How Does Over/Under Prediction Work?

Over/Under bets are among the most popular betting markets, especially in football. The bets are based on the total number of goals in a 90 minutes match, plus stoppage time (extra-time and penalties don’t count). These betting predictions markets have varying odds depending on the probability of the event.

Over-Under Predictions

Over and Under Prediction Meaning

Over-Under predictions act like a bet where a betting site predicts a number for a statistic in a specific game, and this is usually the combined score of two teams. As a bettor, you will be required to place a wager on whether the game’s actual outcome will be higher (over) or lower (under).

For example;

A sportsbook predicts that the total number of goals between Chelsea and Liverpool will be 2.5.

In this case, your job is to decide if over 2.5 goals predictions for today will likely win or if it’s better to wager on under 2.5.

But what does 2.5 stand for? We will discuss this and the overall over and under prediction meaning in the section below. First, you need to know the various Over-Under predictions bets. They include:

  • Over/Under 0.5 goals
  • Over/Under 1.5 goals
  • Over/Under 2.5 goals
  • Over/Under 3.5 goals
  • Over/Under 4.5 goals
  • Over/Under 5.5 goals

Over/Under 0.5 Predictions

This is an excellent option if you are a beginner and are looking to build football accumulators. Compared to other Over-Under predictions, these bets have low odds and a high likelihood of success. With highly competitive teams in major football leagues, over under predictions soccer bets can be hard to guess the outcome. However, an over 0.5 goals bet has a better likelihood of winning.

Winning over 0.5 goals bet– At least one goal

Winning under 0.5 bet- No goal

Over/Under 1.5 Predictions

With this bet, you will be predicting if the match will or will not end with at least 2 goals. This is a popular betting market for over under predictions soccer bettors since almost 70% of matches finish this way. Additionally, over 1.5 goals are more appealing to Kenyan punters as they are active for the full game. On the other hand, under 1.5 goals bet can lose any time, and this will destroy your accumulator.

Winning over 1.5 goals bet- 2 goals or more

Winning under 1.5 goals bet- Less than 2 goals

Over/Under 2.5 Predictions

There is a very thin line between difficulty and the reward for Over/Under 2.5 bets. This is a preferable bet option for seasoned players due to the competitive odds and high value. Here, under 2.5 predictions bets means that you believe that the match will end with 2 or fewer goals. An over 2.5 predictions bet wins if there are 3 or more goals.

Winning over 2.5 goals bet- 3 goals or more

Winning under 2.5 goals bet- 2 goals or less

Over/Under 3.5 Predictions

The average number of goals expected in a game, especially in major leagues, is between 2.5 and 3. Over/under 3.5 goal markets lie just above this average which could explain why the odds of under 3.5 goals bets are low. On the other end, over 3.5 goals predictions are rare but profitable when you land one.

Winning over 3.5 goals predictions- 4 goals or more

Winning under 3.5 goals predictions- 3 goals or less

Over/Under 4.5 Predictions

Under 4.5 bets are considered ‘safebet’ since most matches end in less than 5 goals. Thus, such wagers have considerably low odds. However, over 4.5 goals offer generous odds.

Winning over 4.5 goals predictions- 5 goals or more

Winning under 4.5 goals predictions- 4 goals or less

Over/Under 5.5 Predictions

The fact that most matches end with under 5.5 goals make this market highly skewed. Betting under means parting with very low odds while backing overs means you are looking for plenty of goals.

Winning over 5.5 bets – 6 or more

Winning under 5.5 bets – 5 or less
