Sports betting is now legal across the United States. Whether you live in New York or Los Angeles, you are free to start a gambling adventure in an online casino of your choice.

If you are a fan of sports, you must be excited with the idea of becoming an active participant through sports betting. To start your journey, you will need something more than just picking a winner. Some guidelines will help you at the beginning.

Choosing a trustworthy sportsbook

Sportsbooks are responsible for taking bets on sporting events. They cover the markets like football, basketball, hockey, soccer, tennis, golf, boxing, horse racing and many others. Most legal sportsbooks have websites and apps to make an online experience more convenient.

Sportsbooks tend to provide the detailed information about teams’ performances and winning soccer odds 1x2 based on various factors. These include a location, weather conditions, sports performance, and so on.

Mastering the types of sports bets

Sports betting can’t be efficient without knowing the types of bets. What do you bet on? How do you bet? These are the questions to be answered while choosing the most convenient type of bet.

Straight Bets

Straight bets are known as single bets intended for single games. These are the basic type of betting to be mastered by beginners.


Being the most straightforward type of bet, it focuses on the team that might win the game. It involves no conditions or point spread. For example, a money line bet needs you to pick the team that probably wins the game.

Point spreads

A point spread is considered to be a margin of victory. Oddsmakers estimate a point spread which the favorite team has to win. The underdog can lose the game by less than the bet amount or win the game by doubling a reward.


An over/under bet is focused on the total number of points from both teams in a game. It’s also known as “the total.” By placing this bet, you can either bet over or under.

For over, the combined score must exceed the points total to achieve the winning outcome. For under, the combined score must be less than the points total.

Futures Bets

High-risk bets are usually wagered on the season’s outcome. You can bet on who will win the Champion League, how many games will be won by an NFL team, and so on.

As you know, it’s hard to predict the winner of one game. It’s even harder to predict the season’s winner. Please mind this while choosing the most reasonable type of bet.

Parlay Bets

A string of bets must be true to become a winner. For example, you can bet on the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks to win their upcoming games. If just one or two teams are going to win, the bet is considered to be lost.

Prop Bets

A bet on unusual aspects of the games. Compared to the previous types of bets, the final score isn’t often the main factor to consider. You are free to bet on how many rebounds a football player will have in a game, who will score the first corner in a game, or will there be any yellow cards by the end of a game. As you see, the variety of betting options is immense.

Developing a bankroll for sports betting

Before you start betting on sports, you should have a financial plan. Putting all money at stake is a silly idea. Instead, you should build up a monthly budget to manage your funds accurately.

Once you have your bankroll in front of you, make sure to stick to it. This will let you monitor your losses and wins and estimate the profitability (if any) by the end of the month. Here are three bet sizing strategies:

  • Risk-averse - spending 1-2% of the bankroll per bet
  • Risk-neutral – spending 3% of the bankroll per bet
  • Risk loving – spending between 4% and 5% of the bankroll per bet

Once you develop a betting budget, you can still change it by the end of the season. Whilst developing a new budget, you will consider the previous mistakes.

Sportsbooks to start betting on sports online

When starting to bet on sports, you will need to find a bookmaker. As you can guess, this decision can’t be random. Market research needs to be done to explore the available options. It’s important to check out its interface, bonus features, and services. You will then make a final choice.
