Total 2.5 is less – it means that the bet condition provides for the total number of points per game equal to 0, 1 or 2. Games where the points are less than 2.5 win. And less than 2.5 – these are numbers 0,1,2. More often this rate is offered on football and hockey lines.

If the sum of points is three or more, the bet is considered to be lost (since 3 is more than 2.5). The name of the glasses, depending on the type of sport, can be different: goals, pucks, as well as other indicators.

So, the main rule for passing a bet total of 2.5 is less in football and other sports is that the total number of scored indicators of two opponents is less than or equal to 2.

Please note that it does not matter which team wins or loses – what matters is the total number of game indicators collected.

Other variants of the designation “total 2.5 less”:

- Total 2.5 М;
- TOT 2.5 M;
- TM 2.5;
- Total 2.5 exchange;
- Total under 2.50.

## HOW THE TOTAL UNDER 2.5 IS CALCULATED

Bet result | Condition | Possible account |
---|---|---|

Victory | Less than 3 goals scored | 1-1, 0-1, 1-0, 2-0, 0-2 |

Losing | Over 2 goals scored | 2-1, 1-2, 2-2, 3-1, 3-0 and higher |

Return | The game did not take place, or the match is suspicious | – |

An example of a 2.5 M total bet in football at Betwinner.

As an example, consider an Arsenal-Lyon pre-season football match. The player made a bet in the amount of 1,500 rubles on TM 2.5 with a quote of 2.5. Let’s consider the possible outcomes.

Less than 3 goals scored in the match. Namely, the score at the end of the game became 2: 0

In such a case, the bet passes. The total amount of the player’s winnings is: 1500 * 2.5 = 3750

Teams have scored 3 or more goals. For example, the score became 2: 1

In this case, the player loses the bet.

## WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TM 2.5 AND TM 2?

The difference between these two outcomes is that with TM 2 , a refund is provided if the total score is 2. If the player bets on TM 2.5, then he wins the bet with two points. However, the coefficient for TM 2 is always slightly higher in comparison with TM 2.5.

So, with totals that have an uneven number (2.5, 1.5), there is no return. The bet total 2 less (even number) has a refund if the number of points is 2 per game.

## EXPRESS CALCULATION WITH A BET ON TOTAL LESS THAN 2.5

Suppose that the player has made a multi bet with three events, two of which have already passed, the total bet remains 2.5 less. In this case, exactly the same outcomes are possible as in the single.

Bet result | Condition | Possible account |
---|---|---|

Has gone | Less than 3 goals scored | 1-1, 0-1, 1-0, 2-0, 0-2 |

Losing | Over 2 goals scored | 3-0, 3-1, 3-2, 1-3, 2-2 |
