Under 2,5 Goals Predictions

    Feeling lost about all the different markets available for football betting? Or just unsure how to get the most out of an Under 2.5 Goals bet? Either way, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading for the Betting Fellow in-depth guide to Under 2.5 Goals betting.

    We’d like to preface this tutorial by pointing out that this market is basically just a reverse of the Over 2.5 Goals one.

    As such, a lot of the things we’ll talk about here are very similar to BettingFellow’s guide to Over 2.5 Goals betting. A lot of the strategies and factors to consider are the same, for example, only the effects they have on the bet itself are reversed.

    Still, we heartily recommend carefully reading through both of them to get the best idea of their differences and similarities.

    Now, without further ado, let’s start with the basics.

AIK - Mjällby

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

With a price of 9.00 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Mjällby will likely not fare well against AIK. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

AIK are looking to bounce back from a disappointing trip to Degerfors in the last round of the Allsvenskan. Had th... read more

Helsingborg - Kalmar

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Helsingborg winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to Kalmar, which is made quite clear with the 3.95 odds offered for a home win result.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Kalmar have a better chance of winning this clash than their opponents. They can’t afford to relax just yet though – the hosts may prove a tough nut to crack after all.

Jerv - Sarpsborg 08

Jerv 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 3.85 for a home win.

With a price of 2.05 on them winning, Sarpsborg 08 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.

Tromsø - Lillestrøm

While the scales seem somewhat tipped in the hosts’ favour, the win is anyone’s to take. Statistically speaking, all 3 outcomes to this match are quite possible, making reliable betting predictions hard to come by.

Lillestrøm will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.20 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Värnamo - Hammarby

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

Though it won’t be the easiest match of their careers, Hammarby should be able to pull ahead for a victory. Most online bookmakers are pricing an away win at 1.92, which gives us confidence it’s the most likely outcome.

IFK Göteborg - GIF Sundsvall

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.57 bring great value considering the fact that IFK Göteborg are indeed firm favourites to defeat GIF Sundsvall.

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

IFK Göteborg’s previous Allsvenskan match did not go their way, but not even the most stubborn f... read more

HamKam - Odd

Odd will give HamKam a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.37 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

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

Things were looking quite bleak for HamKam on half-time of their previous Eliteserien clash against Viking . They were losing in an away gam... read more

Aalesund - Jerv

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.61 is a solid option. That said, Jerv may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

It’s hard to believe even the most optimistic Jerv fans are expecting them to triumph at Aalesund this Wednesday. It’s a completely one-sided matchup, and the hosts should have no problems steamrolling their opponents.

Elfsborg - IFK Göteborg

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Elfsborg are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against IFK Göteborg and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.59.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for IFK Göteborg, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 6.10.

Varberg BoIS - Degerfors

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

It would be a minor miracle for Degerfors to win at Varberg BoIS, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.00 price on most online sportsbooks.

Elche - Getafe

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

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating Elche is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Getafe.

Elche lost their previous away game, although the narrow 1:0 margin means it’s nothing to... read more

Haugesund - Bodø / Glimt

Haugesund will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by Bodø / Glimt, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 4.20.

With 1.91 odds for an away win, Bodø / Glimt have a rather clear path to victory. Still, there’s plenty of room for an upset in a match like this, so other options are still worth considering.

No-one expected Haugesund’s incredible performance in the previo... read more

Sarpsborg 08 - Aalesund

Though Sarpsborg 08 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 away team’s chances of winning this Sunday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a matchup with Sarpsborg 08, and the fact that they’re the visiting team isn’t making things any easier.

Sevilla - Athletic Bilbao

Sevilla have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 2.55 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

The 3.00 away win betting odds indicate that Athletic Bilbao are the underdogs of this matchup. The difference is not huge, though, so both a victory for the visitors and are draw are still on the table.

All the punters who backed Sevilla to get a draw from their latest La Liga trip must have had a crystal ball as... read more

Real Sociedad - Atlético Madrid

Real Sociedad will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Atlético Madrid. The price of 2.88 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, Los Rojiblancos would need to play their best to have a hope of winning. That said, even a draw would be a positive outcome, and all three results are quite possible.

The top online sportsbooks agreed that t... read more

Granada - Espanyol

Granada are seen as favourites to win this match against Espanyol. The betting odds indicate an easy win and anything but a home victory here would indeed be a big surprise.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Espanyol stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 7.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

Although Granada are coming on the back of a harsh 2:0 loss, it would be ... read more

Hatayspor - Giresunspor

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

Giresunspor 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.

The beginning of Hatayspor’s previous league match did not exactly offer tangible indication the match would result in a heavy defeat. Hatayspor managed to k... read more

SønderjyskE - Viborg

SønderjyskE have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Viborg. 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.

