NFL Over Unders Explained
NFL totals betting is wagering on 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. More commonly this type of bet is called an over under bet. NFL over under betting lines are typically set between 38 and 60 points. Similar to betting the NFL spreads, there can be a “push” if the total amount of points scored in the game exactly equals the total. NFL over unders can be an easy way to get into sports gambling because it's quite easy to understand and there are so many variations. For example you can bet the full game over under, 1st half o/u, 2nd half o/u, or you can bet the over under for a single team.
NFL Over Under Example:
The New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams are matching up and the over-under or totals spread has been set at 50 points. The odds for the score to go Over 50 points is (-110) and Under 50 points is (-105). When you are analyzing the game you really like the Patriots to score a lot of points but maybe don’t like the Rams to score as many as they are projected, so you bet the under. At the end of the game the score is Patriots 23 - Rams 13 and it turns out your original hunch was correct and your bet has hit. The under bet hit in this example because when you add the two scores together 23 + 13 = 36 which is less than the line which was set at 50 points.
