There are countless ways that you can bet on sports games, so it can be difficult to decide which wagers to make. That’s where our expert picks come in. There are some variations from sport to sport, but for the most part, the most common betting picks are:
● Moneyline Picks
● Over/Under Picks
● Picks Against the Spread
● Parlay Picks
Read on to find out how each of these work..
Outright bets are one of the easiest types of bet you can make, so it’s no surprise moneyline picks are the simplest picks to understand. In a moneyline bet, you just choose the winning team or player. if you pick right, you win the bet.
No matter whether you’re looking to bet on College Football or the NBA, OddsChecker publishes new moneyline picks every day, providing detailed analysis behind the pick. Our handicappers use expert insight and analysis to find winning picks to give you the best chance of finding value from your bets.
Moneyline odds are easy to read and are usually expressed with a number with a + or - before them. Odds with a + will pay out more than the original stake, while a – will pay out less (plus your original bet).
So, if you bet $10 on +200 odds, you’ll receive $30 back ($20 + your original $10 stake).
If you bet that same $20 on -200 odds, you’d get $15 back ($5 + your original $10 stake).
Odds with a - are usually given to the favorites, while odds with a + are typically given to underdogs.
Finding bets that will beat the handicaps set by leading American sportsbooks can be difficult. That’s why our experts review all the available data to produce totals and over/under picks for all major sports, including MLB, Boxing, and MMA.
They’ll examine the offensive and defensive trends of each team, account for their past performance, and factor in any patterns relating to home-team advantage, weather, time of day, and how long a team has been on the road.
At OddsChecker, we do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.
Spreads are designed to help even out the odds between teams, meaning fans can bet on either side even if one is a strong favorite. Without it, there’s little incentive to bet on an underdog.
When you bet against the spread, you’re betting that the underdog will win, or that it will lose by less than the point spread. These can be great bets to make and have proven very popular for Football and Basketball fans.
Our team of handicappers pick the best ATS bets to make for all major sports. These free picks against the spread are available through our website and are updated regularly ahead of each game.
A parlay is a combination of multiple wagers together into a single bet. Parlays are also sometimes known as accumulators, combo bets and multi-bets. Parlays increase the amount of money paid out for a winning bet, but it also worsens the odds.
A parlay will typically contain 2-10 separate bets together, and as a general rule, the more bets included, the higher the return. However, the odds worsen inline with this increased return as you need all wagers to be successful.
Since it’s a single bet, a parlay will be shown on one betting slip or receipt, rather than you receiving one for each wager. Because parlays are more difficult to correctly pick, it’s even more important to use the expert knowledge of handicappers who can spot the best opportunities.
At OddsChecker, our team are knowledgeable in every sport from horse racing to soccer and from college football to the NBA. So no matter what sport you want to make a parlay bet on, we always have the best picks available.
To win a parlay, all of the wagers in your bet must be successful. If your parlay contains wagers on five different games and you have picked right in the first four, but then lose the fifth, then you’ll receive nothing.
While it’s more difficult to win a parlay, the rewards are typically much higher. For example, a parlay containing 10 teams could yield $10,000s from a bet as small as $25. Some bettors enjoy the risk/reward ratio of a parlay, so prefer to make these types of bet.
If your parlay is successful, you’ll receive your winnings from the sportsbook just like you would with any other sports bet that you make.
OddsChecker is transparent about who makes its free picks. The name of the handicapper behind the pick is displayed clearly, along with their past record and ROI. This lets you find the handicappers who have had the most success.
