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.

Eintracht Frankfurt - Hertha BSC

Eintracht Frankfurt are seen as favourites to win this match against Hertha BSC. The betting odds indicate an easy win and anything but a home victory here would indeed be a big surprise.

Considering what they’re up against, Hertha 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.

Augsburg - Bayer Leverkusen

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 Bayer Leverkusen.

With a price of 1.83 on them winning, Team from Leverkusen 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.

Real Madrid - Valencia

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.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Valencia 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.

AS Eupen - Genk

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.

Any Result bet in this match other than Away Win would be quite optimistic indeed. Genk 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.

Arouca - Benfica

To call the upcoming match difficult for Arouca would be a major understatement. They are going up against impossible odds. With a home win priced at 9.50 with major online bookmakers, this is a completely one-sided game.

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

Feyenoord - NEC

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

From the present standpoint, the situation is clear as day. Considering the strength of Feyenoord and the 11.00 odds given to NEC to win, it is easy to conclude that a victory for the visiting team would be a surprising upset.

FC Emmen - PSV

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

Most bookies and expert opinions agree that PSV should record a decisive victory here. It’s a fairly one-sided matchup overall, and they are hard favourites despite playing as the away team.

FC Emmen will want to forget their previous Eredivisie match as quickly as possible. ... read more

Feyenoord - Ajax

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.75. Feyenoord will indeed find it very hard to beat Ajax here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Ajax should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.50 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - Feyenoord are no pushovers.

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.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Fortuna Sittard stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 10.00, marking an insurmountable difference.

While the scales seem somewhat tipped in the hosts’ favour, the win is anyone’s to take. Statistically speaking, all 3 outcomes to this match are quite possible, making reliable betting predictions hard to come by.

The visiting team is fully aware of the challenge that lies ahead. A win against Köln on their home field would be a significant achievement, and it is never an easy task.

With most bookies pricing a home win at 8.50, this is one of the more lopsided matches of the season. Needless to say, Fortuna Sittard don’t stand much of a chance at coming out on top.

Taking a 1.36 bet on an away game can often be risky but when it comes to PSV ahead of their trip to Fortuna Sittard, this match can be a great addition to your betting slip.

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

The current perspective makes the situation plain as day. Given the superiority of Gent and the 10.00 odds given to Kortrijk to win, it is clear that anything but a home win would be a stunning upset.

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.

A trip to FC Groningen can hardly be seen as a big test for Feyenoord. With 1.50 betting odds stacked in their favour, it’s hard seeing past anything other than a compelling away win here.

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

FC Volendam 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.

OH Leuven - Kortrijk

A home win should not be questioned in this game. OH Leuven are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Kortrijk and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.75.

It would be a minor miracle for Kortrijk to win at OH Leuven, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.60 price on most online sportsbooks.

Villarreal - Real Madrid

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

With 2.15 odds for an away win, Real Madrid have a rather clear path to victory. Still, there’s plenty of room for an upset in a match like this, so other options are still worth considering.

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.

With a price of 11.50 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Nottingham Forest will likely not fare well against Manchester United. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

Rangers should stroll into a fairly easy victory this Thursday. The odds are decidedly in their favour, with most top bookies pricing a home win at 1.33.

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

With the 1.52 being what they are, we don’t expect anything other than a home win. Pulling off anything else would be a gargantuan task for HamKam, so we’d stay away unless you’re looking for a long shot on purpose.

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

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.

    More about Under 3,5 Goals Predictions

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.

Bwin

One of the best bookmakers and biggest names in the industry, Bwin is renowned for depth their sportsbook offers – in other words, the huge number of available markets.

888sport

The same things we said for Bwin also apply to this bookie. Furthermore, this site stands out with an excellent mobile betting app and a focus on live betting.

Bet365

Remember how we said the Under 3.5 market is suitable for various Accas and combination bets? Well, this leading online bookie is the creator of the innovative Bet Builder feature, which allows you to combine your Under 3.5 selection with anything you can imagine.

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.
