For punters, this is not just one type of bet that would win them money, but could also lose them a lot of money because of how risky it could be. For soccer fans, there’s nothing more joyous than seeing your team literally rising from the ashes like a phoenix and winning a game especially if you’ve been outclassed and outplayed by the opposition.
To win from behind means that in this type of bet, your team could be losing by a particular margin at some point in the game and must come back to win the game. It also does not matter when the goal is scored – either the first or second half. What’s more important is whether your team can do the unthinkable and come from behind to win the game.
For avid football fans, let me cast your mind back to one memorable night in Istanbul, Turkey where Liverpool did the unthinkable and literally came from the dead to defeat the almighty AC Milan. They came from three goals down in the first half and were three games up by the second half; eventually winning the game when it went to penalties.
The beautiful thing about coming from behind and winning is that the bookmakers have all sorts of odds for punters who might be willing to take the chance on such bet just to make a lot of profit. This is usually done when a small team is playing a big team; especially where it is unthinkable for a small team to come from behind and win a big team. For example, a game between Colchester FC v Real Madrid where Colchester is losing by 3 goals to nil, the bookmaker can have odds such as 1000/1 for Colchester to come from behind and win.
