How Do I Pick a Good Both Teams to Score Bet?
When studying form, instead of looking at who has the best win record you must look at the goals for and against statistics. The best teams to look at when betting on Both Teams to Score are the ones who score a lot of goals but have leaky defences, especially if they are playing similarly attack-minded opposition.
For example, in the England Championship game during the 2016/17 season, Norwich City scored 85 goals and conceded 69 from their 46 league games. They also had a Both Teams to Score percentage of 63%. Fulham scored 85, conceded 57, and had a BTS percentage of 65%.
So, when they played each other, there was an extremely high chance of both scoring. It proved to be a banker when they met, with the first meeting ending 2-2 and the second being a 3-1 Fulham win.
When looking for value in this market, it’s a good idea to look at top teams playing away against lesser opposition who are capable of scoring goals at home. Last season, Tottenham only had a 47% overall BTS percentage for the season, but it was 58% in away games.
Hull City had failed to score in 42% of their games overall, but their BTS percentage at home was 63%. When they met at Hull on the final day of the season, many bookmakers gave good odds on both scoring, and it was a bet which turned out to be great value when Tottenham won 7-1.
What matches are better not to bet on?
In addition to meetings with obvious favourites (especially if they play at home), when the odds on the triumph of one of the teams fall to 1.1-1.3, it is not recommended betting on matches of giants like Chelsea-Manchester United, Real Madrid-Barcelona, Milan-Roma.
Of course, it makes no sense to play with Juventus vs Chievo games, because Veronese are unlikely to create any moments at the gates of Juventus. Unless the leader decides to release the second composition ahead of important matches in the Champions League or when there is already no tournament motivation.
It is not recommended taking football matches from Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Slovenia and Portugal due to the low average performance of the championships.
