Both Teams To Score Tips
As simple as it sounds, a Both Teams To Score tip is placed into a two-way betting market where you predict either Yes or No. A bet on whether the two teams in a given match will both score at least one goal or not.
If you bet Yes, you need both teams to score at least one goal to win your bet.
If you bet No, you need at least one team to fail to score to win your bet.
Manager and team psychology can be an important factor in determining whether a game will be approached in an open fashion by both managers. As a general rule, the greater the importance of a football match, the more tight and nervy it will be. That desire not to give anything away or make a mistake leads to more cautious football and a lower amount of goals. Factor this into your decisions when betting BTTS.

What type of teams should I look for in a Both Teams To Score bet?
If betting Yes, you are looking for teams blessed with attacking talent but a shaky defence. Leicester and Arsenal are teams delivering for BTTS punters so far this season.
If betting No, you want stubborn defences and/or teams with a lack of penetration up front. Newcastle under Rafa Benitez are very good at keeping things tight but also are poor in front of goal.
What are the typical odds in BTTS markets?
This is obviously unique for each individual match but it’s fair to say the bookies have the Yes selection as favourite more often than not. There will also be a little more margin added to that side of the market because they know the vast majority of gamblers will back Yes.
Why do most gamblers back Yes in Both Teams To Score?
This comes down to the human psychology of preferring to bet on something occurring and having that feeling of urging and cheering a team on to score. Rather than the different emotion you have when you get nervous whenever the ball goes near either goal. It’s exactly the same type of thing that sees people preferring to bet over Total Goals, rather than under.
After talking to several traders on football desks at major bookmakers, the general concensus was that over 75% of BTTS bets are on the Yes outcome.
Are there any other bets including BTTS?
Yes, there have been introductions over recent years of the BTTS & Team To Win, sometimes written Match Result & BTTS. There is also the less popular BTTS & Over/Under Betting.
