The both teams to score bet (BTTS) has become a popular one with football punters. Trying to predict games in which both sides find the back of the net is a real test of our research and concentration. But, I am minded to say, it has become an ever more popular bet because, it seems to me, fewer games end with one team not scoring.
Perhaps it is because defenders are not as good as they used to be, but I get the impression there are more goals in games these days. That gives us a better opportunity to win on both teams to score single bets and accumulators.
The bookies have noticed the increase in the number of goals and have adjusted their prices accordingly. But there can still be value in that market.
For example, I thought the odds of 3/4 on Bradford City and Wolves to each score in their weekend clash represented value. Likewise the West Yorkshire derby between Huddersfield and Leeds, which the bookies priced at 5/6. The match ended with 5 goals in total.
The La Liga clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid was always likely to see both teams score. I would argue that the odds of 1/2 for them to do so once again represented a value bet, albeit Madrid left it late to score.
And I was praying they did score as that match formed one leg of the 5 match BTTS accumulator that was offered as a FREE TIP on the homepage of this website.
I suggested the bet was placed with BetVictor for two reasons. Firstly, that online bookie usually offers the best single prices on football. Secondly because BetVictor have the offer whereby, should one of the five matches you select not produce a goal from each team, they will give you another ‘free’ bet to the same value as the sum you staked on the five match BTTS acca.
And, when you are gutted that only one team let down your bet by firing blanks, you will be glad of that second chance to bash the bookie.
But no such worries last weekend. Members and non members alike who staked, for example, £10 on that bet were returned £136.35. Another winning football accumulator this season via VG TIPS.
And there was another winning free tip on the site last weekend. Rickie Lambert to score anytime for Southampton paid off at odds of 6/4.
