How Does Goal Betting Work?

Betting on the football goal markets can be a great way to enjoy games that you are watching on TV.

With goals betting you are trying to find the line of how many goals are going to be scored in a particular game.

The most common of these is the Over 2.5 Goals market as it sits at the mid-way point for where the average number of goals is scored in football games around the world. 

Whilst this might make it sound like a bit of a 50/50 play, with a bit of knoweldge and some research you can more often that not pick more right than you get wrong.

The bookmakers often set up the selections as over 2.5 goals, over 1.5 goals but why do they use the .5? In short it is to help remove confustion as there is no such thing a half a goal in football.

This means that if you have backed over 2.5 goals in the game and it is 2-0 then there have only been two goals in the game so your bet loses. If it is 2-1 then the game has three goals which is over 2.5 so your bet wins.

Why Should I Bet On Over 2.5 Goals Tips?

So you see Man Utd and playing Liverpool and you think there will be goals but you don't know who will win? Simply back the goals markets then the overall outcome of the game is irrelevant to your bet.
