OVER/UNDER 2.5 GOALS HELP

How do I place an over 2.5 bet on KickOff?

It’s easy. If you want to bet that a game will feature over 2.5 goals, simply click the odds in the “OVER 2.5” column. If you want to bet the game will finish with under 2.5 goals, click the odds in the “UNDER 2.5” column.

To place the bet with a bookmaker, click “view betslip” on mobile and then select choose which bookmaker you’d like to place the bet with – they’ll appear in order of the best odds for your selection.

If you want to save the tip to KickOff without placing it with a bookmaker click the icon next to the KickOff logo. If you do this your bet will still be counted towards your KickOff profit totals and any competitions on KickOff, including the top over/under 2.5 goals leaderboard.

What stats does KickOff have for the under and over 2.5 goals markets?

Form

This tab shows you the average number of goals each team has scored and conceded per game over their last 20 matches in the relevant competition. The default display shows the home team’s last 20 at home and the away team’s last 20 away. To see stats for each team’s last 20 regardless of venue click “overall”.

xG and Stats

One way to predict how many goals there will be in a game is to add up how many a team usually concedes per game and how many they usually score, then add this to the number their opponent usually scores and concedes, and divide that number by 2.

You can use the xG stat in a similar way. xG shows how many goals a team might have been expected to score. If a team’s xG is lower than the number of goals they’ve actually scored it might suggest they’ve been lucky or have an excellent finisher (although very few players and teams exceed their xG over long periods of time). Therefore if you add the two team’s xG together you will get an idea of how many chances and of what quality are likely to be created in the game, and how many goals this is likely to result in.

If the xG is higher than the figure you calculated using actual goals conceded then it could suggest there is value in this over 2.5 goals bet.

Over/Under 2.5 goals League table

What does the League Table show?

The over/under 2.5 goals league table shows the results of both teams playing in the selected match against every other team in the league. They are colour coded by whether the match finished with over 2.5 goals or not. Light green squares show matches which finished with over 2.5 goals and darker squares show matches which finished with under 2.5 goals. Light grey squares show fixtures which have not yet been played, with the date of that fixture shown as well.

On the left, you can see the results of the home team, and on the right, the results of the away team. The home team’s results are in turn split into two columns, for their home and away results*.

*In some leagues, such as the SPFL, there are 4 columns because teams play each other more than twice in a single season.

How do I use the League Table?

The over/under 2.5 goals results table is a great way to find patterns and gain an edge when finding an over 2.5 goals tip or placing an under 2.5 goals accumulator. You might see that although a team’s averages for goals scored and conceded are quite high their matches against teams in the top 6 usually result in under 2.5 goals. This would show up visually on the league table as a lot of lighter green squares towards the bottom half of the table and darker squares towards the top.

There could be many reasons for this difference, such as the team setting up defensively to try to get a point against a rival or that there is more pressure on these games leading to more cautious play or striker’s missing chances. Either way, this information will help you make better over 2.5 goals tips and build better accumulators.

What is the over 2.5 goals Pro Menu and how do I use it?

The Pro Menu is available to Pro users for just £5 per month. With it you can easily sort all matches either by how likely it is there will be over 2.5 goals or how likely it is there will be under 2.5 goals. This is a great way to start building your accumulator, you can then use the other information to decide which of the matches you’d like to include in your bet. The Pro Menu also allows you to filter matches to show only those where a team has had:

– More than 5 consecutive games with over 2.5 goals
– More than 5 straight games with under 2.5 goals
– More than 5 games without scoring more than 1 goal (this is useful because for there to be over 2.5 goals in a match at least one of the teams will have to score twice)
– More than 5 games without conceding more than 1 goal

Under and Over 2.5 goals

Under and Over 2.5 goals bets fall pretty much at the sweet spot in terms of difficulty and reward. There were roughly 2.7 goals per game in the Premier League last season, so lots of games finish with more than 2.5 goals and lots finish with fewer. This means that odds in this market hover usually around evens or just under, and there is lots of value to be found with the right information.

