Remember – set this up before you want to start gambling.  In researching your choices of sportbooks, you may find an annoying amount of information. Be patient and diligent. There are scams out there and you must keep your guard up. Here are some internet sportbooks that come highly recommended. Football is the undisputed king of the sports gambling world. Professional football slightly edges college football in terms of popularity.

 

The best bet you can make with football is a simple straight bet, one individual game at a time. Each game is usually handicapped by a point spread, where one team is favored over the other which is the underdog. Let’s take the Colts-Dolphins game. If you bet on the Colts, they must win by more than four points for you to win your bet. If you bet on the Dolphins, they must either win the game, or lose by three or less points for you to win your bet. If the difference is four points, say 24-20 Colts win, then the bet is a push and all money is returned.

 

Think of the Dolphins as starting with a four-point head start, or just add four points to the Dolphin’s final score. If the actual final score is Colts 17 – Dolphins14, then for gambling purposes the score would be Dolphins 18 – Colts 17.
