Over 2.5 goals & Under 2.5 goals Tips
Whether goalfest or snoozefest, get the latest football betting tips on over/under 2.5 goals for each round of fixtures from our expert tipsters. Placing one of these bets means you arebanking on three goals or more being scored, or fewer than three, depending on whether you have taken a punt on ‘Over’ or ‘Under’.
If our experts believe there will be goals galore, we’ll suggest you opt for an Over 2.5 goals bet, which means that as long as three or more goals are scored, you’re a winner.
It doesn’t matter which team or what the final score is, as long as the ball hits the back of the net three times or more.
Likewise, for Under 2.5 goals picks, there needs be two goals or fewer for you to claim the crown come final whistle. Whether it’s a 0-0 snoozefest or a 2-0 scalp for the home side, as long as there’s only two goals maximum, the win is yours.
How does over/under 2.5 goals betting work?
You simply select your game, then choose to back ‘over 2.5 goals today’ or ‘under 2.5 goals today’ as you see fit or as we suggest with one of our tips. Your bet is in action as soon as the first ball is kicked and you cannot withdraw it (although at most online bookies you should be free to cash out at any stage).
With an ‘over 2.5 goals’ bet your bet is a loser until the third goal is scored, at which point your bet becomes a winner and your sportsbook pays out. With an ‘under 2.5 goals’ bet your bet is a winner until the third goal is scored, at which point it becomes a loser.
What are the advantages of over/under 2.5 bets?
The main advantage of betting over 2.5 goals is that once it becomes a winner, it stays a winner. This is different to single bets that can become winners (when the side you are betting on takes the lead) and then losers (when the side you are betting on is pulled level or goes behind).
Once an over 2.5 goals bet wins, it cannot then lose. An under 2.5 goals bet automatically starts off as a winning bet and continues to be a winner until the third goal of the game is scored, at which point it becomes a losing bet, which it will remain.
Over/under 2.5 goals betting strategy
You may think most football matches have at least three goals, but that’s not actually the case. In fact, the most common football score of all time is a 1-1 draw, which of course is fewer than 2.5 goals.
The best games to bet on are when two teams that are both high-scoring and high-conceding meet up. If prolific attacks meet leaky defences at both ends of the pitch, then the chances are that more than three goals will be scored. These are the types of games we look for when it comes to selecting our over/under 2.5 goals predictions.
How can I back over/under 2.5 goals predictions?
Once you have signed in to an online bookie at which you are a member, scroll through the various menus until you get to the football section. Find the entry in the rows of fixtures for the game you wish to wager upon.
At the right-hand side of the fixture details, you should find a number denoting the amount of markets available on the game. Click this to be taken through to the game’s specific page. Scroll down until you find ‘2.5 goals’ – you should find buttons for ‘under’ and ‘over’. Click on the appropriate button to add the wager to your bet slip, then set the amount you have chosen to gamble with.
Where can I find the best over/under 2.5 goals predictions?
We analyse every forthcoming game, following teams that tend to score a lot and looking out for games against teams that tend to concede a lot. It’s helpful if high-scoring teams tend not to be too bothered about keeping clean sheets, as that increases the chances of any game in which they are involved containing at least three goals.
For under 2.5 goals tips, we search for teams with tight defences and goal-shy attacks coming up against sides who are hard-wired to do the same. We particularly look for sides that have a habit of grinding out 1-0 wins or draw 1-1 when away from home.
