Types of Bets
For betting options, PointsBets offers the traditional bets with a few unique options that you can’t find everywhere.
Futures – This bet is on games that are far away on the calendar.
Straight Bets (Moneyline) – These bets are placed on who you think will be the winning team.
Totals(over/under) – You can bet on how much you think the two teams will score in total. The total of team A’s score and team B’s score. This bet is made in an over/under style where you bet that the total will either be over a certain number or under.
Props – This bet can be made on a team, player, or game. Props are bets on events that happen during the game, for example you could make a bet on which team scores first.
Parlays – These are a series of bets made on multiple games, but all the bets are linked and you must win them all.
InPlay bets – Points Bet offers the ever popular in play betting which is betting on a game while it is live.
Points spread – This is a bet on the difference of points between the two playing teams when the game is finished.
Spread betting – This is their unique betting system that allows you to bet on many different aspects of the game while spreading your bet across these different areas. The more you are right on your bets, the more you will win. The opposite is true. The more you are wrong, the more you lose. This can get complicated but once you get it down it can be really interesting. They do have a stop loss cap on how much you can lose if you choose to use it but be aware that with the stop loss comes a cap on how much you can win as well.Back to top ↑
