To Win Both Halves Betting

To Win Both Halves Betting

This bet requires you to select the team that you expect to win in both the first and second half, separately. This means that your selection must score more goals than the opposing team at the end of each half, or 45 minutes of play, including injury time. To win both halves betting differs from both “half-time/full-time betting” and “to score in both halves” markets.

As a punter in this market, you are provided with two betting options:

1WBH, which refers to a home team win in both halves, and

2WBH, which refers to an away team win in both halves.

To Win Both Halves Betting Market Example

To Win Both Halves Betting Market

If you back the home team to win in both halves, then your bet is 1WBH. Your bet wins if the home team scores more goals than the opposing team in the first 45 minutes of play, as well as the second 45 minutes of the match. The same applies for a 2WBH bet, if the away team scores more in both halves of the match.

The odds offered by the online bookmakers in this market depend on the abilities of the two teams. For instance, in a match between Tottenham and Chelsea, the odds for Tottenham to win both halves (1WBH) can be offered at 9/1, and 8/1 for Chelsea (2WBH). In another example of Man Utd vs west Brom, the odds for Man Utd win in both halves (1WBH) can be as low as 9/5, while the odds for West Brom win in both halves (2WBH) can be as high as 75/1.

This is a challenging market where punters can have a tough time placing a winning bet. For example, if you bet on Man Utd (1WBH) in its match against West Brom, and Man Utd leads Westbrom 2-0 in the first half, while the full-time score is 3-1, then you LOSE your bet. The reason being that your selection won the first half of the match by a 2 goal margin, but drew in the second half with a 1-1 score (did not win).

For you to win in this market, your team must lead in terms of the number of goals scored in each half of the match.
