Understanding Scorecast and Wincast Football Bets
When people place football bets, they are either looking for many selections to put together in an accumulator, or something at a nice price to place a single bet on. If you are looking to place a single and you want to bet something at a good price then two bets you can look at are scorecast bets and wincast bets. These two are very similar, with just one difference between them and if you understand how one of them works then you will be able to place bets on both markets because they both work in exactly the same way.
These bets are hard to land and should be treated like fun bets on a game you are watching on TV, so don’t place huge stakes on them. Having said that you don’t really need to place huge stakes because the odds can be very big meaning you don’t need to place a lot of money on to win big from them.
What is a Scorecast Bet?
A scorecast bet is one single bet that consists of two different elements. The first element is that you must choose which player will score the first goal in the game. This can be difficult to do, but because you have this difficult option in the bet it means that the rewards on offer are very good. The second element of a scorecast bet is that you have to choose the correct score, which is another difficult element to do. This is the total bet, so you place one bet and you have to get right who will score the first goal, and what the correct score will be.
With two incredibly tough parts to this bet, landing a scorecast is not easy to do and it is unlikely that you will get more than one or two winners per season if you bet like this. However, with big odds on offer for those who manage to land a winner, should you get a couple of winning bets throughout the season, you will likely end the season in profit.
If you are looking for fun bets to place on TV games that you are going to watch then a scorecast is worthy of consideration. These bets are not easy to land, so don’t expect to win on a regular basis but what you can expect is a huge payout if you are lucky enough to land a winner during the season.
What is a Wincast Bet?
A wincast bet is very similar to a scorecast bet in the fact that is has two different elements involved. Just like the scorecast, the first element of a wincast bet is to choose which player will score the first goal in the game. This is not easy to do, and you must do it in both a scorecast and a wincast, so whichever one you go for you must guess right when it comes to who will hit the back of the net first. The second element involved in a wincast is what makes it different from a scorecast and that is that you need to pick which team will win, you don’t have to nominate a correct score.
This difference makes a wincast easier to land than a scorecast, although because of that the odds on offer will be lower. The odds are still very good because you are still having a good bet, but the odds won’t be as big as if you guessed the correct score and placed a scorecast. You may need to get three or four of these right to make a profit throughout the season, depending on the teams and scorers you are backing, but even with just a small handful of wins, you are going to be looking at a nice pickup.
Just like a scorecast, a wincast bet is a great way to get involved in a game you are watching on TV and it gives you the chance to win a good amount of money. Don’t expect to win every week, but by changing the second element to picking out who will win and not name a correct score, these bets are a lot easier to land and you should see yourself having more success. The odds won’t be as good, but with the chance to win more often that may appeal to those punters who like to see regular returns from the bookmakers.
Variations of this Bet
Alongside the two standard ways to use these bets, you will notice that there are variations on them both. One of the most common variations is to back the last goal scorer, instead of backing the first goalscorer, this can be done on both scorecast, and wincast bets. This adds a completely different element to the bet and will have you cheering on the last goal instead of the first goal for your player.
If you are looking for ways to make your bet have more chance of winning, and you don’t mind the odds lowering you could change your goal scorer from first or last to anytime. This is available with many bookmakers and while the odds will decrease dramatically on these bets, you will have more chance of landing one and you should see regular returns. When backing a player to score anytime this means that they can score any goal in the game for your bet to win, providing your second element is also a winner. Backing an anytime scorer with a team to win in a wincast is the method of betting that will see the lowest odds out of all these. However, it is a bet that is much easier to land, and if you want to do this you will need numerous winners throughout the season if you want to land a profit.
Basic scorecast and wincast bets can be very appealing, as can the variations on them, so find a way to bet that suits you and give them a go.
