Penalty Props Betting Strategy:
It’s best to look at a teams history in regard to penalties, and then the oppositions stats. A good example is Glasgow Rangers. They get a lot of penalties in the Scottish Premiership due to the fact that teams sit back against them and defend heavily. So they are going to be in the box more, and then more likely to get a penalty. On top of that, they have a top goalscorer in James Tavernier, who scores a lot of penalties. So assuming the opposition is weaker, making bets on Rangers to get and score a penalty makes sense. If they are in Europe against a better team or playing Celtic, it’s less likely that bet will come in. It’s all about how the opposition will line up and play against them.
