In Over / Under bets, we forecast the total number of goals, points, games, etc. of a match exceeds (Over / More than) or does not exceed (Under / Less than) the betting house forecast.
This type of bet is one of the most popular sports betting houses worldwide.
The main reason is the fact that it is very easy to understand them, although to make an accurate forecast it is necessary to make an estimate, some even use historical data for this, of the possible result.
- For bookmakers, this type of format is one of the best because, together with the sports line, it generates a greater flow of money
- This translates into more economic benefits for both parties because being a widely used type of bet; there are also higher profits
Understanding how it works is very simple because, as we already mentioned, it is about overcoming or falling below the estimate of the bookmaker, Over / Under.
For example, if we bet on an Over, we will have to exceed the number set by the bookmaker, that is, the result will have to be greater than that floor.
Here the factors that come into play range from an analysis of the performance of the team or player in question to luck; as we must know, in sports, it all depends on how the teams or players behave so that the result can be somewhat unpredictable.
Depending on the event is the amount of Over / Under that bookmaker usually set because there are big differences between sports. For example, in football, the number of goals is usually much lower compared to the amount of points scored in basketball.
Why Should We Bet On Over / Under?
Betting on Over / Under is a great idea for many reasons.
One of them is the fact that we are much more likely to win if we are fans of that team or sport because we are more likely to know the performance of our team and so we can predict the outcome.
In addition, this type of betting is much easier to understand, which makes it much easier to bet even with your free bets.
So we do not have to complicate our lives with entangled betting systems, we only make our forecast, set the amount, and wait for the event to unfold to see the result.
