BTTS – Both Teams To Score Tips & Stats

GUIDE

WHAT DOES BTTS MEAN?

BTTS, or Both Teams To Score, is becoming one of the most popular bets in football.

The concept behind the wager is simple. You need to predict if both teams in a football game will find the back of the net.

If you believe Both Teams Will Score, you select “BTTS YES”, If you think neither or just one team will score, you bet “BTTS No”.

The bet has obvious benefits over the “Goal Scorer” and “Outright Win” markets. If you choose BTTS YES, your bet is live for 90 minutes.

It doesn’t matter who scores, how many goals, or who wins in the end.

All you need to worry about is both teams scoring in 90 minutes. You might wonder if your goals count towards the BTTS total – the answer usually is yes. Although individual bookmakers may set their own rules.

If you bet BTTS NO, you’ll want at least one team to draw a blank in front of the goal.
