Under 3,5 Goals Predictions

    If you truly want to take your online sports betting to the next level, you have to understand that there is no such thing as a “bad” market. Betting selections can be bad in terms of value, but there is nothing wrong with any particular market. The Under 3.5 betting market is occasionally perceived as something you would want to avoid because it is not easy to figure out when it can be useful.

    We here at Betting Fellow believe that every market is a tool in a punter’s arsenal – and just like with regular tools, they are only as good as the person using them. With that in mind, we’ve made this Under 3.5 Goals betting guide.

    Before we get started, though, you should keep in mind that this market is, for all intents and purposes, a variation on the Under 2.5 Goals formula. 2.5 is the most common line for Over/Under in betting - the “standard” format if you will. As such, we recommend that you check out Betting Fellow’s Under 2.5 Goals page as well.

The latest Under 3,5 Goals predictions

Austria Wien - Rapid Wien

The hosts will have little to hope for in this match. The betting odds work against them and so does the overall impression. They are a weaker side here and it would be a proper upset if they manage to beat Rapid Wien.

Though Rapid Wien are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 2.00 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

Austria Wien performed beyond all expectations in their previous Tipico Bundesliga match again... read more

Osasuna - Barcelona

It would take a small miracle for the hosts to get to a stalemate this match, let alone win somehow. A quick look at the 6.00 price for a home win should be enough to tell you that, though.

Having a 1.56 selection on your slip can be a big boost to your potential winnings and with Barcelona largely expected to beat Osasuna, you’d be wise to use it.

Although most experts favoured Deportivo Alavés in the previous round, Osasuna came out on top in the end, after securing an imp... read more

Juventus - Spezia

With the odds set at 1.24 for a home win, Juventus 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.

Spezia stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 15.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

The previous round was quite uneventful for Juventus. Most of the game at Hellas Verona wa... read more

Bayer Leverkusen - Freiburg

With bookies pricing a home win at 1.92, 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.

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

Bayer Leverkusen are probably reasonably satisfied with the result of their previous Bundesliga match at Augs... read more

Napoli - Benevento

This match is somewhat one-sided, but not the most imbalanced clash we’ve seen. The odds are heavily in the hosts’ favour, who will likely walk away with 3 more points to the tally.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for Benevento, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 8.00.

Napoli’s most recent 4:2 defeat at the hands of Atalanta was easily predictable, ... read more

Leeds United - Aston Villa

The home team are slightly stronger as far as most online bookies are concerned, but the difference is by no means insurmountable. Both a stalemate and a victory for Aston Villa are still on the table.

Aston Villa will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.25 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

FC Twente - Feyenoord

The 3.75 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.

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

FC Twente’s latest away victory against Vitesse was a surprise to experts and bookies alike. Most sportsbooks priced an away win at 4.75 going in, but they managed to snag an early lead and a stun... read more

Waasland-Beveren - Sporting Charleroi

Waasland-Beveren 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 3.60 for a home win.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Sporting Charleroi 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.

Waasland-Beveren are coming off from a surp... read more

Chelsea - Newcastle United

Chelsea should stroll into a fairly easy victory this Monday. The odds are decidedly in their favour, with most top bookies pricing a home win at 1.31.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Newcastle United stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 13.00, marking an insurmountable difference.

The Blues are coming off from an away win in the last round. They grabbed an early le... read more

Wolfsberger AC - Admira

Most fans are expecting nothing short of a decisive victory for Wolfsberger AC. Though an upset is not impossible, it’s extremely unlikely that this match will end in anything that’s not a home win.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Admira will likely get overrun by their opponents with little hope of winning. Considering how one-sided this matchup is, they may want to cut their losses and focus their energy elsewhere.

Fatih Karagümrük - Fenerbahçe

Fatih Karagümrük are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Super Lig, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 4.00, it’s not very likely to happen.

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

Fatih Karagümrük are here on the back of an upturn victory in the previous round. They faced off against İstanbul Başak... read more

Atalanta - Torino

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. Atalanta winning is by far the most likely outcome.

