What are over and under 2.5 goals bets?

Over and under 2.5 goals bets (often referred to as overs and unders, or shortened to simply O/U 2.5 goals) are a very popular betting market and allow you to bet on whether you think there will be more than or less than three goals in a match.

If you bet on over 2.5 goals in a match, there will need to be at least three goals during the match for the bet to win. Going for over 2.5 goals can be an entertaining way of betting because, even if your game is 0-0 at half time, there is always the chance of a second half flurry of goals – Liverpool’s dramatic 3-2 win over QPR back in 2014 springs to mind!

If you decide to bet on under 2.5 goals, there can only be a maximum of two goals in the game so if one of the teams gets an early goal, you could be in for a tense afternoon hoping that the floodgates don’t open!

How often do you post over/under 2.5 goals tips?

Over/under 2.5 goals tips are posted up as often as the English and European football fixture list allows which usually means that there is a full set of fixtures every weekend and roughly every other midweek, on a Tuesday or Wednesday.

Tips will be posted by 7pm the night before for 3pm weekend fixtures and by 12pm on the day of midweek evening fixtures.

How do you choose your O/U 2.5 goals tips?

When choosing their over and under 2.5 goals tips our tipsters start by looking at the betting stats in our stats centre showing average team goals per game, for and against.  For over 2.5 goals bets, a good tactic is to look for matches involving teams which favour attacking football, often leaving themselves short at the back as they are likely to score but are also likely to concede.

A particularly useful table for picking out over 2.5 goals bets is the Over 2.5 Goals Top 20 table which shows the 20 best performing teams in the country in this market, along with average goals for and against per game.  

For under 2.5 goals bets, our tipsters like to look for games where two defensive minded teams are playing each other. The top 20 table for under 2.5 goals is great for spotting these teams at a glance but for a more comprehensive look there is also the sortable long list table which gives the stats for all English sides in the top five divisions.


How do I get involved and follow your O/U 2.5 goals betting tips?

Following our over/under 2.5 goals tips and getting involved is easy – simply check this page after 12pm on the day of English midweek fixtures and after 7pm the day before weekend fixtures, or you can follow us on Twitter for all our latest betting tips.

We recommend using either Marathonbet or Unibet for O/U 2.5 goals betting as both tend to be more generous with their odds.
