Sports betting is the ultimate money game for the sports fan. Through any of a number of online sportsbooks you can bet on the outcome of baseball, basketball, football, hockey and soccer games, car races, boxing matches and other popular sporting events. If you know your favorite sport inside and out, you can overcome “the juice”, beat the oddsmakers and fatten your wallet. Also, placing a sports bet makes the outcome of the game more meaningful and the game itself more enjoyable and thrilling.
The sportsbook and the oddsmaker
To place a sports bet, simply go to a sportsbook — a place that accepts sports bets. VIP Sports and Interwetten are examples of online sportsbooks. Many sportsbooks also accept bets by telephone. You may sometimes hear sportsbooks referred to as bookmakers or bookies. These terms are generally reserved for disreputable or illegal operations — the leg-breaker variety.
Note that a sportsbook is not the same as an oddsmaker. The sportsbook simply accepts sports bets. An oddsmaker is a person who sets the betting odds. Most major sportsbooks use odds set by Las Vegas oddsmakers. These oddsmakers typically work for major hotel sportsbooks.
Most online sportsbooks are located in the Caribbean and Europe.
Types of bets
You can place a number of different bets including straight bets, parlays, teasers and over/unders. Click on the following links for details.
Straight bets and the point spread
Straight bets are the most common sports bets. When you place a straight ทางเข้า789Bet bet, you simply pick the team that will win or lose the game.
Oddsmakers don’t set a point spread for baseball games. Instead, they set a moneyline, which gives odds that one team will beat another.
Total or over/under bets
A total wager is a bet on the combined number of points scored in the game by both teams. Bettors can also wager on whether the teams will score more or less points than the line.
A parlay is a combined bet on two, three, four or more games.
A teaser is like a parlay, but you can add or subtract points from the spread to make your bets stronger.
Bettors lay odds on a team’s chance of winning the championship – at the start of a season.
Sportsbooks often post odds and accept wagers on a variety of other activities, just to keep things interesting. Bet on a presidential race or who wins the Oscar.
Payoffs and odds
The payoff for football, basketball, and hockey is $100 for every $110 wagered, unless otherwise noted.
Bettors wager a fixed amount on one team, and if that team wins, bet another fixed amount on a different team.

Player Wins $1,000,000 at Oriental Casino
On Friday 19th January 2001, Susanne Uebler, 38, from Long Island, New York, was announced the Oriental Casino “Win a Million” million dollar prize winner. Her name was chosen at random from all the competition entries. She then correctly answered a trivia question over the phone on air on Mike Craig’s casinogazette.com online radio show to win the one million U.S dollars grand prize.
“I was shaking all over to hear Mike say I’d won the million,” said Susanne. “I think for a moment the whole world was shaking.”
Later she added, “I am still a little bit out of breath but as the reality sinks in, I’m a very happy person. I entered the competition without even in my wildest dreams believing I would be the winner of one million dollars.”
Susanne was born in Austria and moved to the U.S in 1994. She spends her time doing water sports and hanging out on the beach in the summer with her favorite companion, a baby parrot called Simba.
Oriental Casino is owned and operated by CyberCroupier Ltd (www.cybercroupier.com).
CyberCroupier says this is the first time anyone has ever won a million dollars in an online casino promotion. Payment of the prize money will be made in equal monthly installments of US$3,333 over a period of 25 years. The first payment will be made March 2001.
