4. Correct Score / First goal scorer double - Most bookies promote this type of bet in their windows or on their sites. You predict the score and the first goalscorer and effectively get a double bet. For example, predict ManU to win 2-1 at 7/1 and Ruud Van Nistelrooy to score first at 4/1 and you'll get a double worth 28/1. Sounds appealing, but in our opinion we feel it's probably better value to go for two correct scores in a double. After all, there are 19 other outfield players that could score first goal! Judge for yourself, in some cases teams have a prolific goal scorer / penalty taker / free kick taker, which might warrant a flutter on this type of bet. You can get some real value out of a free kick taker and correct score. For example, Leeds to win 3-1 at 16/1 and Harte to score first at 14/1 would give you a double worth 224/1! Anectdotely though, a colleague of ours worked in a high street bookies for 2 years and had never saw anyone win a correct score / first goalscorer bet!
