Correct Score Betting: Everything You Need to Know

Are you looking to place a correct score bet? Not quite sure what it is or how it works? We’ve got you covered.

What is Correct Score Betting?

A bet on the correct score is exactly what it sounds like. You’re wagering on what you think the final score will be. These bets are very rare in games of basketball and football, as there are a lot of variables at play, but they are common in soccer and ice hockey markets.

An Example of a Correct Score Bet?

Soccer is one of the most common sports for correct score betting. You will typically see three different columns: Home Team, Tie, and Away Team.

They will often look like this:

  • Home Column: 1-0, 2-0, 2-1
  • Tie Column: 0-0, 1-1, 2-2
  • Away Column: 0-1, 0-2, 1-2

If Team A is playing Team B at Team A’s stadium, Team A is the home team.

The sportsbook always lists the home team first, so this is another way of understanding which score references which team.

NFL is also a common Correct Score League. But they generally work on different margins instead of exact scores.

Is a Correct Score a Good Bet to Make?

If you have a good idea of how the game will go, it’s a great bet to make.

You can usually get high odds for a correct score bet, especially if you’re betting on an unlikely outcome, such as a tie/lose for the overwhelming favorite.

Of course, it’s also a risky bet. If there is just one goal/point either way, your wager will lose.
