Match specials are the most popular bet types for both beginners and experienced bettors. They are very exciting bets, especially clean sheets betting. Since we are talking about teams not conceding goals, it’s more than clear that this bet type is used for football.

Keeping a Clean Sheet
Protect the Goal

When you want to bet on a favorite, chances are the odds will be very small. What you can do is go for handicap betting or add goals to the favorite in order to increase the odds. Additionally, bettors can go with the clean sheets bet. Even if a team is considered a favorite, chances are they concede at least a goal. Choosing this bet instead of a classic 1X2 bet will surely increase your odds. Keep reading to find out more.

Clean Sheets Betting in Football

Like we mentioned above, this bet type is best used for Football where clean sheets are something that frequently happens. There are other sports that use goals; however, clean sheets are not actually a thing in handball, ice-hockey, rugby etc. To explain how this bet would work in practice here is an example in the Champions League.

Bookmakers are considering Liverpool to be a favorite in the Champions League final, which is quite normal. However, even if Liverpool wins, chances are they will concede a goal. So, instead of putting a risky bet and backing Liverpool for a victory, you could bet that Liverpool doesn’t keep a clean sheet. The odds will be lower but the probability of that outcome happening will be much higher.

How to Place the Bet

Even though it might seem a bit complicated, placing this bet is actually very simple. The first picture to the right will show how the regular bet looks. The second one, on the other hand, will show how you can put a clean sheets bet on just one half. Betting on just one half will increase the odds on conceding the goal. That happens because there is less time to score or concede a goal.
