What is Half/Quarters Betting?
Half/quarters bets are similar to first 5 innings bets in MLB. They take place over a specific period of a game rather than the whole event, such as a half in soccer, or a quarter in the NFL. They can come in many bet types such as the moneyline or point spreads bets.
How Does Half/Quarters Betting Work?
An example of how half soccer betting works is if you place a half soccer bet where you back New York City FC to be leading at halftime. Or it may be the case that you place a quarter NFL bet in that you have the Buffalo Bills to be leading by -3.5 points by the end of the first quarter. If these predictions happen by the end of the period you bet on, you win. If they happen later on in the game, it won’t matter as your bet will have lost.
How do I place a Half/Quarters Bet?
To place half/quarters bets you need to find the game you wish to place a wager on, then click on it to expand your betting options. Find the section for half/quarters bets and select the ones you want. Once happy with your selections, place the bet and wait to see if it comes in. After you bet on one section, you can then bet on the next section of the game if you wish.
What Should I Know Before Placing a Half/Quarters Bet?
One tip is to monitor the form of teams. In the MLS for example some teams will have a habit of scoring last-minute goals or scoring early on in games by applying pressure. Keep an eye on stats like this and back the half soccer bet in which you are more likely to win a bet.
Are There Any Half/Quarters Betting Strategies?
There is a strategy used by experienced bettors, similar to the one used for the first 5 innings bets which is to cover the underdog when they are at home. Some bettors believe that when an underdog is at home, they will come out fighting for the early part of the game and give the favorites a run for their money. However, as time goes on, the quality and talent of the favorites usually come through, and the underdog is broken down. The early buzz the team gets starting a game can be beneficial.
