The win from behind betting market is increasingly popular due to the great odds when you select the winner. There is also a good variation in the “win or draw from behind” market. It’s a good alternative to the halftime/ full-time market when selecting a reversal in the result. By using a stats-based approach to this market we can look to identify teams who are good at winning points from losing positions.
This is something that teams trend in especially in the Premier League with some teams almost becoming specialists at nicking goals in the lasts 10 minutes. Whilst there is a temptation to just stick teams you think will win but have leaky defences in by analysing the teams we can get more value and make a more considered approach to this market.
