Over/under 2.5 total goals accumulators are among the most popular with the <strong>best betting sites</strong>. Some teams find themselves involved in high scoring games more than others, while others feature in low-scoring matches because of their league position or the cautious nature of their managers. Here are three total goals bets that should be considered this weekend:

Can any team stop Bayern Munich right now? This weekend, Hoffenheim get the chance to answer that question positively, but it's not going to be an easy task. The defending champions have taken control of the Bundesliga after eight matches, but they are just one point clear at the top of the standings.

Bayern have won 11 of their last 12 league and cup games and they have been doing so in style scoring 55 goals in those contests while conceding just seven. Last weekend, Julian Nagelsmann's side led 5-0 at third placed Bayer Leverkusen who managed to score a consolation goal in the second half.

While over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet in Bayern's last 12 fixtures, Hoffenheim's last three contests have seen three or more goals scored. Over 2.5 goals at the Allianz Arena can be backed at <strong>2/9 with 10Bet</strong>.

In Spain, goals have been in short supply all season with an average of just 2.22 goals per game. Of the 86 matches played this season, 63 per cent have failed to reach the three-goal mark. One game that could see that trend continue this weekend could be Alaves' trip to Cadiz on Saturday in a relegation battle.</p>

 

Both teams will want to take something from this fixture so a goalless draw wouldn't be a surprise. Alaves' last five games have seen under 2.5 goals land while Cadiz's 2-0 defeat at Espanyol was their second successive game in which under 2.5 goals paid out which is available at <strong>1/2 with 10Bet</strong>.

On Sunday, Lazio travel to Verona in Serie A in a game that should be one of the more entertaining contests this weekend. Verona's last five matches have produced a total of 24 goals and over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet in all five. Manager Igo Tudor will be wondering how his side lost last weekend's game when they led Milan 2-0 with 59 minutes on the clock. But they conceded three times in the final 31 minutes to lose 3-2.

All but one of Verona's matches this season have seen a minimum of three goals scored and against Lazio, that sequence could be extended. For Lazio, it has been a solid start with just two defeats from their eight league outings already. Sitting fifth in the table, a win would help keep them in the mix.

A worry for Lazio manager Maurizio Sarri will be his side's inability to keep a clean sheet which have yet to do in Serie A this season so it's not unthinkable that Verona, with 14 goals in their last five games will find the back of the net and over 2.5 is priced at <strong>13/17 with 10Bet</strong>.

If you are fortunate enough to receive a free bet this weekend, why not use it on this.

Combined odds: 3/1 with 10Bet

Building an acca based on both teams to score offers greater odds because it relies on each team to score at least one goal. Teams might have spent a lot of money on a prolific striker who finds the back of the net on a regular basis, but if their defence struggles to keep clean sheets, then any hope of winning titles will be dented. Here are three BTTS bets that should be considered this weekend:

Atalanta are a wounded animal right ow after blowing a 2-0 lead in their Champions League tie at Manchester United on Wednesday night. They cannot dwell on that 3-2 loss and they need to beat Udinese in order to stay in the mix for a top four finish this season. It's the latest game in which both them and their opponents have scored.

Atalanta's last four league games have seen BTTS pay out and this weekend's home game with Udinese could well be another to add to the list. Udinese have drawn their last two games 3-3 at Sampdoria and 1-1 at home to Bologna to extend their run of games without a win to five.

Bookies 10Bet are offering odds of 5/6 for both Atalanta and Udinese to score when they two sides meet at the Gian Piero Gasperini Stadium on Sunday.

Following that contest, Levante host Sevilla in La Liga in a game that might be a slow burning game. Levante find themselves in the bottom three and they really could do with a win this weekend to ease their relegation fears. Without a win all season, Levante have failed to score in their last four matches.

Therefore, the chances of both teams scoring in this fixture are low and 10Bet are offering odds of 13/17 for both teams not to score this time. Especially when you figure in Sevilla's form in recent weeks. They have registered back-to-back clean sheets while BTTS has not landed in their last three games.

In France, Bordeaux can move away from the relegation zone when they face Lorient at the Stade du Moustoir. It hasn't been the best of starts to the season for Bordeaux with just one win from their 10 played. But their one win came away from home at St-Etienne so they know they can win on the road.

It won't be easy at Lorient who have lost just one of their last seven matches. Both teams to score has landed in Lorient's last three matches while Bordeaux's 1-1 draw at home to Nantes was the fifth time in their last six outings in which punters would have been paid had they backed both teams to score.

If you need any more reasons why BTTS could land in this fixture this weekend, look no further than the last five meetings in which BTTS has occurred and you can get odds of 4/5 with 10Bet for BTTS to land. Both teams won at home last season which will encourage Lorient.

<strong>Combined odds: 19/4 with 10Bet</strong>
