Index Based Football Bets


Win Index

Another popular football spread betting market is the 25:10 Win Index.

This is similar to an outright match market where 25pts are awarded to the match winner and 0pts to the losing side. If the match is drawn both teams are awarded 10pts.

We might make a spread for Manchester United at 15-18 for their match against Crystal Palace. If they won they’d make-up 25 and spread bettors who bought at 18 would win seven times their stake. However, if Crystal Palace held them to a draw the make-up would be 10 and buyers would have lost 8 times their stake. If Crystal Palace had won then buyers would have lost 18 times their stake.

Sporting Index also offer a number of similar markets:

Team Performance

We award or deduct team’s points for various elements of a match. The spread will be based on the following: Win = 25pts, draw = 10pts, goal = 15pts, clean sheet = 10pts, each corner taken = 3pts, each yellow card = -5pts, each red card = -15pts.

For example, Tottenham Team Performance against Cardiff might be 48-52. If the match finishes 2-0 to Tottenham and they had five corners and avoided any bookings their make-up would be 80 (25pts for the win, 30pts for the two goals, 15pts for the five corners and 10pts for the clean sheet).

Match Performance

Points are awarded or deducted for various elements of a whole match. Our spread is based on the following: Goal = 15pts, corner = 3pts, yellow card = 5pts, red card = 15pts, penalty awarded = 10pts and 0-0 draw = -25pts.


Sporting Index name four players (two from either team), and award points for each goal scored by any of the four. Our spread is based on 25pts awarded per each goal scored by any of the named players. 8pts are awarded per player who does not take any part in the match.

Group Indices

In tournaments such as the Champions League and World Cup, we award points to teams on where they finish in their respective groups as follows: Group winner: 25pts, 2nd place: 10pts, 3rd place: 5pts, 4th place: 0pts.

For example, we might quote England at 11-12.5 for their group. They would make up 25pts for winning Group D.

These markets are updated across the course of the competition.
