First Goalscorer Accumulator Predictions & Betting Tips


What is First Goalscorer betting?


First goalscorer bets are popular with many football punters. The bet is straightforward, just select the player you think will bang in the first goal and if he scores first you win the bet. Strikers usually have the lowest odds and defenders the highest, with attacking midfielders often offering the best value. 

If the first goal is an own goal, that goal is disregarded and the first goalscorer starts from the next goal scored by a player for his own team. For example, if Tottenham are playing Everton and Tottenham take a 1-0 lead through an Everton own goal, the market is still open. If you backed Harry Kane to be the first goalscorer he subsequently scores to make it 2-0, your bet is be a winner (check bookmaker T&Cs). 

If the players selected as first goalscorer does not play or is subbed on after the first goal has been scored, the bet is void and will be refunded. If the selected player comes onto the pitch without a goal being scored and another player scores first, the bet will be settled as a loser.

If the selected first goalscorer starts the match but is substituted off or sent off before the first goal has been scored, the bet will be settled as a loser. If the game ends goalless you automatically lose your stake. Many bookmakers offer money back specials on first goalscorer wagers so it's worth checking out current offers before placing a bet.

In Cup games where extra time is possible, first goalscorer bets are void after regular time, meaning your player must score within the normal game time (90 minutes plus injury time), extra time does not count (check bookmaker T&Cs).

How do we pick First Goalscorer tips?


There are different techniques to picking first goalscorer bets. The easiest of which is sticking with strikers and players in form. For an example let’s look at Tottenham’s Harry Kane. 

In eight games in the 2017/18 season from September 9 to October 22, the Spurs striker was the first goalscorer five times in nine games. Between December 23 and January 25, Kane scored first in six of the 12 games he started, not bad when the odds for first goalscorer is often more than 7/2. 

He finished the season as the first goalscorer in just two of his last eight matches after prematurely returning from injury.

Another way we search for first goalscorer bets is to find a player who usually doesn’t play up front but is in the upcoming match. The odds for this player to score will be relatively high and offer value due to a lack of playing time.

Central defensive players offer larger odds which can provide your bankroll with a big boost if they come in as first goalscorer. Teams that concede a lot of goals and are vulnerable at set pieces can often be good teams to bet against in these instances.

The odds for players like this in the first goalscorer odds are usually around 21/1. Chelsea’s John Terry was an excellent example a goal scoring central defender when he played for the Blues in his prime.
