What does Over 196.0 Points mean?
In sports betting Over 196.0 Points is an example of a total market you might see when betting on Basketball. When betting on the Over market you need the total points of a game to exceed 196.0 for your bet to win.
If the result total of the game is exactly 196.0 points it is known as a push, meaning the total bet results in no winner or loser. In this case the bettor will be returned the stake of their original bet but won’t be paid out as a winner.
For example if you placed a bet on an outcome to go Over 196.0 Points you require the end result of a basketball game to have a total (combined score of both teams) greater than or equal to 197.0 for your bet to win.
