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?!
Our predictive analytics model assesses the performance of teams and players in the same situation and the current state of the particular game, and updates in real time following every play.
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 profit. Good news, you also get back your $100 stake – equalling a $220 payout.
What is a Spread bet?
The spread, or points spread, is a popular bet type that is a sportsbook’s way of evening out two unequal teams.
The favorite gives points to the underdog, meaning they must win by a certain margin to ‘cover’ the spread. The underdog can lose the game and still win the bet. This occurs if they lose by a lower margin than the specified spread number.
Example: The Steelers are 5.5-point favorites (-5.5) against the Jets (+5.5)
If you bet on Pittsburgh against the spread, they need to win by 6+ points to cover the spread.
If you were to bet the Jets as underdogs (+5.5), they would need to lose by 5 or less – or win – for you to profit.
What is an Over/Under bet?
An Over/Under bet is picking whether the total points scored by both teams will be over/under the sportsbook’s points line. You are NOT betting on who wins.
Example: The Nets and the Pistons have an Over/Under total of 223.
You can either bet they will combine for Over 223 or Under 223.
If you bet the Over and the score is 224+ you win. If you bet the Under, the points total must be 222 or lower for you to win.
