What Are Totals And Over Under Bets?

If one side of the equation is heavily bet on while the other side attracts scant attention, then oddsmakers may adjust. Anything less than 40 points is considered a low-scoring game. Above that range and up to 50 points or so is about average. Games that go from the mid-50s into the 60s are considered high-scoring affairs. A game that’s anticipated to be low-scoring is generally set at five goals. In comparison, the higher end of the spectrum is usually six goals, with the occasional 6.5 making an appearance.

Sportsbooks will set an ‘opening number’ and then if needed vary this as game time approaches. Many factors influence the variation of the number post its initial setting. If the public vote with their dollars and bet heavily to one side of the market then the books will adjust to suit the bettors intent. If you bet on sports for any length of time you will without a doubt come across the Over/Under market, after all, it is one of the most bet markets in all of sports.

The totals bet is the only “mainstream” type of wagering that does not pertain directly to the outcome of the game, since it does not matter which team does all the scoring. Any other type of bet that occurs on events ancillary to the outcome of the game is classified as a proposition wager. There are some benefits and some risks associated with betting on futures. On the flip side, however, your money is locked up for a long period of time. If you bet on a particular team to win the championship and one of their star players is injured, suddenly their prospects of winning do not look quite as good. Sometimes, the team may just hit a slump partway through the season and lose a lot of valuable momentum.

Parlaying the first-half total of an NFL game with the game total represents an obvious example. Also, the teams generally don’t care whether a game is going over or under. They only care about winning, so they usually have no interest in helping you win your bet, though there are exceptions. Perhaps the biggest reason to bet the over under is they are generally some of the lowest-vig markets offered by sportsbooks. That is, the sportsbook keeps less of the money they accept , expecting to pay a fairly sizable chunk back to the bettors.

Over 1.5 goals betting is a bet on a match producing 2 or more goals. When you bet on over 1.5 goals you are betting on a match producing at least 2 goals, which is a statistically likely outcome that will usually pay out at under Evens. Under 0.5 goals betting is a bet on a match being scoreless. A bet on under 0.5 goals should be reserved for matches with very strong defences and weak attacks, or high pressure matches like the World Cup final that tend to produce low scores. An over/under goals bet is a bet on whether the total number of goals scored in a match will be higher or lower than the goal total specified in your bet.

One of the most popular ways to bet on sports these days is with live betting. Even as the game is happening, the betting lines adjust based on what’s happening in the game and you have the opportunity to place a bet. The same goes for the total but keep in mind that the number is constantly shifting.
