What Are First Half Over/Under 1.5 Goals Coupons?
First Half Over/Under 1.5 Goals coupons are popular coupons both online and in store that involve betting on the number of goals to be scored in the first half of a football match.
This coupon specifically involves betting on whether you believe there will be over or under 1.5 goals scored in the first half. This is the total number of goals from both teams combined.
If you bet Over 1.5 Goals then a minimum of two must be scored in the first half, whereas if you bet Under 1.5 Goals then to win there must be one goal or less.
For example, let’s say you wished to play this coupon with William Hill on a game between Manchester United and Leicester.
The odds on this market will look a little as follows:
Under 1.5 Goals: 2/5
Over 1.5 Goals: 7/4
In this instance you might wish to bet on over 1.5 goals to be scored in the first half. That means if you were to bet on it and the result was a draw at half time, it would have to be at least 1-1. If a team was winning, the game would have to be at least 2-0 to a team as both results produce a combined total of over 1.5 goals.
If you were to be on the under market then the half time result could only possibly be 0-0 or 1-0 to either Manchester United or Leicester.
Within the coupon you’ll find a number of fixtures for the weekend or the matchday and you can play this market as either singles, doubles or even craft an accumulator.
