The Goals Galore market is a relatively new football accumulator that is sweeping the nation. Instead of trying to pick the correct result on your accumulator, this market allows bettors to simply choose games where they think both teams will score. If they do, then it goes down as a win for the bettor.
As it works in the same way as an accumulator bet, the more games you select the higher the odds and therefore the pay-outs will be. It’s often thought that it’s a much easier market to select games where both teams will score rather than the correct result.
Goals are exciting anyway, but with this market you will be praying for both teams to hit the back of the net.
Who offers Goals Galore?
We have Betfred to thank for coming up with the term ‘Goals Galore’ and the associated betting market, and they have been running this format since early 2009.
However, since the integration of the market many other bookmakers have come up with very similar formats – some identical – just under a different branding. Others, whilst offering the same service, have simply set a market on each match and you can then add them to a coupon as you please.
Chances are you will find this market in one form or another at the betting site you want to use, but if not it’s odds on to be available at the next.
How does Goals Galore work?
To start with you will get a list of around 50 games for the upcoming week. Games are often found over the weekend but can range in terms of kick off times, dates, and even leagues. Some companies add foreign games as well to bolster the coupon, but generally the leagues are UK based or International games if they happen to fall on such a game week.
From that list, you then need to choose a minimum of 3 games in which you think both teams will score (the winner of the match doesn’t matter). The more games you pick the higher the odds will be. The maximum number of games you can pick on any one coupon is 15, and the pay-outs for each section are as follows:
- 3 correct = 7/2
- 4 correct = 6/1
- 5 correct = 12/1
- 6 correct = 20/1
- 7 correct = 33/1
- 8 correct= 55/1
- 9 correct = 80/1
- 10 correct = 150/1
- 11 correct = 250/1
- 12 correct = 350/1
- 13 correct = 600/1
- 14 correct = 1000/1
- 15 correct = 1500/1
The odds are fixed for each accumulator and the betting company will likely pick games that are on a pretty even keel each week.
Goals Galore Strategy & General Tips
The Goals Galore markets can be extremely profitable. Diving into your coupon and just selecting games at random is almost certain to be a losing strategy, so we have come up with a few betting tips that you can follow to hopefully maximise your edge each week.
- Don’t shoot for the stars and try for 15 correct games. To make consistent money you want to be looking at about 4 or 5 games max. It won’t get you rich quick – unless you can already afford to wager big – but it will keep your bankroll steadily ticking over and actually give you a reasonable chance of success.
- Use a stats based website or form guide to look at how each team in the tie perform both home and away. Try and find fixtures where both teams have scored and conceded in their last two home and away games, and make sure there are no 0-0 results in their last 4 outings.
- Look at previous meetings between the teams in question and see if there is a history of goals. Remember, we need both teams to score so always keep this in mind when looking at stats – you want to see goals goals goals.
