Although only a small aspect of the art football, putting the ball into the back of the net is the most crucial and you could say sexy aspect of the game. The goalscorers themselves are the headline grabbers.
First goalscorer betting is so attractive to so many types of gamblers because of its simplicity. Punting on a player to bag that first goal is easy to follow and usually the player in question will go off at odds that make it profitable to follow. As with most punting opportunities backing a first goalscorer in a certain match can also increase the excitement for little cost due to the inflated odds available.
Punters have really thrown themselves into the goalscoring betting markets, with the simple aspect of the bet especially pulling in casual bettors, who are football fans but don’t bet to large stakes.
And for those types of gamblers, well established firm, Betfred, run by master bookmaker Fred Done, should be the first port of call for a bet on goalscorer markets because of their fabulous Double Delight/Hattrick Heaven offer.
Fittingly known as the ‘Bonus King’, Betfred have been offering great value for money to their customers for longer than any other bookmakers on the high-street and online.
They have a strong focus on traditional gambling sports such as horse greyhound racing but over the last 10 years have really stepped up their focus on other sports, with football now at the forefront. Betfred may not have the pull or excitement that a company like Paddy Power but for great value for money and brilliant betting opportunities, the well-regarded firm from northern-England are still mixing it with the best around.
Founder of the company Fred Done has kept to the great traditions that a bookmaker like himself used when he was an individual bookie working in the Salford area in the sixties.
Also, as a huge football fan and box holder at Manchester United, he has a soft spot for the everyday football fan and rewards them with a variety of bonuses and money back specials throughout the season. But it’s their fabulous Double Delight/Hattrick Heaven offer that brings in the most publicity and custom.
The offer gives the customer the chance to double or even triple the amount of winning on a single bet within a first goalscorer market. There are no hidden messages or stipulations, it really is as simple as that.
So, if you decide to back Steven Gerrard to score first for Liverpool at 10/1 with Betfred – if he does notch the first goal in the game, not only have you secured a huge profit on your winning bet, you could still be in for more winnings if Gerrard scores again in the same game. This makes the already highly profitable market for customers even more so.
Say the Liverpool maestro bags another goal in the game, taking his tally to two, Betfred will double your odds on the first goalscorer bet to 20/1. If that wasn’t enough and luck is firmly on your side, and Gerrard completes his hat-trick, you will be paid out at three-times the original odds, so in this case 30/1.
Sometimes when a big betting company releases a catchy slogan they usually fail to back the fancy words up with similar actions. But in Betfred’s case their tag as the ‘Bonus King’ is hard to argue with, and the Betfred Double Delight/Hattrick Heaven offer on the goalscorer markets certainly backs that tag up with actions.
