Beat The Clock – 30 Minute Limit and 20 Minutes to Win It

Betfred are a bookmaker who go out of their way to help keep football betting interesting and to give punters new ways to bet on the beautiful game. From their Goals Galore odds boosts to their ongoing Double Delight, Hat-trick Heaven promotion, there’s always something for football betting fans to get stuck into aside from the conventional football betting markets.

The latest additions to the armoury of Betfred’s football punters are their two Beat The Clock promotions, 30 Minute Limit and 20 Minutes to Win It. Both are football coupons that allow customers to place accumulator bets on matches in which they think a goal will be scored in the first 30 minutes (for the 30 Minute Limit coupon) or the last 20 minutes (for the 20 Minutes to Win It coupon).

With both coupons the odds are fixed based on the number of matches you include in your accumulator, with 9/2 for three selections (which is the minimum number), 8/1 for four selections, 14/1 for five, all the way up to massive odds of 3500/1 for correctly picking 15 matches in which a goal is scored within the parameters given.

These markets are loads of fun so read on as we give a brief outline of the strategies to follow in order to pick some winners for both these coupons.

30 Minute Limit & 20 Minutes to Win It Strategy

As with most football bets there is no foolproof way to guarantee success, but you can give yourself the best chance by doing a spot of research. With so much information available at your fingertips it is not difficult, for instance, to ascertain how often a team has scored or conceded in the first half hour or final 20 minutes of a match. Looking also at average number of goals a team scores and concedes during a full match and what the results have been in recent meetings between the two sides playing can also give you an insight into the type of game that might ensue.

Clearly if a team is on a run of 0-0 bore draws, you might be best avoiding them for either of these coupons, whereas if a side has been scoring freely in the first half, they could be good for inclusion in the 30 Minute Limit coupon.

Other factors should also be taken into account, such as whether key players (both prolific strikers and solid keepers or defenders) are missing through injury or suspension, or whether the sides in question have much to play for – low-scoring games are relatively common between sides at the end of the season who aren’t in a battle for the title or against relegation.

Whatever your strategy, however, you are always going to have to rely on a bit of luck, especially if you’re going for the big 3500/1 bet! But give it a try and it might just be your lucky day.
