Latest Premier League BTTS Tips – 12th May 2019
- Brighton v Man City – Evens with Betfred
- Leicester v Chelsea – 8/13 with bet365
- Liverpool v Wolves – 21/20 with Betfair
- Southampton v Huddersfield – 17/20 with BetVictor
- Tottenham v Everton – 8/11 with Betfred
Brighton v Man City – Evens with Betfred
Manchester City will be chasing a victory on the final day of the season, but will they struggle against Brighton? The Seagulls have scored in 72% of their matches at home this term. They’ve been pretty prolific against the top sides, having found the net in all but two of their clashes with the top 12 in the league. City haven’t been entirely solid in the league this term, while four of Brighton’s five home clashes with the top six have seen both teams score. That makes BTTS seem like value here.
Leicester v Chelsea – 8/13 with bet365
Chelsea have booked their Champions League place ahead of this one, so expect the Blues to make a few changes. They come into this one three days after a crucial Europa League tie, so changes are likely. However, we expect the Blues to go pushing for a top-three finish. The Foxes have just two clean sheets in their last 12 home matches, while they’ve scored in 83% of their games, so we’re backing both teams to score.
Liverpool v Wolves – 21/20 with Betfair
The big final day clash at Anfield certainly isn’t an easy one for the Reds. They meet a Wolves side who have caused problems on plenty of occasions this term. Liverpool have racked up 53 goals in their last 18 home matches, but they meet a side who have scored in almost all of their clashes with the top six. Wolves have seen both teams score in 61% of their away trips, so we’re backing BTTS in this clash.
Southampton v Huddersfield – 17/20 with BetVictor
Southampton have been an impressive attacking force in recent months, scoring in their last 14 home games. In that time, the Saints have seen both teams score in 13 of those, while their four home games since the start of March have all finished with both sides scoring. Huddersfield scored against Man United last week, while they should find the net here. The Saints have seen BTTS in 78% of their home games, so we’re backing more goals here.
Tottenham v Everton – 8/11 with Betfred
Tottenham don’t need a victory on the final day, but they could see a more entertaining clash here. They have been a little lax at the back in recent game, while all of the top 11 sides in the league have scored here so far. Everton can add to that and we’re backing them to score in their final clash of the season.

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!).
