Match result and Over/Under betting explained

Match result and over/under betting explained is a tutorial that will show you how to successfully combine 2 betting markets in a single bet. From what is the Match Result and Over/Under in football betting to which is the best way to place match results and over/under bets, we got it all covered.

What is Match Result and Over/Under in football betting?

Match result and over/under is a special bet that combines 2 markets into a single bet:

  • the final result
  • the total goals

In other words, to win a match result and over/under bet you need to accurately predict the final result using a win/draw/lose pick and how many goals will be scored using the over/under option. Regarding the goals, it makes no difference which teams score.

Match result & over/under betting options explained

You have many options to pick from when you consider placing a match result and over/under bet. Also, some bookies will use the classic 1×2 instead of the match result term.

While some options are more realistic, others have a very low probability of occurring.

Let’s take the Seria A clash between AS Roma and Torino as an example to break down the most common picks and their meaning.

Match result and Over/Under betting explained

  • Roma & Over 1.5 goals will be a winning bet if Roma wins and at least 2 goals will be scored in the match (2-0, 2-1, 3-1, 3-2 etc)
  • Draw & Over 1.5 goals could pocket your money if the game ends undecided with a minimum of 2 goals on the scoreboard (1-1, 2-2, 3-3 etc)
  • Torino & Over 1.5 goals (0-2, 1-2,0-3 etc) would be a major upset at Olimpico, hence the high odds attributed (5.80)
  •  Roma & Under 3.5 goals is the most probable outcome according to odds (1-0, 2-0, 3-0, 2-1)
  • Draw & Over 2.5 goals is priced the same as Draw & Over 3.5. That is because both options refer to the same outcome (2-2, 3-3, 4-4 etc)
  • Torino & Over 4.5 goals would be a shock in the Serie A. The bookie is offering very high odds (27) for such an outcome (2-3,1-4,0-5 etc)
