Number of goals in a match

LeoVegas Sportsbook

It is one of the many wagers or betting options that fall under the category of “goals” in some top bookies like bet365, William Hill, Unibet and BetVictor.

The number of goals here is not really specific except that the bookies provide a range of goals that might be scored in a game. The punter, however, needs to do a lot of research rather than doing some guesswork. He/she needs to identify the number of goals that might be scored in that game. To do that, he/she needs to check on the past encounters between the two teams, the way the game ended at that time. The current performance or forms of the two teams. The way each of those teams has been scoring goals against their opponents and maybe doing an average of those goals. The players or overall team motivation also counts when the punter wants to predict the number of goals that are to be scored in that match.

The weather of the day might also be something that the punter needs to look at. A sunny day means that the number of goals scored can go high while during the rainy day, the goals to be scored may become fewer because of the slippery field.

The market looks something like the one below when the bookmakers decide to display it to the punters for betting purposes.

Number of goals in a match
Under 2 goals ( 1.77) 2 or 3 goals (1.67) Over 3 goals (2.11)

The odds of all the options given above are dependent on the matches being played. When two big attacking teams clash, it means that very many goals will be scored and so, therefore, the odds for many goals might be reduced a little bit while those representing fewer goals might be increased a bit.
