Correct Scores Multiples – Cyril’s betting advice (part 7)

Betting on Goals


This is usually a minefield. However if you’re prepared to just have a few winners now and again this could be for you. The rewards can, of course, be very acceptable. There are probably many many systems around especially for correct score betting but just as long as you realise that the odds against are quite big, you’ll not be too disappointed when the winners don’t roll off the conveyer belt. On the credit side, the returns can be quite large too.

When looking for suitable matches to use, I find that finding "mean defences" is the thing. Shy away from any game where it looks as if one team are capable of scoring a "hatful" .These tend to be a let-down.

Have a look at the present crop of scores for the league you’re teams are in. The Premiership has about 50% of games that end,  0-1 1-0 1-1 2-0 2-1.The Championship is slightly different in that 0-0 replaces 0-1 in the overall total of 54%. Obviously these figures need checking on a weekly basis to keep them up to date but they’ll rarely vary by more than 1 or 2%. Now if you can find two , or more teams that have good defensive records these scores should be of some use. Another good thing to look at is the H2H scores of opposing teams. A lot can be learned, here.

The odds for these scores will of course vary match to match. Rarely will the lowest price be below 6/1. The highest could easily be around 16/1 or so. If you were to use these scores for doubles you’d need to stake for 25 bets. Your lowest winning return 48/1 always with the possibilty of a much bigger reward.

A popular way to play the correct score game is via Odds and Evens.
Check out any team whose last four or so games have ended with a goals total of an even number. 0-0 counts as even.
Your scores for the coming  game would be those that added up to a odd number. 0-1 1-0 2-1 1-2. 3-0 0-3 etc. Where the goals total was an odd number you’d use  0-0 1-1 2-0 0-2 3-1 1-3 etc.

Of course some punters prefer to stick to singles. I’ll look at these next time.
