DIFFERENT TYPES OF BETS
Straight Bet – A wager based on the result of one team or individual
Money Line – A wager placed on who will win an event. There is no point spread.
- Favorites are represented by a minus (-) symbol.
- Underdogs are represented by a plus (+) symbol.
Point Spread – A wager placed on which participant will “cover the spread.” When you bet a favorite, you’re betting them to win by a margin that’s greater than the point spread. When you bet an underdog, you’re betting them to win outright or lose by a margin that’s less than the point spread.
Totals (Over/Unders) – A wager placed on whether the combined score of both teams in any given sporting event will be “over” or “under” the combined total
Propositions (Prop Bet) – A wager placed on an individual player or specific event within a given game. Prop bets typically do not have an effect on the final outcome of the game.
Parlay – A wager placed that combines a series of outcomes to occur into one bet. In order to win a Parlay bet, all bets must be correctly selected to ensure a payout for the bettor.
Round Robin – A wager placed on multiple parlay selections at once without having to create a separate ticket for each combination
Teaser+ – A parlay wager in which you are able to adjust the point spread or total in exchange for a lower payout. The more you change the spread, the lower the payout becomes.
Futures – A wager placed where the outcome will not be known until the distant future. This could be betting on the winner of the NBA MVP before the season starts. Odds are constantly changing as factors change throughout the season.
Pick ‘Em – An instance in which no team is favored. The two participants have equal chance of winning and there is no point spread.
