There are lucrative odds to be found in this market! To help you win, here are our tips and predictions. The more informed you are, the more likely you are to make long-term profits.
Half-Time / Full-Time Tips and Predictions - Friday 13th to Monday 16th March
Lechia Gdansk v Arka Gdynia – Lechia Gdansk / Lechia Gdansk
Lechia Gdansk have grown accustomed to leading at half-time on their own patch, doing so in nine out of a possible 20 Ekstraklasa matches, and they have gone on to convert seven of these advantages into victories. Arka Gdynia, meanwhile, have lost all eight of the away games in which they have found themselves trailing at the break during the same period.
Colchester United v Scunthorpe United – Colchester United / Colchester United
Over the course of their last 20 away games in the league, Scunthorpe have found themselves trailing at the break on no fewer than ten occasions, eventually going on to lose eight of these matches. It has been a very different story as far as Colchester are concerned at home, with seven of their most recent nine interval advantages being converted into maximum points.
Galatasaray v Besiktas – Galatasaray / Galatasaray
Galatasaray boast an incredible recent record when it comes to converting half-time leads into full-time successes on home soil in the Süper Lig, doing so 14 times out of 14 across their previous 20 matches. Local rivals Besiktas, on the other hand, have lost six times out of seven when trailing at the interval on their top-flight travels during the same period.
Half-Time / Full-Time Tips and Predictions - Friday 6th to Monday 9th March
Braga v Portimonense – Braga / Braga
Braga have become fairly accustomed to leading at half-time in Primeira Liga home games, with this being the case in nine of their previous 20 matches, seven of which they have gone on to win. Portimonense, on the other hand, have suffered defeat in all seven of the away matches in which they have found themselves trailing at the interval during the same period.
Celtic v St. Mirren – Celtic / Celtic
Somewhat unsurprisingly, Celtic boast a formidable recent record when it comes to converting half-time leads into full-time victories on their own patch, doing so 12 times out of 12 across their last 20 matches. St. Mirren, meanwhile, have found themselves trailing at the break eight times on the road during this period, going on to lose six of these contests.
Kobenhavn v Horsens – Kobenhavn / Kobenhavn
Kobenhavn have found themselves leading at the break in ten of their most recent 20 Superliga home games, with Ståle Solbakken’s charges going on to win all of these encounters. Horsens, by way of contrast, have lost on all five occasions in which they have been trailing at the interval across their most recent 20 away matches at this level.
Half-Time / Full-Time Tips and Predictions - Friday 28th February to Monday 2nd March
Paris Saint-Germain v Dijon – Paris Saint-Germain / Paris Saint-Germain
Over the course of their last 20 Ligue 1 home matches, Paris Saint-Germain have enjoyed an interval advantage on no fewer than 13 occasions, with the French giants going on to secure maximum points from 12 of these games. Although Dijon have only trailed four times at the break on their top-flight travels during the same period, they have lost all of these encounters.
BSC Young Boys v Zurich – BSC Young Boys / BSC Young Boys
Young Boys have won 17 and drawn three of their previous 20 home matches in the Swiss Super League, converting 11 of 12 half-time leads into maximum points along the way. As for Zurich, they have found themselves trailing at the interval eight times in away games during the same period, and seven of these contests have ultimately ended in defeat.
Olympiacos v Panetolikos – Olympiacos / Olympiacos
Olympiacos have grown accustomed to leading at half-time on their own patch, doing so in 12 of their previous 20 top-flight fixtures, and the title-chasing outfit have gone on to turn every single one of these leads into maximum points. Panetolikos, meanwhile, have been beaten nine times out of nine when trailing at the break on the road during the same period.
Benfica v Moreirense – Benfica / Benfica
Moreirense don’t have a great record when trailing at the break on their top-flight travels, losing on five of the last six occasions in which this has been the case. This does not bode well ahead of a trip to Benfica, as the Portuguese giants have converted all 13 of their interval advantages into maximum points over the course of their most recent 20 home games.
Half-Time / Full-Time Tips and Predictions - Friday 21st to Monday 24th February
Viktoria Plzen v Pribram – Viktoria Plzen / Viktoria Plzen
Pribram have found themselves trailing at the break 12 times in their previous 20 top-flight trips, with the rock-bottom outfit going on to lose every single one of these encounters. Viktoria Plzen, meanwhile, have enjoyed an interval advantage in 11 of their most recent 20 home games at this level, going on to convert ten of these leads into maximum points.
Feyenoord v Fortuna Sittard – Feyenoord / Feyenoord
Not only have Fortuna Sittard found themselves trailing at the break in ten of their previous 20 top-flight away matches, but they have also gone on to lose every single one of these encounters. For their part, Feyenoord have held a half-time advantage in 12 of their most recent 20 Eredivisie home games, turning 11 of these leads into full-time victories.
AZ Alkmaar v PEC Zwolle – AZ Alkmaar / AZ Alkmaar
AZ Alkmaar have enjoyed an interval advantage in nine of their previous 20 top-flight home games, with the 2009 Dutch champions turning eight of these half-time leads into wins. As for PEC Zwolle, they have found themselves trailing at the break in ten of their most recent 20 away matches, and not a single point has been secured from any of these losing positions.
Porto v Portimonense – Porto / Porto
Somewhat incredibly, Porto have enjoyed a half-time advantage in 15 of their previous 20 home games at this level, with the Portuguese giants going on to turn every single one of these leads into maximum points. This does not bode well for a Portimonense side that has lost seven times out of seven when trailing at the break on the road during the same period.
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.

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.
