Over 6.5 Goals Predictions

GUIDE

WHAT DOES OVER 6.5 GOALS MEAN?

Over 6.5 goals betting works the same way as Over 2.5 or Over 3.5 bets. It is part of the Over/Under football betting market and it's incredibly popular with fans.  

The bet essentially means that you must predict if the number of goals scored in a game will be more than or less than 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 5.5 or 6.5. 

You don't need to decide anything else. It doesn't matter which team scores the goals, what the exact scoreline is, or which footballer finds the back of the net.  

All you have to do is predict whether there will be more than 6.5 goals (7 or more) or less than 6.5 goals (6 or less) scored in the game. 

This is a great bet for fans who are looking for bigger odds on their bet. Generally, odds on the smaller O/U markets can be much lower. 

Over 6.5 goals betting works just like Over 2.5 goals market. However, the biggest difference is that the odds tend to be larger, because the likelihood of a football game ending Over 6.5 goals is a lot less than 2.5.

RISK VS REWARD

Typically, the odds on Over 6.5 goals will range from 6/1 up to 25/1 and even higher on occasions. 

The odds will depend on which two teams are playing. If two typically low-scoring teams are facing off, the odds on over 6.5 goals will be much higher because the chance of there being seven goals or more scored during the game is so slim.  

Just remember that odds reflect your chances of winning. So the higher the odds, the harder it is to win the bet. 

That is because few football games end Over 6.5 goals. Statistically though, some clubs and leagues are more likely to generate high-scoring games. 

Stats from the 22/23 season show that the Bundesliga, Dutch Eredivisie, and Norwegian top division are leagues worth exploring if you're looking for high-scoring games.

Below, we'll look at the top-scoring leagues and teams.

BEST LEAGUES FOR OVER 6.5 GOALS

Looking closely at the Over 6.5 stats, by league, we can see some patterns start to develop. 

We'll use the 2022/23 season statistics as our guide in this section. However, it's worth noting that these league and team trends can be used for the current season. You can get up-to-date stats at SoccerStats.com.

PREMIER LEAGUE

While the English Premier League is one of the most entertaining when it comes to big games and plenty of goals, statistically, it has few games with big scorelines.

On average, in the 22/23 campaign, just 3.9% of matches ended in Over 6.5 goals.

The 3.9% number is an overall league average. Yet, specific teams are involved in high-scoring matches more often than the league average.

The club with the highest percentage of games over 6.5 in the 2022/23 season was Liverpool at 13.15% and Spurs at 10.52%.

ELITESERIEN

The Norwegian Eliteserien league offers bigger opportunities for those looking to back the Over 6.5 goals market.

In 2022/23, approximately 6.3% of games ended in over 6.5. Alongside the Bundesliga (on 5.6%), this is one of the highest percentages in European football.

In particular, a few clubs were responsible for that high percentage rate. Six clubs scored over 6.5 goals in at least 10% of their games.

Viking and Sandefjord were the highest scoring (both on 13.33%). They were followed by Hamarkameratene, Lillestrøm, Bodø Glimt and Sarpsborg 08 (all scored over 6.5 goals in 10% of their games). 

In conclusion, the Eliteserien's Over 6.5 statistics for the 2022/23 season confirm its reputation as the place to find the highest-scoring games of the season.  

Just remember that if you fancy having a bet, the Norwegian League is structured differently to the English Premier League. 

The season runs from March to November in the same calendar year and with only 16 top-tier clubs, each team plays 30 matches.

LIGUE 1 (FRANCE)

The difference a goal can make is quite evident in the French Ligue 1. In the 22/23 season, the over 6.5 goal rate is just 3.2% compared to an Over 5.5 goal rate of 6.1%. 

Basically, the number of times that at least seven goals were scored in a game halved from the number of times over six goals were scored. 

While the league-wide figure stands at 3.2%, certain clubs dramatically skew this average with their high-scoring tendencies.

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Montpellier, both with a substantial 10.52% Over 6.5 goal rate, emerge as the standout culprits in this goal fest. This means that approximately one in every eight matches these teams play sees seven or more goals scored.

Other teams to keep an eye on are Lille and Monaco who have also had their fair share of high-scoring games. Both are on 7.89% which is roughly, one in eleven games. 

