What does 0.5 goals mean in betting?

When betting on 0.5 goals you have the option of backing under or over. Below both concepts are explained:

When you back over 0.5 goals you are predicting that the game will have 1 goal or more scored. If any goal is scored you will have won the bet.

With this selection you would only lose if the match ended a 0-0 draw.

Backing Under 0.5 Goals

When you back under 0.5 goals you are predicting that the match will have no goals. This bet is identical to backing correct score 0-0, as the only way this bet is won is if no goals are scored.

The same rules apply for all other similar goal markets, including over and under 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 and 4.5. In some matches higher options are available and can go up to 8.5 goals.

I went on a really long run of backing over 0.5 goals in games. I managed to do 43 games in a row before I got my first loss. I feel if you target games which are 0-0 after 20 minutes you get the best odds even though they are still small. It usually takes 20+ minutes for a game to get fully going anyway and if the game has a goal before 20 minutes just ignore it and move on to next bet. Interestingly enough out of the 43 games I bet on 31 of them were over 1.5 goals so this is something I am looking into now as obviously that offers better odds especially if you do the same and wait for first 20 minutes to pass.

If i bet under 0.5 the ended score is 2-2 i win?

Response: No, you would lose, under 0.5 goals means the game would have to end 0-0 for you to win. Thanks for sharing at WhereWhyWhen.com

The only reason I was confused was I wondered why they even have under 0.5 goals when you can just back 0-0 correct score. I still do not understand why bookmakers have both, I guess the more markets the merrier. cheers for explaining it.

So basically if I back over 0.5 goals I will win as soon as one team scores. This is the confirmation I needed, thank you.

@craigtommo Many people try to allow a game to pass by without a goal for 20-30 minutes and then of course if a goal has been scored by neither team back over 0.5 at a more decent price, if a goal is scored you move onto the next game having bet nothing. Remember you are only needing 1 goal to be scored by either club so backing at say 1.30 will still give you £3 profit from a £10 bet. I do however agree with you regarding under 0.5, I know of no system as 1 goal destroys any bets you had on.

I guess they have lots of different bets that just mean the same thing then as I had a feeling under 0.5 goals meant 0-0 but like others questioning it here, why do they have it? I suppose it's same for a lot of things, for example under 1.5 goals is exact same as backing 0-0, 1-0 and 0-1. Odds are sucky on 0.5, fail to see how you can make money from it or use it in a system.

I have a friend who backs under 0.5 goals and I told him he is crazy to do so considering so many bookmakers offer you some sort of a free bet if the game ends a boring 0-0. He would be better just backing correct score 0-0, 1-0, and 0-1 if he thinks the game will be low scoring, and then that way he might win on the 1-0 and 0-1.

I ponder why under 0.5 even exists when you can just place a bet on correct score full-time 0-0 and the exact same bet is achieved!!

Ok so after confirming what over 0.5 goals is which I sort of knew anyway, am going to try a system where I keep increasing my stake with winnings going from match to match. I read somewhere which said if I can do 90 games in a row starting with just £10, I can be up to about £50000 :O
