What types of bets are available on PointsBet?
The Arizona Department of Gaming requires PointsBet Arizona to observe all the laws and regulations. These regulations will determine which betting markets are available on the site, but there is no shortage of betting possibilities.
The NFL is the most popular betting market in the United States and is very popular in Arizona as well. Along with the biggest international betting markets, the other three major professional sports will also be available.
In addition to the available betting markets, PointsBet will have a comprehensive range of other betting types available. Here are a few examples of the types of bets available at PointsBet Sportsbook Arizona:
A moneyline bet is a wager on a team to win the game outright at the PointsBet sportsbook. In order to bet on the superior team in a given contest, bettors must pay a premium. A wager on the worst team, on the other hand, is enticed by bigger potential gains.
The foundations of PointsBet spread betting are as follows: you place a wager on a line, and the more you are correct, the more you gain; the more you are incorrect, the more you lose.
What does it mean to “cover the spread”? The favorite team has covered the spread if they win by more points than the market predicted. The underdog squad can also cover the spread in one of two ways: 1) If they win the game or 2) If they lose by fewer points than the market predicted.
Totals (over/under) betting
A total bet is a bet on the total number of predicted points scored by both teams in any particular contest. Bettors can place a wager on whether the combined score of the two teams will go “over” or “under” the given total.
Consider the case when PointsBet lists a total of 47 points for a contest between Team A and Team B. If a bettor bets on the over, he or she must score at least 48 total points to win. The wager loses if the total is 46 or less, whereas a hypothetical final score of 27-20 or exactly 47 points results in a “push,” meaning the bettor's deposit is repaid.
A “prop bet,” sometimes known as a “proposition,” is a wager placed during a game on a specific player or team-related event. Each prop bet has odds associated with the possible outcomes of the event. Consider it a hypothetical scenario that PointsBet provides to bettors, who then decide whether it will truly happen.
Let's imagine you go to a sporting event where prop bets are available. Player props, team props, and game-related props are all possibilities.
A futures bet is a bet on a player or team's performance that will not be determined until the end of the season. Betting on a team to win its own league title is the most prevalent future bet.
A parlay is when you bet on two or more outcomes at the same time and combine the wagers into a more complicated gamble with escalating returns. For the total bet to be a winner, all bets on the parlay must win.
A classic parlay would be betting the Spread on Team A vs. Team B and the moneyline on Team C vs. Team D. Parlays can be made up of many fixed-odds combinations spanning multiple sports, divisions, leagues, and more.
For specific games and players, PointsBet gives bettors the unique opportunity to choose from a variety of spreads, totals, and player props. Normally, a bettor would have to parlay many lines to achieve a more favorable result. You can make a parlay or bet singles on PointsBet by selecting from over 70 totals and spreads. To get a “teased” line, they don't have to be in a parlay.
A straight bet is a wager made solely on the outcome of one event. Spread, moneyline, total (or over/under), propositions, and more are all examples of straight bets. Straight bets are the simplest and most suitable for beginners and casual bettors.
Fixed odds and points betting
Fixed-odds betting allows bettors to lock in their odds and pricing at the time of their wager. Once the water is collected and accepted, the price will not fluctuate in the future. Within the same game, there may be multiple markets.

In addition to fixed-odds bets, you can also wager points bet. Points Betting takes a traditional wager like a spread (which involves the favorite team winning by a predefined number of points), a total (the total number of expected points in a given matchup), or a prop (a wager based on player performance) and adds a unique twist in which a bettor's possible future winnings or losses aren't set until the game is over.
