What is an Over/Under?

With an Over/Under bet type, you select whether the combined total score of both teams (or players) will be over or under a nominated score. If the total number scored is equal to the nominated score, the bet stake is refunded, however the nominated number is usually set to eliminate this possibility.

Variations occur between sports relating to the specific name of the bet type and how extra time is handled. The following table lists the sports where the Over/Under bet type is available and differences between sports:
