What Is Sports Betting?

Sports betting comes in many different shapes and sizes. At its core, sports betting is putting money behind an outcome of your choice and getting paid if that outcome is achieved. If a bet is on the winner of a game, that is called a moneyline bet. If you’re betting that a team will win or lose by a certain amount of points, that is called a spread bet. If you combine multiple outcomes into one bet, that is called a parlay.Moneylines, spreads, and parlays are the most common bets to choose from, but there are also prop bets which allow you to have a vested interest in more specific outcomes, like how many points a certain player will score. The world of sports betting is vast, and there’s something for just about anyone.There are many reasons to bet on sports for new and experienced gamblers alike. Above all, it’s an easy way to add more excitement to your viewing experience, by giving you something more to root for. That’s rewarding in itself, regardless of the outcome.

Sports Betting 101

Curious about the types of sports bets?

Learn about all popular types of bets, including parlays, teaser bets, prop bets, and all the need-to-know terminology for betting on sports.

What is a Parlay Bet?

A parlay is a single bet that links two or more wagers; to win the bet, the player must win all the wagers in the parlay. If the player loses one wager, he loses the entire bet.  However, if the player wins all the wagers in the parlay, the player wins a higher payoff than if the player had placed the bets separately.

What is a Straight Bet?

A straight bet is an individual wager on a game or event that will be determined by a pointspread or money line.

Futures Betting

A futures bet is a wager placed on an event typically far in the future, such as which team will win next year’s pro football championship game or pro hockey championship series.

Propositions – Prop Bets

Proposition bets, or “prop” bets, focus on the outcome of events within a given game. Props are often offered on marquee games of great interest. These include Sunday and Monday night pro football games, various high-profile college football games, major college bowl games and playoff and championship games. An example of a prop bet is “Which team will score the first touchdown?”

Teaser Bet

A teaser is a type of football or basketball wager in which the pointspread is adjusted by additional points in the player’s favor on more than one game. In football, a player may move the posted pointspread 6, 6.5, 7, 10 or 14 points (10 and 14 point teasers ties lose). In basketball, 4, 5 and 6-point sports betting teasers are offered.

Round Robin Bet

A round robin is a series of parlays.  For example, a 3-team round robin consists of three 2-team parlays   (A + B, A + C and B + C).

IMPORTANT TERMS

Point Spread

The most popular sports bets are based on the point spread. The point spread represents the margin of points in which the favored team must win the game by to “cover the spread.” Bets on the point spread are usually offered at 11 to 10 odds.  For example, a player must bet $11 to win $10 for a total payout of $21 or $110 to win $100.

Money Line Bet

The money line represents the odds of a team winning the game outright without the use of the pointspread. The money line is expressed as a 3-digit number. For example, -150 means a player must bet $150 for every $100 he wishes to win, $15 for every $10 and multiples thereof.
