Sports Betting and Parlays

There are times sports bettors think they’ve zeroed in on multiple winners and are tempted to bet parlays — betting multiple teams, with all required to win for the bettor to collect.

The temptation is in the payoffs. Let’s use parlays on point-spread bets as an example.

Sports Betting on Baseball

When sports bettors turn to baseball, point spreads, or a “run line,” are available just as they are in football or basketball. If the Reds are playing the Cardinals in St. Louis, with the Reds listed at +1.5, then Cardinals bettors need them to win by two runs or more, while Reds bettors win if Cincinnati wins the game or loses by only one run.

More commonly, though, baseball bettors focus on the money line. The run line isn’t as popular as point spreads in football and basketball.

It’s November in the Mississippi Delta!  It seems that each month has its own theme, October – Breast Cancer Awareness, November – Thanksgiving, December – Christmas.  But for those who live, work and play in the Mississippi Delta, November is a time of dramatic change.   We lose an hour of day light as we set our clocks back an hour and the lush green fields of summer return to their natural state as the farmers end their harvest and prepare the land for next years new beginning.

Sports Betting and House Edge

Sports Betting And House Edge With Money Blog

In a previous entry discussing the point spread, over/under and money line wagers at sports books, I mentioned that the house typically charges an extra 10 percent on point-spread and over/under bets. To win $10, you must bet $11.

Bettors are sometimes misled into thinking that gives the house a 10 percent edge, which would be very high casino standards.

Actually, the house edge is 4.55 percent. Here’s how it works:

Greg Gaston on Teeing Off in Tunica

Considering that I have been heavily involved in sports for years, it probably is no surprise that I try to find something sport-related almost everywhere I go. Even though I am a fan of all sports, my favorite to play is golf. Anytime that I can get away to get in a good game of golf, I do. Sometimes I want to get out of Memphis, but don’t have time to travel a long distance to other courses. Luckily for me, Tunica is just down the road.
