If you bored to bet on 1X2 and Over/Under markets, there are plenty more options to choose from. Goalscorer bets are one of the best ones.
Sometimes it’s easier to find who has a high chance to score at any game than who will win the match. So we want to analyze how you can find the value in goalscorer bets straightforward. We listed some bullet points for you to check.
1. Follow Set Piece Takers
Set-pieces are taking an important part of total goals of the football, one worth seriously considering. Almost a third of goals scored in football are set-piece goals. Some of them directly from penalties, some of them are direct free-kicks and of course many of them headers after corner kicks or indirect free kicks. What influence should this information hold? If we want to bet on goalscorers we should know the set-piece takers and potential poachers from them. Especially for header goals, we should study the team's strategy. For defensive-minded teams, set-pieces can be a strategy with physical advantages.
2.Form over Fixtures
Some players can just score against anybody when in the right form. In that case, even tougher fixtures can give us more value. You should look closer which players are peaking at the moment. For example, Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) and Krzysztof Piatek (Genoa) can be exciting options for 2018/2019 season. They are playing for average teams but they can score goals against every opponent. They proved it many times in the season.
3. How Many Goals will be Scored?
It’s always hard to find value on goalscorer bets if there will be less goalscoring chances in the match. So you should keep your eye on both of the teams. Especially early goals can turn matches to goal-fest and our bet has more chance to win in that way.
3. Wait for Line-ups
Some teams have more consistent line-ups and others not. If you are not sure will your man make the starting lineup or not, it’s better to wait for the official squads to appear. When the teams have more intensive periods managers can rotate their squads. Checking line-ups are one of the most important parts of finding valuable goalscorer bets. Sometimes managers can use different players in striker position while they are rotating their squad. It can give you a huge value just before the match starts. You should be faster than odds movement. So check the team lineup some hour before the kick-off.
4. Study The Head To Head
Some players have better goalscoring records against specific teams. Actually, maybe it can look like a coincidence but there can be two reasons behind it. First one; the playing styles of the teams. A goalscorer can suit better against a specific opponent. The second reason can be a coincidence, which later created a vicious cycle. A player knows he has a good record against that team so he has more self-confidence when he is on the pitch against them.
