When it comes to gambling, odds are pretty much everything. From the way a game is over (e.g. Heads, we win. Tails, you lose) to how much you have to wager (e.g. if you’re playing Roulette, you need to place a €20 bet or more) to when you can expect to see your money back (e.g. most Casino games give you 48 hours before your funds are credited to your account). In the world of sports betting, however, things are a little different. Sometimes your team will cover the spread (i.e. win by more than the pre-game margin), sometimes they won’t. Knowing when your team is good versus when they are bad can often be a matter of chance rather than skill (i.e. more random factors involved). This, however, does not mean that you should not enjoy betting on sports. After all, when your team does end up covering the spread, you can be sure that they were probably the better team all along!
What Are The Odds In Mobile Betting?
Mobile sports betting has become a hugely popular option for those who want to wager on their favorite sports while on the go. Thanks to providers such as bet365 and Mr. Ting, it is now possible to place a wager on your mobile device without needing to be connected to a WiFi network or have a stable WiFI connection. What’s more, some mobile sportsbooks will give you the option of choosing between several data packages (i.e. varying data allowances) so that you can continue to browse the Internet while placing your wager. If you’re wondering how the odds work in mobile betting, you’ll need to check out the websites of the various mobile sportsbooks to find the relevant information. However, in general, the sports odds are the same as in regular betting. For example, if you were playing at a land-based establishment, you would need to check the rules of whatever game you were playing before placing your wager. If you don’t know the rules, you cannot predict whether your team will win or lose. This, in turn, makes it virtually impossible to calculate the exact odds for a particular sporting event. What’s more, even when using an online odds calculator, you cannot be sure that the results are accurate, as they are sometimes randomly generated. For these reasons, it is usually best to just check the relevant websites of the various sportsbooks rather than trust an online odds calculator completely.
Do The Money Line Or Spread Stake Work In Mobile Betting?
The two main forms of betting when playing on a mobile device are the money line and the spread. The big difference between these two options is that, with the spread, you are neither betting on the result of the game nor are you backing your team to win (i.e. you are taking a spread bet). When playing the spread, you are essentially just betting that your team will either win or lose the game (e.g. Will Celtics beat the Heat? Will the Packers cover the spread against the Chiefs?). If you’re new to betting, you might not know which one is which, so let’s quickly discuss the pros and cons of each option.
On the one hand, the money line bet gives you the advantage of being able to easily compare the odds of multiple games. For example, if you are playing multiple games and want to compare the odds of one team winning versus the other team winning, you can simply choose which side of the line you want to be on (i.e. the winner or losers) and it will automatically compare the games for you. One disadvantage, however, is that you cannot beat the house when it comes to the spread. All reputable online sportsbooks will offer you the option to enter a certain amount of money (i.e. the stake) for each game you place, meaning that you cannot win extra unless you bet more than the amount you’re allowed to bet (i.e. the fixed limit). This also means that you cannot get anything for free, which some people might find frustrating when playing on a mobile device where data charges are usually billed to your account rather than a paid-for plan. Another con with the money line bet is that you cannot choose the exact teams you want to back, as the bookmaker will always put together a combination of winners and losers (i.e. a parlay). This means that you might be backing a combination of winners and losers that, in turn, will cover the spread rather than the two individual games you were actually betting on.
On the other hand, the spread bet gives you the advantage of walking away if your team loses, as you have nothing to risk. This is also the case if your team wins, as you will win whatever is bet on the opposite side of the spread. One disadvantage of the spread bet, however, is that it is more difficult to find games that are taking place right now. This is mainly because you need to search for the games that are taking place at a later time rather than getting notified when a new game starts. Another con with the spread bet is that it is usually more difficult to get your money back if your team loses, as there will be a significant amount of money involved. This, in turn, can make it more difficult for some people to justify spending money on a game they know they are going to lose. Some games are also only available for the spread, rather than the money line, so if you want to play those particular games you will need to choose the spread option rather than the money line. Another con with the spread bet is that, since you are not backing your team to win, it is usually not as exciting to watch the games unfold as it is when you are betting on the outcome of a contest (i.e. the money line bet).
The key takeaway from the discussion of money line vs spread is that you cannot have it all. You will either need to choose between the two or, if possible, try out a new form of betting that gives you the advantages of both worlds. Having said that, however, it is definitely possible to enjoy betting on sports through a mobile device. Just make sure you are aware of the risks associated with the various types of bets when playing on a mobile device, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
