AFCON Betting Markets
AFCON betting sites will provide a variety of betting markets for this tournament. These markets will cover both pre-match and in-play. Let’s briefly describe the most popular ones that you find on the top Tanzanian betting sites. They are:
1X2 is the most popular AFCON betting market on any bookie. It is often referred to as the Match-Winner market, requiring you to wager on the Full-time result of a game. That is, you have to predict if the match will end as a Home Win, Away Win or Draw.
However, you have to understand that ‘Home and Away’ aren’t well pronounced in this tournament as all matches will be played in the host nation’s (Ivory Coast) stadiums. Nevertheless, bookies will surely place teams in this format – Home, Draw, Away – for bettors to wager.
The Total market is also known as Over/Under. It involves predicting that the number of goals to be scored in a match will be greater or lesser than the mark set by a betting site. You can use this market for pre-games and live matches.
Bettors who are skilled at picking out teams that score a lot of goals or teams that don’t score a lot will fancy this market. Over/Under 0.5, 1.5 and 2.5 are the most popular Totals market on Tanzanian betting sites.
🏅 Correct Score
The correct score market involves predicting the exact score in a game. You have to choose what the scoreline will be in the 90 minutes of play. This market usually carries high odds, which, as a result, impacts your payout greatly.
It is one of the most tricky betting markets, requiring not just your research skills but also instincts and luck. Like the Totals Market, you will also find correct scores during in-play. 1-0, 2-0, 3-1, 0-1, 0,2, 1-1, 1,3 are examples of correct score.
🏅 Both Teams To Score
The Both Teams To Score Market requires that the participating football teams in a match score at least one goal in regulation match time. Most betting sites abbreviate it as BTTS. Some bookies give players a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ option with this market. ‘Yes’ means that both teams will score, and ‘No’ means that both teams won’t score or just a team will score. 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2, 1-4, 3-2, etc., are some of the examples of BTTS.
Handicap is a type of bet that gives both football equal chances to win a game. The underdog gets a headstart with additional goals already recorded in the team’s name, while the favourite team will start the game with a goal deficit.
For example, the underdog will get at least a one-goal lead before the start of the game. 0:1, 0:2, and 0:3 are examples of Handicap bets indicating that the underdog team has a 1, 2 or 3-goal lead.
🏅 Next Team To Score
The Next Team To Score Market is a popular live market. It involves predicting the next team to score a goal in a game. For instance, if the result of an ongoing game is 1-0, this market will have you predict the next team that will score the next goal.
🏅 Next Player To Score/Next Goalscorer
The Next Goalscorer Market is similar to the Next Team To Score. The only difference is that you must choose the next player to score a goal instead of the next team to score. The focus is usually on the strikers or forwards. However, this could be a challenging market for bettors because a different player may end up scoring the next goal.
🏅 Outright Bet
Outright Bet is a future bet that involves predicting a competition’s overall winner. In this case, players can predict the team that is likely to win the AFCON title. Also, the odds for this market are usually high.
🏅 Top Goalscorer Market
The Top Goalscorer Market, as the name suggests, is a bet on the player who will record the most goals in a competition. We have a couple of great goalscorers that will grace the 2023/2024 AFCON stage. Bettors can predict the AFCON top scorers, choosing one that will record the most goals in Ivory Coast.
AFCON Betting Tips
You may need to apply some strategies to succeed with their AFCON 2023/24 predictions. Here are a few tips for your AFCON betting.
📰 Follow Team News and Lineups
You must be up-to-date with the teams you intend to wager on at the 2023/2024 AFCON. Follow their team news to know the players available in training, those who are injured or not fully fit, those who haven’t had enough playing match time before being invited to the competition and so on. Knowing all these will assist you in making your predictions.
As a bettor, you must check the lineups before the start of a game to know if there have been changes to the starting lineup. If there’s a change in the usual starting XI, the team’s style of play on the field may change, thereby affecting your bets.
📈 Check Past Records and Statistics
Past Records and Statistics are essential to betting on the AFCON. For instance, teams like Egypt, Cameroon, Ghana and Nigeria have a brilliant record in this competition, winning at least 3 titles. These teams will also grace the 2024 AFCON, proving that they’re a formidable team that knows the competition so well. It is easy to see them as one of the AFCON favourites judging from their records.
Furthermore, check the statistics of these teams before a game. For instance, look at their head-to-head record against a team, the number of goals they’ve recorded, etc.
⚽ Consider the Form of the Team and Players
It’s advisable to consider the form of a team and their players before betting on an AFCON game. Check if their strikers have been scoring goals or if they’ve been blanking for a while. Also, check how the team have been performing from the AFCON qualifiers and their results from a few games back before the start of the tournament.
Placing a bet on a team that has had poor results and struggling to win games will be such a bad idea. This is why you must consider their form to aid your predictions.
💰 Have a Financial Plan
Bettors should always have a budget for any tournament they want to bet on. You will only bet what you can afford to spend when you have a financial plan. Also, don’t chase your losses when you lose a bet, as this could lead to losing more.
