If you’ve ever wanted to place a bet on a sporting event, but were overwhelmed by all the talk of odds, point spreads, bookies, and sports-books, relax. We’ll have you ready to join the action in no time. While at first glance the world of sports betting can seem to be a complex one, it’s not nearly as daunting as it may first appear.
Sports gambling has been around since the beginning of the United States, and the colonists were known to have wagered on fighting, horse racing, and even cockfighting.
Gambling was a long-time tradition in England and it was only natural the colonists would bring their love of gambling across the ocean with them.
In the 1800s, pedastrianism was the sport of choice among gamblers. But the sport eventually fell victim to race-fixing and other corruption and the public lost confidence in it. At that time baseball was beginning to grow, but as the popularity of baseball increased in the later part of the century, so did baseball betting, and the popularity of wagering on the sport was brought to the forefront during the 1919 World Series, which will live on in infamy as the Black Sox Scandal.
College sports, such as football and basketball, began to catch the public eye in the early stages of the 20th century, and over time, those two sports soon rivaled baseball as popular betting activities. For a number of years, football and basketball bets were placed using odds, a practice that still takes place today and is known as betting with the money line.
For a detailed explanation of the money line and how it works, see Understanding Money Lines.

THE ADVENT OF THE POINT SPREAD        CLICK HERE – BET ON THE SPREAD

The only problem with the money line is that a number of the college football and basketball games were mismatches and all of the gamblers would be betting on the same team, which is not what the bookmakers want.
In the 1940s, the bookmakers changed the face of sports gambling forever when they came out with the point spread. For a detailed explanation of the point spread and how it works, see Understanding Point Spreads.
Simply stated, the point spread is a handicap placed on the expected winner of a football or basketball game in points. If the Lakers are expected to roll past the Clippers, the point spread on the game could be as high as 20 points. Basically, that means 20 points are subtracted from the Lakers score or added to the Clippers score for betting purposes. If a gambler places a bet on the Lakers, they must win by 21 or more points for the gambler to win their bet. Those placing bets on the Clippers will win if the Clippers win the game or lose by 19 points of less.
The primary purpose of the point spread was to help the bookmakers balance their books. Instead of the vast majority of gamblers all betting on the same team, there were more bets placed on both teams. Because the bookmakers make the bettor risk $11 to win $10, balanced action will guarantee the bookmaker a profit regardless of which team wins the game.
The television explosion of the 1950s was another boost for bookies, as sports and television was a perfect match.
People soon found out that a wager on a game would add to the excitement of watching the game and sports gambling has been growing at a steady rate every year.

THE START OF TOTALS    (START BETTING NOW)

Bookmakers aren’t dumb and they quickly realized the more betting opportunities they had for the public, the more wagers the public would make. That thinking led to the creation of totals. Totals, or over/unders, is a betting proposition where gamblers wager on the combined final score, without any regard to the winner of the game.
For a detailed explanation of the totals and how they work, see Understanding Totals.
Betting against the point spread, with the money line, or on totals are the three most popular forms or sports betting that take place today. In recent years, bookmakers have continued to come out with additional betting opportunities, such as parlays and teasers.
These two bets are explained in greater detail in How to Bet Parlays and How to Bet Teasers and an excellent in-depth look at betting NFL teasers can be found in the NFL Teaser Betting Guide located on the Top Betting Reviews website.
You’re now well on your way to joining the exciting world of sports betting. For the next step, how to begin placing bets, read Getting Started in Sports Betting .
Many sports bettors believe betting on overs/unders is easier than trying to predict the winner of a game and bookmakers tend to agree with that fact by placing smaller betting limits on overs/unders than they do when betting a team, either against the point spread or on the money line.
Overs/unders, more commonly referred to as totals, are a type of betting opportunity offered to gamblers where they may bet that the final score of a game is over the bookmaker’s posted total or it goes under the number.
The winner of a totals bet is determined by adding the final score of both teams. It’s that simple.
Imagine the New York Jets are playing the Miami Dolphins and the posted total is 40. If you bet over on the game, you win your bet if the two teams combine for more than 40 points. If the Dolphins win 24-17, for example, you have made a winning bet. If the Dolphins were to win 24-14, you would lose the over bet, as the final combined score was just 38. If the final score added up to 40, the bet would be considered a push, or a tie, and your money is returned to you.
Many longtime sports bettors will say that baseball is the easiest of the major sports in which to show a profit, yet it’s one of the least wagered on sports around.
In the book “Sports Betting: A Winner’s Handbook” Jerry Patterson states, “More big scores have been made betting on baseball than any other proposition.”
The most common assumption on why sports gamblers don’t wager on baseball is that they don’t know how.
There is no point spread and the odds used for baseball wagering look foreign to them. But it’s actually quite easy.
The first thing prospective baseball bettors need to do is understand how the money line works.
Smart bettors and professional gamblers will seldom give odds greater than -140 when betting on baseball and always look for a reason to bet the underdog. If you bet nothing but underdogs you can win less than half of your bets and still come out ahead in the long run.

