The total is a number set by a sportsbook
for total points to be scored by both teams during a game. Betting Overs
is referred to as betting totals.
Example: Jess has no idea which team will win in the NBA game, but thinks there will be lots of points scored. The total the sportsbook has posted is only 75, so she's making a total bet on the Over.
