How Sportsbooks create Volleyball Bets
For example, if you have a match between the Incheon Korean Air Jumbos and the Suwon KEPCO Vixtorm the Match betting odds will look like this:
Incheon Korean Air Jumbos: 1.09
Suwon KEPCO Vixtorm: 3.10
Incheon Korean Air Jumbos is the stronger team and will probably win. Thus, if you bet 10 Wong on the Incheon Korean Air Jumbos and they win the match you get ₩10.9. On the other hand if you bet on the Suwon KEPCO Vixtorm and they win you get ₩31.

Most Popular types of Volleyball Bets
Volleyball Match Betting
The easiest wager that can be made on volleyball is Match Betting. This is because you are simply placing a bet on the outcome of the match. Thus, you are betting on which team will win and nothing else.
Point Spread Betting
Volleyball Point Spread Betting or handicap betting is where the underdog gets an advantage in terms of betting. It means that the odds are set where in order to win your bet, the favorite team has to win by a certain number of points.
Volleyball handicap betting odds look like this:
- Korean National Football Team +2.5 at 1.4 odds
- Chinese National Volleyball Team +1.5 at 2.3 odds
Thus, if you bet on the Korean National Volleyball Team, they have to win by 2.5 points to win the bet.
In this type of bet, you bet on the total number of points made during the match. Therefore, it is not important which team wins. This type of bet is very popular as the volleyball odds are more or less the same.
Furthermore, you are betting whether the total score will be over or under the prediction. Here is an example:
Hwaseong IBK Altos vs. GS Caltex Seoul KIXX
- Over 45.5 at 1.72 odds
- Under 45.5 at 2 odds
If you bet on the over, you are betting that the total score of the match will be over 45.5 points. Thus, you win ₩17.2. On the other hand, if you bet on the under, you bet that the final score will be under 45.5. Thus, if you win the bet you get ₩20.
Set Betting on volleyball is easy enough to understand. You are basically betting on which team will win a specific set during the game. Thus, the bet only applies to that specific set.
A future bet is when you bet on the outcome of a specific volleyball event. An example is a future bet on the Olympic Volleyball Tournament. Thus a future bet would be betting on which team will win the entire tournament.
