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.

The latest Under 2,5 Goals predictions

10/03/2021

Barnsley - Derby County

Barnsley will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Derby County. The price of 2.55 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

While The Rams may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.10 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

The previous round was fairly uneventful for both The Tykes an... read more

Atlético Madrid - Athletic Bilbao

Though we can call Atlético Madrid the favourites in this matchup, Athletic Bilbao 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.

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 Athletic Bilbao, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 5.80.

Queens Park Rangers - Wycombe Wanderers

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.65 is a solid option. That said, Wycombe Wanderers may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

Considering what they’re up against, Wycombe Wanderers can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 5.50 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Queens Park Rangers performed beyond all expectations in t... read more

Göztepe - BB Erzurumspor

Though we can call Göztepe the favourites in this matchup, BB Erzurumspor 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.

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

Göztepe managed to scrape together a 1:1 draw at the end of their previous Super Lig sh... read more

Konyaspor - Fenerbahçe

Konyaspor are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Super Lig, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 4.20, it’s not very likely to happen.

Though Fenerbahçe are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 1.91 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

Konyaspor are coming on the back of an away draw (1:1) in the previous round against İ... read more

Gençlerbirliği - İstanbul Başakşehir

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

The match is most likely to go in the away team’s favour, though it’s by no means a sure thing. With 1.88 betting odds to win, İstanbul Başakşehir have the upper hand going in, but all three possible outcomes are possible.

Sampdoria - Cagliari

With the odds slightly in the hosts’ favour, they have a decent shot at walking away with 3 points. Still, Cagliari can pull off both a win or a draw, so the hosts can’t afford to let their guard down.

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

Sampdoria faced off against Genoa in the previous game, and most bookies placed them as the u... read more

Liverpool - Fulham

Liverpool should stroll into a fairly easy victory this Saturday. The odds are decidedly in their favour, with most top bookies pricing a home win at 1.30.

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 Fulham, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 12.00.

Heracles - PEC Zwolle

Heracles are easily the favourites in the match this Sunday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.17 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but PEC Zwolle may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

While PEC Zwolle may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.45 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Anderlecht - Mechelen

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

The odds are stacked heavily against Mechelen here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Anderlecht are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.05.

Napoli - Bologna

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Napoli are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Bologna and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.60.

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

Napoli ended up having to play catch-up for most of the... read more

Galatasaray - Sivasspor

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.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Sivasspor stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at ... read more

Atlético Madrid - Real Madrid

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

Real 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 2.75 right now, which means the favourites are far from clear.

Belenenses - Benfica

There is a big reason why Belenenses are given 7.50 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Benfica and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

Priced at very short odds of 1.47, and away win seems the most logical outcome here. Belenenses may be hoping to pull off a draw or surprise win, but both of these are longshots.

Belenenses walked away with a single point against Moreirense in the previous round. While the 2:2 outcom... read more

Real Sociedad - Levante

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.55 bring great value considering the fact that Real Sociedad are indeed firm favourites to defeat Levante.

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

Real Sociedad’s latest away game at Real Madrid was an inconclusive stalemate which persisted throughout the runtime. Considering they were visitors playing a... read more

Rio Ave - Farense

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

Farense appear severely unprepared for a clash with Rio Ave, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.10 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Rio Ave’s most recent 2:0 defeat at the hands of Benfica was easil... read more

Ajax - FC Groningen

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

FC Groningen are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Ajax.

Ajax are still reeling from a blow last week at PSV , even though they managed to narrowly avoid a complete loss by equalising in the second half and registering a 1:1 stalemate. They spent most of their... read more

Nordsjælland - Horsens

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

Horsens appear severely unprepared for a clash with Nordsjælland, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.00 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Nordsjælland’s victory in the previous round caught everyone by surprise. At the odds o... read more

FC Twente - Willem II

By pricing a home win at around 1.82, the bookies made it clear that FC Twente are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

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

FC Twente’s latest away game at Heracles was an inconclusive stalemate which persisted throughout the runtim... read more

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.

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

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. SC Heerenveen winning is by far the most likely outcome.

ADO Den Haag are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of SC Heerenveen.

SC Heerenveen are hardly in their top form if the previous round is to be believed. An early lead against PEC Zwolle went sour after the first 45 minutes... read more

AS Eupen are easily the favourites in the match this Friday, 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 OH Leuven may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

It would be a minor miracle for OH Leuven to win at AS Eupen, 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.

Famalicão will give Boavista a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.38 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

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

Boavista went into their previous Primeira Liga match on the back foot, yet managed... read more

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

Considering what they’re up against, The Chairboys can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 6.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Yeni Malatyaspor 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 3.20 right now, which means the favourites are far from clea... read more

Getafe 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.

We don’t expect Fenerbahçe to have any issues beating Antalyaspor. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.48 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.

Cagliari - Bologna

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 3.05. Cagliari will indeed find it very hard to beat Bologna here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

The 2.55 away win betting odds indicate that Bologna 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.

Cagliari are coming on the back of a 0:2 in an away game, so they must be ... read more

Lille - Olympique Marseille

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

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

Nantes - Reims

Nantes are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Reims. The odds of 2.45 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

Reims 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.

Nantes are coming on the back of a disappointing 1:1 draw in the previous round. Most fans hoped they managed to o... read more

Gazişehir Gaziantep - Gençlerbirliği

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.70 is a solid option. That said, Gençlerbirliği may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

With a price of 5.00 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Gençlerbirliği will likely not fare well against Gazişehir Gaziantep. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

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.
