When do Squawka release their Anytime Goalscorer Tips?

We aim to publish our Anytime Goalscorer tips between 48 and 24 hours before kick-off and, in most cases, that is possible. However, many things can affect a football match and some of these might delay our team releasing the tips. This could be weather, injury news, closeness between fixtures, or even a manager being sacked.

But you can be sure that every Anytime Goalscorer tip posted on this page has been thoroughly researched and checked, and is only published when we are completely happy with them. This is because we aim to ensure the advice you receive is reliable and improves your chances of landing a profit from your bet. We’ll never rush a selection.

What is an Anytime Goalscorer Bet?

Anytime Goalscorer bets are actually one of the easiest to understand in football betting. It does what it says on the tin, it really is as simple as picking a specific player to score during the chosen 90-minute match.

One thing that does need remembering though is that if you are choosing this particular bet in a tournament game, the bookmaker will only play out if your chosen player scores within the 90 minutes of the game. If the match goes to extra-time, then it’s likely the specific bookmaker will not pay out if your chosen player scores. So it is worth checking the terms and conditions, and keeping an eye out for any specific extra-time markets.

It is also worth noting that with a lot of bookmakers, if your chosen goalscorer doesn’t play, your bet will be voided and your stake returned.

What is a To Score and Win bet?

Some bookmakers allow you to pair your ‘Anytime Goalscorer’ bet with other wagers. For instance, one of the more popular variables is picking a goalscorer and their team to win the game. This can often be found as ‘To Score and Win’ on the bookmaker’s website.

These particular combinations work best when a player is backed to score, perhaps an elite striker playing against minnows, increasing the odds by adding in the extra requirement of their team winning. But, of course, both sides of the bet need to happen for you to win. So if your player scores but their team doesn’t win, you lose – and the same goes for if the team wins but your goalscorer fires a blank.

What are the Benefits of Anytime Goalscorer Betting?

The best thing about Anytime Goalscorer bets is that, as long as your player is on the pitch, you have a chance of winning. Their team could be 5-0 up or 5-0 down but, as the old saying goes, it only takes a second to score a goal. Of course, they need to be in possession of the ball and in position to score, but the chance is never truly up until the full-time whistle has blown or they have been subbed off.

The final score isn’t crucial to your bet and neither is the winner, if you’ve just backed Anytime Goalscorer on its own.

How can I pick good Anytime Goalscorer bets?

Anytime Goalscorer is a fairly simple bet to research as there are so many different stats for you to look at to make up your mind. Attacking players will typically have the shortest odds as they score the majority of a team’s goals over the course of a season, but you can get some big odds on midfielders and defenders if you fancy an outside bet.

Let’s take a look at some of the things you might want to consider when making your Anytime Goalscorer bets.

Who is the top scorer?

This is as basic as it comes. Check who is on top of the goalscoring charts as they are, naturally, the ones that have been racking up the goals. Of course, there are some players who may have scored most of their goals in a single match, so look at how their goals are spread – also paying attention to form.

But don’t just restrict your research to league scorers, it’s also worth looking at who comes out on top per team and considering whether the opposition have a particular leaky defence at that time.

Who takes penalties?

Not everyone gets an equal amount of penalties across a campaign and there are definitely some who get them a lot more than others. There are also teams that concede a lot more penalties than others.

While somebody like Chelsea midfielder Cole Palmer may not be expected to score many goals from open play, he has a fine record from the penalty spot (despite a few high profile misses) and could be worth a punt in a Blues fixture in the Premier League, particularly against a team that concedes more penalties than most.

Head-to-head patterns

Some players have teams they just love to face. Harry Kane, for example, scored 20 goals in 19 games against Leicester City including 18 in 15 in the Premier League.

Or you could have two teams that aren’t the best in front of goal, perhaps they’ve produced a few bore draws in recent meetings, so you’ll want to avoid those for your goalscorer tips.

What are the opposition’s weaknesses?

This one requires a bit more research but it can be just as fruitful, looking at which players certain teams might not want to face, and who is most likely to score against their defence.

For example, if a team struggles to defend set pieces, then it might be worth looking at any high-scoring defenders known to cause problems from corners. Or if they’re lacking pace at full-back, perhaps a speedy winger that can exploit this and get in behind. It’s always worth considering the individual match ups.

Anytime Goalscorer Accumulators

Some Anytime Goalscorer bets on their own don’t have large odds, especially when you’re looking at the big names expected to find the net. But if you fancy increasing the odds, or just making the weekend more interesting, you could combine multiple Anytime Goalscorer bets as an accumulator.

By picking a number of players across different games to score at any time you could see your odds increase dramatically – even if you’re picking Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah. Of course, the more selections you pick the higher the risk of it falling through as all selections must win for the bet to be settled as a winner.

If one of your selections does not play, that part of the bet will be void – but a lot of bookmakers will keep the rest of the accumulator running without the odds of the void bet.
