Types of Bets
DraftKings is one of the top sites when it comes to the different options it avails to its customers. There are plenty to choose from for people from beginners, intermediate, and the seasoned betters.
InPlay bets – This is where the wager is placed while a game or match is in action. DraftKings takes InPlay betting one step further by not only allowing bets for who will win but also which player will make what point to make the win. It raises the stakes a bit but definitely gets the adrenaline pumping.
Cash Out – If you are betting on an InPlay game and you see that things are taking a turn for the worse, DraftKings offers the choice to Cash Out before the game is over. This will minimize your loses.
Moneyline – The oldest of all sports betting options, this is just a wager of which team will win. You either win or lose. Nothing too complicated.
Spread – This type of bet requires that you guess at how much the difference in points will be from team A to team B. If you think the losing team will lose bigtime, the spread will be a bigger number. If the win is going to be just by a hair, you would bet on a smaller spread.
Over/Under – These bets are made on a placeholder. Either you decide that a team will win by making over a certain amount or under a certain amount. You could also bet over/under on player stats.
Parlay – These bets are a cumulation of more than one bet. You have to win all the bets in order to win but the payout is much larger than just betting on singles.Back to top ↑
