Under 3.5 Goals explained
Placing your bet on Under 3.5 goals means you are expecting that there will be 3 goals or less scored in the match. Basically, if the game ends 0-0, 1-0, 1-1, 2-0, 2-1 and 3-0, you have won your bet.
In contrast, a bet on Over 3.5 goals implies that there must be 4 or more goals scored at the end of the match. This applies to score lines such as 2-2, 3-1, 3-2, 4-2, 4-3, 4-4, etc.
Betting on Under 3.5 goals is a common selection when it comes to predicting the total number of goals that will be scored at the end of a game. It offers reasonable odds and more realistic chances of winning. It can be considered as a very safe bet because it offers too many possible goal scoring outcomes for a bet to be won.
Apart from betting on the total number of goals at full time, other possible ways of winning with bigger odds include betting on the goals that would be scored at the end of each half. In this case, you can bet on total goals at the end of first half being less than 4 or predict that the second half would produce less than 4 goals.

This means you are predicting that at the end of the match the home or the away team would score less than 4 goals.

Team form and style of play
Some teams go on a poor run of form during which they do not score lots of goals. In some cases, some teams have adopted a conservative and pragmatic style of football which means they play a defensive pattern of football. This style makes it almost impossible to score or concede too many goals. Also, there are teams that prefer winning a match with a slim margin rather than scoring too many goals. A match between Chelsea and Brighton for example is more likely to produce under 3.5 goals than a game between Bayern Munich and RB Salzburg.
A quick look at historical statistics and head-to-head facts will provide a good insight into the kind of teams that are likely to score less than 4 goals in a match. There are head-to-head stats that provide in-depth information about teams that usually score fewer goals regardless of the full time result. Apart from being traditionally defensive, there are teams that adopt a defensive tactic based on what is at stake in a particular match. Games like these are often decided by 2-0, 1-0, 0-0 or 1-1 score line, all of which are examples of under 3.5 goals.
The number of goals that will be scored in a match can sometimes be determined by the availability of some players for the game. There are teams that depend on certain forwards or midfielders for creativity, creation of chances and scoring of goals. The absence of some players through suspension or injuries will make it hard for such teams to score plenty goals. It is therefore important to look at the probable/actual lineup before placing your over/under 3.5 bets.
