Types of Bets Available
Bet Rivers offers any number of different types of bets to choose from, but for their most popular selections, you can choose from straight bets (a single pick), parlays, which feature two or more picks or round robins, which allow you to place three or more bets and pair them together in separate parlays. For more on the types of bets available see below:
A futures bet is a bet placed on action that’s happening at some point in the not too distant future, that’s usually tied to an end point of a season or event, such as Super Bowl winner or NL Cy Young award winner, or player to go first overall in the NBA draft.
Moneyline bets are the most basic wager in all of sports betting. Simply put you’re betting on Team A or Team B to win the game. If you’re betting on a favorite, they will have a minus sign in front of the odds, giving you less money back for your wager than an underdog, which will have a plus sign attached to the number.
Bet Rivers currently accepts live-in-game action for certain events, so you can bet on props or teams while the game is happening.
Parlays are combined of two or more single wagers into a single ticket, which then multiples the odds to a higher amount than two single bets on separate tickets. In order to win a parlay bet, a bettor must get all the bets correct on that ticket.
A point spread bet is a wager on the difference of points between two teams in a single sporting event. The point spread number is provided by Bet Rivers, and then a bettor chooses what side they want to ‘cover’ that differential. If the New England Patriots are favored by 7.5 points over the New York Jets, but only win by seven points, the Jets would have covered that spread, and bettors who placed their wagers on the Jets +7.5 would have won.
Straight bets are types of betting wagers on a single game or event that carries a point-spread, game total, money line, run line or puck line.
A prop bet (short for proposition bet) is a wager that is independent of the final score of a game or outcome. These wagers encompass bets that aren’t point spreads, totals or moneylines. Some examples:
- Kansas City Chiefs over 11.5 wins in an NFL season
- Luka Doncic under 8.5 assists in an NBA game
As soon as you have entered at least three or more picks on the bet slip, you can place a Round Robin bet. The number of possible Round Robin bets depends on the number of possible outcomes, which is tied to how many selections you have made. The bets possible with your picks will be displayed automatically.
A teaser is like a parlay bet but for point spreads. You can combine two or more games together (usually a maximum of four games) and get points shaved off the spread.
Totals or over unders
The main types of totals bets feature action on the score of a game or the score of a team in a game. A bettor places action on whether they think the total amount of points scored will be higher or lower than the amount listed by Bet Rivers
