Sports book betting guide, glossary, terms

Before you play, make sure you know the common betting terms you'll see. There are dozens of ways to bet on sports, and this handy sports betting guide can help you figure out what some of the most popular sports betting terminology means.

Money line: Use this betting style to wager on soccer's biggest tournament. If France is listed as a -200 favorite against English, that means that you'd need to bet $200 on France to return $100 on that side to win. If England is the +200 underdog, you could win $200 on a $100 bet if England wins.

Outright: This popular betting style requires you to pick one athlete to win an entire sporting event. This sports betting method is very often used for wagering on golf tournaments, car races and title fights.

Prop bet: If you're looking for a more interesting bet to place, prop bets are wagers on outcomes other than the final score of a game and are popular across all the major sports. Commonly-placed prop bets include how many touchdowns a running back will score or how many three-point shots a basketball player will hit.

Against the spread: The best way to play along this football season is with a spread bet. If Philadelphia is listed as the 7.5-point favorite against New York, that side must win by 8 points or more to cover the spread. New York can cover the spread as the 7.5-point underdog by winning outright or losing by 7 or fewer to cover.

Push: If neither team in a game can cover the spread, the result is a "tie" or push. If Philadelphia closes as a three-point favorite against Washington and then wins the game 27-24, neither team covers the spread and all bets are returned.

Teaser: This is a special kind of bet that lets you adjust the points spread in football. If your two favorite football teams are seven-point favorites and you are unsure if they will cover their spreads, you can use a six-point teaser to drop each team to a -1 favorite and only need two points to cover. Both the risk and reward are lower.

Parlay: This high-risk, high-reward betting method involves two or more sides on one wager and all sides must win for the bet to be a winner. A $100 bet on a four-team parlay at 11-1 odds could return $1,100, but that is only if all four sides win. If three or fewer sides win, the bet is a loser.

Over-Under: This betting method is great for wagering on high-scoring games like in basketball. If a sportsbook sets the Over/Under for a game between Phoenix and New Orleans is set at 210, you wager whether you think the final score will be over or under 210.

Futures: You aren't limited to wagering on games happening right now. Futures bets let you wager on sports outcomes that will take place months from now. The basketball season has barely begun, but you can still place a futures bet on which team will win each conference.
