Both teams to score predictions

    Betting is a practice as old as competition itself. Over the years, however, people have devised more types of bets than simply predicting the final winner. In fact, today we have up to dozens of different options, and knowing and completely understanding all of them can seem like a chore.

    Have no fear, though: Betting Fellow is here to help. This in-depth but easy to follow betting guide will help you understand and make good use of Both Teams to Score – one of the most popular of these options.

The latest Both teams to Score predictions

18/04/2021

Nantes - Olympique Lyonnais

It would take a small miracle for the hosts to get to a stalemate this match, let alone win somehow. A quick look at the 6.50 price for a home win should be enough to tell you that, though.

If you’re just looking for a simple 1X2 football bet, we suggest backing the away team in this match. Olympique Lyonnais are clearly more likely to win this matchup, though Nantes are more than able to put up a good fight.

Milan - Genoa

Most fans are expecting nothing short of a decisive victory for Milan. Though an upset is not impossible, it’s extremely unlikely that this match will end in anything that’s not a home win.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Genoa stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 6.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

The latest showing from Milan can be called a tour de f... read more

Manchester United - Burnley

This is a fairly one-sided matchup in the hosts’ favour. While there may be a tiny chance of a draw or even an upset, we wouldn’t count on it. Manchester United winning is by far the most likely outcome.

Considering what they’re up against, Burnley can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 10.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Real Betis - Valencia

Real Betis are expected to win here, but we can’t call such betting predictions completely foolproof. Valencia may surprise us yet, and even a tie game seems a decent possibility from where we’re standing.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Valencia seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.30, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

The previous round ended with a 1:1 draw at home for Betis. The scores ... read more

Nîmes - Strasbourg

Nîmes are no strangers to surprises but with 3.70 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

Details can make a big difference in matches like this one. One way for Strasbourg to reach their goal in this game is to stick firmly to their game plan and execute it flawlessly.

The previous round was fairly uneventful for both Nîmes and Brest , the opposing home team. Considering an away win was priced at 2.00 with most top online bookies, how... read more

Kasımpaşa - Yeni Malatyaspor

Though Kasımpaşa are the favourites between these two teams, this is a fairly balanced matchup. All three possible outcomes of a Result bet are quite possible, which at least means we may get to see an exciting game.

The 3.45 away win betting odds indicate that Yeni Malatyaspor are the underdogs of this matchup. The difference is not huge, though, so both a victory for the visitors and are draw are still on the table.

Sampdoria are no strangers to surprises but with 4.75 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

Considering the balance of power in this match, it seems that a draw may be the extent of the home team’s ambition. Napoli are at a clear advantage, which is reflected in the 1.77 odds for an away win 1X2 bet.

Sampdoria are coming off from a 1:1 draw in an away game at Milan . Betting predictions for that game were heavily in their opponents... read more

Burnley - Newcastle United

Predicting which side will win this match based on odds alone is a complete toss-up. We would say the hosts have a bit of an advantage, but their success is by no means assured.

Things are looking problematic for the visiting side. They are going up against a stronger team which also has a home pitch advantage. Victory is still within reach – they’ll just have to work harder than usual to get it.

Lens - Lorient

Lens might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as Lorient are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

The odds are stacked heavily against Lorient here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Lens are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 3.90.

Rennes should not have bigger problems running away with three points in this match if they stick to their game plan. However, Nantes can be a tough nut to crack and the home side need to be on top of their game.

The odds are stacked heavily against Nantes here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Rennes are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.60.

SønderjyskE - Horsens

Though the home team can be called favourites, they can’t quite relax going into the match at Horsens. Their advantage is quite narrow, and just a few mistakes could end up costing them the game.

The away team’s chances of winning this Sunday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a matchup with SønderjyskE, and the fact that they’re the visiting team isn’t making things any easier.

This is a fairly one-sided matchup in the hosts’ favour. While there may be a tiny chance of a draw or even an upset, we wouldn’t count on it. Juventus winning is by far the most likely outcome.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Genoa are given 13.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

The away team’s chances of winning this Sunday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a matchup with Sturm Graz, and the fact that they’re the visiting team isn’t making things any easier.

With the odds slightly in the hosts’ favour, they have a decent shot at walking away with 3 points. Still, Torino can pull off both a win or a draw, so the hosts can’t afford to let their guard down.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Torino are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

Athletic Bilbao - Deportivo Alavés

With bookies pricing a home win at 1.95, it’s clear the match may yet go either way. The hosts have a distinct advantage, of course, but both a draw and an away win are quite possible outcomes.

Deportivo Alavés appear severely unprepared for a clash with Athletic Bilbao, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.75 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Parma - Milan

The most probable outcome of this match is Parma getting completely overwhelmed. They are underdogs by a considerable margin, and it’s not likely even the most optimistic of their fans are expecting them to pull off a victory.

Having a 1.71 selection on your slip can be a big boost to your potential winnings and with Milan largely expected to beat Parma, you’d be wise to use it.

