When do Squawka Release their Both Teams to Score Tips?

We aim to publish our Both Teams to Score 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 the weather, injury news, closeness between fixtures, or even a manager being sacked.

But you can be sure that every BTTS 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 a Both Team to Score Bet?

For many, the standard bet on a football match might be the win-draw-win, betting on a team to win or the game to end in a draw. But Both Teams to Score is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s such a simple market to understand.

Both Teams to Score does what it says on the tin; you’re quite literally betting on whether both teams in a match will score (usually within 90 minutes for games that have the possibility of going to extra-time and penalties). The market is split into two options: Yes, or No. So you can either bet on both teams to score, or both teams to not score (whether that’s no team scoring or just one, it doesn’t matter as long as both teams don’t).

Is ‘BTTS’ Different from Both Teams to Score?

When on your preferred betting site you might see Both Teams To Score abbreviated to BTTS, but however your bookie chooses to display it, the bet remains the same.

What is a Both Teams to Score and Win bet?

Building on the BTTS market, if you really fancy your pick then you could bet on the BTTS and Win bet. This will often be seen as a way to enhance the odds on a standard Win bet that may not bring too much profit on its own.

For example, betting on a heavy favourite for a game may be 1/7 on its own but if they are susceptible to conceding, or you think there may be rotation (the third round of the FA Cup is a great time for this) then odds of the favourite to win and BTTS to score might increase to 11/5. And like the standard BTTS market you can bet on a team to win and BTTS: No – essentially backing your team to win while keeping a clean sheet, similar to the Win To Nil market.

As mentioned, this is a popular type of bet as it can enhance the odds in a game that may appear to be done before it’s even started. Again, we’re looking at the early rounds of the FA Cup if the draw is lopsided.

What are the Benefits of BTTS Betting?

The best thing about Both Teams to Score bets is that, if you have backed Yes, you’re never really out of the running until the final whistle at the end of the 90 minutes. So Manchester City could be beating Bournemouth 4-0 in the Premier League with five minutes to go and let their guards down for a second to concede a consolation, bringing in the Both Teams to Score.

The final score isn’t crucial to your bet and neither is the winner, who scores the goals, or when they go in. All you’re looking for is the score to be at least 1-1. Any scoreline where both teams find the net will see your wager paid out as a winner, from 1-1 to 7-2 and all other combinations you can think of – providing, of course, that both teams score.

But again, there is the option to back BTTS: No, meaning you’ll need at least one of the two sides to keep a clean sheet.

How can I pick good BTTS bets?

BTTS is a fairly simple bet to research. One of the easiest ways to decide your pick is to look at a team’s goalscoring form – they might have lost their past five matches, but how many of those did they score in? Do they love a score draw? Or are they on an excellent winning run but just can’t keep the opponent out?

But it’s also worth considering the head-to-head form. A team might be in good goalscoring form overall, but what if they haven’t netted in their past five matches against their next opponent? It’s up to you which you value higher, but it’s something that should be taken in mind before making your decision.

It’s the same when looking at a team who cannot stop scoring against one that is keeping clean sheets for fun – keep an eye out for little things like this when making your picks.

BTTS Accumulators

BTTS score bets on their own don’t often have large odds, usually odds-on with 10/11 at best, so backing this market as a single isn’t that attractive. However, it works well in an accumulator or multiple bet and provides 90 minutes of action.

This is the most popular way to bet on the BTTS market. Add four or more picks to your bet slip and back the acca. All the selections must come through for your bet to be settled as a winner so if one team lets you down, the entire bet goes down.

However, the more BTTS selections you add to your acca the higher your payout becomes – with potential winnings worth shooting for even off small stakes. BTTS Accas are best enjoyed on days or weekends with a lot of games, whether you want to put your picks on a group of games happening at the same time, or across a couple of days.

Bet365

Bet365 are one of the world’s most popular betting sportsbooks and with good reason. They’re particularly popular for accumulator bets (to build with BTTS) as their easy to use sportsbook allows you to bring up the coupon you’re after in just a few clicks.

Betfred

Betfred is a name punters and sports fans from across the UK know and trust, and they offer BTTS and Match Result markets – meaning you can get the BTTS and Win odds as well as odds on a score draw (or goalless if you’re not too optimistic about a match).

Paddy Power

Paddy Power are a significant player in the online gambling industry and it’s not just because of their social media. They’re particularly good in offering in-play BTTS markets, allowing you to get involved after a game has started – making your pick depending on the way you feel the match is going.

William Hill

William Hill are one of the more trusted names within football betting, making them a comfortable option for many BTTS punters. There is ease in making your BTTS picks for an accumulator too, as you can view the BTTS odds on the overall match page without having to go into each individual match.

Sky Bet

One of the biggest names in the sports betting industry, Sky Bet are understandably a great option for BTTS bets. They offer a variety of BTTS bets, including the ability to combine with Over/Under for another option.

How to Place a Both Teams to Score Bet

It’s quick and easy to place a BTTS bet with any respected sportsbook using their website or mobile app. The leading bookies even offer a BTTS coupon that allows you to quickly select ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ from this market, add your stage, and confirm.

If there’s no sign of a BTTS coupon, you can follow the steps below to quickly and accurately make a bet.

  1. Login to your betting account
  2. Click the Football tab
  3. Select the league or competition you wish to bet on
  4. Pick the fixture and click to expand all markets
  5. Touch the odds of the bet you’re after, such as BTTS Yes
  6. Visit your bet slip to add a stake and confirm
  7. Your wager will be live, and a cash-out value added

Can BTTS bets be placed in-play?

If you are betting with one of the leading bookmakers mentioned on this page, then you can bet on the BTTS market in-play. You’ll find all in-play football matches listed under the live section on your sportsbook website or betting app with a link to open all available markets.

There you’ll find the BTTS option. The odds will reduce after each goal or grow as time passes without either team finding the net.

Are BTTS Bets Worth it?

Both Teams to Score is one of the most popular and best-loved football betting markets around today, and that success is no surprise. It’s a bet that is often easier to land than the winner market. On its own, a BTTS bet will keep you glued to the live TV action or invested in a game throughout the 90 minutes as you hope both teams find the net at least once or that one of the teams draws a blank, depending on your pick.

The market is particularly popular in accumulators, as you only need a few selections to rack up decent odds for a multiple as opposed to lower odds on a BTTS bet as a single.

However, one thing to note is that BTTS doesn’t apply to extra-time or penalties. This is a strictly 90 minutes market that covers you from kick-off to the final whistle – while extra-time isn’t included in this bet, added-on time is.

BTTS  ranks as one of the most popular betting markets in football, but it’s not the only one worth a look at. Leading sportsbooks run over 100 pre-match and in-play betting markets on football, including the following options that are big favourites with bettors.
