Weekend Football: Markets

by Weekend Football Limited

We take a look at which markets are best priced at a particlaur bookmaker. From Full Time Result (1X2) to BTTS+Result (Both Teams To Score Plus Result).

General Rules

All betting is settled after 90 minutes of play unless you’re betting on plus extra time in cup games. All markets include injury time, but not extra time or penalties. Special circumstances may happen in which a bookmaker decided to pay out outside these general rules, but don’t expect this to happen.

If a match is postponed, the match usually enters a ‘Void’ settlement, which means the game is deleted from your acca. If you have placed it in a single, the stake is usually refunded - remember to check with the bookmakers terms before assuming your stake will be refunded.

Onto the markets Weekend Football have to offer…

Full Time Result (1X2)

The 1X2 market usually defines whether a bookmaker’s odds will be competitive. bet365, BetVictor and Betfred’s odds usually come out on top in this market.

bet365 offer a Euro Soccer Bonus, in which this includes the top domestic leagues in Europe along with the group and knockout stages of the Champions League. So you can now earn a bonus of up to 100% on your returns if you place accumulators on the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga 1 or Champions League.

Place a pre-match accumulator of 3 or more selections combining teams in any of the above competitions, and if successful the relevant bonus will be added to your returns. Terms apply.

Both Teams To Score

Both Teams To Score market is settled by either both teams scoring or not. The Yes or No option usually hovers around evens with most bookmakers. The odds usually jump up and down depending on the likelihood of the outcome. For example, if a team was likely to score and concede, you would usually find odds around 1.7/.8. If unlikely to achieve both, the odds usually are around 2.2/2.3.

Bookmakers with the best odds in this market very from game to game, but Betfair, BetVictor and Coral are usually found to be the best price.


BTTS+Result is the above (Both Teams To Score), with the match result. This market is a lot harder to predict, because there are four variables (both teams scoring, the home, draw, and away). Odds in this market are very high, with a favourite priced at 3/1. If you can predict the surprise with both teams scoring, you’re looking at a price of 7 or 8/1.

The bookies offering the best price in this market vary between bet365 and Coral. Depending on the choices you make, of course.

The bet365 Euro Soccer Bonus is also available on this market. More information here.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals

This market is the combined score of both teams in the game. So, if the score was 1-1, it would be under 2.5 goals. If it was 2-1, it would be over.

Odds in the Under 2.5 goals market are usually found around evens, with Over 2.5 goals usually just below evens. The odds fluctuate depending on the favourite outcome. I.E. If the bookmaker believes there will be Over 2.5 goals, they will be around 1.73 with Under 2.5 Goals in the same game around 2.2 and vice-a-versa.

Bookmakers offering the best price are usually between Coral and BetVictor
