Sports Betting 101 - Total and Over/Under Sports Bets


Over/Under bets are available for all major sporting events from Football to Soccer to Golf.

Most over/under bets are associated with the total number of points scored in a sporting event by both teams. So if the total bet on Cleveland vs Toronto is 11, the over bet would win if both teams scored a combine 12 points or more, the under would win if both teams combined to score 10 or less, and if the final total is 11, the bet is pushed.

Over/under bets are also available on a single team or time frames. For example, you can bet that the New York Giants will score over 24.5 points for a game or that the Yankees/Red Sox will score under 6 runs in the first five innings.

After spread bets, over/unders are the most popular bets in American Sports.
