What is Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals?
A Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Bet comes under the category of a Double Bet. To successfully win a Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Bet, you must accurately predict the winner of a match to be contested, or determine whether the fixture will end in a draw.
You must also successfully predict whether the combined tally of goals for both teams, will either be equal to or more than 3 goals, or equal to or less than 2 goals. This betting variant includes injury time, but does not include extra time.
To put it into perspective, you must choose whether the match will lead to a ‘Home Win‘, an ‘Away Win‘, or a ‘Draw‘, and predict the outcome with respect to the Over/Under 2.5 Goals Market.
This betting variant is a combination of three different single betting variants. A Match Result Bet requires to successfully predict the winner of a match, or declare the fixture to end as a draw, come the end of the game.
An Over 2.5 Goals Bet requires you to successfully predict whether both teams in a match will score 3 goals or more, while an Under 2.5 Goals Bet requires you to determine whether both teams in a match will score 2 goals or less.
It must be noted that a Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Bet combines only 2 of these single betting variants at a time – A Match Result Bet coupled with either an Over 2.5 Goals Bet, or an Under 2.5 Goals Bet.

To put a Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Bet into perspective, let’s take a match between Real Madrid and Barcelona as an example. The match ends 2-1. For you to win a bet, you must predict that Real Madrid will win, and that the number of goals will be Over 2.5.
Match Result and Over/Under 1.5 Goals Bet

You must also predict whether both teams contesting in the game, will score more than, or equal to 2 goals, or less than, or equal to 1 goal.

Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Betting Tips and Strategies
When it comes to placing a Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Bet, you must first perform your due diligence, and gather statistics with respect to high and low scoring teams and leagues, and teams that win, or draw the most matches. You must also look into fixture history, team news, and injury news, among other statistical insights to the possible outcome of a match.
As this betting variant can combine a Match Result Bet with either a low or high scoring possibility, you have to look at this betting variant in two different ways. For the Match Result and low scoring variant, you must look towards low scoring teams, and leagues. There are several teams that employ a stringent defensive system to thwart the flow of goals. Italian teams are well schooled in the art of defending, and good teams in the Italian Serie A, like Juventus and Inter Milan see less goals scored against them.
Similarly, when a weak opposition is playing against a stronger opposition, the weaker opposition tends to sit back, and defend. The weaker opposition looks to stem the flow of goals, frustrate their opponent, and possibly score on the counter. You must look to place a Match Result and Under 2.5 Goals on such matches, and on teams who keep the most clean-sheets, as well as teams that have conceded the least goals, in due course of a season.
Matches contested between two very strong oppositions too, may result in a low scoring affair, as neither team may look to pull the trigger, and rather see out the game as a draw, than lose the match altogether. That being said, Torpedo-MAZ Minsk of the Belarus Premier League, and Sparta Chisinau, of the Moldova Divizia A, are the lowest scoring teams in the world.
The other side of the coin, is with respect to a Match Result Bet, and a high scoring affair. You must look towards teams with a reputation of playing an attacking brand of football, or teams with world class attackers, and a solid midfield contingent. Real Madrid, Liverpool, Barcelona, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich are known to score a lot of goals, in due course of a season.
Punting on matches contested between these teams, and low and middle-table oppositions is a wise option. Similarly, punting on teams with a leaky defense, and little to no clean-sheets in due course of a season makes sense. You can make use of in-play betting, and punt on matches in which a team is chasing a match, as these matches may lead to goals being scored.
The Australian Y-League, and Hong Kong’s First Division are among the highest scoring leagues in the world. That being said, among the Top 5 Football Leagues in Europe, the German Bundesliga is the best Betting Market for an Over 2.5 Goals Bet, and the French Ligue 1 is the best Betting Market for an Under 2.5 Goals Bet.
Teams like Liverpool, and Manchester City lose very few games in due course of a season, and score a plethora of goals as well. These two teams are often the safest option for a Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Bet.
Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Accumulators
An Accumulator Bet combines several individual selections, into a single bet. To successfully win an Accumulator Bet though, each individual selection must be a win. When it comes to Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals Accumulator, you must be very careful, as this betting variant falls under the category of a Double Bet, and is dependent on two individual selections already.
You can choose to combine several safe options, like punting on big teams against weaker oppositions, as each individual selection may come with lower odds, but as a combined bet, will definitely yield higher odds, and the possibility of much higher profits.
What is Bookmaker’s Margin?
Bookmaker’s Margin refers to the margin above a 100% market, which a bookmaker holds over you. This margin is the profit a bookmaker commands, and higher is the margin, lower are your chances of winning a bet. A competitive market sees a bookmaker offer odds closer to the ideal mark of 100%.
Before placing a bet, you must scout several bookmakers, and choose a bookmaker which offers the best possible odds, for the bet that you want to place. You can calculate the margin a bookmaker holds over you, by calculating the Odds Overround. You can determine the Odds Overround by first converting all possible outcomes of a bet into the decimal form, and dividing each individual outcome by 100.
You must then add all of these outcomes together. The closer is this number to 100, the more active and competitive the market is.
