The Match Result and Both Teams to Score Bet Explained, If you love watching and placing bets on football games as much as I do, then it is important to know about the available markets that maybe you have not given too much taught. One of the markets that I personally find interesting and would like to share my knowledge on, is the “Win & BTTS” or you might know this market as “Match Result and Both Teams to Score”.
While at the beginning of my journey into sports betting and football betting in particular, I would simply place a bet on markets, such as; “1×2” which could be “Home Team to Win”, “Draw” or “Away Team to Win”, boy how naive I was.
While these bets do offer good odds (at times), I never knew I was missing out on placing bets on markets with really impressive odds, such as the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score” market.
So to prevent many punters from going through my experience (a pretty sour one), I have dropped this post explaining (in the best way I can) what the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score” market is all about with an example for the sake of clarity.
Experience is the best teacher, but learning from the experience of others can save you an enormous amount of frustration, heartache and money. So sit back, relax and enjoy reading!
What is the Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market?
As you login to your betting account on a reputable online betting service provider and you click on say, “Today’s Matches” and you then select a match.
Rather than doing the lazy thing of just placing your bet on any of the most popular markets, such as; “1×2”, “Double Chance”, “Over/Under”, “Goal/No Goal”, “Odd/Even” or “Correct Score” (this one is actually tricky and promises good odds), you can take a chill pill and visit the “Win & BTTS” market.
The popularity of this market amongst punters in recent times, has grown to become one of the most sought after markets.
The main reason for this growth is the “high odds” that this market promises. High odds mean a high potential for punters to earn mouthwatering profits on their respective “Win & BTTS” bets.
What the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score” market simply means is that when you place your bet on this market, you will win when both the home and away teams score a minimum of a goal each, and when either of the home or away team (depending on the team you picked) wins.
If both teams score, but the game ends in a draw, you lose your bet. Likewise, if you selected the home team to win and they actually do win the match, but the away team fails to score, you will lose your bet.
Also, if you select the away team to win and they win, but the home team does not score, you lose your bet as well.
In truth, a bet placed on the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score” market is similar to having an accumulator. With just one bet, the odds of two viable markets is leveraged on. The two markets are the “Match Result Market” and “Both Teams to Score Market”.
Sometimes punters get lucky with football tips from pro football tipsters that give out acca bets and other types of accumulators involving the both teams to score bet.
Match Result and Both Teams to Score Explained with Example
To better explain the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score” market, I would like to illustrate with a practical though fictional example.
Let us assume that there is an English Premier League (EPL) game involving Liverpool versus Man City with the odds on the “Both Teams to Score Market” set at29/28. And the odds for both teams not to score set at 4/5. Note that it is also possible for you to lay your bet by placing it on the possibility that both teams will fail to score if you like. Regardless the odds are relatively even. You then take a closer look at the “Match Result Market” for the Liverpool versus Man City game and check out the odds for this market. Let’s say the odds for the “1×2 Market” is as follows;
a Liverpool home win is set at 23/12 while the odds for a Man City away win is set at10/7, and the odds on a draw is say 7/2.
Let’s then say that the odds for “Match Result and Both Teams to Score” for the Liverpool versus Man City game is 12/3 for a Liverpool home win,12/3 for a Man City away win, and37/8 for a draw game.
If you decide to place your bet on the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market” with your bet on Liverpool, the home team to win, then you will be leveraging on the 23/12 odds on a Liverpool home win rather than 12/3.
As you can see there is a big difference in the odds and a greater earning potential on a winning bet placed on the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market”. However, while this market offers enticing profits, you also stand a higher risk of losing your bet as well.
To further explain the earning potential on betting on the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market”, we can expand the highlighted example by using cash amounts.
Let us assume that I decide to place a £2.00 bet in all on the Liverpool versus Man City game with a £1.00 bet placed on a Liverpool home win under the “1×2 Market” and the other £1.00 placed on the “Both Teams to Score Market”.
Now you decide to place a £2.00 bet as well, only this time your bet is not on individual markets, but entirely on the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market” with a Liverpool home win as your preferred match result.
Below is a breakdown of what we can both come to expect from out respective bets;
Results from My Bet:
- If “Both Teams Score”, I will win £1.00.
- Where both teams fail to score, I will lose £1.00.
- If Liverpool gets a home wins, I will earn £2.00.
- If Liverpool loses at home, I will lose £1.00.
- Where the game ends in a draw, I will lose £1.00.
With Liverpool winning and both teams scoring, I will walk away with a £3.00 win. This profit added to my initial betting sum of £2.00 gives me £5.00 in total.
In a situation where Liverpool achieves a home win, but both teams fail to score (i.e. Man City does not score), my total amount will be £3.00 (i.e. my initial £2.00 plus a £1.00 win).
Also, where Liverpool does not win, but both teams score, I will go home with my initial betting sum of £2.00.
Results from Your Bet:
- Where Liverpool records a home win and also both teams score, you will earn £5.50.
- With any contrary result, you will lose a total of £2.00.
Now you can earn £5.50 in profits when you place a bet on the “Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market” and you come out victorious.
You also receive your initial bet of £2.00 giving you £7.00 in total. Though I can still recover my initial bet of £2.00 if I place individual bets of £1.00 each on the “1×2 Market” and “Both Teams to Score Market” even if I lose out on any one of the bets.
However, I will miss out on the possibility of earning higher returns. On the other hand, you would have taken a higher risk that could see you losing your entire initial bet, but will enjoy greater rewards if you win your “Match Result and Both Teams to Score Market” bet.
You can win big like this punter who won over £70,000 for a £1.60 stake on both teams to score type bets.
