When you decide to bet on an over 2.5 goals bet, you are betting on a match that you are predicting will have three goals or more in. If you choose to bet on under 2.5 goals, you are betting on a match where you think there will be under 2.5 goals.
When looking through the markets for betting on football, you will regularly see the phrase ‘over 2.5 goals’ pop up. This is one of the most popular ways to bet on a football match and it simply means you need there to be three OR MORE goals in that match.
The reason bookmakers use the phrase over 2.5 goals is to avoid any confusion with the number of goals you need to have a winning bet. It simply means – three goals or more and your bet wins, two goals or more and your bet loses.
For example, you bet on an over 2.5 goals prediction in Manchester United vs Arsenal – Manchester United win the match 2-1. There have been three or more goals in this match so your bet is a winner. If the result was 2-0, 1-1, 1-0 or 0-0 then there would have been UNDER 2.5 goals (two or fewer), so your bet will be a losing one.
Everybody has their own way of picking football bets and people look at different stats when doing so.

Different people have different ways of betting on all the variable overs/unders markets such as overs 1.5 goals predictions and over 1.5 goals tips. There are many different stats to look at when picking over/under goals bets but one good system might be to pick a few teams and bet on their match to have over 2.5 goals in every weekend.
For example, bet on Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Everton matches to all have over 2.5 goals in each weekend. This will give you a good chance of landing the winning bet a few times a year.
Another system to use when betting on over/under goals bets would be to always pick the same home team, who usually have a consistent form line for their matches. If one team regularly score two or three goals per match at home then they would be a good selection for an over 2.5 goals bet.
