    Making 2 bets on the same game.

    Reading through all of these forums I've noticed some people betting on more then 1 thing on a single game. Some would take the ML as well as bet on the over/under. I'm just wondering why people do this. I am also brand new to this forum so I don't have much idea about the whole bidding units thing and the systems that are being posted. Just trying to learn and any help would be highly appreciated. thanks guys

    Oh I know they are accepted. I am just wondering why people make multiple bets in a single game, and if I should start doing the same since I haven't been winning much as of late.

    don't recomment combining over/unders with money line play in mlb. too often you get in the situation where you can't win. needing or not needing runs for total which will doom you on money line flat play.

    The first thing and always keep in mind that it is said 98% of all sports bettor lose in the long run and even less than 2% actually do this professionally. There are a few good cappers that post, but all will have their ups and downs.

    As for ML and betting the over/under on the same game, that is more of personal choice and why you are doing this; is sports betting for fun or are you trying to do this professionally. Most people will tell you, you need to find value in the bet. "Think Tank" peeps go with mathematical models and quantify stats to make an algorithm to support their theory. However, they too will fall short many times, as it just is not that easy. Player talk people will usually go with their gut or some generic stat and of course some times it works for a while and some times it doesn't.

    If it is just for fun and you looking for some action, I would suggest going with over/under's, they are way more fun, especially in the NBA when you are rooting for either team to score. Nothing like sitting at a bar and screaming for both sides to score

    As for professionally, that is a long road and will require a few years of experience and there are no guarantees you will ever be successful.

    Since I posted in this thread it will show up in my personal posts, so you can ask questions and I should get to them throughout the day.

    BoL (Best of Luck),

    Well, usually european books don't accept ML & over/under for same game but offshore books like BJ, Greek accept these kind of wagers.

    Thanks a lot Duke. Couldn't agree with you more on the watching a game at the bar rooting for everyone to score.

    Whats really awesome is when one line is say Over 110 and another book is say Under 111.5 you could bet both ways and if it hits on 111 you win both bets I think its called arbitrage, or even if it lands on 110 its a push and you still win.

    On Matchbook you can buy both sides of the line during live trading and as long as they both are less than 100 as a percentage you are guaranteed a profit.

    There are a good amount of times I'll play both the side and total within the same game, both straights not pars. I can't speak for others but the reason I do this is because if I find say for instance a solid home favorite that plays solid defense, I am expecting the visiting club to struggle offensively and feel the home team will cover the spread, hence I like the home team minus the points and the under. Plus I only like to exert my energy capping games that catch my eye and since I put the time and effort into capping the game, if I like both the side and the total, I will play both.

    Forget the fact that the plays are on the same game. If the plays have a positive expectation on their own merit, you make them.

    Just about every book in the world accepts money line/total parlays in baseball and ATS/total parlays in foots/hoops. Only exceptions are what books deem to be correlated parlays in football, which happens when Total/Spread ratio is low.
