Half time Full time Predictions

    Online football betting has no shortage of different markets and betting types. If you’re hoping to really get the most out of your online betting experience, you’ll need to have all of them on your toolbelt – know what they are and how to use them.

    Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the Half Time/Full Time market.

    Half Time/Full Time, or HT/FT for short, has been one of the most popular types of bet in football for quite a while. As the name might imply, at its heart, it’s a combination of the Half Time market and the Full Time market.

    Betting Fellow has extensive betting guides for each of these two, and we recommend thoroughly going through them to get the best idea of what to do with them. In this particular tutorial, we’ll be more focused on how they interact with each other to produce a wholly new market, rather than the specifics of each part separately.

Freiburg - Bayern München

A home win is not something we would recommend betting on at the odds of 6.25 – but you’re probably aware of that already. It would take a miracle for Freiburg to pull off even a draw, let alone a win as underdogs.

Hearts - Hibernian

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Hibernian are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Hearts should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

It would be a minor miracle for Hibernian to win at Hearts, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.02 price on most online sportsbooks.

København - Nordsjælland

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

It’s highly unlikely that Nordsjælland will manage to get some points this round. København are at a considerable advantage, so even a draw would be a success for the visitors.

København are coming off of a relatively predictable victory at Silkeborg, w... read more

Boavista - Sporting Braga

The 4.60 odds on a home win result mark the hosts as clear underdogs. Things are fairly lopsided, in fact, so backing such an outcome would be quite a longshot.

Most bookies see Sporting Braga as the favourites in this matchup, though it’s important to know things can go either way. Their victory is currently priced at 1.83, indicat... read more

Rio Ave - Sporting CP

Upsets do happen in football and it’s fair to say a home win here would be a definition of the case. Rio Ave can count themselves lucky if they avoid getting completely destroyed by Sporting CP in this match.

A trip to Rio Ave can hardly be seen as a big test for Sporting CP. With 1.37 betting odds stacked in their favour, it’s hard seeing past anything other than a compelling away win here.

Trabzonspor - Adana Demirspor

We don’t expect Trabzonspor to have any issues beating Adana Demirspor. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.77 might actually be a good-value bet to consider. The visitors are not to be underestimated but on this particular instance the home side are seen as clear winners.

The away team’s chances of winning this Sunday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a... read more

Almere City - Feyenoord

Upsets do happen in football and it’s fair to say a home win here would be a definition of the case. Almere City can count themselves lucky if they avoid getting completely destroyed by Feyenoord in this match.

Any Result bet in this match other than Away Win would be quite optimistic indeed. Feyenoord seem to be on their way to a relatively easy victory, though we suppose a major slip-up is not out of the question. Don’t count on it, though.

Cagliari - Napoli

Cagliari are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Serie A, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 4.35, it’s not very likely to happen.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Napoli have a better chance of winning this clash than their opponents. They can’t afford to relax just yet though – the hosts may prove a ... read more

Rapid Wien - Austria Wien

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Austria Wien are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Rapid Wien should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

An away win in this match would be a huge surprise and an equally big achievement for Austria Wien who could consider themselves fortunate if they run away with a point in the bag.

It’s fair to say Rapid Wien demonstrated their character in the last Tipico Bundesliga clash. They held it level at the... read more

Union Berlin - Heidenheim

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Heidenheim are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Union Berlin should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

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

Farense - Moreirense

Though Farense definitely have a shot at winning this match, they’ll need to work for it. Moreirense are somewhat stronger, but the home-field advantage may be what the hosts need to shift the balance in their favour.

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.

Werder Bremen - Darmstadt 98

It’s easy to point out Werder Bremen as the clear favourites, but we wouldn’t call this match completely one-sided. The hosts are definitely more likely to win between the two, but a tie game is another possibility. An away win would be quite a surprise, but we’ve seen bigger upsets.

The current perspective makes the situation plain as day. Given the superiority of Werder... read more

With the 1.65 being what they are, we don’t expect anything other than a home win. Pulling off anything else would be a gargantuan task for Kortrijk, so we’d stay away unless you’re looking for a long shot on purpose.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Kortrijk stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match ... read more

More about Half time Full time Predictions

    Online football betting has no shortage of different markets and betting types. If you’re hoping to really get the most out of your online betting experience, you’ll need to have all of them on your toolbelt – know what they are and how to use them.

    Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the Half Time/Full Time market.

    Half Time/Full Time, or HT/FT for short, has been one of the most popular types of bet in football for quite a while. As the name might imply, at its heart, it’s a combination of the Half Time market and the Full Time market.

    Betting Fellow has extensive betting guides for each of these two, and we recommend thoroughly going through them to get the best idea of what to do with them. In this particular tutorial, we’ll be more focused on how they interact with each other to produce a wholly new market, rather than the specifics of each part separately.

What is Half Time/Full Time Betting?

Let’s get the obvious out of the way first: HT/FT tries to predict the results at the half time marker, which would be minute 45, and the results at the very end of the game – minute 90. Like the two markets it combines, HT/FT does not take into account anything that happens outside the standard timeframe of a football match. Specifically, we’re referring to injury time, extra time and a possible penalty shootout.

In order for an HT/FT bet to win, both of these parts must be predicted correctly. Only getting one half right gets you nothing, so you need to be exceptionally careful when placing such a bet.

Why Bet On Half Time/Full Time?

You might be getting a sense that this is not an easy market to get right. Predicting either one of these is hard in its own right. Both of them, though? Isn’t that just setting yourself up for failure?

Well, there’s some truth to that. But betting, and gambling in general, is all about risk management. You know what they say: he who dares – wins. Besides, there’s quite a few principles and patterns to follow here that make the market more than worthwhile in terms of providing great value.

To start with, there are 9 possible outcomes for an HT/FT bet. Statistically, those are some pretty terrible chances – but it also means that the odds offered by bookmakers are pretty good as a rule. And you have to consider that some of these options are really unlikely to happen. Once you start ticking these off, you’ll be left with a reasonable risk-to-reward ratio.

As a result, the most common way of putting HT/FT to use is picking the two most likely options for each of this market’s constituents. The idea here is to get actually decent odds where they would be very short on their own.

For example, betting that the hard favourite will win the match would have predictably terrible odds. Betting that they would have a lead on half time would be better, but still far from great. Combine the two, however, and the returns might actually be worth your time. And it’s pretty easy to see how this is far more likely to happen than what the initial 1-in-9 chances might have implied.

How To Bet On Half Time/Full Time?

There are other interesting options to consider, however. First, let’s take a look at all the different possibilities. In this list, the first selection represents the result on halftime, while the second one is the result at the end of the game.

  1. Home Lead – Home Win
  2. Home Lead – Draw
  3. Home Lead – Away Win
  4. Draw – Home Team
  5. Draw – Draw
  6. Draw – Away Win
  7. Away Lead – Away Win
  8. Away Lead – Draw
  9. Away Lead – Home Win

Out of all of these, options 1 and 7 are considered the most likely, depending on which team is the favourite. Of course, playing at home is an advantage in its own right, so option 1 has shorter baseline odds.

Option 5 can be interesting, but you need to be careful here. It’s a common rookie mistake to assume that this is just a free odds boost on a draw game. Remember that it needs to be a draw on both half time and the end. This option is only really good for games that end in 0 – 0, in which case it actually is a free odds boost. Everything else is incredibly hard to predict. So if you’re very sure the game will be long, boring, and with no goals at all - it’s worth considering.

Options 3 and 9 are, as you might have guessed, even worse. Hoping for a score upset mid-game is a longshot, and we don’t recommend it for beginners.

Options 2 and 8 are also not very likely, but actually have their uses if carefully considered. We’ll get into these later.

How to Choose Matches to Bet on Half Time/Full Time?

As stated above, there are several options with this type of betting – several approaches, and several reasons why a match might be a good idea for an HT/FT bet.

The first, most common, and probably best option is – a severely one-sided match. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: betting theory, statistics, and experienced punters all agree that low-risk bets are generally better for long-term profits with betting. However, it’s not very worthwhile to bet on matches with negligible profits either. And so, HT/FT wagers on a Home Lead – Home Win have much better odds than their 1X2 counterparts but are essentially betting on the same thing.

