What does Over 1.5 Goals mean?
If you bet on over 1.5 goals in a match, you are betting on there to be 2 goals scored as of course you can’t score half a goal in football. This is used by the bookmakers to make sure there are only two outcomes of a bet (Win/lose) as opposed to three (win/lose/push).
You would only lose your bet if the game finished 0-0, 1-0, or 0-1.
The same is true for over 2.5, 3.5 or 4.5 goals, just that the number of goals in the 90 minutes needing to be scored increase.
