Basketball over under tips explained
Any bet on the number of points in a basketball game is aimed to predict if a total will be greater or lower than a given amount of points (a margin). In the NBA, the average total is around 220 points scored, which is high enough — and so are the over under totals. In other national leagues and international tournaments, totals and margins are basically much lower.
In basketball under/over predictions, there are standard totals (a multiple of 0.5) and square totals. Both or the latter one may also be called Asian over under basketball betting tips.
Prematch totals in basketball include overtime (OT) if the opposite is not specifically stated.
The standard basketball over under total is a multiple of 0.5 (e.g. 220.5 points) and can end up in either a win or a loss for a sports bettor. In the example above, over means 221 points or more while under means 220 points or fewer. This is the basic and the most simple total option.
Example: you bet on a total of over 215.5 points in a Chicago Bulls vs Denver Nuggets game. The Nuggets win with a 110:107 score. You win too, because the total of points equals 117.
The square basketball under over total is a multiple of 1 (e.g. 220 points) and can be settled in three ways: as a win, as a loss and as a refund. Being otherwise similar to the standard total, the square one brings you a refund whenever the actual total is exactly equal to your prediction.
Example: you bet on a total of under 210 points in a Brooklyn Nets vs New York Knicks match. The teams play 105:105 in the regular time plus OT. You get a refund thanks to the total of 210.
Now let’s explore the subtypes of basketball over under tips for betting.
Individual basketball over/under predictions are for a particular team or player to complete a greater or a smaller number of particular actions, such as scoring points. Such a bet can usually be made on a whole fixture or a particular period, such as a quarter or a half in basketball.
Example: you bet on the individual point total of the USA to be over 90 against Australia at the Olympics. The final score is 95-89 in the favour of Team USA. You win, given that 95 is over 90.
Period basketball over under predictions are for a particular period of a match — a quarter or a half — to see a greater or a smaller amount of chosen events taking place, such as scoring points. This bet can usually be made on both teams, on a single team or on a single player.
Example: you bet on a total of the first quarter of a Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks match to be under 45 points. The quarter ends with a score of 23:21. You win, because 44 is under 45.
Basketball over under and win betting tips
Basketball over under and win predictions are combined bets on the outcome and the total of a basketball game, in which both parts must come true in order for a bet to win.
Example: you bet on the Golden State Warriors to win against the LA Spurs and on the match total to be under 218.5 points. The Warriors win 110:106. So, the whole bet is a win!

How experts analyse basketball for best under/over predictions
Experts of Takebet South Africa analyse sports data and odds before providing our free basketball over under tips for betting. First of all, we pick stats of several previous games played by each team, which include the shooting percentages, field goals (%), 3-pointers (%), free throws (%), the number of turnovers, offensive and defensive rebounds, blocks and average fouls.
Injury update is closely monitored: if the team leader in stats is injured, lots of points are unlikely compared to when the team is fully fit. We explore suspensions: who is out and for how long.
The head-to-head record between both teams is researched: the total number of points scored in the previous meetings, who has won more meetings and the number of points each team has scored in their previous meetings. The last one is used to predict the over under and win event.

What is an under over basketball total prediction?
Tips on the basketball over under betting market let you forecast a total number of particular events (e.g. points scored) to be higher or lower than a chosen amount. Options are either a multiple of 0.5 (e.g. 110.5) or square (e.g. 110) totals. One can bet not only on total points, but also on the amount of statistical events bound to happen — rebounds, 3-pointers, blocks, etc.
Standard basketball totals with margins multiple of 0.5 can be either a win or a loss. For example, a total of 110.5 is a win if 111 or more points are scored, while 110 or fewer is a loss.
