Soccer over under predictions overview

When a gambler talks of under over tips for betting, goals are on his mind eight times out of ten. However, that’s not all what online bookmakers offer nowadays, and so Takebet South Africa gives out under over predictions for soccer stats too: yellow cards, corners, free kicks, shots on target, etc.

Apart from the object of a bet, there are few other classifications for soccer totals.

Given the settlement, over under soccer bets are classified in three types:

  • Standard totals (multiple of 0.5)
  • Square totals (multiple of 1)
  • Two-part totals (multiple of 0.25)

Another classification of over under soccer betting market is based on “who” and “when”:

  • Half totals
  • Individual totals (for a team or a player)

Most of our soccer under over betting picks come in the form of one to three single bets per article. Odds of such wagers span from 1.50 (-200 American; 1/2 Fractional) to 3.00 (+200; 2/1) on most occasions, however they may be lower or higher if there is value to it. Accumulator soccer over under betting tips are offered too, though experts drop this type of picks rarely.

Over under soccer betting tips explained: goals and more

Over under goals tips are forecasts for a number of goals scored in a soccer match to be greater or smaller than a margin chosen by a sports bettor. Given that on average teams score from two to three goals in total, over/under 2.5 goals predictions are the basic ones.

In prematch, the margins are as follows for over and under soccer goal predictions:

  • 0.5
  • 0.75 (0.5, 1)
  • 1
  • 1.25 (1, 1.5)
  • 1.5
  • 1.75 (1.5, 2)
  • 2
  • 2.25 (2, 2.5)
  • 2.5
  • 2.75 (2.5, 3)
  • 3
  • 3.25 (3, 3.5)
  • 3.5
  • 3.75 (3.5, 4)
  • 4
  • 4.25 (4, 4.5)
  • 4.5
  • 4.75 (4.5, 5)
  • 5
  • 5.25 (5, 5.5)
  • 5.5

When it comes to live betting, betting picks can have margins of over 5.5.

Soccer match over under total tips are fundamental bets on the total of events happening through the whole regulation time of a soccer match (90 minutes and added minutes in both halves), be it goals scored, yellow cards shown, corners launched or else. Results of each team are summed up to settle such a bet. Under over 2.5 betting tips on goals are the most basic.

Example: you bet on the goal total being over 2.5 in a PSG vs Bayern Munich game. PSG win 2:1, thus both teams score three goals in total. That is more than 2.5, so you win the bet.

Mind that the results don’t matter, only the number of chosen events — goals in this case.

A sports gambler can either win or lose a bet on a total which is a multiple of 0.5. Square totals (e.g. 1 goal or 3 goals) and quarter totals multiple of 0.25 (e.g. 1.25 goals, that can also be written down as 1, 1.5 goals) have one big difference to them — they may bring you a refund. These two types of totals are what most people call Asian under over soccer tips for betting.

Soccer square over under total picks are basically the same as the standard ones, but if the actual number of goals is exactly equal to your chosen total margin, then you get a refund.

Example: you bet on the goal total being under 2 in a Chelsea vs Liverpool match. The Londoners win 2:0, which is two goals scored. It is neither over nor under, but equal to your chosen margin. This outcome gets you a refund, while three or more goals would mean a loss.

Soccer quarter under over totals are two totals merged into one bet, with your stake being halved between those two totals. Afterwards, both halves are settled as usual. One can write down such a total either as a multiple of 0.25 (e.g. 3.25) or a two-part total (e.g. 3, 3.5).

Example: you bet on a goal total being over 1.25 (or 1, 1.5) in a Real Madrid vs Barcelona game. Madrid win 1:0. Your stake is divided in two for the settlement: a half goes on over 1 goal, another half goes on over 1.5 goal. The first one gets refunded and the second one is lost.

Individual soccer over under predictions are bets on individual goals of teams being higher or lower than a particular margin in the course of a complete soccer match or a separate half. All totals are otherwise the same as for both teams, but margins are essentially lower.

Example: you bet on the individual goal total of PSG being over 2 goals against Bayern Munich. The teams play 2-2. You get a refund, because PSG scored exactly two goals.

First and last half over under total tips are on either a game total or a team total being higher or lower than a particular margin chosen by a sports bettor. Everything else is the same.

Example: you bet on the first half to be over 0.5 goals in a Barcelona vs Espanyol match. The scoreline is 1-0 by half-time. You win the bet, because one goal scored is over 0.5 goals.

Over under 2.5 goals soccer tips for betting

Featuring the most basic type of soccer total bet, under over 2.5 predictions enjoy an overwhelming popularity with sports bettors all over the world. Betting odds of over and under 2.5 are usually very close and sometimes even equal, because the amount of goals in high-level professional soccer dwells around two or three on average. Meaning the chances are close.

Over 2.5 goals in soccer means three or more goals must be scored in a match for a bet to win. Under 2.5 goals means the two, one or zero goals should be the total number scored.

Example: you bet on the goal total to be under 2.5 in a Kaizer Chiefs vs Royal AM game. The Chiefs win 1:0, hence the amount of goals equals one, which is less than 2.5. So, you win.

Under over 2.5 goals predictions are mostly used when making soccer betting tips on Takebet South Africa, as we are arguably the best under 2.5 prediction site.

Soccer over under and win betting tips

Both outcomes must come true for such a bet to win.

Soccer over under and goalscorer betting tips

Another combined betting market showcases soccer predictions over under united with a bet on anytime goalscorer or on the first goalscorer. Example: under 2.5 goals and Kevin De Bruyne to score anytime. This means De Bruyne should score, and the total must be two or less.

Both outcomes must come true for such a bet to win.

Soccer over under and BTTS betting tips

Some of the best soccer predictions under/over are on a total of goals combined with a tip on both teams either scoring or not. Example: over 1.5 goals and both teams to score. In this case, you bet on at least two goals bagged and both teams scoring at least once during a match.

Both outcomes must come true for such a bet to win.

Accumulator over and under soccer predictions

For sure, some of the top over under soccer tips come as accumulators on Takebet South Africa. An acca is used by punters to combine two or more picks for different matches into a single bet.

How experts analyse soccer for best under/over predictions

There are several ways the soccer over under betting picks are analysed.

Let’s check out the first step which is looking up the top statistical points of both teams in their past games and how well they’ve performed. If the bet is around a goal total, the stats experts look out for include the average number of goals in the past few games, average expected goals and xG coverage, shots on target, big chances created, the number of goals conceded and defence performance. When choosing under over 2.5 goals soccer tips, Takebet South Africa checks for the formations the teams have used recently and if they are still probable to play the same way.

Secondly, we follow the team news to know the players available and sidelined for the game. The absence of key players can have its toll on the team, suspensions, injuries, etc. Experts check out the form of both teams, preferably their last five games. How many wins, draws and losses are there in these matches? Have the teams been unbeaten or winless? It helps to predict the outcome and pick a combined bet of soccer predictions over under and win.

Game importance also matters, if it is a derby or a big decisive match. Examples: Barcelona vs Real Madrid (El Clasico), Man United vs Man City (Manchester derby) or Roma vs Lazio (Rome derby). These games tend to be full of nerves, fouls, cards, shot attempts — and goals.

Head-to-heads are also important when getting ready under over 2.5 betting tips and other total picks, particularly the average number of goals scored in the current and the previous season. Mind that it is better to use official fixtures and take friendly meetings with a pinch of salt. Some teams average under 2.5 goals when they clash — as a punter, you have to take note of this.
