Total corners

What is Total Corner?

Total corners is a betting term most commonly associated with football betting and is a popular market in which the punter places a bet based on how many corners they think will occur in total throughout the game.

A corner kick is a regular occurrence in football and is when a defender player or goalkeeper puts the ball behind their own goal line with out a goal being scored.

The subsequent corner is a method of restarting the game in which the attacking team possess the ball and have a number of options of play. These include playing a long corner kick into the box or a short corner to teammate who is stood close by and is a popular attacking option.

How is Total Corners used in Sports Betting?

Total corners usually come in the form of an over/under corner market.

This is when a bettor may opt for there to be over or under a total of 12 corners in the 90-minute match.

Quite often a bookmaker will run individual team total corner markets in the same ilk of over/under but method of goal scored can often be bet on as from a corner.

Total corners see a lot of action and it is important to note that statistics such as shots taken, possession and goals scored can mean a team is likely to generate corners for themselves. For example, a match between Manchester City and Liverpool is more likely to attract a larger number of corners.
