Over/Under 0.5 Goals Explained
Over/under 0.5 goals is a betting market in which punters bet on the total number of goals (both teams) scored in a match. Over/under 0.5 goals bets cover 90 minutes plus additional time, but not extra time.
You will find over 0.5 goals and under 0.5 goals markets on almost every online bookmaker, but, some bookies offer higher odds than others. Check out our betting margins tests to see which betting sites offer the lowest margins (highest odds) for over/under markets.
As the over/under goal markets are two-way markets you will see the markets presented in a decimal format such as 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 etc. This is done so there are no draws or refunds, you will either win or lose your bet.
For example, if you bet on over 2.5 goals, you need there to be 3 or more goals in the match for you to win. 2 goals or fewer, and you lose the bet.
Over 0.5 Goals Explained
Over 0.5 goals is a bet on a game having 1 or more goals scored in 90 minutes (plus additional time). Goals scored by either team count towards this betting market, and this bet will only lose if the game finishes goalless (0-0). As most games have at least one goal, the betting odds will always be quite short on over 0.5 bets.
Under 0.5 Goals Explained
Under 0.5 goals is a bet on the game having 0 goals scored in the match. The under 0.5 market applies to a full game (90 minutes + additional time) but does not include extra time. Also, all goals scored by both teams towards this market, and just 1 goal by either side will cause this bet to lose.
