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.

Dundee United - Hibernian

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Dundee United winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to Hibernian, which is made quite clear with the 3.60 odds offered for a home win result.

Despite playing away, Hibernian 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 2.25, we’re in for a close game.

Sirius - AIK

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Sirius winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to AIK, which is made quite clear with the 4.25 odds offered for a home win result.

With a price of 2.02 on them winning, AIK 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.

Sivasspor - Hatayspor

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

It would be a minor miracle for Hatayspor to win at Sivasspor, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 3.60 price on most online sportsbooks.

Schalke 04 - Augsburg

Schalke 04 might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as Augsburg are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

At 3.80 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive Augsburg are well aware of it themselves.

Juventus - Bologna

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 1.54, 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.

Bologna stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 7.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

Midtjylland - Viborg

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.73 is a solid option. That said, Viborg 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 Viborg will be left with slim pickings in this match.

Sint-Truiden - AS Eupen

The odds are definitely leaning in the hosts’ favour, but this match is far from a done deal. Judging by odds alone, AS Eupen may yet be able to walk away with a draw or even a surprise victory – though it’s still a longshot.

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

Silkeborg - Horsens

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.

Horsens are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Silkeborg.

The 3:2 defeat of Silkeborg in the previous round against Randers was somewhat predictable. Still, they managed to maintain an even score for the entire first half, which gives a silver li... read more

Famalicão - Boavista

Boavista will give Famalicão a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.28 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

While Boavista may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.40 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

The hosts have a chance to make amends for the Casa Pia defeat from the previous round. It ... read more

Ajaccio - Clermont

Though Ajaccio 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.

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

Varberg BoIS - Häcken

The most probable outcome of this match is Varberg BoIS getting completely overwhelmed. They are underdogs by a considerable margin, and it’s not likely even the most optimistic of their fans are expecting them to pull off a victory.

With a price of 1.85 on them winning, Häcken 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.

Hertha BSC have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Hoffenheim. 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.

Hoffenheim are heading into what’s surely be a challenge. Team from Berlin are not to be taken lightly and an away victory would certainly be a big success for the visitors.

Fakel - Torpedo Moskva

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

Torpedo Moskva are coming into this match as underdogs, though the difference is not overwhelming. Even so, they’re not all that likely to win. An Away Win bet is priced at 3.40 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

Brøndby - Lyngby

Brøndby are firm favourites in this matchup, and backing them may offer surprising betting value. It’s a very safe bet, though we suppose an upset is not outside the realm of possibility. We wouldn’t count on Lyngby winning, though.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Lyngby seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 5.00, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Southampton are easily the favourites in the match this Saturday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.20 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Everton may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

At 3.55 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive The Toffees are well aware of it themselves.

By pricing a home win at around 2.15, the bookies made it clear that Freiburg are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

Mainz 05 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.

Ankaragücü will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by İstanbul Başakşehir, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 4.10.

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

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

    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!
