What is Over/Under betting? How to bet on totals explained – Covers

What does Over/Under mean?

The Over/Under is a set of odds in which you bet on whether the combined score will add up to more or less than the projected total number set by oddsmakers.

If you believe there will be more points scored than the projected total, you would bet the Over. If you believe there will be fewer points scored than the projected total, you would bet the Under.

Over/Under betting, or totals betting, is one of the most popular options for sports bettors along with the point spread and moneyline.

Total bets are simply based on the number of points scored, without any link to the outcome of the game. Over/Under betting is found in almost all sports, including the NFL, college football, NBA, MLB, and NCAA basketball.

Let’s look at the betting total from Super Bowl LIV as an example of how to read Over/Under odds.

The Over/Under total odds from Super Bowl LIII between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs

Based on these odds, the Over/Under for Super Bowl LIV between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers was 53 points. Each side of the total – the Over and Under – is assigned a cost of placing that bet, also known as juice or vig. The vig for most Over/Under bets is -110 on each side, which means in order to win $100

Some useful football betting money management tips – Football-Talk

Money management should be a vital part of any successful football betting strategy and most serious bettors will manage their bankroll effectively. Let’s take a look at some useful hints and tips to help you manage your money.

Start with a sizeable pot

Many regular bettors just throw £20 or £30 in to their account on a Saturday morning and blow the whole lot in one go – usually on risky bets or accumulators. Why? It’s seen as a disposable amount of money that they can ‘afford to lose’. It’s not seen as a significant amount so they don’t fully respect it. However, the £20/£30 all add up and before you know it you’ve lost £100+ in a month. If you deposit a larger initial amount, for example £200+, then you’re far more likely to respect that money as it’s regarded as a sizeable figure. Bettors will then take more care of their bankroll and studies show they’re more likely to research their bets and make more sensible betting decisions.

Keep records

The vast majority of online bookmakers allow you to access records of all your bets which can be exported to an excel spreadsheet. This makes it easy to log all of your bets and you can track

Colorado: We’ll Be Ready For Sports Betting May 1 – Sports Handle

If all goes as planned, the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission will be ready for legal Colorado sportsbook operators to go live on May 1. The question is whether there will be any sports to bet on.

According to the text of the state’s sports wagering law,  HB 19-1327, the state must be prepared for live sports betting by May 1, but with the COVID-19 crisis sweeping the world, there will be little to bet on come May 1.  U.S. major professional sports have been shut down since March 12, and many operators are offering odds on Belarus soccer, eSports, darts and otherwise getting creative to fill the gap.

The only (small) hope for a U.S. sport to restart sooner rather than later appears to be the NBA, which according to an ESPN report is considering playing out the rest of its season and postseason “in a bubble,” similar to what the Chinese Basketball Association has been attempting to do.

Cuban: ‘Sports plays such an important role’

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver have both discussed the idea publicly.

“Hopefully, by the middle of May, we’re starting to get back to normal, and the NBA is playing games … Maybe not with fans, but we’re playing it because sports plays such an important role. You know, people want something to cheer for, people want something to rally around, people want something to be excited about.” Cuban said on radio station WFAA.

Types of Roulette Bets – Roulette Probabilities, Tips, and Strategy –

A Hand With a Dice Cup and a Roulette Wheel Falling out of It

Real money roulette is one of the most popular games of chance, due to the fact that the odds are so much better in your favor than many other games at a casino. It’s a little overwhelming when there are so many different types of bets and the payouts differ depending on the probability of the bet you’ve placed.

In the following post, you will learn the basics of the different bets you can place, the payouts for each bet, and an overview of some strategies that are common to maximize the entertainment and chances of hitting it big at a roulette table.

American Roulette tables consist of 18 red numbers, 18 black numbers, a green 0, another green 00 space, and nine additional spaces that denote the less specific bets that are made (odds, evens, reds, blacks, etc).

