Over and under in betting

Just what Will be Totals As well as Above Below Bets?

Point Spread Betting

NBA bettors then wager if the Rockets and Clippers will score more or less than 226 points combined. There’s usually slightly more value on the Under in these cases because most casual bettors want to cheer for 3-pointers and dunks and bet the Over. They tend to look more at the teams playing rather than the exact number, which is a big mistake – all the key scoring trends and stats are already baked into the Over/Under. Bettors then wager on more than 45 combined total points or less than 45 combined total points between the two teams. Both bets require the player to risk $110 to win $100, indicated by the -110 in parenthesis. If you think rooting for each team to score every time they have possession is weird, try taking the under and rooting against teams to score for an entire game.

Following the eight rules we’ve discussed doesn’t guarantee a payout. As Kevin Garnett so eloquently put it, “anything is possible.” But those considerations will increase the chances of beating the house. So, take that newfound knowledge of spread betting and give it the old college try .

If there’s a positive sign next to the odds, that indicates the amount of money you would win if you bet $100. If the odds on a tennis player said +150, that means that for a $100 bet, you would win $150. Now if there is a minus sign in front of the odds, that is the number that you would have to bet in order to win $100.

In this instance, your payout would be $210 if you wagered $100, and Tennessee wins by more than 3 points. Sometimes a line will move far enough to create a “middle” opportunity. Say the Texas Longhorns end up facing the Wisconsin Badgers in the first round of March Madness. If you have Texas early as a 5-point favorite, and I move the line to Texas –7 later in the week, then you can also place a bet on Wisconsin +7.

Wisely navigating between the two is key to betting successfully. Using our Tennessee-Vanderbilt example, assume it’s the third quarter, and the Volunteers are up by 17 points. Your sportsbook app might offer you an immediate payout of $150.

If Ohio State won and you bet to win $100 on the Buckeyes you would receive $100 plus your original stake of $360 returned back to you. Conversely if you laid $100 on Wisconsin and the Badgers pulled the upset you would receive $280 plus the $100 back that you used to place the bet. There may or may not be a moneyline, as sometimes a book will list these separately and finally the over/under is given. Injuries also play a significant role in spread adjustments.
