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 option among basketball tips over/under.
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 predictions under over and win 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!
