Over 5.5 Goals Means

A commonly asked question about over/under 5.5 goals betting is what exactly does it mean? You can’t have half a goal in football, so it’s easy to see why people can get confused.

To keep things simple, over 5.5 goals means 6 goals or more to be scored. This is a 90 minutes (and stoppage time) bet only, so the 30 minutes extra time you get in cup ties wouldn’t count towards this bet.

So any match that finished 3-3, 6-0, 4-2, 5-5, etc, would be over 5.5 goals, as they all had 6 or more goals scored in it.

A match that finished 4-1, 3-2, or 1-0, would lose, as it had less than 5.5 goals scored.

Over 5.5 Goals Odds

The odds on over 5.5 goals would be fairly long. Typically, high scoring dominant teams like Barcelona, Manchester City, PSG, Bayern Munich, the odds would be around 3/1 to 6/1, depending on the opposition.

For a bog standard match like Crystal Palace V Tottenham Hotspur, the odds would be around 14/1.

Under 5.5 Goals Means

The flip side to overs is under 5.5 goals. A bet on under 5.5 goals is a bet on there being less than 6 goals in the match. So this means any scoreline with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 goals scored in it, would be under 5 goals.

So scores like 3-2, 5-0, 1-1, 1-0, 2-0, 4-1, would all be under 5.5 goals, as there is less than 6 goals scored.

Predicting under 5.5 goals is far easier than making over 5.5 goals predictions. This means the odds on under 5.5 goals are much shorter. To the point where some bookmakers don’t even offer odds on under 5.5 goals.

Under 5.5 goals odds on teams like PSG would be typically around 1/8. These odds would also apply to the likes of Man City, Barca, etc.
