Volleyball Total Betting

Due to the fact that the match lasts up to three victories in the games (sets) of one of the teams, bets on total in volleyball are becoming more and more popular. You can place bets on total in bookmakers both before the start of the meeting and in live, and in the latter case, the line is much wider.

Types of bets on total in volleyball

• individual total of the team in the game (the final number of team points in one game);
• individual total of the team based on the outcome of the meeting (the sum of the points scored by the team in all games);
• total total in the party (the sum of the points scored by both teams in a certain set);
• total match total by points (the sum of the points scored by both teams);
• odd / even total based on the outcome of the meeting;
• total total of games (from three to five).

Bookmakers in bets on total less or total more, may offer half a whole number, for example, TB 143.5, or an integer, for example, TM 144 (if the teams total 144 points, then such a bet will be calculated with coefficient 1).

The most popular volleyball total betting strategies are:

• bet on total less in the “favorite – outsider” match;
• bet on TM 45.5 in a party + catch-up.

Bets on total less in the match “favorite – outsider”

The “favorite-outsider” match strategy is based on the choice of such meetings in which there is a clear leader. The odds for the victory of such a team vary in the range from 1.1 to 1.25, and the meetings often end with a score of 3: 0 (0: 3) in games, so the most optimal bet in such meetings will be a bet on TM. It is recommended to make single bets using the flat strategy.

Bet on TM 45.5 in a game + catch-up

According to statistics, in about 90% of volleyball matches, at least one game ends with a total of less than 45.5. Based on these data, a strategy has been developed, which is actively used in the activities of professional bettors. To play by strategy, the following conditions must be met:

• you need to choose meetings of only women’s teams (exclude national team matches);
• the bet on the first game is made before the start of the match, the subsequent ones – in live (in the intervals between sets);
• the coefficient is selected in the range from 1.7 to 2.1;
• if there is no bet value on TM 45.5 in the pre-match line, then the game must be skipped;
• it is necessary to decide on the championships on which it is most optimal to bet on TM.

The authors of the strategy give a formula according to which it is necessary to place bets up to and including the fourth game. The first set (TM 45.5) is bet before the start of the match. If she wins, then no more bets should be placed on this match, and in case of defeat, the size of the next bet is calculated using the following formula:

C = (P + Y) / (k – 1), where

С – bet amount, P – fixed profit, Y – total loss, k – coefficient.

For example, in the selected match in the first and second sets the teams scored 46 points, and in the third – 45, then the size of the selected bet will look like this (the odds are given in accordance with the proposed line of the bookmaker):

• the rate on the first batch is equal to 100 conventional units (cu);
• the bet on the second batch is equal to: С = (100 + 100) / (1.9 – 1) = 222 conventional units;
• the bet on the third batch is equal to: С = (100 + (100 + 222)) / (1.96 – 1) = 440 USD

The third bet from the example condition turned out to be victorious, from here we calculate the profit:

440 x 1.96 – (100 + 222 + 440) = 862.4 – 762 = 100.4 c.u.

Regularities in betting on total in volleyball

• bet on TM in the third or subsequent installments, if the previous two ended with TB;
• bet on TB in the third or subsequent installments, if the previous two ended with TM;
• bet on TM in the fifth installment.

These patterns are not mandatory, however, according to statistics, they happen in more than 50% of cases.