Watford - Reading

By pricing a home win at around 1.90, the bookies made it clear that Watford are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

It would be a minor miracle for Reading to win at The Hornets, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.75 price on most online sportsbooks.

By pricing a home win at around 2.00, the bookies made it clear that Huesca are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

The matchup this Friday is rather one-sided, with Elche seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.50, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Nîmes - Saint-Étienne

Though the match can honestly go either way, Nîmes will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 3.35 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

Saint-Étienne are regarded as favourites, but that doesn’t mean they can relax. With an almost negligible difference in the perceived strength of these two teams, sub-standard play is a recipe for disaster.

Brest will give Lorient a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.45 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

Brest are not a team that backs down from a challenge and we expect them to give their best in an effort to claim a victory in this match.

Lorient are probably reasonably satisfied with the result of their previous Ligue 1 match at Nantes . They went into it as clear underdogs with a home-field disadvantage, and thin... read more

Lens are heading into a difficult fight, but it’s far from hopeless. They may need to bring their best, but the match can go any way at this point. The odds of an away win are 2.90 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

The visitors are not walking into an easy match by any means, but they should be able to come out on top. Winning this match will be a welcome boost to their rankings, though such an outcome is priced at 2.25.

Nantes are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Lorient. The odds of 2.30 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating Nantes is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Lorient.

Gençlerbirliği will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Kasımpaşa don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 3.00 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

2.45 on an away match is what many punters run away from but Kasımpaşa are a team capable of big things. Therefore, backing them in this match might not be a bad idea after all.

Hatayspor will need to bring their top form if they want 3 points from this matchup – and they do. Rizespor are not easy pickings, although the visitors are widely seen as close favourites.

More about Both teams to score predictions

    Betting is a practice as old as competition itself. Over the years, however, people have devised more types of bets than simply predicting the final winner. In fact, today we have up to dozens of different options, and knowing and completely understanding all of them can seem like a chore.

    Have no fear, though: Betting Fellow is here to help. This in-depth but easy to follow betting guide will help you understand and make good use of Both Teams to Score – one of the most popular of these options.

    More about Both Teams To Score Predictions

What is BTTS Betting?

Often abbreviated to BTTS, Both Teams to Score is a fairly simple concept to wrap your head around.

Basically, you’re betting on whether both teams will manage to score at least once or not. The final winner doesn’t matter. The final score doesn’t matter. The timing of the goals scored? You guessed it – doesn’t matter. As long as neither team has a 0 on the scoreboard at the final whistle, you’re good to go.

One thing to note is that BTTS betting is pretty much unique to football. This is in large part due to the fact that not a lot of goals are scored in your average football game, relatively speaking. Be honest, when’s the last time you saw a basketball game in which a team failed to score a single point? So if you’re looking for BTTS wagers, football betting is pretty much your only choice.

Why Bet on BTTS?

There are several advantages to BTTS betting. Let’s go over them one by one:

Simplicity

The binary nature of BTTS bets makes it simple to understand them and calculate the odds for them. Many even consider them somewhat easier to predict than most typical bets. As a result, BTTS accumulators are a popular choice among punters worldwide

Probability

Statistically speaking, between 65% and 72% of all professional football matches have at least one point per team at the end. Combine this fact with some knowledge of the game and the teams, and BTTS might be the closest thing to a safe bet you could find.

Of course, this means that the potential for winnings is limited as well. Don’t expect to bet small and win big here. This is another reason why BTTS is often found in accumulators.

Not Over Until It’s Over

Picture this:

it’s halftime, the last leg of your To Win Acca, and your team is losing 4-0. The odds of your bet winning here are pretty much negligible.

Therein lies the true beauty of BTTS: things could truly turn around in the last second of the match. Remember, the actual score and timing of the goals don’t matter at all for the punter. For the team in question, even if they manage a single goal during stoppage time, it’s still a crushing defeat. For your BTTS bet though? A last-minute victory!

How to Bet on BTTS?

If you got the gist of the basics above, this next step should be fairly simple.

With Both Teams to Score betting, there are only two possible outcomes. Either both teams will manage to score, or not. Only one team scoring doesn’t matter, so you have only two options: Checking “YES” on the betting tip means you’re betting that both teams will score.

Checking “NO”, conversely, means that you’re betting that one or both teams will not score.

The second option, however, doesn’t have the advantage of having a shot until the very end. In fact, it’s quite the opposite: you could lose it at the first minute, and can’t relax until the very end. Still, if you don’t think both teams will manage to put one in the net, it’s an option.

How to Choose Matches to Bet on BTTS?

Figuring out which match is a good candidate for a BTTS bet can be tricky. A team’s win rate and overall success is not really key information here, so the statistics can be a bit harder to figure out. Basically, you’re looking for teams that regularly score a lot of goals, but have problems on the defence. Ideally, you want two such teams facing off to have the best odds of winning.

