One of the most popular options for betting on football matches is betting on Under/Over 2.5 goals scored by both teams in the match. This is because the odds for this bet are available for almost all football matches and besides, this type of betting has a great advantage, as there are only two possible outcomes from the bet. By comparison, when you bet on the winner of the match, you have three possible outcomes – home win, away win and a draw.
