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.

Union Saint-Gilloise - Club Brugge

A mere glance at the betting odds for this match should tell you most you need to know. A home win here is almost an impossible outcome, so it’s not very likely we’ll see solid betting opportunities in the 1X2 market.

If you’re just looking for a simple 1X2 football bet, we suggest backing the away team in this match. Club Brugge are clearly more likely to win this matchup, though Union Saint-Gilloise are more than able to put up a good fight.

Kalmar - Mjällby

By pricing a home win at around 2.06, the bookies made it clear that Kalmar are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Mjällby seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.00, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

It’s hard to imagine anyone is happy about Kalmar and their result against Djurgården ... read more

Ufa - Dinamo Moskva

Ufa 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 3.80 for a home win.

Even with the home-field advantage as a factor, Dinamo Moskva 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.

Ufa are coming off of a strange sort of success – they secu... read more

RFC Seraing - Mechelen

RFC Seraing will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Mechelen don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 3.40 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

The match is most likely to go in the away team’s favour, though it’s by no means a sure thing. With 1.95 betting odds to win, Mechelen have the upper hand going in, but all three possible outcomes are possible.

Ural - Krasnodar

Most online bookmakers don’t put see Ural winning as a likely outcome, and we tend to agree. In fact, they are the clear underdogs compared to Krasnodar, which is made quite clear with the 4.75 odds offered for a home win result.

Though we can’t say for certain, all signs are pointing towards Krasnodar as the final winner of this showdown. Ural have been known to surprise us from time to time, though, so the match isn’t a done deal.

Wattens - Admira

It’s easy to point out Wattens as the clear favourites, but we wouldn’t call this match completely one-sided. The hosts are definitely more likely to win between the two, but a tie game is another possibility. An away win would be quite a surprise, but we’ve seen bigger upsets.

The matchup this Saturday is rather one-sided, with Admira seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.40, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen. read more

Kortrijk - RFC Seraing

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.80 bring great value considering the fact that Kortrijk are indeed firm favourites to defeat RFC Seraing.

RFC Seraing appear severely unprepared for a clash with Kortrijk, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.33 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Silkeborg - SønderjyskE

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

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

IFK Göteborg - Mjällby

With bookies pricing a home win at 1.83, it’s clear the match may yet go either way. The hosts have a distinct advantage, of course, but both a draw and an away win are quite possible outcomes.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Mjällby seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.50, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Sarpsborg 08 - Bodø / Glimt

A home win would be a big surprise in this match. Sarpsborg 08 are the underdogs here and it will be a huge surprise if they end up grabbing a win here.

Though Bodø / Glimt are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 2.20 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

Although Sarpsborg 08’s previous Eliteserien outing at Sandefjord was a crushing away loss, it’s hard to judge their form based on that performance alone... read more

Halmstad - Djurgården

Halmstad 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 4.20 for a home win.

Most bookies see Djurgården as the favourites in this matchup, though it’s important to know things can go either way. Their victory is currently priced at 1.96, indicating that the hosts have a fighting chance.

Östersunds FK - IFK Göteborg

Östersunds FK will likely try to secure a draw at most. They are outclassed by IFK Göteborg, plain and simple, and most bookies online agree with this – after all, the betting odds on a home win for this match are 3.80.

Though it won’t be the easiest match of their careers, IFK Göteborg should be able to pull ahead for a victory. Most online bookmakers are pricing an away win at 2.10, which gives us confidence it’s the most likely outcome.

Lillestrøm - Mjøndalen

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

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

Lillestrøm faced off against Brann in the previous game, and most bookies placed... read more

Degerfors - Östersunds FK

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

The odds are stacked heavily against Östersunds FK here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Degerfors are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.40.

Mjøndalen - Odd

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

While Odd may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 2.95 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Tromsø - Kristiansund

Predicting which side will win this match based on odds alone is a complete toss-up. We would say the hosts have a bit of an advantage, but their success is by no means assured.

The odds are stacked heavily against Kristiansund here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Tromsø are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 3.40.

Tromsø’s defeat in the previous round was to be expected, frankly. They played as vis... read more

Odd - Tromsø

Odd are easily the favourites in the match this Thursday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.00 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Tromsø may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

It would be a minor miracle for Tromsø to win at Odd, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.10 price on most online sportsbooks.

Few people saw the previous victory of Odd coming. The od... read more

Brann - Odd

Odd will give Brann 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.

Odd 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 previous round was fairly uneventful for both Brann and Sarpsborg 08 , the opposing home team. Considering an away win was priced at 2.35 with most top online bookies, however, a 0:... read more

Haugesund - Kristiansund

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

Kristiansund 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 3.65 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

With bookies pricing a home win at 2.20, it’s clear the match may yet go either way. The hosts have a distinct advantage, of course, but both a draw and an away win are quite possible outcomes.

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 usual to get it.

Kristiansund will give Sarpsborg 08 a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.32 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

Kristiansund 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 3.10 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

Tromsø - Sandefjord

Though we can call Tromsø the favourites in this matchup, Sandefjord 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 visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 4.70 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

Tromsø are here on the back of an upturn victory in the previous round. They faced off aga... read more

Newcastle United will give Fulham a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.19 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

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 usual to get it.

West Ham United - Southampton

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.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Southampton 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.

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

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

AIK won with a single-point lead in their previous showdown against Östersunds FK . Some fans were expecting more, seeing how AIK were considered favourites, but it’... read more

Tondela - Paços de Ferreira

Tondela will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Paços de Ferreira. The price of 3.10 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

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

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

The 2.80 away win betting odds indicate that Sporting Braga 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.

Though we can’t say for certain, all signs are pointing towards Rio Ave as the final winner of this showdown. Nacional have been known to surprise us from time to time, though, so the match isn’t a done deal.

Mjällby may come out on top this Monday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Häcken. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 3.20 for the hosts to win.

Häcken should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.49 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - Mjällby are no pushovers.

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.76 is a solid option. That said, Levante may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

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 Levante, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 5.50.

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Cádiz will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Elche.

Elche 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 2.65 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, Mjøndalen 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.

Though Hartberg 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 Admira here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Hartberg are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.00.

Spezia - Torino

Spezia may come out on top this Saturday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Torino. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 3.50 for the hosts to win.

Despite playing away, Torino 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 2.30, we’re in for a close game.

Arminia Bielefeld - Hoffenheim

Arminia Bielefeld will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Hoffenheim. The price of 2.85 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

The visitors are not walking into an easy match by any means, but they should be able to come out on top. Winning this match will be a welcome boost to their rankings, though such an outcome is priced at 2.50.

Southampton - Fulham

By pricing a home win at around 2.05, the bookies made it clear that Southampton are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

At 3.90 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive Fulham are well aware of it themselves.

Southampton displayed rather mediocre form in their previous home game against Crystal Palace – in the first half, at least. The second 45 minutes saw them take ho... read more

Paços de Ferreira - Gil Vicente

Gil Vicente will give Paços de Ferreira a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 3.05 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

Gil Vicente 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 2.70 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

There’s not much that can be said about Paços de ... read more

More about 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.

    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.
