The latest Over 2,5 Goals predictions

28/06/2024

Brann - Strømsgodset

This is a fairly one-sided matchup in the hosts’ favour. While there may be a tiny chance of a draw or even an upset, we wouldn’t count on it. Brann winning is by far the most likely outcome.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Strømsgodset stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 7.85, marking an insurmountable difference. read more

Odd - Kristiansund

Odd are easily the favourites in the match this Friday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.08 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Kristiansund may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

From the present perspective, the situation is evident. Considering the strength of Odd and the fact that Kristiansund are given 3.40 odds to win, it is clear tha... read more

Sandefjord - HamKam

Sandefjord might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as HamKam are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

The matchup this Thursday is rather one-sided, with HamKam seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.57, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Lillestrøm - KFUM

Lillestrøm should not have bigger problems running away with three points in this match if they stick to their game plan. However, KFUM can be a tough nut to crack and the home side need to be on top of their game.

KFUM appear severely unprepared for a clash with Lillestrøm, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 3.78 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Djurgården - Hammarby

Though we can call Djurgården the favourites in this matchup, Hammarby are not about to make it easy for them. It’s gearing up to be an exciting match overall, and no outcome can be ruled out at this point.

Hammarby will have little to hope for in this match. 4.33 betting odds on them winning paint a pretty clear picture and from this standpoint there is little doubt in regard to the outcome of this clash.

Värnamo - Mjällby

The visiting team is cognizant of the task before them. A victory over Värnamo on their home field would be a noteworthy accomplishment, and it is never an easy feat.

Despite playing away, Mjällby are more likely to win this showdown than the hosts. It’s not a done deal, of course. Considering the betting odds for an away win are set at 2.34, we’re in for a close game.

Strømsgodset - Odd

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Strømsgodset are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Odd and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.70.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Odd seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.81, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

KFUM might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as Sandefjord are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

The visiting team understands the difficulty of the task that lies ahead. A win against KFUM on their own field would be a major feat, and it is always a tough endeavor.

Tromsø are easily the favourites in the match this Sunday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.14 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Lillestrøm may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

Things are looking problematic for the visiting side. They are going up against a stronger team which also has a home pitch advantage. Victory is still within reach – they’ll just have to work harder than... read more

Genk - Gent

Though Genk are the favourites between these two teams, this is a fairly balanced matchup. All three possible outcomes of a Result bet are quite possible, which at least means we may get to see an exciting game.

The visiting team knows that beating Genk on their own turf will be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

Although Genk are coming on the back of a harsh 2:0 loss, it would be rather unfair to judge them purely on that performance. They were p... read more

Rosenborg - Fredrikstad

Fredrikstad will give Rosenborg a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.25 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

The visitors are fully aware of the challenge that lies ahead. A win against Rosenborg on their home field would be a significant achievement, and it is never an easy task.

Most betting predictions saw Rosenborg as the sure winners in the previous round – th... read more

Atalanta - Fiorentina

The online bookies marked Atalanta as the favourites, which makes a lot of sense. Still, we wouldn’t put Fiorentina winning beyond them – not to mention that draws are a strong possibility in relatively balanced games.

At 4.28 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive La Violaread more

IFK Göteborg - Elfsborg

Beating Elfsborg will not be easy, but we believe IFK Göteborg are more than capable of doing so. The matchup is somewhat balanced, after all, so all three possible outcomes are still on the table.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Elfsborg are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

The hosts will be keen to forget their previous Allsvenskan game. IFK Göteborg thought they were... read more

The visitors understand the difficulty of the task at hand. To beat Halmstad on their own turf would be a major feat, and it is always a tough challenge.

Despite playing away, GAIS are more likely to win this showdown than the hosts. It’s not a done deal, of course. Considering the betting odds for an away win are set at 2.26, we’re in for a close game.

Sirius - Norrköping

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Norrköping are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Sirius should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

The odds are stacked heavily against Norrköping here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Sirius are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 3.78.

The home side is eager to bounce back from ... read more

This is a fairly one-sided matchup in the hosts’ favour. While there may be a tiny chance of a draw or even an upset, we wouldn’t count on it. København winning is by far the most likely outcome.

With a price of 7.57 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Randers will likely not fare well against København. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

Mjällby have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Häcken. They are widely considered to be the weaker team – though the difference is not huge, to be fair. Overall, it’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown.

Häcken are heading into a difficult fight, but it’s far from hopeless. They may need to bring their best, but the match can go any way at this point. The odds of an away win are 2.64 right now, which means th... read more

With 2.42 on home win, the ground is level and three points are everyone’s to take. However, we’d still recommend backing Tromsø who should end up victorious in the end against Fredrikstad.

