But we always recommend you check the terms and conditions of each bookmaker you bet with, in case their terms and conditions are different from the norm. Many bookmakers set money lines to form over/under goals markets in many sports, and 1.5 goals is one of those money lines. Over/under 1.5 goals is a 2-way market, with the only two possible results being there are over 1.5 goals or under 1.5 goals. We recommend using the Asian lines if you are looking at safer live match bets. You can bet on over 1 goal line, and get a refund if there is just 1 goal, or a winner if there are 2+ goals. This is a particularly good market for half-time betting.
