Over 3,5 Goals Predictions

    Football betting has never had a shortage of different markets. Top online bookmakers offer sometimes more than 300 different things to bet on for select events. However, knowing how to use football betting markets – and, more importantly, how to use them effectively – takes a lot of know-how.

    That is why Betting Fellow is here to help. We’ll break down different markets so you can get started with Over 3.5 betting even if you’re a complete beginner.

    A small disclaimer, though: in a lot of ways, Over 3.5 betting is very similar to the Over 2.5 market, as you might have guessed. Honestly, it’s more of a variation on Over 2.5 than anything else.

    With that in mind, a lot of our Over 3.5 betting advice will be very similar to what we wrote over on Betting Fellow’s Over 2.5 betting guide. However, we will try to analyse how to shifted lines affect the thought process and betting strategies. As such, we recommend you get familiar with both of these articles to get the most complete picture.

    With that out of the way, let’s get right into our Over 3.5 betting guide.

The latest Over 3,5 Goals predictions

Bochum - Hoffenheim

The visiting team knows the task they face will not be easy. Beating Bochum on their own turf would be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

Hoffenheim are regarded as favourites, but that doesn’t mean they can relax. With an almost negligible difference in the perceived strength of these two teams, sub-standard play is a recipe for disaster.

Bochum are coming on the back of a crushing 5:2 away defeat at the hands of Mainz 05 . The odds were against... read more

Kasımpaşa - Giresunspor

Kasımpaşa should not have bigger problems running away with three points in this match if they stick to their game plan. However, Giresunspor can be a tough nut to crack and the home side need to be on top of their game.

The visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 3.60 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

Alanyaspor - Sivasspor

Alanyaspor might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as Sivasspor are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

It’s highly unlikely that Sivasspor will manage to get some points this round. Alanyaspor are at a considerable advantage, so even a draw would be a success for the visitors.

Dundee United - Celtic

A mere glance at the betting odds for this match should tell you most you need to know. A home win here is almost an impossible outcome, so it’s not very likely we’ll see solid betting opportunities in the 1X2 market.

Celtic fans are expecting a straightforward victory this Sunday, and who can blame them. With odds like the currently offered 1.23 for an away win, the home-field disadvantage doesn’t seem like a big obstacle in this case.

Dundee United showed some characte... read more

Hatayspor - Trabzonspor

While Hatayspor winning is still technically possible, we wouldn’t hold our breath. They are severely outmatched compared to Trabzonspor, so even a draw result would be quite surprising.

Having a 1.79 selection on your slip can be a big boost to your potential winnings and with Trabzonspor largely expected to beat Hatayspor, you’d be wise to use it.

Hoffenheim - Borussia M'gladbach

The online bookies marked Hoffenheim as the favourites, which makes a lot of sense. Still, we wouldn’t put Borussia M'gladbach winning beyond them – not to mention that draws are a strong possibility in relatively balanced games.

The visiting team knows that beating Hoffenheim on their own turf will be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

Despite the fact they played at home and were deemed the favourites by most bookmakers online, Hoffenheim rec... read more

Hertha BSC - Union Berlin

The visiting team knows the task they face will not be easy. Beating Hertha BSC on their own turf would be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

No outcome of this match would catch us by surprise. It’s a rarely fair matchup, though that’s not always good for betting. Currently, though, Union Berlin are somewhat more likely to triumph with betting odds of 2.25 on them winning.

Hertha’s defeat in their previous home game was painful, but it can... read more

Hibernian - Aberdeen

With bookies pricing a home win at 2.11, it’s clear the match may yet go either way. The hosts have a distinct advantage, of course, but both a draw and an away win are quite possible outcomes.

The visitors are conscious of the challenge before them. To come out on top against Hibernian on their home field would be a noteworthy accomplishment, and it is never an easy task.

