6) What are the Most Common Types of Sports Bets Can I Make in North Carolina?
Spread bets are bets where you pick a side of a game but the two sides are given even chances of winning by forcing one team to win by a certain number of points. For example, here are lines for a game between the Charlotte Hornets and the Golden State Warriors.
Charlotte Hornets +13.5 (-110), moneyline +600
at Golden State Warriors -13.5 (-110), moneyline -900
The Warriors are favored by 13.5 points in this example. This means that if you bet the Hornets, you are getting 13.5 points, so if the Hornets win the game or lose by 13 points or less, you will win the bet because of your 13.5-point cushion. On the other side, when you are laying 13.5 points as the favorite, you need the Warriors to win by 14 or more to win the bet.
Final Score: Warriors 121, Hornets 110. Hornets cover even though the Warriors won the game because the +13.5 point spread is enough to cover an 11-point defeat.
The moneyline is a bet where there is no spread; you are just picking the winner of the game. In the example above, the Hornets moneyline is +600, which means that for every $100 wagered, you win $600 if the Hornets win the game outright. They receive the plus side of the moneyline since they are the underdog, and picking them rewards you with nice odds since they are projected to likely lose the game. On the flip side, if you bet the Warriors moneyline at -900, you have to bet $900 to win $100. They are the favorites, so if you decide to bet the moneyline instead of the point spread, you are forced to bet additional money to win $100.
In the example above, the Warriors moneyline would be the winner, as they won the game outright. The spread is irrelevant for a moneyline wager.
This is a bet wagering on how many total combined points will be scored in a game. For example, the Hornets-Warriors game has an over/under of 228.5 points, which means that the oddsmakers are projecting a combined points total of 228.5 between the two teams. If you think the teams are going to score more than 228.5 points total, you bet the over, and conversely, if you think it’s going to be a defensive struggle, you can bet the under hoping that the total points scored equals 228 points or less.
The final score being 121-110 means the total is 231, so the over is the winner.
A parlay is a bet where you combine multiple bets into one bet, and you get increased odds since it is harder to win. If you do a three-team parlay, you select three different teams from three different games, and if you win all three of the bets, you hit your parlay for longshot odds (6-1, so $100 to win $600). Going 0-for-3, 1-for-3 or 2-for 3 is all the same, and you lose the parlay bet. It’s all or nothing, which makes them tough to hit.
7) What are the Most Popular Sports Teams/Players to Bet on in North Carolina?
North Carolina has a ton of sports and teams to choose from, including three major professional franchises and a rabid -- and we mean rabid -- fandom for a handful of college teams.
College basketball is especially popular in North Carolina, and the rivalries are incredibly fierce. There are four teams in the ACC, and all have gone through periods of being titans of college basketball: Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Wake Forest. Duke and North Carolina especially are long-reigning blue-chip programs and make up one of the most heated rivalries in all of college sports.
Those four schools also have football teams that have had varying levels of recent success -- North Carolina has been the most consistent of late, but all have been bowl-contending teams at one time or another in the last 20-odd years.
Professional teams in North Carolina are also fairly popular, though only one of the three Big 4 sports franchises has experienced recent success: The Carolina Hurricanes, who also have the state's only Big 4 championship (2006). That said, the Panthers are probably the most popular team, and the Hornets have some exciting young players as well. The Panthers and Hornets are based in Charlotte and the Hurricanes in Raleigh.
