My intention was always to find a career that allowed me to explore my love of sport, which eventually led me to a journalism career. After five or so years, I was looking for a new challenge, and writing about sports from a betting perspective was the obvious choice: it was new and interesting, but allowed me to stay in touch with the sports I loved so much.
It didn’t take long for me to notice that the way most publications write about sports betting is very, well, samey. I carried on regardless, but the dissatisfaction was mounting, and right when I thought it was going to peak, I was offered the chance to write for PlayersBest.com. I haven’t looked back since: joining this incredible ride has given me the opportunity to write content I am genuinely proud of, and which I am sure will serve you, the reader, well in the future.

Before liftoff – Our tips to ensuring a safe soccer betting mission
Above all, it is our duty here at PlayersBest to ensure that any mission you embark upon across the gambling galaxy is a safe and prosperous one. From basketball betting online to soccer gambling, safety, security and legality always come first. Below, I’ve provided you with a checklist containing our top five expert tips to ensure a safe and secure betting experience anywhere in the galaxy.
Each and every location on planet earth has different rules and laws in place when it comes to allowing residents to enter the gambling galaxy. In the US, these laws are implemented on a state government basis. Therefore, before you go ahead and use any operators offering soccer betting for today, it’s essential to look for the correct license. For example, in the universally renowned gambling hub of New Jersey, all online sportsbooks must have a valid license from the NJDGE. All other states which offer legal gambling will have their own equivalent of such a licensing and regulatory body.
2. Security check
Before launching into outer space, shuttles and rockets are put through rigorous safety and security checks. When it comes to betting on soccer online, you should take a similarly strict approach. The two main things you want to look for here are:
How the sportsbook protects your account
How the sportsbook protects transactions and keeps your funds safe
When it comes to account protection, you’ll usually find that the best soccer betting sites in the galaxy tend to have similar measures to online banking. This means two-factor authentication login procedures that include the implementation of OTPs.
In terms of financial protection, you want to ensure that transactions are encrypted using modern, space-age technology, such as 16-bit SSL, equivalent or better. Additionally, it’s also vital to check how your funds are stored. Offline storage systems are the safest and most secure as it makes it near-impossible for hackers and other hostile lifeforms to access them.
3. Privacy protection
4. Fueling your engine
Before you launch on any mission, you’ve first gotta fuel that engine of yours – and how you do it matters a whole lot! The range of banking options available with a soccer betting site really can tell us a lot about how legit their operations are. These days, there is a whole universe of safer, faster and more secure alternatives to funding your betting site account using your bank directly. The best soccer betting sites should always offer you a decent range of diverse options when it comes to making deposits and withdrawals.
5. Take control of your own mission
A betting site can be as safe and legit as is humanly possible in the vast expanse of our universe, but ultimately you control your own destiny. Take charge of your own soccer betting mission by engaging in a sound bankroll management strategy. Myself and other astronomical gambling experts recommend setting an initial bankroll budget, and then only using a certain percentage of it for each wager. Things to avoid include chasing your losses and getting carried away when you’re winning. You can find more information on bankroll management in our training guides here at PlayersBest.
The top five safety tips that I have provided you with above can be applied to almost any form of activity within the gambling galaxy. From tennis betting online to online casino betting – the above safety tips should always be applied on any gambling mission.
Here in our test lab just now however, I’m taking you through our comparison tool of soccer betting for today. With that in mind, I’ve decided to provide you with a few of the top features that myself and the experts look for specifically when navigating the soccer solar system within the wider gambling galaxy.
First Impressions – signs in the soccer stars
Now I do always say never judge a book by its cover, but the first impressions that you get when touching down on a new soccer betting planet can tell you alot. It may sound super obvious, but if a betting site is adorned with soccer-related imagery, then there’s a good chance it might be a good place to conduct your soccer betting for today.
As I said before though, never judge a book by its cover – so the next step you need to take is to scratch beneath the surface to make sure everything is as it seems…
Look for the leagues
Now, I probably don’t need to tell you this, but soccer ain’t like football. While the NFL is the only real top league in the whole universe, soccer has an absolute galaxy of top professional leagues and competitions spread out across the planet. The best soccer betting sites should therefore offer all sorts of club and international competitions from across the globe.
Naturally, we’re going to want to see the MLS as well as all the top European Leagues – including the EPL, La Liga and the Serie A. In addition though, we know that some of our users are a hardcore soccer fans, who want to find the most niche leagues from the far-flung corners of the galaxy. Therefore when looking for sites that cater for fans of soccer betting online specifically, we’re looking for those that go the extra mile.
The market matrix
As important as the range of leagues and competitions is the range of soccer betting markets available. As a soccer fan, I can only imagine that you’d soon feel pretty limited if all that was on offer were winning markets and outrights for each competition. Soccer recently overtook horse racing as the single most popular betting sports on the planet – and perhaps the whole universe. Therefore soccer naturally has more betting markets that are specific to it than almost any other sport in the gambling galaxy today.
As well as the universal sports betting markets, such as handicaps, points, spreads and over/unders, we also want to see soccer-specific betting types that will send fans shooting for the soccer stars. What I’m talking about here are both teams to score markets, first goal scorer picks and more. This goes right down to the almost geeky soccer markets like betting on the amount of corners or throw ins that may happen in a single game.
We have to admit that the Brits and the Europeans have been the trailblazers in the gamabling galaxy when it comes to soccer betting online. One of the best things to result from British and European soccer betting culture is their love of combo bets and accumulators. Nothing can make a weekend of action packed soccer more exciting than having a bumper soccer accumulator bet on. It’s with that in mind that a good soccer betting site in our eyes always has to have a strong focus on combination and accumulator bets.
Live action soccer betting
In addition to being the most popular gambling sport on Earth, soccer is also perhaps one of the sports that best lends itself to live or in-play betting. Things can change quickly in the beautiful game, and we know that fans of soccer betting for today love to get in on the action as soon as they can.
We therefore feel that the best soccer betting sites in the galaxy also have to have an a-grade live betting facility on offer. This means excellent betting markets being offered and updated in real time with lightning speed, competitive odds.
2021: A soccer betting odds-essy
Most betting sites will claim that they have the best odds in the galaxy, or that they offer frequent odds boosters specifically for soccer fanatics. However, myself and the experts really put all of the betting sites we review to the test to ensure that their soccer odds are on point and offer us the best value as intergalactic punters. As well as being good, the live betting soccer odds need to be on-point and updated at lightning speed.
To Infinity, and beyond the bonuses!
General betting bonuses are great, but if soccer is truly at the epicenter of what you want in the gambling galaxy, then you want to find a place that caters to that. Myself and the experts have therefore scoured the galaxy to find not only the best bonuses that are advertised as being soccer-specific, but also those you didn’t know can be adapted and better used by soccer gamblers.
What makes a five star rated soccer site?
For a soccer betting site to attain one of our coveted five star ratings, it has to be near perfect across all categories. As well as rating soccer sites based on the specifics above, our experts falso test sites based on a number of criteria that applies to all manner of betting sites in the galaxy. We’re fully transparent here at PlayersBest, which is why you can also find how we’ve rated a betting site with regards to each category, as well as its overall rating.
