Understanding "Both Teams to Score or Over 2.5 Goals" Betting Market

The "Both Teams to Score or Over 2.5 Goals" betting market presents two options for bettors: YES or NO.

1. YES:This selection wins when either of the following outcomes occurs during the match:

   a) Both teams score at least one goal each.

   b) The total number of goals scored in the match is more than 2.5 (three or more goals in total).

In other words, if at least one goal is scored by both teams or if the total goals scored in the match exceed 2.5, the bet is considered a winner.

2. NO:This selection wins when neither of the following outcomes happens during the match:

   a) Both teams fail to score any goals (scoreline options: 2-0, 1-0, 0-0, 0-1, 0-2).

   b) The total number of goals scored in the match is 2.5 or less (scoreline options: 0-0, 1-0, 0-1, 2-0, 0-2).

So, in summary:

- If both teams score at least one goal each, the bet is lost for the NO selection.

- If there are more than 2.5 total goals scored in the match, the bet is lost for the NO selection.

- If neither of the above conditions is met, meaning either both teams fail to score or the total goals scored are 2.5 or less, the bet is considered a winner for the NO selection.

You might be wondering why the term "or" is used in the market's title. The reason is that each option (YES or NO) cannot have the same outcome, as it would be redundant. Therefore, the market offers distinct possibilities for each selection:

- For the YES selection, if both teams score, it's considered a win. If there are over 2.5 goals scored, it's also a win.

- For the NO selection, if both teams fail to score or the total goals are 2.5 or less, it's considered a win.

This differentiation allows bettors to choose the option they believe is most likely to occur during the match.
