Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 18th to Monday 21st September

Valerenga v Molde – Under 5.5 Goals

Under 5.5 goals has been the order of the day in 17 consecutive Eliteserien matches involving Molde, so the team once managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have proven themselves to be incredibly consistent on this particular front. The same can also be said of Valerenga, as no more than five goals have been netted in 17 of their previous 18 games at this level.

BSC Young Boys v Zurich – Under 5.5 Goals

Since drawing 3-3 at Neuchatel Xamax in November 2018, Zurich have been involved in 28 away games on the bounce containing under 5.5 goals in the Swiss Super League. This has also been the case in 17 of the last 20 matches involving three-time defending champions Young Boys, so it would come as a surprise to see more than five goals in this encounter.

Fylkir v FH – Under 5.5 Goals

Prior to playing host to Vikingur on Thursday evening, 11 of the 12 top-flight matches involving FH this season had served up no more than five successful strikes. This has also been the case in all 14 games played by Fylkir at this level during the current campaign, so there is no reason to expect this sequence to come to an end against these opponents.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 11th to Monday 14th September

Ross County v Celtic – Under 5.5 Goals

You have to go back to a 4-2 loss at the hands of Aberdeen in January 2018 to find the last time that Ross County were involved in a home game containing over 5.5 goals, with the run currently standing at 41 matches. Celtic cannot compete with these numbers, but the Scottish champions have been involved in 16 away matches on the spin featuring under 5.5 goals.

Kristiansund v Viking – Under 5.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 15 matches at the top table of Norwegian football, Viking have been involved in no fewer than 14 contests containing under 5.5 goals. As for Kristiansund, their previous 14 games at this level have all produced five goals or fewer, so it would come as a surprise were this Eliteserien contest to serve up six goals or more on Saturday evening.

RKC Waalwijk v Vitesse Arnhem – Under 5.5 Goals

Since gaining promotion back to the Eredivisie, RKC Waalwijk have been the epitome of consistency when it comes to their involvement in home games containing under 5.5 goals, with all 13 clashes subscribing to this particular scoring model. Given that 15 of the last 16 Vitesse away matches at this level have done the same, something similar is expected here.

Bodø/Glimt v Odd – Under 5.5 Goals

Leaders Bodø/Glimt may have scored at an incredible rate of 3.5 goals per game in the Eliteserien so far this season, yet just two of their previous 14 contests have served up six goals or more. Given that Odd have been involved in 44 consecutive top-flight away matches containing under 5.5 goals, it is hard to see that changing even against such potent opponents.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Thursday 3rd to Wednesday 9th September

IFK Norrköping v Östersunds – Under 5.5 Goals

Since winning 4-3 against Falkenbergs in April 2019, Norrköping have played 22 home games at the top table of Swedish football, with every single one of these contests serving up under 5.5 goals. This has also been the case in 19 of the last 20 Östersunds away matches at this level, including a 3-0 defeat on this very ground, so expect something similar here.

Lens v Paris Saint-Germain – Under 5.5 Goals

Under 5.5 goals has been the order of the day in 34 consecutive Lens matches in the league, with eight of the last 11 actually producing no more than a couple of successful strikes. Paris Saint-Germain may be a very different animal to the sides that the hosts were facing last season, but 18 of their most recent 20 away games have still produced five goals or fewer.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Thursday 27th August to Wednesday 2nd September

Lech Poznań v Wisła Płock – Under 5.5 Goals

Since stumbling to a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Wisła Kraków back in August 2018, Lech Poznań have been involved in 34 consecutive Ekstraklasa home games containing under 5.5 goals. This has also been the case in 55 top-flight fixtures on the bounce involving Wisła Płock, so anyone expecting six goals or more looks set for an afternoon of disappointment.

Sandefjord v Kristiansund – Under 5.5 Goals

Newly-promoted Sandefjord have featured 15 times in the Eliteserien during the current campaign, with no fewer than 14 of these fixtures serving up under 5.5 goals. Given that 18 of the last 19 matches involving Kristiansund at the top table of Norwegian football have also produced a maximum of five goals, this contest is expected to deliver something similar.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Thursday 20th August to Wednesday 26th August

Fylkir v Stjarnan – Under 5.5 Goals

Fylkir have featured ten times during the current campaign, with every single one of these fixtures serving up under 5.5 goals, so there is every reason to expect this pattern to continue. As for high-flying Stjarnan, they have now been involved in 14 top-flight matches on the spin containing five goals or fewer, so more of the same is expected when the two teams collide.

