OT does not count when betting on FIFA World Cup knockout (Round of 16) matches with some exceptions.  See below.

Dave Mason of BetOnline tweeted:

Plenty of newbie soccer bettors getting down on the #WorldCup. Remember - now that we are at the Knockout Stage, the spread, 3-way ML and totals are graded based on score at end of regulation. OT doesnt count.

To be competitive, it is possible that a handful of online gambling websites do count overtime, so be sure to check out the site in which you placed your World Cup wager.  It must be stressed, this is not the norm.

OT bets can be graded, however, when offered as a prop. The extra time bet is typically a YES or NO option.
