Halftime / fulltime betting

In this article we introduce you to another interesting betting strategy which has become more and more popular throughout the last years. With this online strategy, you bet on the halftime result as well as the fulltime result. How that works and how you can win those bets you can read in the following paragraphs. Enjoy!

How does a half-time/full-time bet work?

A halftime/fulltime bet is a special betting form of the usual half-time bet and belongs to the category double bets. The only difference is that at these bets you bet on BOTH the standing at half-time as well as the result after the full time. This typ of bet is very similar to scorecast/wincast betting.

Important: A halftime/fulltime bet is only won if you predicted the half-time standing AND the full-time result correctly. The only precondition of this bet is that the event has to be interrupted by a break.

halftime fulltime betting concept exampleAs a practical example we chose three bets from the German Bundesliga and decided for three different halftime/fulltime bets.
The first bet is a 2/1 bet where we bet on an Away-Team lead at halftime and a Home-Team win after 90 minutes. The second bet is as easy as it appears. We bet on a halftime Home-Team-Lead and a Home-Team-Win at fulltime a classic 1/1-bet. In the third bet we guessed that the Home-Team leads after 45 minutes but in the end the two teams will draw.

The popularity of this betting form spreads out into almost every sport. As mentioned earlier, as long as the games are separated into (at least) two periods you can bet at a variety of different sports.


With football games leading the way also games of other sports like rugby, American football or basketball have often been used for halftime/fulltime bets. A special form constitutes ice-hockey games, which most knowingly, are separated into three thirds. Nevertheless, a few betting sites offer bets where you can bet on the standings after the first (or second) third in combination with the result after the full game.

Can you make money with halftime/fulltime betting concept?

These bets are most admired for their usual high odds. Bets on a team to lead at halftime but lose at fulltime usually go along with odds between 20 and 30. To play halftime/fulltime bets profitably we suggest specializing on favorite wins.
betting strategy halftime fulltime betting slipAs an example: Look for games in which the favorite (Home-Team) got the odds of about 1.50 to win. Then place two single bets. In the first you bet on 1/1. That means you bet on a Home-Team-Lead after 45 minutes and a Home-Team-Win after 90 minutes. As a second bet place an X/1-bet where the half-time standing can be a Draw but in the end the Home-Team goes away with the win again. In this way you can get the most profit out of these bets.
You will recognize that this strategy is as described the most lucrative. This is because even if you guess every third bet wrong you will still gain money due to the high odds of the halftime/fulltime bets. You can also try halftime/fulltime betting as a system or yankee bet.
