Correct score betting tips overview
Being hard to analyse, sporting scorelines are easy to grasp, even for a betting rookie. What you bet on depends on the sport: in soccer and ice hockey, that would be a score of goals; in tennis, that would be sets and games. The high risk associated with bets of this type is why odds are always higher than for corresponding win-draw-win (1×2) bets.
Betting experts of Takebet South Africa drop full-time picks of this kind for all sporting disciplines. In soccer, we also predict half-time scores.
We offer single tips and accumulator picks. In the latter ones, our daily free correct score tips are mixed with 1×2, over/under totals, handicaps, goalscorers, double chance and draw no bet selections, HT/FT picks, and more.
Read below for more explanation of this intriguing betting market.
Exact score tips explained
Sports score predictions let you bet on a scoreline of certain events in a match, such as goals bagged by both teams in a soccer game. By predicting the score, you forecast the outcome of a fixture along the way.
Depending on the implied outcome, you may write down score bets as “2-1”, “1-1”, or “1-2”. A bigger first digit means the home side is winning, while a bigger second digit represents the away side winning. An equal score essentially means a draw outcome.
A tip on an exact score wins if the event ends with that result. This betting market is mostly a regular time option (e.g. 90 minutes plus a few added minutes in each of the halves).
Let’s take a Chelsea vs Liverpool match in the EPL as an example. Say, you bet on the 2-0 option. For you to win, Chelsea must get a victory with that score. You will lose if they win with any other score, or if Liverpool wins (including the 2-0 score).
Half-time score predictions
Scoreline predictions come in different manners depending on the sport. For example, if a game consists of two halves (e.g. soccer), Takebet South Africa provides guaranteed correct score tips for half-time alongside full-time.
Half-time means predicting the score of the first half. Otherwise, everything is the same. So, if we take the same Chelsea vs Liverpool match as in the previous example, betting on a 1-0 half-time score means you predict Chelsea to lead 1-0 by the break.
Also, you can bet on double tips that combine a half-time and a full-time score prediction.
Sports and tournaments we predict
The most suitable sport for score betting is soccer. Then comes ice hockey, because this sport has a relatively low scoring level, and thus one can guess the scoreline of a game.
Tennis is another sport with score betting tips: a punter can tip on sets in a match or games in a set. Finally, in basketball, we predict the scores of quarters.
Read on for examples and to learn more about tournaments we predict!
Soccer is the king of sports given its universal appeal. However, compared to other sports, soccer is low-scoring, so there is a real chance for anyone to guess the score of goals.
Some of the soccer tournaments with free exact score tips are:
- UEFA Champions League
- UEFA Europa League
- Premier League
- La Liga Primera Division
- Italian Serie A
- German Bundesliga
- French Ligue 1
- USA MLS
- South African Premier Division
- FIFA World Cup
- UEFA Euro
- Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON)
Example: Barcelona plays Real Madrid, and you stake on the match goal score being 0-2. The only outcome that brings you victory is Madrid (as the away team) winning two to zero. Everything else is a loss: any other win of Madrid, Barcelona winning, and a draw.

In tennis, expect Takebet South Africa to drop tips on all the top tournaments of men and women. Our analysts predict the scores of sets and games. The options differ for bo3 and bo5 fixtures.
Tennis competitions with some of the best correct score predictions include:
- Australian Open
- French Open
- US Open
- ATP Masters 1000 and 500
- WTA 1000 (Premier) and 500
Example: you stake on 3-1 by sets in a bo5 Grand Slam match between Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev. Given that Novak is the first side, the score you stake on is in his favour. So, for you to win this bet, the Serb must win three sets and lose precisely one.
Experts of Takebet South Africa drop exact score betting tips on top basketball games during the season. The NBA is predicted regularly alongside Euroleague and other international tournaments when they happen: FIBA World Cup, Eurobasket, Afrobasket, etc.
In basketball, analysts predict the scoreline of quarters won by each team.
Example: you wager on 2-2 by quarters in a match between Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics in the NBA. For you to win the bet, each franchise must win two out of four quarters. In this case, you depend on the outcomes of quarters in a match.
Ice hockey is insanely popular in America and across Northern Europe. So we regularly predict the NHL on Takebet South Africa, alongside correct score tips guaranteed for the IIHF Ice Hockey Championship and the Winter Olympic hockey.
In ice hockey, you bet on the scores of goals, the same as in soccer.
Example: you pick the bet on 3-2 in a Colorado Avalanche vs Tampa Bay Lightning match in the NHL. You need Avalanche as the home side to win with that exact score in the regular time of the game.
How experts analyse sports for correct score predictions
Forecasting scores takes a lot of knowledge of trends that come into play for particular teams and athletes and their clashes against each other. To get this right, experts of Takebet South Africa complete a tremendous job of analysing sports data that affects the scoreline.
Let’s review what we explore when getting our predictions for sporting scores ready:
- Run of form: results from the last five to ten matches in the same competition and in all tournaments. For tennis, it is appropriate to account for all tournaments with the same surface this season. What exactly are we looking for? Outcomes, sure, but also scores, the ratio of scored and conceded goals/points, the periods in which the teams scored the most, shots on target and defensive actions, and other stats. The goal is to grasp the current scoring trend of the teams against similar opponents.
- Head-to-heads: recent H2H games, for the current and the last year, let experts in on trends between the given teams or athletes: results, scores, dynamics, etc.
- Recent news: knowing the latest updates helps! Especially when it comes to team sports with deep benches and groundbreaking performers, such as soccer, where you need to know about the injuries and the absentees to predict lineups and scores.
Exact score betting strategies
There are some decent strategies punters can use to increase their chances of winning. Being on the team of one of the top correct score prediction sites, experts of Takebet South Africa also use professional strategies to come up with successful picks more often than not.
Let’s explore one of the betting strategies for score match tips below!
The Martingale strategy for scoring bets in soccer. First, you analyse the last season of a league for the most popular exact score: say, it is 1:0. Then, you pick a team which had the most games with this final score: say, it is Manchester United in the EPL. Finally, you explore the odds archive for 1×2 betting odds of those games to understand the level of squads against which Man Utd played with that particular score on most occasions: say, those were the teams that either equal Red Devils or are slightly weaker. Now, you arm yourself with a Martingale strategy and start picking similar games for betting on the 1:0 score — and each time you lose, you multiply your stake to compensate for your current loss and win the sum you could win when making your first bet in the series.
Example: imagine that each time you bet on the 1:0 score, you get the odds of 4.00 (+300 American; 3/1 Fractional). The first time, you bet 10 units of money and lose. You could win 30 units from that bet, but now you are minus 10. The second time, you bet 12.5 units. If you win, you will get 40 units of profit: those 30 plus another 10 to compensate you for your loss. And so on. Be sure your bankroll is enough for a few steps!
