Newcastle United vs Brentford - 15:00, Saturday 21st November

BTTS Stats: Newcastle United - 82% Brentford - 55%

The Premier League is back, and the focus for our first BTTS betting tip is St James' Park as Newcastle host Brentford. With a new manager in the hot seat, Newcastle will be looking for their first win of the season and the chance to kick start their fight in the relegation battle. But with Brentford having lost their last four, they'll also be looking to bounce back and pick up a needed three points. Although Newcastle have suffered some defeats of late, it's been 1-1 draws that have been on the agenda against Watford, Brighton and Crystal Palace, and even though Brentford suffered a defeat to Burnley, they managed to get on the scoresheet, so we think neither team will keep a clean sheet here.

Bet on BTTS @ 7/10

Dortmund vs Stuttgart - 14:30, Saturday 20th November

BTTS Stats: Dortmund -- 82% Stuttgart - 73%

Our next BTTS tip comes in the Bundesliga as second-placed Dortmund take on Stuttgart. Sitting 15th in the table, Stuttgart are there for the taking, given that in their last game, they lost to Armenia. In terms of BTTS stats, it's Dortmund who ranks the highest in the league and given that they've only kept two clean sheets in the league this season, we think it could be on the cards again here.

Bet on BTTS @ 16/25

Motherwell vs Hearts - 15:00, Saturday 20th November

BTTS Stats: Motherwell - 62% Hearts - 69%

Our final BTTS tip sees us head to the Scottish Premiership as Motherwell take on Hearts. Both teams have enjoyed a strong start to the season, sitting fifth and third in the table, and even though Hearts scored five in their last game with Dundee, they also conceded two. We have to go back to four games to see Motherwell's last victory, but they have managed to pick up draws with St. Mirren, and scored against Rangers even though they suffered a 6-1 defeat.

Why should you place BTTS Bets?

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 that can come in very quickly. If both teams get off to a flying start, then BTTS could easily pay out within 10 minutes. For example, in the Liverpool v Leeds game 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 Manchester United and Leicester City in recent years that, although they can dominate sides, they can often be susceptible at the back. In fact, those sides’ combined matches in the 19/20 season saw both teams score in 61% of them. So even if you expect a team to heavily win, a sloppy conceded goal will see BTTS still paying out.

Why BTTS Accumulators are so popular

When you check out individual games as Both Teams To Score bets, the odds are typically quite small. This has led to many individuals believing that BTTS bets aren’t worth putting on. However, those who have combined their BTTS bets into a four-fold or higher accumulator have found success with the method. Let’s take the opening weekend of the Premier League, for example:

We don’t have any information on teams from the current season but based on last year’s information, we know that St James’ Park was the venue that saw the most games with BTTS. Newcastle host West Ham whose BTTS percentage away from home was 63%, making that game an obvious choice for the BTTS market.

Similarly, we have Manchester United - another BTTS favourite with the highest percentage in the league last season. They host Leeds, who only have a 50% record of BTTS but scored the 4th most goals away from home last season, making this game yet another good contender.

Now, let’s say you combine them with Tottenham Hotspur Vs Manchester City and Chelsea Vs Crystal Palace as two games where both teams don’t score. You don’t have a single bet over evens, but when you have combined them, you have odds of 7/1. Four games where you would be reasonably confident of predicting the outcome at odds of 7/1. In comparison, if you wanted to back Liverpool, Man City, Man United and Chelsea to win, your odds would only be 3/1 with arguably tougher outcomes.

Different Types of BTTS Betting Markets

The both teams to score (BTTS) market is a straightforward one, 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 and fancy a certain team to win, this is the market for you. For your bet to settle as a win, you will need both teams to score, 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 are over 3.5 or 4.5 goals in a match, then both teams will score, so it’s always worth checking out the odds.

BTTS Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the meaning of BTTS in Sports 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.

Q. 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 of goals but also concede plenty. A perfect example of a good BTTS team recently is Manchester United. Last season, both teams scored in 24 of their 38 games, as they scored 73 and conceded 44. All in all, if you’re going to bet on BTTS, you need to do your research first.

Q. Do BTTS bets 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.
