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.

Akhmat Grozny - Ural

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 1.75, 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.

Reims - Troyes

The home team are slightly stronger as far as most online bookies are concerned, but the difference is by no means insurmountable. Both a stalemate and a victory for Troyes are still on the table.

Troyes will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.50 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Despite the 1:1 draw at the end, Reims fans have a lot of reason to be happy with their previous... read more

Varberg BoIS - Malmö FF

There is a big reason why Varberg BoIS are given 5.40 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Malmö FF and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

We are likely going to see Malmö FF triumph this Sunday, though Varberg BoIS do have a fighting chance. Maybe the home field advantage will be enough to spur them into a surprise draw or victory, though it’s not a probable outcome.

Varberg BoIS offered a poor showing in the pr... read more

Sevilla - Levante

It’s quite easy to predict that Sevilla will take the 3 points here. Though a different result is not entirely impossible, it would still be quite a notable upset.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Levante 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.

LASK Linz - Rheindorf Altach

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. LASK Linz winning is by far the most likely outcome.

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

Wolfsberger AC - Austria Klagenfurt

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.71 bring great value considering the fact that Wolfsberger AC are indeed firm favourites to defeat Austria Klagenfurt.

At 4.75 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive Austria Klagenfurt are well aware of it themselves.

Wolfsberger AC are here on the back of an upturn victory in the previous round. They faced off against LASK Linz , who were widely ... read more

Olimpiyets - Krasnodar

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 5.75 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming Krasnodar.

Having a 1.65 selection on your slip can be a big boost to your potential winnings and with Krasnodar largely expected to beat Olimpiyets, you’d be wise to use it.

Häcken - Halmstad

Though we can call Häcken the favourites in this matchup, Halmstad 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 4.00 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

While The Boro may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.20 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Dundee United - Motherwell

With 2.38 on home win, the ground is level and three points are everyone’s to take. However, we’d still recommend backing Dundee United who should end up victorious in the end against Motherwell.

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

Cádiz will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Deportivo Alavés. The price of 2.60 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 Cádiz is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Alaves.

Millwall are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Stoke City. The odds of 2.50 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

Athletic Bilbao have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Villarreal. 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.

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.

We don’t expect Austria Wien to have any issues beating Ried. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.60 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.

Ried stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 5.50 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

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

Birmingham 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 matchup this Wednesday is rather one-sided, with Barnsley seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.90, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Olympique Marseille 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 Lorient winning, though.

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

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, Sevilla are somewhat more likely to triumph with betting odds of 2.30 on them winning.

With most bookies pricing a home win at 5.80, this is one of the more lopsided matches of the season. Needless to say, Ural don’t stand much of a chance at coming out on top.

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

Troyes 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 4.33 for a home win.

With 1.90 odds for an away win, Nice 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.

Most bookies see Brighton & Hove Albion as the favourites in this matchup, though it’s important to know things can go either way. Their victory is currently priced at 2.14, indicating that the hosts have a fighting chance.

Upsets do happen in football and it’s fair to say a home win here would be a definition of the case. Östersunds FK can count themselves lucky if they avoid getting completely destroyed by Malmö FF in this match.

Malmö FF seem to be on their way to another easy victory and 3 more points to the tally. Priced at 1.38, the odds favour them heavily, so any outcome other than an away win is not exactly a safe choice.

It would be a minor miracle for Admira to win at Austria Wien, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.20 price on most online sportsbooks.

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

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

West Bromwich Albion - Birmingham City

It’s easy to point out West Bromwich Albion 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 situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Birmingham City are given 5.75 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult... 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.