That’s where we come in. For each game we provide stats on how many goals each team has scored and conceded in their last 20 games, how many of their games have finished with under 2.5 goals or over 2.5 goals, their xG for the season and more detailed stats about chance conversion. Our league table which shows how many of a team’s matches finish with under or over 2.5 goals depending on where the team they’re playing is in the table.

Over and Under 2.5 goals Tips & Predictions for Today and the Weekend

Below you can find all our latest football betting tips across all Europe’s biggest leagues and competitions.

Sunday 2nd May – Monaco v Lyon – Over 2.5 Goals

Not only have Monaco been enjoying some impressive results on home soil this season, but they have also proven thoroughly entertaining to watch, with over 2.5 goals being the order of the day in 14 of their 17 Ligue 1 fixtures. Before hosting Lille, meanwhile, 13 of the most recent 19 top-flight matches involving Lyon had also served up three goals or more.

Saturday 1st May – Frosinone v Pisa – Under 2.5 Goals

Thrillers have been few and far between in recent Frosinone home matches in Serie B, with under 2.5 goals being the order of the day in 15 of their previous 20 encounters. As for Pisa, before visiting Pordenone, they had featured in six second-tier fixtures out of nine on the road containing two goals or fewer, so excitement threatens to be in short supply in this contest.

Tuesday 27th April – Sunderland v Blackpool – Under 2.5 Goals

Ahead of their meeting with Accrington, under 2.5 goals had been the order of the day in nine of the most recent 14 Sunderland matches at the Stadium of Light in League One. It is Blackpool who seem to be even fonder of a low-scoring encounter, however, as no fewer than ten of their last 14 away games at this level have served up a maximum of two goals.

Monday 26th April – Eibar v Real Sociedad – Under 2.5 Goals

Under 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in 14 of the previous 19 Eibar home matches in La Liga, so it would be fair to say that excitement has been in short supply at this ground. Although they cannot compete with these numbers, it should be noted that seven of the most recent 11 Real Sociedad away games at this level have also served up two goals or fewer.

Sunday 25th April – Wolverhampton Wanderers v Burnley – Under 2.5 Goals

Ahead of their trip to Manchester United, Burnley had been involved in more than their fair share of low-scoring encounters in the Premier League, with 12 of their previous 18 games producing two goals or fewer. Before hosting Sheffield United, meanwhile, under 2.5 goals had also been the order of the day in eight of the last 12 Wolves matches at this level.

Thursday 22nd April – Roma v Atalanta – Over 2.5 Goals

No fewer than 14 of the last 20 Roma home games in Serie A have delivered over 2.5 goals, so the capital club certainly cannot be accused of playing dull football at the Stadio Olimpico. What’s more, in advance of their meeting with Juventus, the net had also bulged at least three times in 13 of the previous 19 Atalanta matches at this level, which bodes well for this clash.

What is an over 2.5 goals bet?

Obviously, you can’t actually have 0.5 of a goal in a game of football. So a bet that there will be over 2.5 goals in a game is a bet that there will be at least 3 goals in the game which would include scorelines such as 2-1, 3-0, 3-1 and so on.

What is an under 2.5 goals bet?

A bet that there will be under 2.5 goals is a bet that there will be 2 goals or fewer in the game, which would include the scorelines 0-0, 1-0 (0-1), 1-1 and 2-0 (0-2).

How do we make our under 2.5 goals and over 2.5 goals predictions?

The first thing to look at when making a prediction that there will be over 2.5 goals in a game is how many goals the two teams have scored and conceded in their previous matches. This isn’t always as simple as it might look at first sight though. We make sure all our goals stats are available for home matches and overall matches, and that they’re for relevant competitions so that big wins against lower league sides don’t muddy the waters.

Our algorithm also takes into account xG as well as a range of attacking and defensive stats when providing an over 2.5 goals or under 2.5 goals prediction, so you can be s
