3 Tips for Better Football Transfer Betting

3 Tips for Better Football Transfer Betting -Exclude from MSN

When you think of sports betting you tend to think of betting on match results or the score line. Often, you can bet on aspects such as the best goal scorer or shot stopper, and then you can factor in live play where odds and bets change as the game evolves. Another aspect of UK betting online that you may have overlooked, however, is transfer betting.

Normally, this reaches fever pitch in the preseason but it also happens throughout the season. So with this in mind, let’s look at some tips for better transfer betting.

It’s not Just About the English Premier League

As the biggest league in the world, it is no surprise that the transfer action is intense in the EPL. Prior to a big move, there are rumours and it is one of the things that makes Football the best game in the world. It builds excitement when a new player especially a huge name comes into a squad, and disappointment if that big name has left your club.

The English preseason transfer window takes place between June 9th and August 31st. This is not the case across Europe however, where the window is slightly longer.

  • German Bundesliga – June 1st – August 31st
  • French Ligue 1 – June 1st – August 31st
  • Italian Serie A – June 1st – August 31st
  • Spanish La Liga – June 1st – August 31st
  • Dutch Eredivisie – June 11th – September 2nd

So if you were tracking a Juventus player rumoured to be moving to Barcelona, make sure you understand that it can happen before the English transfer window begins.

It is also a good idea to become familiar with the mid-season transfer window:

  • English Premier League – January 1st – January 31st
  • German Bundesliga – January 1st – February 2nd
  • French Ligue 1 – January 1st – February 2nd
  • Italian Serie A – January 1st – February 2nd
  • Spanish La Liga – January 1st – February 2nd
  • Dutch Eredivisie – January 3rd – January 31st

The golden rule is that a player can transfer from a league with a closed transfer window to an open transfer window, but not from an open transfer window to a closed transfer window.

Odds and Bets

Ensure you check odds and bets thoroughly as not every bookmaker applies either the same odds or bets. For example, some bookmakers count a loan deal as a transfer but some do not. Others offer additional bets on the value of a transfer should the player be famous.

Most offer bets on whether a player will leave or stay.

Always shop around for the best odds so you get the best payout should you be successful.


When assessing your transfer betting it is essential that you follow transfer rumours while assessing whether or not you should make a bet. For sports betting to be successful you should always conduct analysis and transfers are no different. Most head to BBC Football Transfer Gossip and Sky Sports Transfer Centre for information, but there are other sources.

The best source is someone on the inside.

Good luck with your football transfer betting, and remember never bet more than you can afford to lose.