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

Fans of Atalanta are hoping for a better performance than what we last saw from them against Lazio in Stadio Atleti Azz... read more

Bayer Leverkusen - Stuttgart

By pricing a home win at around 2.00, the bookies made it clear that Bayer Leverkusen are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

It would be a minor miracle for Stuttgart to win at Leverkusen, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 3.80 price on most online sportsbooks.

Celtic - Motherwell

Celtic are likely on their way to a decisive victory, and it’s hard to feel optimistic about the visitors’ prospects. Bookmakers are pricing a home win at 1.40, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

Considering what they’re up against, Motherwell can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 8.50 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Olympique Lyonnais - Strasbourg

It’s quite easy to predict that Olympique Lyonnais will take the 3 points here. Though a different result is not entirely impossible, it would still be quite a notable upset.

Considering what they’re up against, Strasbourg can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 7.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Olympique Lyonnais carved out a close victory during the previous round – but a victory noneth... read more

Leeds United - Everton

Leeds United 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.

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.

Dijon - Olympique Lyonnais

With most bookies pricing a home win at 9.50, this is one of the more lopsided matches of the season. Needless to say, Dijon don’t stand much of a chance at coming out on top.

Any Result bet in this match other than Away Win would be quite optimistic indeed. Olympique Lyonnais seem to be on their way to a relatively easy victory, though we suppose a major slip-up is not out of the question. Don’t count on it, though.

Dijon lost their previous away game, although the narrow... read more

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. Barcelona winning is by far the most likely outcome.

Athletic Bilbao stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of ODDS_AWAY_WIN for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

FC Twente - SC Heerenveen

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

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

Feyenoord - PSV

Feyenoord may come out on top this Sunday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in PSV. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 2.85 for the hosts to win.

PSV should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.43 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - Feyenoord are no pushovers.

Feyenoord suffered a crushing 3:0 defeat during the previous r... read more

Leicester City - Leeds United

Though we can call Leicester City the favourites in this matchup, Leeds United 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.

Leeds will have little to hope for in this match. 4.20 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.

Stuttgart - Mainz 05

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Stuttgart are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Mainz 05 and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.70.

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

Stuttgart quickly lost momentum in the previous round against Freiburg and went home empty-handed in terms of points towards the Bundesliga title. Despite fairly favourable predictions, ... read more

VVV-Venlo - Vitesse

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

The visiting side should be able to achieve victory in this clash against VVV-Venlo. Vitesse are favourites to claim three points and at 1.75 betting odds they are a good pick for any sensible punter.

AZ Alkmaar will give Feyenoord a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.45 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

AZ Alkmaar 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.

We don’t expect Napoli to have any issues beating Fiorentina. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.57 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 Fiorentina will be left with slim pickings in this match.

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

Crotone are the definition of underdogs in this fixture. With betting odds of 7.50, no punter will dare backing them up against Roma. It is a wise decision as well as hosts will have an extremely difficult task surviving this clash.

A trip to Crotone can hardly be seen as a big test for Roma. With 1.45 betting odds stacked in their favour, it’s hard seeing past anything other than a compelling away win here.

Leicester City will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Manchester United. The price of 3.10 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

A difficult match is ahead of The Red devils. They have a big fish to fry but we’ve seen them do it in the past and it’s certain they can do it again.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact SC Heerenveen are given 5.50 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

More about Under 3,5 Goals Predictions

    If you truly want to take your online sports betting to the next level, you have to understand that there is no such thing as a “bad” market. Betting selections can be bad in terms of value, but there is nothing wrong with any particular market. The Under 3.5 betting market is occasionally perceived as something you would want to avoid because it is not easy to figure out when it can be useful.

    We here at Betting Fellow believe that every market is a tool in a punter’s arsenal – and just like with regular tools, they are only as good as the person using them. With that in mind, we’ve made this Under 3.5 Goals betting guide.

