If you are new to the field of football betting and learning for how to bet on football, you must have heard over-under. Over Under are the bets in which a score of a sporting event is forecast. The forecasts consist of predicting whether the score will be above, “over”, or below, “under” of a certain amount.
What does Over Under mean in football betting?
One of the most common bets that are usually made in football matches are those known as Over / Under. Within this modality, the most normal is to bet on the number of goals that can score in a match, where you bet on a certain range of possibilities.
Over / Under bets:
Let’s put an example match between Barcelona and Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga, of Over 2.5 goals and Under 2.5 goals. Why decimals? This is used to make clear how many goals we are placing the bet. That is, if we bet on Over 2.5 goals, to win the bet you have to add all the goals scored by both teams and if the result is three or more goals you win, regardless of whether they have been 1-2, 0-6 or 2-2.
Following this dynamic, it is not difficult how it will be to bet on Under 2.5 to win the bet you would have to add. All the goals of both teams at the end of the match and if the figure is 2 goals or less there will already be a prize.
Normally in very disputed games where descent is usually played, for example, Under is usually bet. It is often the case that when a team manages to score, it usually closes ranks to avoid against the opposing team. Further protect the point achieved, although countless things can happen and make the match a real festival of goals.
Despite this, this type of Over / Under betting is not limited to the number of goals. There are online betting houses that accept other types of bets such as the number of cards or corners. In other sports, they have also accepted these bets, such as the number of sets in tennis, fouls or free throws in basketball, etc.
