Updated: 27 May 2022

Betting on the Japan J1 League

The Japan J1 League is one of the biggest domestic club competitions in Asia, with teams such as Kawasaki Frontale, Yokohama F. Marinos and Sagan Tosu all battling it out for top honours.

There is a regular chance to place bets on the Japan J1 League matches, with the trusted betting sites creating an enormous number of pre-match and in-play betting markets.

Just like the Premier League, there are 20 teams competing in the Japanese top flight, with the J1 betting odds portal offering a wide range of matches so you can put together an accumulator bet or alternatively place single bets on the individual games.

Before kick-off, you can head to the football or soccer section of an online betting site and access the latest markets and odds. There is often the chance to enjoy cash out on your J1 League bets so you can make money before the final whistle by closing out your bet early.

Understanding Japan J1 League Betting Odds

The Japan J1 League betting odds are available several days before the matches kick off. The full-time result betting market is the first one to be priced up and it's often the case that the leading teams are odds-on to win, especially if they're the home side. Should you choose to place a multiple bet, then the prices are combined together.

While the Japanese football betting odds tend to remain fairly static on a pre-match basis, the in-play betting odds are subject to bigger fluctuations. The prices change in accordance with what's happening in the J1 League match and you can try and secure the value.

Top Japan J1 League Betting Markets to Consider

When it comes to sports betting, the full-time result betting market is always a good place to start with the Japan J1 League, you are able to click on the match which interests you the most and survey a much wider range of available markets. You can choose from double chance, correct score and half-time/full-time which are among the most popular betting options.

Alternatively, you might want to bet on a J1 League betting market where you can select both teams to score, Asian handicap and goal line. The Asian Handicap margins can often be really tight and it means that you can get more competitive margins than with other markets.

Your chosen sportsbook will offer you the chance to place Japan J1 League bet builder selections and this is where you focus on a particular match and make selections within the game. It's essentially a same game multi where you can go through the markets and combine them together in a multiple bet.

Some betting customers prefer to place their J1 League bets when the games go in-play. So if you're betting on Nagoya Grampus, Vissel Kobe and Urawa Red Diamonds matches, there is the chance to look at the league table and assess the state of play before deciding which way to place your bets.

The advantage of this is that you can identify any key trends before online wagering. If your preferred betting site offer a cash out option, this is where you can use it to great effect. Cash out allows you to limit your losses if your bet has turned sour or if it looks as though it's not going to land after a promising start.

We would recommend betting responsibly and starting off by looking at the full-time result market along with options such as over/under 2.5 goals and both teams to score. These are two-way markets where you can either place single bets or alternatively have a multiple bet.
