Understanding The Types Of Bets And Identifying The Best Options

## Deciphering Types Of Bets And Uncovering Optimal Choices

If you decide to try your luck and try sports betting but don’t understand anything, this is the right article for you. It will discuss the types of bets you can make and let you decide the best one. And if you are a rookie bettor, remember to have fun, and you will learn everything along the way.

### Win Bets And Moneyline Bets

It is the most straightforward bet; you pick a match winner. There is nothing else to it. For example, there is a game between the Lakers and Warriors with odds of winning 1.55 and 2.30. You pick a team and put some money on them. With this type of bet, research can go far; when you have done your research and done all of the statistical analytics stuff, you are more likely to know who will win this match. But remember that in sports betting, anything can happen, so be aware of that and never bet with the money you can’t afford to lose.

## Totals And Over/Under Bets

This type of bet is also rookie-friendly because it’s easy to understand. Bookmaker gives you an over/under number, and you bet on the outcome. Is it going to be over that number or under it? It can be on a lot of things, for example:

• Goals on the match

• Corners in the match

• Players point

• Players assist

• Players rebound

So, you get the idea, it has many uses, and here is one example of an over/under bet at a bookmakers site:

In tonight’s game, Devin Booker is going to score 30.5 points.

• Under 1.85 Odds

• Over 1.85 Odds

You’ll see that every over/under finishes with .5, and that’s because there can’t be any draw/push situations, only win and lose.

### Point Spread And Handicap Betting

It is a simple bet but involves much more luck than other betting types. The principle is the same you bet on either team A or team B to win, but there is a catch. Bookmakers give you a handicap; for example, team A will win by at least 5 points or team A will win by no more than 7 points. So, it’s a little harder to predict those matches, but the odds are great, and if you manage to hit some of those, you’ll make some good money.

### Future Bets

If you want to try future bets, we will advise you to do extensive research and get a hold of the game; this is by no means a bet for rookie bettors. So, what are future bets? Future bets are when you bet before the start of the tournament on the tournament winner. So, they do not recommend it to rookie bettors. But why would anyone bet on a game that will happen a year from now? Well, the odds to predict who will win a whole tournament are insane, and if you manage to hit, you can win a lot of money.

## Closing Thoughts

Remember that these are just explanations of types of bets; these are not telling you what to play. Also, there are two most essential things in betting, which are that you should always bet with money you can afford to lose, and there is no such thing as guaranteed winnings in betting, and whoever says there is, is trying to scam you.
