That’s exactly what happens on the hour mark and regarding our bet, the match is over. CornersCorners are another option to place your over/under bets. You can bet either on the home side or the visitors’ tally, or combined. An important detail is that the corner-kick has to be taken in order to count for the statistics. I seriously considered to include Totals (Over / Under) bets in the main wagers cluster. Still, those bets have so many distinguishing characteristics, they deserve to be mentioned separately.
Betting the underdog Lions, you are “taking” six points, and they can lose by five or fewer, or win the game outright, and you have a winning bet. If the Bears win by exactly six, both sides “push” and all bets are returned. It’s also a push if the final score equals 42, otherwise the over or under will win.
If you are betting on a -200 favorite, you need to lay $200 to profit $100, and you would collect $300. If you are looking to play a +175 underdog on the moneyline, you would lay $100 to profit $175 and collect $275. Again, there are no point spreads involved, you are simply picking the winner of the game. Who would want to bet on a football game between the best team in the league and the worst? The outcome gets a lot more interesting when you give the bad team a 20-point head start. Betting on the favorite with the point spread requires that team to win the contest by a certain amount of points.
That’s an ideal that rarely happens – especially in sports without a pointspread, like NASCAR and golf. If Team A is getting too much action, I’ll move the line toward Team B to try to achieve that balance. My personal preference is to tweak the vig from –110 to –105 or +100 before taking the bigger step of moving the spread a half-point or more.
Multiply this number by the moneyline to see your potential profit. If I spend $50, I will make .5 (50/100) of the moneyline if I win. On +135 odds, I would make $67.50 profit off of a winning bet. Understand that fractions greater than one mean a team is an underdog.
Half Time / Full TimeHalf time / full time combos can be a fun bet and if combined with another bet can add great value to your selections. With this type of bet, You’re betting on the result of the match at half-time and full-time. The bookies offer prices for every outfield player to open the scoring, to grab the game’s last goal or to slot home at any time during the game. Logically, strikers are given the shortest odds, but you can always try to hit it big time with backing some of the high-scoring defenders. Note that own goals do not count for those kind of bets.
