Used to provide better odds between two teams of contrasting abilities. For instance, a Point Spread bet would see the underdog handed a points/run headstart in order to level up the playing field. The team you back needs to either defend the handicap or overcome it, in order for you to win your bet. The beauty of a Pointspread bet is wagering money on the losing team can still win you money.

Here, there’s no worries about which team will run out the winner. It’s all about the combined total of points/runs scored in the match. Sportsbooks will offer you certain lines (for example, 205 points in a NBA game) from which you simply predict if the game will finish Over or Under.

It’s said the stars need to align in order for a parlay bet to succeed. While this isn’t strictly true, a winning parlay bet does require a large degree of luck to fall your way. The deal here is a single bet that comprises of two or more selections. The more bets, the higher the return. But as alluded to, all selections have to be correct for you to win.

Like Pointspread and Over/Under bets, Prop bets are designed to add more variety than just your standard moneyline bet. Predict how many goals a player will score or the team will score the first touchdown.

Yep, these are actually outcomes you can bet on!
