Available Wager Types

Moneyline Wagers
This type of wager requires that your selection win outright. Odds are determined by something called a money line or price. Money lines are represented by a number preceded by either + or a - such as -110. A price is the same money line converted into a decimal such as 1.91.

European Wagers Straight Wagers
These wagers require you to select the outcome of an event. Your choice needs to either win, lose or draw for your wager to win. Selections in these wagers are accompanied by a price only such as 1.91.

Point Spread Wagers
Your selection must win by more than (or lose by less than) the adjusted line.

Example:

Team Spread
Miami -3.0
Green Bay +3.0

With regards to point spread betting, the odds are always - 110 (or 1.91), unless otherwise noted, which means you win $100 for each $110 bet. If the game happens to tie on the point spread, i.e. neither team wins nor loses by the specified amount, the bet is cancelled and the wager is returned.

Over/Under Wagers
You can place a wager based on the total final score of the game. You can bet the final combined score of the two participating teams will be "over" or "under" a specified total. Over/Unders are always -110 unless otherwise noted.

Buying Points
Buying Points is limited to football and basketball only. In 1/2 point increments, you can buy from 1/2 a point to a total of 3 points. Buying points can only be applied to a pointspread wager or to an over/under. You cannot buy points on a moneyline.

For every 1/2 point you buy, your selection will cost you an additional 10 cents.

Example 1

The line is:

Detroit Pistons +4 -110

You buy 11/2 points, the line is now:

Detroit Pistons +5.5 -140

* Football has an exception. When you buy points that move the line onto or off of 3 or 7, that will cost you 25 cents instead of 10 cents.

Example 2

The line is:

Dallas Cowboys +2.5 -110

You buy 1/2 point, the line is now:

Dallas Cowboys +3.0 -135

Parlays
Combining different wagers from various sports is a great way to increase your potential payout. In order for a combination wager to win, all of your selections must win. Any ties remove that game from your combination and reduce your combination by one, which will, in turn, reduce the pay out. In the event that your combination is reduced to a single game, that wager will be played as a regular, single selection wager.

The bet price is calculated by multiplying the individual prices of your selections. All your selections must win for the bet to pay out.

Progressive Parlays
Progressive parlays differ from regular parlays in that they have a fixed payout and they only apply to 4 and 8 team parlays. Also, you still have the opportunity to win if you lose one of your selections. In a 4 team progressive parlay if you lose one game and win the other 3 you still win. In an 8 team progressive parlay you can win with either 6, 7 or 8 wins.

4 wins 4-1 (+400) 8 Wins 75-1 (+7500)
3 wins 1-1 (EVEN) 7 Wins 5-1 (+500)
    6 Wins 3-1 (+300)

Teaser Wagers (Football or Basketball)
A teaser wager allows you to make a combination bet on football or basketball with the point spread adjusted or "teased" in your favour. You can adjust the point spread of your selections in football by 6, 6.5 or 7 points. In basketball, point spreads can be adjusted by 4, 4.5 or 5 points.

All of your selections must win for a teaser wager to win. Any ties take that game off of your combination and reduce your combination by one, which in turn reduces the pay out. If your teaser is reduced to a single game your teaser wager will be cancelled and your wager will be returned to you.

There are also two special teaser wagers called "Sweetheart Teasers". These are always 3 team teasers where ties lose. You must win all three games in order for your teaser to win. If football the "Sweetheart Teaser" gives 10 points while a basketball "Sweetheart Teaser" adjusts your line by 7 points.

Example:

Team Spread 6.0 6.5 7.0
Miami -3.0 +3.0 +3.5 +4.0
Green Bay +3.0 +9.0 +9.5 +10.0
Dallas +6.0 +12.0 +12.5 +13.0

In this example (above), if you picked Miami in a 6 point teaser you would get Miami at +3.0 points instead of -3.0 points. So if Miami won the game or lost by up to 2 points that part of your teaser bet would win. A 6.5 or a 7 point teaser would give you Miami at +3.5 and +4.0 respectively. If you picked Dallas, you could move their point spread to +12.0, +12.5 or +13.0.

If Wagers (Win and Action)
You would place an IF Wager when you want action on a second game (or more games) without wanting to risk more than your original wager amount for a single wager. You can add up to 8 teams in an IF wager. You can also request an IF wager if 2 or more games are being played simultaneously.

Placing an IF wager is advantageous in that you only need to risk your original wager while taking action on up to 8 wagers.

There are two types of IF wagers: IF WIN and IF ACTION. Your IF WIN wager will continue only if your wagers continue to win. If any of your games lose, tie or are cancelled for any reason, your entire IF wager ends. IF ACTION wagers allow your IF wager to continue if one of your games ties or is cancelled for any reason.

