How to Bet on Boxing

The most common type of bet in boxing wagering is the moneyline. This is where you simply bet on who will win the fight. Pick the correct winner and your bet cashes no matter how they win, whether it is by judge’s decision or a knockout in the ring. The second type of boxing bet would be on the total number of rounds in a fight. You are trying to predict when the fight will finish. There are also a multitude of prop bets in boxing. Some include props based off of stats. For example, betting over or under on the total amount of punches a fighter lands in the fight.

How to Bet on NFL Football

There are three standard bets you can make in any NFL game. The first standard NFL bet is the spread on a game. One of the teams will be favored usually in between a range of zero, or pick em, to a touchdown. The second standard NFL bet is the total. This is when the book sets a number to try and predict the combined final score and the bettor either bets under or over that number. The third and final standard NFL bet is the moneyline. This is the most simple. If you just want to bet on which team will win, regardless of the score or spread, go with the moneyline.

How to Bet on Esports

ESports, or organized video game competitions, are the new thing on the market and now the betting world is catching up and posting odds and action on multiple events and games. The most common way to bet on eSports is the moneyline or match-up winner. This is a common way to bet no matter the game. The most important thing to know when betting on eSports is the game you are betting on. A book will post odds between two different eSports teams going head-to-head and you are betting on who you think will win the gaming matchup. Make sure you understand the intricacies and rules of the game they are playing instead of getting wrapped up and just following the most popular team or gamer.

How to Bet NHL Hockey

There are three standard bets in NHL games. The first type and most common in hockey betting is the moneyline. This is where you bet on which team will win regardless of the score. The second standard NHL bet is the total. This is when the book sets a number to try and predict the combined final score and the bettor either bets under or over that number. The third NHL bet type is the puck line, which works much like spread betting in other sports. However, the puck line is always 1.5 goals. This means the favorite must win by at least 2 goals and the underdog has to lose by less than 2 goals for the side to cash. You can also parlay multiple bet types together on a single ticket which increases your potential winnings, but all parts or “legs” of the parlay must occur for the parlay to cash.

How to Bet on NASCAR

The main way to bet on NASCAR is in the futures market. Before every race books will post odds for almost the entire field, depending on the event. Favorites usually come in a range between plus 200 to plus 800. But the most fun of betting NASCAR futures can be longshots. Drivers often win races with pre-tournament odds of 20 to 1 and higher. Meaning you win 20 dollars for every dollar you bet on a player if his odds are 20 to 1. So you can bet smaller amounts on multiple longshots and if one comes through you are still looking at a large profit. Another interesting way to bet NASCAR is in matchups or groups. Matchups are where the book posts multiple head-to-head matchups between two different drivers. In this bet, you pick a driver and he simply must finish higher than the driver he is matched up against. Books may also put up props especially during the major races. These can include the total number of cautions, the stage one winner or laps led by a specific driver.

This means the favorite must win by at least 2 runs and the underdog has to lose by less than 2 runs for the side to cash.

Lesson 19 – What is The Martingale Betting System?

The Martingale System is when a bettor keeps betting on the same team and outcome until it becomes a winner. For instance, you bet on the same NFL team every week on the spread until they cover. The advantage of this strategy is that eventually you will be a winner and make a profit - unless of course a team never covers a spread. However, the main disadvantage of this strategy is the large bankroll it requires if the team you pick goes on a long losing streak.
