Inter Miami v Houston Dynamo - 22:00, Saturday 10th October - BTTS Odds @ 8/13
Inter Miami BTTS % - 63% Houston Dynamo BTTS % - 69%
We’re heading across the pond for our first BTTS tip of the weekend, as Inter Miami host Houston Dynamo on Saturday. Inter Miami have had an interesting first season in MLS, starting incredibly poorly. Since then, they’ve signed two world-class players in Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi, and have begun to improve. Whilst they look better going forward, defensively they are still a shambles. That’s why they make the perfect BTTS bet. In 14 games, their games have seen 42 goals so we can expect plenty of action. In this match, however, it’s actually Houston Dynamo that have seen the highest percentage of BTTS matches. In 19 games, they’ve seen 50 goals in their matches with a BTTS percentage of 69%. Considering Houston have one of the leakiest defences in the league, and Inter Miami are starting to become free-scoring, BTTS looks an excellent shout here.
Norway v Romania - 17:00, Sunday 11th October - BTTS Odds @ 22/25
Norway BTTS % - 100% Romania BTTS % - 100%
We’ve got our first International BTTS bets this weekend, starting with Norway v Romania. The two sides face off in Nations League Group B1, which is one of the closest groups of the Nations League so far. Romania top the group on 4 points, but Norway are just 1 point behind back in 3rd. Both sides have scored and conceded in both of their matches so far, with Norway looking particularly dangerous. The main reason this is such a tempting pick for BTTS is Erling Haaland. The teenage sensation is already one of the world’s best strikers, forcing his Norway side to play to his strengths and attack on the front foot. This leads to plenty of goals but also leaves his side vulnerable at the back. So far in the Nations League, Norway have conceded three goals, scoring six, proving just how dangerous they can be across the park. Romania are less high scoring but have also still conceded three goals in their two matches so far. Given how we’ve seen Norway play so far, they should easily score against Romania. But also given their defence, expect Romania to have plenty of chances of their own on Saturday evening.
Slovakia v Scotland - 19:45, Sunday 11th October - BTTS Odds @ 17/20
Slovakia BTTS % - 100% Scotland BTTS % - 100%
We’ll end our BTTS tips with one of the home nations, as Scotland head to Slovakia in the Nations League. It’s another match between two sides with a 100% BTTS record in the Nations League after two games. Although Scotland haven’t been the most high-scoring team, the sloppiness of Slovakia’s defence will give them hope ahead of Sunday. Slovakia have conceded 4 in 2 games, including a 3-1 defeat to the Czech Republic. With starting goalkeeper Martin Dubravka still missing for Slovakia, their defence is going to be missing its last line. So, the BTTS stat will likely rest of how well Scotland can defend. Considering Scotland have only kept two clean sheets in 8, and one of those came against San Marino, we can all but guarantee Slovakia will have chances on Sunday to make this an even contest.
The both teams to score (BBTTS) market is a straightforward market, but there are plenty of different markets that can further increase your odds. Here’s a quick look at some of the other BTTS markets.
BTTS and Win - This market combines the BTTS and the common Win market. If you are expecting a high-scoring game, but also fancy a certain team to win, then this is the market for you. In order for your bet to settle as a win, you will need BTTS, as well as your selected team to win the match.
BTTS in Both Halves - This market is quite self explanatory, but also provides some huge odds. If you’re going to back this market, you’ll need to expect plenty of goals. The score will have to be at least 1-1 at half time, with a final scoreline of at least 2-2. This might sound like a common occurrence, but most goals either come in the first or second half, rather than evenly spread out across the game.
BTTS and Over/Under - BTTS and Over/Under goals are two of the most popular markets in football betting. By combining the two markets, you can boost your odds. If you are expecting a high-scoring match, then this is a useful market. The likelihood is that if there’s over 3.5 or 4.5 goals in a match, then both teams will score, so it’s always worth checking out the odds.
Why You Should Bet On BTTS
BTTS is such a popular market because it’s something that can never really be ruled out. For example, if a team is dominating in a 5-0 win after 80 minutes then the standard win market is all but over. But with BTTS, you can still root for the late consolation, which comes about more than you think. It’s also a market than can come in very quickly. If both teams get off to a flying start, then BTTS could easily pay out within 10 minutes. In the Liverpool v Leeds game for example at the start of the 20/21 season, the score was 1-1 after 12 minutes.
BTTS can also make even the most one sided games exciting. We’ve seen with teams like Tottneham and Arsenal in recent years that although they can dominate sides, they can often be susceptible at the back. In fact those sides averaged BTTS in 63.5% of their combined matches in the 19/20 season. So even if you expect a team to heavily win, a sloppy conceded goal will see BTTS still paying out.
What is the meaning of BTTS in betting?
BTTS stands for ‘Both Teams To Score’. That means if you were to bet ‘BTTS - Yes’, you are betting on both teams involved in that match to score. You can also bet on ‘BTTS - No’, where you will win if just one team, or neither team finds the back of the net.
How do you predict if both teams will score?
The best way to predict if both teams will score is simply to look at both sides’ recent records. Ideally, you want to look for sides that score plenty goals, but also concede plenty. A perfect example of a good BTTS team recently is Chelsea. Last season, both teams scored in 22 of their 38 games, as Chelsea scored 69 and conceded 54. All in all, if you’re going to bet on BTTS, you need to do your research first.
Does BTTS count in extra time?
Unfortunately, BTTS only counts for the first 90 minutes. If you are placing a BTTS bet on a knockout competition like the FA Cup, Champions League or Europa League, then you need to be wary that if the match reaches extra time, any more goals won’t count. So, if a match finishes 1-0 at full time, but 1-1 at the end of extra time, your BTTS bet will still be classed as a loss.
