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.

Haugesund - Odd

With bookies pricing a home win at 2.00, 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.

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

The last round brought a very good result overall for Haugesund. They took a ... read more

Monaco - Nantes

The odds are definitely leaning in the hosts’ favour, but this match is far from a done deal. Judging by odds alone, Nantes may yet be able to walk away with a draw or even a surprise victory – though it’s still a longshot.

This one has Home Win written all over it. The hosts are expected to grab a firm hold of the proceedings and Nantes will be left with slim pickings in this match.

Real Madrid - Osasuna

It’s quite easy to predict that Real Madrid will take the 3 points here. Though a different result is not entirely impossible, it would still be quite a notable upset.

Osasuna stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 10.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

Los Blancos will be bursting with confidence following their last round’s triumph. Fighting away and as the underdogs, they pul... read more

Kalmar - Helsingborg

The home team is the obvious choice for anyone looking to bet on favourites. The match is not completely one-sided, though, which is why you may actually get worthwhile returns.

Helsingborg stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 6.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

The tie result Kalmar recorded in the previous round is nothing to write home about, but at least they managed to aver... read more

Zenit - Rostov

Zenit are likely on their way to a decisive victory, and it’s hard to feel optimistic about the visitors’ prospects. Bookmakers are pricing a home win at 1.26, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for Rostov, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 8.40.

Atalanta - Fiorentina

Though Atalanta are more likely to win this, an away win would only be slightly surprising. It’s a relatively balanced matchup, which usually means we’ll see some exciting football.

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

It’s hard to believe even the most optimistic Ümraniyespor fans are expecting them to triumph at Konyaspor this Sunday. It’s a completely one-sided matchup, and the hosts should have no problems steamrolling their opponents.

Stoke City - Watford

Though the match can honestly go either way, Stoke City will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 2.70 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

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

Excelsior - FC Utrecht

Excelsior managing to pull off a victory here would be quite the upset. They are definitely underdogs, so even the home-field advantage isn’t able to push the odds lower than 5.00 for a home win.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, FC Utrecht 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 tough nut to crack after all.

NEC - Feyenoord

A mere glance at the betting odds for this match should tell you most you need to know. A home win here is almost an impossible outcome, so it’s not very likely we’ll see solid betting opportunities in the 1X2 market.

We are likely going to see Feyenoord triumph this Sunday, though NEC do have a fighting chance. Maybe the home field advantage will be enough to spur them into a surprise draw or victory, though it’s not a probable outcome.

It’s easy to point out Gent 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.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Cercle Brugge will likely get overrun by their opponents with little hope of winning. Considering how one-sided this matchup is, they may want to cut... read more

Mallorca - Barcelona

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 9.50 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming Barcelona.

A trip to Mallorca can hardly be seen as a big test for Blaugrana. With 1.38 betting odds stacked in their favour, it’s hard seeing past anything other than a compelling away win here.

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.60 bring great value considering the fact that Napoli are indeed firm favourites to defeat Torino.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for Torino, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 6.00.

Blackpool - Norwich City

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Blackpool winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to Norwich City, which is made quite clear with the 4.33 odds offered for a home win result.

If everything goes according to plan and Norwich put their best foot forward we expect to see an away win in this match.

Reading are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Huddersfield Town. The odds of 2.25 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

Huddersfield Town 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.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, The Blues 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 tough nut to crack after all.

SC Cambuur - PSV

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

It’s hard to see this match going any other way than an away win. Priced at 1.28 with most bookies, this match is a fairly one-sided affair, and SC Cambuur will need to give quite the performance if they want to get any points out of it.

Kayserispor - Trabzonspor

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Kayserispor will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Trabzonspor.

With 2.28 odds for an away win, Trabzonspor have a rather clear path to victory. Still, there’s plenty of room for an upset in a match like this, so other options are still worth considering.

Austria Lustenau will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Wolfsberger AC don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 3.40 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

Though Wolfsberger AC are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 2.05 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

With top online bookmakers pricing a home win at odds of 1.19, it’s hard to expect anything other than a decisive Paris Saint Germain victory. It’s a uniquely one-sided match – which rarely translates to a lot of excitement in the pitch.

Considering what they’re up against, Nice can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 19.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

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.
