GETTING STARTED
Sports betting is the activity of predicting sports results and placing a wager on the outcome. Sports betting can easily be defined as one of the most widely-spread forms of gambling. In general terms, sports betting is placing a wager, commonly referred to as a bet, on the outcome of a particular sports event.
Point Spread
What is a point spread in betting?
When you bet against the spread, you’re not betting on which team will win the game, you’re betting on the margin of victory or defeat. So the question isn’t Who will win? but rather How much will they win by?

Moneyline
What is a moneyline bet?
A moneyline is a straight up bet on the outcome of a game. The favorite is always indicated by a minus sign (-), and the underdog is indicated by a plus sign (+). In the case of the favorite, the moneyline is the amount a bettor would have to wager to win $100. For the underdog, the moneyline is the amount a bettor stands to win if they were to wager $100.
Points Total (Over/Under)
What is a point spread in betting?
A total, or over/under, is a bet on the total amount of points scored in a game by both teams combined.
