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

Bayern München - Borussia Dortmund

With the 1.67 being what they are, we don’t expect anything other than a home win. Pulling off anything else would be a gargantuan task for Borussia Dortmund, so we’d stay away unless you’re looking for a long shot on purpose.

This one has Home Win written all over it. The hosts are expected to grab a firm hold of the proceedings and Borussia Dortmund will be left with slim pickings in this match.

It’s hard to argue against the effectiveness of Bayern München on their ... read more

Feyenoord - VVV-Venlo

Feyenoord are seen as favourites to win this match against VVV-Venlo. The betting odds indicate an easy win and anything but a home victory here would indeed be a big surprise.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. VVV-Venlo stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 8.40, marking an insurmountable difference.

Feyenoord managed to hold the line against AZ Alkmaar throughout the ... read more

Zenit - Rostov

With the odds set at 1.42 for a home win, Zenit winning is clearly the most likely outcome in this matchup. Bigger upsets have happened, of course, but we wouldn’t expect anything but a decisive home win.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Rostov are given 8.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Zenit displayed rather me... read more

Borussia Dortmund - Arminia Bielefeld

Borussia Dortmund have been installed as firm favourites by the best online bookmakers and anything but a home win in this match would be considered a huge upset.

Considering what they’re up against, Arminia Bielefeld can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 17.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Last round saw Borussia D. take an early lead against Schalke 04 and maintain the momentum up until tha... read more

Lokomotiv Moskva - CSKA Moskva

Lokomotiv Moskva have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 3.20 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

CSKA Moskva will need to bring their top form if they want 3 points from this matchup – and they do. Lokomotiv Moskva are not easy pickings, although the visitors are widely seen as close favourites.

It’s hard to make reliable claims about the form of Lokomotiv Moskva purely based on the previous roun... read more

Vitesse - VVV-Venlo

This is a fairly one-sided matchup in the hosts’ favour. While there may be a tiny chance of a draw or even an upset, we wouldn’t count on it. Vitesse winning is by far the most likely outcome.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact VVV-Venlo are given 7.50 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Vitesse took an unexpected lead... read more

Barcelona - Cádiz

No matter how you look at it, the outcome of this matchup isn’t much of a toss-up in terms of betting predictions. Barcelona are very hard favourites, and it would take a miracle for Cádiz to manage an upset.

Cádiz are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Blaugrana.

Meeting Barca in their home in Camp Nou cannot be easy. Last round, they walked away with a convincing 5:1 victory against Deportivo Alavés and three addi... read more

Eintracht Frankfurt - Bayern München

Eintracht Frankfurt are no strangers to surprises but with 4.50 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

We are most likely going to see this match being won by Bayern München. They have a solid advantage over their opponents – at least according to the betting odds. That said, we’ve definitely seen much bigger surprises in the Bundesliga but such a scenario is not entirely likely in this fixture.

Eintracht displayed rather mediocre ... read more

Wattens - St. Pölten

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.80 bring great value considering the fact that Wattens are indeed firm favourites to defeat St. Pölten.

At 4.20 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive St. Pölten are well aware of it themselves.

Wattens went into their previous Tipico Bundesliga home match against Salzburg as clear underdogs, so the 2:4 loss didn’t catch anyone as a surprise. ... read more

Liverpool - Everton

Liverpool are firm favourites in this matchup, and backing them may offer surprising betting value. It’s a very safe bet, though we suppose an upset is not outside the realm of possibility. We wouldn’t count on Everton winning, though.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Everton stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 6.75, marking an insurmountable difference.

Betting tip (stake5/10): Over 3,5 goals 3.35 at 10Bet
Correct score prediction: 2:2
Match result: 2-0

15/02/2021

Cádiz - Athletic Bilbao

Cádiz managing to pull off a victory here would be quite the upset. They are definitely underdogs, so even the home-field advantage isn’t able to push the odds lower than 4.00 for a home win.

Athletic Bilbao will need to bring their top form if they want 3 points from this matchup – and they do. Cádiz are not easy pickings, although the visitors are widely seen as close favourites.

Although Cádiz are coming on the back of a harsh 4:1 loss, it would be rather unfair to j... read more

Standard Liège - OH Leuven

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.67 is a solid option. That said, OH Leuven may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact OH Leuven are given 5.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Konyaspor - Gençlerbirliği

A quick look at the betting odds with some of the biggest bookmakers online is enough to tell you who the favourites are. Priced at 1.80, a home win seems the obvious choice. An upset is not quite impossible, mind you, which adds a small degree of risk but is ultimately food increasing profits.

The odds are stacked heavily against Gençlerbirliği here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Konyaspor are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away b... read more

Willem II - FC Emmen

Willem II are easily the favourites in the match this Sunday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.03 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but FC Emmen may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

FC Emmen appear severely unprepared for a clash with Willem II, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 3.60 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Willem II are coming off from a crushing 3... read more

Austria Wien - Wattens

Wattens will give Austria Wien a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.30 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating Austria Wien is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Wattens.

Austria Wien pulled an impressive 0:4 in their previous Tipico Bundesliga match against Admira . The first half was much close... read more

Montpellier - Lens

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.88. Montpellier will indeed find it very hard to beat Lens here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Things are looking problematic for the visiting side. They are going up against a stronger team which also has a home pitch advantage. Victory is still within reach – they’ll just have to work harder than usual to get it.

