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.

Celtic - St. Johnstone

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. Celtic winning is by far the most likely outcome.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - St. Johnstone 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.

Sassuolo - Venezia

Sassuolo are firm favourites in this matchup, and backing them may offer surprising betting value. It’s a very safe bet, though we suppose an upset is not outside the realm of possibility. We wouldn’t count on Venezia winning, though.

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

Standard Liège - OH Leuven

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

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

Watford - Liverpool

Watford are the definition of underdogs in this fixture. With betting odds of 9.50, no punter will dare backing them up against Liverpool. It is a wise decision as well as hosts will have an extremely difficult task surviving this clash.

Liverpool fans are expecting a straightforward victory this Saturday, and who can blame them. With odds like the currently offered 1.37 for an away win, the home-field disadvantage doesn’t seem like a big obstacle in this case.

With the odds set at 1.66 for a home win, Fenerbahçe 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.

København - Viborg

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.55 is a solid option. That said, Viborg may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

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

Atalanta - Milan

By pricing a home win at around 2.15, the bookies made it clear that Atalanta are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

Milan are coming into this match as underdogs, though the difference is not overwhelming. Even so, they’re not all that likely to win. An Away Win bet is priced at 3.40 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

Standard Liège will give Mechelen a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.30 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

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

No-one expected Mechelen’s incredible performance in the previous round – least of all their opponents. Despit... read more

Nordsjælland - København

The 4.75 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.

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

KV Oostende are no strangers to surprises but with 4.33 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

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

Though Bayer Leverkusen 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.

Mainz 05 will have little to hope for in this match. 4.50 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.

Spezia - Milan

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.

The odds are clearly leaning in the away team’s favour, though the difference is by no means insurmountable. Spezia will have to give their all to come out on top, though, while Milan merely have to make sure not to make major mistakes.

Djurgården should stroll into a fairly easy victory this Wednesday. The odds are decidedly in their favour, with most top bookies pricing a home win at 1.29.

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

It’s easy to point out Feyenoord as the clear favourites, but we wouldn’t call this match completely one-sided. The hosts are definitely more likely to win between the two, but a tie game is another possibility. An away win would be quite a surprise, but we’ve seen bigger upsets.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact SC Heerenveen are given 7.35 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. An... read more

With the odds set at 1.38 for a home win, Beşiktaş 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.

Adana Demirspor are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Beşiktaş.

Benfica 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 1.22, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

Boavista 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.

Lazio are seen as favourites to win this match against Cagliari. 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, Cagliari can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 7.50 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.74 is a solid option. That said, Feyenoord may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

The odds are stacked heavily against Feyenoord here, and we can’t see them winning this match. PSV are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.75.

Degerfors - Sirius

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Degerfors 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 Sirius.

Sirius 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 2.75 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

Predicting which side will win this match based on odds alone is a complete toss-up. We would say the hosts have a bit of an advantage, but their success is by no means assured.

The 3.10 away win betting odds indicate that Lazio 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.

Leeds United are no strangers to surprises but with 4.50 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

Though Liverpool are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 1.81 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

The previous round for Leeds was quite uneventful, all things considered. The away game at Burnley saw a draw on half-time and a 1:1 draw at the end – not exactly a treat for... read more

Though OH Leuven definitely have a shot at winning this match, they’ll need to work for it. Kortrijk are somewhat stronger, but the home-field advantage may be what the hosts need to shift the balance in their favour.

No outcome of this match would catch us by surprise. It’s a rarely fair matchup, though that’s not always good for betting. Currently, though, Kortrijk are somewhat more likely to triumph with betting odds of 2.50 on them winning.

AZ Alkmaar have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 3.25 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

The match is most likely to go in the away team’s favour, though it’s by no means a sure thing. With 2.15 betting odds to win, PSV have the upper hand going in, but all three possible outcomes are possible.

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Midtjylland are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Nordsjælland and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.64.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Nordsjælland stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 5.60, marking an insurmountable difference.

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

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.

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.
