Whether you’re a sports betting newbie or a seasoned pro, official betting offers a wide variety of wagering options. Regardless of the game you’re interested in, our sportsbooks will help you find the best odds on your favorite teams and players.
The most common bets for sports are moneyline, spread and parlays. Each type of bet has its own rules and requirements, but they all involve putting your money behind an outcome and getting paid if the outcome is achieved.
A moneyline bet on the favorite has the highest price, while an underdog bet has a lower one. You can also make a combination bet, such as a parlay or double-up.
For example, a daily double entails picking two winners of consecutive races. A trifecta or a superfecta involves three or four winners in exact order.
There are many other types of bets, such as correlated plays and ad-hoc wagers. You can also place bets on the total runs scored in a game (over/under).
If you’re an avid Red Sox fan, then the upcoming legalization of sports betting in Massachusetts will give you the chance to put your money behind your favorite team. But before you start placing bets, it’s important to know the basics of MLB wagering.