THE RUN LINE    (BET THE RUN LINE NOW)

The run line is essentially a combination of the point spread and the money line rolled into one. Don’t worry, once you see it in action, it’s not nearly as confusing as it first sounds.
The run line uses a constant spread of 1.5 runs, although on very rare occasions you may see it jump to 2.5 runs. The team that is favored on the money line will also be the favored team on the run line.
Let’s use an example of the Royals playing at the Red Sox.
On the regular money line we may see odds like:
Kansas City Royals +165
Boston Red Sox -180
This means that Red Sox bettors are asked to risk $180 to win $100, while Royals bettors will risk $100 to win $165. But when betting with the run line, we would expect to see the same game looking closer to:
Kansas City Royals +1.5 -125
Boston Red Sox -1.5 +105
Now, those people betting on the Royals are risking more money than they will win, in this case $125 to win $100, but they are receiving 1.5 runs. Even if the Royals lose by one run, those betting Kansas City on the run line will win their bet because of the 1.5 runs.
Looking at another game, this time where the road team is favored, we’ll choose the Padres at the Giants. For our purposes, let’s say the odds on the game were:
San Diego Padres -115
San Francisco Giants +105
On the money line, Padres bettors will risk $115 to win $100, while Giants bettors will risk $100 to win $105. Using the run line, however, we would see odds resembling:
San Diego Padres -1.5 +135
San Francisco Giants +1.5 -155
The reason the odds didn’t change as much for the Padres (-115 to +135) as they did for the Red Sox (-180 to +105) is because the Red Sox are the home team and will not bat in the bottom of the ninth inning if they lead by one run or they will stop batting in the ninth inning if they go ahead by a run, even if the bases are loaded and there are no outs, unless they score by home run.
The Padres, as the road team, will continue to bat all the way through the ninth inning even if they’re already ahead, or if the Padres take a one run lead in the top of the ninth, they’ll continue to swing away and try to add to their lead.
Betting the run like makes sense when you like a big favorite and can get them at reduced odds by giving the 1.5 runs.
It’s also wise to consider the predicted amount of runs scored in a game when looking at the run line. Obviously, 1.5 runs is more meaningful in a contest where the oddsmaker is predicting a total of 7 runs to be scored than it is in a game where the predicted total is 14 runs.
How is the predicted number of runs figured? Simply by looking at the oddsmaker’s over/under number on the game. If you don’t know anything about over/unders, you’re in luck, as that’s our next topic.

BASEBALL OVERS & UNDER’S         (START WAGERING NOW – CLICK HERE)

If you’re completely new to overs/unders, more commonly referred to as totals, a good place to get started is here.
Baseball totals are just like the totals for any other sport, in that you’re betting the total number of points (runs in this case) is either over or under the bookmaker’s predicted total.
The one difference is that in many cases you will have to risk more than the standard -110 used in football and basketball totals when you place a baseball totals bet. On the positive side, there will be cases where you receive favorable odds, such as +120 when you place a toals bet in baseball.
Using our earlier game between the Padres and the Giants for total purposes, it’s quite possible we would see a totals proposition of:
San Diego Padres OV 8.5 -130
San Francisco Giants UN 8.5 +110[
What this means is that bettors wishing to wager more than 8.5 runs will be scored will have to risk $130 to win $100, while those wagering on the under will risk $100 to win $110.
For wagering purposes what happens in extra innings counts, both for totals and run line bets.
As a general rule, strikeout pitchers typically perform better in night games and may be solid under plays, while off-speed pitchers who don’t register too many strikeouts are usually good over plays when they are pitching in the daytime.
There you have the basics to betting on the National Pastime. Bet wisely and remember that it’s a long season and you might be the next gambler to be singing the praises of baseball wagering.

