Soccer is one of the most exciting sports and betting on the European Europa League, in particular, is as exciting as the league itself. There are various betting options in UEFA Europa League, and each has its own variables. It is important to understand how these variables work and it will help you decide to place your bet.

Like in the English Premier League, the Italian Serie A, and the Spanish La Liga, there are a number of different kinds of bets, from moneyline bets, props bets, futures bets, half markets, and parlays, there are many different options a bettor has to wager on a match. The mechanics are also the same in the European Champions League, the French Ligue 1, the Mexican Liga MX, and the German Bundesliga.

This guide will help beginners understand how to bet on those betting options, how to read soccer odds, and which type of betting option may be the safer choice in your wager as we continue our series of Sports Betting and how to bet on each soccer league.

UEFA Europa League Moneyline Bet

A moneyline bet in soccer is basically who of the two clubs you feel will win the matchup outright. Odds are placed for each team and based on your pick, you will receive a payout. For example:

Granada vs Manchester United

Granada +430
Tie +270
Manchester United -145

* Odds by FanDuel

So if you bet on Granada to win at $100, you would be paid out $430, your original bet plus the winnings. If you bet on Manchester United to win, you would win your bet plus $69 in winnings, but if you expect the game to end with no winner, the payout would be $270.

Over/Under UEFA Europa League bet

Over/Under in soccer betting is a wager on the total number of goals. If you think a match will be over/under a certain that combined total, then you place your bet. For example:

Ajax vs Roma

Over 3.5  +190
Under 3.5 -235

* Odds by FanDuel

Over 3.5 means that both clubs must score at least 4 goals combined. Anything below that and you lose your bet. On the contrary, Under 3.5 signifies that both clubs must score at a combined sum of 3 goals the most. Anything over that and you lose your bet.

UEFA Europa League Prop Betting

Prop bets in soccer are just like those of other sports. Here you bet on what could happen during the game, for example, who will score a goal, or how the game will end after the final whistle.

There are Player Props, where you guess the exact goalscorer of the game. It could be the first or the final scorer of his club, or during the match overall. Or you can try your luck by doing the Game Props. With the Game Props, you guess the correct final score or you can guess if both teams will score or not. For example:

Arsenal vs Slavia Prague

Both Teams to Score DraftKings
Yes -115
No -114

UEFA Europa League Game Spread Bet

For this form of wager, points (or goals in the case of society) are essentially deducted, and points are awarded to the underdog. These variations in the points/goals are known as the spread. For example:

Dinamo Zagreb vs Villarreal

Dinamo Zagreb +1.25 -455
Villarreal -1.25 +330

* Odds by DraftKings

Since Villarreal are favored, that means that they have to win or draw by a goal. Anything below that and you lose your bet. While if you bet on Dinamo Zagreb, then they have to win or draw by a goal. Anything below that and you lose your bet.

UEFA Europa League Futures
