First Team to Score

LeoVegas Sportsbook

This is one of the special bets that the bookmakers offer to their customers across the world. The wager has its own pros and cons. The pros being the odds associated with it are extremely high especially when the two teams playing have an equal ability to score against each other. The con, on the other hand, is that the probability of getting it right is very low when the teams playing have the same potential of scoring.

The odds vary depending on the matches being played. If one of the teams is an underdog, then the odds awarded to it to score first are higher compared to those of the opponent. The only time that one can find the odds of either of the teams to score first being almost equal is the time two big teams or two small teams are playing.

First team to score table:

Real Madrid CF (12/7) FC Barcelona (12/7)
Chelsea FC (10/6) Manchester United FC (10/7)
FC Bayern Munich (16/15) Sporting Gijon CF (13/1)

The first two matches are big matches and thus cannot be easily predicted to suit this bet. That is probably the reason why the bets are almost equal. The last match involves two teams that have a big difference. One of them is the big favourite (FC Bayern Munich) while the other is an underdog (Sporting Gijon FC). This is why the underdog has good odds probably because it has a very low potential to score.

Did I mention that this wager is common amongst the top bookies in the world? Well, yes it is. Top bookies such as Unibet, Bet365, Coral, BetVictor, ComeOn, 10bet, and William Hill do avail this market to their potential bettors in the world.
