Both Teams to Score is an exciting way to bet on football
One of the most popular football betting markets is Both Teams to Score, with customers enjoying the thrill of picking matches where they feel at least one goal will be scored by either team.
If you’re sat down in front of Soccer Saturday, it’s exciting to have a Both Teams to Score coupon on the go so that Jeff Stelling announcing the latest goal from around the grounds could move you a step nearer to winning your bet.
The good thing about this bet is that you can win a decent profit from a small stake if you’re having an accumulator bet, while it doesn’t involve betting on a particular team to win their match. You also get a chance of winning even if the game is goalless with ten minutes left as opposed to a match bet where your team could be trailing by two or three goals at the break.
What’s the best betting strategy?
Some punters will pick out a “banker” or two when it comes to matches where both teams are likely to score, then add them into multiples with other games. For example, Norwich v Everton might be paired with two other matches so that a profit is enjoyed if Game B or Game C also results in both teams scoring.
Naturally, if you place a ten-game accumulator, you need twenty teams to find the net during the ninety minutes. It’s therefore a risky bet, although by the same token, you won’t get a huge return for your money by betting on single matches with this wager.
The trick is to find the middle ground and look at the previous results involving each team. It might be that a certain game will see both sides attacking due to their position in the league table, or alternatively you might find that a cagey encounter is on the cards, especially if it’s the second leg of a European tie where one team has a lead to defend.
You can bet on Yes and No!
The majority of punters like to place a bet on matches where they think both teams will score although there is also the option to bet on No as well as Yes, so that you win your bet if the game is goalless or just one teams finds the back of the net. You might back No if you think it will be a low-scoring contest or if you’re expecting one team to dominate.
You can bet Both Teams to Score In-Play
It’s an exciting betting market and one where the odds change until both teams find the net or the final whistle blows! With twenty minutes of the game remaining and the home team 1-0 down and piling forward, the bookies are constantly changing the price on this market but do you back Yes or No?!
BTTS accumulators are very popular
Naturally, the odds for a single bet tend to be no bigger than 6/4 or 2/1 although you can boost your potential winnings by placing an accumulator bet which means selecting a handful of games where you expect the net to bulge at both ends.
The trick is to avoid getting too greedy and go for football matches where you feel there is a genuine chance of both teams finding the net. Naturally, it’s difficult to find ten games where the twenty teams will all score, although it’s worth looking at the stats and starting off with a treble or four-fold to see if you can make some money on this market.
Betfred have Goals Galore when both teams score!
Several bookmakers offer Both Teams to Score coupons, although this type of bet is most synonymous with Betfred who have promoted this type of bet through television advertising and there are bonuses that can be enjoyed when you strike a winning wager.
Goals Galore is naturally about backing the Yes option when it comes to both teams scoring, with this bookie paying odds of 9/2 when you get three selections correct, 9/1 when you get four selections correct and a massive 16/1 when you pick five games where the net bulges at both ends.
If you really want to chance your arm, you can enjoy odds of 5000/1 by getting 15 teams correct so you’re essentially backing 30 teams to score in those games although the long list at Betfred means that this can happen.
You can often get money back if your acca comes close
Bookmakers such as Paddy Power will often run a money back special which means that customers can enjoy cash back on BTTS accumulators if one match lets them down, something that is always a possibility.
