Half-Time / Full-Time Tips and Predictions - Friday 23rd to Monday 26th August
Mansfield Town v Stevenage – Mansfield Town / Mansfield Town
Over the course of their last 20 home games in League Two, Mansfield have enjoyed a half-time lead on seven occasions, going on to convert five of these advantages into victories. This bodes well ahead of a visit from struggling Stevenage, with the visitors losing six of the seven fourth-tier away fixtures in which they have trailed at the break during the same period.
St. Mirren v Rangers – Rangers / Rangers
It is a sign of Rangers’ increasing strength that they have enjoyed a half-time advantage in 11 of their previous 20 top-flight trips, with Steven Gerrard’s men going on to claim all three points in eight of these games. As for St. Mirren, the Paisley-based outfit have been beaten on all six occasions in which they have trailed at the interval in their last 20 home matches.
RB Salzburg v Admira – RB Salzburg / RB Salzburg
RB Salzburg know how to cash in on a winning position in the Austrian Bundesliga, turning all 11 of their half-time leads into full-time victories across their last 20 home matches. This spells bad news for an Admira outfit who have been behind at the interval nine times on their travels during the same period, especially as they have gone on to lose seven of these games.
Barcelona v Real Betis – Barcelona / Barcelona
If their previous 20 top-flight home games are anything to go by, then Barcelona are not a team that you want to be behind to at the break, with the Catalan giants claiming maximum points from all ten of the matches in which they have led at the interval. For their part, Real Betis have lost six of the last seven away fixtures in which they have trailed at half-time.
Half-Time / Full-Time Tips and Predictions - Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August
Arsenal v Burnley – Arsenal / Arsenal
Arsenal have a strong recent home record when it comes to converting half-time leads into full-time victories, with eight wins being garnered from the nine top-flight matches out of the last 20 in which they have led at the break. Worryingly for Burnley, all eight of their previous 20 away games in which they have trailed at the interval have ended with zero points.
Tranmere Rovers v Bolton Wanderers – Tranmere Rovers / Tranmere Rovers
When Bolton have been behind at the break on their travels recently, defeat has been the inevitable outcome, with this being the case eight times in their last 20 league trips. It has been almost the opposite story as far as Tranmere are concerned at home of late, with Micky Mellon’s men converting seven of their previous eight half-time leads into wins.
Porto v Vitoria Setubal – Porto / Porto
Over the course of their last 20 home games in the Portuguese top-flight, Porto have led at half-time on 14 occasions, converting 13 of these advantages into maximum points come the final whistle. As for Vitoria Setubal, they have trailed at the interval eight times in 20 trips at this level recently, only going on to avoid defeat in one of these encounters.
Heracles v PSV Eindhoven – PSV Eindhoven / PSV Eindhoven
Heracles have trailed at half-time in seven of their previous 20 Eredivisie home games, going on to lose every single one of these contests, so they could definitely not be described as the comeback kings. As you might expect, PSV Eindhoven boast a good conversion rate on their top-flight travels, turning eight interval advantages into seven full-time successes recently.
How Does the Half Time Full Time Betting System Work?
Similar to scorecast betting, this market involves placing a stake on the result at half time and at full time.
It’s important to know that you need to win both halves in order for the bet to win. This means you must predict the score at half time and at full time correctly.
It sits in the category of double bets, but both parts of your stake must be correct.
The precondition is that the game must have a break.
Let’s say Arsenal are in the lead at half time with 2-0 against Southampton in a Premier League match. The full time result is then 2-1 to Arsenal.
In order to win, you would need to correctly predict both scores.
If Arsenal were to end the game without scoring or conceding, this is still a half time full time bet. You would just need to predict the score that let them win the game.
Half Time Full Time Odds
Odds vary depending on the bookmaker or betting site you choose, as well as the football match itself. There are a number of different outcomes to a game, including draw draw or home team win at half time and away team win at full time.
HT FT betting can have some very lucrative returns, particularly for games that are difficult to predict.
Understanding this Type of Sports Betting
Half time full time markets are particularly useful in fixtures where one team is the heavy favourite to win.
In a different market, the odds may not be as attractive. However, as you predict the score at both half and full time, the potential returns significantly improve. In fact, these types of bets are admired for their high odds. This gives you the best chance of winning the most possible money for your original stake.
Looking for markets similar to this one?
Win to nil also requires both parts of your prediction to be correct in order for your bet to win. Your selected team must claim victory while also keeping a clean sheet.
Double chance betting allows you to cover two out of three possible outcomes of a particular match. This gives you more chance of predicting correctly and winning.
Both teams to score and win not only allows you to bet on the two teams scoring across the full 90 minutes, but also who you think will be victorious.
