Over/Under bet definition

Also known as the total, this refers to the total amounts of points/goals/runs that will be scored in the game. Usually the added scores of the two teams that play.

If both teams combine to score more than the total, the over wins. If they combine to score less, the under wins.


Super Bowl LVI,  the over–under for the score of the game was set at 54.0 (adding bot team scores). Since the combined score of that game was 41, anyone who had bet on “under” won.
