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.

Under and Over 2.5 goals Tips and Predictions

Our free over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals tips are updated daily and include all of Europe’s 5 major leagues (the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, the Bundesliga and Ligue 1), the Europa League and Champions League, as well as some smaller leagues too.

Under and Over 2.5 Goals Tips for Today and the Weekend

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

Friday 28th January – Dunkerque v Paris FC – Under 2.5 Goals

There have been under 2.5 goals in 16 of Dunkerque’s last 20 home matches in Ligue 2. They desperately need a result on Friday as they welcome a 4th placed Paris side who will also be desperate for the points to keep them in the hunt for promotion. This will likely make it a tight and cagey affair, especially as the visitors have also played a lot of league games with under 2.5 recently – 14 of their last 20 on the road have finished that way.

Friday 28th January – Ajaccio v Auxerre – Under 2.5 Goals

18 of Ajaccio’s last 20 league matches have finished with under 2.5 goals – and they currently have an active streak of 9 home Ligue 2 matches with 2 goals or fewer scored at the final whistle.

Auxerre have had a mixed bag in this market this season, with 12 of 20 actually finishing with over 2.5 goals. However, 3 of their 4 clashes with other teams in the top 5 have ended with under 2.5 goals, including the 0-0 the last time these two met. Odds on it happening again are currently 1.65.

Saturday 29th January – Wycombe v MK Dons – Over 2.5 Goals

MK Dons started the season with a 3-3 draw away at Bolton, and that’s been a signal of intent for how exciting their road games in League One were going to be this campaign. 10 of 13 have finished with over 2.5 goals, and there have been a total of 40 in those 13 (3.1 per game). 

Wycombe haven’t been quite as entertaining, but have still managed to hit the 3 goal mark in 9 of their last 15 at Adams Park Stadium. Hopefully fans will be treated to more of the same in this promotion 6 pointer.

Friday 4th February – Nurnberg v Ingolstadt – Over 2.5 Goals

There have been over 2.5 goals in 5 straight Nurnberg home league games. In fact there have been a total of 19 goals (3.8 goals per game) meaning supporters have been consistently well entertained.

Ingolstadt fans won’t be relishing a trip there though to see goals and entertainment, as it’s likely many of those strikes might be ending up in their team’s net. The visitors have conceded an average of 2.2 goals per game in their last 20 Bundesliga 2 away matches – 14 of their last 18 have finished with over 2.5 goals. They have also lost 6 of their last 7 to boot so it could well be a long journey back, even if over 2.5 goals tipsters might go away happy.

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 sure you’re getting the best over 2.5 goals information.

Under and Over 2.5 goals league table

Ever been really excited for a game between two high scoring teams at the top of the table only to watch a really terrible 0-0 draw? This is more common than you might think, as big teams set up more defensively against each other to stop their rival getting away. KickOff’s over/under 2.5 goals league table shows you whether a team has had other low scoring games against opponents either at the top or the bottom of the table, so you can back the right tip.
