When you're scoping out the football betting options for a big upcoming game it's pretty difficult to ignore the goalscorer markets.
Goalscorers get all the media attention, and perhaps with justification. Without a good goalscorer, it's impossible for a team to snag a win. Most of the biggest footballing icons to ever grace the planet have been incredible goalscorers. Think Pelé, Maradona, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and Messi. The list goes on and on.
The best goalscorers can engineer their own opportunities, as well as capitalise off a well-timed assist. They are versatile, unpredictable and focused - adored by fans and the lucky punters who bet on them smashing one into the back of the net.
But, are those punters actually lucky? Or is there an informed way to bet on a goalscorer?
In this edition of Gamblecast, Richie Delaney and Matthew Glazier explore this question, discussing the intricacies of betting on each type of goalscorer market - anytime, first and last.
What's the difference between anytime, first and last goalscorer? How do I know when to back a first or last goalscorer? Is it worth betting on the goalscorer markets in-play? Listen to the full podcast below for the answers to these questions and much more.
