Degerfors - Örebro

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

It’s highly unlikely that Örebro will manage to get some points this round. Degerfors are at a considerable advantage, so even a draw would be a success for the visitors.

Although Degerfors’s previous match ended in a draw, their supporters have a lot to be ha... read more

Varberg BoIS - Norrköping

It’s hard to see even the most ardent of Varberg BoIS fans expect a victory here. As clear underdogs, even a draw against Norrköping would be quite impressive, let alone an upset in the form of a home win.

With a price of 2.02 on them winning, Norrköping should definitely feel more confident going into this match. Of course, the difference is not insurmountable, so we’d say a draw is quite likely as well.

Varberg BoIS went into their previous game against Hammarby as cle... read more

Viking - Tromsø

Viking are expected to win here, but we can’t call such betting predictions completely foolproof. Tromsø may surprise us yet, and even a tie game seems a decent possibility from where we’re standing.

The visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 4.35 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

Although Viking are coming on the back of a harsh 5:0 loss, it would be rather unfair to judge... read more

FC Twente - ADO Den Haag

A quick look at the betting odds with some of the biggest bookmakers online is enough to tell you who the favourites are. Priced at 1.67, a home win seems the obvious choice. An upset is not quite impossible, mind you, which adds a small degree of risk but is ultimately food increasing profits.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with ADO Den Haag seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.80, which is enough to doubt such an outcome w... read more

RB Leipzig - Wolfsburg

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

Wolfsburg 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 3.50 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

Crystal Palace - Aston Villa

Though the match can honestly go either way, Crystal Palace will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 3.10 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

A difficult match is ahead of Aston Villa. They have a big fish to fry but we’ve seen them do it in the past and it’s certain they can do it again.

Crystal Palace are coming off from a harsh home defeat (3:1). Considering the difficult match-up against Southampton and the ho... read more

Olympique Marseille - Angers SCO

We don’t expect Olympique Marseille to have any issues beating Angers SCO. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.53 might actually be a good-value bet to consider. The visitors are not to be underestimated but on this particular instance the home side are seen as clear winners.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Angers SCO are given 8.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not ... read more

Milan - Cagliari

The home team is the obvious choice for anyone looking to bet on favourites. The match is not completely one-sided, though, which is why you may actually get worthwhile returns.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Cagliari stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 6.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

The latest showing from Milan can be called a tour de force. Torino ... read more

Bodø / Glimt - Rosenborg

Though Bodø / Glimt are more likely to win this, an away win would only be slightly surprising. It’s a relatively balanced matchup, which usually means we’ll see some exciting football.

While Rosenborg may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.25 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Feyenoord - RKC Waalwijk

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. Feyenoord winning is by far the most likely outcome.

RKC Waalwijk stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 7.35 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

The previous round for Feyenoord was quite uneventful, all things considered. The away game at ... read more

Nîmes - Olympique Lyonnais

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 8.25 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming Olympique Lyonnais.

Taking a 1.37 bet on an away game can often be risky but when it comes to Olympique Lyonnais ahead of their trip to Nîmes, this match can be a great addition to your betting slip.

Nîmes’s form seems to be quite strong if their most recent perfor... read more

Benevento - Crotone

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.53 is a solid option. That said, Crotone may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

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

Benevento’s painful defeat in their previous away match could have been seen from a mile away. They were facing Atalan... read more

Strømsgodset - Lillestrøm

Strømsgodset have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Lillestrøm. 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.

No outcome of this match would catch us by surprise. It’s a rarely fair matchup, though that’s not always good for betting. Currently, though, Lillestrøm are somewhat more likely to triumph with betting odds of 2.50 on them winning.

KV Oostende - Gent

Though KV Oostende definitely have a shot at winning this match, they’ll need to work for it. Gent are somewhat stronger, but the home-field advantage may be what the hosts need to shift the balance in their favour.

2.44 on an away match is what many punters run away from but Gent are a team capable of big things. Therefore, backing them in this match might not be a bad idea after all.

While KV Oostende’s previous loss will hurt their Pro League standings, it shouldn’t ha... read more

While Vitesse winning is still technically possible, we wouldn’t hold our breath. They are severely outmatched compared to Ajax, so even a draw result would be quite surprising.

The odds are clearly leaning in the away team’s favour, though the difference is by no means insurmountable. Vitesse will have to give their all to come out on top, though, while Ajax merely have to make sure not to make major mistakes.

Montpellier - Brest

Montpellier are definitely more likely to win, though all three possible results are quite reasonable to expect. This makes it hard to make reliable betting predictions when this match is concerned, though we may find some betting value.

Brest will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 2.90 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Parma - Sassuolo

A home win is not something we would recommend betting on at the odds of 5.75 – but you’re probably aware of that already. It would take a miracle for Parma to pull off even a draw, let alone a win as underdogs.

Considering the balance of power in this match, it seems that a draw may be the extent of the home team’s ambition. Sassuolo are at a clear advantage, which is reflected in the 1.63 odds for an away win 1X2 bet.

