We all know someone who loves a flutter on a 'first goal' market.

In most games, the first goal scorer is often a complete fluke of a phenomenon that is impossible to predict - one of the most famous examples being the 2010 Grand Final replay where Tyson Goldsack scored the first at odds of $81.

Some players, however, are much more likely than others.
