What does under 3.5 goals mean?

Under 3.5 goals in betting means you think the game will have 3 goals or less. If the game has 4 goals or more you would lose the bet.

So if you were to back under 3.5 goals you would win if the outcome of the game ended as one of the following results:

0-0, 1-1, 1-0, 0-1, 2-0, 0-2, 2-1, 1-2, 3-0 and 0-3.

When backing under 3.5 goals you are looking for two teams who are equally matched. For example Real Madrid v a bottom of the table team could be a bad bet, as Real Madrid could easily win by 4 goals or more.

However Real Madrid v Barcelona would be a better option, as both teams are equally as good, so a high chance they cut each other out with limited goals.

  1. Just lost 120,000,00K in the Poland teams that played today. I choose under 3, the match ended 2-2 FT.
    What a mess!

  2. its very difficult when u pick under 3.5 at countries like, austria, germany,estonia,england, those league score alot.. i think the best place to pick is a league like argentina,egypt,or morrocco.. the dont have good strikers there.

    1. Scotland can be quite good for under 3.5 goals and under 2.5. I only really bet on countries which are good for being over 2.5 goals such as England, Holland, Italy and Germany. What you find with a lot of other countries is that very little money is bet on them. South American teams usually have a lot of games under 3.5 goals, Argentina, Mexico etc you should definitely look at these league games.

  3. My first attempt at the under 3.5 goals bet and I lost πŸ™ I never thought Hull v Chelsea would have many goals, ended 2-3, was 2-2 at half-time, oh well :p

    1. I try to avoid any games which have a top team playing even if you think the game will have under 3.5 goals. I think this works out better because top teams like Chelsea, Man Utd, Barcelona always have a high chance of playing really good and scoring loads. I prefer fixtures like Stoke v Aston Villa, those type of matches.

  4. This is great because the game I backed ended 0-0, at first though I thought I maybe needed the game to have at least 1 goal scored, but after reading this and then checking my betting account my under 3.5 goals bet has won πŸ™‚

  5. You can also be on the look out for a game where the draw suits both teams. Like a scenario where a draw means both qualify.

    In this situation most punters will not realise, and both teams will be reluctant to attack so much.

    1. Good point, like when both teams have qualified in a tournament, they will rest players, and maybe big name players, something to indeed watch out for.

    2. It can be good, however also be aware that if playing weakened side due to qualification or whatever, that some of the players will be eager to shine and impress manager so they can get 1st team place.

      Or they could be that poor with all the changes, that the other side hammer them.

  6. Exactly Paul, if you think of games such as Barcelona v Real Madrid, Rangers v Celtic, Man Utd v Liverpool etc They are not usually the highest of scoring games.

    Sometimes they even end as a bore 0-0.

  7. Makes sense to do these bets on 2 teams who will cancel one another out.

    How many times do traditional derby matches have lots of goals, not all that often.
