Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 23rd to Monday 26th August

Hoffenheim v Werder Bremen – Under 5.5 Goals

In terms of a fixture that is likely to serve up under 5.5 goals, the Bundesliga meeting between Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen ticks all of the boxes. This is because none of the hosts’ previous 20 home games or any of the visitors’ last 20 away matches have broken through that elusive five-goal barrier, though both teams have come close to doing so.

Real Madrid v Real Valladolid – Under 5.5 Goals

Real Madrid are quite rightly regarded as an attack-minded team who like to entertain their supporters, yet none of their previous 19 La Liga home games have delivered more than five goals. This is also true of each of the last 17 Real Valladolid away matches at this level, and the hosts had to settle for just a 2-0 success in the most recent staging of this fixture.

Bournemouth v Manchester City – Under 5.5 Goals

Although three of Manchester City’s previous 20 top-flight away games have featured five goals, including each of the last two, none of these encounters have served up six or more. It would therefore be wise to expect this barrier to remain unbroken at Bournemouth, as 18 of the Cherries’ most recent 20 Premier League home fixtures have delivered under 5.5 goals.

Paris Saint-Germain v Toulouse – Under 5.5 Goals

Although Paris Saint-Germain are known for the wealth of attacking talent that is available to head coach Thomas Tuchel, none of their most recent nine Ligue 1 matches have produced more than five goals. For their part, some 19 of the previous 20 Toulouse away games at this level have delivered under 5.5 goals, including a 1-0 loss at the Parc des Princes.

Over / Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August

St. Polten v RB Salzburg – Under 5.5 Goals

Although RB Salzburg could hardly be accused of struggling to hit the back of the net in Austrian football in recent years, it is worth noting that just one of their last 20 top-flight away fixtures has produced over 5.5 goals. Interestingly, the numbers are identical for St. Polten on their own patch, so under 5.5 goals should be expected when the two sides meet.

Waasland-Beveren v KRC Genk – Under 5.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 20 matches in the Belgian top-flight, Genk have been involved in just a single fixture in which over 5.5 goals have been netted, so the chances of a repeat performance appear slim. What’s more, the numbers are identical for Waasland-Beveren on their own patch, thus providing further reason to expect five goals or fewer in this clash.

KAA Gent v Oostende – Under 5.5 Goals

Although the previous 20 Oostende away matches at this level have averaged a healthy 2.5 goals per game, no single fixture has produced more than five successful strikes. Given that just one of the last 20 Gent games at the top table of Belgian football has served up over 5.5 goals, it would be wise to expect this barrier to remain unbroken when the two sides collide.

Rennes v Paris Saint-Germain – Under 5.5 Goals

If recent history is anything to go by, then Rennes home matches in Ligue 1 always produce under 5.5 goals, with this being the case in each of their previous 20 encounters. Paris Saint-Germain certainly boast an impressive array of attacking options, yet only two of their last 20 away games at this level have produced six goals or more, and one of those was a defeat.

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

Take Advantage of Offers
