Different forms of soccer betting

Football betting is a widespread phenomenon, and it poses a significant social problem that warrants condemnation. The act of betting on football matches leads to severe consequences, affecting not only the participants but also their families, relatives, and society at large. But what exactly is football betting, and what are the different forms it takes? This article by Luat Thanh Cong aims to clarify these issues.

What is Football Betting?

Firstly, betting refers to the australia soccer prediction of wagering money or other valuable assets to predict the outcome of an upcoming or ongoing event that has not yet concluded. Specifically, football betting involves using money or valuable assets to wager on the outcome of a football match that is about to take place or is currently underway but has not yet finished or yielded a final result.

In football betting, a bookmaker and a bettor place wagers on the game's progress. The most common form of betting is predicting the match's score, but other forms include betting on the number of corner kicks, the number of yellow cards issued by the referee, and more. The bookmaker provides specific odds for a match.



For example:

If there is a match between Manchester City and Manchester United with odds of 1/2 and an over/under of 2, it means Manchester City is favored by 1/2. Therefore, if the match ends in a draw, those who bet on Manchester City lose their money, while those who bet on Manchester United win. Generally, the win/loss ratio is 1:1 (for instance, if the match is a draw and someone bets 1 million VND on Manchester United, they win 1 million VND, while those who bet on Manchester City lose 1 million VND). However, this ratio can change depending on the match's real-time developments, as the bookmaker adjusts the odds minute by minute (e.g., betting 1 million VND on Manchester United might only yield 900,000 VND if Manchester City is perceived to be under pressure from Manchester United at that moment).

Regarding the over/under ratio of 2 (with odds of 1/2), if the total score of the match after 90 minutes plus injury time exceeds 3 goals (e.g., 2:1, 3:1, etc.), those who bet on "over" win, whereas if the total score is under 2.5 goals, those who bet on "under" win. Other forms of betting include:

"In-play" betting: Predicting whether a team will score in the last 15 minutes of the match.

Corner kick betting: Predicting the total number of corner kicks in the match.

Betting on which team will win a season, which team will be relegated, or which coach will be fired.

Legal Perspectives on Football Betting

"In cases of gambling in the form of playing the lottery, football betting, horse racing betting, etc., one instance of playing the lottery, one instance of football betting, one instance of horse racing betting, etc., (considered as one instance of gambling) is understood as participating in a single lottery, betting on a single football match, or betting on a single horse race, etc., where the participant can play multiple times. Criminal liability is determined based on the total amount of money or value of assets used in these instances."

Thus, football betting is considered a form of gambling and is therefore illegal. However, if participants engage in football betting with small amounts of money purely to enhance the excitement of the match, without aiming for profit, they are not subject to administrative penalties. Betting amounts of 1,000,000 VND or more, or amounts below 1,000,000 VND if the person has been previously fined for gambling, organizing gambling, or has not had their criminal record expunged for gambling offenses, will result in criminal liability for "gambling," punishable by non-custodial reform or imprisonment.
