Over 2.5 Goals Tips

Here at we love goals and with over 2.5 goals tips, that is exactly what we are looking for if we want our bets to win. That’s why we love the over 2.5 goals market. It’s one of the best football bets to place as a standalone bet, an over 2.5 goals accumulator or combined with another market, it really is a brilliant bet.

Premier League teams who are usually good for over 2.5 goals bets are the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham – attacking sides who always look to score goals.

We’re always on the lookout for the best over 2.5 goals stats and make sure we bring them directly to you. All our predictions for this type of bet can be found on this very page and you can read all the helpful information about over 2.5 goals betting below, as well as the meanings of under 2.5 goals, over 1.5 goals and how to bet on all these goals markets.


What does Over 2.5 Goals mean?

Betting on the over/under 2.5 goals market is relatively easy to understand and is one built around the number of goals scored within a game.

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.


Football Betting Tips Over 2.5 Goals

Everybody has their own way of picking football bets and people look at different stats when doing so.

Here are our top 5 pieces of advice when betting on over 2.5 goals…

  • DO look for matches where both teams like to attack when picking over 2.5 goals tips.
  • DON’T pick matches where the away side are considerably stronger – the home side might park the bus.
  • DO look at recent head-to-head stats and each team’s recent results.
  • DON’T pick matches where there is a chance a team will rest players.
  • DO always check injuries and suspensions – if Liverpool are without Salah and Mane, would they score as many goals, for example?

It pays to do some research when looking to place bets on the goals markets but this is time-consuming and that’s where are football betting tips come in so handy. Our team of tipsters work behind the scenes to ensure you get the best over 2.5 goals football tips that will give you the best chance of getting a winning bet on the football today.


How do I use Over 2.5 Goals Stats?

A lot of people like to look at stats before betting on football and there are many ways you can find the most up to date stats to help you with your over 2.5 goals football bets. The best website for football stats is Opta and I also like to use Soccerway when looking for vital statistics on over 2.5 bets.

It is not always easy to find stats for over/under 2.5 goals yourself so be sure to check out good football stats websites. You will find the latest betting tips on these markets at the top of this page and our tipsters will always investigate the latest over 2.5 stats for the UK fixtures before offering betting tips on this market. This will save you the trouble of having to look back at previous fixtures and seeing which teams have the best over 2.5 goals stats today.


Under 2.5 Goals Tips

As well as doing over 2.5 goals predictions, we also give under 2.5 tips sometimes and they’re sometimes included in the bets at the top of this page.

Under 2.5 goals simply means that you are predicting that there will be two or fewer goals in the match. That means if there are zero, one or two goals in the match then your bet will be a winning one.

There is always a bigger risk with under 2.5 goals picks because if there are some early goals in the match, your bet looks more and more unlikely to win but on the plus side, you will usually get better odds for betting on under 2.5 than you would for betting on over 2.5.

There is no real strategy to betting on under 2.5 goals but it is always good to look for teams who get a lot of clean sheets and also teams who don’t tend to score a lot of goals.

Betting on under 2.5 is ultimately the opposite of over 2.5, and are generally a little duller to watch. After all, when has a 0-0 been one that leaves you begging for more?

We work just as hard on our predictions though, studying the form, exploring head-to-head results and keeping our eyes on any team news.

Over 2.5 Goals System Tips

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.

A team who rarely concedes at home might be good for an under 2.5 goals prediction or even under 1.5 goals.


Are There Other Over/Under Betting Markets?

The over/under market isn’t just restricted to over/under 2.5 goals and you’ll find a huge range of different types with most online bookies.

Firstly, you can change the number of goals in which you want to bet on. For example, you might want to place a bet on over 3.5 goals.

Elsewhere you’ll find the over/under market available on the following:

  • Cards
  • Corners
  • Throw-ins
  • Booking points
