NBA Over Unders Explained

Betting the total for a game in a bet on how many total points will be scored in a game. In the NBA game totals are typically between 190 and 240 points. Similar to betting the spread, there can be a “push” if the total amount of points scored in the game exactly equals the total. NBA over-under can also be used to describe betting the total in the NBA.

When betting NBA totals, many sport books will allow you to “buy points”, which will change what the NBA total is at adjusted odds. For example the Warriors-Celticsmatchup has an over-under of 220 points.

You like there to be a lot of points scored in the Warriors-Celtics matchup and want to take the OVER. However, you don’t quite like the line at 220 and you are projecting there to be 219 points. In this case you can “buy” two points and take the OVER of 218, providing you with a little more safety in your pick but at lesser odds.

NBA totals and NBA over-under bets is the combined points scored between both of the teams playing in a selected game. There are also options to bet on how many points only one of the teams will score. This is referred to as NBA team total betting.
