Street Talk: SPORT BETTING
Caesars Sportsbook has grown its presence tremendously since its acquisition of William Hill’s US assets was finalized. The app provides a simple and solid sports betting experience with odds that are always competitive. There’s also a rewards program for bettors and a steady stream of odds boosts and other promos. Parlays are very appealing to bettors because they pay out much more than the total winnings of their constituent straight bets. However, it is much more difficult to hit on a parlay than it is on a single wager. Many sports betting platforms now offer the opportunity for punters to place multiple bets in quick succession during the course of a match.
One example of a prop bet that has absolutely nothing to do with the actual action on the field or court would be predicting the color of Gatorade that douses the coach of the Super Bowl-winning team. If multiple teams/players have a “-” in front of the odds, the bigger number is the favorite. For example, if the Buffalo Bills have +700 odds to win the Super Bowl, a $100 bet would net $700 if they won the title.

Odds for such a bet generally are expressed in a ratio of units paid to unit wagered. The team wagered upon might be 50–1 (or +5000) to win the Super Bowl, which means that the bet will pay 50 times the amount wagered if the team does so. In general, most sportsbooks will prefer this type of wager due to the low win-probability, and also the longer period of time in which the house holds the player’s money while the bet is pending. For this same reason, most professional bettors do not prefer to place futures bets.
