What is the Over/Under?

An Over-under, O/U or Total Bet is a wager where odds makers predict a number for a statistic in a game or sporting event. The number can be a predictor of the total combined score, individual team score, player performance (prop), etc. When you bet on it, you can take either the OVER or ‘more than’ side, or you can bet on the UNDER which means you are predicting ‘less than’ the oddsmakers number.

What happens when an over under ties?

If the final score or statistic is tied evenly with the oddsmakers over/under number, then it is a push and bets are refunded in full.

What is the .5 point on an over/under?

The .5 is called a ‘half point’. If you see a half point on an over or under, it means that there is no chance for a tie or push. So, if you take over 21.5 team points in a football game, then the team needs to score 22 points for your bet to win. If you take under, your bet wins on 21 points or less.
