In this article, we will consider the bets: both will score and his mirror will both score – no. In what cases is it better to use one or another option to be in the black at a distance?

What is this

The name of the bet “both teams to score” speaks for itself. If both teams score in a hockey or football match, namely, in these sports, this bet option is the most popular, then the forecast for both teams to score is successful. If one of the opponents does not score, or no one scores, then NG enters.

Note that due to the higher performance in hockey, the coefficient for the exchange of pucks is usually low. But in football, the coefficient on GG / NG ranges from 1.60 to 2.10. Due to the low odds on the bet, both will score in hockey, we suggest that you stop with this betting option for football matches.

Different football leagues have different results. Therefore, before you start making such bets, it is important to conduct at least a superficial analysis of the league.

Designation and types of bets on “both teams to score” at bookmakers

Yes, there are varieties in this market. There are two main ones. This is GG – yes and NG – no. Yes – this is when each of the teams scores at least one goal during the match. More is possible, less is not. Then the bet will fail.

No – this is when the match ended in a draw with a score of 0:0 or one of the teams won and did not concede. 1:0, 0:1, 2:0, 0:2. And even 10:0 – all this will ensure a win.

Many betting companies are constantly expanding their lines and combining the “both to score” market with other outcomes. The most popular format bets are “bet + outcome”, as well as “bet + total”. Let’s take a closer look at some of the options.

You say that the first team will win, but at the same time, both will score, that is, 2:1, 3:1, 5:2 – any such score will lead to success.

Both will score and the first team will not lose. Here the player will be satisfied with any effective draw or victory of the first team, provided that both sides score. 1:1, 2:1, 2:2 and so on.

Here, there must be a victory for one of the teams, there should not be a draw. Well, the classic “both teams will score.” 2:1, 1:2, 3:2, 1:3 and so on.

You bet that both teams will score and there will be at least three goals in the match. That is, 1:1 or 3:0 will not suit you, but 2:2, 2:1, or 1:3 is a victory!

Again, both teams must score, but no more than three goals in total. Here the options are limited to 1:1, 2:1, or 1:2 outcomes. All other results will be lost for this bet.

The most popular sport for both to score bets is football. Odds for the classic market in it fluctuate around 1.70-1.80. You can bet on OZ in hockey, but there the coefficient will be around 1.20 because the average performance is much higher. But here you can try to catch a goal drought of one of the teams, then the coefficient will be much higher.

When is the best time to bet?

This type of bet focuses on goals scored. It is quite logical that they should not be concluded in cases where the maximum that fans can expect from the teams participating in the event is defensive football.

The state of affairs should be analyzed taking into account the statistics of the teams – the number of goals scored by each of them, the number of goals conceded, the results in matches against rivals of similar skill levels, etc.

The strategy of playing on such bets implies the fact that the bettor will choose teams with a clear imbalance in the direction of attack – teams that consistently score goals, but at the same time often concede goals to their net.

Before making GG/NG bets, you need to focus on the following factors:

  • Good performance, confirmed by statistics.
  • A pronounced bias in tactics towards the attack.
  • Motivation in the tournament (if it is absent, then the team will have no desire to score goals – it will only defend its own goal).
  • The presence of good attackers in the composition, their absence of disqualification, and injuries.
  • A thorough check of why the team concedes goals – due to an injury to the defender or is it a standard tactic for them on the field.

Experienced bettors do not advise abusing such bets in matches between top-level teams that can not only attack well but also defend with dignity. You can determine the favorite and outsider of the match at such rates by studying the odds offered by the betting company. You should also operate in the analysis process with the information obtained in the forecasting section. It is very useful to take into account the opinion of professionals on this matter – they tend to analyze data that inexperienced bettors would not even pay attention to.
