Over Under 3.5 Goals Meaning

To many people, especially those new to betting, the term “over under 3.5 goals” can be confusing. I mean, what is .5 of a goal anyway? Well, the good news is that there is no need to worry as it’s actually a very simple way to bet on football.

Put simply, over 3.5 goals means that at the end of the football match’s 90 minutes – not including any extra time – the game must have a score with at least four goals in it. Or, in the case of under 3.5, less than four goals scored. All the .5 is there for is to eliminate the bet in the case of a draw. In fact, this simplicity has seen this particular football betting market rise dramatically in popularity.

For those of you that would like to learn more, you have come to the right place. Here we will run you through everything you need to know so that you can get involved and enjoy one of the best football bets on offer which is also known as totals betting.


Understanding totals betting

A total bet is a handicapped single wager on whether or not the team’s combined goals in a match will be over or under a particular amount, in this case is 3.5. The bookmakers will have calculated the likeness of this and created and set their odds accordingly.

When placing a total bet, the bettor simply wants the final score to be above or below their prediction. It has always been a popular way to bet for North American bettors as well as in Asia and now it is becoming a growing bet in the European markets too.

Asian Total betting vs European Total betting

One Minute's Silence

Asian Total betting is similar to Over Under betting but only works with football and, like European totals betting, rules out draws. Here, bets are comprised of two total wagers that have been divided by .5, giving you .25. Should the match you bet on end in a draw after the handicap has been applied, the original stake is returned.


Over Under 3.5 Betting Example And Why Research Matters

In December 2019 there was a Merseyside derby match played between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield. At the time, Liverpool had nearly collected the maximum points available in the Premier League season, dropping just two points in a draw earlier in the year. In contrast, Everton were, at the time, hovering just above the Premier League relegation zone.

However, both teams went into an unpredictable derby game where traditionally form counts for nothing, knowing that Liverpool hadn’t kept a clean sheet in 13 matches. The Reds are also well known to play an attacking game of football and they are a team that gets a lot of goals. Because of league form, for Liverpool just to beat Everton, the odds would have been too short to extract any real value so either a Both Teams To Score (BTTS) bet or a Over/Under bet would be worth looking into.

Research wise, we knew before the match that Everton’s manager was under pressure to get a result or lose his job, while Liverpool were going to be without the suspended first choice goalkeeper and injured defensive midfielder. This then, made it a great match for an Over Under wager.

Sure enough, any over 3.5 bet would have paid out after 31 minutes when Liverpool went 3-1 up. The match ended 5-2 but that first half would turn out to be the highest scoring half in Merseyside derby history so it would have been great for either a over 3.5 goals in the match bet or just the first half.

The point being a little research goes a long way.

Over 3.5 Goals Betting Predictions and Tips

When you want to bet on Over Under 3.5 goals it is always worth remembering that for the majority of the time you will be wagering on the outsiders. For the most part, you will get bigger value odds for betting on over 3.5 as compared to under 3.5. You can also get better odds by splitting the bet and wagering on over under 3.5 goals in the first or second half as opposed to the entire match.

As with the example above, there was always a strong likelihood that the game was going to have plenty of goals in it due to the way that both of the teams play and the selection issues that Liverpool faced with their defensive midfielder and goalkeeper.

When you are looking to make a bet like this, look for influencing factors such as these, as well as defensively weak or offensively strong sides, to help you pick the right matches to wager on. Then, when you have got very good at it, consider building up your bets by putting them into a high paying accumulator.