So keep an eye on the fixtures, specifically when these teams are paired against each other.

BUNDESLIGA

The Bundesliga's 5.6% Over 6.5 goal rate in the 22/23 season may seem subdued, but considering just how difficult it is to record at least 7 goals in a  game, it's pretty decent when compared to some of its other European counterparts. 

Throughout the season, several matches had significant goal tallies, highlighting the attacking prowess of the teams.

For example, Bayern Munich opened their campaign with a 6–1 victory against Eintracht Frankfurt and achieved a seven-goal victory over VfL Bochum. Borussia Dortmund also had a standout 6–1 win over Cologne.

Bayern's success can be attributed to their tactical flexibility, depth in quality players, and ability to perform under pressure.

Their style often involves pressing opponents high up the pitch, and with a strong midfield and solid defence, the result is high-scoring games. 

The Bundesliga's overall trend of big score-lines reflects a competitive and attacking style of play across the league.

EREDIVISIE (DUTCH)

The Eredivisie, renowned for its attacking flair and emphasis on technical skill, continued to be a paradise for goal enthusiasts in the 22/23 season with a notable 4.6% Over 6.5 goal rate.

While it's not quite as high as the Norwegian or German leagues, it is certainly higher than most of the other European leagues. It reinforces the Dutch league's reputation as a goldmine for high-scoring matches.

Delving deeper into club-specific stats, PSV Eindhoven emerges as the standout, boasting a staggering 17.64% Over 6.5 goal rate.

That is a phenomenally high statistic and roughly translates as one in every four or five games. 

While the Eredivisie as a whole is a beacon for goal-rich games, teams like PSV elevate the experience, turning weekends into goal feasts for fans and bettors alike.

FAQS

BETTING ON OVER 6.5 GOALS

What does "Over 6.5 goals" mean in betting?

It means that you are placing a bet on there being 7 or more total goals scored in a match. This includes goals from both teams combined.

Why would someone choose to bet on Over 6.5 goals?

Betting on Over 6.5 goals can offer better odds because it's relatively rare for matches to have so many goals. If you think a game will be particularly high-scoring, this bet can offer good value.

How is it different from Under 6.5 goals?

Betting on Under 6.5 goals means you expect the match to have 6 or fewer total goals. It's essentially the opposite prediction of Over 5.5. Given the majority of games end with less than 6 goals, the odds are so small that they offer absolutely no value at all.  

What factors should I consider before placing an Over 6.5 goals bet?

  • Team form: Are the teams involved in high-scoring matches recently?
  • Head-to-head records: Do these teams traditionally play high-scoring matches against each other?
  • Injuries/Suspensions: Are key defensive players missing?
  • Tactical approaches: Are the teams known for their attacking style?

Are there leagues more suitable for Over 6.5 goals betting?

Yes, certain leagues have a reputation for being high-scoring. It's crucial to research and identify these leagues and the teams within them that frequently participate in goal-heavy matches. For this specific market, the Norwegian, German and Dutch football markets tend to generate more games that end in over 6.5 goals. 

What are the risks of this betting type?

Due to the high number of goals required to win the bet, Over 6.5 goals is considered a higher-risk wager. Even in traditionally high-scoring leagues, matches with 7 or more goals aren't everyday occurrences.

Can I combine Over 6.5 goals with other betting markets?

Yes, many bookmakers allow combination or accumulator bets where you can combine Over 6.5 goals with other markets like Both Teams to Score, Match Result, or specific player markets.

How do I find statistics to help with Over 6.5 goals betting?

Many sports statistics websites and bookmakers offer detailed breakdowns of team performances, including how often matches involve Over 6.5 goals.

Do odds for Over 6.5 goals differ greatly between matches and leagues?

Absolutely. The likelihood of a match having 7 or more goals varies based on the teams involved, their style of play, and the league's general character.

Should I consistently bet on Over 6.5 goals?

Like all forms of betting, it's essential to be strategic. Diversify your bets and ensure you're basing your decisions on solid research rather than emotion or gut feeling.

Only 3.9% of English Premier League games end with that scoreline so you could end up wagering a lot more than you would win.
