IT was two out of three on teams to score 2+ again last weekend so I'm trying something different this Saturday.
I've decided to feature a particular coupon for the next couple of weeks and I'm starting with one I bet on regularly – and that's Paddy Power's Goal In Each Half.
For this bet to come up it requires a goal to be scored in the first half and second half by either team. Prices range from 2-5 to 11-10 and just like btts you can choose yes or no with the no prices being much bigger and ranging from 4-6 to 7-4.
Three correct pays yeses pays a minimum 2-1 and three nos will be no smaller than 7-2. English, Scottish and some European games are featured.
I'm going for two yeses and a no and kicking off with the no which is Cardiff v Nottingham Forest. For this to come up I'm assuming we want it to be 0-0 at half-time although it doesn't matter which half is scoreless.
Cardiff have been taking time to break down sides, especially at home, and their midweek clash with Barnsley was 0-0 at the interval.
Forest have become experts in scoring late goals, especially through sub Lewis McGugan, so 0-0 at half-time and 1-1 at full-time would be my call. No to those game pays 1-1.
My first yes is a short one featuring Arsenal v Norwich. The Gunners have hit 10 goals in their last four games, scoring in each half, and you have to fancy them to do so against the Canaries at the Emirates. This pays 1-2.
Complete the treble with Livingston v Hamilton which is a 4-7 chance. These First Division rivals have nothing to play for and are both scoring plenty of goals in a relaxed frame of mind.
Accies hit five against Airdrie in midweek and Livi netted three at Dumbarton last time out.
Let me know what you think of this market or if you have a coupon you'd like me to feature and I'll give it a look.