Montpellier’s previous Ligue 1 match did n... read more

Bayern München - Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim will have little to hope for against Bayern München. The home charges are bursting with confidence and it would take a small miracle for the away team to take anything from this game.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Hoffenheim are given 13.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

The Bavarians are coming off the... read more

Yeni Malatyaspor - Fatih Karagümrük

Though we can call Yeni Malatyaspor the favourites in this matchup, Fatih Karagümrük are not about to make it easy for them. It’s gearing up to be an exciting match overall, and no outcome can be ruled out at this point.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, Fatih Karagümrük 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.

St. Pölten will have little to hope for against Rapid Wien. The home charges are bursting with confidence and it would take a small miracle for the away team to take anything from this game.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact St. Pölten are given 7.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Salzburg - Ried

With betting odds working largely in their favour, Salzburg are expected to record a clean-cut victory in this match. We expected them to completely outclass Ried.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Ried are given 34.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Wattens - Rheindorf Altach

We don’t expect Wattens to have any issues beating Rheindorf Altach. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.75 might actually be a good-value bet to consider. The visitors are not to be underestimated but on this particular instance the home side are seen as clear winners.

An away win in this match would be a huge surprise and an equally big achievement for Rheindorf Altach who could consider themselves fortunate if they run away with a point in the bag... read more

Genk are seen as favourites to win this match against Zulte-Waregem. The betting odds indicate an easy win and anything but a home victory here would indeed be a big surprise.

Zulte-Waregem are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Genk.

Genk went into their previous Pro League match against Club Brugge as clear underdogs: they played as visitors at the betting odds of 7.00. As such, the fact that they were in the lead at ha... read more

Wolfsberger AC - LASK Linz

Wolfsberger AC are no strangers to surprises but with 3.90 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

If everything goes according to plan and LASK Linz put their best foot forward we expect to see an away win in this match.

The fans at Lavanttal Arena were treated to a fruitless effort the last time Wolfsberger AC hosted a match against Hartberg . Both halves of the game ended in draws, prompting some to raise questions about their ability ... read more

West Bromwich Albion - Manchester City

West Bromwich Albion are the definition of underdogs in this fixture. With betting odds of 16.50, no punter will dare backing them up against Manchester City. It is a wise decision as well as hosts will have an extremely difficult task surviving this clash.

WBA’s latest performance against West Ham United ended in a narrow 2:1 defeat for them. Top betting predictions overwhelmingly agreed that the match wouldn’t go their way, considering the very difficult matchup and home-field di... read more

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Sturm Graz are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Hartberg and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.55.

This one has Home Win written all over it. The hosts are expected to grab a firm hold of the proceedings and Hartberg will be left with slim pickings in this match.

A home win would be a big surprise in this match. Yeni Malatyaspor are the underdogs here and it will be a huge surprise if they end up grabbing a win here.

If everything goes according to plan and Galatasaray put their best foot forward we expect to see an away win in this match.

Yeni Malatyaspor are coming on the back of great success in their latest away game. Despite all the odds, they grabbed an early lead against Hatayspor and turned it into a surprise 1:2 victory.

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.70. Fatih Karagümrük will indeed find it very hard to beat Fatih Karagümrük here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Fatih Karagümrük will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 2.60 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.62 bring great value considering the fact that FC Twente are indeed firm favourites to defeat VVV-Venlo.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact VVV-Venlo are given 5.75 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Upsets do happen in football and it’s fair to say a home win here would be a definition of the case. Rheindorf Altach can count themselves lucky if they avoid getting completely destroyed by Salzburg in this match.

1.22 on away win might not sound too much but that’s what you get in a game where Salzburg are seen as absolute favourites to beat Rheindorf Altach. Away matches are always taken with a pinch of salt but anything other than a sweet victory for the visitors would be a fir... read more

1.40 on away win might not sound too much but that’s what you get in a game where Blaugrana are seen as absolute favourites to beat Elche. Away matches are always taken with a pinch of salt but anything other than a sweet victory for the visitors would be a first-class surprise.

Antalyaspor will have little to hope for in this match. 3.90 betting odds on them winning paint a pretty clear picture and from this standpoint there is little doubt in regard to the outcome of this clash.

Having a 1.80 selection on your slip can be a big boost to your potential winnings and with Trabzonspor largely expected to beat Gençlerbirliği, you’d be wise to use it.

Udinese are no strangers to surprises but with 4.60 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

If everything goes according to plan and Atalanta put their best foot forward we expect to see an away win in this match.

,Udinese’s latest performance in the Serie A left most fans with a sour taste in their mouths. The entire match against Sampdoria was rather lukewarm and ended in a 2:1 win for the opposing home team.

Göztepe - Gençlerbirliği

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Göztepe are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Gençlerbirliği and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.91.

An away win in this match would be a huge surprise and an equally big achievement for Gençlerbirliği who could consider themselves fortunate if they run away with a point in the bag.

Benfica - Tondela

Benfica have been installed as firm favourites by the best online bookmakers and anything but a home win in this match would be considered a huge upset.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Tondela are given 19.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

More about 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.

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!
