With the many ways to bet there are many ways to win, they often depend on the type of sports and the bettor’s knowledge.

When betting on NBA basketball or football (NFL or NCAA) America bettors often use the point spread or the moneyline. A straight wager bet usually requires a bettor to pay $110 to win $100, if the player wins he will gain $100 the remaining $10 is kept by the bookmaker and is called a “vig” or “vigorish”. If the bettors choose bet do a straight wager the winning team must win by a specific margin which is determined when the bet is placed. For example if betting on a baseball game between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays, if the point spread is quoted as Yankees -3, the Yankees have to win by more than 3 points to win as such a 5 to 1 victory would win the bet on the Yankees.
