What is Over 2.5 Goals betting?

Exactly what it says on the tin! Betting on Over 2.5 Goals is betting on three or more goals to be scored in the match. The goals can be scored by either team, so 3-0 pays out just as 2-1 does, or indeed if there are more than three goals - whether the match finishes 2-2, 2-1, 0-8, 4-4 or any other high-scoring result! 

The reason the bookmakers have named this bet as Over 2.5 Goals rather than simply 'over 2 goals' is to avoid confusion as to whether this does or does not include matches that have finished with two goals. The decimal point makes this easier to understand.

Can I bet on under 2.5 goals or other numbers?

Yes of course! Most bookmakers will offer odds of under or over 0.5 goals, right up to under or over 5.5 goals or even higher in some cases. Over 1.5 Goals accumulators of 10 or more matches, for example, offer good value and are growing in popularity.

Where should I place my Over 2.5 Goals bets?

Almost every bookmaker on the planet will offer you an Over 2.5 Goals coupon or the chance to individually bet on over 2.5 goals in each game! We've scoured some of the top bookmakers to let you know how to place Over 2.5 Goals bets at each of them.

Paddy Power possess one of the easiest-to-navigate sportsbooks around. Head to the Football Betting page via the 'Quick Links' menu on the left-hand side. From here, click the 'Coupons' tab and you will find sections for both Over/Under 1.5 Goals and Over/Under 2.5 Goals.


Unfortunately, there is no Over 2.5 Goals coupon available on the Ladbrokes website. As such, you will have to head into each match individually and head to the 'Goals' tab across the top, where you will find the odds for all over and under bets.

Sky Bet

Sky Bet provide an easy link to their Football section with the 'Popular Sports' heading on the left menu. This will take you to the Football section and if you scroll down the left hand side of the page you will see all of the available coupons. Click the 'See More' button to bring up both the Under/Over 1.5 Goals coupon and the Under/Over 2.5 Goals coupon.

Stylised as O/U 2.5 goals on the BetVictor site, you can find their coupon by heading to the football section of the Sportsbook and then clicking on the O/U 2.5 goals link via the 'Popular Markets' on the left-hand side menu.

William Hill have all the available sports to bet on across the top page of the sportsbook. Clicking on football here will give you options including 'Daily Match Lists' and 'Coupons.'
