Know Everything About Over/Under Betting

Placing an over/under bet in football is predicting the number of occurrences of a specific event in a football match. It is the second most famous betting market after a three-way market. The popularity is attributed to the extensive options which bettors can choose from in over/under betting.

Which occurrences can you predict over/under in football betting?

The statistics of every football differ according to the complexity of the game. This allows you to predict the possible frequency in which the event occurs. The events you can predict Over/Under in football are;
  • Goals
  • Corners 
  • Bookings(yellow cards and red cards)

Over/under betting is a bizarre prediction because you get an opportunity to cheer all teams because your main focus is the occurrence count, not the final scoreline.

Over/Under Goals

Over Goals Prediction

Predicting the total number of goals to be scored in a football game is more straightforward than predicting the match result. If you place an over bet, say over 2.5, it merely means that the game's total goals will be three or more.
 
In the above fixture, predicting Over 2.5 Goals means that the total goals in the game should not be less than three.
 
Leicester won the game with a 2:1 scoreline, and kudos, it's a win. How simple! The bet is not dependent on any team to score. Even if Leicester or Brighton had won the game with a 3:0 or 4:0 scoreline, the win could stand since the goals are more than two.

Under Goals Prediction

With this market, you predict the maximum number of goals to be scored in a football match. Under goals, betting is riskier than over because it restricts you to a certain number of goals.

For instance, if Juventus is playing Inter Milan and you place an Under 2.5 Bet, to win, the total goals in this game must not exceed two. 
 
In the past 7 meetings between these teams, 5 out of seven games have ended up with two or fewer goals, meaning there is a higher chance of a similar score occurring.

Over/Under Corner Prediction

Betting on the number of corners is similar to predicting the number of goals. In an over corner bet, you predict the minimum possible number of corners and vice versa.
 
If you place an over 9 corners bet in this fixture between Sevilla and Barcelona, the game must see 10 or more corners for you to win the bet. It is a wise decision considering the attacking quality that these two teams have.

Betting on the exact number of corners is very risky because you will lose unless the game sees a total of 9 corners and thus the big odds.


For under corner betting, you predict the maximum number of goals in a game. With 8 or fewer corners in the game, you win.
 

Over/Under Bookings

Betting on the number of bookings is similar to predicting the number of goals or corners in a match. For over 4.5 yellow cards, the total number of yellow cards in the game must be 5 or more. If the prediction was under 4.5 yellow cards, you expect a maximum of 4 yellow cards in the game to win.
