Online Sports Betting
Online Sports Betting & Odds
Betting on sports has never been easier. You can bet on your favourite teams without leaving the safety of your home. Of course, we are talking about online sports betting. Besides that, online betting is better than regular betting in many ways. It comes with better sports betting lines with tons of sports to bet on. It also comes with higher betting odds on every single match. Online sports bettors also get special promotions from time to time and even some free bets. It is, therefore, no wonder that professional bettors prefer the online way of betting.
Types of Sports Bets
If you chose online betting, you will most definitely stumble across much more betting options than you ever saw before. It is impossible to know what each of them stands for. However, we will cover the most common ones.
Moneyline betting is the simplest way to place your bet. You just have to pick a team or player that you think will win the match. If your team or player wins, your bet is won. There are many names for this betting method so don’t get confused. It can also be called 2-way betting or 1×2 betting. For example, it can be called 2-way betting in sports like tennis because there are only 2 possible outcomes without the possibility of a draw. In sports like football or basketball, it is usually called betting 1×2 where X stands for a draw.
Point Spread (Handicap) Betting
This type of betting is popular for matches with heavy favourites. If a favourite team is playing against a total underdog, the odds on that team will probably be very low. However, if you chose the handicap betting method, you can increase the odds and your winnings. For example, if Barcelona is playing against Celta Vigo, the odds on Barcelona to win are 1,20. If you place a handicap bet -1,5 on Barcelona to win, the odds will be at least 2,00. It basically means that Barcelona has to win that game by 2 or more goals. If a handicap is -0,5 they have to win by at least 1 goal so the minimum final result has to be 2-0.
Betting on a total number of corners, goals, points, sets and so on.
Prop Bets (Proposition Bets)
Another interesting way of betting is proposition betting. It has nothing to do with the final outcome. You simply bet on the occurrence or non-occurrence of something during the game. For example, you can bet on a player to be carded, which team will score the first goal, who will score the first ace and so on.
Sports Betting Tips and Tricks
Betting on sports can be dangerous. If you don’t know how to do it properly, you can actually lose more than you can afford to lose. Online sports betting sites usually have multiple deposit methods and it is very easy to deposit. However, when you see just numbers, you don’t feel it like real money and it is easier to give it away. That’s why you should have a monthly bankroll and limit your deposits. Try to deposit only once per month. Chose the amount you can spend on gambling and don’t deposit more. If you win, you can easily withdraw it, but if you lose, don’t deposit more. Instead, wait for the next month.
Sports Leagues Bet
Sports betting online refers to betting on sports leagues. You can bet on pretty much every league. From NBA basketball, NHL hockey, MLB baseball, every major football league to NCAA college football. The most popular to bet on is, without any doubt, football. If you want to bet on football, try to pick only one league, for example, Premier League. It is easier to predict the outcomes if you follow teams from one league and know what is happening in that league. You can’t be an expert in every single league.