Conversely, if you’re going for a “no” on Both Teams to Score, you want less aggressive teams with a strong defence. Sadly such matches are often fairly boring and uneventful – but you can use this to your advantage. Luckily for us, football today is all about scoring as much as possible. That’s the reason why the most famous and successful players are usually flashy goal-getters, and rarely defenders.

One good strategy for BTTS is to look for great teams playing away matches. The top teams in the world score goals in pretty much every game they play, especially against weaker opposition. However, playing away from home against a lesser team with strong support often results in a goal or two making it past their defences.

Where to bet on BTTS?

The selection of online bookies today is truly staggering, and there’s a lot of options and a lot of competition. One of the many advantages of the popularisation of online bookmakers, though, is that you can clearly see and compare different offers. Healthy competition is great for the consumer, but it’s up to you to take advantage of it.

The odds for Both Teams to Score tips are usually closely tied to the overall odds of a given betting site. Odds, markets, and potential winnings sometimes vary greatly between bookmakers. You need to thoroughly research all of these before you commit to one bookie – or risk regretting your choice later.

Luckily for you, Betting Fellow has a comprehensive list of some of the best online bookmakers in the business. We recommend taking your time to read through our overviews of all of them, but in case you can’t or won’t, here’s a short list of some options and our reasoning behind the picks:

Top Bookies for BTTS
  • Bet365. We like rooting for the underdog as much as anyone, but sometimes excellence is hard to deny. One of the reasons Bet365 is big as it is are the amazing odds they offer – BTTS odds included.
  • BetVictor. One of the pioneers of online gambling, BetVictor has a sterling reputation and some of the best odds you can find.
  • BetFair. There are other possible picks with comparable odds, but BetFair made it on this list because of the unique betting experience it offers. This betting site is a betting exchange rather than a traditional sportsbook – meaning you’re playing against other punters instead of the bookmaker.

Both Teams to Score Betting Tips

We’ve already glossed over some basic concepts and betting strategies for BTTS. Now, we’ll go over some tips and things to pay attention towhen wagering on Both Teams to Score. The Teams You might have noticed that knowing the teams themselves, the players and strategies they typically utilise, is crucial to this type of betting. Getting to know themtakes time and effort, but if you love the sport it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Remember that the internet is the greatest research tool mankind has ever devised – use it liberally.

Here are some things that mark a team as suitable for BTTS:

They often confirm the “over 2.5 goals” market.

Have an aggressive playstyle but leak a lot of goals. For instance, 4-3-3 is a typical example of an attacking formation.

On the flip side, if a team has a very defensive approach, like 5-4-1, they might be of interest for a “no” tip.

They’re currently missing crucial players. If the team’s defensive players will not be playing, for example, the odds might be in your favour. The same applies for their top goal-getters.

Also, check the head-to-head stats for the two teams. Some teams are just good at getting through another team’s defences, and vice-versa.

The Match and Other Conditions

The team composition and strategy is important, but far from the only factor that influences BTTS probability. You’ll want to pay close attention to the context of the match in question, and other miscellaneous conditions that could impact the result. Let’s go over some of them:

Home/Away (Dis)advantages.We previously mentioned this factor, but there are deeper things to consider here: some teams are affected by where they’re playing more than others. Some teams are already stronger, so you might not want them to also have a home advantage. Some may tend to be spurred on by their fans to play differently than usual. You get the picture – just use your head.

Match Context. There’s a big difference in performance between title-defining derbies and friendly games. Consider how motivated to perform a team is for a particular match. Having a lot on the line may also cause a team to take risks they might not otherwise.

Weather and Turf Conditions. Another obvious factor, but one often overlooked. Clear weather and good turf conditions are advantageous for goal-scoring.

What are BTTS Accumulators?

If you have any experience with sports betting, you should already be familiar with accumulators (Sometimes called multiples or parleys). If not, we’ll quickly go over how they work, and specifically how they interact with Both Teams to Score betting.

These types of bets combine multiple individual BTTS tips ('legs') into one bet called an accumulator. The Both Teams to Score accumulator requires all legs to succeed, so your probability of winning decreases. On the flip side, the odds all stack multiplicatively, so the potential winnings get a significant boost as well. As previously mentioned, the relatively safe nature of BTTS bets makes them a great choice for accumulators.

Both Teams to Score Betting Variations

The standard form of BTTS is a simple binary “yes” or “no”. However, variations do exist. In this section of the guide, we’ll go over some of the more common ones.

BTTS and Over/Under. This type combines Both Teams to Score with an Over/Under bet. This means that not only will you have to predict whether both teams will score, you also need there to be more or less than a specified number of goals. Most bookmakers set this number to 2.5.

BTTS in Both Halves. As the name might imply, this variation demands that both teams score at least one goal in the first half of the game, and then score again in the second half as well. Obviously, the probability of this happening is very low, so the odds are proportionally very strong.

BTTS & Result. Another combination in which you try to predict both the BTTS and the eventual winner of the match. There are six options here – a pair of either “yes” or “no” and either Home Win, Away Win, or Draw. Also harder to predict than a BTTS (or a straight result bet, for that matter) but yields better rewards.