Furthermore, combining these into accumulators can really contribute to your bottom line.

Alternatively, you can further drive odds up by actually going for a draw in the first half. In our Half Time Betting guide, we’ve discussed at length how underdogs have a fairly decent shot at managing to maintain a null score for a while, under the right circumstances.

Furthermore, you need to consult statistics. Some teams perform better in the first half, or have strategies that centre around having a strong start. As such, they stand a decent shot at preventing even much stronger teams from gaining an early lead. Hoping for an early lead that turns into the favourite still winning is a bit too much, as previously discussed, but a half-time draw is still a reasonable expectation sometimes.

Alternatively, you can use the In-Play Betting feature to take advantage of unexpected events. In these cases even the least likely options are possible. Still, the problem here is that you have to make snap decisions with no time to fully gauge the situation.

If you’re still adamant about going for high-risk plays, one way of mitigating the low probabilities is betting on more than one option. For example, if a team has a reputation for strong starts that taper out in the second half, you could go for something like Home Lead – Draw combined with a Home Lead – Away Win.

Where to bet on Half Time/Full Time?

With all the betting sites available to us these days, it’s hard to say which one would be the all-around best. You’ll need to do your research and figure out which online bookmaker best serves your purposes. To help you with your search, we here at BettingFellow have gathered a handy list of the best online betting sites.

Now, HT/FT is an extremely popular betting market, so you don’t really have to worry if a bookie offers it or not – all of them do. You only have to worry about the odds. Luckily, markets within a single sportsbook are not really that different when it comes to odds. If a bookie’s odds are good, that quality extends to all of their markets.

They do tend to vary a bit in terms of sports, however. Thus, if you mean to bet on football, you’ll probably want to go with a football-focused bookie. We recommend thoroughly comparing the competition before settling with one bookmaker or another, and the above-mentioned list will greatly help you with that. Still, if you’re in a hurry, here are a couple of solid options:

Bet365. One of the biggest names in the game, and for good reason. This betting site is considered the golden standard when it comes to online punting. A wise choice for most bettors. Coral. Famed for their unconventional market combinations, Coral has been a part of this industry for more than 90 years. Trustworthy, reliable, and boasts great odds and margins. William Hill. Another member of the old guard, William Hill is a prestigious online bookmaker whose live streaming and in-play betting services are hard to beat.

Half Time/Full Time Betting Tips

In this section, we’ll take a look at some miscellaneous betting tips and strategies that don’t belong in any of the previous sections. Again, we’d like to remind you of the similarities between this betting type and the Half Time and Full Time markets. If you’re still looking for more information, you can refer to their respective articles.

Statistics are the backbone of any smart betting decision. Needless to say, the ones that most interest you here are a team’s win rate and their Half Time result stats. Out of these two, the latter is maybe even more important than the former, seeing how it is often overlooked.

Bets on unlikely options for HT/FT are not the only times backing multiple options is a smart play. Crunch the numbers to figure out if paying for this as a kind of “insurance” is worth your money. Just remember to take into account the bookmaker’s margins.

If you’re still not sure that going for shorter odds is as good as it sounds in the case of HT/FT markets, consider this: teams with a home advantage who lead in the first half, go on to win the match in more than 80% of cases. On the other hand, teams that are losing at the half time mark only manage a comeback in just over 5% of cases.

The exact probability of an outcome happening is very hard to determine for HT/FT, considering all the variables and moving parts. This makes things more difficult for the bettor, but also for the bookie when they’re deciding the odds. This makes this particular type of bet a prime target for identifying value bets if you somehow manage to outsmart the bookmaker.

To that end, consider digging through smaller leagues and lower-profile matches. Some of the best betting offers can be found in places you would least expect them to be.

Half Time/Full Time Betting Verdict

HT/FT betting is not an easy market to get into. There’s a lot of angles to consider, a lot of possible outcomes and a lot of bases to be covered. It requires exceptional knowledge of the sport, and even more statistics and number-crunching. Still, it’s a great market for finding value in bets if you know what this entails.

Between this betting tutorial and the guides for HT/FT’s two constituents, you should at least know all the basics. Getting started with Half Time/Full Time betting is not easy, but remember that experience is the best teacher.
