What is a Straight Wager?
The team wagered on MUST win by the point spread given at the placement of the wager. For straight wagers, unless otherwise indicated, the odds are $1.10 to win $1.00. Games that tie are considered “no action” and money is re-deposited back into the account. Due to changing events, the point spread may fluctuate at any time.

Player wagers $110.00 on Miami -7 to beat Buffalo +7
If Miami wins by more than 7 points the player wins $100.00. The total payout, including the initial wager, would be $210.00. If Miami wins by exactly 7 points… the game is considered “no action” and all money is returned to the bettor. If Miami wins by less than 7 points, the straight wager is lost.
What is a Money Line?
Simply put, the wagered team has to win the game. The amount one lays, or takes, for each game may vary. The money line that is quoted at the time of placing the wager is the money line, regardless of any later line movement.
The player wagers the Money Line on Miami -160 at Buffalo +140.
If Miami wins, the player would have wagered $160.00 to win $100.00 (plus the return of the $160.00 wager). If the player wagered on Buffalo, the player would wager $100.00 to win $140.00 (plus receive the $100 wagered amount).
What is a Total?
The combined score of both teams for games wagered on is the TOTAL. All totals lay $1.10 to win $1.00 unless it is otherwise indicated.
The player wagers $220.00 on the ‘OVER’ in the Miami / Buffalo game. The total for the game is 45.
If both teams’ combined score is MORE than 45 points, the player wins $200.00. If the combined score is EQUAL to 45, the game is considered ‘No Action’ and the amount wagered is re-deposited to the player’s account. If the combined score is LESS than 45 points, the wager is lost.
What is a Parlay?
This is a bet of 2 or more teams (selections) in no particular order. All teams wagered on a parlay MUST win. If there is a tie, or ‘No Action’, among the selections made, the parlay reverts down to the next lowest number for payoff purposes. In the case of a 2-team parlay, it reverts back to a straight wager.
The player wants to make a 5 team parlay: Miami -7, New York +3, Seattle -4, Denver -10, and San Francisco -8.
If ALL win, the player collects at 20-1 odds. If 4 of the games win and 1 game is considered ‘No Action’, the player collects at 10-1 odds. If 1 of the teams lose, the ENTIRE Parlay bet loses.

What is a Teaser?
A Teaser is a selection of two or more teams in one wager in which the point spread is adjusted to your desire. The number of teams selected, and the number of teaser points selected, determines the payout odds. A ‘Tie’ or ‘No Action’ and a ‘Win’ on a two team teaser shall constitute a ‘No Action’ wager. A ‘Tie’ or ‘No Action’ and a ‘Loss’ on a two team teaser constitutes a ‘Losing’ wager. Ties on a three team, or more, teaser shall revert to the next lowest betting bracket. Example: A tie on a three team becomes a two team teaser.

What are European Odds?
European odds are different from the North American style of odds. In North America, money lines are used to determine the line. A team that is +140 would be a 40 point underdog. This means that for every $100 wagered, the player would win $140. For this to be true in a European style of betting, the odds would be 2.40– meaning that for $100 wagered, the player would win $140. The 2.40 represents the entire amount wagered and won by the player.
