Both teams to score NO

The Scatter Gun strategy has been well documented on this site and has proven to be a popular strat in the chat rooms. notably because of its simplicity and good returns from modest stakes.

The most common dangers are the dreaded 0-0 at HT and 2-0 or 0-2 before HT. In the former scenario, Gundulf, the SG creator, often goes into deeper liability territory by LAYING 0-0 @ 2.0 for his initial stake (generally £11). Stays 0-0 and you lose £22 of course but any one goal will give you a scratch trade: You lose the SG bet but win on the 0-0 LAY
The second scenario - 2-0 or 0-2 before HT is a different animal; ruthless, uncompromising, takes no prisoners attitude.
Accept defeat and live to fight another day is the correct response I feel.

Those who look at their trading with a more cautious, bank preservation mindset might want to try out the following idea.

BACK BTTS NO for either 50% or 100% of your SG stake. (You are paying for insurance so you decide if you want 3rd Party, Fire & Theft or Fully Comp)
This will eliminate all those pesky scorelines like 0-0/1-0 / 0-1 / 2-0 / 0-2 / 3-0 / 0-3, etc.
The odds for BTTS NO should be no less than 2.0

Depending on how the game is progressing (check in play if goals look likely or not) you can always add higher scorelines like 2-2 / 3-1 / 1-3.......or even a straight BACK of Over3.5
