Official betting is a type of sports wager that is sanctioned and regulated by the league in question. It is generally available at a licensed sportsbook and can be placed via desktop, mobile app or brick-and-mortar facility. Official betting typically offers better odds than standard bets and is a great way to make a more reliable wager.
In recent years, the NFL has taken steps to increase its integrity in the betting market. The league has partnered with multiple sportsbooks and integrity monitors to create a network that can track bettors and identify suspicious activity. The NFL also conducts in-house investigations of any alleged rule violations. In the past, several players have been suspended for placing bets on games in violation of the league’s rules.
NBA betting rules
In the United States, the NBA and NFL are two of the most popular professional sports leagues in the country. As a result, these teams and their games attract large betting markets. However, it’s important to know the rules governing NBA betting before placing your bets.
Unless otherwise stated, all bets on goal scorers are settled when the team scores a goal. Attempts to score (including missed goals) and own goals don’t count toward this market. Goal kicks, penalties and extra time don’t count for this market either.
NBA betting rules state that all bets on games and tournaments are settled based on the official results provided by the league or its governing body, including overtime. This includes a game that is rescheduled and will take place more than 72 hours after the original scheduled start time.
