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.

Tried it on my first one today and guess what, it was 2-2 at half-time lol I had already lost inside 45 minutes in what I thought was going to be a tight match. Will continue to do it though as I think I was just unlucky, I am opting for Barcelona v Bayern to be under 3.5 tonight ;)

I like the fact you choose evenly matched teams to reduce the risk of 4 or more goals in the game. After confirming what exactly this bet involved I have now won 4 from 4 :) Under 3.5 is a lot easier than under 2.5 but of course you get better price at under 2.5.

Might start trying this on the French 1 league. Most of these games only have 1 or 2 goals max, even a 0-0 like PSG today at home. Maybe even under 2.

Having 0-0. 1-1, 1-0, 0-1, 2-0, 0-2, 2-1, 3-0 and 0-3 is quite a good selection because when look at a lot of the results these ones happen more often

Having 0-0. 1-1, 1-0, 0-1, 2-0, 0-2, 2-1, 3-0 and 0-3 is quite a good selection because when look at a lot of the results these ones happen more often than not. Blackpool are playing Cardiff tonight and even though I think Cardiff will win, I do not think may goals will be scored.

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

  2. 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 :)

  3. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
