The meaning of 3-way betting can vary from sport to sport, but it generally refers to wagering on the outcome of an event where a participant may be able to affect the outcome via some action in the game. In hockey, 3-way betting is typically used to refer to wagering on which team will score the next goal. In a 3-way hockey bet, you are wagering on which team will score the next goal, and on whether or not the last goal will be a goal or an assist. An example would be, “If the Blues score the next goal, I will win; if the Avalanche score the next goal, I will win; and if the Sharks score the next goal, I will win.” In a 3-way football bet, you are wagering on the outcome of the game, and possibly who will score the next goal or first touchdown. You might wager, “If the 49ers win the game, I will win; otherwise, I will lose.” The general idea is the same, but in a 3-way football bet, you are wagering on a team’s score as well as the score of the game (e.g., will the Bills score a touchdown or will the Bengals score a touchdown?).
In hockey, the first goalie-neutralizer is used to describe a situation where one team has a goaltender and the other team has neither. When the team with the goaltender scores a goal while the team without the goaltender is looking at a 2-1 deficit, the team with the goaltender is said to have scored a first-goalie-neutralizer goal. For example, if the Avalanche scores a goal while the Flames are looking at a 2-1 deficit, then the Avalanche have scored a first-goalie-neutralizer goal. This is because the Avalanche’s goaltender automatically stops the initial shot on goal, giving the Avalanche the lead.
Many consider this as one of the most exciting situations to occur in hockey because it can lead to anything from a three-way-goaling frenzy to overtime and even a win for the team with the advantage. It is essentially the opposite of a shutout for the away team.
In hockey, the last goalie-neutralizer is used to describe a situation where one team has a goaltender and the other team has neither. When the team without the goaltender scores a goal while the team with the goaltender is looking at a 1-0 lead, the team without the goaltender is said to have scored a last-goalie-neutralizer goal. For example, if the Flames score a goal while the Avalanche are looking at a 1-0 lead, then the Flames have scored a last-goalie-neutralizer goal. This is because the Avalanche’s goaltender automatically stops the initial shot on goal, giving the Avalanche the lead.

A double gamewinner occurs when a person or entity wins both a set of games that were wagered on separately. For example, in a three-team football wagering pool, you might win $100 on the Bengals-Buffalo game and $200 on the Browns-Steelers game. In a four-team football wagering pool, you might win $150 on the Bengals-Browns game and $300 on the Steelers-Raiders game. What’s interesting is that, while in theory you are playing four separate games and winning twice, in reality you can only cash out on one of the wins because in most cases, the winnings from one game cannot exceed the amount wagered on the other games.
Since most states in the U.S. allow online betting, players have the advantage of being able to participate in numerous games from their home. This makes winning multiple games more common because there is more opportunity for winnings to stack up. While this scenario is appealing because it potentially makes up for boring or frustrating games (depending on how you look at it), it can also lead to many people participating in a wagering pool who never intended to do so. Be sure to vet your participants thoroughly before getting started so that you are not shocked by large winnings at the end.
A split decision occurs when a person or entity wins a bet where the outcome is somewhat inconclusive. For example, in a four-team football pool where you wagered $500 that the Browns would beat the Bengals, but the score was close (7-6), you would win $500 because it is not conclusive who actually won the bet.

What you need to watch out for when betting on sports is the term catch-weight. This refers to a situation where there is no actual betting line because the odds are so skewed in favor of one team or player that any wager you make is meaningless. For example, if the home team is 3.7-to-1 to win the Super Bowl and you wager $10 that they will win, you would lose your $10 because this is not actual betting; it’s more like a coin flip. If you’re not careful, you could find yourself in a lot of meaningless wagers where you win just because the other players or teams in the pool are such big favorites.
To avoid this, make sure that all of your wagers have something to do with the actual game. If you’re playing against a large number of people or if there’s any possibility that someone could take your wager the wrong way, then you might want to consider lowering your wager or finding an alternative way to bet on the game. You could potentially find better odds somewhere else or simply make the wagers to see which team or player will score the next goal or first touchdown. In some cases, you might be able to get extra credit for handling or winning large wagers as a bonus for providing such great service.
When implementing multi-team pools, it is important to keep in mind that each team member will have to have their own unique account set up with FantasyBet. By having a separate account for each member of the team, you will be able to keep track of the individual wins and losses, making it much simpler to keep score at the end. Having separate accounts also helps protect users from inadvertently placing wagers on the other team’s games, which is why most online sportsbooks will not allow this to happen. This can be a hassle for those who try and place bets accidentally, but the security and protection is well worth it in the long run.
