Official Betting and In-Game Betting

Official betting is a term used to describe wagers that take place at a licensed sportsbook. Some of these wagers may be made online or on mobile devices, while others are made in person at a physical location.

The most common type of official betting is spreads and totals, which involve betting on a team to win or lose a game within a certain margin. These bets are available throughout the NFL season and are a popular way to bet on teams.

In-Game Betting

Live in-game betting is a highly popular form of sports betting that allows bettors to watch the game on their phones or computers and make bets during the game. This betting method offers an opportunity to capitalize on a team’s momentum and change of fortunes, as well as the chance to bet on more improbable outcomes.

In-Game Betting Rules

The rules for in-game betting are different from those for out-of-state games and are set by the state in which you’re located. Some states have higher limits than others and some have different restrictions on the types of bets that can be placed, so you’ll need to check out the state’s regulations before placing your first bet.

Correlated Plays

Correlated plays are bets that involve an athlete or player’s stats being changed after the game is complete. For example, if the Red Sox reach first base on an error during a game, the bet can be voided if that error changes after the game is over. However, if the same player hits a home run in the next game, that bet will be valid as long as the stats remain the same.