Molde are likely on their way to a decisive victory, and it’s hard to feel optimistic about the visitors’ prospects. Bookmakers are pricing a home win at 1.45, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Brann are given 7.50 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Though Deportivo Alavés are more likely to win this, an away win would only be slightly surprising. It’s a relatively balanced matchup, which usually means we’ll see some exciting football.

The odds are stacked heavily against Granada here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Alaves are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.50.

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

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

Willem II are here on the back of a convincing 1:4 away victory against ADO Den Haag in the previous round. They pla... read more

Paris Saint Germain - Reims

With betting odds working largely in their favour, Paris Saint Germain are expected to record a clean-cut victory in this match. We expected them to completely outclass Reims.

Considering what they’re up against, Reims can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 26.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

A lot is expected from Paris Saint Germain – certainly more than what they showed in the last away g... read more

Ufa - Arsenal Tula

Though we can call Ufa the favourites in this matchup, Arsenal Tula 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.

The away team’s chances of winning this Sunday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a matchup with Ufa, and the fact that they’re the visiting team isn’t making things any easier.

Although the result of last round’s bout was a 0:0 draw, Ufa displayed ... read more

With most bookies pricing a home win at 5.50, this is one of the more lopsided matches of the season. Needless to say, Athletic Bilbao don’t stand much of a chance at coming out on top.

Considering the balance of power in this match, it seems that a draw may be the extent of the home team’s ambition. Real Madrid are at a clear advantage, which is reflected in the 1.70 odds for an away win 1X2 bet.

Khimki - Sochi

With most bookies pricing a home win at 5.75, this is one of the more lopsided matches of the season. Needless to say, Khimki don’t stand much of a chance at coming out on top.

The most likely outcome of this match is Sochi walking away with three more points. That said, both a draw and a home win are still on the table, though both are relatively risky propositions.

Khimki are here after an exciting clash against Spartak Moskva in the previous round. The balance of power wa... read more

With the odds set at 1.30 for a home win, Atlético Madrid winning is clearly the most likely outcome in this matchup. Bigger upsets have happened, of course, but we wouldn’t expect anything but a decisive home win.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Osasuna will likely get overrun by their opponents with little hope of winning. Considering how one-sided this matchup is, they may want to cut their losses and focus their energy elsewhere.

LASK Linz are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Tipico Bundesliga, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 4.50, it’s not very likely to happen.

If everything goes according to plan and Salzburg put their best foot forward we expect to see an away win in this match.

Hamilton Academical managing to pull off a victory here would be quite the upset. They are definitely underdogs, so even the home-field advantage isn’t able to push the odds lower than 3.60 for a home win.

Kilmarnock will have to maintain the high level of focus against Hamilton Academical. They can’t afford any mistakes and errors if they plan to run away home with three points in the bag.

It would take a small miracle for the hosts to get to a stalemate this match, let alone win somehow. A quick look at the 9.00 price for a home win should be enough to tell you that, though.

It’s hard to see this match going any other way than an away win. Priced at 1.42 with most bookies, this match is a fairly one-sided affair, and Dijon will need to give quite the performance if they want to get any points out of it.

AGF are easily the favourites in the match this Sunday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 1.83 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Nordsjælland may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Nordsjælland seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.70, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

A home win should not be questioned in this game. AaB are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Horsens and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.62.

The Reds seem to be on their way to another easy victory and 3 more points to the tally. Priced at 1.25, the odds favour them heavily, so any outcome other than an away win is not exactly a safe choice.

Bayern Munich are expected to win this match, which is made quite clear by the 1.32 odds that can be found with most bookies. The odds are not so short as to make an Away Win bet not worth taking, though, which also implies a certain degree of risk.

Hertha BSC - Köln

Hertha BSC will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Köln. The price of 2.60 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

While Koln may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.05 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Schalke 04 - Eintracht Frankfurt

To call the upcoming match difficult for Schalke 04 would be a major understatement. They are going up against impossible odds. With a home win priced at 13.00 with major online bookmakers, this is a completely one-sided game.

Most bookies and expert opinions agree that Eintracht Frankfurt should record a decisive victory here. It’s a fairly one-sided matchup overall, and they are hard favourites despite playing as the away team.

Schalke are coming on the back of a narrow 1:... read more

Juventus - Inter

Though the home team can be called favourites, they can’t quite relax going into the match at Inter. Their advantage is quite narrow, and just a few mistakes could end up costing them the game.

The Nerazzurri will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.35 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Juventus are coming off a glowing 1:3 victory against Sassuolo in the previous round. The... read more

Austria Wien - St. Pölten

We don’t expect Austria Wien to have any issues beating St. Pölten. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.80 might actually be a good-value bet to consider. The visitors are not to be underestimated but on this particular instance the home side are seen as clear winners.

The visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 4.33 away win odds alone should speak volumes. ... read more

Rheindorf Altach - Ried

By pricing a home win at around 2.20, the bookies made it clear that Rheindorf Altach are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

Ried are not a team that backs down from a challenge and we expect them to give their best in an effort to claim a victory in this match.

Rheindorf Altach’s latest performance in the Tipico Bundesliga can’t be called impressive, though the 3:3 draw against St. Pölten is not ... read more

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!