Viborg should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.33 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - SønderjyskE are no pushovers.

Valencia - Celta de Vigo

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

Team from Vigo have their work cut out for them this Saturday. Most bookmakers online see them as the stronger team, made evident by the 2.50 betting odds for an away win. That’s a fairly slim advantage, though.

Valencia’s previous away game against Espanyol was an altogether d... read more

    Feeling lost about all the different markets available for football betting? Or just unsure how to get the most out of an Under 2.5 Goals bet? Either way, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading for the Betting Fellow in-depth guide to Under 2.5 Goals betting.

    We’d like to preface this tutorial by pointing out that this market is basically just a reverse of the Over 2.5 Goals one.

    As such, a lot of the things we’ll talk about here are very similar to BettingFellow’s guide to Over 2.5 Goals betting. A lot of the strategies and factors to consider are the same, for example, only the effects they have on the bet itself are reversed.

    Still, we heartily recommend carefully reading through both of them to get the best idea of their differences and similarities.

    Now, without further ado, let’s start with the basics.

    More about Under 2,5 goals predictions

What Is Under 2.5 Goals Betting?

The name is pretty much self-explanatory. For this type of bet, you’re essentially predicting that the match will end with fewer than 3 goals scored total.

A key factor here is that the actual score doesn’t really matter. It’s irrelevant if the final score is 0-0, 0-1, 1-0, 1-1, or 2-0. As long as the combined number of goals scored during the entirety of the match does not reach 3, the Under 2.5 bet wins.

So why is it called Under 2.5 Goals? There’s no such thing as half a goal in football, right? On top of that, you cannot exceed the number 2, and you must not reach 3. There’s no 2.5 to be found there.

This type of bet was named as it was to avoid any possible confusion about which betting tips win and which ones do not. Were it called “Under 3 Goals”, someone might make the mistake of believing that a game that ends with 3 goals scored would confirm this market. Likewise, calling it “Under 2 Goals” would imply that a tip fails after only 2 goals. And so, an imaginary half-goal was invented to keep things clear and simple.

Similarly to Over 2.5 betting, this market is reserved solely for football betting due to the way scoring works in this game.

Why Bet on Under 2.5 Goals?

This market is extremely popular and has been for quite a while, and not without reason. Here, we’ll list some of the pros and cons of Under 2.5 betting.

To start with, consider that an Under 2.5 Goals bet can only win or lose, much like its Over 2.5 counterpart. There is no third possibility here, so your odds of winning are a base of 50% - specific odds in regards to the teams, league, and match involved not included. As any experienced punter might tell you, that’s already a decent chance.

The fact that this makes any calculations you need to make easy to follow is an added bonus. Over/Under markets are very simple, and even absolute beginners can use them to great effect.

Not having to rely on a team’s performance is also a good thing most of the time. In fact, you ideally want teams to underperform – especially with their offence. You can find more information about this point further down in the tips section.

On the flip side, the returns are nothing to really get excited about. A lot of lower-tier leagues have especially abysmal odds for Under 2.5, often around 1.50. This might just seem like a regular low-odds bet, but remember that at the end of the day there are no favourites for this type of bet. Betting theory tells us that the probability for Under/Over 2.5 Goals really is almost always somewhere around 50%.

Other disadvantages include the fact that an Under 2.5 does not win until the very end of the match. There’s always a chance another goal or two will be scored, so you can’t relax until it’s all over.

How to Bet on Under 2.5 Goals?

Due to their simplicity, there’s not a lot of concerns with the bet placement itself. The results are exclusively binary – an Under 2.5 bet either wins or loses, any sort of inconclusive result is impossible. Thus, the only thing you need to do is pick out a suitable match and select the Under 2.5 market, and you’re good to go.

Notably, the market’s simplicity, decent probability, and low profit margin make it a great choice for accumulator or combined bets. For example, 2 or 3 tips on an Under 2.5 Acca can greatly increase the eventual profits if you know what you’re doing.

Alternatively, combining Under 2.5 with an even number of goals bet is often a very good idea. Think of it this way: for a winning Under 2.5 tip, the total number of goals scored can be either 0, 1, or 2. Out of these three possibilities, two are even numbers. This gives you a 66% chance to pretty much double your winnings if we assume that the Under 2.5 part of the tip is already won. That’s great value!

How to Choose Matches to Bet on Under 2.5 Goals?

Picking out candidates for this market is notoriously tricky. More often than not, you’re betting that the game will not go great for anyone involved. As such, there’s no single trick that allows you to instantly know an Under 2.5 opportunity when you see it. However, we can still offer you some advice about things to look for in a match for an Under 2.5 Goals bet.

