When a sports investor has many and varied betting options available for wagering on a contest, things can be a little confusing for the uninitiated or novice bettor. Clearly there will be options that are sports specific, but there will almost always be certain general betting products that suit all manner of sporting events – something as simple as the straight up “win” bet – is an example of a bet type that is common to nearly every sport. Let’s illustrate some of the betting offerings that a gambler or sports investor would encounter when approaching the betting window, or as is more regularly nowadays, when logging into an online sportsbook, to place your bet. Win Betting: The most simple type of betting proposition. The Boston Celtics will defeat the Chicago Bulls. In this type of wager we are betting on our selected team defeating the opposition. No further explanation is necessary. Pointspread Betting : We have received emails from many Australian punters asking for an explanation on how to bet pointspreads – other wise known as “handicap” or “line betting”. Very common in America – it involves taking a head to head contest and handicapping the two teams in the betting to achieve a market that is approximately “evens”. Example: Team A: -22.5 points, paying $1.91 Team B: +22.5 points, paying $1.91 The better team in this encounter is Team A, at -22.5 points, means that they need to win by 23 or more to win the bet or “cover” in betting speak. Likewise for Team B, who at +22.5, need to lose by no more that 22 points to get the cover. Team B winning outright is also a winning result for +22.5 in this bet type. 슈어맨 Parlay Betting: In a parlay, or “multi” as it is known in Australia, we connect two (or usually more) selected outcomes to enter in a bet together. If one of the outcome doesn’t eventuate, the bet is a loser. Parlays are higher risk for higher reward. The approximate payout is the result of multiplying the price offered for the outcomes. For example, let’s imagine in the first round of the ATP tennis tournament, we like Federer (price 1.02), Nadal (1.10) and Hewitt (3.40). Instead of betting these matches individually, we can parlay them into the one betting ticket, with each result being required to win for us to get our final payment. In the above example, we would receive the following payout if all three players won.
