Some states offer limited forms of gambling (bingo, charity games, etc.) starting well before the age of 18, but all states require that players be at least 18 years old to bet on sports. 35 states set their legal gambling age higher than 18, which is unfortunate for sports bettors.Aug 26, 2021
A bettor could wager that the combined score of the two teams would be either more than or less than that number. Since the combined score of that game was 45, anyone who had bet on "under" won. The bet is called a push if the actual number exactly equals the over-under, in which case all bets are refunded.
In terms of sports betting, all but four states require residents to be at least 21 years old in order to take part, those being Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Washington where the age limit is 18 and over. Most legal sportsbooks around the country won't allow you to make bets with Venmo.
Over/Under Bet Payouts If you bet $100 on the over, you would win because 86+84=170. 170 is greater than 165.5, so the over wins. You would be paid out at -110 which would net you a profit of $90.91. If you bet the under and the score was under 165.5, you would be paid out the exact same amount for your bet.
A total, also known as an over/under, is a bet on the amount of points both teams will combine to score in a game. As a bettor, you're trying to predict whether the total score will go over or under a pre-determined amount. You're not trying to guess the exact number.Aug 23, 2021
