In football matches, professional footballers always go for a half time break (15-minute break) when the first 45 minutes of the game is reached. The full time whistle is blown by the referee when the 90th-minute mark of the game is reached and after a few minutes of added time has elapsed. This type of wager is also very difficult to predict despite having higher odds compared to other football wagers that the bookies provide.
The odds tend to increase as the result or the scores of first half slowly drift away from the common “1-0”, “0-0” or “1-1”. Any result other than the usual result, attracts odds that might be higher than 3.00. I better illustrate this in a table by using some few football matches as examples. The examples I will show are those that wins a punter a bet and at the same time those that make them lose the bets.
|Halftime/Full Time Correct score||Half time Correct score||Full time Correct score||Bet result|
|1-0/ 1-1||Man United FC 1- Chelsea FC 0||Man United 1- Chelsea FC 1||Win|
|0-0/1-0||Real Madrid FC 0 – Liverpool FC 0||Real Madrid 0 – Liverpool FC 2||Loose|
|2-1/3-1||The Spurs FC 1- Monaco FC 1||The Spurs FC 3- Monaco FC 1||Win|
|2-0/3-2||Perth Glory FC 2- Melbourne City FC 0||Perth Glory FC 3- Melbourne City FC 2||Win|
|1-1/3-3||Arsenal FC 1- Manchester City FC 1||Arsenal FC 3- Manchester City FC 3||Win|
There are much more options to choose from but I think the ones I have indicated here are enough for our case.
It is in order for the gamblers to know that the full-time score in this wager is obtained by combing the results of both halves of the game unlike in the “half time/ full time” wager which treats the results of both halves separately.
