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 throughout the season. For the newbie sports bettor, it may seem a bit confusing, but football bets really drop to two types-straight bets and parlay bets.
Football Betting – Straight Bets
Here’s the workhorse for just about any winning football bettor. A straight bet simply means you’re betting using one football game. In the event that you bet on several game on a single ticket, it’s a parlay, and we’ll talk about that in a minute.
Once you make a direct football bet, you could be betting on an area or total. In other words, whenever you bet an area, you “select a side” in the game. For instance, let’s say the New England Patriots are playing the Seattle Seahawks. If you’re going to bet an area, you’d bet on either the Patriots or the Seahawks.
Every game has a point total (except NCAA football, that is most games). This is the quantity of points scored between both teams. Once you ราคาไหล bet an overall total, you’re betting under or over that total. For instance, 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 will be a push, therefore you get your bet back).
Football Betting – Parlays
Okay, so you know about straight bets, that is where you bet on just a very important factor per ticket. When you want to bet on several thing, it’s a parlay. You can bet on 2 – 20 things (depends on the sportsbook).
For instance, let’s say you bet on the Seahawks and over the full total on your ticket. That will be a 2-team parlay (even though technically there’s only 1 team on it).
The more items you add on the ticket, the additional money you’ll win if they all 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 so you can get close, but that’s very rare.
If you get into making football bets via parlay tickets, you could have a look at “teasers,” which are parlay tickets with added points for you. For instance, as opposed to taking the Packers -10, you could buy them at -3. Obviously, the payouts really are a less since the risk is minimized.
Football betting is a blast and there’s nothing better than hitting the sportsbook with a large winning ticket. I hit straight football bets and parlays all season long. I enjoy the NFL and NCAA football seasons.