The visitors are aware of the challenge that awaits them. To come out on top against Tromsø on their own field would be a major achievement, and it is always a tough task.

Malmö FF - Elfsborg

Elfsborg will have little to hope for against Malmö FF. The home charges are bursting with confidence and it would take a small miracle for the away team to take anything from this game.

This one has Home Win written all over it. The hosts are expected to grab a firm hold of the proceedings and Elfsborg will be left with slim pickings in this match.

Malmö FF have shown to know how to seize an opportunity and keep it going. Just last round they secured a decisive 5:0 victory on... read more

An away win in this match would be a huge surprise and an equally big achievement for Värnamo who could consider themselves fortunate if they run away with a point in the bag.

More about Over 2,5 Goals Predictions

    Deciding to get into betting and starting off your online punting career can seem like a daunting task. Opening those markets for the first time can cause some confusion with all the different options and numbers.

    It is not at all uncommon for beginners to feel disheartened after losing their first few tips. Thankfully, this can be helped: all you need is a firm grasp of the mechanics of it all. That’s why BetingFellow is here to help; this comprehensive guide will provide you with the basics of Over 2.5 Goals, as well as some tips and strategies for Over 2.5 betting.

    More about Over 2,5 goals predictions

What Is Over 2.5 Goals Betting?

The basic concept here is fairly simple, but with a lot of room for nuance.

As the name might imply, what we’re looking at is the number of goals scored during a given football match. Specifically, for an Over 2.5 Goals bet to win, the match must end with 3 or more goals scored total.

Importantly, it does not matter which team scored them. When they scored them is also completely irrelevant – as long as the numbers on the scoreboard at the end of a game are higher than 3 total, the bet wins.

So now you must be thinking, why is it called 2.5 Goals if you actually need 3 goals to win? Besides, you can’t score half a goal in a football match.

This numbering system was implemented to avoid any confusion about which betting tips win and which do not. It’s important to consider that an Over 2.5 Goals bet can never be a “draw”. You either win it or you don’t.

Were it called “Over 3 Goals”, for example, punters might not immediately know what happens if exactly 3 goals were scored during a game. So if we were to get rid of the imaginary half-goal, this type of betting would have to be called “Over But Not Exactly 2 Goals”, or something equally silly. The solution might not be ideal, but it’s certainly the best option.

There are also occasionally variations of this market like Over 1.5 Goals and Over 3.5 Goals. These are less popular but work pretty much the same, so most of this guide can be applied to those as well.

It is also important to note that this market is exclusive to football betting because it is tailored to football’s scoring. Other sports might have markets that work similarly, but in this guide, we’ll be focusing on football.

Why Bet on Over 2.5 Goals?

There are some advantages to Over 2.5 Goals tips. We’ll list some of them here for you to consider when filling out your next betting slip.

Similarly to many other types of betting that are not the classic To Win tip, Over 2.5 Goals bets have consistent odds of winning until the very end of the game. No matter the current score or time, a goal or two more is still possible, especially because it doesn’t matter which side makes them.

Additionally, once a match has more than 3 goals on the scoreboard, the bet wins and can’t lose anymore. No more sudden comebacks where your team loses in the last few minutes of injury time!

Another advantage is that you’re not really relying on a team to perform. We all have off-days, and even the best of teams occasionally slip up, which is what makes betting so hard to predict. This can actually be good for Over 2.5 Goals bets. We’ll touch on that a bit more, later in our Over 2.5 Goals betting tips.

Over 2.5 Goals is also statistically better than a lot of other types of betting. Firstly – there are only two possible outcomes. Secondly, the number 2.5 (Or 3, if you prefer) is a nice middle-ground between the likelihood of it happening and a reasonable payout. That’s why it’s more popular than Over 1.5 or 3.5.

How to Bet on Over 2.5 Goals?

As previously mentioned, an Over 2.5 Goals bet can only win or lose – there’s no ‘draw’ option here. As such, you can also bet that less than 2.5 goals will be scored during a match. This type of bet is called Under 2.5 Goals. Check out our in-depth guide to Under 2.5 Goals betting if you want to find out more.

Concerning Over 2.5 Goals alone, there’s not a lot to worry about when wanting to make them. Just select the match you want to place your wager on, and choose the Over 2.5 Goals market.

We’d also like to point out that, due to the relatively safe nature of these bets, the returns are severely limited as well. These two aspects make them great candidates for accumulators, though!

How to Choose Matches to Bet on Over 2.5 Goals?

To be blunt, there’s no easy trick or shortcut to figuring out which matches are the best candidates. It takes research that has to be performed on a match-by-match basis. However, we can point you in the right direction so you know what to look for in a match for Over 2.5 Goals.

