A bet on the second half correct score would be predicting the result of just the second period of play. Although the term can refer to any sporting event that is divided into two parts it is more commonly used with soccer.
Predicting the second half correct score is different to a correct score bet and therefore bettors will have their own strategies to be successful. For help developing your own strategies we put together a soccer betting strategy guide. Whereas first halves – especially in football – can be tight affairs, it is statistically proven that more goals are scored in the second half as the game becomes more open and players become tired.
Second half correct score bets can be extremely lucrative as they attract longer odds. They can also go against the form of an entire game. For example if Team A score 4 goals in the first half with no reply the match as a competition is effectively over. But if Team B score just one goal in the second half – and Team A do not add to their tally – then a 0-1 second half correct score would win, even as Team B lose heavily.
Second half correct score wagers are usually single bets but they can be included as part of an accumulator. A bet on the second half of a game can also keep the interest level high even when the match is basically decided.
In 2011 Newcastle found themselves 4-0 down at half time against Arsenal. Few would have had Newcastle 4-0 as a second half correct score bet but four goals in 19 minutes made this one of the Premier League’s greatest ever comebacks. Joey Barton scored two penalties in second half, while Leon Best also found the net before the late Cheick Tiote scored the equaliser with three minutes to play.
In betting, a 2nd half result is the outcome of a game or event during the second half of play. This typically refers to sports such as soccer, where the first half and second half are two distinct phases of play. When betting on a 2nd half result, you’re placing a wager on what will happen in terms of goals scored, cards issued, etc. during the second 45 minutes of play. Many bookmakers now offer markets specifically for 2nd halves, allowing more opportunities for bettors to make money from their wagers.
To win the second half means to be ahead at the end of the game, when the second half of a match has been completed. This could refer to a sporting event, such as football or basketball, or any other type of competition that allows for two halves. A team may have won first half but lost the overall match if they are not able to maintain their lead and score more points in the second half than their opponent.
