Beginner’s Guide to Betting on Basketball

This is one of basic topics of betting on basketball. Today we’ll go through the very interesting topic of parlays and teasers. Often called exotic bets, these 2 types of wagers come down to gamblers predicting correctly the outcome of at least two games.

Parlays are the more popular of the two. They offer a great pay out while requiring a small wager. Here you bet on 2 or more totals for example, and you must be right for all of them. If you place a 5-team parlay, ending with 4 – 1 is the same as 0 – 5. All of your bets must be winning or at least end with a tie, for you to profit.

With parlays you can bet using money line wagers, totals or against point spreads. The money you can get in the end depends on the type of bets you placed. With totals and point spreads the amount of money you can win is fixed, whereas with money line wagers it depends on the odds each team has been assigned.

Teasers are similar to parlay in that you bet on 2 or more games, and you must have chosen the correct outcome for all of them to win your bet – even only one mistake will cost you your wager. The big difference between the two exotic bets comes in the fact that with teasers you can adjust the point spread any way you like. If the Boston Celtics are favoured by 8 points by the New Orleans Pelicans, you can move the point spread for example as such:
Boston Celtics – 6
New Orleans Pelicans +20

You see that the spread has been moved by 4 points – it can be moved by either that, 4.5 or 5 points.
Ties in teasers most often count as a loss for the bettor, so keep that in mind when placing such a bet.

Hopefully, all the information we gathered for you will be helpful and you’ll be better when betting on basketball. Good luck!

A Short Guide to Betting on Golf

Yes, betting on golf is actually a thing that exists, and you may be surprised at how many people choose this sport exactly to put their money on.

When betting on golf tournaments there’s 3 main wagers available to you:

Betting on the winner

This is analogical to money line bets. At the sportsbook you’ll find a list that may look similarly to this:
Tiger Woods +120
Jordan Spieth +170
Rickie Fowler +220
Rory McIlroy +250
Sergio Garcia +300
Dustin Johnson +450
Henrik Stenson +550
So, for example if you bet 30 bucks on Rory McIlroy and he wins, your return will amount to 750$

Betting on whether a golfer will rank in the top 3

Many sportsbook prepare an entry that is commonly referred to as Field to add to the odds spread. It includes all players taking part in the tournament, having minor chances of winning. Referring to the example above, see how this looks:
Tiger Woods +120
Jordan Spieth +170
Rickie Fowler +220
Rory McIlroy +250
Sergio Garcia +300
Dustin Johnson +450
Henrik Stenson +550
Field -100

Being compound, the field odds are lower, as if they happen to be successful, the bookie must pay off a few separate winning bets, instead of one.

Betting on a golfer ranking higher than another golfer

With this one you’re not concerned with who wins, you just care if someone finishes with better results than someone else. You’ll find odds like these for example:
Rickie Fowler -180
Henrik Stenson +130
If you think Fowler will outperform Stenson, you’ll have to bet 18$ for a chance to win 10$. On the other hand those who believe in Stenson can win 13$ for every 10 dollars they stake.

Additional bets

The tournaments allow a few other types of bets to spice up the game. Some of those include:

• A player’s point score
• Whether the first-round leader will actually win
• Whether there’ll be holes-in-one

Betting on golf is fairly simple, not to mention enjoyable. Experienced bettors often transition to golf betting as its basics are analogical to those of many other sports.
