Over 3 or TO3 is a betting market for bets on the effectiveness of a sports confrontation.

When placing a bet on total over, the player determines how many goals or pucks the teams will score during the match, earn points or win maps in e-sports.

  • total removals and substitutions;
  • total tie-breaks and aces.

In rare cases, bookmakers list additional markets; for example, if the total of the first half is greater than the total of the second, the parity of the total.

Some sportsbooks offer combined markets from 2 or more outcomes, for example, "Outcome + TO 3" or "O3 + TO3", but more often companies use a position with a fractional part - "TO 3.5".

A bet on TO 3 provides for the possibility of a refund if the match indicator reaches exactly 3 times during the main time.
