What Is BTTS Betting?
BTTS betting refers to Both Teams To Score.
This bet originally became popular thanks to Betfred's 'Goals Galore' coupon which was the first time Both Teams To Score Betting was given a really big push by a bookmaker.
Betfred also tended to offer generous odds on both teams to score which meant more and more punters were finding profitable BTTS bets.

Both teams to score betting is exactly how it sounds; if you back both teams to score then nothing else in the match really matters other than both teams getting on the scoresheet.
You don't just have to back both teams to score, you can choose between BTTS - Yes and BTTS - No. In many ways it's a lot like betting on either over 2.5 goals or under 2.5 goals except the considerations are slightly different.
Why Is BTTS Betting So Popular?
One of the main attractions of the both teams to score bet is that your bet always has the chance of winning until the final whistle. A team can be 7-0 up and all you need is a consolation goal, a team can be winning 1-0 and all you need is an equaliser. Most betting markets will see your bets fall fairly early on, or at the very least look extremely unlikely to win. This means the more casual punter who is looking for fun bets and an extra bit of enjoyment, perhaps in the pub watching the scores, could have no interest as early as the first half of matches. Even games that are 0-0 with a few minutes left can end up with both teams to score being a winning bet.
BTTS - Yes is also a bet on positive things to happen. Betting on events to be low scoring can be less fun as you are often hoping certain teams won't score a goal. If you bet on BTTS - Yes on any given game you are always willing goals to go in, unless of course your bet has already won, and it tends to make following your bets a lot more fun.
Another attractive factor that makes BTTS betting so popular is that it can be combined with other markets in accumulators. Many accas that are placed by punters will be a mix of both BTTS bet and 1x2 bets. This means you don't necessarily have to find lots of BTTS bets to have a decent acca - you can find maybe a couple and combine those with other markets to make an acca that could land a big return.
Finally the both teams to score odds play a huge part in making this bet popular. If you are betting on both teams to score - yes, you'll almost certainly be betting at odds not far shy of even money. That means you don't need to find too many selections to make accas that payout at big odds. Compare that to accas full of so called 'bankers' that are only priced up around 1/4 or similar odds.
What Is BTTS & Result?
You can enhance the odds even further on your both teams to score bets by including the result of the match in your BTTS bet. If you include the result in your both teams to score bet there are six possible outcomes:
- Home team & Yes
- Home team & No (exactly the same as home team to win to nil)
- Draw & Yes
- Draw & No (exactly the same as backing 0-0 or no goalscorer)
- Away team & Yes
- Away team & No (exactly the same as away team to win to nil)
Whichever of those six BTTS & result outcomes you choose you'll be betting at pretty good odds which means you can make BTTS & result accumulators with only 2 or 3 selections a lot of the time and still receive good payouts if they are successful.

BTTS Betting Advice
When deciding the best BTTS bets it's very important to weigh up the form of BOTH teams that are playing. Just because one team is scoring and conceding a lot of goals, it doesn't mean they will continue to do so against every team they play. If the opposition tends to be involved in tight games most of the time they could end up cancelling out the high scoring tendencies of the other team.
It's important to consider how each team is going approach a game. Some teams at the lower end of the table can be involved in high scoring matches against the teams around them but when they play the better teams they might play for a point by 'parking the bus'. Form might tell you that BTTS is a good bet but a change of tactics might mean you need to change your bets.
Over 2.5 Goals
If you are betting on both teams to score it's always worth comparing the odds on both teams to score to the odds on over 2.5 goals. They are different bets not necessarily related (if you think a team could win 3-0 or 4-0 over 2.5 goals would be a good bet but BTTS wouldn't be. However the only time over 2.5 goals is a loser and BTTS is a winner is for games that are 1-1. If you fancy BTTS, don't fancy 1-1 and the odds on over 2.5 goals is better than over 2.5 goals is the better bet.
BTTS Yes v BTTS No
BTTS - Yes is a much more popular bet than BTTS - No, probably because punters generally like to bet on positive outcomes. A bet on BTTS - No can be a loser very early on in the match. However BTTS - No shouldn't be completely forgotten about. BTTS - No or BTTS - No & Result can be excellent bets. When simply backing a team to win a match it is always worth asking how likely that winning team is to keep a clean sheet. One of the best reasons for backing a team to win can be not being able to make a case for the opposition scoring a goal and in that scenario the odds of the team winning the match can be boosted by a solid margin simply by making it a BTTS - No & Result bet (or win to nil).
It's not necessarily a bad strategy to mix the bets in a both teams to score accumulator either. Punters can often make the mistake of filling accas with bets that are all on the exact same market but an acca that uses both BTTS - Yes and BTTS - No bets can be just as good.
