It’s fair to say that the Both Teams To Score market is one of the most popular betting markets outside the win-draw-win market.
We all love goals and backing a winner alongside this can really boost your odds compared to a simple Match Result market or Both Teams To Score bet.
But what’s it all about? We take a look at Both Teams To Score & Win and how to play it.
What are Both Teams To Score & Win Bets?
Both teams to score and win market is simply betting on a team to win and both teams scoring in a match.
There are a few different options for this bet –
- Team to win and both teams to score – yes
- Team to win and both teams to score – no (also “win to nil”)
- Draw and both teams to score – yes
- Draw and both teams to score – no (The same as backing a 0-0 draw)
The market for BTTS and draw is usually better covering the correct scores of 1-1 and 2-2 in a dutch bet (You can learn about dutching bets here).
How Do Both Teams To Score & Win Work?
The BTTS & Win market offers much better odds than a simple Match Result market as you’re combining two markets into one and both markets must win in order to win.
Due to the nature of BTTS & Win Betting, the minimum scoreline of the tie must be 2-1, as essentially this is the lowest possible winning score with both teams finding the net.
Here is an example of the coupon from Paddy Power, as you can see you can bet on this market in play too.
BTTS & Win Example:
Let’s say you were using the Paddy Power app to bet on a Premier League game between Chelsea and Everton.
The Match Result market doesn’t have brilliant value odds on Chelsea winning, with them looking a little like this:
Chelsea – 1/ 3
Draw – 4/1
Everton – 7/1
The BTTS & Win market, however, offers odds that give you a much bigger payout, with the odds looking more like this:
Chelsea – 13/8
Draw – 5/1
Everton – 11/1
This is a market well worth taking if you fancy both teams to score. In this instance, you might want to back Chelsea.
In order to win the bet, Chelsea first must win the game. However, to receive the payout both Chelsea and Everton must find the net, meaning the London club must win by at least two goals to one.
Should they win and Everton not score, or they fail to win, your bet will fail. If you wanted to back this it would be the “Win to nil” market.
Why Play Both Teams To Score & Win?
As you can see the BTTS & Win market offers much higher odds than Match Result, which naturally means a bigger profit should you win.
Of course, it’s a harder market to play as you require two outcomes to come through for you to win. We are seeing more goals than ever before in the Premier League though, so it’s a market well worth taking advantage of.
Expected Goals is a tool that can help you identify a game in which both sides will score, as it’s generally pretty accurate and can be a real help in making a profit.
