The two competing teams have to score against each other before the half-time whistle is blow by the referee in case the punter placed a bet of a “goal-goal” in the first half. The “goal- no goal” works also if the punter chose that and that the first half of the game ended in a one-sided match or ended in a barren draw.
The market is available in both live betting and just the normal bets. While the odds for normal bets rarely change, those for live betting do change every now and then according to the time of the game. The odds offered in this market are higher compared to the ones for the “Both teams to score in full-time”. This is because of the very limited time given for the teams to score.
The odds do vary with respect to the teams that are facing each other. The teams that are likely to score in the first half will have the odds for the options “Yes” and “No” almost equal and slightly lower. But, for the teams that rarely score goals, the odds for the “Yes” option are very higher than those of the “No” option.
Both teams to score in first half.
Most often or not, the teams playing do end up in a barren draw or a 1 nil at first half. This is the common result witnessed across so many leagues. There are exceptional cases though. That common result is the one which makes the odds offered to the “No” option to go slightly lower than most gamblers expectations.
One more thing for you the punter, ensure that you chose the leagues that you are betting on wisely. Else, you might end up losing many bets than you ever imagined.
