While it’s pretty much guaranteed that placing money on a football team to win in their next fixture is going to continue as the most popular market for betting on football, many would say that the Both Teams To Score bet comes as a close second. By backing the Both Teams To Score market, you’re predicting each team to score at least once over ninety minutes, leaving far less pressure on the outcome of the match.
The popularity surrounding backing Both Teams To Score bets is understandable when you consider the fun factor which comes through watching them unfold, with far less on the line than you’ll find with getting behind the Match Result or Full-Time Result market. There’s more than one advantage to backing your own Both Teams To Score bet, including:
Similar odds and availability to football win markets
Although in backing an Over 2.5 Goals bet you’ll only receive a low price for a likely outcome, any Both Teams To Score bet you make will tend to be handed the same range of price as you’d find with backing a team to win. Under the same logic, these bets are also as easily available as the Match Result market, with even the vaguest of football matches being given a price for Both Teams To Score within ninety minutes. You’re also able to back a Both Teams To Score bet in-play or as part of a SkyBet RequestABet, so the possibilities really are endless with most bookmakers.
More chance of landing a BTTS bet
If you were to back a team to win and they end up being four goals down with ten minutes left to play, it’s easy to assume that they will lose that game. This is completely different with betting on Both Teams To Score tips, where even if the team you’ve backed is losing 4-0 in the remaining few minutes, your selection will be classed as a winner as long as the team you’ve backed score at least once, which could still happen in the final few seconds.
Options for multiple betting
Some markets aren’t available as football accumulators or even as doubles, but you’ll find as much freedom to bet on Both Teams To Score bets as you’ll find with Match Result, Over 2.5 Goals, and correct score bets. A lot of football tipster websites make Both Teams To Score trebles and accumulators, with as much chance of landing either depending on the football fixtures you choose to include.