Football (NFL) AND BASKETBALL TOTALS   (CLICK HERE TO BET ON SPORTS)

When betting on football and basketball totals, the bettor risks $11 to win $10, just as they do when making a bet against the point spread. If the bookmaker can get an equal amount of money wagered on the over and the under, he is guaranteed to make money no matter what the final score is.
Most NFL football totals will range between 32 and 52, with an average number right around 41 points.
If two high scoring teams with poor defenses are playing each other, the total may be posted higher.On rare occasions, two sound defensive teams playing in poor, cold weather, may see the total dip below 32, but this doesn’t happen too often.
College football totals may be even higher, as some teams have great offenses and equally poor defenses.
College football totals have been known to reach into the 70-point range.
When a bookmaker accepts a maximum bet on a football total, they will typically adjust the line by .5 points in an effort to attract money bet the other way, although this is at the discretion of the individual bookmaker. They may move the line a full point or they may not move it at all.
Basketball totals work in exactly the same manner as football totals, where the bettor risks $11 to win $10. Naturally, the over/under numbers are much higher, as many more points will be scored in a basketball game, as opposed to a football game, and totals can range from 120, for a low scoring NCAA team, well into the 200s for an NBA game.
When bookmakers accept a maximum wager on a basketball total they will typically respond by adjusting the line 1.5 points in an effort to attract people to be the other way. Example: If the posted total on the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets is 190 and a bettor places a $500 wager on the over, which happens to be the maximum bet allowed at a particular sportsbook. The sportsbook would then raise the total to 191.5 in an attempt to get people to wager money on the under.
How to bet on baseball and hockey for beginners.

BASEBALL AND HOCKEY TOTALS

Baseball and hockey totals wagers use the same principal as football and basketball overs/unders, where the bookmaker posts a number and you can bet either over that total or under the total, but there is one essential difference and that rests in the amount of money a bettor must risk​ in order to win $100.
Because scoring in baseball and hockey is so much lower than in football or basketball, the bookmakers are reluctant to change the number of a total and instead will adjust the odds. Example: If the over/under number on the Dodgers and the Giants is 9 and a bettor places a $500 wager on the over, the bookmaker is unlikely to raise the total to 9.5. Instead, he will make bettors who wish to wager over 9 risk $120 to win $100, which is written as -120. Those wishing to bet the under would then be able to wager at even money or +100, as totals nearly always use a difference of .2, commonly called “20 cents.”
If people continue to bet the over, the bookmaker will continue to adjust the odds upward and eventually bettors may have to risk $145 to win $100, or -145. In this case, an under bettor would risk $100 to win $125.
The bookmaker will generally raise the odds up to -145 before raising the total to the next number, which in this case would be 9.5.
Betting overs/unders is another way to add some excitement to a game and many times will offer more betting value than trying to pick the winner. Many serious bettors concentrate on totals, believing they are easier to win than picking which team is going to cover the spread. Now that you understand overs/unders, you’re closer to experiencing the “total” sports betting adventure.
The National Hockey League may rank a distant fourth in the four major sports in the United States, but that hasn’t stopped sportsbooks from posting lines on the NHL. Bettors who are willing to put some effort into handicapping the National Hockey League are often rewarded by the public’s nonchalance to the sport, as oddsmakers don’t spend the same amount of time creating NHL odds as they do a more popular sport, such as football or basketball.

Hockey bettors will find lower betting limits on NHL games than they will in the NFL or NBA, something which is generally seen as an acknowledgment by the sportsbooks that they are less comfortable accepting bets on the NHL than they are in the other two sports.
How to bet on NHL
BETTING THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
Before a person can start to bet the NHL, it’s important they have a solid understanding of the money line. If the money line is a new concept for you, read Understanding Money Lines.

