Betting on FIFA has grown gradually in popularity but exploded in the first few months of 2020 as the Coronavirus pandemic wiped out all major football leagues across the world.

Instead, fans looked elsewhere for their football fix and increasing numbers began to bet on FIFA.
As an esport, FIFA still has much room to grow and the scene is by no means as well established as the likes of CS:GO or League of Legends. That said, its potential has clearly been recognised, with many of the biggest clubs in the game hiring their own pros to represent them in FIFA esports.

How does FIFA betting work?
Betting on FIFA is a lot like betting on real football matches. Many of the betting options are the same. Markets include:
- Match outcome
- Correct score
- Both teams to score
- Total goals (over / under)
- Asian Handicap
- Double chance
1. Match outcome
This is FIFA betting in its simplest form. Pick which team you think will win or whether you think it will be a draw.
Odds at Luckbox are in decimals and the favourites are the team with the smallest odds - for example 1.5.
It's worth noting that bets are on outcomes in "ordinary time" - that is the match in 90 minutes and doesn't include extra time or penalties.
2. Correct score
What do you think the final score will be? Choose from a range of options to predict the score. The specifics involved mean the odds on this market are usually very juicy.
3. Both teams to score
Are these players renowned for their attacking skills? Is one team super strong defensively? This is a binary market where you can choose "yes" or "no" and the odds will be determined by the past performances of the players involved, the teams they use and their opponent on this occasion.
4. Total goals
This is over/under market lets fans predict the total amount of goals in the game or a given half. It doesn't matter which team gets the goals, they all count.
Under 1.5 goals in ordinary time, for example means exactly one goal in the match would be a winning bet. Over 5.5 goals, on the other hand, would mean you need at least six goals to be scored to win your bet. So it could be 3-3, 4-2, 6-0 - any scoreline as long as there are six or more goals.
5. Asian Handicap
The Asian Handicap market, so called because of its popularity with sports fans in Asia, is another great way to bet on FIFA. Effectively it gives one of the teams a virtual head start.
So, for example, Arsenal with a handicap of -1.5 would need to win 2-0 for the bet to be a winner.
In Asian Handicap betting, there are also "quarter lines" such as -0.25, where you get half of your stake back. For example, Liverpool -0.25, you would need them to win to win your bet but a draw would see half your steak returned.
6. Double chance
Double chance is a way to cover multiple outcomes when placing a bet on FIFA - it makes FIFA markets that usually have three options into binary markets:
- Team A or draw - the bet wins unless Team B wins
- Team B or draw - the bet wins unless Team A wins
- Team A or Team B - the bet wins unless it's a draw
