Goal betting tips – Overs

We’ve just launched our very own betting stats app – On the ball app – Click here to download free on iTunes and our goal betting tips are now coming with the % chance. These are the highest rated bets with the best odds to get some good odds and some real value. We’re taking all 7 as a goals accumulator and each of the doubles individually, with decreasing stakes on over 3.5 goals & BTTS as its a tougher market to hit.

UPDATE – Goals tips can now be found via our On The Ball Twitter page – @ontheballapp

Why these games? We’ve used the stats for each game to identify the teams with the most games over or under 2.5 goals of the last 5 games. We then check them against the odds to make sure we’re getting a decent value in the bet – we don’t really want odds of less than 1.7ish really. Thats all there is to it! It’s a case of using the stats and our knowledge and experience to get a view of the market for a weekend and getting the best 6 bets that are on offer, we cover all the major leagues on Europe.

over 2-5 goals betting tips

What is over 2.5 goals?

Our over 2.5 goal betting tips mean that for the overs we need at least 3 goals in a game to win the bet. It does not matter how many goals go in just as long as we get the minimum of 3, as soon as the third goal goes in the bet is won. With under 2.5 goal betting tips its exactly the opposite, if we get 3 goals in a game thats the point we lose our bet.

You’ll see on the bookies sites that the overs goal markets have a range of options but we find the best value is on over 2.5 goals where the odds are 1.55 or greater. We don’t see any point in backing this market when you get odds as low as 1.2 as although these games often land the risk isn’t worth the reward. Other goal markets you can back are under or over – 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 & 4.5 – some bookies offer over and under 5.5 goals too. In play these increase if there’s a lot of early goals. We back all our over 2.5 goals tips before the game and don’t ever cash out – this is just a personal choice of if we’re happy with the bet when we place it then we may as well go for the big win!

Where to bet on over 2.5 goals

This is a really popular bet so the market is offered by all bookies. For backing an over 2.5 goal coupon we find the bet365 app to be the easiest by far. Every week when we post our over 2.5 goal tips we will show you which bookie has the best odds. Its always worth backing at the highest odds for the biggest reward and if you’re new to that bookie bagging yourself a free bet.

Currently there’s no dedicated over 2.5 goal special offers but there is the option of acca insurance on the bet. If you back it on the William Hill app then you’ll get acca insurance on the 6 fold so if we miss by one result we’ll get our stake back as a free bet under the extended terms of this offer.
