Sports Betting Types | Straight Wagers
A Point Spread bet is placed on one team to win against another, subject to the Point Spread.
The favorite is indicated by the minus sign "-" and the underdog is indicated by the plus sign "+". To determine the winner for betting purposes, the Point Spread is added to the final score of the team you bet on. Point Spread rules are as follows:
- To win your bet, the team you bet on must cover the Point Spread.
- On certain events you can adjust the point spread by buying points.
- Games that tie when taking the point spread into consideration are no action which means your original bet amount will be refunded to your account.
- The Point Spread may change between the time you place your bet and the time the event starts; regardless, your bet is subject to the point spread displayed at the time you placed your bet.
Money Line Bets
The team wagered on just has to win the game. The amount you lay or take for each game may vary. The money line that is read to at the time of your wager is the money line you keep regardless of any line movement.
Example: The player wagers on Miami -160 at Buffalo +140. If Miami wins then the player would lay $160.00 to win $100.00. If the player bet on Buffalo then the player would lay $100.00 to win $140.00.
Totals are also known as over / under bets. You bet that the actual combined total score of both teams will be over or under the number displayed in your bet. The winning team is irrelevant to this bet. Totals rules are as follows:
- If the actual combined total score of both teams is equal to the number displayed in your Totals bet, the bet is no action; this means your original bet amount will be refunded to your account.
- On certain events you can adjust the odds by buying points.
- You can combine a Money Line or Point Spread bet with a Totals bet.
- The Total amount may change between the time you place your bet and the time the event starts; regardless, your bet is subject to the Total amount displayed at the time you placed your bet.
