The reason why most bettors are moving into this market is that it comes with high odds. Correct score betting market requires you to predict the final scores in terms of how the score sheet will look within the stipulated 90 minutes of the game.

Despite the high odds of market type, you should beware that correct score betting comes with high risks. Here are some of the strategies to consider if you want to include this market in your wedge.

Consider the Playing Style of Both Teams 

Before anything else, you have to consider the playing styles of both teams. If you are looking at two teams that both play defensive football are almost of the same class, you should expect a low scoring game; in such a case, your correct score options include 1:1, 2:1, 0:0 or 1:0.

Tottenham's Jose Mourinho and Atletico Madrid's Andres Simeone have a reputation for playing defensive football; therefore, you should expect a low scoring game if the two teams are playing. 

Type of Game

What's the nature of the game? If you are looking at a high-stake game like a cup final, knock out or any other game, you should expect a low scoring game. In such a case, the possible correct score options to look at include 1:0, 2:1, 1:1 or even a goalless draw. However, if both teams have nothing to lose and are of the same class, the possible correct scores to look at include 1:1, 0:0, 2:2, 3:3.

Defensive and Attacking Forms 

Correct score betting requires you to predict exactly how the score sheet will look like, and so the defensive and attacking form of both teams is an important factor to consider. If you are looking at a hard to crack team like Atletico Madrid, the possible correct scores to look at include 1:0, 2:0 and 2:1, depending on the team you are playing. 
 
A team like Borussia Dortmund is known to score and concede too many goals; the possible score sheets include 2:2, 4:2 and 3:2, while Bayern Munich is synonymous with goal scores like 3:1 3:0 and 4:1.
 

Do Not Combine the Correct Score Market with Other Markets 

Imagine a situation where you correctly predict the correct score only for an ordinary market with an odd of 1.3 or even 1.5 to destroy your bet. Therefore, when you choose to go for the correct score market, a single bet is advisable.
