What is a Correct Score market?
Correct Score is a common betting market used in sports betting. It requires the user to predict the exact final score of the game. For example, the game to finish 3-2. The Correct Score market can also apply to only the first half or period, i.e. First Half Correct Score / First Period Correct Score.
As there are many different possibilities for a correct score in most sports the betting market often has larger odds. This means that the correct score betting market could potentially offer a lot of value for bettors if they were able to successfully bet on the correct outcome of the final score of a game.
Correct Score bets are most commonly placed on sports such as Ice Hockey, Baseball and Soccer. Some sportsbooks offer correct score markets for higher scoring sports such as American Football and Basketball, however these usually have large odds due to the higher scorer nature of these sports which make predicting the correct score very hard.
