City to win by two goals is priced at 5.0 with <a href=";a=bced0cf5-be5d-40a4-8446-02910689b2b5">PaddyPower</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Penalty/Missed Penalty</h2><p>Penalties are often the subjects of heated discussions after the matches. Why did the ref give it? Was it clear? Was it inside the box? The bookies have you covered so you can bet on a penalty being awarded, scored or missed. This weekend Barcelona will host Real Madrid in the 1st El Clasico of the season. Penalty in match is priced at 3.0 with <a href=";a=87e126f9-4229-4364-9464-7fbff2763146">WilliamHill</a>. Barcelona to score a penalty is priced at 6.5 with <a href=";a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f">Bet365</a> while Real Madrid are priced at 9 with the same bookie. The odds are much higher for a missed penalty. If you think that Barcelona will miss a penalty kick the odds offered are at 19.0 with Bet365. Football is unscripted so it’s smart to try some high odds from time to time.</p>
