Markets

A market is sportsbook term for the type of outcome you’re going to bet on. Moneyline, Point Spread, Totals, Props—these are all different markets that revolve around different outcomes: who will win? Will the favourite beat the spread or will the underdog cover? Will the game go over or under a certain point total? Will my team win the tipoff? Different ‘markets’ let you bet on different things. Here are the most popular markets on PROLINE+:

A balancing scale is shown with an ‘O’ outweighing the ‘U’.

OVER/UNDER (TOTALS)

An Over/Under is a bet on whether the total score of a game will be over or under a certain number. You’ll sometimes see them called ‘Total’ Bets. Some Prop Bets can also take the form of Over/Unders. For example, betting on whether a football running back will deliver over or under a total amount of rushing yards.

OVER/UNDER ODDS & PAYOUTS

PROLINE+ odds are set using algorithms that are based on a range of factors including in-game activity and overall betting action, and they’re monitored by a team of sports analysts. You bet with, or against those odds. The decimal odds you see in an Over/Under matchup are based on the expected likelihood of each outcome happening.

OVER/UNDER (MATCH)
OVER 50.5
1.91
UNDER 50.5
1.91

The odds for this matchup are 50/50 because either outcome is just as likely. If the total score goes over the assigned odds, a $10 bet on ‘Over’ returns $19.10 (including the original bet). If it stays under the assigned odds, a $10 bet on ‘Under’ returns $19.10 (including the original bet).
