BETTING ADVICE GUIDE FROM TRENDBETTING – WAYS TO MAKE MONEY BETTING IN SPORTSBOOKS ON STRAIGHT BETS
SPORTS BETTING 101 – STRAIGHT WAGERS
Ever wondered – How do you place a bet on sports by making straight wagers in an online sportsbook?
The team wagered on must win by the point spread given at the time of the wager. For straight wagers, unless otherwise indicated, the odds are $1.10 to win $1.00. Games that tie are considered “no action” and money is re-deposited back into your account. Due to changing events, the point spread may fluctuate at any time.
Player wagers $110.00 on Miami -7 to beat Buffalo +7
If Miami wins by more than 7 points the player wins $100.00 so the total payout including the initial wager would be $210.00. If Miami only wins by 7 points then the game is considered “no action” and all money is returned to the bettor. If the Miami wins by less than 7 points the wagers is lost.
