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.

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.

Friday 28th January – Valladolid v Sporting Gijon – Home First Goal

Valladolid have been pretty fast finishers in La Liga 2 this season, winning 13 of 24 matches to leave them in 2nd, just a couple of points behind leaders Almeria. But they’ve been even faster starters, taking a 1-0 lead 16 times this season, including in their last 8 consecutive league games. 

Sporting Gijon have had a pretty mixed bag in terms of getting the first goal this season, but they have tended to struggle away from home and against the better sides in the division. The visitors have gone 1-0 behind in 8 of their 11 away league games this season, and in all 3 against the top 3, home and away.

Sunday 30th January – Derby v Birmingham – Home First Goal

Derby are currently 23rd in the Championship, but without their mammoth 21 points deduction they would actually be 14th, tucked in fairly comfortably below Luton. So while a quick glance at the table might paint this as two bad sides playing each other, Derby have actually done well this season, especially at home. 

When it comes to getting off to a good start, few have been better than Derby at home actually – they have taken a 1-0 lead in 10 of 13 league games at Pride Park, while Birmingham have gone 1-0 down in 9 of 14 on the road. Wayne Rooney’s side still need to win a lot more points to overcome all the odds, but they might just do it by getting off to a fast start in this one.

Sunday 30th January – PAOK v Olympiakos – Away First Goal

This is a 1st vs 2nd clash in the Greek Super League, and you might think choosing to bet on such a high profile and tight clash would be a very risky endeavour. But there are actually 9 points between these sides and Olympiakos have been by far the better side this season, including in the early season clash between these two sides where Olympiakos scored first and eventually ran out 2-1 winners. 

Despite generally pulling out a result in the end, PAOK have actually gone 1-0 down in 6 of their last 10 home league games. Coming back against Olympiakos might be a very different story.

Sunday 30th January – Braga v Moreirense – Home First Goal

Braga have taken a 1-0 lead in 5 of their last 6 home league games, and have done the same the last 5 times they have met Moreirense at the Braga Municipal Stadium in the Primeira Liga. The home side have also made excellent starts against all of the weaker sides in the division this campaign, scoring first in 6 of 6 against the bottom 6. Moreirense have gone 1-0 behind in 4 of 5 against the top 4.

What does team to score first betting mean?