Werder Bremen - Union Berlin

Werder Bremen have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 2.85 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

The visiting team knows that beating Team from Bremen on their own turf will be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

Alanyaspor - Fatih Karagümrük

Alanyaspor should not have bigger problems running away with three points in this match if they stick to their game plan. However, Fatih Karagümrük can be a tough nut to crack and the home side need to be on top of their game.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Fatih Karagümrük seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.70, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

RB Leipzig - Bayern München

RB Leipzig will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by Bayern München, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 4.00.

Though The Bavarians are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 1.88 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

Brighton & Hove Albion - Liverpool

Brighton & Hove Albion are no strangers to surprises but with 3.50 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

With a price of 2.10 on them winning, Liverpool should definitely feel more confident going into this match. Of course, the difference is not insurmountable, so we’d say a draw is quite likely as well.

The hosts are here after completely dominating Everton in their most recent away game. Although the odds were in their favour from... read more

Alanyaspor - Trabzonspor

Beating Trabzonspor will not be easy, but we believe Alanyaspor are more than capable of doing so. The matchup is somewhat balanced, after all, so all three possible outcomes are still on the table.

Trabzonspor have their work cut out for them this Monday. Most bookmakers online see them as the stronger team, made evident by the 2.20 betting odds for an away win. That’s a fairly slim advantage, though.

Fatih Karagümrük - Konyaspor

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Fatih Karagümrük will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Konyaspor.

The visitors are not walking into an easy match by any means, but they should be able to come out on top. Winning this match will be a welcome boost to their rankings, though such an outcome is priced at 2.50.

Genk - Club Brugge

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Club Brugge are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Genk should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, Club Brugge would need to play their best to have a hope of winning. That said, even a draw would be a positive outcome, and all three results are quite possible.

NEC - Ajax

A home win is not something we would recommend betting on at the odds of 8.10 – but you’re probably aware of that already. It would take a miracle for NEC to pull off even a draw, let alone a win as underdogs.

Taking a 1.38 bet on an away game can often be risky but when it comes to Ajax ahead of their trip to NEC, this match can be a great addition to your betting slip.

Most Eredivisie betting predictions saw NEC’s victory in the previous round coming. However, the 6:1 g... read more

Ümraniyespor - Hatayspor

Ümraniyespor are definitely more likely to win, though all three possible results are quite reasonable to expect. This makes it hard to make reliable betting predictions when this match is concerned, though we may find some betting value.

Hatayspor are heading into a difficult fight, but it’s far from hopeless. They may need to bring their best, but the match can go any way at this point. The odds of an away win are 3.10 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear. read more

Kilmarnock - St. Mirren

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.80. Kilmarnock will indeed find it very hard to beat St. Mirren here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

The 2.60 away win betting odds indicate that St. Mirren are the underdogs of this matchup. The difference is not huge, though, so both a victory for the visitors and are draw are still on the table.

Dundee United are not a team that backs down from a challenge and we expect them to give their best in an effort to claim a victory in this match.

What Is Over 3.5 Goals Betting?

As mentioned previously, the Over 3.5 market is the same as Over 2.5, except there’s a higher line of how many goals a match needs for the bet to win. However, in case you’re not familiar with Over/Under markets at all, we’ll start by explaining what Over 3.5 Goals means in betting.

For this type of bet, you’re essentially predicting that the total number of goals scored in a football match will be 4 or more. This total score is the only thing that should interest you with an Over 3.5 bet. Importantly, it does not matter which team scored them, which team won (or if it ended in a draw) or how and when the goals were scored. If the numbers on the scoreboard at the end of a match add up to 4 or more, you’ve won the bet.

Alternatively, you could bet on the final score being lower than 4. However, this is a separate market called Under 3.5 Goals. This market has it’s own article so we won’t talk about it too much here – however, there are obvious parallels between the two. For example, most of the betting tips we provide here can just be applied in reverse.

For now, though, let’s address the number 3.5. It seems strange at first glance because you cannot score half a goal in football. And, as we’ve mentioned, the actual number of goals you need for a winning Over 3.5 bet is 4. There’s a very practical idea about this: the half-point was done to avoid any confusion. If it were called Over 3 Goals, for example, one could easily misinterpret what happens if exactly 3 goals are scored. This way, you can always be sure whether your bet won or not – and the same goes for your bookie.

