Over/Under 1.5 Goals is a popular football bet used mainly in accumulator bets. The odds on Over 1.5 Goals are usually very short, meaning you would need to put them in an accumulator to get any value. While if you back Unders, you will usually get good odds.
Over 1.5 Goals Means
A bet on Over 1.5 Goals is a bet on there being 2 goals or more scored in the match. Winning scorelines would be 1-1, 2-0, 0-2, 3-1, 4-2, 6-0, 7-1, etc. Any scoreline with 2 goals or more in would win.
Under 1.5 Goals Means
If you have a bet on Under 1.5 goals, then you would need less than 2 goals to be scored to win. So winning scorelines would be 0-0, 1-0, or 0-1.
This is a 90 minutes (plus stoppage time) bet only. So if a match goes to 30 minutes extra time (like in cup ties), the extra time wouldn’t count. The 90 minutes scoreline is used to determine the outcome of the bet.

Over/Under 1.5 Goals Spread Betting
The main spread betting firm on football is Sporting Index. They have a Total Goals spread betting market, but not a specific 1.5 Goals market. The Total Goals market is the only goals market available and is generally based on around the 3 goals mark (for the average match).
For example, you can Sell at 2.9 Goals, or Buy at 3.10 Goals. Selling at 2.9 would be a bet on Under 3 Goals, while Buying at 3.10 would be a bet on 4 goals or more.
Over/Under 1.5 Goals Betting Odds
The odds on Over 1.5 Goals are fairly short, they are generally about 2/9 for the average football match, and a lot shorter for a match involving a team like Barcelona or Bayern Munich.
To make money from these odds, you would probably need to pick a few matches you expect will have goals, and put them in an accumulator bet.
The odds on Under 1.5 Goals are usually around the 11/4 to 3/1 mark. Again, if teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid are involved, these odds will be a good bit longer.
At odds of 11/4 or 3/1, you can place single bets at half decent odds. An Under 1.5 goals double or treble would represent a very good payout.
