Markets explanation: Over & Under

Over/Under markets makes you betting on a number of goals you think will be scored in a match. You don’t need to guess the correct number of the goals in the event, but rather whether the final number will be over or under the line set by the bookmaker. The standard number is 2.5 goals, so if you’re backing there to be over that amount of goals in a match, the minimum you are hoping for are three goals to be scored, with anything under that amount resulting in a loss. It works in reverse, as betting on under 2.5 goals would mean that a maximum of two goals could be scored in a fixture for the bet to win.
