What is a halftime bet?
A half-time bet is a bet that you can place on the outcome at half-time. The bookmaker will give you the option to choose who will win at half time or which team will be leading at halftime. The half time result bet is placed in addition to your regular bet. Moreover, it is usually a separate line or parlay. You can also use halftime bets to enhance your regular bets, but this depends on your favorite online sportsbook.
When placing a half time bet, you will typically have two choices. Either you can pick whether one team will lead at the end of the first half, or you can pick which team (or teams) will score first in the second half. In some cases, though, there might be more options for placing halftime bets than just these two options.
For example, if there are three possible scenarios for who will win at halftime (one team leading by one point; another team leading by two points; or both teams tied at zero), each option would have its line and payout structure.

Half time bet example
Here is an example of a half time bet. If you think that the home team will lose at half-time, then you could place a bet on this. In this example, we have Everton playing against Manchester City in the Premier League (English football). The odds for Everton to lose at half-time are 8/11, which means that if you bet $10 on them losing at half-time and they do, then you would win $23 in return.
The odds against Everton losing at half-time are 1/1 (i.e., 11/10), so if you bet $10 on that outcome and it happens, you would receive $21 in return.
