All straight bets pay 110/100 unless otherwise specified.
A straight bet is a wager on one team to win or a total to go over
or under, whose outcome for wagering purposes is determined by a point spread and/or
money line odds.
Straight bets are used in all sports, including circled games.
Let's take a few moments to discuss 'lines' or 'odds'. The most common line is a
money line. In football and basketball there is also a point
The money line is simple: it's the money you have to place on the favorite to win
$100. The favorite is the team the odds makers think will win.
For both the money line and the point spread, the favorite is identified by a negative
sign (-).For example: -155 in a money line and -5 in a point spread. So, this means
that if you bet on the money line you bet $155 to win $100, and only the team you
are betting on has to win.
If you bet on the point spread, you usually bet $110 to win $100, but in this case
the team you are betting on has to win by one or more points than the point spread.
The team that is not favored is called the underdog, and it is identified by a plus
sign (+) or no symbol at all.
In the previous example, the favorite was -155. In a standard line the comeback
- or the underdog, would be +145. This is called a dime line or 10 cent line. This
is the most common line used. If the difference between the lines is more than 10,
it is called a wide line. In this case you have to bet $100 to win $145, and only
the team you bet on has to win. In the point spread, the favorite was -5, so the
underdog would be +5. With point spreads, the number of points is always the same.
You only need to change the -/+ sign. So, this means you will need to bet $110 to
win $100, but your team can lose by up to 4 points and you still win. If your team
loses by 5 points you push, and they now have to lose by 6 points for you to lose
Here is a quick summary of straight bet rules:
- If you bet on the favorite in a money line, you risk more to win less, but only
the favorite needs to win.
- If you bet on the underdog in a money line, you risk less to win more, but the underdog
needs to win.
- If you bet on the favorite in a point spread, the favorite has to win by more points
than in the spread.
- If you bet on the underdog in a point spread, the underdog can lose by one less
point than the point spread for you to win.
