First Team to Score Tips and Predictions

Our expert tipsters produce daily tips in the first team to score market across all major leagues and competitions including the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League. You could easily put a few of them together to produce a first team to score acca which would last an entire week! Check out the latest predictions below.

Saturday 2nd July – Machida v Vegalta – Machida to score first

Team to score first tips can usually offer an early return and we hope that is the case on Saturday. Vegalta Sendai have failed to open proceedings in their last four matches, whilst Machida Zelvia have netted first in their last five home outings in the J2-League. So, backing the hosts to go ahead in this one seems wise.

Sunday 3rd July – Häcken v Elfsborg – Häcken to score first

Team to score first tips are always a good way to generate early interest and potentially early returns at the same time. This is why Elfsborg’s visit to Häcken has grabbed our attention. Whilst the hosts opening proceedings in their last three Allsvenskan matches, we are backing the same outcome on Sunday.

Tuesday 5th July – Bragantino v Botafogo – Bragantino to score first

When it comes to high quality team to score first tips, we always have you covered. Botafogo have failed to open the scoring in each of their last four Serie A away fixtures, so backing Bragantino to open proceedings at home on Tuesday is our recommendation here.

Team to score first

A first team to score tip or bet is when you predict that one team will score the first goal in a game. If they do, your bet’s a winner. If the opposition score first, or the game finishes 0-0 and so no team scores first, then your bet will lose.

This market works really well for building accumulators, as the individual odds are generally quite low (similar to WDW market) and all it takes to win is one goal in the right net so it produces real excitement watching the green ticks pile up. That does mean you have to pick carefully as one wrong move could see the acca come crashing down, so it’s important to find the best first team to score predictions.

What does team to score first betting mean?

Simply, which team will score first in a game. You simply bet on the team you think will score first during 90 mins. If you are correct you win your bet.

Team To Score First Odds Comparison

Whenever you add a Team to Score First prediction to your KickOff bet slip you are presented with an odds comparison showing the prices offered by leading bookmakers. As you add additional bets to your bet slip these odds change to reflect the folds of your bet. Once your KickOff bet slip is complete you can choose a bookie to wager with.

Build Your First Team To Score Accumulator

Build an accumulator or place a single bet using our statistical predictions of likely outcomes in the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga and Champions League.

All our top Team to Score First predictions for this week’s fixtures are on this page, and you can dig into individual matches to find more. Use our free football tips and build your accumulator or place a bet.

First team to score accas are a great idea, as long as you keep them medium sized. The odds in this market are slightly longer than the BTTS market, and similar to the WDW market.

Team to Score First Stats

As with any football bet, doing your research is crucial, and we provide the best stats around to help you find the right first team to score bet. We have form stats which show how many goals a team has scored and conceded as well as how many times they’ve scored the first goal in their last 20 matches.

That’s not all though, exclusive to KickOff are our first team to score league tables which show how a team has fared in matches against similar opponents to the one they’re about to face. Earlier this season, for example, up until January Tottenham Hotspur had scored first in all 10 of their matches against teams in the bottom half of the league, but had conceded first in 83% of their games against teams in the top 9.
