A sports handicapper is another name for a professional sports bettor. Handicappers bet on sports for a living, and often sell their picks or are involved in sports and sports betting media. I love reading game previews, seeing what people are saying on Twitter, and following the debates on apps like theScore or silly TV shows like First Take. I’ll even admit that I’m guilty of letting stats I hear on “Pardon My Take” influence some of my bets. Remember, when all is said and done, you can take credit for the games you’re right about and blame whatever losses you have on that ESPN game preview you read.

• It is often expressed in percentages, also referred to as the probability.
• As with point spread bets, you must generally wager \$110 to win \$100.
• A lot of time players get on their Bovada account and already know what they plan to bet on.
• You also need to know that prices on spreads/totals do not impact who/what is favored, it is used to determine how much the bet pays out.
• Positive money lines show the profit that would be won from a \$100 bet, not including the original wager.

This is offered much less often, so you shouldn’t expect to see it on every fight. It’s a yes or no proposition bet, wherein you bet on whether or not the fight will last through every round. The other popular hockey bet is the total, aka the “over/under” for a game. This is another wager where alternative totals can get bettors friendlier odds if, say, one result is more heavily favored than another. — In case of tournament play, when games can go to overtime or penalty-kick shootouts, overtime does not count for most bets.

However, if you were to stake £10 on odds of 1/5, your return would only be £12. Therefore, a winning £10 bet would result in £1 in winnings, amounting to a return of £11 (your £1 winnings plus your £10 stake). Less likely events tend to have higher odds and offer a larger reward, while more likely events have a lower risk attached and therefore a lower reward. The true count is used in two ways, to determine how much to bet and how to play your hand. Unless it is obvious, every situation has a line in which you should play one way if the count is above the line and another if below. For example, a 12 against a 6 may dictate that you stand if the true count is -1 or greater and hit if the true count is less than -1.
