What Is Official Betting?

Official betting (also known as “in-play”) is a legal form of sports wagering. It’s a popular option for NFL fans, who can bet on both spreads and totals during the course of the game. It’s also a popular option for fans of baseball and hockey.

Sports betting laws vary by state, and it’s important to read up on the local regulations to make sure you have access to the bets you want to place. Some states, for example, only allow betting on games that take place at in-state venues. Other states may have rules that ban certain types of bets, such as player props.

College sporting events are also popular with bettors, but laws can vary by state. For instance, Ohio does not allow betting on collegiate football games or on a team’s wins.

Football season is the biggest time of year for sports betting in the US, and many top betting sites offer an extensive array of options for this popular sport. You can bet on spreads and totals, or you can place a live bet, which lets you watch the action unfold in real-time.

NCAA basketball is another popular sport for betting, and most top sportsbooks offer a wide range of wagering options. Some of these include player props, which allow you to wager on the winning team’s future players.
