Over under betting tips overview
Placing a bet on a scoring in a game of sports being lower or higher than a particular total amount is as ancient and popular as wagering on an outcome of a match. This activity is called under over betting: tips depend on the sport and come on goals, points, sets, games, cards, etc.
The major object of the over/under betting is a goal total. A gambler tips on the number of goals scored to be higher or lower a particular margin, typically over/under 2.5 goals in soccer.
There are three types of over/under tips based on their settlement:
- Totals multiple of 0.5
- Totals multiple of 0.25 (same as two-part totals)
- Square totals
There are two main submarkets of over under predictions:
- Individual or team totals
- Period totals (soccer half, tennis set, basketball quarter, hockey period, etc)
There are another three types of combined betting tips:
- Over under and win
- Over under and anytime goalscorer (or first, or last)
- Over under and both teams to score

Under over predictions explained
Over under tips are betting forecasts for a number of a particular event to happen more or fewer times than a given margin in a sports match, often its regular time (e.g. 90 minutes in soccer). This betting market is a universal one, so the event in question may be scoring a goal in soccer and ice hockey, getting a point in basketball, winning a game or a set in tennis, etc.
Moreover, Takebet South Africa offers over under predictions for betting on yellow cards, corners and free kicks in soccer alongside similar statistical events in other sports — aces in tennis and so on.
The most standard tip is a total multiple of 0.5. For example, a total of under 1.5 goals in soccer or a total of over 216.5 points in basketball. The former means that one goal or no goals must be scored in order for the bet to win, while the latter total sets a target of scoring at 217 or more points. Over under tips which are a multiple of 0.5 can bring a sports gambler either a win or a loss. There are no circumstances under which such a bet can be voided and refunded.
Asian over under betting tips is an alternative name for all over/under total bets. However, many bettors tend to call “Asian” only those totals that are either square (e.g. over 2 goals) or a multiple of 0.25 (e.g. over 2.25 goals). The latter can also be written down as a two-part total: for example, an Asian total of over 2.25 goals is the same as a two-part total of over 2, 2.5 goals.
Square Asian totals get you a refund if the final number of the chosen events is equal to your chosen total. For example, if a gambler bets on a total of over 3 goals in an ice hockey match and exactly three goals are scored in that match, then the bet is voided with a complete refund.
Asian totals multiple of 0.25 (e.g. two-part totals) are basically two different total margins combined into one bet, where one half of a stake goes on one side of a bet and another half — on another side. Both halves are settled as any other total. For example, a total of over 1.75 goals in soccer is the same as a total of over 1.5, 2 goals. One half of your money goes on over 1.5 goals, while the other half goes on over 2 goals. Then both halves are settled separately.
Individual or team over/under predictions are for totals of a separate athlete or a separate team in a sports match. For example, in tennis a bettor can wager on a total of games or sets won by a particular tennis player instead of all games or sets played in a match.
Example of an individual total: you bet on the Los Angeles Lakers scoring over 116.5 points in a match against the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers score 118 points by the final whistle, so you win.
Period over/under tips are on a particular phase of a sports game. In soccer, it is typically a half, in tennis it is a set or a game, in basketball it is a quarter, in ice hockey it is a period and so on. On top of that, such betting picks can be for an individual result of a team or a player.
Example of a period total: you bet on a set in a Novak Djokovic vs Daniil Medvedev match to span for over 9.5 games. Djokovic wins the set 6:4. You win the bet thanks to 10 games played.
Over under and win betting tips
Over under and win predictions combine a standard total with a match result and allows you to stake on both in one bet. This is a good gamble if there’s a clear favourite to win a game, which can multiply your total odds. Example: over 4.5 goals and the Colorado Avalanche to win.
Both outcomes must come true for such a bet to win.
Over under and anytime goalscorer (first/last) predictions
Over under and anytime goalscorer betting tips, same as the first and the last goal scorer, combine a regular total with a bet on a player to score a goal during a game.This bet option is popular with soccer and ice hockey bettors. Example: over 2.5 goals and Ronaldo to score.
Both outcomes must come true for such a bet to win.
Over under and BTTS betting tips
Over under and both teams to score predictions unite a traditional total with a wager on either both teams to score or not, with the latter outcome meaning only one or no team scoring. This bet option is reserved mainly for soccer. Example: over 1.5 goals and both teams to score.
Both outcomes must come true for such a bet to win.

Soccer over under predictions: 2.5 goals and more
Tips on goal totals are the top 2 most popular in the world when it comes to soccer. The over means sides have to score more than a designated margin, and the under means less. The most used margin in soccer is 2.5 goals. This is because 2-3 goals are scored in a soccer match on average, so on most occasions under over 2.5 goals offers equal odds on both sides.
Other popular options include 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 3.5, 4 and 4.5 goal totals, alongside two-part Asian goal totals (same as multiple of 0.25) in between the options mentioned above.
Example: you bet on under 2.5 goals in a Chelsea vs Arsenal match. If the game ends in 2:1, you lose the bet because the total number of goals scored was three (2+1=3). Same if the teams score more goals. However, such score lines as 0:0, 1:0, 0:1 and 1:1 all bring you a win.
In soccer, one can also bet on the total of cards, corners, free kicks and more.

Tennis under over betting tips: sets and games
In tennis, sets and games are typically used in over under prematch betting. Punters bet on the number of sets in a match or the number of games in a set to be over or under a particular margin. For bo5 fixtures, a total of 3.5 sets is the basic one, and for bo3 matches — a total of 2.5 sets. As for game totals, the basic margin is 21.5 games for a bo3 tennis fixture.
Totals are essentially higher in top men’s tournaments such as Grand Slams, where bo5 matches are played and fixtures between star opponents are often hard and lengthy.
Example: you bet on over 21.5 games in a Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal match. Djokovic wins the match in three sets with a score 6:4, 2:6, 6:4. You win the bet, given the total number of games is 28. However, a win in two sets with a 6:4, 6:4 score would have brought you a loss.
In tennis, there are also total betting tips on stats such as double faults, aces and more.

Basketball over/under betting picks
The most widespread basketball over under betting predictions are based on a total number of points scored by both teams in a game. In the National Basketball League, most times a team scores over 100 points, and when you add up points, you’ll be having over 200 and above. There is no exact usual margin for totals in the NBA — it is plus minus 220 on most occasions.
That said, other basketball leagues usually witness less points scored, so totals are lower there.
Example: you bet on over 218.5 in a New York Knicks vs Golden State Warriors match. The Warriors win with a 120:110 scoring. You win too, because the aggregate points total is 230.

Ice hockey over under picks
In ice hockey, the basic total is for goals, or pucks, as they are called here. Hockey is richer in goals than soccer, especially when it comes to the National Hockey League. The standard margin is set at over/under 6 goals in the NHL, with teams often scoring around 6 pucks.
Example: you wager on over 6 goals in a Carolina Hurricanes vs Boston Bruins game. The Bruins win 4:2. You get your stake back, because the number of goals exactly equals your chosen margin. However, if only the teams had scored one more puck, you would have won.
