The knockout stage of a soccer tournament can cause confusion for new soccer bettors, since some bets count if they hit in extra time, but some do not.

Most major markets only count the first 90 minutes, not extra time. And most American sportsbooks will label whether a bet includes extra time, but the default is that they do not. That includes most same game parlay legs — those props are usually 90 minutes only.

Here are a few examples of how things differ by bet type and market.

What Soccer Bets Count Extra Time?

3-Way Moneyline

If you're betting a team to win and draw was one of the options, extra time will not count toward your bet.

Say you bet USA vs. England in a hypothetical World Cup knockout stage match (because extra time isn't played in the group stage, we'll have to pretend).

The main market FanDuel shows you immediately lists three options. This is called a three-way line.

  • England: -170
  • USA: +500
  • Draw: +290

Your wager will lose if you bet USA or England and the game goes to extra time because draw was one of the options at the end of 90 minutes.

2-Way Moneyline

If you're betting on a team and there is no draw listed and if the game ends in a tie after 90 minutes, your bet will push and be refunded.

Most American sports cannot or rarely end in ties, which is why you really only see two-way moneylines in the NFL, MLB or NBA, and not three-way like you do in soccer. These types of moneylines are also available for soccer, but not usually as the default option at sportsbooks. You may have to dig a little deeper to find them.

However, that causes some vastly different prices because you get the safety of the tie being refunded.

In this scenario, England is -550 and the U.S. is +340 — both big changes from their three-way prices above.

"To Lift the Trophy" Bets

When you get to a tournament final, there will be another market called "to lift the trophy," or something to that effect.

This is a two-way market that just requires you to pick the winner of the match, including extra time and penalty kicks. Again, you'll have to pay a bigger price than the three-way moneyline because you get the safety of the team potentially winning in extra time or PKs.

What About Totals?

Most totals will only be for the first 90 minutes, unless otherwise noted. That means if you bet under 2.5 goals and it ends 1-1 in regulation, you'll win your bet no matter what — even if it ends 2-1 in extra time.

How About Props?

Most props will not include extra time, unless otherwise noted. So if you bet the final score to be England 2, France 1 and it ends 1-1 after regulation, you'll lose your bet. Even if England wins 2-1 in extra time.

Examples of props that don't include extra time:

  • Exact score
  • Asian handicap
  • Corner kicks
  • Anytime goal scorer
