  • Colombia v Japan – 23/20 with Coral
  • Poland v Senegal – 9/10 with 888Sport
  • Russia v Egypt – 6/5 with Betfair

  • France v Peru – 19/20 with Ladbrokes
  • Argentina v Croatia – 39/40 with 888Sport
  • Nigeria v Iceland – Evens with Bet365

Russia meet an Egypt side who must win their next clash, so we can see that game opening up. Portugal meet Morocco fresh from a 3-3 thriller, so expect goals there. The same goes for a shaky France side, while both Argentina and Croatia are blessed with a lot of attacking talent. Finally, Nigeria and Iceland both had defensive issues in their openers, so goals look likely.

BTTS Betting Explained

Both teams to score (BTTS) betting has become extremely popular with football punters for a number of reasons. Here are the main ones:

  1. Easy to understand – People love simplicity and the concept of both teams scoring in a game or one or both of the teams not scoring is one all punters can understand (if not, they really shouldn’t be betting at all… please gamble responsibly!)
  2. Simple choice – Following on from the above, the fact that there are just two choices (see below) means it’s a quick and easy bet to place in comparison to something like correct score or the first goalscorer markets
  3. Decent odds – Often the odds for BTTS (or both teams NOT to score) hover around, or just under, the evens mark, making them appealing to punters, especially in one-sided contests in which you wouldn’t back the outsider but the favourite’s odds are just too short

Can I bet against BTTS?

Almost all bookies now offer the Both Teams to Score market as a Yes or No option, offering odds for each.

This means that you are able to bet that both teams will score in a given match, or instead that both teams will not (that is one or both teams fail to score in the game).

What if an own goal is scored?

Own goals just count as normal goals – as they do in a match situation. So two sides draw 1-1, for instance, and both goals were own goals, the both teams to score bet would have won (and a bet against both teams to score would have lost).

What about extra time and penalties?

Unless specified otherwise, it is invariably the case that BTTS markets refer to the standard 90 minutes/normal time of a given football match. As such if a cup game ends 0-0 and then both sides score in extra time, the BTTS bet will have lose (though the BTNTS bet will have won!).
