Sports Betting Odds


You can use different types of betting odds when choosing a horse race. You can choose an “exacta,” “quinella,” or “superfecta” if you think that your horse will win in a specific order. Other betting odds include a “daily double,” “daily triple,” and “Pick Six,” which requires you to pick a horse to win six races in a row. Each of these betting odds has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Point spread odds refer to the perceived total in a game. In football, for example, you can bet on the total to be 41 or under 40 points. Proposition bets are popular, and include such possibilities as which team scores first, or how many yards a particular player will gain during a game. You can also bet on a favorite to win by less than the predicted amount. Underdog teams are also popular in sports betting, with bets being made on whether they’ll lose by a certain amount, or win the game in a lopsided fashion.

One of the simplest betting options is the moneyline bet. If you bet on the Bulls versus the Pistons, you would win $100. If you were to bet on the Pistons, you would win $135 and lose only $155. However, if you want to bet against the spread, you should choose a team that has a better chance of winning. You should consider the odds of winning a specific game, and make sure to research the odds of that team before betting.
