Sportsbook Betting Options

Sportsbook betting options give you numerous ways to be in action every day.

While some may be more popular than others, each form of online sportsbook betting has its own unique appeal and characteristics that make it both enjoyable as well as an opportunity to make cash.

Sportsbook betting options include sides, totals, parlays, teasers, money lines, halftimes and additional choices like propositions, contests etc. Let’s look at the most popular of these sportsbook choices.

Side Betting

This is the most popular form of sportsbook betting in which gamblers simply pick one side over another in a matchup. There are two ways to bet sportsbook sides, either with pointspreads or with the money line. The pointspread is where gamblers can either lay points with the favorite or take points with the underdog.

Money line

Instead of laying or taking points gamblers either lay odds with the favorite or take odds with the dog if they choose the money line at the sportsbook.


This form of sportsbook betting, also known as over/unders is when gamblers will bet on whether the combined score between two teams will go over or under a set number at the online sportsbook.


In this form of sportsbook betting, gamblers have the options of betting either on just the first half of a game or the second half of a game, (or both). You can bet halves on football and basketball.


In this form of sportsbook betting, gamblers will group together several different bets into one single bet in which all of the bets must win for the parlay to win, at increased payoff odds at the online sportsbook.


These are just like a parlay at the sportsbook except that the sportsbook odds are enhanced by anywhere from six points (on a traditional “Las Vegas Style” teaser) to twelve points on what is known as a special sportsbook teaser.

Propositions and Contests

Props are offered oftentimes on marquee games throughout the year and are varied in the choices from player proposition to team props. Contests are also offered throughout the year, especially during football season.
