Betting on the over/under, also known as the total isn’t very complicated. This total is the runs scored by both teams combined. You can bet either over the total or under.
Here is an example:
Los Angeles Dodgers T:8
The over/under on the game is 8. If you bet the over and both teams combine for more than eight runs, you are a winner. If you bet under and the teams combine for less than eight runs, you are a winner. If the final score is Atlanta 5 and Los Angeles 4, the game has gone over. If the final is Atlanta 4 and Los Angeles 3 the game has gone under. If Atlanta wins 5-3, the total of 8, makes it a push. No money is won or lost on a push.
