Have you ever wondered what ‘Other Home Win’, ‘Other Away Win’ or ‘Other Draw’ mean? The three terms are found in the Colossus Correct Score Football pools, as well as Correct Score markets in the wider betting community and are pretty simple to understand.
What do Other Home Win / Draw / Away Win mean?
Each are selections in Correct Score betting markets, designed to remove the need for solo players or Captains to have to pick unlikely scores. Each of these scores have been grouped together into ‘Other’ brackets.
‘Other Home Win’ covers the home team winning by any score other than the ones specifically listed (4-0, 4-1, 5-3 etc) and ‘Other Away Win’ is the same but in favour of the away side (0-4, 1-4, 3-5 etc). Therefore, if a team scores 4 or more and wins the game, the result will be settled as an ‘Other Home/Away Win’ depending on which team has won.
‘Other Draw’ covers all draws other than 0-0 and 1-1 (2-2, 3-3 and upwards).
When should you choose Other Home Win / Draw / Away Win?
In short, when you have the feeling that a game is going to be particularly high scoring, with one side thrashing the other or both sides fairly evenly matched but likely to score and concede at will.
It is probably worth targeting traditionally creative and attacking sides, blessed with an array of firepower, such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal. Conservative sides who seek to defend first, attack later are less likely to have high scoring encounters frequently.
For example, 7 of the 11 meetings between Liverpool and Arsenal that took place between 2015 and 2019 finished as an ‘Other’ result.
Another approach is to look for games that you regard as a mismatch. For example, in the four matches Manchester City player against the eventually relegated Stoke and Swansea, they registered wins of 7-2, 2-0, 4-0 and 5-0, meaning that three of the four victories were ‘Other’ wins.
