We are using SiteMinder - https://www.siteminder.com/channel-manager/ Hope this is what you was after.
With the channel managers it depends on who you use.
The one we have linked to our property allows me to set prices as a base but then also amend each price for each OTA sepratley and not just for the OTA as a whole, I can amend each room type to a different price as well. That said there are channel managers that just allow you to set rate cards/seasonal rates and everyone (OTA) is the same - if you change one it changes them all.
The easiest way to avoid overbooking is by using a channel manager to keep your current avaiablity live, though this might be overkill for a small B&B/guestrooms etc.
The allocation of the number of rooms you have should stop this and your only real issue is selling via multiple sites at the same time so like Yosemiteparadisebnb said I would maybe consider droping your allocation to all the sites by 1 room, meaning you can never oversell even if two sites sell a room at the same time. Then manually manage that last room as soon as you sell your last room add it to just you main provider's site be it Booking.com/Expedia etc and sell it. It's a bit of pain but it's very easy to be distracted and lose track!