    Before we get started, though, you should keep in mind that this market is, for all intents and purposes, a variation on the Under 2.5 Goals formula. 2.5 is the most common line for Over/Under in betting - the “standard” format if you will. As such, we recommend that you check out Betting Fellow’s Under 2.5 Goals page as well.

What Is Under 3.5 Goals Betting?

Defining our terms is the natural first step, so let’s take a look at what Under 3.5 Goals means in betting.

This market is all about correctly predicting the number of goals that will be scored throughout the match. With that, we mean all goals, made by both teams from start to finish. Essentially, as long as this total number of goals does not reach 4, the Under 3.5 Goals bet wins. The good part is that that’s all you’re interested in – you don’t even need to care about who wins.

Now, as mentioned previously, there are a lot of things that you can switch around when it comes to Over/Under football markets. For starters, if you wanted to bet that the number of goals in the match will be higher than 4, you could always simply make an Over 3.5 bet. However, that’s an entirely different market, and its ideals and goals are directly opposite to what we’re talking about in this article. So, if you want to make Over 3.5 bets, visit the page we just linked.

Beyond that, this line of “3.5” goals is adjustable. As we said, the “default” line is usually 2.5, but other options are available as well, such as 1.5 and, in rare cases, even 4.5 (although, this is usually reserved for very rare occasions such as in-play bets on matches which already have several points on the scoreboard).

So, why 3.5? That’ not an actual number of goals you could have in a real football match, right?

Well, yes. If we’re being honest, the “real” line you must not cross is 4, as noted above. The reason it is set to a 3.5 is to be clear about which score wins the bet, and which score loses. For instance, if it were named “Under 4”, people might not be clear about what happens if exactly 4 goals were made. This way, you can always be certain about your wager.

This scoreline is important for one more reason: it means this market is specific to football betting. There are Over/Under markets for other sports, but the lines are different.

Why Bet on Under 3.5 Goals?

The defining feature of this market is already probably clear to you – over 85% of professional football matches end up with fewer than 4 goals. That means that, except for extreme cases like those that can be found in lower-tier leagues, the Under 3.5 goals betting odds will be very short.

This, of course, has its pros and cons. On one hand, statistics and betting theory both support low-odds, “safe” bets. Given a long enough timespan, such bets are generally considered the best way for long-term profits with sports betting.

This idea has been tried and tested by time, but you shouldn’t get carried away with it. Simply put, there is a bottom line of odds you should not cross. For instance, if you were to bet on a 1.13 odds wager, you wouldn’t get any sort of return. And as likely as such a bet is to win, at this point you’re just risking your money for next to nothing. Remember that smart betting is all about risk management. Just like all bets, some have good value, others don’t. Don’t take a bet just because you can almost be sure it will win.

Beyond that, the Under 3.5 betting market has some characteristics you should be aware of before going any further. For starters, it is binary. There are only two possible results – the bet either wins or loses. As a contrast, 1X2 bets have 3 possible outcomes.

As a complete opposite to Over 3.5, the issue with this type of bet is that it can theoretically lose until the very end of the match. Sure, the closer the end is the less likely the teams are to score a notable number of additional goals. But it sometimes just feels good to sit back and relax knowing that your bet won before the game is even finished.

How to Bet on Under 3.5 Goals?

Considering your only options are to either make the bet or not, there aren’t a lot of things you need to be thinking about while making an Under 3.5 bet. Just find the selection you’re interested in, add it to your betting slip, and proceed as you would with any bet.

The trick here is not in making the bet itself, but in finding good Under 3.5 betting opportunities. In other words, it’s all about finding the right teams and the right event. We’ll go more into detail with this point in the following section.

For now, we’ll just point out that due to the simple calculations, low odds, and a lot of options (that is to say, a lot of football games are played every day) this market is suitable for multiples and accumulators. In fact, Under 3.5 Goals accumulators are a common strategy for putting this often-overlooked market to use.

How to Choose Matches to Bet on Under 3.5 Goals?

