The total goals or goal-line is the number of goals that we think will be scored in total in a particular match in normal time 90 minutes, excluding extra-times.
You bet either over or under the goal-line. Where the total number of goals equals the goal-line, stakes are refunded. For instance, you bet on Total Goals Over 2, but the match ended 1-1 in full time, you do not lose or win here, so your stakes are refunded.
We have specially includes some very good examples on betting on total goals:

Total Goals Line
More Explanation and Bet Examples:
If you bet on ?over? when the line is 3, you lose your bet if one or two goals are scored and win if more than three goals are scored. If exactly three goals are scored, your stake will be refunded.
If you bet on ?under? when the line is 2.5 and there are one or two goals in the game, your bet wins. If there are three or more, your bet loses.
A split line bet can be considered two separate bets since your stake is divided equally between the two lines.
Split Bet Example
So, for example, if you bet $10 on ?over? when the line is 2 / 2.5 you are in fact betting $5 on over 2 and $5 on over 2.5.
In this example, if the total number of goals is 0 or 1 your bet loses.
If the total number of goals is 2 then half your bet is refunded and half your bet loses.
If the total number of goals is 3 or above then both parts of your bet win.
