2007.04.27 19:06, Own composition
For some part of events bookmakers make accessible different versions of the same match (for e.g. half time result, number of goals in the match etc.). Here you can find notations explanation.under/over - it`s about typing, whether in the game more or less goals, points etc. will be scored. For e.g. if in such bet the rate will be 2.5 this means, that in the match number of goals will be under 2.5 (0, 1, 2) - if you think so, you choose the first option, if more than 2.5 - then you need to bet on the second option (three goals ore more scored in the match by both teams). This type of bet you can find marked with LB (which stands for goals number).
handicap - in bookmaking bets you might find for e.g. handicap -1, then the favorite of the match has one goal(point) subtracted on the start or +1, then weaker team has one goal(point) added to the final result. For e.g. match Real vs. Osasuna will end with 2:0 result, then if you had bet a handicap (-1, +1) the final result in your match will be 1:0. The Real team will have one point subtracted. Such type of bet can be marked as follows H (0-1).
