Shots on Target Betting Tips

The new football season is here and one of the most popular markets in the past 12 months has been shots on target. The amount of people betting on this type of bet has grown rapidly and for this season, we are launching our shot on target tips for each match, and a cross match accumulator each day too.

We’re going to be using Paddy Power for all of these tips as it ensures you get the same odds as us, and that the market is available for every top fixture.

What is shots on target betting?

With bookies like Paddy Power, you can bet on a player to have a certain amount of shots on target. For example, in an England match you might bet on Harry Kane to have 2 or more shots on target. A shot is classed as on target if it forces the goalkeeper into a save. Things like direct free kicks and penalties count, but with free kicks, the goalkeeper has to save it. It cannot be blocked.

On Paddy Power, you can bet on players to have 1+ (one or more) shots on target, all the way up to 4+ (four or more shots on target).

You can do a similar thing on William Hill as well, betting on a player to have over 1, over 2 or over 3 shots on target in the match. These can also be combined for a shot on target accumulator bet in either the same match, or different matches.

 

What does SOT mean?

SOT is just a shortened version of shots on target. Different bookies might call the market slightly different things but they all mean the same – you are betting on a player to have a certain number of shots on target in any given match.

 

Rules for Shots on Target Bets

  • Shots that hit the post and crossbar DO NOT count as a shot on target as the ball wasn’t going into the net (unless it hits the woodwork then goes into the goal, which would count).
  • Shots that are blocked by a defender are also not counted unless the player is the last man e.g. a goalline clearance.
  • OPTA define shots on target as “a clear attempt to score that would have gone into the net but for being saved by the goalkeeper or is stopped by a player who is the last-man with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal (last line block)”
  • If a shot is blocked by somebody’s teammate, this will not be counted as a shot on target either.
  • Penalties do count, as long as the shot isn’t going wide.

 

Stats for Shots on Target

We will use stats for our shots on target tips and there are a lot of good websites out there who offer shots on target stats. For international matches such as Euro 2020 and World Cup 2022 qualifying, there is less data available so some bookies will not offer odds for shots on target bets, or sometimes they will offer odds but with less statistical evidence, therefore you might find a bet that is a bigger price than you think it should be.
