What over 4.5 goals means in betting?

When betting on over 4.5 goals your basically betting that the football match will have 5 goals or more.

It does not matter what team scores the goals, as long as the game has 5 goals (or more) you will win.

What over 4.5 goals means in betting?

For example, if you were to bet on over 4.5 goals with Manchester United playing Arsenal, and the full-time score ended 3-2, you have won, if the score ended 3-1 you have lost.

When you back over 4.5 goals, this is all the results where you would lose your bet:

Draw: 0-0, 1-1, 2-2

Home Win: 1-0, 2-0, 2-1, 3-0, 3-1, 4-0

Away Win: 0-1, 0-2, 1-2, 0-3, 1-3, 0-4

You will also find markets for big football games where you can bet on over 5.5, 6.5, 7.5 and 8.5 goals.

The betting companies usually add these on if the game in question has a high chance of lots of goals. For instance, if Real Madrid are playing at home against someone near the bottom of the table in La Liga.

Apart from the over goals market, you can also opt for under 4.5 goals. Of course though, the odds for this will be much lower, as the majority of football games do end with under 4.5 goals.

Thanks as I was unsure if it meant one side had to score the 5 goals or not, but this clears it up, so as long as the game in question has 5 goals in total the over 4.5 bet is a winner :) It was my friend who confused me, as I did think it was the way that is explained here ;)