Also, you’ll notice we only mentioned football betting so far. This market was specifically made for football’s scoring system. After all, betting that there will be more than 3 points in a basketball match wouldn’t be too exciting, right? There are similar Over X markets for other sports, and they all adhere to the same principles. However, for this article, we’ll stick to football.

Why Bet on Over 3.5 Goals?

As you might have guessed, Over 3.5 is not a market you should bet on just every match. Not a lot of football matches end with this many goals, so the bet seems like a long shot. However, there are very good reasons why people bet on them, and we’ll go through some of them.

First, let’s go through some Over 3.5 Goals bet advantages.

  • One of the main reasons punters opt for over 3.5 is the long odds. Statistically, the chances of a match confirming Over 3.5 are not great. This is reflected in the great returns you’ll get if you do manage to predict correctly.
  • To make matters a little better, this market has a distinct advantage of having a binary result. What does this mean, exactly? Well, an Over 3.5 bet can only win or lose. That means that the statistical chances for your bet winning are 50%. Of course, it’s rarely that high because of the actual odds of the bey and the implied probabilities. However, compare this to a classic 1X2 bet.
  • At its heart, this type of bet has a 33% chance of winning because there is always a chance of a draw. Smart betting is all about statistics, so you shouldn’t overlook this fact.
  • Another advantage is that Over 3.5 bets have a chance of winning until the very end. Again, let's compare this to a 1X2 bet. If your team is losing by 2 points on half-time, you can't still hope to win in the end. However, there is always a chance of one of the teams scoring some more. An Over 3.5 bet is not over until the match is over.
  • Furthermore, there is a chance of the opposite happening. If 4 goals are scored before the match is over, you can relax knowing that there is no way for your bet to fail anymore. This is a nice change compared to most other markets for which things can theoretically be turned around at any point.

Of course, there are also some down-sides to consider. Here are some Over 3.5 goals disadvantages.

  • We’ve mentioned it a few times now, but this can’t be stressed enough: Over 3.5 is far from a safe bet. If we don’t take into account low-tier leagues and outlying teams, a very small percentage of matches end with this many goals.
  • Figuring out a good Over 3.5 prediction takes a lot of work. Just a glance at the stats is not enough – you’ll have to be prepared to dig through a lot of relevant information.
  • Considering the nature of this betting type, they should not be used as anything other than singles. An Over 3.5 Accumulator or multiple is a terrible idea.

How to Bet on Over 3.5 Goals?

There’s not a lot of nuance to how an Over 3.5 Goals bet is placed. As we mentioned earlier, this bet can only win or fail, there aren’t any additional options. As such, if you want to bet on Over 3.5 Goals – just add the bet to your slip, confirm it, and you’re done.

The only thing’s we would add is that you should carefully consider Over 2.5 Goals vs Over 3.5 Goals. Essentially, placing this bet is not a choice between several options – it’s a choice which market you want to be on in the first place. With that in mind, weigh your options carefully. Maybe an Under market would be better for the current situation, for example.

Our point is that you need to be careful about when, why, and how you’re placing an Over 3.5 bet. Which brings us to our next topic.

How to Choose Matches to Bet on Over 3.5 Goals?

Now we’ll further elaborate on what we meant when we said this market requires a lot of research.

Luckily, the information relevant for Over 3.5 is shared with several other markets – not only Over 2.5 and Over 1.5 but also Both Teams to Score.

The first thing you want to look for are, as always, the teams. You’re looking for teams that score often, but whose defence has some issues. In contrast to Over 2.5, you’ll want to push this idea as far as you can. For instance, you’ll want both teams to tick these boxes.

Now you might be wondering – but if it doesn’t matter who scored the goals, why do you need two such teams? Well, for starters, that doubles the chances of the teams scoring or conceding goals. And in a long-odds bet such as Over 3.5, you want to press every advantage.

