Under In Betting

Totals wagers are more commonly referred to as an Over/Under bet. The name of the wager is interchangeable and both are used in sportsbooks and in the media. A totals bet is one of the easiest and most popular bets to make in the sportsbook. The only more popular bet is picking winners. When you see a plus (+) sign in front of a price, it shows you that team is the underdog. Higher numbers like +400, +500, +5000, etc. Represent how much of an underdog the team is in the game. UNDER BETTING When you bet the Over Under, you don’t care who wins the game, all you are focusing on is the combined score of the two teams at the end of the game. Here is a quick guide to over.

Most bookies offer 3 choices of total goals: 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5. But some offer a wider range of options, like 2, 2.25, 2.75, 3, 3.75 and so on, that are a bit harder to understand and that confuses a lot a people.
