Half time full time predictions overview
Though being a little more tricky than simple outcome bets on games, half time full time betting tips let you make a well-grained prediction both on the outcome of the first half of a match and on the result of the whole fixture. Nine options are available — all possible combinations of the half-time and match outcomes. The example is HT/FT — 1/2 and 2/1 tips for today, which are particularly popular among our readers.
The half-time/full-time option is not specific to soccer — we offer them for other sports with a game separated into two halves. Read on for an explanation of this betting option from Takebet South Africa, the best half time full time (HT/FT) prediction site on the Internet!
Explanation of half time full time betting tips
All our free HT/FT tips are predictions for the outcome of the first half and a complete match tied in one bet. A soccer match is a perfect example, consisting of two halves, 45 minutes each. So you bet on the outcome by half-time and the final whistle.
Below you will find all nine possibilities for the best HT FT predictions.
Home win/home win (HT/FT – 1/1): the home team leads at half-time and wins. Example: you stake on the home team to win the first 45 minutes and the whole Chelsea vs Liverpool match. You will win if Chelsea get ahead by the break and win.
Home win/draw (HT/FT – 1/X): the home team leads after the first 45 minutes, and the match is a tie. Example: in a Chelsea vs Liverpool fixture, you wager on the home team to win at half-time and draw the game. If Chelsea do this, you will win your bet.
Home win/away win (HT/FT – 1/2): the home team leads at half-time but loses the match. Example: you stake on the home team to win the first half and lose the full-time in a Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If Chelsea lead at half-time and then lose, you will succeed.
Draw/home win (HT/FT – X/1): the half-time is a draw, and the home side wins the match. Example: you stake on the first half to end in a draw and the home team to get a final victory in a Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If the game is level after the first 45 minutes, but afterwards, Chelsea win the whole deal, then you will win free HT FT tips of this kind.
Draw/draw (HT/FT – X/X): the match ends in a tie both at half-time and full-time. Example: you stake on a Chelsea vs Liverpool fixture to end in a draw after the first 45 minutes and after the whole 90 minutes. If the first 45 minutes finish with a 0-0 score, and afterwards, each team scores once to make the final scoreline 1-1, you will win your bet.
Draw/away win (HT/FT – X/2): the teams draw at half-time, while the outcome is the away win. Example: you stake on a draw by the break and on the away team to win a Chelsea vs Liverpool fixture. If the teams are square by half-time, but afterwards, Liverpool take the lead and win the whole match, you will win such betting tips on HT FT.
Away win/home win (HT/FT – 2/1): the away team leads at half-time, but the home team wins. Example: you wager on the away squad to lead after the first 45 minutes and the home side to win a Chelsea vs Liverpool match. If Liverpool get to be the best team by the break, but then Chelsea pull off a comeback — you will win your bet!
Away win/draw (HT/FT – 2/X): the away team leads at half-time, and the match is a draw. Example: you bet on the away side to win by the break and then draw a Chelsea vs Liverpool game. You need the Reds to get ahead by half-time, lose the lead and draw.
Away win/away win (HT/FT – 2/2): the away team leads after the first 45 minutes and wins the match. Example: you place a bet on the away side to have the upper hand in the scoreline by the break and the final whistle in a Chelsea vs Liverpool game. To win, you need Liverpool to lead at half-time and be ahead by the match’s final whistle.
Note: goals scored in the extra time are not eligible for the HT/FT option.

How experts analyse soccer for HT FT tips
The experts of Takebet South Africa use a massive amount of data for our HT/FT free tips.
Soccer analysis starts with checking and comparing head-to-head games between the teams to spot trends, preferably in the last couple of years. Then, we review the style of play for both sides, offensive and defensive efficiency, ball possession, and more.
The experts look into the form of each team in their past few games in the same tournament and all competitions. We analyse the efficiency of each team in both halves for our HT FT soccer predictions, taking into account their ability to bounce back from a lost first half. We also analyse the team style of play for strengths and weaknesses.
Working on half time full time tips for betting, the experts use attacking statistics such as goals scored and shots on target, taking particular interest in the percentage of goals scored by each team in the first half. By doing that, we can predict the most probable end to the first 45 minutes. Of course, learning about team motivation helps, too.
Lastly, our experts check the latest news for each team and guess probable lineups to see if both teams have their key players available. All this is to offer HT FT pro tips!