So, if finding the right selection is the main part of making a good Under 3.5 Goals bet, how would you be able to recognize one? Since you’re aiming for as few goals as possible, you want to find matches between teams with a strong defence. Ideally, though, you also want them to have problems when it comes to scoring as well. To find such teams, you can research several things.

  • Most importantly, take a look at how many goals they’ve scored each game on average. This statistic also has the biggest impact on the odds. Generally, you want recent information about matches from the same league you’re trying to bet. Additionally, you can look up head-to-head stats between two teams to get detailed insight into their playstyle and how it interacts with others’.
  • You can look up other stats, such as the percentage of games that have ended with a confirmed Over/Under 3.5 or even Over/Under 2.5 market.
  • Keep up with team news to find any (un)favourable changes in their lineup. For example, a team whose main goal-getter is injured or on the bench might present a good chance for an Under 3.5 bet. On the other hand, key defensive players might indicate that you should look elsewhere.
  • Pay attention to team strategies as well. For example, 4-4-2 is a common relatively defensive formation, as are any formations with 5 players at the backline.

Statistically, the best leagues for Under 3.5 Goals bets are top-tier South American league, a lot of second-tier European leagues and, interestingly enough, the English Premier League.

Looking at smaller leagues is a very common piece of betting advice for finding value. However, this has its limits. If the league is too obscure, you’ll have even more trouble finding reliable information than the bookmakers. At this point, predicting anything would come down to pure luck. From that standpoint, the leagues we just named (Excluding the Premier League) present a nice middle ground.

You’ll also want to look into how motivated the teams are. For once, you’re looking for teams who are not giving their best performance. Whether this is due to a lack of motivation, bad morale, or any other factor is irrelevant – as unintuitive as it might seem, you’re looking for boring matches.

Where to bet on Under 3.5 Goals?

The issue with following ur advice is that not every bookie gives the option of an Under 3.5 bet for every event. This is especially true considering we’re not exactly talking about the most popular events. That means you’ll need a top-rated betting site whose sportsbook includes niche and alternative markets. Choosing a good bookie is important for a multitude of reasons, so we suggest you check out Betting Fellow’s best betting sites page. There’s something for everyone there, whether you’re looking to make Under 3.5 Goals bets or not. To help you with your search, here are some overall decent options.

Under 3.5 Goals Betting Tips

There are some additional pointers we can give you.

For starters, here are some statistics you might want to look up:
  • Look for matches in which the teams are more-or-less equal in terms of form and strength. A potential stalemate could mean a winning Under 3.5 Goals bet for you.
  • Bad weather and turf conditions usually negatively impact the scoring ability of the players.
  • Because the odds are typically so short for this type of bet, you might be forced to combine it with several other wagers. For example, a multiple containing several Under 3.5 selections may be a good idea.
  • Things like the Bet Builder functionality certain top online sportsbooks offer can further extend the usefulness and versatility of the Under 3.5 market. Punters who can think creatively are usually rewarded for their efforts.

Under 3.5 Goals Betting Variations

Of course, there are some other ways in which you can use this market merely as a way of increasing betting odds for another, less likely outcome. Considering how much the online betting industry evolves every day, it would be impossible to list all such variations. However, here are some of the more common ones.

  • Home/Away Win and Under 3.5. The most basic way of using the idea we just mentioned, but perhaps the most useful one. You can treat this as a typical 1X2 bet, only with increased returns. Like we said – when it comes down to it, most games end with less than 4 goals.
  • Under 3.5 and Both Teams to Score. On paper, this kind of offer does not make a lot of sense. I mean, you’re actively predicting that the teams won’t score. As such, we can’t see a lot of ways of using this variation efficiently.

Under 3.5 Goals Verdict

It would be dishonest to say that this market is not a niche one at best. However, going against the grain is another staple of successful bettors. If you’re able to spot things others cannot and use possibilities others do not, the sky is the limit.

Of course, figuring out something new will take a lot of trial and error. You could start with just using Under 3.5 Goals to boost your odds and see how it goes. After all, betting is a form of entertainment, and trying something different is always exciting.
