What is the Over/Under 2.5 Betting Prediction?

Over/under 2.5 goals bets typically relate to the full 90-minute match (excluding any 30 minutes of extra time), but you may also find it available within first/second-half betting too. In either case, you are simply betting on whether there will be over 2.5 goals scored (three or more) or under 2.5 goals scored (two or fewer).

When does the Over 2.5 Goals Market win?

To be successful in the over 2.5 goals market, there must be at least three goals scored. Once the third goal has been scored, your bet is locked in as a winner (providing VAR does not overturn it!).

In Which Cases Does the Under 2.5 Goals Market Win?

With under 2.5 goals, you will be hoping for a low-scoring affair, a match with under three goals scored; in other words, 0, 1 or 2 goals only. There is no settling this market early, as there could be a flurry of goals late on. Only when the final whistle blows can you be sure you have a winner.

Pros and Cons of Over/Under 2.5 Goals Predictions

  • Pros
  • Provides good chances of winning
  • You are betting on the match outcome, not a single team
  • Cons
  • Potential returns are not very high

Over/under 2.5 is one of the most popular football betting markets for a couple of reasons. One is that it is easy to do relevant research to help identify smart selections. It tends to produce fewer hard-luck stories, too, than other markets, as you are really only betting on the general trend of the game (i.e. lots of goalscoring chances or very few). This means an individual error will often not be enough to ruin your bet like it would do in the match result market, for example.

The major downside with this market is that the returns are not very high, as there are only two (relatively even) outcomes to choose from. Additionally, usually, the one that makes the most compelling case will be available at odds that are considerably under 2.0, as bookies obviously do their research too.

Where to Place Bets on Over/Under Markets?

With over/under bets being so popular, you will have no difficulty finding them whatsoever, even for lower-league fixtures. For every regular bettor, it is wise to find a bookie that operates with a small house edge, so you get the best value. If both under/over 2.5 goals were looking like equally likely outcomes, a generous bookie would have both options available at odds of around 1.9, whereas a stingy one would have both at around 1.8.


What are the most preferred leagues for over 2.5 goals betting?

This will vary season by season, but some leagues regularly have a high percentage of matches featuring over 2.5 goals. Austrian and German leagues tend to be a good place to start (including both top tiers), as do the top Norwegian leagues. Women’s football also typically produces a good number of goals, so this is always worth investigating too.

What are the top football leagues for under 2.5 goals betting?

Many of the leading North African leagues, including those in Algeria, Morocco and Egypt, are certainly not strangers to low-scoring contests, producing a high rate of games that see under 2.5 goals. On the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, it is also worth looking at the top two leagues in Greece and the Spanish Segunda division for regular low-scoring games.

Do Own goals count for Over/Under betting?

Yes, own goals always count in this market. For the purposes of over/under betting, an own goal is treated just like any other.
