The goals galore market is one of the latest crazes in football betting. Ran by powerhouse bookmaker Betfred, the markets works similarly to an accumulator bet but instead of choosing which team you think will win, you simply choose games where both teams will score. Again, similarly to an accumulator bet, the more games you put onto your goals galore coupon, the more the odds will increase.
How it works
Each week Betfred will list a series of games from matches in that upcoming game week. Whilst they generally try to keep it to English football teams, there will be the odd time where they include international fixtures and even games from foreign leagues depending on the availability of matches.
On each list there will be around 50 matches to choose from; selected by Betfred. All you then need to do is select at least three of those matches to put onto your goals galore coupon. Depending on how many matches you select will depend on the odds you receive – the more matches the greater the odds. Whilst the odds may vary slightly from each week, they will always be a set price and will resemble something like the list below.
Remember that in order to win your bet you need a goal from both teams in the match. If just one of your bets fails to match these criteria then your bet will lose. Also bear in mind that the actual result of the game is irrelevant for Goals Galore; both teams to score is all you need.
Variations of Goals Galore
As the betting format continues to grow in popularity bookmakers are finding new ways to incorporate similar concepts into betting markets. A favourite is the ‘Both Teams Not to Score’ market which works the same except you choose games where you think both teams won’t score in the match.
Goals Galore Bonus
Another of the newer markets to come into fruition is the Goals Galore Bonus market. This market will likely include some games where both teams are less likely to score and to combat that the odds are bigger than the traditional Goals Galore market. The concept is exactly the same but the pay-outs and fixed odds are as follows.
Goals Galore Super 6
The Goals Galore Super 6 market will select just 6 games to choose from for their ‘massively boosted’ odds market. The games will vary each week and will generally be 6 games where the chances of both teams scoring will be less than other games; often matches with a large odds on favourite. The pay-outs include:
- 3 correct = 6/1
- 4 correct = 12/1
- 5 correct = 25/1
- 6 correct = 50/1
