College Basketball Over Under Betting Explained
Betting the total for a game is a bet on how many total points will be scored in a game. College basketball game total spreads are typically placed between 110 and 180 points. Similar to betting a college basketball spread, there can be a “push” if the total amount of points scored in the game exactly equals the total.
When betting college basketball totals, many sport books will allow you to “buy points”, which will change what the college basketball total is at adjusted odds. For example the a matchup has an over-under of 150 points. You like there to be a lot of points scored in the this game and want to take the over. However, you don’t quite like the line at 150 and you are projecting there to be 149 points. In this case you can “buy” two points and take the OVER of 148, providing you with a little more safety in your pick but at lesser odds.
College basketball over-under bets are 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, and that type of bet is referred to as team total betting. You can also bet on the total points scored in the first half or the total points scored only in the second half.
