As alluded to, anytime goalscorer is one of the most popular markets football punters go for. This is because of the nature of the bet, where bettors are consistently engaged and can land their winnings at any moment.
Regardless of who you have as the anytime goalscorer, as long as they score within 90 minutes of football, you’re a winner! The time in the 90 minutes, how they score (besides an own goal), how many they score, how long they are on the pitch; none of this matters, as long as your chosen player scores.
The anytime goalscorer odds will, of course, differ greatly for certain players. For example, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will be much lower odds than Giorgio Chiellini and Gerard Pique to score anytime. At the same time, however, this allows the potential for great winnings, should you back a name who doesn’t score so often.
For example, certain teams are often poor at defending corners, which could allow the centre-backs a great chance at bagging a goal. Plus, particular players take penalties, which could, at any moment, result in your bet landing. Anytime goalscorer could also see defenders/midfielders priced highly, throughout the game, where they could be against the run of play. Then, before you know it, the big men from the back go up, and your player scores.
