Keep reading to find out how it all works and why you should make sure to use our tips to your advantage.
Types of Soccer Predictions
Soccer may just bet the most popular sport on the planet, as it is played on every continent and is the most popular sport in dozens of countries worldwide. Some may think that soccer is exclusively European, but this is not the case as even the USA has plenty to offer through the ever growing MLS competition. At BettingBilly we prepared MLS picks and picks for other football leagues around the world on a weekly basis, and these are some of the most popular types of picks we have for you:
Moneyline Soccer Tips
Soccer is a game where goals are few and far between and the vast majority of people, especially amateurs, bet on the moneyline market. Moneyline betting means betting on which team will win the match straight up. The pick here is quite simple and the odds depend on the quality and recent form of the two competing sides. Our experts make sure to analyze these and other crucial elements and stats to come up with the most likely and profitable bet.
MLS Betting Predictions
BettingBilly may be an American site, but our soccer experts are not entirely devoted to the MLS. However, some of our team do make an effort to bring you special betting predictions for the MLS games while the season is on and this is great news for all fans of local soccer. If you support your local team, make sure to check in from time to time and see if we have some soccer picks you may like.
Over/Under Soccer Betting Tips
The over/under bet market is quite popular in soccer as punters can bet on quite a few things. Most commonly, we will be looking at the 2.5 goals line and whether the game will end with more or fewer than 3 goals in total. However, we may occasionally also include the over/under on cards or corners in some specific games, just to keep things interesting.
Soccer Proposition Betting Predictions
Proposition bets or props are also often played by soccer bettors as there are many things to look for. Do you think your favorite central forward will score one or multiple goals in the next match? Which half will be more productive and is there going to be a penalty in the game? These and other props are often looked at by our pundits and brought to your attention when the odds are right.

This page is dedicated to soccer betting tips exclusively, but that’s not all BettingBilly is about.

What Bets are Usually Placed on Soccer?
If you are a fan of the game of European football, or soccer as we commonly know it, than you probably already know what kind of bets people look for the most. However, we understand not everyone is so knowledgeable and we want to make sure every one of our users understands what markets are most lucrative in each sport.
When it comes to soccer specifically, the best professional sports bettors out there usually look at the over/under market, both teams to score and the Asian handicap market. The over/under betting market focuses on the number of goals that will be scored in the game overall. This market is very stats oriented and things like injuries of in-form players affect it greatly. The Asian handicap, on the other hand, is a market that looks to find underdogs who may pull a surprise or at least not lose by a big margin, thus still winning with the handicap.
If you are looking for some great odds on reasonable bets, you may also want to look at the season long bets such as which club will win a championship or league or who will qualify for European cups, international competitions or the World Cup. Of course, these bets are made for the long run, so don’t expect any results from them fast.
Finally, proposition bets are the most fun, especially if you make them live while the games are actually going on. Nevertheless, props are highly volatile and seldom the best value in soccer matches, so we recommend great caution and small bets when these markets are in question.
Soccer Predictions: What You Should Know about BettingBilly
While there are plenty of other betting prediction sites out there, not all of them offer the same kind of quality and many of them ask you to pay them before they share their picks. At BettingBilly, we offer daily free soccer picks to all our users and all you need to do is register for a free user account.
Once you become a user of our site, you will gain access to Billy’s List, a unique feature that lets you look at our expert’s betting predictions for the day in each of the sports. We do not charge any commissions and we allow you to copy our predictions without any additional risk.
What’s more, we have a team of proven professionals whose bets are made based on extensive research and in-depth understanding of the game of soccer. Each pick made is carefully deliberated and not just randomly thrown out there as it may be at some other sites.
To make sure you know that our experts are actually profitable, we show you their lifetime ROI (return on investment), which is the crucial stat you will want to know before you place any bets. We also show you their lifetime profit and whether or not they are actually beating the bookies in the long run.
This is Unit
Our soccer expert picks are made for all types of sports bettors, regardless of the size of their bankroll. For that purpose, we use the unit metric, which determines what percentage of one’s bankroll our expert suggests should be wagered on a particular pick. This way, you can make a proportional bet based on your bankroll and without regard to what our expert may be betting.
In fact, we will never even tell you what kind of a bet our pundit made in monetary value, but only in terms of bankroll percentage. The reason for the unit metric being used is that we don’t want you to place your entire bankroll on difficult bets with long odds. This way, you get to combat the mathematical variance and give yourself the best long-term shot at winning money.
This is ROI
As we already mentioned, ROI is the key metric that shows you just how well a certain pundit has been doing against the bookmakers in his career. We track every tip each pundit makes on the site along with the unit metric and add them all up. This way, we can show you what kind of a profit an expert is showing over months or years of making soccer picks.
All soccer predictions and analysis at BettingBilly are made in “units” so we will also show the profit in units and percentage of what was wagered. For instance, a pundit who has doubled the amount of units he wagered in his lifetime (highly unlikely) would have a 100% ROI. More realistically, you want to look for pundits whose ROI is over 5% or preferably 10% over a big sample of bets.
Computer vs. Expert Picks: Advantages of Expert Picks
If you have been around the world of soccer betting for a while, you have probably come across sites that offer free computer picks to their customers. Computer picks can be a valuable thing to give you an idea of where some value bets might be made, but it takes the expertise of a real pundit to actually make a proper winning sports gambling wager.
This is why all our soccer betting picks are created by betting experts who understand the game of soccer at the deepest level and are familiar with all the players, teams and other factors involved. Our picks are handmade by actual winning bettors who make a living out of sports betting and each pick you find on Billy’s List is backed by actual bets made by our pundits in the real world.
Tips & Tricks: Top 7 Advice from our Betting Experts
Experienced sports bettors know that it takes more to win than just placing a bet and having faith in it. BettingBilly employs a great number of the top soccer pundits out there and we take pride in knowing our soccer tips are always profitable over the long run. If you are looking to bet on soccer, here are a few pieces of advice you will want to take in:
- Bet on the domestic games: Domestic leagues are usually what punters know the best and there is no reason to go to wild betting on foreign games. Bet on some MLS matches to start off with and possibly place a wager on your favorite team if there is value.
- Try the big competitions: There is certainly value in betting on the big international competitions as well. Champions League betting is certainly one you will not want to miss, with plenty of super eventful games on the calendar.
- Look for the best odds: In all forms of betting, you always want to get the best odds. Make sure you shop around the different bookmakers and find the ones that offer the best odds on your chosen pick.
- Combine your bets on parlays: Parlays are another great way of betting on soccer. Combine multiple games from a single round of a competition and make some great parlays with amazing odds and strike a big win.
- Keep your bets under control: Never let your betting get out of hand in terms of sizing. If you make your bets too large, you will lose control and not be able to handle the variance. Take our experts’ advice on bet sizing for every pick.
- Try betting other sports: Sports other than soccer can also be super fun to bet, especially if you like to watch them as well. Look around Billy’s List for some great picks for NFL, NBA, NHL and other competitions.
- Stay responsible: Most importantly, remember that sports betting is just fun and never let it get too far. If you are starting to lose money you needed for other things, make sure to stop or ask for some help if you are finding that hard to do.
