Sports Brief delves deeper into over 1.5 predictions, offering valuable insights and tips for achieving success in this specific market.

We will begin by exploring the fundamentals of over 1.5 betting, demystifying the workings of odds, and equipping you with effective strategies to optimize your outcomes in this betting arena.

What is Over 1.5 Prediction?

The "Over 1.5 prediction" falls under the category of over/under betting, where the bettor anticipates that the total number of goals scored in a match will exceed 1.5. In practical terms, for this bet to succeed, a minimum of two goals must be scored during the match.

This particular prediction enjoys popularity due to its favorable risk-reward balance. It proves to be more predictable than over 2.5 or over 3.5 predictions, which necessitate a higher goal count. Nevertheless, it still provides respectable odds compared to betting on the outright winner of a match.

Top 4 bets for Sunday: Over 1.5 Goals

Everton v Arsenal - Over 1.5 goals

The home team, Everton, have seen only two of their opening four league games feature over 1.5 match goals. However, recent signings toward the end of the transfer window may have the potential to improve their somewhat lacklustre goal-scoring record this season.

On the other side, the visiting team, Arsenal, aims to continue their unbeaten run at the beginning of the season. They have been part of three games out of their last four league matches that saw over 1.5 match goals.

Twente v Ajax - Over 1.5 goals

FC Twente, the home team, seek to maintain their perfect record with four wins in their opening four league games this season. Meanwhile, Ajax, the visiting team, enters the match unbeaten in their last three league games, albeit with two draws in that streak. They are eager to secure some victories.

Predicting a winner in this matchup is challenging, but we anticipate both teams putting in a strong effort to secure three points. We would be surprised if there were fewer than two goals in this game.

Bournemouth v Chelsea - Over 1.5 goals

Bournemouth registered a 2:2 draw in their last match when visiting Brentford in the Premier League on September 2. The outfit has not suffered a defeat in two successive outings, ending in 1 victory and one draw.

On the other hand, Chelsea’s last match was against Nottingham Forest, and it finished in a 0:1 loss at home. However, three of the Blues' five previous meetings finished with more than 2.5 goals and three saw both sides finding the net.

Olympique Lyon vs. Le Havre - Over 1.5 goals

Lyon's beginning to the 2023/24 season has been abysmal, leading to the dismissal of their manager. The seven-time French champions currently occupy the bottom spot in Ligue 1 after suffering three defeats in their initial four games. Remarkably, three of these matches witnessed Over 1.5 Goals.

On the other hand, newcomers Le Havre have managed to secure a solitary victory in their first four matches, all of which have featured Over 1.5 Goals.
