Online Betting On World Cup 2006
The types of ways to bet on American Football are based on the Money Column and Line Column. We have given samples of each below so you can better understand the ways to bet on American Football.
Money column Example:
Chicago Bears +150
Green Bay Packers -150
A bet on a matchup between two teams may be set by a money line ( Money column). If a matchup is determined by a money line, then it will cost the customer more to wager on the favorite. For example, the Green Bay Packers may be favored over the Chicago Bears by 150. In this example, the customer must lay $150 in order to win $100 if Green Bay Packers wins the game, no point spreads are involved. If Green Bay Packers loses, the customer loses $150. However, the customer could bet on Chicago, in which case the customer would lay $100 in order to win $150 if Chicago wins the game. If Chicago loses, the customer only loses $100, because Chicago is the underdog.
Line Column Example:
Green Bay Packers -14
Chicago Bears +14
In all straight bets which are set by a point spread, the customer lays $11 for every $10 the customer wishes to win. For example, the Green Bay Packers may be favored by 14 points over the Chicago Bears. A customer who wishes to win $10 on Green Bay must give Chicago 14 points, if Green Bay wins by more than 14 points than the customer wins $10. If Green Bay wins by less than 14 points or loses outright, then the customer loses $11.
Total Column Example:
A customer can also bet whether the combined number of points scored by the two teams in the game will be over or under the total set by the odds maker. For example, if the total is 22 and you believe that the combined points scored by the two teams will exceed that number, you would bet over 22. In that case you will win $10 for every $11 you bet.
