Over/Under 5.5 Goals

The over/under 5.5 goals market is pretty heavily skewed – the vast majority of matches finish with under 5.5 goals. So when making a prediction on this market, you can go one of two ways – either building an acca out of likely under 5.5 goals matches with low odds, or really looking for the value bets, those rare games which finish with over 5.5 goals.

We’ve got predictions for under 5.5 goals and over 5.5 goals here so you can choose which is right for you.

Over/Under 5.5 Goals Tips and Predictions

Our expert tipsters use all the best information on KickOff to produce the best over/under 5.5 goals predictions around for today and tomorrow, and usually up to a whole week in advance! So if you’re looking for under or over 5.5 goals predictions from the Premier League and beyond, take a look below.

Friday 28th January – Valladolid v Sporting Gijon – Under 5.5 Goals

Sporting Gijon come into this match on the verge of a milestone. They have played 99 league games since they last took part in one which featured over 5.5 goals. If they can avoid a 6 goal thriller with Valladolid that will become 100. And that looks relatively likely – their opponents have not had a league match with over 5.5 goals in 89 attempts either, and have conceded an average of just 0.9 goals per game in their last 20 at home.

Saturday 29th January – Zurich v Servette – Under 5.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 20 home matches at the top table of Swiss football, current leaders Zurich have featured in just two encounters containing more than five goals. As for Servette, 19 of their previous 20 away games at this level have also been of the under 5.5 goals variety, so any deviation from this script would come as a surprise in this clash.

Wednesday 2nd February – Benfica v Gil Vicente – Under 5.5 Goals

Since triumphing 4-2 at Vitoria de Guimaraes in March 2021, Gil Vicente have played 30 times in the Primeira Liga, with every single one of these contests delivering a maximum of five goals. Given that 17 of the last 20 Benfica home games at this level have followed the same pattern, it would come as a surprise were this encounter to serve up six goals or more.

Over/Under 5.5 Goals Explained

This betting market is fairly straightforward.

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

Terms And Conditions

It doesn’t matter what the final result of the match is or which team wins – all that matters is the total number of goals scored. If you backed the over, and the final score is 4-2, then your bet is a winner, if it’s 3-2 then your bet will lose.

All goals scored by both sides count, including own goals. 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 can be a good market no matter whether one team is the clear favourite to win, or if it’s looking like a tight contest – what really matters is how many goals the teams usually score.

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. Under 5.5 goals bets do work especially well as accumulator bets though, which can improve the profit you make. This is because their low odds mean that even with multiple selections the odds don’t become so unmanageable that it’s difficult to win the bet.

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

Looking for similar markets? Some alternatives include:
● Over/under 0.5 goals
● Over/under 1.5 goals
● Over/under 2.5 goals
● Over/under 3.5 goals
● Over/under 4.5 goals

These all follow the same pattern; the number of goals scored by the time the final whistle goes at 90 minutes determines whether or not your bet has been successful.

Profitable Football Betting

Here are some other tips for how to win football bets:

Take Advantage Of Offers

Why not make the highest possible return for your original stake?

Deals such as free bet offers allow you to win at the bookies expense – making money without spending as much. Sometimes these are only available to new customers, as a way to entice you in.

Enhanced odds offers give your potential winnings a boost, particularly useful in markets with shorter odds. This can help you win as much as possible.

Follow Tipsters

At KickOff, you are the football tipsters. You can track your progress and see which markets you’ve had the most success in.

Place An Acca Bet

An accumulator links more than one bet together, boosting your winnings significantly. This is particularly useful for rolling up shorter odds into one bigger bet.

For your bet to win, all parts must be successful. Therefore, it’s recommended to use football accumulator tips to give yourself the best chance.
