Wincast Betting Term Meaning
Wincast bets are commonly used in football and soccer betting. Wincasts can also be used in sports where there are goalscorers and winning teams.
A wincast simply involves selecting the winning team and a player to score at any time during the match. Therefore, a wincast is a combination of the full time result and anytime goalscorer markets.
Let’s look at an international match between England and Russia. If the odds on England to win is 1.60 and the odds on Harry Kane to score at anytime is 1.50, then the odds of these two outcomes combined would be 2.40.
The odds in a wincast can often be lower than multiplying the odds in the full time result and anytime goalscorer markets so do your homework and compare the odds with different bookmakers.
When to place Wincast Bets
Wincast bets can be placed when you are confident in a team winning and a player scoring. They are commonly associated with teams that are short priced favourites where bettors are looking for higher odds and more value.
If you are expecting a big game from striker in a particular match, there are some useful tips to maximise your chances of hitting the anytime goalscorer portion of the wincast bet. Players that take a large amount of shots and players that take penalties and free kicks are particularly useful.
A wincast can be placed when a player is fancied to score at least one goal and the opposing team is not expected to score.
One particular statistic that can help when placing wincasts is a teams winning percentage when a certain player scores. If England wins 80% of the time when Harry Kane scores then that could be a wincast that provides a profit if consistently played over a certain period of time.
Wincast Money Back Specials
Wincast bets can be offered by online bookmakers as money back specials. In an international match between England and Russia, if the wincast bet is England to win and Harry Kane to score anytime, the bookmaker could offer money back if England Win and Harry Kane does not score.
Alternatively, the bookmaker could offer money back if Harry Kane scores but England fail to win.
