What is Total
Betting on totals – also known as the Over/Under – is one of the most common ways to wager on sports. Oddsmakers determine the total amount of points scored by both teams and set that number as the betting total.
Team A and Team B are estimated to combine for a total of 52 points in their football game.
Bettors can either wager that the final combined score with be Over 52 points or that it will be Under 52 points. Should the final score combined for exactly 52 points, the game is graded a push and all bets are returned.
