Basketball Wager

Basketball wagers are easy to make. With over 12,000 professional and college games each season, wagerting lines are available daily for regular season games, tournaments and playoff action.

Basketball wagers are similar to football wagers - point spreads are used to handicap the favorites and underdogs for each game. Over and under totals are popular in basketball wagerting as well. Sportsbooks usually require 43 minutes of play for action in the NBA while for college basketball, 35 minutes is needed.

A full discussion of the different kinds of basketball wagers is presented below.

Kinds of Basketball Wagers

Point Spread Bets (Straight Bets)
The team wagered on must win by the point spread given at the time the wager is placed. The odds are $1.10 to win $1.00 (-110) unless otherwise indicated. Due to changing events, the point spread may fluctuate at any time.

Money Line Bets
The team wagered on just has to win the game. The amount that wagertors lay or take for each game may vary. The money line that is read at the time of the wager is the money line kept regardless of any line movement.

For example, a wagertor could choose one of two wagers on the following match-up: L.A. Lakers -200 at Portland Trailblazers +180. If the Lakers win, the wagertor who laid $200.00 wins $100.00. If Portland wins, the wagertor who wager $100.00 wins $180.00.

In a totals wager, wagertors must wager on whether the actual combined scores of the two teams will either be over or under a certain pre-determined number, called the total for the game. All totals lay $1.10 to win $1.00, unless otherwise indicated.

For example, in a Magic-Sixers game, the over/under total is given as 187. For the wagertor who wagers on the total points of this contest by both teams to be "over" 187, the combined final score of both teams must exceed 187. For the wagertor who wagers on the total points of this contest by both teams to be "under" 187, the combined final score of both teams must be less than 187. If the combined score equals 187 the game is considered "No Action" and the original wager is returned.

All wagers must go the full half for action (first-half and second-half). All half-time wagers are calculated the same as a straight wager unless otherwise indicated. There are no teaser plays or buying of points on half-times. On half time wagers, the overtime period is included as part of the 2nd half.

Parlays (also known as Multiples)
A parlay is a wager of 2 or more teams (selections) or propositions in no particular order. All teams wagered on in a parlay must win. If there is a tie, the parlay reverts down to the next lowest number for payoff. For example if a player selects 4 teams, and one ties, the parlay becomes a three team parlay. For a 2 team parlay -- a tie and win becomes a straight wager (-110) payout.

A teaser is a selection of two or more teams in one wager in which the point spread is adjusted in the wagertor's favor. The number of teams selected and the number of points selected determines the payout odds. A "Tie" or "No Action" and a "Win" on a two team teaser shall constitute a "No Action" wager. A "Tie" or a "No Action" and a "Loss" on a two team teaser shall constitute a "Losing" wager. Ties on a three or more team teaser shall revert to the next lowest wagerting bracket. For example a tie on a three team teaser becomes a two team teaser.

Futures and Propositions
Future wagers are based on the outcome of events that happen each year. All wagers are final. There will be no payouts until the conclusion of the specified season.

Proposition plays are wagers based on the outcome of events. Odds change daily and all wagers are considered action for the odds quoted at the time of the wager.

In the event that the selection (person, team, or other) the wagertor wagers upon does not participate in the game/event due to injury, etc., no refunds are usually made.
