What is the percentage of goals scored during added time?


The question is very broad. However, taking statistics from the 2012-13 English Premiership (Games played till 29-Oct-2012), the total number of goals scored are 262, of which 36 are scored from corners. This gives a percentage figure of 13.74%

The breakup of each team are as follows.

+---------------------+---------------+--------------------+------------+ | Team | Goals Scored | Goals from Corners | Percentage | +---------------------+---------------+--------------------+------------+ | Arsenal | 14 | 1 | 7.14 | | Aston Villa | 7 | 2 | 28.57 | | Chelsea | 21 | 1 | 4.76 | | Everton | 17 | 2 | 11.76 | | Fulham | 19 | 3 | 15.79 | | Liverpool | 12 | 1 | 8.33 | | Manchester City | 18 | 3 | 16.67 | | Manchester United | 24 | 6 | 25.00 | | Newcastle United | 11 | 0 | 0.00 | | Norwich City | 7 | ...

SLG is the expected value of total bases ("TB") of an at-bat. You would use it slightly differently from batting average, since it's measuring a different thing.

Let's see some examples.

Player A has a .300 BA, .450 SLG, 1.5 SLG/BA ratio Player B has a .280 BA, .320 SLG, 1.1 SLG/BA ratio

You can use batting average to measure, for example, the probability that one of two players gets a hit in their next at-bat. That would be 1-((1-.3)*(1-.28)) = 1-(.7*.72) = (.496). So these two players, on average, will get one hit between the two of them about half the time.

You cannot determine that with SLG, of course, as SLG does not measure proportion of at bats with hits. SLG measures total bases, though, so you can use that.

For example, in this case, you would say that the expected value of Player A's total bases after one at-bat is 0.450 (his SLG). So, in an average at-bat Player A records 0.45 bases. Player B, similarly, records 0.32 bases in an average...

As you can see, the x-axis gives the end of the time interval. In other words, the bar over 50 on the x-axis represents the number of goals scored in the 45-50 minute time range. The y-axis is the frequency, or number of goals in that time range.

Confidence Interval

There are also 3 lines on the graph. The middle line gives the mean number of goals across all the time intervals. The top line is the mean number of goals across all the time intervals plus the standard deviation of the number of goals. The bottom line is the same thing but subtracting one standard deviation. I added these to the graph because they provide nice reference points to help determine time intervals that can be considered outliers.

Late First Half Goals

The first thing that sticks out from looking at the graph is the number of goals scored between minutes 40-45. It seems that a lot of goals are scored right before the halftime mark. This is pretty interesting, and something that I...

Somehow I haven’t posted this before but I was wondering whether a high scoring first half of a game is predictive of goals scored in the second half so I’m going to look at that in a few different ways.

Firstly, here’s a breakdown of the half time scores in the last 5,100 Premiership games – both in terms of raw numbers and percentages.

These games average 1.16 goals in the first half. The average game in this sample has 2.64 goals, leaving 1.48 to be scored in the average second half. However, does the number of goals scored in the first half have any bearing on the number of goals scored in the second?

Firstly I’m going to split games by the score at half time (home team leading/game tied/away team leading):

Home teams score 57.8% of Premiership goals but it turns out the split isn’t exactly even between the first and second halves – they score 58.5% of first half goals and 57.2% of second half goals. I’d hazard a guess at score...

Since the St. Louis Blues replaced coach Ken Hitchcock with Mike Yeo on Feb. 1, they are 5-1-0 with 3.33 goals per game during that stretch. Injuries to forwards (ACL) and (lower body) have given (C, 3 percent) a spot in the top six. He has six goals and is plus-5 with 15 shots on goal in the past six games. Berglund will likely cede his spot on the first power play to Stastny once he's healthy, but will still see time with the second unit. Even prior to centering the second line, Berglund had been playing above average minutes for a bottom six forward (16:08 per game in past 14).


