So, there is this pressing matter that I felt it should be attended to. The matter is all about football goals scoring abilities. To be precise, I am going to talk about what goals over/under means when it comes to betting.
As you all know goals over/under wager is majorly associated with football, thus, anything I am going to mention here will be related to football goals and not those other sports.
This wager is not that difficult to predict compared to other wagers. The wager is available in both live betting and static betting. The most common option that is available is the one for “goals over/under 2.5.” This is how the wager normally looks like. It does not depict any bookmaker’s wager but it resembles those that are found in the top bookies in the world.
When we say “over 2.5” goals, it means that either of the teams or just a single team must score more than 2 goals if the punter wants to win that bet. Else the results qualify to fall on the “under 2.5” option.
As the number of goals to be scored increases, the odds change accordingly. The “over” odds tend to increase while those of “under” tend to reduce.
Normally, before the kickoff of any football match, the wager offers only one option of “goals over/under 2.5”. However, once the game kicks off, the value 2.5 changes depending on the number of goals that might have or have not been scored at that time.
It is easier to bet on this wager most especially when the punter has done his/her research well enough to know the number of goals that might be scored in that particular game.
