Over/Under 0.5 Goals Tips & Predictions

Over/under 0.5 goals is a popular betting market with punters across a variety of football leagues and matches.

It’s easy enough to get your head around. Essentially, you bet on no goals to be scored, or more.

It’s not as difficult to predict as some others, however, there are still attractive odds to be found - particularly if you place an acca bet.

Over / Under 0.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 11th October to Monday 14th October

Malaga v Cadiz – Over 0.5 Goals

Cadiz are on a roll when it comes to their involvement in second-tier away games containing a minimum of one goal, with this being the case in each of their previous 14 contests. Including the playoffs, 19 of the last 20 Malaga matches at this level have seen the deadlock being broken, meaning that it would be a shock to see both keepers pitching a shutout.

Mirandes v Fuenlabrada – Over 0.5 Goals

Mirandes and Fuenlabrada were both promoted to the Segunda Division last season, and that is not the only similarity between the two teams. Thus far in the current campaign, neither of these clubs has experienced a 0-0 draw, despite playing in a combined 19 matches, so it would come as a surprise were the deadlock not to be broken in this head-to-head clash.

Albacete v Real Oviedo – Over 0.5 Goals

Including the playoffs, 16 of the most recent 17 second-tier matches involving Albacete have featured at least one goal, so the chances of this contest finishing scoreless appear pretty slim. What’s more, further weight is given to that argument when you consider the fact that none of the last 11 Real Oviedo away games at this level have ended without a goal being scored.

Getafe v Leganes – Over 0.5 Goals

Bizarrely enough, Real Madrid remain the only one of the previous 20 top-flight visitors to have left Getafe with a 0-0 draw, so stalemates have not really been on the agenda for the Europa League qualifiers. As for Leganes, they have now made 13 La Liga trips since they were last involved in a scoreless encounter, one of which was a 2-0 win at this ground.

Over / Under 0.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 4th October to Monday 7th October

Nancy v Niort – Over 0.5 Goals

Niort are clearly not big on goalless draws, with the net bulging at least once in each of their previous 15 fixtures in the second tier of French football. The same can be said of Nancy, as they have now played eight matches in Ligue 2 since they were last involved in a scoreless encounter, so the two teams should be able to muster up one or more goals between them.

Auxerre v Le Havre – Over 0.5 Goals

Auxerre have now played ten times in Ligue 2 since they were last involved in a 0-0 draw, whilst the deadlock has remained unbroken in just one of their previous 15 encounters over the slightly longer term. As for Le Havre, only one of their last 16 second-tier fixtures has ended without a goal being scored, and that game took place on their own ground.

Rennes v Reims – Over 0.5 Goals

Rennes and Reims have met ten times in Ligue 1 since the beginning of the 2012/13 campaign, with all of these encounters producing at least one goal. Given that none of the hosts’ previous six games on their own patch at this level or any of the visitors’ most recent seven top-flight fixtures on the road have finished scoreless, a 0-0 draw would be a surprise.

Real Sociedad v Getafe – Over 0.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 20 La Liga matches, Real Sociedad have not been involved in a single 0-0 draw, so the team from San Sebastián have been the epitome of consistency on that front. Getafe were beaten 2-1 in this fixture back in April, with that result marking the start of their current run of 11 top-flight games in which the scorers have been troubled at least once.

Over / Under 0.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 27th September to Monday 30th September

Boavista v Tondela – Over 0.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 16 top-flight home games, Boavista have not been involved in a single scoreless fixture, with a 2-0 win against Tondela included in this sequence. For their part, the visitors have featured in just a couple of 0-0 draws in their previous 20 trips at the top table of Portuguese football, and Vitoria Setubal were their opponents on both occasions.

Krylia Sovetov Samara v Tambov – Over 0.5 Goals

Since gaining promotion to the Russian Premier League, Tambov have not been involved in any 0-0 draws, with this sequence currently encompassing ten matches. Krylia Sovetov Samara have not been big on goalless draws either, as 19 of their previous 20 games at this level have seen the deadlock being broken at some point during the 90 minutes.

Huddersfield Town v Millwall – Over 0.5 Goals

Irrespective of who has been in charge, Huddersfield have now been involved in 21 consecutive league games on their own patch in which at least a single goal has been netted. Given that none of the previous 26 Millwall away matches in the Championship have finished scoreless, it would be fair to expect the net to bulge once or more in this clash.

Maritimo v Moreirense – Over 0.5 Goals

Moreirense have been pretty consistent when it comes to their involvement in top-flight away fixtures featuring over 0.5 goals, with just one of their previous 20 trips ending scoreless. As for Maritimo, they are currently on a run of 17 Primeira Liga matches in which at least a single goal has been netted, including in a 3-2 victory against these opponents last season.

Over / Under 0.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 20th September to Monday 23rd September

Akhmat Grozny v Krylia Sovetov Samara – Over 0.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 20 Russian Premier League matches, Krylia Sovetov Samara have been involved in just one encounter that has finished scoreless. Considering Akhmat Grozny are currently on a 13-match run of top-flight home fixtures containing over 0.5 goals, it is easy to see why this contest is expected to provide at least one successful strike.

Birmingham City v Preston North End – Over 0.5 Goals

Somewhat incredibly, Preston have now gone 37 away games since they were last involved in a 0-0 draw in the Championship, so the net is expected to bulge at least once in this clash. Although they cannot possibly compete with those numbers, Birmingham have not been involved in a goalless draw in any of their most recent 13 second-tier home fixtures either.

Newcastle United v Brighton & Hove Albion – Over 0.5 Goals

Goalless draws have been few and far between in recent Brighton matches at this level, with just one in their last 18 fixtures and none in the previous nine. It has been a similar story as far as Newcastle are concerned on their own patch of late, as Fulham have been the only one of the last 20 top-flight visitors to leave St. James’ Park with a 0-0 scoreline.

Espanyol v Real Sociedad – Over 0.5 Goals

When Espanyol take to the field on their own patch, scoreless draws appear no longer to be a possibility, with one or more goals being netted in each of their previous 24 top-flight fixtures on home soil. This has also been the case in 17 La Liga matches on the bounce involving Real Sociedad, so at least one of the two goalkeepers should be denied a clean sheet here.

How Does Over/Under 0.5 Goals Betting Work?

If you back under 0.5 goals, you’re betting that no goals will be scored. If you back over 0.5 goals, you’re betting that more than one will be scored over the game. There can be any number of goals, just as long as there’s one, your bet will win.

Therefore, the score at full time determines whether or not you’re successful. It’s also referred to as ‘a goal in the game’ by punters.

This is very similar to the other goal markets, including 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5.

Why Is It Popular?

The simplicity of this market is partly what makes it so popular with bettors. Compared with half time/full time bets, for example, it’s much more straightforward.

While you might not be able to find the odds offered by the correct score market, for example, this isn’t to say you can’t win some attractive returns. The key is that you don’t have to spend much in order for your bet to win. Particularly if placed as part of an acca bet, this market can be an extremely profitable one.

It can be found in a variety of leagues and matches, offered by most of the best betting sites out there.
