Over – Under or Over/Under bet is a wager in which a sportsbook will predict a number for a statistic in a given game (usually the combined score of the two teams), and bettors wager that the actual number in the game will be either higher or lower than that number. Generally in football, the bookmakers set 2.5 goal as the line and the punters choose Under 2.5 goals or Over 2.5 goals.
The second most popular football market on Sportsbook is undoubtedly the Over/Under 2.5 Goals market; all you have to decide is whether a game of football will contain three goals or more, or two goals or less. It sounds simple, but it isn’t. Given that the overall stats for football as a whole show that the average game of football averages somewhere between 2.4 and 2.6 goals per game (depending of course on the league or competition in question) both Over 2.5 Goals and Under 2.5 Goals should be available to back at around the 2.0 mark, and quite often this will be the case.

It means you will win or lose your stake at the end of 90 minute time. You have 50% chance to win the bet. No extra-time or penalty shoot outs after 90 minute counts for this type of bet. It is the same with any other sports. However, the lines are different from soccer. Remember, a little bit of effort can reap big rewards.
