Both teams to score betting tips - Both teams to score accumulator

There is plenty of football action across the weekend for fans and punters to get their teeth into, with the standout match Manchester United's visit to Chelsea on Saturday.

There is plenty of value to be found across the weekend, and none more so than in the market for both teams to score.

As such, we have picked out a BTTS accumulator across the weekend's action.

BTTS Betting Tips - 27th October

The action continues to come thick and fast in Europe's top divisions as matches are packed in before the Qatar World Cup.

We have picked out three matches to look forward to with a selection from Germany's Bundesliga, Italy's Serie A and the English Premier League.

A £10 stake on these three matches would return £43.66

Tip 1: Leipzig v Bayer Leverkusen

Xabi Alonso is still finding his feet as the new manager of Bayer Leverkusen but matches early in his tenure have not been short of entertainment.

The Bundesliga outfit were knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday night - although they can still qualify for the Europa League with a third-placed finish in Group B - having drawn 2-2 with Atletico Madrid.

That was their third match in a row in which both teams have found the net and Alonso's first five matches in charge in all competitions have featured a total of 21 goals.

That high-scoring trend could well continue when they travel to Leipzig, who are fresh from winning a humdinger with Real Madrid 3-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Red Bulls have seen an average of four goals per game in their matches in October and have plenty of options in the final third in Christopher Nkunku, Andre Silva and a rejuvenated Timo Werner.

Both teams to score = Yes - 4/9

Tip 2: Napoli v Sassuolo

It is hard to keep coming up with superlatives to describe Napoli this season.

The Serie A giants took a huge step towards winning Group A in the Champions League with a 3-0 win over Rangers on Wednesday night and they have averaged four goals per game in Europe's premier club competition.

In the Italian top flight, meanwhile, they have netted 26 goals in 11 matches and can boast an excellent range of options through the middle and out wide in Giacomo Raspadori, Giovanni Simeone, Victor Osimhen, Hirving Lozano, Kvicha Kvaratshkelia and Matteo Politano among others.

But this week's opponents Sassuolo also know where the goal is with the Neroverdi having netted in each of their last six matches and with Napoli likely to be a little leggy due to a relentless October schedule, they could struggle to keep their opponents at bay. Expect goals in Naples.

Both teams to score = Yes - 8/11

Tip 3: Brighton v Chelsea

Graham Potter returns to Brighton as Chelsea manager this Saturday and it could be an entertaining tussle at the Amex.

Potter is yet to lose as Blues boss since taking charge in September and had been praised for making Chelsea tough to break down following a string of clean sheets.

But many of those clean sheets came against sides who have been struggling this season like Wolves and Aston Villa and the London club have been breached in their last two fixtures by Manchester United and Salzburg.

Brighton have not been as free-flowing in the final third under Potter's successor Roberto De Zerbi but in their two matches against top-six outfits, they showed promise, drawing 3-3 away to Liverpool and scoring in a 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Back at the Amex, they can be expected to play on the front foot and both teams to score looks a decent selection when they host Chelsea.

Both teams to score = Yes - 3/4

Why is BTTS Betting popular?

There are dozens of reasons why the BTTS betting market is popular around the world, we've picked out our top three reasons below.

One of the only full-game sustainable bets

Our number one reason could be a little confusing to some, the BTTS market is one of the only betting markets that is guaranteed to still be available in the 90th minute. If a team is winning 9-0 in the 89th minute, it is still possible that the losing team grabs a consolation goal, if so, your bet is won. If the game is 0-0, it is possible that a first goal would cause a catalyst for another to be scored. No matter what happens in a game, the Both Teams to Score betting market is signifcantly more sustainable than the likes of betting on cards, corners and goalscorers.

A more reliable bet for making free bets valid

Sometimes, when trying to receive a sportsbook or casino bonus, such as a free bet, there are minimum requirements that must be met. If we take an accumulator offer for example, you may need minimum odds of over 5/1 for your accumulator to count as a qualifying bet, instead of betting on teams such as Man City, Bayern Munich etc; to try and get that number over the line. It is significantly easier to do the research, find teams that are most likely to score, even take a look at Both Teams to Score tips and place your bets. Most of these odds will be under evens but by the time you had four or more to your betslip, your odds are typically above the required amount and you can typically be confident in these bets if the research backs up your claim. For example, in the Premier League, Manchester United have recently been a mainstay in BTTS tips because their defence is poor but you can rely on players like Cristiano Ronaldo to grab a goal at any point.

