If the sportsbook is busy with action, it must certanly be football season. Whether it’s the NFL or NCAA, football betting action is fast and furious through the season. For the newbie sports bettor, it may seem a little confusing, but football bets really come down to two types-straight bets and parlay bets.
Football Betting – Straight Bets
Here’s the workhorse for almost any winning football bettor. A straight bet simply means you’re betting on one football game. In the event that you bet on multiple game for a passing fancy ticket, it’s a parlay, and we’ll speak about that in a minute.
Once you make a straight football bet, you can be betting on a side or total. Simply put, once you bet a side, you “select a side” in the game. As an example, let’s say the New England Patriots are playing the Seattle Seahawks. If you’re going to bet a side, you’d bet on either the Patriots or the Seahawks.
Every game has a point total (except NCAA football, which is most games). This is the quantity of points scored between both teams. Once you ราคาไหล bet a complete, you’re betting under or higher that total. As an example, let’s say the full total is 47 and you take the over. To win, both teams must combine for 48 or even more points (47 would be a push, therefore you get your bet back).
Football Betting – Parlays
Okay, so you know about straight bets, which is where you bet on just one thing per ticket. When you want to bet on multiple thing, it’s a parlay. You can bet on 2 – 20 things (depends on the sportsbook).
As an example, let’s say you bet on the Seahawks and over the full total on your own ticket. That would be a 2-team parlay (even though technically there’s only one team on it).
The more items you put on the ticket, the more income you’ll win if each of them hit. Naturally, the more items on the ticket, the harder it’s to win.
With parlay bets it’s an all or nothing thing. If one pick fails, the ticket is dead. Some sportsbooks will run specials for getting close, but that’s very rare.
If you obtain into making football bets via parlay tickets, you could take a look at “teasers,” which are parlay tickets with added points for you. As an example, rather than taking the Packers -10, you could get them at -3. Needless to say, the payouts certainly are a less since the danger is minimized.
Football betting is a crank and there’s nothing better than hitting the sportsbook with a big winning ticket. I hit straight football bets and parlays all season long. I anticipate the NFL and NCAA football seasons.
