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.

GIF Sundsvall - Djurgården

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 8.00 price for a home win should be enough to tell you that, though.

It’s hard to see this match going any other way than an away win. Priced at 1.41 with most bookies, this match is a fairly one-sided affair, and GIF Sundsvall will need to give quite the performance if they want to get any points out of it.

Vålerenga - Rosenborg

Rosenborg will give Vålerenga 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.

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.

Sarpsborg 08 - Molde

Beating Molde will not be easy, but we believe Sarpsborg 08 are more than capable of doing so. The matchup is somewhat balanced, after all, so all three possible outcomes are still on the table.

Molde 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.

After losing their latest home game 1:2, Sarpsborg 08 have a lot to prove in this match. Confidence in their form is quite shaky considering they we... read more

Viking - HamKam

Viking 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.

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

Brest - Bordeaux

Though Brest 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.

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.

Real Madrid - Real Betis

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

It would be a minor miracle for Los Verdiblancos to win at Real Madrid, 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.

Though Galatasaray 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.

It would be a minor miracle for Adana Demirspor to win at Galatasaray, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 3.70 price on most online sportsbooks.

Viking - Jerv

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

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

Viking recorded a draw the last time they played at SR-Bank Arena, which severely failed to meet expectations. Most bookies priced a home win at 1.40 in that game, ... read more

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

The Clarets are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Tottenham.

Sporting CP - Santa Clara

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

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

Porto - Estoril

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

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Estoril are given 17.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Dundee United - Celtic

There is a big reason why Dundee United are given 12.00 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Celtic and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

A trip to Dundee United can hardly be seen as a big test for Celtic. With 1.25 betting odds stacked in their favour, it’s hard seeing past anything other than a compelling away win here.

There is a big reason why Aston Villa are given 7.10 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Liverpool and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

Taking a 1.47 bet on an away game can often be risky but when it comes to Liverpool ahead of their trip to Villans, this match can be a great addition to your betting slip.

Nordsjælland - OB

Betting odds can be illusive at times and OB are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Nordsjælland should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

OB 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 3.20 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

Gent - Mechelen

It’s easy to point out Gent 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.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Mechelen stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 6.40, marking a... read more

Peterborough United - Blackpool

Peterborough United will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Blackpool. The price of 3.35 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

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

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Barnsley stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 8.00, 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.
