The both teams to score market has become one of the fastest growing strategies among sports bettors in the last few years.
Basically, the sports bettor will select a game where he thinks both teams will score at some time or point in the match.
The bettor can do this at any time and does not make a difference how many goals each team scores.
Just as long as it’s one or more goals for each side.
Unlike most betting strategies, the result of the match makes no difference to the punter or bettor. Once both teams score a goal the market will be paid out. But, if one or both teams fail to score a goal, then the punters bet becomes a losing bet..
One of the key things you’ll want to look at in the match up for both teams to score are the teams playing style overall, and against one another. Look to determine which team is more attack or offence minded. The bettor will need a team that is solid going forward, and also has some sort of leaky defense. Why? Because, you’ll need the team to concede the odd goal too.
For both teams to score, it is not always going to be the best bet to place your money on the stronger team, such as Man U, or Barcelona. While they are more likely to score more goals in their league, they are teams who will also not give up as many goals either.
Why most sports bettors lose across many sports is that they place too much emphasis on the opposition, and the media-hyped teams. Teams hyped by the media typically are those racking up the scores. But in fact, the sports bettor should be looking at teams that are lower in the league who are most likely going to struggle to keep a clean sheet, but also can give up the odd goals.
So how do you determine matches to bet on for both teams to score?
Firstly, Begin With Strikers and Defenders
For both teams to score to work, it is imperative for any sports bettor who bets on soccer and applies this betting strategy to start off getting familiar with what the media is saying before placing a bet.
If the key striker on the team has failed as of late, whether it be the fitness test, goals forward or average scoring streak in the last X games, will give the bettor some insight into the confidence or opportunity the strikers goal performance will reduced.
Conversely, if the team’s best defender is in top performance (goals against), or back from injury then the confidence rating will be higher and more likely not many goals will be conceded. Understanding the star striker(s) and defender(s) performance can have a massive impact on how you approach this soccer betting strategy.
Secondly, Observe Goals Scored and Conceded
A second data point in this betting system is the team’s current scoring and conceding form. What I mean by this is the habits the teams demonstrate scoring goals, or conceding goals, both individually as a team and against each other.
What you’ll want to look for is a weak defense and a strong offence. It can be challenging to find both attributes on a team, but if the punter can, then it’s the best bet to just stay away from the team.
However most teams are stronger on one side, observe the last 5-8 games of both teams and determine if goals were involved. By doing this you’ll get a feel for the teams form in both their home and away performance, and then apply this to the upcoming soccer fixture. Taking this point into consideration is just as important as the latter, because even the strongest or weakest teams will showcase differences in their home or away games, especially if they’ve been on the road for the last few matches.