What is a money line bet ?   (BET THE MONEY LINE NOW) 

The money line is the most common method of betting the NHL, although there is also a puck line, which we will discuss a bit later, as well as totals. A number of sportsbooks also offer the “Grand Salami,” which is the combined total of all the games that are played on a particular day, and we’ll discuss later on, as well.
Nearly every sportsbook uses a 20-cent line on the National Hockey League. The 20-cents refers to the difference in the odds on the favorite and the odds on the underdog. But as with other sports, such as baseball, the odds on an extremely large favorite will often be greater than the 20 cents.
The odds on a typical National Hockey League game may look like:
Calgary +110
Vancouver -130
What that means is that Vancouver bettors are asked to risk $130 to win $100, while Calgary bettors risk $100 to win $110.
But the odds on a game with a larger favorite are more inclined to look like:
Toronto +250
Detroit -300
The larger difference in odds is typical in all sports, not just hockey, so it isn’t as if hockey bettors are being singled out.

THE PUCK LINE  (BET THE PUKE LINE – BET NHL HOCKEY)

While betting on the winner of the game, as shown above, is the most popular method of betting the NHL, there is also the puck line, which baseball bettors will recognize as being quite similar to the run line. When betting the puck line, bettors can either lay 1.5 goals with the favorite or take 1.5 goals with the underdog.
Using the two games above, the puck lines odds will be something like:
Calgary +1.5 (-240)
Vancouver -1.5 (+200)
Toronto +1.5 (-110)
Detroit -1.5 (-110)
Now, Calgary bettors will win their wagers if Calgary wins the game or losses by one goal, while Vancouver bettors can only win their wagers if the Canucks win by two goals or more. But Calgary bettors are now asked to risk $240 to $100 and Vancouver bettors are risking $100 to win $200.
Likewise, Toronto bettors will win their bets if the Maple Leafs win or lose by one goal and Detroit bettors will only win their bet if the Red Wings win by two or more goals.
Totals: Bettors also have the option of betting on the total number of goals scored in a game. The sportsbooks will post a number, generally between 5 and 6.5 and bettors can wager the number of goals scored in the game will be greater (over) than the posted number or less (under) than the posted number.
There is one primary difference in betting hockey totals as opposed to betting basketball and football totals. Because scoring in hockey is so much lower than in football or basketball, the bookmakers are reluctant to change the number of a total and instead will often adjust the odds.
Example: If the over/under number on the Red Wings and Penguins is 6 and a bettor places a $500 wager on the over, the bookmaker is unlikely to raise the total to 6.5. Instead, he will make bettors who wish to wager over 6 risk $120 to win $100, which is written as -120.
Those wishing to bet the under would then be able to wager at even money or +100, as totals nearly always use a 20-cent line.
If people continue to bet the over, the bookmaker will continue to adjust the odds upward and eventually bettors may have to risk $145 to win $100, or -145. In this case, an under bettor would risk $100 to win $125. The bookmaker will generally raise the odds up to -145 before raising the total to the next number, which in this case would be 6.5.
So totals can take on several different forms, but will nearly always look like one of the two following examples:
Detroit vs. Toronto over 5.5 (-110)
Detroit vs. Toronto under 5.5 (-110)
Detroit vs. Toronto over 5.5 (-135)
Detroit vs. Toronto under 5.5 (+115)
In the first example, bettors are asked to wager $110 to win $100 regardless if they bet the over or the under. This is sometimes referred to as “5.5-flat,” meaning it is -110 on both the over and the under.
In the second example, bettors who wish to wager on the over will have to risk $135 to win $100, while under bettors will risk $100 to win $115. This is commonly referred to as “5.5-Over.
Grand Salami: The Grand Salami is practically an institution for hockey bettors. The Grand Salami allows hockey fans to have a rooting interest in every game being played on a particular day for the cost of one bet.
How the Grand Salami works is the sportsbooks will let bettors wager over or under the total number of goals scored in all of the games played on a particular day. If there are 10 games on a given day, the Grand Salami total will generally be around 53 to 60, depending on the particular games. Just as with regular totals, there will be times when bettors are risked to give higher odds on betting the over or the under.
Now you’re ready to place a wager on the coolest game on ice.

How to bet on baseball ?   BET ON BASEBALL NOW

Many longtime sports bettors will say that baseball is the easiest of the major sports in which to show a profit, yet it’s one of the least wagered on sports around.

The run line uses a constant spread of 1.5 runs, although on very rare occasions you may see it jump to 2.5 runs. The team that is favored on the money line will also be the favored team on the run line.

