Next Goal Scorer is an in-play, or live betting option now offered by every bookmaker mostly associated with soccer in which a bettor predicts who the next scorer of a goal will be during play.
A Next Goal Scorer bet is strictly associated with the next goal in a game and the punter will only be able to select from the players currently on the pitch. That is as opposed to other scoring markets such as first goal scorer, anytime goal scorer or last goal scorer, in which any player in a squad can be selected.
Although mostly associated with football, a next goal scorer bet can be made on any sport that requires goals to be scored such as hockey and handball. It is also known as next team to score bet.

Naturally, the Next Goal Scorer bet refreshes itself every time a goal is scored meaning a bettor can win multiple times if they successfully pick the correct player each time.
