Total

Definition: The total is a number set by a sportsbook for total points to be scored by both teams during a game. Betting Overs or Unders is referred to as betting totals.
 
Also Known As: Over/Under Total
 
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.

Related Terms: Over, Over/Under Total, Under
