How does half-time & full-time betting work?

Half time/Full time Betting

A Half Time/Full Time bet can be put in to the category of double betting or an accumulator due to there being more than one outcome needed for it to be classed as a winner. However, the difference is that you have to bet on both Half-Time and Full-Time results in order for it to come in.

If you back Manchester United/Manchester United half-time/full-time then it means you have backed them to be leading the match at both half-time and full-time.

Note:

The bet doesn’t count if the match is abandoned.

The bet doesn’t count after 90 minutes (injury time).

Extra-Time and penalty shoot-outs do not count.

Bets you can have:

Home/Home

Home/Draw

Home/Away

Draw/Home

Draw/Draw

Draw/Away

Away/Home

Away/Draw

Away/Away

This is how these selections would appear on a bookmakers website:

A good example of a Home/Home (Half-Time/Full-Time) winning bet would be if Manchester United were 1-0 up at Old Trafford against Everton at Half-Time and then went on to win the game 3-0 in the second half. Also, if Manchester United were to lead 1-0 at the break and then saw the game out without scoring or conceding in the second half, this would also be a winning Half-Time/Full-Time bet as they have been in-front at both Half-Time and Full-Time in the game. Half-Time/Full-Time betting can be useful for fixtures where one team is a heavy favourite to win and therefore their odds are not very attractive to win the game outright.

In this case, you could then go on to back that team to lead at both Half-Time and at Full-Time and you will notice that the odds significantly improve, giving you a better chance of winning more money from your bet. Alternatively, if a team has a much better second half record but rarely scores in the first half then you can back Draw/Home or Away and you will get even greater odds.
