Basics Of Moneyline, Against The Spread Ats & Over Under
A team who scores and gets a lot of goals is very good for under/over 2,5 goals . Therefore, one half would be on TO 4.5 with @1.50 and the second on TO 5 with the same odds. The Asian total is the arithmetic mean between adjacent totals. Asian total is applicable to many match situations (goals, corners, yellow cards, etc.). For example, let’s take Total over 2.25 and Total under 2.75. A beginner, seeing combinations like Total over 1.25 or Total under 1.75, would hardly understand their meaning.
The final score of the match is a 1-1 draw – a total of 2 goals. The first half of the bet loses, and the second half of the stake is refunded. William Hill offers odds of 1/2 on under 2 goals being scored, and 1/2 on over 2 goals being scored. The final score of the match is a 1-1 draw – a total of exactly 2 goals. A popular bookmaker like William Hilloffers odds of 10/11 on under 2.5 goals being scored, and evens on more than 2.5 goals being scored. If you bet on the match producing over 2.5 goals and the final score of the match is 2-1 to Manchester United – a total of 3 goals, your bet wins and you’ll be paid out at 10/11.
Game scores aren’t the only places where you can encounter totals. Certain prop bets (over/under 30.5 home runs for Albert Pujols) or futures bets (over/under 90.5 wins for the Boston Red Sox) will also utilize over/under bets. Some over/under lines involve half points so that pushes are impossible. For example, if the over/under line were set at 205.5, scores with 206 or more will win the over and 205 and below win the under.
This means that Team B is favored to win by more than 22.5 points. If you were to make this bet and Team B did win by 23 points or more, and you bet $120 on the game, then you would win $100. Over/Under betting doesn’t get as much attention as point spreads and moneyline wagering. The oddsmakers’ total lines aren’t discussed on sports talk radio nearly as much as other wager types, and some bettors overlook it entirely. Football and basketball totals are made in the same manner aspoint spreads, as they’re designed to attract equal amounts of money coming in on both the over and under.
Gamblers must decide whether the odds reflect the true value of the game. If so, bettors can then wager on the number of points a team will win/lose by or whether a particular team will win the game outright. They can also bet on the total number of points scored in the game. There are lots of different over/under options available for games. It doesn’t have to be just the combined scores of the two teams. Maybe you want to bet the over/under on the points in the first quarter of a Phoenix Suns NBA game, or the first half.
But bettors generally like odds like that, because anything close to even money is a nice payout, no matter the size of the bet. Let’s say the Arizona Cardinals are playing the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. Many bettors will only be looking at the moneyline or the point spread betting odds. Let’s say these are two very good defensive teams, at least statistically, so the operators set the over/under betting line at 33.5 points. In betting, the most popular bets generally are on teams winning games outright.
