Betting on the total more or less is extremely popular among players.
Some bet on parimacth the total in soccer, other players prefer to bet on the total in basketball or hockey, and some make such bets on other sports. But it does not matter, as the game strategy for betting on the total over/under is suitable for most sports. By using this game strategy, the chances of having a profit over the long haul are greatly increased.
Before we move on to the strategy of betting on the total, let’s understand what the total is and what are the bets on the total more or total less. So, the total is a quantity, in soccer it is the number of goals scored, in basketball – the points scored, in hockey – the pucks and so on by analogy. Based on this, betting on the total is a bet on the performance of the match. In the list of bets on the total betting bookmakers offer certain values, and the player has to choose, more or less than this value will be the effectiveness of the match. For example, the TM 3.5 for the soccer match Genoa – Torino. To win the bet it is necessary that more than 3.5 goals are scored in the match, that is, 4 or more. If less than 3.5 goals are scored, for example, the match ends 2-1, the bet loses.
Having sorted out the nuances, let’s move on to our strategy. The essence of the strategy of betting on the total more / less is to choose two matches in which a high probability of total more or less, and implementation of three express bets, each of which consists of two outcomes.
If the total more in two matches is chosen, then one express consists of the total more in two matches, the second express includes the total less than the first match and the total more than the second, and the third express includes the total more than the first match and the total less than the second. If at least one of the matches is played for the total more, the player will be in the black. Losing is possible only if both matches will be played at less total.
In the case of choosing the total less in two matches, the second and third expresses are unchanged, while the first consists of the total less than the first match and the total less than the second match. In this case, the player will be satisfied with the total less in one match, while the total more in both matches will lead to loss of all parlays.
Please note that when using this strategy it is necessary to choose the outcomes whose odds are not very different from those of the opposite bets. For instance, we can get a good odds ratio of 1.80 for a 2.5 underbal and 2.00 for a 2.5 underbal. In this case, the odds of each of the three parlays should be higher than 3.00.
Let us have a look at an example. According to the predictions, the total in Napoli – Dnipro and Sevilla – Fiorentina matches should be more than 2.5. In the match Napoli – Dnipro TM 2.5 is evaluated by odds of 1.85 and TL 2.5 – 1.90. And in the game Sevilla – Fiorentina TM 2.5 is quoted at odds of 1.80, while TL 2.5 – 2.00. Let’s proceed with the formation of expresses.
- The first parlay is ТМ 2.5 Napoli – Dnipro and ТМ 2.5 Sevilla – Fiorentina. Final odds: 1.85 × 1.80 = 3.33.
- Second Express – ТL 2.5 Napoli – Dnipro and ТМ 2.5 Sevilla – Fiorentina. Final odds: 1.90 × 1.80 = 3.42.
- The third express – ТМ 2.5 Napoli – Dnipro and ТЛ 2.5 Sevilla – Fiorentina. Final odds: 1.85 × 2.00 = 3.70.
We bet the same amount on each parlay. Let’s assume we have bet $100 on each of the three parlays. If the predictions are correct and in both games it will be broken by TM(2.5), then the winning will be 3.33 × 100 = $333. Net profit: $333 – $300 = $33. If one of the matches ends on a TL 2.5, and the second on a TM 2.5, the profit will be $42 or $70. And only if both matches end in a TL 2.5, which is unlikely with a thoughtful selection of matches, the player will lose bets.
