Super Bowl over under total

If you want to bet on the Super Bowl but are mostly clueless on which team will prevail, then wagering on the over under of the game might be for you. The most popular form of over under betting, also called totals betting, is wagering on how many total points will be scored in a game. Below we will look at what the game over under is for Bengals versus Rams, as well as some prop bets for the Big Game.

How to bet on the over under

Understanding how to bet on the Super Bowl over under is quite simple. There is a reason why the over under is also called the “total” of the game, as it represents the total number of points scored.

Most oddsmakers set the Bengals versus Rams over under at 48.5 points (odds may change in the days leading up to kickoff and may vary at different sportsbooks).

Using the 48.5 point total, if you want to bet that there will be 49 or more total points scored in the Super Bowl, you would bet on the over. If you believe that there will be 48 total points or less scored in the game, you would bet on the under.

Sometimes totals are set without a half a point (.5). For instance, some books may have the Super Bowl total set at 48 points. If the final score of the game wound up – as an example – Rams 28, Bengals 20, then the betting result would be a “push” and your bet would be refunded.

Prop bet options

There are hundreds of prop bet options for the Super Bowl, many of which have the same principle as a traditional totals bet. For instance, sportsbooks have set over/unders on the number of passing yards Bengals QB Joe Burrow will have and the number of receiving yards Rams WR Cooper Kupp will have. In fact, pretty much every skill player in the game will have a number attached to his potential production.
