Both teams to score tips

To win more both teams to score predictions, select matches in which the teams:

Screenshot from Flashscore.com. Ideal situation. Clyde scores to all home games. They accept goals too.

Further conditions that will increase the chances to win are:

  • Team news. Significant absences in both defences.
  • No significant absences in both attacking lines.
  • A second leg match where the away team has to score and win to qualify.
  • The field and the weather are in good condition.
  • The time that the match kicks off. Early kick-offs can be dull for players.
  • Head-to-head stats between the teams.

Alternative Goal Markets

If you seek to win more money with small stakes, try the following alternative markets:

Both teams to score and win

In this case, you have to predict which team will win the game too. Most bookmakers refer to this market as 'Result / Both teams to score'.

Odds example of the Premier League game Arsenal vs Liverpool - BTTS and win market:

Arsenal & Yes @5.50
Liverpool & Yes @4.50

Of course, this market has many risks involved. But the odds are higher and it can bring you more profits if you use it with patience.

Let's say that you believe to a big team to win a game. You believe that they will receive at least a goal too. This market can boost your winnings.

If used as a double (two matches accumulator), the total odds will be great. You can win a good amount with a small stake.

Seek for teams with weak defences and strong attackers. In particular, if they play away and look like the favourite according to odds.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals

In this certain market, you need both teams to achieve at least a goal and at least three goals in the game. With scores like 1-2, 2-1, 2-2, 3-1, 1-3, 3-2, 2-3, 3-3 etc, the bet is a winner. In most cases, you need a goal fest game.

Odds Example: Manchester City vs Tottenham

Over 2.5 & Yes @2.20
Over 2.5 & No @8.00

Again the odds are higher than the simple option. But in most cases, are lower than the Result / BTTS option.

Result / Total Goals

This isn't the same as the first alternative market described above. You need to predict the winner and the number of goals.

Odds Example: Man Utd vs Newcastle

Man Utd & Over 2.5 @3.75
Newcastle & over 2.5 @11.00