Strømsgodset v Viking FK – Under 5.5 Goals

Although they have been involved in more than their fair share of exciting games recently, it is still worth noting that 14 of the previous 15 Eliteserien fixtures involving Strømsgodset have served up under 5.5 goals. This has also been the case in 12 of the last 13 matches involving Viking at this level, so any deviation from this script would come as a surprise.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Thursday 13th August to Wednesday 19th August

Gent v Kortrijk – Under 5.5 Goals

Under 5.5 goals has been the order of the day in each of the previous 14 Gent home matches at the top table of Belgian football, as well as in 19 of their last 20 games on their own patch over the slightly longer term. As for Kortrijk, they have now been involved in 26 consecutive fixtures containing under 5.5 goals, so it would come as a surprise to see anything different.

Sandefjord v Bodø/Glimt – Under 5.5 Goals

Sandefjord have featured 13 times since returning to the Eliteserien, with no fewer than 12 of these fixtures containing under 5.5 goals, so achieving consistency has not proven too difficult on this particular front. Bodø/Glimt tend to be involved in thrillers, yet ten of the title-chasers’ previous 11 matches have delivered no more than five successful strikes.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Thursday 6th August to Wednesday 12th August

Vålerenga v Bodø/Glimt – Under 5.5 Goals

Vålerenga are on a roll when it comes to their involvement in Eliteserien matches containing under 5.5 goals, with 13 in a row subscribing to this particular scoring model. Although virtually every game played by title-chasing Bodø/Glimt this season has been an absolute thriller, just one of their most recent ten encounters has broken through the five-goal barrier.

Bayern Munich v Chelsea – Under 5.5 Goals

Chelsea may have been involved in a couple of recent thrillers in European competition, beating Slavia Prague 4-3 and drawing 4-4 with Ajax, but it remains the case that 18 of their last 20 matches have produced five goals or fewer. This has also been the scenario in 18 of the previous 20 Bayern Munich home games at this level, so more of the same is expected.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 31st July to Monday 3rd August

Stabæk v Bodø/Glimt – Under 5.5 Goals

Although Bodø/Glimt have been scoring goals for fun in what has been a perfect start to the campaign, it remains the case that the net has bulged no more than five times in seven of their previous eight Eliteserien matches. This has also been the case in 18 of the most recent 20 Stabæk home games at this level, so any deviation from this script would come as a surprise.

Sion v BSC Young Boys – Under 5.5 Goals

Under 5.5 goals has been the order of the day in recent Sion home games at the top table of Swiss football, with 19 of their previous 20 matches, including ten in a row of late, subscribing to this particular scoring model. Not only that, but 18 of the last 20 Young Boys away fixtures at this level have also produced no more than five successful strikes.

Atalanta v Internazionale – Under 5.5 Goals

No more than five goals have been scored in 19 of the last 20 Inter Milan away games in Serie A, with the exception being a thrilling 4-3 win at Sassuolo back in October. Opponents Atalanta are quite rightly lauded for the entertainment that their football provides, but it is worth noting that 18 of their most recent 20 home matches have delivered under 5.5 goals.

AC Milan v Cagliari – Under 5.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 20 home games in Serie A, AC Milan have been involved in just a couple of contests in which more than five goals have been netted. These numbers pale into insignificance when measured against those of their opponents, however, as Cagliari have been involved in 56 consecutive matches containing under 5.5 goals on their league travels.

Over Under Goals Explained

This betting market is fairly straightforward.

If you back over 5.5 goals, you’re betting that over 6 will be scored over the course of 90 minutes. If you back under, you think less than 6 will be scored.

Terms and Conditions

It’s irrelevant of the final number of goal scores, just whether the total goals is more or less than 6. For example, your bet wins if the number is more than 6 and you backed over.

All goals scored by both sides are included.

Also, it’s important to note that over/under goals bets run for the full 90 minutes. This doesn’t include extra time or penalties.

Sometimes, bookmakers won’t offer this market at all, so it’s essential to find the best betting site for you.

Why Is It Popular?

Over/under goals markets are one of the most popular ways punters bet on a football match. Depending on the match itself, there are some attractive odds to be found.

It’s a good market if one team is the clear favourite to win, or if you want to give the underdog a chance.

Compared to markets such as half time/full time bets, it’s much easier to predict. However, this isn’t to say you can’t make good returns. Particularly if you place this bet as part of an acca, there are some attractive winnings to be found here.

These bets are offered by a variety of bookies, including William Hill. They also can be found across many different football matches, including the Premier League.

Example

Let’s break it down – here’s an example of the type of bets that would win.

Over

Over 5.5 goals means 6 or more being scored in 90 minutes.

So, an example of a score that would make your bet successful would be 3-3, 5-1, 4-2, 6-0.

Under

An example of an under 5.5 goals would be 4-1, 0-0, 3-2, 5-0.

Alternative Markets
