Goal Kick or Shot on Target Betting in Football

Last updated on 3 月 11th, 2022

A goal kick, or as it is called, an indirect free kick, is the introduction of the ball into play from the penalty area. This free-kick is awarded to the other team after the ball has gone out of the playing space or the goal line from the opposing team.


This action in football restarts the play in a game and is dictated by Law 16 of the “Laws of the Game”.  Most bookmakers give great odds with this outcome.


In this article, we’ll talk about how shot target bet or shots on goal in betting actually work. Check out the best Asian bookmakers on VOdds and get up to €/£100 welcome bonus!



What Does Shot Target Mean?


As with other betting markets, shots on goal in football have a variety of bets that beginners and seasoned bettors alike might consider. For example:


  • Bets on shots on target. At first, the bets on free-kick football could be considered. But in many cases, beginners choose precisely this outcome. It is easier to predict based on statistics. If a team has been scoring many goals lately, the chances of more shots on target are high. However, goals also count as shots on target! Consider this when placing your bet on this event!


  • What do shots on goal bets mean? You can not bet separately on free kicks or hits on target. Players can make things much more manageable. Shots on goal statistics are available on various resources. Starting from it, you can make the correct prediction.


  • Betting on free kicks. If you carefully analyze the odds of one of the teams on a large number of goals, it can be a good bet. If one of the teams shoots on goal more often, then the opposing squad will give shots from the goal. Bookmakers, in many ways, give good odds for such an event. Professional bettors use them for their good. Therefore, beginners also need to take a closer look at these rates.


You can also define the following betting options:


  • The usual outcome

  • Total shots on goal

  • Outcome using a handicap

  • Individual goal kick totals.
