What does 2.5 mean in betting?

In sports betting, the term "2.5" typically refers to a specific type of bet known as the "over/under" or "totals" bet.


In an over/under bet with a 2.5 line, the sportsbook sets a line, in this case, 2.5, representing the total combined score of both teams in a particular game. The bettor then wagers on whether the actual total score will be over or under that line.


For example, let's say there's a soccer match between Team A and Team B, and the sportsbook sets the over/under line at 2.5 goals. If you bet on the "over," you win if the total number of goals scored by both teams is three or more. If you bet on the "under," you win if the total number of goals scored is two or fewer.

In cases where the total score ends up being exactly 2.5, it's called a "push," and the bet is refunded. However, it's worth noting that in some sportsbooks or betting markets, you might see fractional numbers like 2.5 to prevent a push outcome. For instance, if the line is 2.5 and the actual total goals scored are 2, the "under" would win, and if the total goals are 3 or more, the "over" would win.
