The answer to this question is quite easy. Every game which ends with three or more goals ( 3-0, 2-1, 1-3, etc.) is a winning bet. It is very hard to find an Over 2.5 FT bet lower than 1/2 odds, which is opening a lot of possibilities for punters with expertise in this field.
Some of the best leagues for this type of betting are Holland Eredivisie, Belgium First Division A, Sweden Allsvenskan and UK lower divisions. There is no such thing as the best strategy for Over 2.5 FT bettings, but our main idea is to find teams which are currently in great form upfront, scoring a lot of goals and conceding some during the process.
The initial plan is to post at least four Over 2.5 FT single bets, doubles, trebles or accumulators per week. It would be best to bookmark this page immediately and check for an update next morning. Our aim is to make you win more so you might find that some days this section might not be updated.

So the best way is to bookmark this page and check daily if there are new Over 2.50 tips. If there are you can be ensured that we have done our homework and that it makes sense to get involved.
What is an Over 2.5 tip?
The Over/Under 2.50 goals market is one of the most popular in football betting. The meaning of it is pretty simple. If in a football game there are more than 2 goals in total between the two teams, then the Over 2.50 goal market is the winning one. If there are less then 3 goals in total then the Under 2.50 goal market is the winning one.
Some bookmakers, mostly outside Europe, might call this betting market ‘Over 2.50 goal-line’. Don’t get confused as it is the same thing.
An Over 2.50 tip is when a tipster is predicting that a match will have more than two goals in total. An Under 2.50 tip is when it is predicting that a football match will have less than three goals in total.
Why Under/Over 2.50 betting market is so popular?
Well, the reason is that it is easy to understand and can deliver interesting wins. Odds for Over 2.50 and Under 2.50 goals are normally in the region of 1/1 (2.00), so the returns can be significant if you hit a good streak. Another reason is that there are only two outcomes which reduce the margin for the bookmakers. For instance, in Home-Draw-Win market, there are three outcomes as the draw is also a possibility. Here, there are either more than two goals or less than three goals.
Most people call it a coin toss
Most people like to refer to this market as a coin toss. This is correct as if we look at football statistics across all leagues and competitions we can see that the two options are very close to 50/50. Having said that, some teams have a habit of scoring lots of goals, while others have more defensive strategies. To be successful in the Under 2.50 / Over 2.50 betting market, it is crucial that you analyze the teams carefully and see their top players form, motivations, line up and so on. All those variants are carefully studied by our team of football tipsters when they produce Over 2.50 tips.
Why the odd name?
Lots of people are confused by the name of this betting market. This is because there isn’t something like a half a goal. The reason behind that is if the market would have been called Over 2 goals markets, some punters could have lead to think that their bet was successful if 2 goals would have been scored. In the same way, if the Under 2.50 goals would be called Under 3 goals some people would think they have won if 3 goals were scored.
So to avoid any doubts, the bookmakers have decided to call it Over 2.50 and Under 2.50 goals market.
How To Pick An Under 2.50 Goals Or Over 2.50 Goals Bet
The main advantage of an over 2.50 goals bet is that once three goals have been scored, your selection has already won regardless of what will happen later on in the game.
The Under 2.50 goals betting can be a bit more tricky. You will have to hope that as the game progresses the total number of goals are less than 3. The risk is that your bet is over well before the match if teams will score a total of 3 goals early on in the game.
This is the main reason why we prefer picking Over 2.50 goals selections for an accumulator. If you are looking for a single bet though, the Under 2.50 goals could be a solid option if you find valuable odds.
Over/Under 2.5 Goals Statistics

How to calculate the attack strength of a team?
There is a mathematical formula that is used to see and compare the attacking strength of a team.
1 – First you need to take the number of goals that have been scored at home last season by the home site (for instance Tottenham have scored 35 goals in the Premier League). You can then divide this by the number of home games (35/19) and the result in our example would be 1.842.
2 – Now you have to divide this value by the season’s average home goals scored per game (1.842/1.492) and the result would be the ‘Attack Strength’ (1.235).