Luckily, there’s a way of making this easier. A lot of betting strategies for Over 2.5 Goals are also applied to Both Teams To Score, and vice versa. If you want to find out more, you can find our Both Teams To Score guide right here on BettingFellow.

So, like BTTS, you want teams who play aggressively, but often leak a lot of goals as well. Unlike BTTS, however, you don’t really care if this is the case for both teams. This means that picking matches where one team has a considerable advantage is not a bad idea.

In terms of leagues, the major European national leagues seem to have the best odds of going over 2.5 Goals. The statistics show that the best leagues for this type of bet are the Scandinavian leagues and the Dutch Jupiler League. The biggest teams in the world also seem to consistently be solid options, for better or worse. You know – Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, etc. All of these quite often confirm the Over 2.5 Goals market.

Where to bet on Over 2.5 Goals?

Truthfully, there’s no such thing as a bookmaker “specialising” in a single market or type of bet. This means that the best place for Over 2.5 Goals is usually the best place for any type of bet. The odds will not be very different in terms of quality within a single sportsbook, but they can vary greatly between different bookmakers. Betting promotions are also something to be factored in. Once again, research is key to getting the most out of your online betting experience. You need to compare all of the available online bookies in order to find the one that suits your needs best. Do not worry, you won’t need to visit and sift through all of them individually – BettingFellow has a handy list which ranks all of the world’s best online bookmakers.

We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the whole list, but in case you’re looking for a quick suggestion, here are a few:

William Hill. Widely considered one of England’s most reputable bookies, William Hill is a solid, reliable choice for all your betting needs. On top of that, their odds are really hard to beat. Ladbrokes. A famous bookmaker with more than a century of history, Ladbrokes offers some great innovations and promotions which pay off in the long run.

Bet365. A mainstay of any “best online bookmaker” list. If you’re not sure which betting site to go for – you can’t go wrong with Bet365.

Over 2.5 Goals Betting Tips

A little bit of knowledge can get you a long way with sports betting. Getting the information you need will require some digging, so here is some advice for Over 2.5 Goals bets.

Firstly, look at the average number of goals for both teams in the current season. If both or either of them averages only, say, 1 goal per match, it’s probably not a good idea to bet on Over 2.5 Goals.

You can also look at the percentage of games between the teams in question which confirmed the Over 2.5 market. Sometimes these can be as high as 80%, indicating a solid pick.

Speaking of stats, don’t forget to look at the head-to-head stats for the teams in question. Some teams tend to fare better or worse against others. For example, they might have trouble with getting through a specific opponent’s defence, even though the attack is usually the team’s strong suit. Such details might seem small, but are very important for any betting you might do.

You might also want to look at a team’s usual strategies and formations. 4-3-3, for example, is a typical attacking formation. Finding two teams who use such formations regularly can be used to your advantage.

Statistics are of key importance but are not the only thing you should consider. For example, try to think of any less “regular” factors that influence the number of goals in a match, such as: Match Context. Teams rarely give their best during friendly matches, but the number of goals can go through the roof for important derbies or playoff matches.

Whether the team has a home advantage can also impact performance, and thus goalscoring.

Whether all of a team’s lineup is present and participating. Key players missing from the defence can greatly hinder a team’s ability to prevent goals, for instance.

The turf and weather conditions. Hard to predict and may seem less important, these factors can still be used to your advantage.

Of course, all of these tips can be applied to Under 2.5 Goals betting as well. Just reverse them where necessary – Two defensive teams facing off in the mud and rain would be pretty good news here, as opposed to Over 2.5.

Over 2.5 Goals Betting Variations

As previously mentioned, the line of 2.5 occasionally varies upwards or downwards. These options can be useful if, for example, you’re absolutely positive a match will be packed with goals, in the case of Over 3.5. Stats for such cases are considerably less reliable, though.

Over 1.5, on the other hand, rarely offers good enough odds to be worthwhile.

There are also some other variations to the standard Over/Under formula. Here are some of the more common ones:

Home Win &Over 2.5/Away Win & Over 2.5. This basically combines the classic result bet with Over 2.5. Obviously, this can also be mixed with Under 2.5 to provide several different options.

Over/Under and Both Teams to Score. This bet tries to predict that the 3+ goals scored will be distributed between the two teams, with each scoring at least once.

Over 2.5 Goals Verdict

Summing up, Over 2.5 Goals is a type of market where statistics rule. Get to know your stats and how to read them, and this type of bet can be used to turn a tidy profit. We hope you found this Over 2.5 Goals betting tutorial helpful, and wish you good luck with future punting!
