Total in sports betting is a type of betting on the total amount of the result (indicator) achieved for a certain period of time. You can bet on total in almost any sport.
Bets on total involve the implementation of a quantitative result chosen by the better within one event or part of it. Most often, this is the result on points in the format of a match or a strictly defined period of time (half, quarter, set).
Total recording format
As a standard, in the tables of odds of bookmakers, the total is displayed as follows: the indicator has a record of a fractional number with the corresponding letter designations over / under (B / M).

For example, in football, the standard total refers to the total number of goals scored in a match. As a rule, bookmakers set an indicator of 2.5, since according to statistics it is estimated that, basically, from 2 to 3 goals are scored in a football match.
As you can see in the image, the bookmaker offers to bet on the total over/under 2.5 in the match Ukraine – Switzerland. In this case, the total is less than 2.5, it means that no more than two goals will be scored in the match. Such a bet will have the recording format TM 2.5. Total over 2.5 means that at least three goals will be scored in a match. Such a bet will have the recording format of TB 2.5, respectively.
The fractional value in the format of the total record is intended to clearly understand the border of the numerical value (2 or less / 3 or more), so that the better can understand exactly what result he should bet on.
The Asian total is somewhat different from the European one, which is usually called half or just ordinary (standard). The Asian total involves three outcomes and has a more flexible structure, which allows you to make more accurate predictions for the outcome of the event.
Asian total has two recording formats:
- As an integer (multiple of 1);
- As a quaternary number (multiple of 0.25)
- For clarity, an example of the Asian total in football will be given.
In the first case, the recording format looks like TB 2.0 or TM 2.0. This means that with a result of 1 goal or less, the bet of Under 2.0 wins, and with 3 goals or more, the bet of Over 2.0 wins. The third possible outcome is exactly 2 goals. In such a situation, the money is returned to the player’s account, that is, it is played at a bet with a coefficient of 1.
In the second case, the bet on the Asian total has the format of writing TM / TB 2.25 or TM / TB 2.75. In other words, the format is a multiple of 0.25. This means that the player’s bet is divided equally into two possible outcomes.
Let’s say it’s TB 2.25. Further, if the final result of the match is 1 or less goals, the bet loses, if 3 or more, both outcomes of the bet win. If the match score is exactly 2 goals, one outcome (half of the bet) is considered as TB 2.0, that is, a refund to the user, and the second outcome as TB 2.5, that is, a loss.
To simplify, we can express a bet with a quaternary fraction as two bets in the format of the nearest whole and half numbers (- 0.25; + 0.25). For example, a bet under 2.75 is two bets with equal amounts on under 2.5 (- 0.25) and under 3.0 (+ 0.25)