Types of Bets

For this entry, we’ll cover the two most basic sets of roulette bets, known as outside bets and inside bets. There are also bets known as announced bets, which are more advanced and are uncommon in American Roulette. I won’t be covering those here.

An outside bet gives you the best odds, which also means the least payout. I would recommend that you get to know the table with these bets because you are

How to Make a Live Team Bet at a Sportsbook – BettingPros

For many sports, there is less than a 24-hour period from when betting lines are released to when a game starts. Football usually offers a bigger window of time to place wagers, as lines are posted early in the week. However, many bettors prefer to wait until closer to kickoff to place their bets as they receive more information about things like injury news and weather.

What happens if a bettor did not have enough time to place their wager before an event begins? Have no fear, as many sportsbooks offer live betting on most events.

What is a Live Bet?

A live bet is a bet that you can place after an event has already begun. Sportsbooks will constantly adjust their odds, depending on how the game is playing out.

Live betting is not just for people who are late to place their pregame wagers, however. Many bettors strategically choose to wait to place their wagers because they prefer to witness the flow of a game.

The timing of a live bet is very important. Some sportsbooks update their live odds after every basket, missed shot, pitch, or first down. If live betting is something you think you would be interested in, I suggest tracking a sportsbook’s live bets on their app or on their odds boards in person. This will give you a sense of just how quickly the odds can change.

European hedge funds struggle as short-selling bans disrupt strategies – WHBL News


By Maiya Keidan and Clara Denina

LONDON (Reuters) – European hedge funds struggled to navigate the coronavirus-induced extreme market volatility during March, with many down by double-digits in the space of a few weeks as short-selling bans hampered their strategies.

Regulators in France, Italy, Belgium and Spain ordered temporary short-selling bans to stop investors betting on a fall in the share price of companies ranging from Spanish bank Santander to Air France-KLM and Italian automaker Fiat Chrysler .

Short-selling is a strategy often used by so-called ‘event-driven’ or ‘merger-arbitrage’ hedge funds that bet on takeover or merger deals, reducing their risk by shorting, or selling, the acquirer and buying the target company.

But sources said the short-selling bans prevented such funds deploying their strategies against a number of companies, including French payment firm Worldline’s planned acquisition of peer Ingenico , Alstom SA’s purchase of Bombardier’s rail division and Ray-Ban maker EssilorLuxottica’s bid for Dutch opticians group GrandVision .

“Short-selling bans amplified market movements in recent days and hit several long-short equity and event-driven strategies,” Philippe Ferreira, Senior Cross Asset Strategist at Lyxor Asset Management told Reuters.

This site is here to help you make the best decisions for your trip to Las Vegas. Whether you are going on a girls’ weekend, a couple’s escape, or traveling for work, we have you covered. We’ll review all the hotels on the Strip, as well as giving you some helpful tips on how to get the most out of your time in Vegas. But first,  let us take you down memory lane with a brief history on how Las Vegas became the gambling mecca of the US.

A Brief History Of Las Vegas

What Are Sports Betting Bonuses and How Do They Work?

Sports betting bonuses are basically marketing tools. The idea is that a sportsbook offers customers, either new or existing, something extra to encourage them to play on the site. Usually this a chance to either save money (like a cashback bonus) or win money with no risk (like a free bet).

There are loads of variations of bonuses, and we are going to cover all of them further down.

How do betting bonuses work?

Every bonus works differently, but they are usually very straightforward. Sportsbooks advertise betting bonuses to encourage users to play, so it would be counter productive  if they made them really difficult to avail of.

The most important thing is to read the terms and conditions carefully, which we will also cover later on in this article.

How do you get a betting bonus?

Again, each one is different. Bonuses for new players often require you to type in a “bonus code” during the signup process. Sometimes, you can type in the code afterwards in the cashier. Sometimes, you don’t even need to type in a code and your account is just credited with the bonus automatically.

Bonuses that require you to type in a code, or take some other action like checking a box in the cashier, are referred to as “opt-in bonuses”.

The key to claiming your bonus is to carefully read and follow the instructions, but getting it is rarely complicated.
