Here are our latest Over or Under 2.5 goals betting tips and statistical predictions for today, tomorrow and the coming weekend.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 23rd to Monday 26th October

VfB Stuttgart v Koln – Over 2.5 Goals

Koln are rarely involved in dull encounters at the top table of German football, with 16 of their previous 20 matches serving up a minimum of three goals, and there is little reason to expect them to deviate from this script in this clash. That is because over 2.5 goals has also been the order of the day in 14 of the last 20 home games played by Stuttgart in the league.

Lazio v Bologna – Over 2.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 17 away games in Serie A, Bologna have been involved in no fewer than 12 encounters containing over 2.5 goals, and they have gone 18 matches without keeping a clean sheet on their travels. Three goals or more have also been served up in 14 of the most recent 19 Lazio home fixtures at this level, so expect more of the same in this clash.

Real Valladolid v Alaves – Under 2.5 Goals

Under 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in 15 of the most recent 20 Real Valladolid home games in La Liga, including in eight of their last nine encounters, so anyone expecting a thriller is set to be disappointed. As for 2001 UEFA Cup finalists Alaves, 13 of their last 19 matches at this elite level have also served up no more than a couple of successful strikes.

Aalesund v Odd – Over 2.5 Goals

Aalesund may be set for an immediate return to the second tier, but at least they can head there on the back of a season in which their matches have provided plenty of goals, with a minimum of three being scored in 17 of their 21 top-flight fixtures. For their part, Odd have been involved in a 6-1 win, a 6-1 loss, a 4-4 draw and a 4-1 defeat in their last five games.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 2nd to Monday 5th October

Aalesund v Kristiansund – Over 2.5 Goals

Since booking their place at the top table of Norwegian football, Aalesund have been involved in 15 matches out of 19 containing over 2.5 goals, with the newly-promoted outfit being outscored by 55 goals to 24. Not only that, but seven of the previous nine Kristiansund away games at this level have also served up a minimum of three successful strikes.

Viking v Stromsgodset – Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in 11 of the most recent 13 Eliteserien fixtures involving Viking, so entertainment has certainly not been lacking when they have taken to the field. Although they cannot compete with these numbers, it is still worth noting that 12 of the last 18 Stromsgodset away matches at this level have also served up three goals or more.

Almeria v Sporting Gijon – Under 2.5 Goals

When it comes to involvement in contests containing under 2.5 goals, Sporting Gijon are the absolute kings, with 16 of their previous 18 Segunda Division matches falling into this scoring bracket. Given that eight of the last 12 Almeria home games at this level have followed suit, it would come as a surprise were this clash to produce three goals or more.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 25th to Monday 28th September

SV Ried v RB Salzburg – Over 2.5 Goals

Three goals or more are virtually guaranteed when RB Salzburg take to the field in the Austrian Bundesliga, with ten of their previous 11 matches falling into this particular scoring category. Although newly-promoted SV Ried have only played a couple of games in the top-flight so far this season, they have managed to score and concede four times apiece.

Ajax v Vitesse Arnhem – Over 2.5 Goals

Recent meetings between these two sides have a history of producing three goals or more, with this being the case five times in a row in the Eredivisie. What’s more, 16 of the previous 20 Ajax home matches at this level, as well as eight of the previous 12 Vitesse away games in the top-flight, have been of the over 2.5 goals variety, so more of the same is expected here.

Real Valladolid v Celta Vigo – Under 2.5 Goals

One area in which Real Valladolid have proven incredibly consistent of late is in their involvement in top-flight home fixtures containing under 2.5 goals, with each of their previous seven encounters subscribing to this particular scoring model. For their part, Celta Vigo have been involved in eight away games out of 11 recently containing two goals or less.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions – Friday 18th to Monday 21st September

Sirius v Falkenbergs – Over 2.5 Goals

Watching Sirius home games in the Allsvenskan has become a pretty entertaining pastime, with 12 of their last 14 serving up three goals or more, including eight in a row of late. Five of the previous six Falkenbergs away matches have followed the same pattern, so it would come as a bit of a surprise were this contest to deliver anything other than over 2.5 goals.

Breiðablik v KR – Over 2.5 Goals

Breiðablik have featured 13 times in the Úrvalsdeild karla during the current campaign, with no fewer than ten of these encounters serving up over 2.5 goals, so they have proven pretty exciting to watch on the whole. The same can be said of KR, as nine of their last 11 matches at this elite domestic level have also delivered a minimum of three successful strikes.

Vikingur v HK – Over 2.5 Goals

HK have featured 14 times at the top table of Icelandic football so far this season, with 11 of these contests delivering over 2.5 goals, and the net has bulged 54 times across these games. Recent Vikingur home matches have proven similarly exciting, as each of the last four have served up three goals or more, and 25 goals have been scored in total across these fixtures.

Aston Villa v Sheffield United – Under 2.5 Goals

Aston Villa did just enough to stay up at the back end of last season, but the fact that seven of their final eight Premier League matches served up under 2.5 goals suggests that they were not particularly thrilling to watch. When you consider that 13 of the last 17 trips made by Sheffield United at this level have also produced two goals or fewer, hopes are not high.
