One of the easiest to understand bet types is “Money Line” (also known as Full Time Result or 1X2 Match Betting). A Money Line bet means you pick which team you think will either win or tie. In our example above, we have three choices by either picking 1 – Home) West Ham to win, 2 – Away) West Brom to win or X – Draw) West Ham to tie West Brom. In this example, we will pick West Ham to win, therefore we will click on the odds 1.556.

(4)Enter your bet amount
