Sports fans who like to bet on baseball and hockey are often puzzled by the numbers and symbols around odds for these sports. What does -180 in baseball or hockey odds mean, for example? And in sports like basketball and football – where you have the option of betting the point spread or the moneyline – which is better?

Over Under Betting

Over Under odds or ‘totals’ betting is growing in popularity and is often the best wager you can make on a game.

Let’s face it – some games are a toss-up and you really can’t find an edge to pick one team over the other.

Future Betting Lines

The Pittsburgh Steelers hadn't even finished off their rally to beat the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII when online sportsbooks had opened the Patriots as favorites to win Super Bowl XLIV.

Future betting (aka betting on futures) such as Who will win the Super Bowl have grown in popularity in recent years. And it’s not just in football, although preseason future bets on which team will win the AFC East, who will win the BCS College Football Championship and other fun pigskin bets are in vogue.
