The table offers the number of clean sheets a team has had throughout the campaign, and then converts this number into a percentage which is displayed on the far-right column.

The ‘Failed To Score' table works in much the same way but deals with the number of times a team has not managed to score in a match, obviously implying that the opposing team has kept a clean sheet. The ‘Win to Nil’ table also dictates how many times a team has won without conceding a goal. We have a fantastic Win to Nil stats page for a more in-depth review.

Table Stats Meaning

Clean Sheets

To put it simply, a clean sheet is achieved when a team goes through an entire game of football without conceding a single goal. The easiest form of betting on a clean sheet is a ‘Yes or No’ bet on a team to get a clean sheet.

Win to Nil

A Win to Nil means that a team will not only keep a clean sheet but will also go on to win the match. This is a trickier bet as there are more variables.

Failed To Score

On the other hand, a ‘Failing To Score’ bet stipulates that a team won’t manage to score in 90 minutes of football. The bet basically means that the opposing team will get a clean sheet.

Clean Sheets Tips & Predictions

The clean sheet is a classic bet and has been around for a while. It has been gaining traction as a worthwhile bet, offering up good value in many cases.

There are several ways to bet on a clean sheet without explicitly picking teams who’ll keep a clean sheet in a match. These include placing a Both Teams To Score' bet and choosing ‘No’, implying one team will keep a clean sheet.

Similarly, a popular betting market is betting on a ‘Win to Nil’, which basically means that a team will win while also keeping a clean sheet.

Betting on ‘Under 0.5 goals' means you are predicting that a particular team will keep a clean sheet. Lastly, if you bet on an exact score of 0-0, this will of course mean that the opposition will also have to keep a clean sheet.

Clean Sheet Betting Tips

There is one factor that will greatly benefit every punter into making more valuable and overall better bets: research. Some due diligence will go a long way in the betting scene.

There are two important factors to consider when researching clean sheet stats.

  • Team Defending Stats – How well a team can hold off attackers for 90 minutes.
  • Team Attacking Stats – How good a team is at breaking down defences and scoring goals.

Firstly, when betting on clean sheets, defensive stats are crucial. This page is a great start, as knowing which team gets most clean sheets is vital for these types of bets. Looking for teams who consistently concede few goals could be great value.

On the other hand, checking out an opponent’s attacking output is a great way to tell if they’ll be able to break a deadlock.

Besides these stats, keeping up to date with the context of matches is hugely important. Bigger clubs might rest their best players if they have other important games coming up. Keeping an eye on the nuances of football will greatly improve your betting.

Finally, predictors like our excellent KickForms.com service provides added information to use in placing a more well-made bet.
