When you want to bet on a certain match result, if one of the teams is a strong favorite, betting on them will have very low odds.

The odds will be much higher with this bet type. Keep reading to find out more.

Match Result and Total Score in Football Betting

This bet type is mostly used in football because betting on a final score plus goals scored works the best. For instance, lets imagine Liverpool are playing against a much weaker side, like Brighton. The odds for a Liverpool victory will be very low and there would be no point in placing that bet. Because of that, the best way is to use match result and total score bets. In this case, you can place a bet that would look like these:

  • Liverpool victory & Over 2.5 Goals
  • Liverpool Victory & Under 3.5 Goals

These are just two of the countless possibilities that can be placed on the match. Additionally, the match result and total score bet can even be placed for a single half, just the first one, or just the second one. You can bet that Liverpool will be winning and they will score over/under a certain number of goals in just one half. However, this bet is much harder to win and that’s why the odds are much higher.

When it comes to other sports, match result and total score is not really a possible pick. That’s why bookmakers only offer it for low scoring sports. Beside football, it can be used in ice hockey, handball, tennis with over/under sets, etc. Nevertheless, this bet finds it’s biggest use in football.

How to Place the Bet

Even though it seems complicated, placing a match result and total score bet is easier than you think. You can find the best in matches were one team is a clear favorite. On the right you will see examples of how this bet would look for a whole match. However, the 2nd photo will show how it looks if you bet one just the first half.
