Why and How Should You Bet On Corners – Part 3

This time we’ll focus on the types of bets you can place when betting on corner kicks. Overall there’s 8 options for you to choose from – that should apply to most bookmakers. Let’s break it down!
Number 1: First or Last Corner
Here you’re betting on which team will win the first and/or the last corner kick. This may be more down to luck than strategy on your side but it’s exciting nonetheless, especially when you’re betting live.
Number 2: Time of first corner kick
This one is a tad trickier. However, it can be a good idea if you’re betting on matches with a clear favourite and on teams that you know are highly motivated especially in those valuable first minutes of the game. You can be limited by a time stamp, though, – it’s usually the 10th or 20th minute.
Number 3: Total corners
This is pretty obvious – you gamble on the number of corner kicks. Usually bookmakers set a limit of 10 kicks, and your aim here is to decide whether the actual number after the game will be over or under that.
Number 4: Half-time corners
Analogical to the previous one, only now you ty to guess the number of corners won by the half-time stamp. The most common bookies’ marker here is 5.
Number 5: Who’ll get 5 first
The course of action here is for you to bet on which team will win 5 corners first. The number is not set and can vary within different bookmakers, but it’s usually 3, 5 or 7.
Number 6: Who’ll win more corners
You’re betting on which team will end with more corner kicks in their tally after the last whistle.
Number 7: Stronger half
You’re trying to predict whether the first or second half of the match will have a higher number of corner kicks. Keep in mind that the first 45 minutes have less chance of being too intense, thus the odds are higher.
Number 8: Corner range
When betting on what the range of corners won would be, know that the odds vary. Typically there’s 5 sets – 0-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13+ corner kicks in a given match.
