Netball Betting with William Hill
Developed in England in the 1890s as a non-contact variation of basketball, netball is played around the world on an increasingly professional basis.
The sport is governed internationally by IFNA in Manchester, an organisation that also produces the sports world rankings, one of the main factors for working out netball odds in international fixtures.
Although it has yet to feature in the Olympic Games, the World Netball Championships provide a showcase for the sport, an event which attracts plenty of betting. Netball is particularly popular in Commonwealth countries and the four-yearly Commonwealth Games also generates lots of bets.
In addition, the annual Netball Quad Series contested by England, New Zealand Australia and South Africa provides plenty of netball betting markets for gamblers.
Netball Betting At William Hill
As one of the most trusted bookmakers in operation, many gamblers turn to William Hill for their bets on netball competitions. Like other fast-paced team games, there are several opportunities to place bets during play with William Hill as well as trying to predict the outcome of games.
In addition, William Hill offers customers plenty of podcast and streaming content to make gambling more fun.
There is even a tip advisor service that you can turn to in order to make your gambling on netball that bit better informed or to help you if you are a newcomer to the exciting world of netball betting.
Netball Betting Tips
Although international netball tends to attract the most attention from occasional gamblers, there are plenty of other fixtures that you can bet on at other times of the season.
In the southern hemisphere, it is possible to place bets on the sport even when there is no netball being played in the UK.
Teams like the New South Wales Swifts and the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic – from Australia and New Zealand respectively – often have fierce club rivalries with the likes of the Adelaide Thunderbirds, for example.
Betting on these hotly contested fixtures often means carefully looking through each team sheet to establish which side you think might come out on top. Injuries to star players can have a dramatic impact on outcomes in club netball.
Likewise, checking the recent form of teams is highly advisable even if it does not offer a sure guide as to who will win.
It is always worth checking the netball odds that are being offered on matchday.
These can change rapidly according to team news and other factors as they become known. As such, you may find more favourable odds to bet on than you had first seen.
Indeed, some in-play netball betting markets exist so you might even find it becomes a good idea to add an additional wager on your favourite team if you think they might turn around a deficit by full time, for instance.
Before betting on the final score of a game, make sure you know whether it is possible for that game to go to extra time.
Types of Netball Betting
When it comes to netball tournaments, there are all sorts of bets that are available to you. Firstly, it is possible to bet on the outright winner of the competition. For the chance of a greater prize, you could try naming the top three teams in the tournament in order.
Even more tempting, may be the possibility of selecting which teams will win which medals, which involves getting the right order, not just selecting the top performing sides.
If none of those types of bet fit the bill, then you could always make a wager on which team will come last after the rankings have been worked out, a so-called wooden spoon bet.
Alternatively, try to predict which player will score the most goals during a tournament if you are not sure about betting on teams.
When you are looking for a bet that you can make on specific game rather than a tournament, then predicting the outcome of a head-to-head fixture is possible. However, remember to factor in the possibility of a draw, too.
Another popular bet is to predict the total number of goals that will be scored in a match. There again, you can always bet on the total number of goals in the first half or the second half.
Some people like to bet on the initial stages of a netball game and will, therefore, have a flutter on which side will be the first to score 10 points.
