    -1 and ML

    -1 and ML is basically the same right? Only thing is the bet will be called off is the score is example 3-2 4-3 2-1.

    In soccer, Tennis, and baseball it seems to be the -1 or +1 is VERY important. Not so much in football or basketball.

    Not sure why,..but whenever I see the -1 in football I always take the underdog.

    No its not the same. -1 compared to pk (ml) in hockey is worth about 100 cents on a line. Enormous difference.

    I know that. But what im wondering is if I pick a team, ex, I am wanting to pick Vancouver Canucks tonight at -1@ 2.3 odds compared to ML at 1.69, will I loose the bet is the final score is 3-2(Vancouver wins) or will my bet be pushed and returned back to me or is it a LOOSE.

    Canucks -1 is a Push if vancouver wins 3-2.

    vancouver in 60 minutes(reg) is another option where they must win in 60 minutes and if game goes to overtime you lose.

    5dimes does offer regulation bets.

    canucks in regulation are -1/2 +110. American odds.

    In NBA, the 1 is worth very little (about 5 cents), yet some books offer it at 10 cents difference with ML. So, a -1 -110/-110 vs a ML -120/+100, if you want the dog, you should take ML, if you want the fave, you take the spread.
