There are hundreds of sports wagering sites vying for your business and it can be difficult to identify the secure, reliable ones. SBR has done your homework for you and grouped together the best sportsbooks in the business, including FanDuel and DraftKings. Make sure you stick with the trustworthy books and avoid sites with poor reviews. Then familiarize yourself with the types of betting we explain below and take the plunge.
Spread gambling is the most popular form of wagering on football, basketball and many other sports. The sportsbooks will give the supposedly stronger team a handicap in order to even out the playing field. Sticking with the example above, you might expect to see the NFL point spreads set at 13.5, with odds of -110 on the Eagles -13.5, and odds of -110 on the Jets +13.5. Some other betting sites might offer reduced juice, meaning you would find odds of -107 or -105 on either outcome.
If you bet on the Eagles -13.5, Philadelphia would need to win by 14 or more points in order for your football spread bet to pay off. That makes it harder, but you will earn a much greater profit. If you back the Jets, they could either win the game or lose by up to 13 points and your betting spread selection would pay out. The early NFL betting lines are often set by industry leading sportsbooks, while many wait for the Vegas lines to be published and follow suit. These NFL odds can change. If the vast majority of bettors placed their spread betting wagers on the Jets +13.5, you might see the line drop to 11.5 points. You can keep your eye on NFL Picks to check the best bets.
Betting the spread is popular on sports that have high scoring games, like betting on the NBA lines. It is not so common in lower scoring sports, such as soccer and hockey, but Point spreads can prove popular in those sports when one team is a heavy favorite. Many bettors like to wager on point spreads with credit earned when they take advantage of sportsbook welcome bonuses.
Proposition bets relate to a specific event within a game, but these betting odds do not necessarily pertain to the outcome of a game. Some prop bets can be really lucrative, whereas others are just for fun. An exciting prop bet might be on Russell Westbrook managing more than 45.5 points, rebounds and assists against the Timberwolves, or Lionel Messi scoring a free-kick against Real Madrid. A more lighthearted example would be the color Gatorade dumped on the winning coach after the Super Bowl, or the length of time it takes the singer to complete the National Anthem. You can also find plenty of prop wagers when it comes to betting on politics. Examples range from betting on the identity of the vice-presidential candidate to predicting whether the president will open up Area 51 to the public.