Forward (LW/RW, 4 percent) has been turning lemon drops into lemonade for the Washington Capitals. He averages 11:01 of ice time per game playing on the third line, but will somehow carry a six-game point streak into the Capitals' week off. Connolly has four goals, four assists and is plus-7 during the streak, with all of his production coming at even strength....

90 Minutes Play
All match markets are based on the result at the end of a scheduled 90 minutes play unless otherwise stated. This includes any added injury or stoppage time but does not include extra-time, time allocated for a penalty shootout or golden goal.

The exceptions to this rule are in relation to friendly matches, where all match markets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes (excluding any extra-time), irrespective of whether the full 90 minutes is played, and Beach Soccer where markets are specifically settled on 36 minutes play only.

For matches listed specifically as Youth, for the purpose of reference, ‘’Youth’’ is a generic term we use for Soccer matches played between teams where the players are aged below 23 years old.

Extra-Time In-Play Markets
Bets are settled on the official statistics for the extra-time period. Any goals or corners that were taken or scored during regulation time do not...

Adding Extra Value To 1X2 Bets: Part 2 - Goal Timings


Throughout my time as a punter, there have been many occasions when I think I have found the perfect 1X2 bet. The kind involving a fantastic home team and a team that just can't win away. You look at the price and it's near to or better than even money. Know the feeling? Then you probably also know the feeling of seeing that 'dead cert' fall short.

I've had this happen an innumerable number of times now, and although, of course many of these have come through and led to large profits, it doesn't take long to realise that n the world of football there is no such thing as a certainty, especially when using the 1X2 market.

As I have grown more experienced as a gambler and a tipster, I have moved more and more away from the standard match winner market and now my largest stakes bets are nearly always using the goals market. These bets can come in a number of forms, most notably via variations of goal...

You might be surprised to hear that the ratio of corners to goals is almost nil.

On average, the data show that a corner is good for (drumroll ....) 0.022 goals. This means that the average EPL team scores 1 goal from a corner about every 10 games. And this helps to explain the lack of a correlation between the number of corners and goal scoring. The infrequency of the goals from corners combined with a lack of dispersion between teams in corners per game lead conspire to make corners mostly, well, useless when it comes to scoring goals.

In this sample of matches, Fulham and Arsenal led the league in converting corner-created shots into goals at a rate of over .25, while at the low end, none of the shots created by Sunderland, Man City, Bolton, or Birmingham found the net.

Average number of goals scored in an NHL game has gone through ups and downs during NHL history. The charts below show a time series on the Goals per Game measure for all skaters as well as forwards and defensemen separately. Numbers represent the total number of goals scored by both teams during a single game.

In the charts, the 1980s clearly stand out as a high scoring era. After mid 1990s the game has entered a low scoring era that was last seen during the 1950s. The number of goals has been consistently slightly higher during the regular season than in the playoffs.

Percentage of Goals Scored by Forwards and Defensemen

The second chart shows the percentage of goals scored by NHL forwards and defensemen. This ratio has been remarkably stable during the league history suggesting that the role of the defense in creating offense has changed little over time. Over the years, forwards have scored between...

"I have got a bit of searching for you to do here," says Ammar Ali, cackling inwardly. "I would like to know which minute of Premier League matches has seen most goals. That is, how many goals have been scored in the first, second, third minute of games, etc. I presume the 60th minute has witnessed most goals."

Well, the trouble when you presume, Ammar, is that you make a pres out of you and me. Ah. Erm. Anyway, thanks to our friends at Opta, we can tell you that in fact the 60th minute is only the 19th most prolific in the Premier League era, having witnessed 261 goals (that's an average of 12 per season, by our reckoning). The stats are skewed somewhat by the fact that the 90th and 45th minutes include all added time, but it is then that most goals are scored – a considerable 1,069, or about 51 per season, coming in the 90th minute or later. There have been 602 goals (almost 29 per season) in the 45th minute or first-half stoppage time.

Late goals are a clear trend...
