What are the 90 minutes betting rules in football, and what happens if my bet goes to extra-time.

90 Minutes Betting Rules

Betting on the 90 minutes market in football is having a bet on who you think will win that particular football match. A 90 minutes bet includes stoppage time, but not extra-time, and not penalties.

A bet on 90 minutes is the most popular in football betting, and is the first odds you will see on any football match when you visit any bookmaker's website.

90 Minutes Football Betting

What is 90 Minutes in Football Betting Terms?

There are three possible outcomes on 90 minutes betting. They are home win, draw, or away win. The bookmakers can describe 90 minutes football betting in numerous different ways.

90 minutes betting is a bet on who you think will win in normal regular time. What this means is, 90 minutes plus stoppage time.

These can be 1X2 betting, Win/Draw/Win, or Home/Draw/Away, depending on which bookie you use.

Stoppage time is the few minutes that get added onto nearly every football match, it is NOT extra time.



What Happens If My Bet Goes To Extra-Time?

So, you want to know is your football bet include Extra Time/Penalties - well the short answer is No, your football bet does not include Extra Time or Penalties.

Football betting rules are based on 90 minutes and stoppage (added) time only. Meaning the outcome of your bet will be decided on the result at 90 minutes, not after extra-time.

For example, if you bet on Liverpool to beat Man Utd in an FA Cup match, and the match is 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes, and then Liverpool win after extra-time, or even on penalties, your bet would be a loser.

This is because the match was 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes. Meaning the official betting outcome is draw.

There are exceptions to this rule in cup matches, or knock out matches - such as the FA Cup, or any knock out round of the Champions League, World Cup, etc.

This is where you have a bet on the team to win the tie outright, or the method of victory.

So for example, if Real Madrid are playing Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final, you may think Madrid will make it to the final

In this instance, you need Madrid to win the tie. This can be by any method, across the two legs, in extra-time, or penalties.

Difference Between Stoppage Time And Extra-Time

Extra-time doesn't occur in league matches, only stoppage time. The only time you will get extra-time is in cup competitions, ie, the World Cup, FA Cup, etc, etc.

Stoppage time can occur in every football match, both league and cup. It's added on when the clock gets to 90 minutes, and the betting rules apply to stoppage time.

Stoppage time is for a combination of injuries, substitutions, goal celebrations, and general delays. It is only generally for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Extra-time is the 30 minutes extra you get when a match is level at the end of 90 minutes (and stoppage time). You will only get extra-time in knock-out matches, such as the World Cup, or FA Cup.

90 Minutes Betting Rules In The League

If you have a 90 minutes bet in the Premier League (or any league), the bookmakers will pay out on the result at the end of the match.

For example, if a match is 1-0 to Manchester United at 90 minutes, but their opponents (Liverpool) equalise in the 94th minute (stoppage time), then it is classed as a 1-1 draw.

The fact that United were leading 1-0 on 90 minutes is irrelevant. It is the result at the end of the match that determines the outcome of the bet. In this example, that would be 1-1.
