Football Betting Strategy – Correct Score Betting

One of the most popular betting strategies people tackle on the football is betting on the correct score market. This system has recently being turned into a strategy by some by laying the correct score to try and guarantee a profit.

The correct score market is a difficult one to tackle and it is often hard to find any real value in it with bookmakers often under-pricing the low scores in close matches. For example a score of 1-0 in a football match may be as short as 4/1 if the teams are closely matched on paper but it is important you trust your feeling when betting on such a market as there is often value elsewhere, especially if you think goals are going to be in the match.

Close games often result in low scoring affairs and the sensible system would be to bet on a 1-0 or 1-1 correct score but betting on a 1-0 comes  with its own risks from an entertainment point of view in that is the opposition score a goal your bet is a guaranteed loser. If you bet on a 2-1 scoreline your bet still has a chance even if the opposition score first. This system is more from a casual punters point of view who is purely betting to get some extra enjoyment out of the football match.

The correct score market can often be linked to the over/under goals markets and these can be traded off against each other, or bets can be ‘covered’ using both markets. For example if you think there will be under 2.5 goals in the match there are only three outcomes – 1-1, 1-0 or 0-1. Therefore betting on over 2.5 goals would cover this bet and ensure you do not lose. This football betting system works best when you bet on one of the options in play.

The correct score market is a fantastic way of betting for the casual punter, with the bigger scorelines such as 3-2, 4-2, 4-3 etc almost always being available at attractive odds. Betting on these scorelines has undoubted risk, but the rewards make this betting system an enjoyable one for the full 90 minutes of a match.
