How to Bet on Sports

Welcome to our page which will teach you how to bet on sports. I remember the first time I walked into a Las Vegas Sportsbook. About the only thing I understood was the team names! The big boards, all the lights, guys erasing numbers on dry erase boards and writing down new numbers. What did it all mean? Needless to say I was overwhelmed by it all and we understand if you are too. After reading this section, you should be a much more informed sports bettor and be ready to tackle it all.

We'll start off by saying that each sport has it's own set of wagering options. We'll cover some of the basics here on this page and then link you to sport specific articles which will teach you how to bet on each sport as well as what options are available to you.

How to Bet on NFL Football - We explain how to bet point spreads including directing readers where they can find reduced vig, moneylines, totals, parlays inluding sportsbooks that offer special increased odds payouts, teasers, pleasers, props and Super Bowl futures. We also list the best NFL sportsbooks and why we dubbed them as such.

How to Bet on College Football - We explain how the point spread works, moneyline bets, over/unders, parlays including progressive pars where you can lose some games and still have your ticket cash, teasers and where you can find them up to 20 points, pleasers, props and BCS futures.

How to Bet on Baseball - Unlike most other sports, baseball is bet without using a point spread. We explain how to wager using moneylines, over/unders, runlines, props, parlays and futures including season wins.
