A sportsbook is a place where gamblers can bet on various sports, like baseball, football, soccer and horse racing. I hear you think: ‘but isn’t that exactly what a bookmaker is?’ Technically, sportsbook refers to the place or organization. Bookmakers are the men and women that determine the betting odds.
How does sportbetting work?
The concept of a sportsbook is very simple. First bookmakers determine the betting odds for all kinds of sports matches and/or tournaments. Then you can place a bet. In principle it is like this: if you choose to bet ‘with’ the odds, you have a relatively large chance of winning, but the amount you will win is small. If you bet against the odds, your chances to win are small (as predicted by the bookmaker) but if you win, you will win a lot. What is the best strategy for betting on games.
What can I bet on?
A sportsbook is, as the name suggests, all about sports. Depending of course on the sportsbook, you have a lot of sports to choose from: football, soccer, baseball, golf, boxing, swimming, horse racing, car racing… you name it. Some sports are only popular for gambling during the largest or most important tournaments, like world championships or the Olympic Games.
Is it legal? Whether or not gambling is legal depends on the country or state that you live in. In the United States it is as follows. Since 1992, only Delaware, Montana, Nevada and Oregon are allowed to wager on sports. This is written in the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. In most casinos in these four states, especially in Nevada, you will find betting windows, boards with the betting odds and large screens for the gamblers to watch their game. Other countries have other regulations regarding gambling. In some countries gambling is banned completely and it occurs only ‘underground’. Other countries have a system with licenses and authorities. We advise you to look up the rules and laws that apply in your country or state before you start gambling.
There is a great number of sports that you can bet on, like baseball, basketball, football and soccer, but also horse racing, car racing and boxing. Besides the great number of sports that you can choose from, most sports have multiple betting options.
The National Football League is very popular amongst gamblers. Of course you have the option of betting on the outcome of single matches (Game Lines). But you can also bet on individual halves or quarters. In most cases you won’t be able to bet on the 2nd and 4th quarter before the match has started. Sometimes betting on the second half of a match is only possible after the first half has ended, so you only have the halftime break to place your bet.
Besides just the scores, there are also more creative bets available, like which team scores first, at what time the first point(s) will be scored and how long the longest touchdown is. Obviously, the first two of these bets must be placed before the match has started.
You can find the same betting options for NCAA Football matches but in most cases you will have less betting lines to choose from. That is simply because the NFL is more popular.
The same general betting lines (game line, 1st half line etc) as in NFL are available for NBA matches. You can also bet on the first scoring team or player. The difference lies in the sports-specific bets. There is no longest touchdown in NBA of course, but instead you can bet on the highest scorer and the highest scoring team per day.
You can find the same betting options for NCAA Basketball matches, but just like the difference between NFL and NCAA Football, you will probably find less betting lines.
If you are a soccer fan, you have an immense number of bets available. World Cup (qualification), Europa League, Champions League… but also friendly matches are often available for betting. You can bet on group winners, but also on the winner of a whole tournament or the top scorer of a tournament. It is important to know that, in most cases, you are betting on the outcome after 90 minutes of play, so without extra time or penalty shootout.
Other populair sportsbook
With respect to gambling, the NHL is pretty much the same as the above: popular and a good amount of betting options available. Other sports, such as boxing, horse and car racing, golf and tennis have in most cases less betting options. But still, you can do more than only bet on who will win. In horse racing for example you can place three types of straight bet: win, place and show. Win means your chosen horse will end first. Place means it will end first or second. Show means it will finish the race first, second or third. You can also bet on the first two or three horses, either in fixed or random order. Search for ‘exacta’ or ‘trifecta’ bets if you are interested in this type.