There you have the basics to betting on the National Pastime. Bet wisely and remember that it’s a long season and you might be the next gambler to be singing the praises of baseball wagering.
Of the four major sports, basketball is one of the easiest to bet on. Along with football, basketball uses the point spread for wagering on sides (teams), as well as an over/under number. If you know how to bet on football, you already pretty much know how to bet on basketball.

How to bet on Basketball , NBA and NCAA Games

The most common method of betting basketball involves the point spread, which is a handicap the sportsbooks impose on one team to make both teams equal in terms of betting.
For a more detailed explanation of the point spread see Introduction to Point Spreads. With the point spread, the team expected to win will be called the favorite, while the team expected to lose will be called the underdog. The team expected to win gives, or lays, points to the team expected to lose for betting purposes.
If the Lakers are playing the Mavericks , most bettors would bet on the Lakers to win the game. But say the point spread will make the Mavericks a 10-point favorite. What this means is that the Lakers have to win by 11 or more points for its bettors to win their bet, while those betting on the Lakers would win their wagers if the Mavericks won the game or lost by nine points or less. If the Lakers win by exactly 10 points, the bet is a push, or a tie, and no money changes hands.
When betting against the point spread, bettors are asked to lay 11-to-10 odds, which means that they risk $11 to win $10.
This is how the bookies and sportsbooks make their money. If I bet $11 on the Celtics and you bet $11 on the Knicks, the bookie collects $22 between us, but only returns $21 to the winner. The extra dollar is essentially the bookie’s fee for accepting our wagers.
What are TOTALS?
The second most popular method of wagering on basketball is in betting totals, also known as over/unders.
For a more detailed explanation of totals see Introduction to Totals.
Essentially, a total is the predicted combined score of the two teams playing. A number will be posted and bettors have the option of wagering more than the predicted total points will be scored (over), or less than the predicted total points will be scored (under).
In our hypothetical game between the Lakers and the Mavericks , the over/under number might be 188. Bettors wagering on the over would win their bets if the total combined score was 189 or greater, while bettors wagering on the under would win their bets if the combined total score was 187 or fewer points. Again, if the combined score is exactly 188 points, the bet is considered a push, or a tie, and no money changes hands.
Just as with the point spread, bettors are asked to lay 11-to-10 odds and risk $11 to win $10 on each over/under wager.

MONEY LINE WAGERS

While betting against the point spread or on totals make up the vast majority of basketball wagers, bettors also have several other betting options available to them. One is the money line wager, which is a bet on the winner of the game without the point spread. But because some teams are given a better than 50-percent chance of winning, money line wagers are made using odds, so that if you bet on the team expected to win you will be asked to risk considerably more than you stand to win.
More about money line betting can be found at Introduction to Money Lines.
The money line odds on a game will look something like:
Boston Celtics -300
New York Knicks +240
What this means is that bettors taking the Celtics are asked to put up $30 to win $10, while those believing the Knicks will win are asked to risk $10 to win $24.
All sports betting was done with money lines at one point, but with too many people betting on the obvious favorites all of the time, the point spread was introduced and sports betting hasn’t been the same since.

PARLAYS AND TEASERS

The other types of wagers involving basketball come in the form of parlays and teasers, which are sometimes called exotic bets. In parlays and teasers, bettors must correctly predict the winners of two or more games. On parlays, bettors have the option of betting against the point spread or using the money line, while teasers are made using the point spread and players can adjust the point spread in their favor.
The one catch about parlays and teasers is that all of your teams must win or the entire bet is a loss. Even if you correctly pick five out of six games, a parlay or teaser wager is still a loss.

How to Bet Parlays Teasers?

Betting basketball isn’t difficult and it typically ranks second in terms of betting dollars behind football. Many fans find that dealing with the point spread, or with totals, easier than using the money line.

What is the spread in betting?

So in this example, if you bet on the Colts, they need to win by at least four points to cover the spread. However, if you bet the Giants, they can lose by three, two or one point, or win the game outright, and you win your bet. Your payout is determined by the moneyline odds attached to the point spread.

How does a sports line work?

The payout, unless stated otherwise, is figured at odds of 10/11. This means that a wager of $11 would win $10 and return $21. The Point Spread: When betting on basketball, the team you bet on must “cover the spread.” This means the team must win or not lose by a predetermined margin of points.
