Oddschanger Specials

What counts as a special market?

With other bets falling under the bracket of being a Double, Treble, Accumulator, Request-A-Bet or #PriceItUp, we’re left with specials markets, which effectively cater to anything else. These can be any sports with no specific focus on just one, and it’s more based around ongoing topics, current fixtures, and the generosity of the bookmaker who’s providing the exclusive market.

These specials come in many forms and count as any selection that doesn’t fall into a typical market. Whether it’s enhanced odds for a handful of teams to win on a given day, odds released on a specific managerial appointment, or a limited bet for a favoured player to achieve a set amount of shots on target, special bets are worth looking into, as there’s so many variations to choose from:

Enhanced Offers and Odds Boosts

Usually appearing on a daily basis and in many forms, the opportunity to back an already favourable bet but at stronger odds is always going to be appetising to the frequent punter. This tends to be presented as three or four favourites to win a match, that are priced up better than they usually would be in a basic accumulator. You can then back this larger bet and take some better returns if it goes your way.

Bookmakers battle between each other to present the most desirable enhanced offers and they don’t just remain in the realms of a specific selection of teams to all win. Other boosted odds can come from a number of goalscorers to score anytime in their respective games or Both Teams To Score in a handful of likely games, with there being enough variations to appease even the shrewdest of punter.

Manager, Player, Team and League Specials

A lot of things happen in a season but luckily, all the top bookmakers are prepared for all the manager sackings, player transfers, treble winning teams and national team call-ups. All of those betting opportunities fall under this bracket and, especially through the close contact between bookies and punters on social media, almost any market is possible for being requested and backed.

When January beckons and teams deal with their incomings and outgoings, special markets become available to predict where you think certain players will end up. The same can be said for sackings and appointments, as the managerial merry-go-round is always in full flow, so there’s practically no finish line in what you can bet on.

Statistics Betting

Something that’s gradually become popular in the betting world is wagering on statistics, with shots on targets being a main example. It can be a single player to get a specific number of shots on target or even several to get at least one, but there’s plenty of flexibility on what statistics you can get behind.

Especially when it comes to individual players, backing them to make a number of successful tackles, fouls, shots in general, or shots on target can be worth looking into in big games where the key players make themselves known.
