#### What Is Over/under In Football? (Solution)

An over–under or over/under (O/U) bet is **a wager in which a sportsbook will predict a number for a statistic in a given game** (usually the combined score of the two teams), and bettors wager that the actual number in the game will be either higher or lower than that number.

What are the over unders in the NFL?

- That ‘certain number’ is the NFL over under or total. Much like the point spread, oddsmakers set the total and invite you bet over or under. For example, if the Giants vs Cowboys game has an over under value of 45.5 and the final score is 30-17, then OVER bettors win (because 30+17 = 47 which is greater than 45.5).

Now, both teams have to collectively score more points in order for the over to win. This also makes the under bet easier to win, as the teams can score more points, and you’d still win that bet. This should get more people to bet the under and fewer to bet the over.

## What happens if the over/under is exact?

## How do you bet the over/under in football?

## What happens if over under is tied in a parlay?

In Summary. Betting odds represent the probability of an event to happen and therefore enable you to work out how much money you will win if your bet wins.
