There are two primary versions of volleyball, including beach volleyball and indoors volleyball. Both versions are played around the world, and also at the Summer Olympics, where millions of fans root for the teams representing their nations.
Both forms of volleyball involve two teams and like tennis, require a net in the middle of the court. Players can only use their hands and arms to hit the ball, and the ball is not allowed to touch the ground or go out of bounds.
Matches involve multiple sets, with each set determined by a specific number of points. In indoor volleyball, teams must reach 25 points (with a two-point margin) to win the set. In beach volleyball, however, the winning mark is 21 points.
Indoor volleyball teams field six players. In beach volleyball, there are just two players per team. This major difference clearly results in varying strategies depending on the type of volleyball being played.
If you want to bet on volleyball, it’s best to have a basic understanding of the rules. Here, we’ll review the rules of the game and offer you valuable volleyball betting tips.
Correct Score Volleyball Betting Lines
In online volleyball betting, correct score betting is represented as sets. So, you try to guess how many sets each team will win during the match. In beach volleyball, example scores could range from 2-0 to 2-1. For indoor matches, you can expect the scores to range from 3-0 to 3-2. Just be sure to check the volleyball betting odds several times before the match so that you get the best possible value for your wager.
Tournament Bets & Volleyball Betting Odds
When it comes to volleyball betting lines and tournament bets, you simply try to predict the winner of the whole tournament.
Tournaments are great for volleyball sports betting enthusiasts, because there are often plentiful matches played at a fast pace. Not only can you place pre-match bets, but you can also participate in live betting as the matches unfold on your screen. Furthermore, after you’ve wagered on a match, BetRivers Illinois Sportsbook provides live streaming of many volleyball matches. So, you can you use your mobile device as your personal sportsbook wherever you go. Volleyball betting in Illinois just doesn’t get any better!
Match Bet Volleyball Betting Odds
As with most sports, match betting is the simplest and fastest way to bet on volleyball. Check out the volleyball betting odds at BetRivers Illinois Sportsbook, select the match that you want to bet on and then prepare your bet slip.
You can back the home or away team – but keep in mind there are no draws. Many volleyball betting odds are lopsided due to one team being the heavy favorites, so be sure to review handicap betting markets to improve the odds.
For example, you could bet on volleyball favorites to win with a -1.5 handicap, which means they must win by two sets. On the other hand, the 1.5 handicap on the underdogs may be a good value if you think they are overpriced. And the great thing about betting on the underdog is that you can win two ways – either they beat the spread, or they win outright, and you’ll get your payout.
Volleyball Points Betting
Bettors can predict how many points will be scored in a match. It’s important to keep in mind that beach games only play to three sets, while the indoor matches cover up to five sets. So, for example, in an indoor match (with three sets), the minimum number of points scored would be 75, if the winning team miraculously scored every point in all three sets, 25-0, 25-0, 25-0. In other words, you can see that volleyball involves a lot of scoring. In fact, a regular indoor match often sees scores of around 136 points.
