Betting on sport has changed drastically over the past ten years, and the popularity of the transfer market in the world of football has added a further dynamic betting market for punters to enjoy. They can now wager their money on where specific players will end up, and the transfer betting markets involving players moving to Liverpool are some of the most competitive.
Liverpool have been excellent in the transfer windows over recent seasons and have brought in the likes of Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah. All of which punters could have bet on with their sportsbooks.
What is Transfer Betting?
There are two transfer windows per calendar year. The most prominent of the two is during the summer months where there is no Premier League action, with the second taking place during the month of January. During this time, clubs can acquire and sell members of their squad to other sides.
The two clubs must first agree on a price for the player, before then agreeing on the wages that their new player will be paid. It is an exciting time of the season, and now it is a whole lot more exciting with the Liverpool betting markets available.
How to Bet on Transfers?
Betting on Liverpool players or players from other clubs like Manchester United to leave or sign for the club can make for an interest during the off-season, and in essence, it is very simple. You will find ‘Transfer Specials’, ‘Next Club’ and ‘Club After Summer/Winter Transfer Window’ markets on all the leading sportsbooks.
From here, you can find the player that you believe will be signing for Liverpool and place a wager on them to sign for the club. The bet is a simple win or lose depending on whether the player you have bet on is officially announced by the club.
For example, if you bet on Ryan Fraser to sign for Liverpool, then the Bournemouth winger must sign for the Reds for the bet to be a winner. The bet is settled as a winner when the club officially announces a player has signed for the club. It is settled as a loser should the deadline pass, and the player hasn’t moved to Liverpool.
