Official Betting

Official betting is the process of placing a bet on an event or game and then getting paid if that bet wins. Bets can be placed on individual teams, the overall winner of a competition or tournament (i.e. the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl), or on a combination of these outcomes in a parlay.

The National Football League, or NFL, is the most popular sport to bet on in the United States. The NFL has games all week long, but it’s the Sunday afternoon games that bring in the most money from bettors. As such, you can expect the best sports betting sites to have NFL betting options available.

When betting on horse races, there are many different types of bets that can be made. A “winners-only” bet is a wager on the winning horse in exact order; a “quinella” is a bet on the first two finishers in any order; and a “trifecta box” is a bet on the first three finishers in any order. The more horses that you pick correctly in a wager, the larger the payout will be.
