Over / Under in betting

by Alexandra Mihaiu on Betting Tutorial

What is Over / Under bet?

An Over/Under bet is a wager in which a bookie will predict a number of statistic in a given game (usually scores of two teams), and bettors wager that the actual number in the game will be higher or lower than that number.

In a clearer term, Over / Under bets are bets on whether the total number of goals/points in a match will be over or under a stated number.

Over / Under explained in details

If you don’t want to risk much when betting on a match, over/under is the perfect choice to go with. This wager takes into consideration the total number of goals scored during a match and gives you the possibility to bet either for or against a certain outcome.

For example, in a football match if you bet on Over 2 you will win if the teams score at least 3 goals and you will lose if they score 1 or less than 1 goal. If the match ends with exactly 2 goals, your stake will be refunded.

If you bet on Under 2.5 and there are only 1 or 2 goals scored during the match, you win the bet. If there are 3 or more goals, the bet is lost.

Some bookmakers, such as bet365 offer the Goal Line option for Over and Under a certain amount of goals. In this case, if you bet, for example, on Over 3 and the total amount of goals is 3, you will receive your stake back.

There is one more betting option for Over / Under which resembles a lot Asian Handicap bets: the Split Bets. In Over 1.25 Split bet you actually place two bets, one on Over 1 and one on Over 1.5; if the match ends with no goals, you lose the bet, and if there are 2 goals or more, you win the bet. If the final result of the match is 1 goal, half your bet is lost and half of it is refunded.
