In the world of football betting, there is a host of new markets that are designed to make the experience more exciting for all users. While some markets might seem a tad overwhelming to betting novices, the Team Total Goals Bet is one of the most commonly selected.
What Is a Team Total Goals Bet?
While the 1×2 market only allows you to bet on the outcome of a fixture, the Team Total Goals category is simply focused on the minimum amount of strikes you think one team will score.
The options that will be on offer in the Team Total Goals market go up from 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, etc. So, if you backed a team to score over 1.5 goals in their selected fixture, this means that they must record at least two goals for your bet to be cashed a winner.
However, it should be noted that extra-time and penalties are NOT included in the Team Total Goals Bet.
This means that if you backed say in an FA Cup tie, the number of goals you have selected must come in by the final whistle after 90 minutes.
Do Your Research
As any successful bettor will tell you, doing your research is key to giving yourself the best chance. In an era that is so focused on data, apps such as Flashscore can be a great tool.
By checking all the important stats from previous fixtures, you give yourself the best chance of backing a winner. Here is a perfect example of a Team Total Goals Bet that would be worth backing.
After doing your research, history will tell you that since opening 2021, German side Eintracht Frankfurt have scored over 1.5 goals in nine of their 10 Bundesliga fixtures.
So, ahead of their matchup against Stuttgart on March 6th, history tells us that it would be smart to follow that trend if you’re looking to place a Team Total Goals Bet.
Have a Strategy
Along with making sure that you have done your research before having a flutter, it’s always smart to have a betting strategy. For new users, try and stick to the more high-profile domestic leagues or tournaments out there.
By sticking to markets such as the Premier League, you not only have more of a base understanding of the fixtures, but you can also ensure you have expert opinions and up-to-date team news.
Along with placing your bets by using a strategy, also make sure you have a financial plan.
With all good bookmakers offering deposit limits, it’s smart to have a budget of how much you want to play with each week/month.
