Some good predictions related to half-time bets involve situations when you recognize outsiders as teams that can hold the game to a draw until half-time, when there are matches where teams are close and when there are some teams with great defence.
To win a half-time bet, predict the result at the end of 45 minutes period.
To do that, you have the sense of how a match may play out and the tempo of both competing teams.
If it is some kind of decisive match and the better team has to score over 3 goals to play in the other round because of the bad first game, and their opponents are not good in defence at that moment, you can expect them to play bravely, strongly and spend a lot of time in front of the net of the opponent team in the first period.
If it is some kind of decisive game and teams were close in the previous match, you can expect them to be careful, guard your goal and wait for opportunities and well-crafted actions. There may be some teams that are known for worse match starts, so you can’t expect them to score goals and perform well in the first period.
There are teams who are known for being very offensive in the first half. They score one or more goals, and then they close the match. So, everything depends on form, tempo, mutual relations, motivation, the character of the game and so on.
Deciding on the results of the first half, research on the team’s and league’s statistics.
Some teams and leagues are known for a higher percentage of draws in the first half, others are known for a higher percentage of home time winning results in the first half, while the rest are known for a higher percentage of a home team losing results of the first 45 minutes.
Half-time betting is just one of the betting methods that shows how important it is to be updated, informed and rely on statistics.
