What does Over/Under mean?
Over/Under (or 'O/U', 'O-U') is a term used to describe a team (or teams) exceeding or failing to reach a particular Total
set as one of the main betting markets
. For example, if a Total
was set at 201.5 points in the NBA between the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies, a bettor
can choose to bet
on Over 201.5 points or Under 201.5 points. If the final score was Lakers (110) Grizzlies (100), there was a total
of 210 points in the game and thus it went Over 201.5 points.