Furthermore, two such teams lessen the unpredictability of such matches. Every team has good days and bad days. You can’t predict this reliably – but one team’s goal-getters having an off day is significantly more likely than two teams’. If you also take into account that they are playing each other and how this might affect morale, it should be easy to understand our reasoning.

To that end, try to figure out team strategies as well as the statistics. You want aggressive teams, which usually means aggressive formations and a heavy focus on acquiring the best attackers, ideally to the detriment of their defensive line.

Furthermore, records show us that the best teams for Over 3.5 betting rarely come from top-tier or international leagues. You’ll want to look for smaller and lower-profile matches. For example, the best League for Over 3.5 betting in Germany is the Oberliga Bremen. This is the fifth-tier league of the German football league system, one of fourteen of its kind. Like we said: low profile.

As a bonus, such leagues are also great places to hunt for value bets. This fact, combined with the relatively low popularity of this market, means that Over 3.5 value betting is a completely viable approach.

Where to bet on Over 3.5 Goals?

Of course, finding a betting site which even features these minor matches is not that easy – not to mention if you also want decent odds. Picking the best online bookmaker you can has always been important, but we feel that this goes double if Over 3.5 Goals is a market you’re interested in.

If you want to find a betting site to suit your needs, Betting Fellow can help you with that as well. We recommend checking out our best betting sites list, as well as the numerous bookmaker ratings and reviews you can find throughout our website.

For now, we’ll list some of the best online bookmakers for Over 3.5 betting to help get you started.

Coral

This is one of the most famous names in the sports betting industry, and an easy choice no matter what you’re looking for. However, variety is one of their greatest strengths.

Unibet

Although we can hardly consider this bookie an industry giant, they are still noted for attempting to cater to as many people as possible. This means a lot of different leagues from all over the world.

Betfair

The fact that, as we said previously, Over 3.5 bets are not over until the very end, makes them somewhat interesting for bet trading. Betfair, being the world’s biggest betting exchange, is ideal for that.

Over 3.5 Goals Betting Tips

Now, let’s go over some additional bits of advice that might help you make a good Over 3.5 betting predictions.

For starters, here are some statistics you might want to look up:
  • The average number of goals the two teams made throughout the season.
  • The percentage of games in which the teams confirmed the Over 3.5 market. Looking up the same for Over 2.5 might be useful as well
  • Head-to head stats. For instance, some teams have issues playing against the offensive tactics of another team in the league. These types of weaknesses are what you’re looking to exploit. Ideally, this will be with an otherwise strong team. Such an Over 3.5 Goals opportunity can provide great returns.

Beyond that, we also have some Over 3.5 betting advice which doesn't fit in our previous sections.

Advanced:
  • Keep up with team histories and news. You don’t want to end up placing an Over 3.5 Goals bet on a match where the main offensive players are injured.
  • Pay attention to the match context. The more important a match is – the more likely a team is to give their best and score often.
  • Look up details such as weather and turf conditions. Again, this is a hard type of bet, and you want every advantage you can get.

Over 3.5 Goals Betting Variations

In addition to Over/under 1.5 and 2.5, there are some other markets which include Over 3.5 and are regularly featured with top betting sites.

  • Home/Away Win and Over 3.5. This is a combination of a 1X2 bet and an Over 3.5 bet. You need to win both parts if you want a return.
  • Over/Under 3.5 and Both Teams to Score. You’re betting that not only will there be more than 4 goals, but that neither team will finish with a score of 0.

Over 3.5 Goals Verdict

So there you have it, that’s pretty much all you need to know about Over 3.5 Goals betting, and then some. We can all agree that this is not a particularly beginner-friendly market and that it carries a lot of risks. But then again, all sports betting does, and it’s up to the punter to manage that risk.

However, having at least some basic knowledge about all the possible options is always a good idea. Over 3.5 is not a type of bet you’ll be making every single day – but when a good opportunity presents itself, a perceptive, patient bettor can profit greatly. So – have patience, keep learning, and good luck!
