How to Place Clean Sheet Bets
Placing clean sheet bets is easy, and any Kiwi bettor can do it. At Betpack, we make the process even easier by providing you with all the tools you need, from sports betting guides to reviews of popular payment methods in New Zealand. Here's how you can place your first clean sheet bet in four simple steps.
Join a Top Bookie
Register with a reliable betting site. If you cannot find one yourself, check out Betpack's list of top-rated bookmakers. Registration is a pretty straightforward process, where you will be prompted to enter and then verify your personal and contact details.
Deposit and Claim Welcome Bonus
Next, fund your new account. To do this, choose one of the deposit options that the bookie works with. Before you deposit, don't forget to check for a welcome bonus. If you pick a Betpack-listed bookmaker, chances are that it has an enticing sign-up offer too.
Scan Clean Sheet Options
Now pick the clean sheet betting market you will bet on. To do this, go to the Sports section and choose the football or soccer matches you will wager on. Then find the clean sheet bet type you are looking for and click on it. It will be added to your bet slip.
Place Your Clean Sheet Bet
You can include one or more clean sheet bets in your bet slip, meaning you can bet on single or parley clean sheet wagers. Whichever you choose, remember to check your selections, odds and bet stakes before placing your wager. When you are sure everything is in order, submit your clean sheet bet.
Strategies and Tips for Clean Sheet in Betting
Whether you are an experienced bettor or a wagering beginner, you can make the most of your clean sheet bets if you use a clean sheet betting strategy that has produced results for other punters. To help you in your efforts, we have compiled a list of three such tips. Use these betting strategies in conjunction with methods you develop yourself, and you will likely improve your chances of winning.
Not all teams play like Pep's Manchester City or Ancelotti's Real Madrid. Some coaches love to win while playing ugly. That means they get the win, but the match is nothing to write home about. Most of these football matches end with the team that plays an unattractive style of football winning and keeping a clean sheet.
So, yes, you won't enjoy the performance of the team you are backing. However, because that team probably has a rock-solid backline and midfield, your chances of winning your clean sheet bet will be pretty good.
One team keeping a clean sheet is contingent on the other team not scoring goals. So if you are planning to back a side not to concede, first look at the opposition. If the team you are betting against has bags of goals in it, it might be better to pick a different match.
In contrast, if your team plays against an offensively impotent side, your chances of getting a clean sheet dramatically improve. This is another reason why you should analyze teams and players before placing clean sheet bets.
Weather conditions can have a big influence on the success of your clean sheet bets. That is particularly true if you are betting on lower-divisions, cup matches or amateur and reserve football leagues. Teams in these lower-tier competitions don't have the best pitches, so you can imagine how unplayable those pitches become after some heavy rains.
And when teams find it hard to string two passes together or players can't dribble past opponents, the only outcome to expect is a goalless draw in which no team scores. That might not be everyone's idea of entertainment, of course. However, triggering a couple of betting offers or free bets plus a winning clean sheet bet will more than make up for that.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Clean Sheet in Football Betting?
A clean sheet in football means that one of the teams hasn't conceded any goals. So, in football betting, backing a team to keep a clean sheet is a prediction that the team won't concede any goals during the entire game.
Does Clean Sheet Betting Include Overtime?
It depends, and you need to check with your sports betting site to find out. Most bookmakers offer clean sheet betting markets on full-time outcomes only, meaning overtime or extra time is not included.
Does a 0:0 Draw Count as a Clean Sheet?
Yes, it does. If the final result is 0:0, both teams have kept a clean sheet. So, whichever team you back is a winning bet for you.
Is Clean Sheet Betting Available for All Sports?
Clean sheet betting is most commonly associated with sports like football (soccer), hockey, and rugby, where teams aim to prevent their opponents from scoring. However, its availability may vary depending on the sportsbook and the sport itself.
