It is a well known fact that more goals are now being scored in today’s game than at any other time in history and sports bettors are queuing up to find the best way to capitalise on this change.
You only need to thumb through the weekend football results to see just how many high-scoring matches are now being played out, so what is the best way to profit from this?
Over 2.5 goals
The most natural way is to back the industry standard of there being three goals or more in a given match. One team could win 3-0 or one side could lose 1-2, but as long as three goals are scored then the bet will win.
You can check out a variety of football stats sites to analyse what leagues and indeed what clubs score more goals than others and this is a useful too.
It’s important to recognise differences in the goal records for each club between home and away biases. Some sides tend to concede far more goals away from home than they do at home, whilst other sides tend to score far more goals at home than on their travels.
Both Teams to Score
This is a useful bet when you think there will be goals in a match and neither side will be able to keep a clean sheet. sbobet
Sometimes known as ‘Goals Galore’ or ‘GG’ this bet is proving to be increasingly popular as numbers of clean sheets continue to fall. Odds on the whole tend to be marginally higher than the over 2.5 goals market, although this depends on each individual match.
A popular selection if you fancy an underdog scoring or a clear favourite netting two or three times, the team goals market backs a certain team to score 1 or more, 2 or more, or 3 or more goals in a given match.
Often backing a favourite to score three or more goals can be quite profitable, when the odds of a straight win are exceptionally low.
A team will naturally have a propensity to score or concede more in a certain half or even interval.
Matching this with their opponents can lend a higher probability as to which half may contain more goals.
There are various different markets here, you can either back the half with most goals or you can back how many goals are scored in each half; a market that looks increasingly undervalued.
