Over/Under (Totals) Totals soccer betting differs from totals betting in other sports. When you place a totals bet on soccer, you will encounter goals in multiples of 0.25. Since sportsbooks have predicted that the number of goals will be small, the totals are usually set at 2.25, 2.50, or 2.75. So if you stake on over 2.25 goals, your stake is halved.
This means that when it comes to betting, bookmakers study the average number of goals scored per match for the two teams involved in the fixture in question when assessing the odds for the Over/Under markets. If over 2.5 goals for a Premier League match is available with Pinnacle at 1.925 and another bookmaker is offering the same bet at 1.800, you know that you are better off at Pinnacle.
Soccer Live Betting Rules. 1. Live Soccer wagers are graded according to the result after 90 minutes plus injury time unless otherwise stated. 2. Live Soccer Asian handicap wagers are for the match from the point the wager is accepted, goals/corners/bookings that occurred prior to the wager being accepted do not count towards the live Asian handicap. 3.
Wagers on Half time are for the first half of the game only. This wager applies a 45 minute plus injury time rule. If you wager the draw for the Half time, and its 1-1 at halftime you win the wager. If you wager Brazil to win the first half and the score at halftime is 2-1 you win the wager.
OVER/UNDER betting is also called a totals bet. The total in any given sporting event is a combined score of both teams. The total for these games is a number that is set by oddsmakers based on how they envision a game will unfold from a scoring perspective. As a bettor, you would need to select if the total number of points scored by both teams will be OVER or UNDER the set total.
You add the underdog’s handicap to the underdog’s goals scored and if the total is bigger than the favorite’s goals scored, the underdog wins. Smaller, and the favorite wins. Simple as that. At the start, 0.5 was the only Asian Handicap bet available, and it was easy to understand. +0.5 simply cancelled out the draw.
Over/under betting can be applied to almost every sport game – be it a soccer, American football, basketball, hockey, tennis, etc. No matter what your preferred type of sport is, you can take part in the over/under betting system and predict the total combined score of a match to win.
The over and under betting rules in basketball and baseball are the same: the whole game is included. The two somewhat common case where the over-under odds are slightly different is in hockey and soccer. The standard or default is that overtime is included in all over under bets for hockey.
