Player Clean Sheet Explained
As every football coach has said to his team, “If we don’t concede a goal, we can’t lose”. A clean sheet is a fairly simple term in football and means that a team has managed to prevent the opponent from scoring for the duration of a match.
The classic quote basically means that the worst that can happen is a nil-nil draw if the opponent doesn’t score. Of course, this is easier said than done, and even the best goalkeepers cannot keep a clean sheet every week. Nevertheless, an estimated 46% of all football matches end with a clean sheet.
Betting on Player Clean sheets
Clean sheet statistics are extremely versatile and can be used for a variety of bets – this data should be in every punter’s toolbox. The first market that comes to mind is, of course, clean sheets – and yes, that is the most obvious, but that isn’t all.
Any betting market that involves goalscoring is directly related to a clean sheet. For example, if you want to predict an exact score, you may opt for 1-0, as this is one of the most common scorelines – well, that 0 indicates that a team has kept a clean sheet.
Basically, if you bet on a clean sheet, you’re betting that the opposing team won’t score a goal. Other examples include over/under goals, win to nil, score casts and much more, which we’ll delve into later in the article.

Ways To Use Player Clean Sheet Stats
As we mentioned earlier, clean sheet statistics are an excellent set of data that can be used for many of the typical betting markets – entire bet builders can be created using these statistics. Below are the most common ways to use clean sheet odds and statistics.
Who would have guessed it? Yes, you can use clean sheets statistics to predict clean sheets, players who are able to keep many clean sheets, will probably continue to do so, especially when up against weaker opponents.
Halftime & Fulltime Exact Scores
Guessing the exact score is no easy task; games at the highest level can be particularly unpredictable, but if you bet on a team finishing with a score of zero, you’re essentially betting on the opponent keeping a clean sheet.
Both Teams to Score
Common in bet builders, both teams to score betting involves you predicting whether both teams will get on the score sheet – usually in the form of ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; if you think the players in the squad will keep a clean sheet, you can bet ‘No’ to indicate that both teams won’t score.
To Win to Nil
To win to nil betting is often considered a ‘special’ and may not be found for every league or competition. It basically means betting on a team to beat their opponents without conceding any goals.
Another difficult bet to predict is scorecast betting. Here, two conditions must be predicted. The bettor must both pick a goal scorer and predict the exact result. Understandably, the odds are quite high and the statistics of players not conceding goals can help you decide whether a team will keep a clean sheet.
Clean sheet Player Betting Tips and Predictions
Clean sheet odds are already great, and just betting on this market alone could yield some positive results – if you use our stats and search for. Of course, nothing is guaranteed, but there are some things you can do improve your betting experience.
One of the most commonly used features in football betting is the ability to combine small, realistic bets together on a single betting slip to increase the odds – or in other words, a bet builder. Betting on a clean sheet is another option that can be added to a bet builder and can be complemented by other types of bets, such as the number of shots on goal, BTTS and many others.
Use Other Stats Pages
It cannot be stressed enough: The more research you do, the more accurate your predictions will be. ThePuntersPage offers a wide range of statistics to ensure you have everything you could possibly need.
A great example of using two stats together would be to combine player clean sheet stats and goalscorers stats. Finding a team with a good goalscorer and solid defence could be perfect for scorecast and win-to-nil bets.
Don’t be afraid to be creative, the statistics page can be used for many other markets, even indirectly. For example, whether a team scores a goal or misses a penalty could depend on the skills of the goalkeeper.
A comparison of defenders on the same team – there could be one defender who has a weaker defensive record, meaning that the team tends to concede more goals when he plays. A bet against the defender keeping a clean sheet could be the right way to go.
Clean sheet Player Records
Clean sheets have been around ever since they started keeping score in football – even if they weren’t always known as clean sheets. The term dates back to the 1930s, when referees wrote the scores on white paper. If a team didn’t score, they had a blank scorecard which they called a “clean sheet of paper”, and “clean sheet” has been the go-to term ever since.
The modern game has evolved thanks to football’s data-driven approach; many statistics that would never have seemed important in the past are now vital for teams to gain an edge over their opponents. This has led to more and more data being collected, which is why the following records are relatively modern.
When we speak of clean sheets, we immediately think of goalkeepers. The man between the sticks is the last line of defence and it’s often considered the most difficult position on the pitch.
Perennially underrated, some of the greatest players of all time have been goalkeepers – here are some of the best of that bunch.
