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.

Inter - Juventus

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

Juventus will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.50 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Bayern München - Hoffenheim

The betting odds alone should tell you enough about which side is going to win this showdown. With a home win priced at 1.20, Bayern München are almost guaranteed to come out on top – probably with a notable goal margin as well.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Hoffenheim stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 17.00, marking an insurmountable difference.

Admira - Wattens

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

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.

Sampdoria - Spezia

We don’t expect Sampdoria to have any issues beating Spezia. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.73 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.

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

Vejle - Nordsjælland

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Vejle 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 Nordsjælland.

Though it won’t be the easiest match of their careers, Nordsjælland should be able to pull ahead for a victory. Most online bookmakers are pricing an away win at 2.12, which gives us confidence it’s the most likely outcome.

AZ Alkmaar - FC Utrecht

Though AZ Alkmaar are more likely to win this, an away win would only be slightly surprising. It’s a relatively balanced matchup, which usually means we’ll see some exciting football.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, FC Utrecht 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.

Cagliari - Sampdoria

Though the match can honestly go either way, Cagliari will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 2.75 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

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

Wattens - Hartberg

Wattens are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Hartberg. The odds of 2.40 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Hartberg are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

Altay - Fatih Karagümrük

Altay 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 away team’s chances of winning this Sunday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a matchup with Altay, and the fact that they’re the visiting team isn’t making things any easier.

Bayer Leverkusen - Bayern München

There is a big reason why Bayer Leverkusen are given 5.00 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Bayern München and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

If you’re just looking for a simple 1X2 football bet, we suggest backing the away team in this match. The Bavarians are clearly more likely to win this matchup, though Bayer Leverkusen are more than able to put up a good fight.

Fortuna Sittard - SC Cambuur

Fortuna Sittard have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 2.55 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, SC Cambuur 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.

Lazio - Inter

Lazio will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Inter don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 3.40 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

2.25 on an away match is what many punters run away from but Inter are a team capable of big things. Therefore, backing them in this match might not be a bad idea after all.

Lazio are coming off of a harsh 3:0 defeat in their previous away game. Most betting predict... read more

SC Cambuur - AZ Alkmaar

The 4.20 odds on a home win result mark the hosts as clear underdogs. Things are fairly lopsided, in fact, so backing such an outcome would be quite a longshot.

Details can make a big difference in matches like this one. One way for AZ Alkmaar to reach their goal in this game is to stick firmly to their game plan and execute it flawlessly.

SC Cambuur have a lot of reasons to be proud of their previous Eredivisie performance. Their opponents Sparta Rotterdam were hard favourite... read more

Hellas Verona - Spezia

The odds are definitely leaning in the hosts’ favour, but this match is far from a done deal. Judging by odds alone, Spezia may yet be able to walk away with a draw or even a surprise victory – though it’s still a longshot.

It’s hard to believe even the most optimistic Spezia fans are expecting them to triumph at Hellas Verona this Sunday. It’s a completely one-sided matchup, and the hosts should have no problems steamrolling their opponents.

Mjøndalen - Brann

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Mjøndalen 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 Brann.

While Brann may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 2.63 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Odd - Molde

It’s hard to see even the most ardent of Odd fans expect a victory here. As clear underdogs, even a draw against Molde would be quite impressive, let alone an upset in the form of a home win.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Molde have a better chance of winning this clash than their opponents. They can’t afford to relax just yet though – the hosts may prove a tough nut to crack after all.

Odd had their work cut out for them in the previous round – they ... read more

Though the match can honestly go either way, Kristiansund will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 2.65 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

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

Ajax - FC Utrecht

FC Utrecht will have little to hope for against Ajax. 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 FC Utrecht are given 15.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Though the match can honestly go either way, Bologna will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 3.40 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Lazio have a better chance of winning this clash than their opponents. They can’t afford to relax just yet though – the hosts may prove a tough nut to crack after all.

Salernitana have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 3.10 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

Genoa have their work cut out for them this Saturday. Most bookmakers online see them as the stronger team, made evident by the 2.50 betting odds for an away win. That’s a fairly slim advantage, though.

Stuttgart may come out on top this Saturday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Hoffenheim. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 2.70 for the hosts to win.

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

Osasuna - Rayo Vallecano

Though Osasuna are the favourites between these two teams, this is a fairly balanced matchup. All three possible outcomes of a Result bet are quite possible, which at least means we may get to see an exciting game.

While Rayo Vallecano may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.30 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

With the odds slightly in the hosts’ favour, they have a decent shot at walking away with 3 points. Still, Adana Demirspor can pull off both a win or a draw, so the hosts can’t afford to let their guard down.

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

Best bookmaker online do not see past Napoli in this game and we wholeheartedly agree. The betting odds work largely in their favour and there is a good reason for it. Cagliari will have extremely difficult time running away with anything from this match.

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

Though the match can honestly go either way, Bochum will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 3.20 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

The match is most likely to go in the away team’s favour, though it’s by no means a sure thing. With 2.20 betting odds to win, Stuttgart have the upper hand going in, but all three possible outcomes are possible.

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

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Odd seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.60, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Molde are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Viking and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.62.

With a price of 5.25 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Viking will likely not fare well against Molde. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

The previous round for Molde was quite uneventful, all things considered. The away game at Vålerenga saw a draw on hal... read more

Sporting Charleroi are expected to win here, but we can’t call such betting predictions completely foolproof. Mechelen may surprise us yet, and even a tie game seems a decent possibility from where we’re standing.

Mechelen 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 3.40 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

Borussia M'gladbach will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by Borussia Dortmund, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 4.20.

With a price of 1.81 on them winning, Team from Dortmund 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.

OH Leuven are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Club Brugge.

With the 1.58 being what they are, we don’t expect anything other than a home win. Pulling off anything else would be a gargantuan task for Udinese, so we’d stay away unless you’re looking for a long shot on purpose.

With a price of 6.00 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Udinese will likely not fare well against Roma. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

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

The Nerazzurri will have to maintain the high level of focus against La Viola. They can’t afford any mistakes and errors if they plan to run away home with three points in the bag.

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!
