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.

Liverpool - Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton & Hove Albion will have little to hope for against Liverpool. 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 - Albion 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.

Salzburg - LASK Linz

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

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

KV Oostende - Genk

KV Oostende will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by Genk, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 4.00.

With 1.91 odds for an away win, Genk 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.

Fenerbahçe - Alanyaspor

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Fenerbahçe are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Alanyaspor and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.52.

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 Alanyaspor, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 6.50.

Mjällby - GIF Sundsvall

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. GIF Sundsvall stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 8.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

AZ Alkmaar - Ajax

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 Ajax.

Considering the balance of power in this match, it seems that a draw may be the extent of the home team’s ambition. Ajax are at a clear advantage, which is reflected in the 1.70 odds for an away win 1X2 bet.

İstanbulspor - Beşiktaş

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

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

Wolverhampton Wanderers - Manchester City

A home win is not something we would recommend betting on at the odds of 10.00 – but you’re probably aware of that already. It would take a miracle for Wolverhampton Wanderers to pull off even a draw, let alone a win as underdogs.

A trip to The Wanderers can hardly be seen as a big test for Manchester City. With 1.35 betting odds stacked in their favour, it’s hard seeing past anything other than a compelling away win here.

Häcken - Hammarby

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 2.90 away win betting odds indicate that Hammarby are the underdogs of this matchup. The difference is not huge, though, so both a victory for the visitors and are draw are still on the table.

Borussia M'gladbach - RB Leipzig

Borussia M'gladbach will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though RB Leipzig don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 3.10 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

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

Nordsjælland - Midtjylland

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

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.

Hertha BSC - Bayer Leverkusen

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Hertha BSC winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to Bayer Leverkusen, which is made quite clear with the 3.80 odds offered for a home win result.

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

RB Leipzig - Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund will give RB Leipzig 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.

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

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

Barcelona seem to be on their way to another easy victory and 3 more points to the tally. Priced at 1.27, the odds favour them heavily, so any outcome other than an away win is not exactly a safe choice.

Porto - Chaves

With the 1.17 odds on a home win, there’s little doubt that Porto will win the match on Saturday. Chaves winning would be one of the biggest upsets of the season, but we wouldn’t hold our breaths for that to happen.

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 Chaves, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 19.00.

Monza - Atalanta

The most probable outcome of this match is Monza getting completely overwhelmed. They are underdogs by a considerable margin, and it’s not likely even the most optimistic of their fans are expecting them to pull off a victory.

Having a 1.53 selection on your slip can be a big boost to your potential winnings and with Atalanta largely expected to beat Monza, you’d be wise to use it.

Roma should stroll into a fairly easy victory this Tuesday. The odds are decidedly in their favour, with most top bookies pricing a home win at 1.30.

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

All the punters who backed Roma to get a draw from their latest Serie A trip must have had a crystal ball as this match was pretty hard to predict. Given the odds of to... read more

Hellas Verona managing to pull off a victory here would be quite the upset. They are definitely underdogs, so even the home-field advantage isn’t able to push the odds lower than 4.20 for a home win.

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

Espanyol - Real Madrid

With most bookies pricing a home win at 7.00, this is one of the more lopsided matches of the season. Needless to say, Espanyol don’t stand much of a chance at coming out on top.

We are likely going to see Real Madrid triumph this Sunday, though Espanyol 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.

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 Wolfsburg, so we’d stay away unless you’re looking for a long shot on purpose.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Wolfsburg stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 6.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

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.
