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

Monday 25th January – Belenenses v Tondela – Under 2.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 18 matches at the top table of Portuguese football, Belenenses have been involved in a staggering 15 encounters containing two goals or fewer, so they certainly haven’t set too many pulses racing with their play. The same has been true of Tondela recently, as eight of their previous 11 games have also produced under 2.5 goals.

Sunday 24th January – Osasuna v Granada – Under 2.5 Goals

Ahead of their trip to Villarreal, Granada had been involved in six away games out of seven containing under 2.5 goals in La Liga, so there haven’t been too many fireworks when they have come calling. The same can be said of Osasuna when they enjoy home advantage in the top-flight, as six of their most recent eight matches have delivered two goals or fewer.

Saturday 23rd January – AC Milan v Atalanta – Over 2.5 Goals

In advance of their trip to Udinese, Atalanta had been involved in 14 top-flight away fixtures out of 20 containing a minimum of three goals, with this being the case seven times in nine trips more recently. Given that 11 of the previous 16 AC Milan home matches at this level have followed the same pattern, any deviation from this script would come as a surprise.

Wednesday 20th January – Getafe v Huesca – Under 2.5 Goals

It would be fair to say that Getafe have not been the most exciting team to watch recently, with 14 of their previous 20 La Liga fixtures serving up no more than a couple of goals. This has also been the case in 14 of the last 19 league games involving Huesca, so anyone expecting a thriller is set to be disappointed when the two teams lock horns here.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips – Monday 11th to Sunday 17th January

Spezia v Sampdoria – Over 2.5 Goals

Since booking their place at the top table of Italian football, Spezia have been involved in six home games out of eight containing over 2.5 goals, so they have provided plenty of entertainment. Strangely enough, the numbers are identical for Sampdoria on the road this term, so it would come as a surprise were this contest not to deliver three goals or more.

Sheffield United v Newcastle United – Under 2.5 Goals

Bramall Lane has not played host to too many thrillers in recent times, with 15 of the previous 20 top-flight fixtures at the venue delivering no more than a couple of goals. This has also been the case in seven of the last eight Newcastle away matches at this level, so anyone expecting fireworks between these two struggling sides is likely to be disappointed.

Atletico Madrid v Sevilla – Under 2.5 Goals

In advance of their meeting with Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid had been involved in six La Liga matches out of eight containing under 2.5 goals, and Diego Simeone’s charges are renowned for their defensive solidity. For their part, Sevilla have been involved in seven fixtures out of nine containing two goals or fewer on their top-flight travels recently.

Nottingham Forest v Millwall – Under 2.5 Goals

Before taking on Bournemouth, Millwall had been involved in 12 Championship fixtures out of 16 containing under 2.5 goals, including a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest. Speaking of the East Midlands outfit, 16 of their most recent 19 matches at this level have also served up two goals or fewer, meaning that a thriller seems unlikely when the two teams meet.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Predictions – Monday 4th to Sunday 10th January

Gil Vicente v Belenenses – Under 2.5 Goals

When Belenenses come calling, under 2.5 goals inevitably follows, with this being the case in each of their previous seven away games at the top table of Portuguese football. Gil Vicente have not exactly been delivering on the excitement front either, as eight of their last 11 Primeira Liga fixtures have also delivered two goals or fewer, so don’t expect a thriller.

Eupen v Genk – Over 2.5 Goals

A minimum of three goals have been netted in seven of the last ten Eupen home matches at the top table of Belgian football, so the struggling side cannot be accused of being dull to watch. For their part, Genk have featured in 11 top-flight games out of 15 recently in which over 2.5 goals have been scored, thus suggesting that an exciting encounter is on the cards.

Union Berlin v VfL Wolfsburg – Over 2.5 Goals

In advance of travelling to Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg had featured in ten away games out of 15 containing over 2.5 goals, including a 2-2 draw on their most recent visit to this ground. As for Union Berlin, six of their previous eight home fixtures at this level have served up three goals or more, so something similar is expected when the two teams collide.

VVV Venlo v Willem II – Over 2.5 Goals

One area in which VVV Venlo have proven themselves to be the epitome of consistency recently is in their involvement in top-flight fixtures containing over 2.5 goals, with 11 games in a row subscribing to this scoring model. Although they cannot compete with these numbers, it remains the case that nine of the last 13 Willem II matches have followed suit.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Statistics – Monday 28th December to Sunday 3rd January

Chelsea v Aston Villa – Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in four of the six Aston Villa away games in the Premier League this season, with Dean Smith’s charges returning with maximum points from five of these contests. Not only that, but the net has bulged three times or more in 11 of the last 16 Chelsea home matches at this level as well, so expect something similar in this clash.

Cadiz v Real Valladolid – Under 2.5 Goals

Cadiz certainly run a tight ship when they take to the field on their own patch, with 14 of their previous 17 home matches in the league serving up no more than a couple of goals. This has also been the case in 12 of the most recent 18 Real Valladolid away games at this level, so anyone expecting fireworks when the two teams meet is set for disappointment.

VfL Bochum v Darmstadt – Over 2.5 Goals

Mid-table Darmstadt are nothing if not great entertainers, as 15 of their most recent 20 second-tier fixtures have delivered a minimum of three successful strikes. Considering that 11 of the last 16 Bochum home matches have followed the same pattern, it would come as a surprise were anything to change when the teams collide, so expect over 2.5 goals here.

Hertha Berlin v Schalke – Over 2.5 Goals

Schalke have been involved in eight consecutive away matches containing over 2.5 goals in the Bundesliga, as well as in 11 games out of 12 over the slightly longer term. Given that 11 of the most recent 17 Hertha Berlin fixtures at this level have also served up three goals or more, any deviation from this script would come as a surprise in this head-to-head battle.

How to Pick an Under 2.5 Goals or Over 2.5 Goals Bet

One of the major advantages of the over 2.5 goals betting is that once three goals have been scored in a game your selection has effectively won.
