The UEFA Nations League is the latest footy tournament to make your money on, with the first game taking place on September 6 2018. The national competition features all the best players, teams and, hand in hand, exceptional betting markets. We’re sharing all of the betting tips for the UEFA Nations League, as well as the free bets and stats for where to make your fortune.
Football betting is the most popular option for bookies, and you can bet there are plenty of offers and promos for the tournament. The greatest promotions for customers are the Nations League free bets. Essentially, you can get decent returns for nothing at all. The best option for free bets are the welcome bonuses, which double up as Nations League free bets. You can get money, often up to £50, if you register for an account with a particular bookie. Likewise, you can get specific money back specials and free bet offers for the Nations League.
Plenty of bookmakers offer acca rewards for the Nations League, as well as game specials. For instance, bet on the right team to win and you’ll get a free bet in return.
Claiming your Nations League free bets is easy; no matter whether you are a regular punter or are just betting specifically on the competition. Firstly, you need an account to qualify for the promos. If you are looking for Nations League free bets, you’ll have to sign up for an account and follow the terms to release the bonus funds. Some welcome offers also have wagering requirements, so it’s worth checking those before settling for a bookie.
For existing customers, you’ll likely have to bet on a particular game and follow the terms outlined to release the free bet. Once you’ve completed their requirements, the bookmaker will release the funds. More often than not, they’ll do it immediately.
As this competition is so huge, you can expect thousands of UEFA Nations League betting markets. The most popular, no doubt, is the outright winner betting market, with Spain coming in top with most bookies. However, you can also place specific group bets, both teams to score matches, top goalscorer, handicaps and even player specials – such as Kane to score within the first 10 minutes.
The outright winner betting market is the most popular betting market for the competition, with all bookies offering betting odds for the top team. Spain is the current favourite for the UEFA Nations League winner betting market. However, they have stiff competition in the form of France; the winners of the 2018 World Cup. Both teams have put a strong squad forward, but Argentina is also expected to put in a major play for the trophy.
Another common bet is both teams to score (BTTS). Basically, you are placing money on both teams to score, and edging your bets for the match. The advantage is that, even if your team is down 4-0, the game isn’t over and your bet could still pay off. Most bookies also credit the both teams to score bonus immediately, even if the game hasn’t finished.
Handicap betting is, particularly, good for when a top team is playing one not expected to win. Essentially, the Nations League handicap betting evens up the playing field, giving a deficit for the quality team to overcome at the start. You can expect some tasty returns from handicap betting.
The win to nil betting market is brilliant for those that follow the Nations League stats and know their teams. This type of bet involves betting on two outcomes: one of the teams will score, one of the teams will not. So, if you put a win to nil bet on Spain v France, then Spain has to score during the game and France cannot score.
Again, this is a popular bet and we are seeing loads of bookies offering this type of market. Basically, you are putting your money on the team to win both halves, and it, generally, only includes the 90 minutes. If your team scores but does not win the first or second half, your bet is lost.
The UEFA Nations League is huge, with the world’s top teams playing. As such, you can expect decent streams for every game. Most of the UEFA Nations League games will be shown on TV, especially the matches between major players – such as Spain, France and Argentina – as well as, of course, the final. However, bookmakers are a brilliant alternative to games that are not streamed on the TV, including the likes of those in lower groups. You can find the schedule for the Nations League live streaming games on most bookmaker’s websites. However, make sure you check their access requirements before signing up.
The Nations League group stages are coming to a close and teams know exactly what they need to do going into the final game. England must avoid defeat against Croatia at Wembley to relegate their opponents from League A, while a win could see them reach the semi finals at the expense of Spain, whom they beat in Seville last month.
For Wales, it is much more straight forward; they currently top their League B group with Denmark and the Republic of Ireland. While Martin O’Neill’s side are staring down the barrel of relegation, Ryan Giggs’ men will be hoping to win and move up a division. More importantly, though, they will secure a playoff spot for Euro 2020.
When it comes to Nations League betting tips, you need to do your research. Read up on the team stats, including their previous records, past game performance, player statistics and more. Also, check out who the bookies are backing for the games, and hedge your bets. However, keep your eye on Spain, as they are the current favourite to be crowned winner. Spain largely outclassed England during their opener and has shown they are fighting back after splintering in Russia during the world cup.
The world cup winners, France, might have had a goalless draw for their first game, but we also expect big things from the solid squad.
