Under 2,5 Goals Predictions

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

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

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

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

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

AIK - Norrköping

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

It would be a minor miracle for Norrköping to win at AIK, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 4.90 price on most online sportsbooks.

Anderlecht - Westerlo

Anderlecht 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 Westerlo winning, though.

At 4.60 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive Westerlo are well aware of it themselves.

The latest 0:1 triumph we saw from Anderlecht was deserved, if a bit unimpressive. They managed to meet the expectatio... read more

Ajaccio - Auxerre

Beating Auxerre will not be easy, but we believe Ajaccio 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 visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating Ajaccio is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Auxerre.

No one expected Ajaccio to win the previous round at Clermont – they were the visiting team in a highly disf... read more

Montpellier - Toulouse

Though Montpellier 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.

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

Antwerp - Cercle Brugge

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.

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

We last saw Antwerp in a fairly favourable matchup against Zulte-Waregem, which they convincingly won 0:2. T... read more

Real Betis - Cádiz

It’s easy to point out Real Betis 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 Cádiz are given 5.60 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything... read more

Almería - Valencia

Almería may come out on top this Sunday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Valencia. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 3.00 for the hosts to win.

Valencia will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 2.55 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Almería are coming off from a 2:2 draw in an away g... read more

Olympique Lyonnais - Rennes

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

The task ahead is well-known to the visiting team. Defeating Olympique Lyonnais on their own field would be a major accomplishment, and doing so is always challenging.

Ankaragücü - İstanbulspor

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Ankaragücü are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against İstanbulspor and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.72.

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

Brommapojkarna - Malmö FF

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 7.40 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming Malmö FF.

Priced at very short odds of 1.46, and away win seems the most logical outcome here. Brommapojkarna may be hoping to pull off a draw or surprise win, but both of these are longshots.

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

The visitors are well aware of the challenge ahead of them. To defeat Austria Lustenau on their home field would be a significant achievement, and it is never an easy undertaking.

Juventus 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.

Portimonense will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Rio Ave don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 2.80 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

Paços de Ferreira have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 2.70 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

The visitors are fully aware of the challenge that lies ahead. A win against Paços de Ferreira on their home field would be a significant achievement, and it is never an easy task.

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

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

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.

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!