Low Odds Bets to Build an Accumulator

When looking at potential bets that include both teams scoring, you'll very rarely find odds of over evens. We've looked at thousands of games for our BTTS tips and the number of times we've seen the odds successfully come off is within single figures. However, as odds are typically between 1/2 and 2/3, if you back four games in an accumulator, you'll receive odds of between 4/1 and 10/1. For an accumulator where each section is viewed as more likely to happen than not, it looks like a fantastic opportunity and this is why many people place BTTS bets.

Best and Worst Leagues for BTTS

BTTS in the Premier League

When it comes to BTTS in the Premier League, it's one of the most average leagues in the world for this value, the vast majority of teams will have approximately a 50/50 rate with betting odds of under evens. This means that if you backed them every game, you'd run a considerable loss on this market. However, you'll often find teams vary in BTTS depending on whether they're playing at home or away. For example, between the start of 2020/21 to the end of 2021/22, Leicester City had BTTS 76% of the time away from home in 38 games but at home, it was merely 50%. Meanwhile, West Ham had similar figures in the opposite order. Typically, in this league, most people avoid most of the big six and Wolves. When newly promoted sides face-off against mid-table teams, BTTS is a lot more frequent.

BTTS Rating: 5/10

BTTS in French Ligue 1

Typically, when you take the likes of Paris Saint Germain out of the occasion, the French Ligue 1 is a very good league for the BTTS market. The stats clearly show who the most defensive teams in the league are and if a team has a weaker defence, BTTS almost looks guaranteed. Offensively, Ligue 1 is one of the most improved leagues in the world with skillful attackers in almost every team, this means unless a team plays a defensive style, you'll commonly find BTTS is probable. Olympique Lyonnais are one of the best teams in France but they prioritize attacking football, meaning they're susceptible at the back, so when they come up against teams like Stade Rennais who are performing out of their skins offensively and are strong defensively, BTTS looks like a sure bet.

BTTS Rating: 6.5/10

BTTS in Bundesliga

Bundesliga features the best and the worst for the Both Teams to Score market as a number of teams have over 75% both home and away while a couple of teams have percentages of around 30-40% which drags the league average down. However, the vast majority of teams are above the 55% mark. With this in mind, you can find the 3-4 teams to avoid and then focus upon a number of teams at the top of the league, it would be expected that Bayern Munich would be a difficult team to back with BTTS but they've been one of the best bets for BTTS across the Bundesliga.

BTTS Rating: 9/10

BTTS in Serie A

Serie A has a reputation for stern defences, which means that if you haven't looked at statistics in recent seasons, you'd believe that the Italian league is one of the worst for BTTS. Which is incidentally, massively incorrect. What we recommend is checking managerial appointments in the league and judging who you're picking for BTTS based on those tips. For example, Jose Mourinho is AS Roma manager, so we'd be backing them to win games by 1 or 2 goals to nil. Similar to teams like Empoli FC and Spezia are teams who may concede in most games but won't score.

BTTS Rating: 7.5/10

BTTS in La Liga

Similar to Serie A, the Spanish La Liga is a competition where the odds for Both Teams to Score bets are skewed by reputation. La Liga holds a reputation for being a fantastic attacking league but when you look at the stats, it has the lowest BTTS success rate across the top five leagues of Europe. Typically, it is easy to judge who these teams are in La Liga as defensive teams, tend to stay defensive for a number of years and rarely chop and change. For example, Getafe have been in the bottom five teams for Both Teams to Score since returning to La Liga in 2017/18 and that isn't a stat we see changing this season. Meanwhile, the likes of Valencia tend to be near the top of the table every year. Although this league has less chances for BTTS to happen, it also is a lot more predictable than the likes of the Premier League.

BTTS Rating: 4.5/10

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.
