Frequently Asked Questions
How do you win Over and Under in betting?
To win Over/Under bets, you need to accurately predict whether the total number of points/goals/runs scored will be higher or lower than the number the sportsbook set.
What does over 1.5 mean in betting?
Over 1.5 means that there will be two or more goals scored during the match. If the number of goals is lower than that (one or zero), you lose your bet.
What happens if the Over/Under is exact?
The Over/Under bet is rarely exact as bookmakers include half-points or half-goals. However, if the sports betting site uses whole numbers, and exactly the same number of points scored occurs, your bet stake is returned.
Is it better to bet Over or Under?
It depends. If you want to enjoy matches, it is much better to bet Over, as you will cheer for the teams to score. However, if you are sure that a game will result in a low number of points or goals, it is better to bet Under.
Do Over/Under bets include overtime?
If you are betting on basketball and American football, the Over/Under bet also includes overtime. But that's not the case with all sports. For instance, when you bet on football (soccer), extra time and penalties are not included in Over/Under bets.
