Premier League BTTS Tips – 1st Feb 2020
Odds are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.
Leicester v Chelsea – 4/7 with bet365
Third placed Leicester host fourth placed Chelsea on Saturday with the home side looking to extend the eight-point gap they currently hold over the Blues. The Foxes will be harbouring an outside chance of picking up the piece if Liverpool somehow screw things up. But they certainly have their eye on the runners-up spot come the end of the season.
This one could go either way, but we think the home side will edge it, albeit after a closely fought battle. Backing both teams to score looks a decent option to us.
Liverpool v Southampton – 10/11 with BetVictor
It looks as though there will be no stopping Liverpool’s march to the title this term. That is not to say, however, that teams won’t give them a decent fight along the way. The Saints have performed well in recent weeks after a slow start to the campaign and they are well capable of getting a goal at Anfield (although it will probably turn out to be a consolation only). At odds of almost evens for BTTS, it looks a bet worth placing for this one.
Newcastle v Norwich – 8/11 with Coral
Things are starting to get desperate for Norwich given they are rock bottom of the table on just 17 points from their 24 games to date this term. They still have a chance of clawing themselves to safety, but this is the kind of game they will have to win if they are to grab that chance.
Newcastle are far from safe themselves of course, and they are unlikely to roll over in this one with the fans expecting the three points. If what could be a highly entertaining game, we think both teams to score looks a solid bet at this price.
Watford v Everton – 4/5 with Betfair
Watford are another struggling side who need to get points on the board in the very near future. Everton are a tougher nut to crack now than they were a few months ago though, and we could see the away side nicking the three points in this one. We also think the home side will do enough to at least get on the scoresheet, and BTTS is the bet for us.
Man United v Wolves – 9/10 with Ladbrokes
Man United’s erratic form means anything could happen in this match. Wolves have not been quite as effective recently as they have been in the past, and trying to predict the outcome of this match is not easy. What we do predict however is plenty of goals. Both sides will see the game as a chance to get another three points on the board and we think BTTS is certainly on the cards.

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:
- 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!)
- 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
- 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!).
