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.
