Over Under Betting Explained!
This type of betting market can be also known as betting the total and the most interesting part about this betting market is that you can bet on events that are not related to sport but in most cases it is usually for sport events. It is a really simple way to earn some money and we are going to explain this type of betting market a little bit more in this article than we did before because it is getting more and more popular.
As we already know the over under betting is the sports-book prediction of the outcome. In other words if we decide to bet on American football and the sports-book prediction for the Super Bowl is for the score of the combined teams to be 54 and you as a bettor should place your bet if you think that the score will be less or more. This is a great opportunity since you don’t care which team is going to score more or less points but you only focus on being on the right side of the total score.
When it comes to soccer (football) this type of betting market is usually focused on 2.5 goals. To make it simple, this means that you are going to place your bet either over or under having total 2.5 goals at the end of the match. But the half goal is confusing, right? –Well that half goal is actually there to eliminate the outcome of a push in the market because you need to either lose or win. There are some online bookmakers that will offer over and under 3.5 goals or over and under 1.5 goals and so on but it comes with different odds.
One of the most important factors when it comes to this type of betting market is to be aware of the shifting mark. In other words you should wait to place your bet on this type of betting market when the match is near and to read the sports news about your teams. If we take as an example again the American football, and there are some key injuries that happened to the favored teams before the Super Bowl and that might make many bettors to believe that these teams will not perform that well. And for each 10,000 that comes in to the lower side, the sports-book will down-shift the mark.
