US Soccer Tips Today
When olbg tipsters are adding their soccer tips, in addition to the Full Time Result selections you will also see 'Both Teams To Score' (BTTS) predictions, Total Goals picks, Half Time/Full Time bets and forecasts for many other popular soccer betting markets. Here's a description of how some of those bets work:
Total Goals is a type of spread bet, the popular 'Total Goals' line used for MLS picks on OLBG is 2.5 Goals so you can either bet there will be 'Over 2.5 Goals' or 'Under 2.5 Goals' scored in total in the game.
A '3rd goal' scored in a game is the decisive goal for wagers on Total Goals picks, Over 2.5 Goals being successful and Under 2.5 Goals resulting in a loss. Total Goals bets includes both teams goal totals combined, there are alternative Goal Line markets usually available for 'Team Goals'.
Total Goals is a popular game market for bettors as you are not reliant on a team winning and your wager could still be live right up to the final whistle. It is worth adding, bookies in general will offer alternative Goal Lines which can be 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 etc if you are looking to wager on alternative Goal Lines.
Both Teams To Score (BTTS): is a two way option 'Yes' or 'No' wager where you are predicting 'Yes' if you think both teams will score at least one goal in the game or 'No' if you feel there will be no goals scored or only one team scoring. Again similar to the Total Goals market, you are not reliant on a team winning the game.
With teams of equal ability you will find the bookies will price up BTTS (Y/N) odds usually around the 'Even Money' (50% chance) line, they will also factor in the teams goals for and against stats and how potent an offensive strike force may square up against a good or bad defence.
Half Time/Full Time: is predicting the match outcome at 'Half Time' and the match outcome at 'Full Time' so there are three possible outcomes at Half Time, three possible outcomes at Full Time meaning nine possible permutations which are:
- Team A (winning at Half Time) - Team A (winning at Full Time)
- Team A - Draw
- Team A - Team B
- Team B - Team B
- Team B - Draw
- Team B - Team A
- Draw - Draw
- Draw - Team A
- Draw - Team B
