Understanding the different types of online bets in the U.S.

You can make various types of online bets, so understanding the different kinds of bets is essential to successful betting. As a rule, the best bookmakers offer a range of bets that cover different types of sport. If you are new to online U.S. sports betting, you may want to stick with more common bets for example Moneyline, Spread betting, and Total over/under. These are the most common and easy to grasp bets. Once you are familiar with them, you can find good betting opportunities and explore other bet types. And boy there are plenty of other types of bets! As you will see, some are more complex than the rest.

Main types of online bets in the U.S.

  1. Moneyline: This is the most common bet in online sports betting. It is commonly known as the “win bet” since you simply have to choose the result of a specific game when betting, say the Denver Nuggets to beat Utah Jazz (just an example, no affiliates here!) Usually, in Moneyline, you bet on score results. On the betting site, you will notice “+” and “-“ signs beside the teams. These mark the odds. The team with the “-“ next to it means it is the favorite to win. Say, for example, Utah Jazz play Denver Nuggets in the NBA. The odds might be listed as Denver Nuggets -200. This means a $10 bet on the Nuggets will return $5 profit if it wins.
  2. Spread bets: Spread bets are slightly more complicated. This type of bet focuses not on a team to win, but more specifically on how much will they win by. In our example, the bookie might offer spread of odds for +5 for Jazz and -5 for Nuggets. Denver is the favorite so needs to beat Utah by more than 5 points for this bet to win.
  3. Total Over/Under bets: These bets are extremely common and can offer more value than a Moneyline bet. It is also quite simple, you bet on over or under a specified score or result. Generally, the betting site will set a number like total points, total runs, total goals, or total touchdowns. All you need to do is bet on over or under that number. Like the rest, pay attention to the odds.
  4. Parlay bets: Parlay bets involve betting on two or more selections as part of the same bet. Each of your selections needs to land in order to win. It’s everything or nothing, but because the odds are multiplied together they offer higher payouts. This type of bet is popular among all sports, and can also involve picking two or more results from different sports. Some bookmakers like Bet365 allow you to build your own parlay bet on the same game, but some bookies don’t allow same game parlay bets.

Bottom line

There are plenty of other types of online bets, but those listed here are the most popular bets available at U.S. online bookmakers. Make a selection at your favorite bookie to see the range of bets available. In the end, remember to have fun while betting on your favorite teams and sports.
