What is BTTS in betting? (Both Teams To Score)
BTTS is an abbreviation for the term ‘both teams to score’, which is a popular football betting market. As the term suggests, both teams to score is when the home and away teams score, punters can also bet on the games where they do not expect both teams to score as well by selecting ‘no’ when making their selections.
The two main benefits of BTTS betting are that the match result doesn’t matter as long as both teams score and bets can be settled long before the final whistle. For some punters, BTTS can be easier to predict than others such as the match result, over/under 2.5 goals per game and first goalscorer as it is less specific, and your bet is still firmly alive until the final whistle.
What is the Best Way to Bet BTTS?
One of the reasons BTTS tips are so popular is the development of football over the last decade. With pressure from fans and the money coming into football for teams to play a more attractive brand of football and score more goals, defences have become leakier and leakier as time has gone by. Due to the increased likelihood of both teams to score matches, the odds have shortened slightly over the years. We’d recommend placing a BTTS accumulator of 3 or more selections to gain enough value for your bet.
Here are a few things to consider when building your BTTS accumulator:
The number of selections – Although adding more selections/fixtures into your BTTS accumulator increases the value of the bet, each selection increases risk of your bet being unsuccessful.
Betting on the big matches – There’s normally a lot of press coverage around the big matches every weekend, and the news and media outlets will do the most to sell the biggest matches. Try to ignore the ‘hype’ when placing your bets and focus on the statistics.
Read the match previews – Read the match previews and buildup to learn more than just the form for each team or player in your bet. If a team are missing their key defender they might not keep a clean sheet, and if they’re missing their striker they may not score! Doing this research can increase the likelihood of your BTTS bets’ success.
