The over/under wager involves two parts: the total score and the number of possessions each team will have. In baseball, the over/under line is called the “double result” because the second game is usually canceled due to rain. A three-way line allows you to place a wager on the tie/draw as one of three possible outcomes. The payoff odds for over/under bets are typically a one-to-one risk-reward ratio.

In NFL games, weather is a huge factor. Teams that practiced in warm weather might have drastically different results in cold temperatures. Windy conditions can disrupt passing games and favor teams with a more run-heavy approach. Inclement weather can also affect the point total. Games that end quickly due to inclement weather tend to be lower scoring affairs. Therefore, under/over bettors should be cautious when betting in such conditions. In such a scenario, be sure to track the movement of the lines and bet accordingly.

Unlike most other North American leagues, the NFL playoffs have one-game, single-elimination styles. The better team hosts the lower seed in a Wild Card Game. The lower seed often wins this game because it played in a tougher division. In the NFL playoffs, it’s not about picking the higher seed, but about picking the team with the highest number. If you’re looking for a way to make some money on football games, you can always bet on the over/under.
