Over 4.5 Goals Meaning

The over / under 4.5 goals bet is as simple as it sounds. All you need to do is predict if a match will have more or less than 5 total combined goals. There are many ways that this could happen. Here are a few examples to make it clearer.

  • Arsenal 3-2 Liverpool – The total score is 5 so if you bet over 4.5 goals, you’ll win the bet.
  • Newcastle 3-3 Manchester City – With a total of over 4.5 goals this will also result in a win if you bet on ‘over 4.5 goals’.
  • Marseille 1-2 Tottenham – This will count as a win for Under 4.5 Betting and a loss for Over 4.5 betting.
  • Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea – This is also a win for anyone who bet ‘Under 4.5 goals’.

An ‘Over 4.5 bet’ comes with some high odds due to the fact that not many games end in goal tallies higher than 4. Betting Under 4.5 tends to be more realistic, but this will be reflected in the lower odds given.

Finally, the bet only counts during the 90 minutes of football and stoppage time. The bet doesn’t include extra time and penalties.

What Is Asian Total Betting?

The Asian betting market is an interesting alternative to the regular over under bet. While it may seem complicated at first, it’s actually in a punter’s benefit and could save you a few bob if you bet doesn’t go according to plan.

Firstly, the Asian line uses whole numbers and not halves. So, in this case the bet will be over / under 4 goals. In a regular over 4.5 goals bet you’ll lose your stake if a match ends with 4 goals. In the Asian market, 4 goals counts as a void, ‘No Bet’, and your original stake will be refunded.

There are also .25 bets which work in a similar way. If you bet on over 4.25 and the score ends with a total of 4 goals, you receive half your stake. This higher risk is rewarded with better odds.

The Asian handicap market for over and under bets can be best explained using the below table, which shows you the possible outcomes when betting on the equivalent of an over/under 4.5 bet:

Over 4.5 Goals Tips

Betting on over and under 4.5 goals is a great bet for any punter. While the ‘Under 4.5 goals’ may be a safe option for any cautious punter, the ‘Over 4.5 goals’ is a much riskier and exciting bet to make. There are ways to make your bets safer, here’s our tips.

  • Pre-match research

    This is vital when placing any bet and is especially true for riskier bets such as this one. Making an informed decision is key. Are there any star players out injured? Is a team in dire need of a win? Or is a team resting starting players for a bigger match coming up? These are all things to consider and research when making pre match bets.

  • Use our stats

    Our stats pages are perfect when performing any betting research. With in-depth stats on an amazing variety of markets and 28 top leagues we definitely have your back for whatever you need.

    If you’re looking for some pre match predictions Kickform.com has got you covered. The predictor is available for the top 5 leagues and is another great research tool.

  • Look for wider trends

    Different leagues and countries tend to have different overall stats, depending on style of play, intensity, and number of games. As we saw in the table above, the Bundesliga has the highest ‘over 4.5 goals’ average. Looking at league wide stats will help you find value in the betting market.


Over 4.5 Goals Accumulators

Since the odds vary so wildly when betting on over or under bets, an accumulator can be a great way to really boost your odds. An Acca is a series of different bets clumped together to create 1 larger betslip with greater odds.

An over/under bet goes great in a combi-bet as it doesn’t require you to pick a winner, this allows a lot more leeway when creating betslips. If you’re still unsure how an acca works, you should check out our guide to accumulator betting.


Alternatives to Over/Under 4.5 Goals

If you don’t fancy betting on an over / under bet, there are many other great betting markets both in-play and pre-match to turn to! Here are a few of our top picks.

Both teams to score
One of the simplest forms of betting, all that needs to happen for a both teams to score bet to win is that both teams must score in a 90-minute match of football. The final score doesn’t affect the bet, a game could end 1-1 or 8-4, and as long as both teams score you’ll be a winner.

Alternatively, you can bet against BTTS which means one or both teams won’t score.

To win either half
The ‘to win either half’ bet stipulates that the team you bet on outscores their opponents in at least one half of football. The great thing about this is that your bet could be won by the end of the first half.
Cards & booking points
An increasingly popular betting market, predicting the number of bookings in a match is simple and exciting. There are many brilliant ways to find value in this betting market including our in-depth Cards & booking points stats page.

Bookies use booking points as another way of betting on cards, but it functions in almost the same way, using a tally of points depending on what and how many cards are shown.

Total corners
A slightly less mainstream bet, betting on corners may not seem so interesting, but there is a lot of value if you know were to look. This is another form of over / under bets where punters bet on the number of corners in a match.
