Half time full time predictions overview
Though being a little more tricky than simple outcome bets on games, half time full time betting tips let you make a more grained prediction both on the outcome of the first half of a match and on the result of the whole fixture. Free HT FT tips offer nine options to place a bet on, which are all possible combinations of half time and match outcomes.

HT FT betting tips explained
All HTFT tips are merely picks for the outcome of a first half and a complete match in one bet. A football match is a perfect example as it consists of two halves, 45 minutes each. So the outcome by half time and the full time outcome both are what you bet on here.
Below you will find all the nine possibilities for HTFT predictions.
Home win/Home win (1/1) — the home team leads at half time and wins the match. Example of 1/1: you stake on the home team to win at half time and in the full time in the Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If Chelsea are ahead by half time and eventually win, you win.
Home win/Draw (1/X) — the home team leads at half time, but the match ends in a draw. Example of 1/X: you stake on the home team to win at half time and to draw the full time in the Chelsea vs Liverpool fixture. If Chelsea win the first half and draw the match, you win.
Home win/Away win (1/2) — the home team leads at half time, but loses the match. Example of 1/2: you stake on the home team to win at half time and lose the full time in the Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If Chelsea lead at half time and then lose, you win.
Draw/Home win (X/1) — the match ends as a draw at half time, and the home team wins. Example of X/1: you stake on the first half to end in a draw and the home team to get a full time victory in the Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If this game is level after the first 45 minutes, but afterwards Chelsea win the whole deal, then you will win HT FT tips of this kind.
Draw/Draw (X/X) — the match ends as a draw both at half time and in full time. Example of X/X: you stake on the game to end in a draw at half time and in the full time of the Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If the first 45 minutes end in any draw (say, 0-0), and then the teams draw the whole match as well (say, with a 0-0 or a 1-1 scoreline), then you win your bet.
Draw/Away win (X/2) — the match is a draw at half time, and the outcome is the away win. Example of X/2: you stake on a draw at half time and on the away team to win the 90 minutes in the Chelsea vs Liverpool fixture. If the teams are square by half time, but afterwards Liverpool take the lead and win the match, then you win such betting tips HT FT.
Away win/Home win (2/1) — the away team leads at half time, but the home team wins. Example of 2/1: you stake on the away squad to lead at half time, and the home side to win in the Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If Liverpool are the best team after the first 45 minutes according to the score, but then Chelsea pull off a comeback — you win HT/FT predictions.
Away win/Draw (2/X) — the away team leads at half time, and the match ends in a draw. Example of 2/X: you stake on the away side to win at half time and then draw the Chelsea vs Liverpool game. You need Liverpool to get ahead by half time, but lose the lead and draw.
Away win/Away win (2/2) — the away team leads at half time and wins the match. Example of 2/2: you stake on the away side to have a total upper hand by score in the first half and in the whole match of Chelsea vs Liverpool. To win, you need Liverpool to lead at half time and also to be ahead by the final whistle of the match.
Note: the scoreline in the extra time is not eligible for the HT FT betting market. Only the goals scored during the 90 minutes plus the time added to each half of a match are used.
