Grab some first goal scorer insurance with bet365’s Each Way option
The first goal scorer option was one of the first side bets to appear on a football coupon and it’s always been a popular punt. It can be a lucrative one too but it can also be frustrating if your chosen player finds the net during the match, but isn’t the one to open the scoring.
To take advantage of this promotion, just pick your selected player in the normal way but instead of backing him in the outright market, be sure to tick the Each Way option on your virtual slip. If that player goes on to score at any time during the game, you can take a profit based on 1/3 of the published odds.
Standard first goal scorer terms and conditions apply and here are some important things to remember.
- Goals must be scored in 90 minutes of regular play, plus injury time. If this is a match where extra time is played, goals scored in that extra period will not count.
- Certain friendly matches are exempt from the above rule.
- If a match is postponed it will be treated as a non-runner.
We’re getting to the crucial stage of football campaigns in Europe and beyond so this is where goals become even more vital to a team’s progression. Top strikers will really earn their money here and this is a good promotion if you like those scoring markets. For those who aren’t comfortable with the added exposure of a first goal scorer bet, backing a player as an Each Way option could make perfect sense.
