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 23rd to Monday 26th August

Troyes v Lens – Over 0.5 Goals

Troyes do not tend to be involved in too many goalless draws on their own patch in Ligue 2, with just one of their previous 20 encounters finishing in this sort of stalemate. Including the playoffs, Lens have now been involved in 14 consecutive matches in which the deadlock has been broken, so it would be wise to expect the net to ripple at least once in this clash.

Kilmarnock v Aberdeen – Over 0.5 Goals

Aberdeen have now gone 11 matches at the top table of Scottish football without involvement in a 0-0 draw, including their 1-0 win at Kilmarnock on their most recent visit to this ground. As for the struggling hosts, they have now played eight times at this level since they last shared a goalless draw, so there is every chance of somebody coming up with a goal.

Boavista v Pacos de Ferreira – Over 0.5 Goals

Pacos de Ferreira simply do not do goalless draws on their top-flight travels, though the complete absence of such results in their last 20 away games has a lot to do with the fact that they have managed just a single clean sheet. As for Boavista, they have now been involved in 14 consecutive home matches at this level in which the net has rippled at least once.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Burnley – Over 0.5 Goals

In recent times, Burnley have cultivated a reputation for being difficult to play against under Sean Dyche, so it is somewhat surprising to see that none of their previous 17 top-flight games have finished 0-0. Given that Wolves have only been held to one goalless draw at Molineux since returning to the Premier League, we should see at least one goal in this clash.

Over / Under 0.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August

Bordeaux v Montpellier – Over 0.5 Goals

Although none of their previous five top-flight encounters have produced more than a couple of goals, Montpellier have now gone 15 Ligue 1 matches without being involved in a 0-0 draw. It has been nine top-flight fixtures since Bordeaux were last involved in a goalless encounter, and the last staging of this fixture saw the visitors run out 2-1 winners.

Sheffield United v Crystal Palace – Over 0.5 Goals

Sheffield United have now gone 14 games since they were last held to a goalless draw on their own patch, and the fact that Sheffield Wednesday were their opponents on that occasion plays to the old adage that form goes out of the window in a derby. As for Crystal Palace, each of their last 12 top-flight away matches has produced a minimum of one goal.

Ufa v Rostov – Over 0.5 Goals

When Rostov come calling, 0-0 draws rarely follow in the top-flight, with just one of their previous 20 trips ending without a goal being scored. Throw in the fact that none of the last 11 Ufa home games at this level have ended scoreless, and it is easy to see why we expect the deadlock to be broken at some point when the two teams lock horns in this clash.

MFK Karvina v Slovan Liberec – Over 0.5 Goals

Although MFK Karvina earned a creditable 0-0 draw with defending champions Slavia Praha in their most recent home match, none of their previous 19 top-flight fixtures at this venue had ended scoreless. For their part, Slovan Liberec have now been involved in 11 consecutive away games in the Czech First League in which at least one goal has been netted.

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.
