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

NEC - Feyenoord

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

Feyenoord are expected to win this match, which is made quite clear by the 1.40 odds that can be found with most bookies. The odds are not so short as to make an Away Win bet not worth taking, though, which also implies a certain degree of risk.

Union Saint-Gilloise - Genk

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

At 3.70 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive Genk are well aware of it themselves.

Genk’s latest home game performance was fairly dull, and it didn’t show them in a great light. That particular bout against Mechelen produced no... read more

Mechelen - Anderlecht

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

Anderlecht are expected to have no hiccups going past Mechelen in this match and betting odds offered by the world’s top bookmakers are there to confirm it.

Mechelen managed to go home with a : draw in the last round – which took a considerable effort. They were matched up as visitors against Genk , who were heavily favoured at ... read more

Milan - Spezia

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

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.

Serie A betting predictions were quite optimistic about the home team’s chances of winning their previous match, and they turned out to be correct. Milan... read more

Belenenses - Porto

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

Priced at very short odds of 1.21, and away win seems the most logical outcome here. Belenenses may be hoping to pull off a draw or surprise win, but both of these are longshots.

Benfica - Moreirense

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.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Moreirense 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.

Benfica have shown to know how to seize an opportunity and keep it going. Just last round t... read more

Stuttgart - RB Leipzig

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

Though we can’t say for certain, all signs are pointing towards RB Leipzig as the final winner of this showdown. Stuttgart have been known to surprise us from time to time, though, so the match isn’t a done deal.

Stuttgart played at Greuther Fürth in the previous r... read more

Mechelen - RFC Seraing

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

RFC Seraing will have little to hope for in this match. 4.80 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.

Inter - Torino

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

Torino stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 11.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

The Nerazzurri strolled into an easily predictable away win in their previous Serie A bout. They quickly gained the upper hand in t... read more

Empoli - Milan

Empoli are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Serie A, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 4.60, it’s not very likely to happen.

We are likely going to see Milan triumph this Wednesday, though Empoli do have a fighting chance. Maybe the home field advantage will be enough to spur them into a surprise draw or victory, though it’s not a probable outcome.

Vitesse - PEC Zwolle

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

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - PEC Zwolle 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.

Sporting Braga - Belenenses

This match itself isn’t likely to be much of a contest. The hosts are an overwhelmingly stronger team, and most bookmakers and experts agree that Belenenses don’t stand much of a chance.

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 Belenenses, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 17.00.

RB Leipzig - Arminia Bielefeld

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

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Team from Bielefeld 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.

Genk - Sporting Charleroi

Genk are easily the favourites in the match this Thursday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 1.95 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Sporting Charleroi may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

The visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 3.65 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

Mechelen - Gent

Mechelen will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by Gent, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 3.60.

With a price of 2.00 on them winning, Gent 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.

Rangers - St. Johnstone

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

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

Ross County - Celtic

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

Celtic are expected to win this match, which is made quite clear by the 1.35 odds that can be found with most bookies. The odds are not so short as to make an Away Win bet not worth taking, though, which also implies a certain degree of risk.

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

Spezia stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 8.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

With the betting odds being what they are, an Motherwell win or even a draw would be incredibly surprising. Celtic are very hard favourites and their victory seems almost inevitable.

Motherwell stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 17.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

Kristiansund - Vålerenga

Kristiansund may come out on top this Sunday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Vålerenga. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 2.55 for the hosts to win.

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 Vålerenga.

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.
