The Basics of Official Betting

Official betting has become a legal, real-time option for bettors all over the world. While it may seem a bit daunting at first, it doesn’t take long to get the hang of betting on football games and other sports.

Bet on the Over/Under

The over/under is a betting line that shows how much you should bet on each team. It’s a great way to try and predict a game’s outcome before it’s too late. It’s also a great way to bet on a game that you think will end up in a draw or a tie.

Money lines

Money lines change constantly throughout the day and season as games are played. The odds on the money line are usually displayed in American and decimal formats, which give you a better idea of how likely a win is for a particular team.

Prop bets

During the NFL regular season, you’ll see many prop bets on specific game outcomes and players. These bets often focus on the performance of certain star players, the time that scoring occurs in a game and many other factors that can impact the outcome of a particular game.

Horse Racing

There are many different types of horse race betting, but the most popular are exactas, quinellas and trifectas. A quinella requires you to pick the first two finishers in a race, while a trifecta requires you to choose the first three winners. A superfecta is a bet that requires you to pick the first four finishers in a race, a feat that can pay out enormous sums of money.
