What does the term "exact 1st half goals" mean in the world of football betting? What is meant by the term "exact 1st half goals"?

In the world of football betting, the "exact 1st half goals" line allows you to bet on how many goals you think will be scored in the first half of any football match.

Edin Dzeko of Inter Milan celebrates a gaol.  The meaning of the Exact 1st Half Goals bet is explained.With this line, it doesn't matter which team scores the goals - all that matters is how many cumulative goals are scored between the two sides.

For instance - here is an example of a real "exact 1st half goals" line from an English Premier League match:

0 Goals, 2.37
1 Goal, 2.50
2 Goals, 4.75
3 Goals, 13.00
4 Goals, 41.00
5+ Goals, 101.00


So, if you think that the two teams involved will have a high-scoring first half, you'd want to target the 3, 4 and even 5+ goal lines.

On the other hand, if you believe that it will be a low-scoring contest, you'd want to look at the 0 or 1 goal lines, though they obviously have much lower payouts.
