How Do I Place a Totals Bet on My Sports Betting App?

Last Updated:

Placing a totals bet on your sports betting app is a popular way to bet on the total number of points or goals that will be scored in a game. Here are the steps to place a totals bet on most sports betting apps:

  1. Log in to your sports betting app and select the game you want to bet on.
  2. Find the “totals” or “over/under” section for that game.
  3. Choose whether you want to bet on the over or under for the total number of points or goals.
  4. Enter your stake, which is the amount of money you want to bet on the total.
  5. Review your bet slip to make sure everything is correct, including the total number of points or goals, the odds, and your stake.
  6. Confirm your bet by clicking “place bet” or a similar button.

It’s important to remember that the total number of points or goals must exceed the line for you to win an over bet, and it must be lower than the line for you to win an under bet. If the total number of points or goals equals the line, then the bet is considered a push and your stake will be returned.
