What Are Bookmaker Coupons?We’ll start with what bookmaker coupons actually are. Essentially they are slips of paper found in betting shops, although they are also accessible online too these days, which offer all the odds on a particular market.
They are most commonly found in football betting, and allow you to easily place a bet on a match as well as being able to mark the bet as a single, double, treble or as part of an accumulator. All you’re required to do is tick the appropriate boxes and pass your slip to the cashier at the bookmaker and hand over your stake.
A bookmaker coupon will include all the fixtures of the day available to bet on along with the odds of that particular market. For example, if you were to use a coupon to play the Match Result market, you would see three columns with one for home win, one for away win and one column for the draw.
All you’re required to then do is tick the box with the result you predict and place your bet.
Varieties of Bookmaker CouponsThere are a wide range of coupons offered by bookmakers these days, with them all being used in exactly the same way.
Among the most popular coupons is the BTTS coupon. Betfred are renowned for offering this and you’ll probably recognise it as Goals Galore.
The BTTS market is one in which a player must correctly predict that both teams will score in a game. It’s a popular market in online sports betting, particularly combined with a Match Result bet and in coupon form it’s just as popular.
It’s played by ticking “yes” or “no” on the coupon in the appropriate fixtures and placing your stake. You can do this as a single, or an accumulator, with boxes in the coupon to select depending on which.
Naturally, in order to win your selections must then be correctly predicted.
However, there really are dozens of coupons offered by a range of bookmakers, with coupons for the below also commonly found.
List of Popular Football Betting Coupons:
- Correct score coupon
- BTTS Coupon
- Match Result and BTTS
- Weekend Matches Coupon
- Midweek Coupon
- Two up and collect Coupon
- Overs/Unders Coupon
- Double Chance Coupon
- First Half Over/Under 1.5 goals
All are relatively self explanatory, with Weekend and Midweek coupons used to select the match winners on the particular dates, while 2 up and collect is a coupon in which if your selected team goes two up at any time of the fixture your bet wins regardless of the final score.
First Half Over/Under 1.5 goals is another popular market similar to BTTS and is essentially a coupon that allows you to predict the number of goals in a game. In this particular example, you would have to predict whether there is going to be two or more goals within a game. You would tick “yes” or “no” in exactly the same fashion as a BTTS coupon.
Where Can I Find Bookmaker Coupons?You’ll find coupons both online and in betting shops, with all the major players offering them. William Hill have a particularly extensive selection of coupons and "Match Result & BTTS" or "Match Result and 3 or More Goals" some of the more popular.
However, you’ll find them available with most bookmakers including the likes of Paddy Power, Coral and more, with a range of different leagues available to bet on from the Premier League, right down to League Two and European leagues.
