How are in-play probabilities calculated during a live game?

In-play probabilities are statistical metrics that project the likelihood of a bet winning at any given point by simulating the remainder of the game. Cool, huh?!

Based on the performance of historical teams in the same situation and the current state of the game, the model updates in real time following every major event during the game.


What is a Moneyline bet?

A Moneyline bet is simply based on which team you think will win the game. Moneyline bets are available on all sports and are a popular bet type.

For all Moneyline bets, favorites are given a 'minus' designation, such as -120, -250 or -500, meaning to win $100 you would need to bet $120, $250 or $500 respectively.

Underdogs on the other hand are given a 'plus' designation, such as +120, +250 or +500, meaning if you bet $100 on your team (at +120 odds) and they win, you win $120, plus you get back your $100 stake, equalling a $220 payout, and so on.


What is a Spread bet?

The Spread, or points spread, is a popular bet type which handicaps teams back to a more even chance of betting.

In this bet type, the favorite gives points to the underdog, meaning they have to win by a certain margin to 'cover' the spread, whilst the underdog can lose the game and still be a winning bet if they lose by a lower margin than the spread.

For example, say the Eagles are 5.5 point favorites (-5.5) against the Colts (+5.5). If you bet on the Eagles they need to win by 6 points or more to cover the spread, but if you bet on the Colts and they lose by 5 or less, or even win, then you win the bet.


What is an Over/Under bet?

 Simply put, an over/under bet is picking whether the total combined scores of both teams from a game goes over, or stays under, the nominated sportsbook points line.

For example, if the Pacers and the 76ers have an over/under total of 223, us bettors can either bet Over 223 or Under 223. If you bet the over and the score is 224 or more you win, and if you bet the under and the score is 222 or lower you win.
