The betting world has changed a lot in the past few years. With the rise of internet gambling and sportsbooks offering so much more than just match-ups, it is difficult to go back to what bets used to look like. Betting on sporting events has been around for hundreds of years and almost every major sporting event is covered with a plethora of different betting options available, like straight bets and point spreads. This guide will discuss some common types of bets in fun88 ฟรีเครดิต that are most profitable for sports bettors.
Straight bets are the simplest of all bets. A straight bet is a bet where one team will cover the spread and win. For example, if the Dallas Cowboys are a 7.5 point favorite against the Tennessee Titans, a sportsbook would offer Longshot Sports Capper at -7.5 over Under Totals +0. The odds to win on this Straight Bet would be 50-to-1. That means if you bet $10 on the Cowboys, you would win $500, but if they lose, your bet is refunded.
If the Dallas Cowboys were +7.5 and beat the Tennessee Titans outright, then that Straight Bet would not be a winner. $10 would get refunded without any payout. A common strategy when betting at fun88 ผิดกฎหมาย on a team that is favored by seven or more points is to place half of one’s wager on them to win straight up, and the other half to win against the spread.
‘Over’ or ‘Under’ Bets
An ‘Over’ bet is similar to a straight bet. The only difference is that if a team wins outright, ‘Over’ bets are paid out, while if they lose outright, they are refunded. This is the most common way to bet on the outcome of a game because the payout is much higher than a straight bet (88-to-1) and generally easier to win than an underdog bet.
Point spreads are the most common way to bet on a team. Point spreads have been around for almost as long as betting itself and they have undergone some major changes in recent years. Traditionally, point spreads would be expressed in terms of a half-point or a full point. However, some sportsbooks now offer up to 13/2 odds on both sides of the spread.
