Components in choosing a bet to over/under 2.5 goals

- Computation formula at whalebets.com
Count the total number of goals scored in the last 5 matches of team A as host and Team B as a guest. Divide the resulting sum to 5, and if the resulting number is greater than 5 is better to bet for over 2.5 goals in the match, respectively if the number is less than 5 you bet for under 2.5 goals.
Example: we decide that we will bet on over/under 2.5 in the match between the teams Everton and Leicester City. We take the last 5 games of Everton as host and last 5 of Leicester City as a guest.
- Everton: Hull City – 4:0
- Everton: West Bromich – 3:0
- Everton: Sunderland – 2:0
- Everton: Bournemouth – 6:3
- Everton: Manchester City – 4:0
The total number of goals scored and conceded goals of the home team in the last 5 matches as host is 22.
- West Hamp: Leicester City – 2:3
- Swansea: Leicester City – 2:0
- Burnley: Leicester City – 1:0
- Southampton: Leicester City – 3:0
- Middlesbrough: Leicester City 0:0
The total number of goals scored and a goal scored in the last 5 games as a guest is 11
(22 + 11): 5 = 6.6> 5 => we are betting on over 2.5 goals in the match.
