Totals (All Sports)

When you bet on totals you are betting on whether the total points scored in the game will be higher or lower than the posted total. For football and basketball the payoff for a winner is $100 for every $110 wagered unless otherwise noted. It is customary that when making a bet that you put up the juice as part of your wager. Therefore, $110 will be wagered if you specify a $100 total bet. For baseball totals the total points seldom moves. Instead, line moves are done by applying a money line to the total.

Therefore, your payoff will depend on the money line at the time of the wager.
