Goalscorer tips overview

Chances of particular players to score a goal in a match as well as the probability of opposing teams to concede a goal are the basis for betting tips on a player to score a goal. The match should not be goalless if a sports bettor wants to win, so complex analysis is key here.

There are three basic forms of goalscorer predictions:

  • Anytime
  • First
  • Last

Football and ice hockey both feature such bets along with some other sports.

Many sports betting sites also offer variations of the said betting market. Experts of Takebet may predict the player to score the exact number of goals, the player to score the exact goal of the match (e.g. the second goal), the first player of a particular team to score a goal alongside combined bets such as anytime goalscorer plus 1x2 or the game correct score.

Our analysts offer single goal score predictions on most occasions, but accumulator picks can be also published from time to time with higher betting odds and others bets attached.

Read on to know more about betting tips on players to score a goal from Takebet!

Goal scorer predictions explained

Goalscorer betting tips are forecasts that a player will score anytime or at some point in a match. It may also extend to outright bets on who will be the highest goalscorer at the end of the competition. Some rules apply to the settlement of the match betting option.

Main rules of the goalscorer betting market:

  • Own goals are not counted. If you wager on a particular player to score in the match and this player scores an own goal, this occurrence will not win you the bet.
  • Goals in extra time and penalty shootout are not counted. If something else is not specifically stated, only goals scored in 90 minutes of the regular time are counted.
  • Bets on absent players are voided. If your player doesn’t feature in the match, then your bet is refunded. However, if the player features, the bet will be either win or lose, except when you bet on the first goal and the player features after it has been scored.

Submarkets under the goal score betting market include anytime goalscorer predictions, the last and the first as the most popular alongside the team first goal scorer.

Anytime goalscorer tips

All seasoned sports bettors are familiar with the anytime goalscorer betting. This is certainly the most popular submarket of all. Experts of Takebet offer anytime goalscorer predictions often.

When one bets on anytime goal scorer, the chosen player must score at any point of the regular time of the match one wagers on. The goal can come in the 1st or the 90th minute, doesn’t matter. The goal can be the first or the last. The player can start the game or be a substitute.

Anytime goalscorer tips are safer than first or last, but their betting odds are always lower.

Example of an anytime goal scorer betting tip: you bet on Mohamed Salah to score a goal anytime during the match of Liverpool against Chelsea. Salah scores a penalty in the 90+4th minute. You win, because Mohamed Salah scored — in additional minutes of the regular time.

Last and first goalscorer predictions and tips

With another two most popular submarkets in goalscorer betting picks on Takebet, you can bet on who will score the first goal in the match or who will score the last goal in the match.

The first goalscorer tips are on the player to open the scoring in the match. In order for you to win, your chosen player must score the exact first goal of the game. If your player comes from the bench when the first goal has already been scored, the bet is voided and your stake is refunded. However, if the scoreline was still 0-0 when he was put into the match, the bet stands.

Example of first goalscorer predictions: you bet on N’Golo Kante to score the first goal of the Chelsea against Manchester United match. Kante comes to the pitch when the score is 0-0 and bags the first goal of the game in the 67th minute. You win, because he opened the score.

The first team goalscorer is the variation of this bet, in which you wager on the player to score the first goal for the particular team. This goal may not be the first in the game, but must be the first coming from the team of your chosen player. Own goals don't meet the requirements.

On the other hand, the last goalscorer bet is on the player to score the last goal of the game. No matter when your player enters the pitch, he must be the author of the closing goal — even if he bags a few of them along the way. If the player doesn’t feature at all, the bet is refunded.

Example of last goalscorer picks: you bet on Lionel Messi to score the last goal of the Paris Saint-Germain vs Monaco fixture. Messi comes at the start and makes the score 2-1 in the 70th minute before being substituted. Then no one else scores, so you win with the final whistle.

Combined bets are another variation of goal scorer picks. These combine a goal score betting tip with another option, usually a match outcome, a correct score or a match goal total.

One example is the “first goalscorer and 1x2” bet. On this occasion, an online bookmaker combines a bet on a player to score the first goal with a bet on a match outcome. Another example is the “anytime goalscorer and correct score” bet, which is on a player to score anytime during the regular time of a game and a final score of a game. Both parts of a bet must win.

Accumulator goal scorer tips for betting

Tips on a player to score a goal are frequent additions to accumulators on Takebet. They pair well with numerous other popular betting markets, such as 1x2, under over goals, handicaps, correct scores, double chance and other options in football and the rest of the sports. However, sometimes Takebet drops accumulators consisting of anytime goalscorer betting tips only.

The odds of such accumulators go as high as 10.00 (+900 American; 9/1 Fractional) on most occasions, and that is higher than usual 1.50 to 3.00 odds we give in single goal scorer tips.

Football tournaments with goal score predictions

Football club leagues, domestic and international cup tournaments as well as competitions of national teams are featured in goalscorer betting picks on Takebet. For tips, experts pick matches of tournaments in Europe and Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania.

  • English Premier League
  • Spanish La Liga Primera Division
  • German Bundesliga
  • Italian Serie A

Being the most prevalent type, the anytime goal scorer tips are featured in the most frequent manner among football betting picks on Takebet, while other bet types are less common.

How experts analyse sports for goalscorer tips

The experts of Takebet make use of the statistical approach to the analysis when it comes to the anytime goalscorer betting tips and other subtypes of the bet. Alongside sports stats, bookie odds are decomposed and current news are taken into account to come up with correct bets.

Below are the steps experts take every time when they analyse for goalscorer picks.

  1. Checking the team news and injury list. First things first, experts check which players are available now. If your chosen player doesn’t come at all, you will be refunded, but if he is injured and plays nevertheless, his weak game will make you lose your bet.
  2. Assessing the form of the player, the attacking capabilities of his team and the defensive capabilities of the opponents. Experts look at the player’s stats in a few previous games and H2H clashes: how many goals he has scored, how many chances and assists he has created, what percentage of goals against all chances he had. We assess the teams too. If the player’s team is bad offensive-wise, or if it is not motivated to score, or if the opponents’ defence is impeccable, then the goals are unlikely.
  3. Analysing the current style of play and important player partnerships. Depending on the match and the current lineup, teams may play in an offensive or a defensive style — and even star players will fall in line. Moreover, there are proven partnerships in football, such as Marcelo and Ronaldo when both played for Real Madrid: when such a set of two players is raging in a match, you know better than to expect a dry game.
  4. Checking out the betting odds. Most times top players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah, Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe get low odds, because they lead the attacking lines and their chances of scoring are very high. The job of our experts is to pick matches in which the opponents are more prone to attacks of the proven leaders or to pick those players that are likely to score when the leaders are weakened, or, for example, the players who often score standard kicks.

Watching actual matches proves invaluable when getting anytime, last and first goalscorer betting tips ready. Rest assured that Takebet spends days following football, ice hockey and more!

Strategies for football anytime goalscorer predictions

One strategy for anytime goalscorer tips is betting on matches with both teams mixing into a high probability of standard kicks. When such a game occurs, one must assess the form of the players on both sides who are known as the go-to options for handling a standard kick.

For example, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are known as free-kick takers. However, it may prove more promising to place bets on less famous players who are equally good at scoring free-kicks such as James Ward-Prowse, the English international midfielder. If it takes to know football deeper to pick the player, that’s who you pick for anytime goalscorer predictions.

Penalties matter: check which players are assigned to these duties. This increases the chances of you winning a bet, because if the player doesn’t score from open play, he can still bag a goal.
