Strategising is a crucial aspect of football or soccer betting, which has evolved from simply placing wagers on the final outcome of the match to newer forms like ‘Double Chance’, ‘Draw No Bet’ and ‘Half-Time/Full-Time’ bets.
As the world of soccer betting has grown more competitive, the punters continue to develop new strategies and the bookmakers new betting systems to add to the fun and excitement of wagering on the outcomes of football matches.
A betting strategy is key for each and every punter to ensure they do not lose money to the bookmakers and continue to win irrespective of the market and the type of bet they place. ‘Double Chance’ and ‘Both Teams To Score’ are two special forms of bets which when employed properly, could pay dividends for the punter.
What is “Double Chance” Betting?
In ‘Double Chance’ betting, a single price is offered on a win or draw, thereby the bookmaker reducing the three outcomes for a football match (a home win, a draw, an away win) into two.
If the backed team wins or draws, the bet wins; if the team loses, so does the bet. With double chance bets there is no possibility for the draw. The win/draw odds will always be shorter than for both the individual win and draw odds, because the chances of either outcome occurring are greater than for each one separately.
A ‘Double Chance’ is a great option for backing the underdogs as two of the three outcomes are covered and poses less risk due to the low odds.
What is “Both Teams To Score” Betting?
Both Teams To Score bet also known as BTTS is one which has become popular in recent years because of its potential in matches where the punter is neutral or neither of the teams are favorites to win.
To win the bet, both teams need to score. So any result from 1-1 up is a winning bet. This is one of the bets where Head-2-Head statistics and the recent form indicator of the team (which SoccerPunter provides to you through our in-depth analytical tools) play a key role as only extensive understanding of the playing teams’ strengths can help determine if both teams will score.
