The first of our Over 2.5 Goals betting tips comes from Estadio Jose Zorrilla. It should be party time for the home fans in this game, with Valladolid securing their safety last weekend against at already-relegated Vallecano. The hosts have done just enough to ensure they finish above the dotted line, and they will want to go out with a bang here. Only three of their last six games have ended with three or more goals, but they can relax, and take their foot off the gas here.
Valencia were defensively sound for the majority of the campaign, but Marcelino’s men have struggled to keep clean sheets since they reached the semi-finals of the Europa League. They beat Alaves 3-1 last weekend, and that came off the back of a 6-2 thumping of Huesca. Los Che are scoring goals, and have a number of talented players in their side. Five of their last six games have ended with Over 2.5 Goals, and they are not quite on the beach yet, as Getafe could still nick fourth position from them.
Valencia are favourites to win this game, as they need the points, but Valladolid are always handy at home, and will want to put on a show for their faithful fans. Expect this one to be entertaining.
Our second selection comes from the Italian top flight, with Udinese fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table.
Udinese sit two points above third-bottom Empoli, and with an away trip to Cagliari next week, they will be keen to pick up points in this one remaining home fixture.
Igor Tudor has definitely improved his side’s fortunes, and they’ve lost just one of the last four, however they’re facing a side who are scoring goals for fun at the moment.
The hosts have scored in ten of their last eleven home matches, and will fancy their chances against a side who have kept just one clean sheet in their last six games. SPAL have seen five of their last six games end with three goals or more, and they put four past both Empoli and Chievo in recent weeks.
They’ve netted 16 goals in their last nine matches, and having secured their safety, they won’t be sitting back and defending here.
This is the shortest selection in our Over 2.5 Goals accumulator, but we’re expecting a terrific end-of-season finale.
Nurnberg are down, and they will be playing Bundesliga 2. football next season. They’ve conceded a whopping 63 goals this season, including nine in their last four. Some sides improve when they’ve been demoted, but they are showing no signs of life with a thumping 0-4 defeat at home to Monchengladbach last weekend.
None of their sixteen away games have yielded a clean sheet so far this campaign, and this should be a decent match for Freiburg to rack up a few goals.
Freiburg’s defence has been far from secure, and they’ve conceded 17 goals in their last six Bundesliga games. The hosts have also scored in all but three games this campaign, and they should enjoy this final day fixtures.
These two sides have played out some entertaining games in the past with 6-3 and 3-2 scorelines at this ground. Another cracker is expected.
We move to Ligue 1 for the last of our Over 2.5 Goals betting tips. Strasbourg have been a reliable source of goals this season, and they also rarely keep a clean sheet in front of their own fans. Nimes are the only side to have kept them off the score-sheet this season, and four of their last five home games have featured three or more goals.
Rennes also have very little to play for in this fixture, and they are ending the campaign in very entertaining fashion. There have been ten games in their last three Ligue 1 matches, and their last four games on the road have ended 2-2, 3-2, 3-1 and 3-3.
They haven’t kept a clean sheet since January 13th, and are liable to concede in this fixture.
All three previous meetings between the two clubs have ended with three or more goals, with Strasbourg winning 4-1 in Northern France earlier in the campaign.
