Welcome to the next level in gaming with this exciting new addition to the Betting family. When people hear the word ‘Betting’ they think of sports betting and, to be perfectly honest, that’s what we usually have in mind when we think of betting. However, in reality there is so much more to betting than just sports. There is a whole world of opportunities just waiting to be explored inside Betting.
The +2.5 in Betting refers to the inclusion of two additional odds positions to the standard three per trade, offering the potential to earn further gains. For example, if a sportsbook offers the Cleveland Cavaliers at +2.5 over Pittsburgh Penguins and you place a bet on the Cavaliers, your winnings would be doubled to +5!
Included in this update are two incredible games that you can use to familiarize yourself with the concept of extra odds positions – the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Super Bowl. Let’s dive in and take a closer look.
What is the Stanley Cup Playoffs?
One of the best things about the +2.5 in Betting update is the inclusion of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. If you’re not familiar, the Stanley Cup playoffs are the series of games that decide the winner of the Stanley Cup. To put it simply, the winner is the team that accumulates the greatest number of points during the regular season. The games are usually close, so even the most casual of observers can occasionally find themselves drawn into the action. If you’re looking for an excuse to explore one of the biggest stories in hockey, the Stanley Cup playoffs are certainly it!
The great thing about the Stanley Cup playoffs is that they give you a taste of what is to come later in the year during the Super Bowl. For those that might be curious, the Super Bowl is the annual championship game that decides the winner of the National Football League season. Like the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Super Bowl can be a nail-biter. However, the excitement surrounding the game itself is unmatched. Even if you’re not a football fan, you might find yourself completely absorbed in the action-packed contest simply because it’s such a thrill to see the best of the best compete for the greatest prize in American sport!
How does the Super Bowl work?
Speaking of nail-biters, the Super Bowl is a bit like the Stanley Cup Playoffs in that it pits two teams against each other in an attempt to claim the title. However, whereas the Stanley Cup Playoffs decide the winner between two leagues, the Super Bowl is contested between all sixteen teams that make up the NFL. As mentioned above, the games can be extremely close, so betting on the Super Bowl can be just as exciting as watching the games live.
As with the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Super Bowl is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with a team you might otherwise not get the chance to see play. The game is often contested over the course of four quarters, so you’ll have plenty of chances to get to know the coaches, players and, most importantly, the team themselves before the final whistle sounds and the winners are announced.
If you’re looking for a way to unwind on a Sunday afternoon, you can’t really go wrong with a game of fantasy football or a trip to the sportsbook to place a bet on the Super Bowl. It might not be the most exciting game to watch, but it’s certainly one of the most exciting times in sports for bettors.
If you’re looking for an excuse to get into the mood for the winter, you can’t go wrong with one of the biggest events in American sport. With the 2018 Winter Olympics in full swing, now is the perfect time to brush up on your winter sports knowledge. If you’re looking for places to bet during the winter season, you can’t go wrong with the Stanley Cup Playoffs or the Super Bowl. Not only will you have the opportunity to make some fast money, you’ll also have the chance to lay down a serious wager on one of the greatest sporting events of the year. How could you go wrong?
