The first goal/last goal market is similar to the goalscorer market, where bettors bet on which team scores the first or last goal, with the only difference being that there is no anytime selection. The anytime goalscorer market gives bettors a better chance of winning by betting on one player to make one goal in the match, but a similar selection isn’t available in the first goal/last goal market because it’s easier for a soccer team to score a goal anytime than a player to score anytime. Nearly everyone will win when they bet on an “anytime goal” selection if a sportsbook offers it.
If bettors have a hard time winning in the goalscorer market, they can place a bet in the relatively easier first goal/last goal market. Singapore Pools’ soccer odds aren’t even that bad, considering it’s a fairly easy market with still a bit of a challenge. Bettors who understand how the two teams will perform but aren’t sure which team will win can simply bet on which team will be the first or last to score a goal. The total number of goals of either the entire match or a team doesn’t matter as long as the bettor knows which team will make the first or last goal of the match.
First goal is when the bettor bets on which one of the two teams will score the first point in a match. If they bet on the correct team, they win. If they bet on the wrong team or if no scores are made in a game, they lose. The first goal selection is easily predictable, and the favourite typically has a significant chance of making the first goal.
Advantage of First Goal
The first goal selection is a very safe betting selection since the favourite has a more significant chance of scoring the first goal than the favourite winning a match. There’s little chance of an upset happening, and bettors can simply bet on the favourite and wait to get their winnings.
Last goal is when the bettor bets on which of the two teams will score the last point in a match. If they bet on the right team, they win. If they bet on the wrong team or if no scores are made, they lose. Unlike first goal, the last goal is less predictable since one match lasts a long time, and if there are two high scoring teams, it’ll be difficult to predict which team will score last.
In the first goal market, the favourite has a high chance of making the first goal. In the last goal, even betting on the underdog can be profitable when the underdog manages to make a lucky goal in the last minutes or fought hard to make at least one goal even if the favourite’s winning margin is already high.
Soccer matches tend to develop differently after one team scores the first goal, making the last goal selection challenging to predict.
Advantage of Last Goal
The last goal selection is not a safe betting selection, but it can be profitable. Many sportsbooks might offer the same first goal and last goal odds for the teams to avoid complication, but it doesn’t really matter for anyone who’ll place a last goal bet on the highest odds. Taking advantage of any high last goal odds can be an excellent way to make money if the bettor gets lucky and the underdog wins.
Many people understand that soccer is a low-scoring sport and that there is always the chance that a match will end goalless. If both teams lack great goalscorers or have a great defence, then bettors might be able to profit from a no goal bet. According to some sportsbooks’ Singapore Pools’ odds for the correct score market, a match with one goal has a bigger chance of happening than a match with no goals.
Betting on “no goal” is similar to betting on “no” on both teams to score market and “0-0” in the correct score market, but they have different odds.
Advantage of No Goal
No goal is tough to predict because both teams have 90 minutes to make a single goal at least and the odds for both teams scoring are lower than no team scoring. The odds themselves are the advantage of the no goal selection as sports bettors can luck out and make a profit when they place a single no goal bet.
Betting on First Goal/Last Goal through Full Time/First Half
Like other betting markets, sports bettors can bet on either full time or the first half of a match to vary their bets. Betting on which team will score last only in the first half of a soccer match is a bit easier than betting on which one will score last full time. Betting on “first half no goal” may also be easier than betting on “full time no goal” because soccer is low-scoring, and there is a chance that both teams won’t be able to score during the first half.
Full time/first half can make things harder or easier for sports bettors when betting on which team will score the first or last goal. Sportsbooks offer different odds for full time and first half, and bettors might be able to take advantage of such odds when they use it for parlays or use them as single bets to supplement their earlier bets.
The first goal/last goal betting market can be difficult to win unless bettors bet on the favourite as the first team to score. Betting on the last goal and no goal are a bit more profitable but are hard to win due to the nature of the sport. Regardless of what bettors bet on, they’ll need to be able to bet through a trusted online casino Malaysia or Singapore.
