A few days ago I found a rather interesting betting statistics related to football matches. I found it in one of the betting forums that I usually read while searching for new betting ideas. It’s about football matches when the visiting team managed to score the first goal in the match within the first five minutes of the game.
Statistics shows in great details all the necessary data about what happens in such matches and I’ll do my best to retell it to you or at least the most important things.
First it is important to clarify that in this betting statistic are covered only the five strongest football leagues in Europe. These are the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga.
According to the betting data for the correct score at the end of the first half presented in this observation we can see a very interesting phenomenon. In each of the leagues most of the matches ends with no more scored goals in the first half. Say it with other words the correct score in most of the matches after the first 45 minutes is 0:1.
Here are the details. The percentages of matches ended with correct result at the half times 0:1 are – Premiership 35.6%, Serie A – 50%, La Liga – 35.4%, League 1- 33 %, Bundesliga – 36.6%.
This compared with the rates offered by the bookmakers like William Hill, bet365 and bet-at-home shows that it can be played with some success. In such cases, the coefficient for an accurate result at the half time 0:1varies depending on the class of both teams, but is very rarely below 3.
This means that it is possible to gain some profit by using this method and if you play it serious, with the necessary discipline and strict money management you can easily achieve good results in your betting.
