What is a football bet? You have probably come across this question one way or the other especially if you are a football enthusiast. The basic answer to this is that it is a game where someone places a certain monetary amount, depending or in ratio with the amount indicated at stake or what is more technically termed as the wager. The wager is determined by the bets management or the organization overseeing the bets. The management controls the wager and the points spread which is actually one of the several ways by which a player could place his bet. Just to put it more clearly, the wager or the amount at stake is the amount bet upon and this is just one of the ways of placing bets. Another way is to bet on the points spread which are actually a particular number of points by which the team betted upon should specifically win over. Otherwise, which also means going just the same as or equal to the points spread or less than to it, a ‘no action’ or a ‘lose’ respectively may be incurred by the player.
A football bet is some sort of a gamble played usually online or among people who have agreed upon of doing so. But since it would be much of a hassle to communicate with people and set the wagers or the amount at stake among themselves, professional online betting sites exist to cover for such inconvenience. These sites often recommend the ways by which you could place your bets based on their forecasts as to which teams have the greatest probability of winning and the probable scores at the end of the game Online betting has been gaining popularity recently due to the ease and convenience attached to it. Apart from that, online betting sites offers tips and ideas which could help a player placed his bet in a more advantageous position. A football bet depends on the amount the player decides to place.
The winning amount is typically set by the site managing the bets and usually varies per site and per particular game. There are several ways of placing the best, as already mentioned previously. These include straight bets (which means the team waged upon should win by the indicated point spread), parlays (combos or carrying over of the amount at stake plus wins to the next wager), moneyline wager (betting on which team would outright win the game), half-time wager (wager at the first or second half), teasers (involves a selection of two or more teams to be waged upon), totals (wages on the total scores of the two teams playing), proposition bets or exotic (bets other than the straight and over-under category).
Examples of proposition bees would which team would score first, which team scores last, how many scores a team makes in a specific number of minutes and seconds, will the team that scores first win, what will be the shortest touchdown, what will be the total field goals, etc.
