If the sportsbook is bustling with action, it must have been UFABET time. Whether you’re betting on the NFL or NCAA, football betting action is a flurry of activity throughout the season. It may be a bit confusing for the newbie sports bettor, but football betting is really in two forms: straight bets and parlays bets.
Football Betting – Straight Bets:
This is the most reliable option for every successful football bet. A straight bet means you’re betting on one football match. If you place bets on more than one game on one ticket, that’s called a parlay. We’ll talk about that in a minute.
If you place a straight football bet, you could place your bet on either a particular side or a total. When you place a bet on a specific side or total, you “pick the side” during the game. For example, the New England Patriots are playing the Seattle Seahawks. So if you’re betting on a team, you’ll be betting with either Patriots or the Seahawks.
Every game has a points total (except NCAA football, which is most games). This is the number of points scored by the two teams. If you place a bet on an amount, you’re either under or over the total. For instance, let’s say the total is 47, and you take them over. To win, both teams need to be able to score 48 or more points (47 would be considered a push, which would mean you’ll get back your bet).
The Art of Betting on Football – Parlays:
Okay, so you’re familiar with straight bets. Straight bets are where you bet on just one item per wager. If you wish to bet several things at once, it’s called a parlay. It is possible to bet on 2 or 20 things (depends on the betting book).
Let’s say, for instance, you wager on the Seahawks and over the total of your ticket. That would be a 2-team parlay (even though technically there’s only one team in the parlay).
The more items you place on the ticket, the more you’ll win should they all fall. So, naturally, the more items on the ticket, the more difficult it will be to win.
Parlay bets are an all-or-nothing proposition. If one of the picks fails, the ticket is dead. Particular sportsbooks offer specials to get close, but this is highly uncommon.
If you’re interested in placing football bets using parlay tickets, you might look into “teasers,” which are parlayed tickets with added points to help you. For instance, rather than choosing the Packers at -10, you could purchase them at 3. However, returns are less as the risk is minimized.
It’s fun to bet on UFABET and there’s nothing more thrilling than hitting the sportsbook with an enormous winning ticket. I hit straight football bets and parlays throughout the entire season. I am looking eagerly to the NFL along with NCAA football seasons.
