Over/Under 2.5 Goals Predictions

over 2.5 goals predictions

Every weekend we will be posting our predictions on the over/under 2.5 goals markets. They are not to be mixed up with our free football tips, which we take very seriously.

These bets will be speculative long shot accumulator bets, and should be treated purely as a bit of fun. I’m not claiming they are going to win. I will simply be looking for a bit of value, and will just be having a pound or two on the outcomes.

Over 2.5 Goals Predictions

– Arsenal V Tottenham @ 11/20 – 2.05pm
– RB Leipzig V Borussia Monchengladbach @ 1/2 – 2.30pm

The 5-fold pays just under 5.5/1. So for a £10 bet, the return would be £64.70 (including your tenner).

Over 2.5 Goals Means

A bet on over 2.5 goals simply means there will be 3 or more goals scored. So if a match finishes 3-0, 2-1, 6-1, 3-3, etc, over 2.5 goals would be the winning outcome.

Under 2.5 Goals Means

A bet on under 2.5 goals is a bet on a match having less than 3 goals scored in it. In other words the match can only have 0, 1, or 2 goals scored. So 0-0, 1-0, 0-1, 1-1, 2-0 or 0-2, would see under 2.5 goals being the winning outcome. While a bet on under 2.5 goals would lose if a match finished 2-2.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals General Info

The inclusion of the .5 in the bet is too ensure that there can only be 2 outcomes of the bet, rather than 3. These bets are only generally based on 90 minutes, so extra time and penalty shoot outs don’t count.
