Betting on domestic Cup competitions

While most American professional sports play out a clear regular season, and then a winner-take-all tournament to declare a champion, soccer leagues, at least outside of the United States, typically don’t work that way. Instead, there are league campaigns taking place alongside domestic Cup competitions. A team might play a league game one week, and a Cup game the following week, and then back to the league again.

Fear not, however, Hard Rock Bet offers soccer odds on all of the largest Cup competitions around the world. Including (but not limited to!):

  • English FA Cup
  • DFB Pokal (German Cup)
  • Copa de Brasil
  • Coupe de France
  • Croatian Football Cup
  • Czech Cup
  • MLS Cup
  • Scottish Cup
  • Taça de Portugal

Champions League betting

With soccer odds on domestic leagues and domestic cups, a layman might assume that was it for soccer betting markets… not so fast. Some of the most viewed, and most bet on soccer matches of the year take place within the Champions League, or other European Cup competitions like the Europa League.

These competitions are filled out with the best teams from each European country, with strict qualification standards. Like the domestic Cups, these tournaments run concurrently with the league season beginning with a group stage, before progressing to a knockout competition to crown a prestigious champion.

The Champions League isn’t just for Europe, either. The CONCACAF Champions League features the best teams from North America, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean and is also available as a soccer betting market on Hard Rock Bet.

Popular markets include:

  • UEFA Champions League
  • UEFA Europa League
  • UEFA Europa Conference League
  • CONCACAF Champions League

Betting on international soccer

While domestic leagues and cup competitions take up the majority of the calendar year, international soccer tournaments also draw an enormous amount of fan attention and betting interest. A few times per year the best players for each country are called upon to represent their countries in international competitions. From friendlies to the World Cup, soccer odds are available no matter the importance of the game.

Hard Rock Bet offers excellent odds and accepts wagers on all major international soccer tournaments. Keep an eye out for the following competitions not just in the build up to the tournament through soccer futures betting, but each individual game within the tournament will be available as well.