As a complete opposite of Over 2.5 Goals (And thus Both Teams to Score as well), you’re looking for defensively oriented teams. Ideally, those teams also often have trouble getting through their opponent’s defensive line.

Also, try to pick matches in which the two teams are more-or-less evenly matched. Such matchups often result in even scores or even scoreless games. Stalemates are, in fact, a good thing for Under 2.5 tips. It might seem counterintuitive to hope that the game will be boring, but that’s the nature of this type of betting.

Where to bet on Under 2.5 Goals?

There are many factors to consider when choosing an online bookmaker. Odds are the least of your worries – you need a reputable, reliable betting site that keeps their customers’ interests in mind and not just the bottom line.

So which one should you go for Under 2.5 Goals betting? As you might already be aware of, it’s not very common for a bookie to particularly excel in a single market. Instead, you need to see what their odds are across the board. You also need to keep track of any betting promotions or bonuses that can tip the scales one way or another.

All of this takes a lot of research – that’s why we here at BettingFellow have compiled a list of all the best online bookmakers. Hopefully, our overview of their various offers will help you make the right decision. We warmly recommend going through the whole list; but just in case, here are a few suggestions to get you started.

Coral. Since we mentioned earlier that Under 2.5 bets are great for combining, Coral is a well-known bookie with a long history. Flexibility is one of their best qualities, not to mention one of the most comprehensive sportsbooks out there.

PaddyPower. This betting site’s customer-oriented business model makes it attractive to beginners and veterans alike. Their customer support is on par with the best of them, and their odds are among the most attractive in the industry.

Betfred. Famed for its football betting offers in particular, Betfair is another obvious choice.

Under 2.5 Goals Betting Tips

Some think statistics take all the fun out of sports betting – but the numbers don’t lie. Stats are especially important for markets such as Under 2.5. They should be your bread-and-butter when deciding whether to wager on a match. Here’s what you should pay attention to the most:

Check the average number of goals scored in a game for the season. Remember to check both teams; If they only average between zero and two goals, you might have found a good match to place your tip.

Additionally, although this is pretty similar – check the percentage of matches in which the teams confirmed the Under 2.5 Goals market (Stats for the Over 2.5 Goals might also be a good indication.).

Ideally, you want both of the above points in Head-to-head statistics as well. Occasionally teams just have issues taking on other specific teams, and might have problems scoring goals against them even though they’re usually much better at it.

But that’s not all. You’ll also want to take a close look at the teams themselves, as well as the match in question. Here are some other factors that might influence the number of goals in a match:

Common strategies. Knowing a team’s playstyle usually just requires watching some good old footy. Pay attention to things like formations as well. For example, 5-4-1 is a typical defensive formation and might indicate a good team to place an Under 3.5 tip on.

Match context. We all know players don’t give their absolute best for each and every game, that would be impossible. Friendly games or matches where the result doesn’t really matter fo the teams’ standings in the league are great for the Under 3.5 market.

Additionally, check details like whether the team’s whole lineup is playing. Key offensive players not participating are a great example of what you should be looking for.

Bad weather or turf conditions are also not very conducive to goal-getting.

As you might have guessed, what you’re looking for is basically the opposite of the ideal Over 2.5 Goals match. Looking for candidates for one of these markets can result in finding a perfect opportunity for the other, so try to stay flexible.

Under 2.5 Goals Betting Variations

The most obvious alternative to Under 2.5 Goals are markets where the number of goals has been shifted upwards or downwards. These typically include Under 1.5 Goals and/or Under 3.5 Goals. As one might expect, these options just change the ratio of risk to reward.

Under 1.5 bets are very hard to predict. If you are absolutely sure almost no goals will be scored, though, they might be used to boost your winnings. Anything higher than 2.5, however, usually has terrible odds for obvious reasons.

Beyond these, some other common variations on this formula are:

Home Win & Under 2.5/Away Win & Under 2.5. This basically combines the classic result bet with Under 2.5. Can be trickier to get right than the Over 2.5 counterpart.

Under 2.5 and Both Teams to Score. Usually, a terrible idea, seeing how 1-1 is the only viable result here.

Under 2.5 and Goals Odd/Even. We mentioned previously why Goals Even is a good idea to combine with Under 2.5. Stay away from Goals Odd, however.

Under 2.5 Goals Verdict

Alternating between Over and Under 2.5 Goals tips to best fit the match in question can be a reliable way of winning bets. If you take your time, study statistics, and have enough patience – these markets are some of the best betting offers available.

We hope you enjoyed our in-depth Under 2.5 Goals betting tutorial. There are many like it all across BettingFellow, so make sure to check them all out!