Rules For IF Wagers
1. The initial choice for an IF wager must start at the same time or before the rest of your IF wager selections. Example: Your first selection starts at 1pm so your other selections must start at either 1pm or later.
2. You cannot IF a game to itself or any associated prop to that game. Example: You cannot IF the first half of a game to the full game or the other way around.
3. You are required to place a bet amount for each of your selections in the IF wager. Your bet amounts cannot exceed the previous bet total payout. Example: If you wager $110 to win $100 on your first selection, then your next selection in the IF wager cannot be for more then $110.
4. You can place IF wagers between leagues and sports

IF WIN Example

Team Line Bet Payout Status Total
Dallas Cowboys +7, -110 $110 $100 WIN $210

LA KINGS -.5, +120 No Action on this wager
Total Bet: $110
Total Win: $200
         

IF ACTION Example

Team Line Bet Payout Status Total
Dallas Cowboys +7, -110 $110 $100 WIN $210

Reverse Wagers (Win and Action)
"Reverse Bets" are a pair of IF wagers going both forward and in "reverse" order. Each team included in the Reverse will pair with another team to form two IF bets. Each bet in the reverse is an individual straight wager for the full amount of the reverse (each bet is for the same amount).

Reverse Wager Rules
1. The first selection for your Reverse wager must start at the same time or before the second selection. Example: Your first selection starts at 1pm so your other selection must start at either 1pm or later.
2. You cannot reverse a game to itself or any associated prop to that game. Example: You cannot Reverse the first half of a game to the full game or the other way around.
3. You can only reverse for the amount that you wager on the previous bet. Example: if you wager $110 to win $100 on a game the second selection can only be for a maximum risk amount of $110
4. You can place reverse wagers between leagues and sports
5. Reverse wagers can only be placed with two selections
6. Both Reverse WIN and Reverse ACTION are available.

Reverse WIN Example:
A 2 team reverse is really 2 IF Bets. If you bet on Dallas and Miami the wager would work as follows:

If Dallas Wins then Miami and If Miami Wins then Dallas


Possible Outcomes:
1) Both teams win: you would have bet a total of $220 ($110 on each IF wager) and won $400 for a total of $620 payout.
2) Dallas wins and Miami loses: In this case, the first IF bet (Dallas if win then Miami) you win the first straight bet and lose the second one. For a total loss of $10 ($220 bet and only $210 won). On the second IF (Miami if win then Dallas) you lose the first straight, having no action on the second one. For the second IF there is a loss of $110 ($110 bet, nothing won). This gives a net loss of $120 for this situation.
3) Miami wins and Dallas loses: This follows the same result as the previous example.
4) Both teams lose: In this case you would loses the first part of both IF wagers and loses a total of $220.

Asian Handicapping - Soccer Only
With Asian Handicaps, you bet on either the favourite or the underdog. There is no "Tie" bet. The handicap, or spread, removes the gap in ability between the favourite and underdog making the match a contest of equal ability. The bigger the ability gap is between both teams, the larger the handicap will be.

The simple example of this style of wagering would be the following:

Team Spread
Arsenal -0.5
Manchester +0.5

Arsenal would be considered the favourite because 1/2 a goal is subtracted from their final score. Manchester would be the underdog because 1/2 goal is added to their final score. In this example, if you were to choose Arsenal, Arsenal would need to win the game by 1 goal. If the game ended in a 1-1 tie, then you would lose your wager because the final adjusted score would be Arsenal .5 and Manchester 1.

Sometimes the handicap line becomes more complicated and a second line is added. This is called a splitball and here is an example:

Team Spread
Arsenal -0.5, -1.0
Manchester +0.5, +1.0

Again, Aresenal would be considered the favorite because of the negative line. In this case, you would be placing two bets; one for Arsenal at -0.5 and one for Arsenal at -1.0. If the game was to end with Arsenal winning 2-1, the result would be as follows:

You bet $100 on the wager which would be split into two $50 wagers. $50 on Arsenal at -0.5 and $50 on Arsenal at -1.0. Here are the possible outcomes for this example:

Arsenal Loses - Your total payout on a $100 bet would be $0.
You lose the -0,5 bet
You lose the -1.0 bet

Arsenal wins by 1 goal - Your total payout on a $100 bet would be $150.
You win the -0.5 bet and win $50
You tie the -1.0 bet and are refunded $50

The game is tied - Your total payout on a $100 bet would be $0.
You lose the -0.5 bet.
You lose the -1.0 bet.

Arsenal wins by 2 or more goals - Your total payout on a $100 bet would be $200.
You win the -0.5 bet and win $50
You win the -1.0 bet and win $50

How are my winnings calculated?
When you add selections to your Bet Card, the potential payout for your current wager is calculated and displayed automatically for you. The calculation is determined as follows:

The decimal price that we display is the price you get for the outcome of your event. This price includes your bet amount. Your winnings are calculated by simply multiplying your bet amount by the displayed odds.

For example:

Place a $100 bet at a price of 3.5

Your return would be:
$100 x 3.5 = $350

On North American Sports, the equivalent "cents line" or "money line" is also displayed. With a "positive" money line, which indicates the underdog, for every 100 cents you bet, you receive the amount displayed plus your bet amount. For example:

Place a $10 bet at a cents line of +130 (decimal price of 2.3)

Your return would be:
($10 x 130 cents) + $10 bet amount = $23 (= $10 x 2.3)

With a "negative" cents line, which indicates the favourite, for every 100 cents you wish to win, you need to bet an amount equivalent to the displayed line. For example:

Place a $12 bet at a cents line of -120 (decimal price of 1.83)

Your return would be:
$10 + $12 bet amount = $22 (= $12 x 1.83)
