Half time/Full-time Betting Guide
Instead of betting on who you think will win the match, you place a bet on who will be winning at half time and who will be winning at full time. Half Time/Full-Time betting is a super way to boost your odds and is ultimately a match result bet split into two.
Therefore you have to predict two things in order to win the bet.
- The winner at half time (or draw)
- The winner at full time (or draw)
Should you not predict one of these aspects of the bet, your wager fails.
As an example here’s one of the craziest results in the Premier League – Arsenal 4-0 at half time, 4-4 draw at full time.
There are nine different outcomes to this, so naturally has much better odds than a match result bet, where there can be only three possible outcomes. These are:
Let’s say you were betting on Chelsea v Manchester United via the William Hill app.
The match result odds might look a little like this…
Chelsea – 7/10
Draw – 29/10
Manchester United – 19/5
If you fancied backing Chelsea, the odds wouldn’t be particularly great for this, so you may wish to look at the Half Time/Full Time market. This would look a little like this…
Chelsea/Chelsea – 4/1
Chelsea/Draw – 5/1
Chelsea/Manchester United – 11/1
Draw/Chelsea – 10/3
Draw/Draw – 4/1
Draw/Manchester United – 9/1
Manchester United/Chelsea – 17/1
Manchester United/Draw – 10/1
Manchester United/Chelsea – 18/1
You’ll find much better odds with this market on Chelsea winning the match, but you must delve a little deeper in how the game will play out.
So if you think the Blues will get an early goal, it may be worth the 4/1 on them to win both halves. If you think it’ll be a slow burner with Chelsea grabbing a late winner, you may wish to back the Draw/Chelsea.
Either way, you’ll get better odds on a winner than you would simply backing a match result.
