How to bet on sports in Pennsylvania

Here are several ways you can bet on sports in Pennsylvania from our friends at SportsLine:

Against the spread: Football is king, as is this betting style. If Philadelphia is listed as the 7.5-point favorite against New York, Philadelphia must win by 8 points or more to cover the spread. New York can cover that spread by winning outright or losing by 7 points or fewer.

Push: If neither team can cover the spread, it is considered a "tie" called a push. If Philadelphia closes as a three-point favorite against New York and then wins the game 27-24, neither team covers and all bets on the spread are returned.

Outright: Simply put, this is a bet where you choose one side to win an entire sporting event. This method can be used across all sports but is especially popular when betting on title fights, golf tournaments and car races.
