Latest BTTS Tips – 24-25 Feb 2018

  • Leicester v Stoke – 4/5 with Betfred
  • Burnley v Southampton – 11/10 with 888Sport
  • Watford v Everton – 3/4 with Ladbrokes
  • Crystal Palace v Tottenham – 10/11 with Betfair
  • Man United v Chelsea – 3/4 with BetVictor

Leicester v Stoke – 4/5 with Betfred

These two played out a 2-2 draw in their last meeting, a scoreline which has landed in three of the pervious five meetings between these two. With the Potters on the up, they’ll be looking for points in this trip to the King Power. However, the hosts have welcomed back Riyad Mahrez, and that has only added to their attacking threat. They’ve been regular scorers at their own ground this term, so we’re backing both teams to score in Saturday’s opening game.

Burnley v Southampton – 11/10 with 888Sport

Will this be a chance for Burnley to end their awful run of 10 matches without a win? The hosts are likely going to need a couple of goals in order to make that happen, given the fact that they are meeting a Saints outfit who have found their shooting boots of late. The visitors have seen both teams score in five of their last six in the league, and with that in mind they should trouble the Clarets this weekend, who have looked a little shaky of late. Having conceded in 82% of their league games, we also struggle to see a Saints clean sheet.

Watford v Everton – 3/4 with Ladbrokes

There’s a bit of edge to this one, following the Marco Silva affair earlier in the campaign. Everton’s push for Silva was rejected, which destabilised Watford, leading them to sack the manager anyway. We should see a goal filled clash when these two meet, as they’ve conceded 95 goals between them this term. Both teams have scored in Watford’s last seven at home, so we’re backing it to land on Saturday evening.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham – 10/11 with Betfair

Tottenham haven’t been enjoying the best of times recently, as fixtures start to pile up on them. Their 2-2 draw with Rochdale last weekend is an issue, and now they’re meeting a Palace side who have scored in their last six matches. Spurs have found the net in their last 15 league games, so we fully expect them to score. However, Palace are strong going forward now, especially at home. They’ve scored in nine of their last 10 league games at Selhurst, so we’re backing BTTS.

Man United v Chelsea – 3/4 with BetVictor

There’s plenty of rivalry between these two clubs and their managers, but will that lead to a fiery game on Sunday? We see this being more open than you might expect, with both sides likely to be a little jaded by their midweek matches. The Blues have seen BTTS land in all of their trips to top eight sides this season, so we’re backing a repeat.

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!).
