Why bet on a Penalty awarded?
In a modern football, the penalties are becoming more and more common occurrence. This is due to the new soccer rules that oblige the referees to allow play to continue to the advantage of the attacking players.
At any second Champions League game we can see at least one adjudged a penalty kick. In the matches of the English Premier League, Italian Serie A, German Bundesliga and Spanish Primera Division, the statistic is not much different.
Overall, the trend to adjudge so many penalties resulted in the bookmakers to give them due attention. Many of the major bookmakers still don’t want to introduce this type of betting options in their platforms, but sooner or later the competition rules will force them to do it.
Here you can find a list of all bookmakers that offer to bet on penalties.
Penalty bets are divided into two types: “A team to score a penalty” and “Being awarded a penalty kick in the match”.
A team to score a penalty is quoted at an average odds 9.00, while a penalty awarded in a match is with a medium odds round about 4.00.
Note that when on the pitch are playing teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, etc. big teams, the odds on each of them to score from a penalty kick in a match is between 4.00 and 7.00.
Prediction and betting on penalty kicks can bring you huge profits, considering the high odds they offer.
The best betting system of penalties is 2 from 5 where the profits are almost guaranteed.
Nevertheless, don’t forget to check the statistics of the referee, who will lead the match because there are referees, who just don’t like judging penalty kicks.
