Premier League BTTS Tips – 22nd Feb 2020
Odds are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.
Chelsea v Tottenham – 3/4 with bet365
This London derby promises to be something of an entertaining spectacle as Jose Mourinho’s side visit his old stomping ground. Chelsea will be eager to bounce back from their home defeat to Man United last time out, but it won’t be easy.
Spurs have won three games on the bounce and are now just a single point behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League table. The fight for the Champions League places is hotting up and these sides will be going all out for the three points. As such we think backing both teams to score looks a decent option at odds of 3/4.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle United – 7/10 with BetVictor
With Crystal Palace in 14th position in the table and Newcastle just above them in 13th, a victory for either side in this one would go some way towards helping their survival in the Premier League for another year. There is little between the sides and neither has been in decent form of late, but both will see this as a chance to get a win on the board so we anticipate an open game in which both sides go on the front foot. As such BTTS looks a likely outcome to us.
Sheffield United v Brighton – Evens with Coral
Sheffield United continue to confound the pundits in their rather remarkable season in the Premier League. Currently in sixth position and just two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, the Blades will see this as an opportunity to get themselves in the mix for the Champions League places.
Brighton, meanwhile, have been struggling and they are currently just three points about the relegation places. Though we can’t see Brighton getting a result, they will be getting desperate and we fancy they’ll do enough to at least get on the scoresheet. Backing both teams to score looks a decent bet to us at favourable odds of evens.
Southampton v Aston Villa – 4/6 with Betfair
Southampton go into this game as the clear favourites despite three defeats in their last three league games. That’s because Villa haven’t been performing too well themselves of late and find themselves teetering on the edge of the relegation zone. They have amassed just 25 points from their 26 league matches to date, and with Watford and West Ham both on 24 points below them, they really need to get some points on the board if they are to avoid the drop.
Realistically neither side is in fine enough fettle at the moment to take this game by storm and we can see a 1-1 draw or similar, which would be fine for our BTTS bet!
Leicester v Manchester City – 1/2 with Ladbrokes
This match between Leicester and Manchester City will go some way to deciding which of these sides finishes as the runner-up to champions-in-waiting, Liverpool. It should be a highly entertaining match and we envisage plenty of goals, with at least one for each side, which should bring home our BTTS bet with plenty of room to spare.

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!).
