Double Result

This is a bet on who will be winning at half time and at full time. It is one bet, predicting the outcome of both halves of the game, and both predictions must be correct to win. A draw is a valid outcome for both halves. There are nine possible outcomes (where H = home team, A = away team, D = draw):
H-H, H-D, H-A, D-H, D-D, D-A, A-H, A-D, A-A

This is a bet on who will score the first or last goal in a match.

Match Bet

This is a bet between two people, to predict who will get the best score in a tournament. The players may not physically play against each other in any round; this bet is based purely on their individual scores over the whole tournament (i.e. 72 holes).

back to top



3 Ball Bet

This is a bet on a single round of golf between three players, to predict which of the three players will win a specific round (i.e. 18 holes). There is no draw option. This bet is usually available only during the first or second round of the tournament, and Dead Heat rules apply.

back to top



2 Ball Bet

This is a bet on a single round of golf between two players, to predict which of the two players will win a specific round (i.e. 18 holes). The draw is a valid bet. This bet is usually available only during the third or fourth round of the tournament.

Future (Tournament) bets

In a Tournament, a number of participants are all competing to come first and therefore win the Tournament. Competitions, leagues, races and championships are also classed as Tournaments. Outside the US, Futures are known as Tournament bets.

To Win bet

It is a bet to predict who will come first (in a race, a league, a competition etc), and applies to all sports.

Multiple bets

In a Multiple bet you can combine several different predictions, all of which must be correct for the Multiple to win. You can mix different sports in a Multiple bet.

The minimum number of selections in a Multiple is two; the maximum number is eight. In the event of one selection becoming void, the bet drops down to the next level, e.g. a three-team Multiple would drop to a two-team Multiple; a two-team Multiple would drop to a single bet.

Side

A bet on the Side is a bet to predict who will win the game, and is usually handicapped. The handicap is known as the Spread. The underdog will be given a head start of a particular number of points, and the favourite will be handicapped by the same number of points. If the favourite has a handicap of -2.5, for example, it must to beat the underdog by three or more points to still win the bet. If the final score, taking into account the Spread, is a tie (known as a Push), the bet is considered void, and your stake is refunded.

Baseball Side bets do not have a Spread attached to them. They are linked to the selection of one or both starting pitchers.

Total

This is a bet to predict whether the combined score of both teams will go either over or under the total figure nominated by the odds maker. If the combined final score falls on the total specified, it is classed as a Push, in which case the bet is considered void, and your stake is refunded.

Moneyline

This is a bet to predict who will win the event outright, i.e. without a Spread. This bet is less popular than betting on the Side, because the price for the Side is usually better value. If the final score is a tie (known as a Push), the bet is considered void, and your stake is refunded.

back to top



Runline

This is a bet to predict which team will score the highest number of runs. This bet is handicapped, with the underdog always given +1.5 points advantage. If the final score, taking into account the handicap, is a tie (known as a Push), the bet is considered void, and your stake is refunded.

back to top



Parlays

In a Parlay you combine several different predictions (in one sport or across other sports), all of which must be correct for the Parlay to win.

The minimum number of selections in a Parlay is two; the maximum number six or ten, depending on the sports you choose. In the event of one selection becoming void or pushing, the bet drops down to the next level, e.g. a three-team Parlay would drop to a two-team Parlay; a two-team Parlay would drop to a single bet.

Teasers

A teaser is a special type of parlay in which you adjust the point spread or total of each individual play in your favor. The price of moving the point spread (teasing) is lower pay off odds for winning wagers.

back to top


Pleasers

A Pleaser is a special type of parlay that pays better odds than a standard parlay for moving the point spread or total against your favor. Essentially you make it more difficult for each wager in the Pleaser to win in return for payoff odds nearly 3 times higher than normal parlay odds. This is the exact opposite of a Teaser. In order to win, all the bets in the Pleaser must win by the new adjusted line. This bet is an excellent way to maximize winnings in games where the lines do not accurately predict the true outcome.
