Action Points

This type of wager is available for football and basketball. This is for the bettor who not only can predict which team will win the game, but by how many points. Your wager is capped from 1 point to a maximum of 10 points, and the wager you risk cannot exceed your available balance. On this type of wager, you risk $110 for every $100 wagered.

Example:

Boston Celtics 195
Cleveland Cavaliers -5

Suppose you wager $100 a point on the Cleveland Cavaliers and ask for a cap of 10 points. Cleveland must win by at least 5 points, and for every point over the point spread of 5 that they win by, you win $100. You have the chance of winning between $100 and $1,000. If Cleveland wins by 9 points, your net winnings would be $400. On the other hand, if Cleveland fails to cover the point spread, you risk $110 for every point that they fall short of the 5-point spread. You can also use totals either over or under, or the underdog in the game.

Money Lines

With this type of wager, you pick which team is going to win, disregarding the point spread.

Example:

Miami -280
Detroit +240

If you wager on Miami -280 you lay $280 to win $100.

If you wager on Detroit +240 you lay $100 to win $240.

Parlays

This play is a selection of multiple teams (2-10 teams) in no particular order, all in one play. All teams must win by the point spread margin. The more teams in the parlay, the greater the payoff.

Example:

Portland Trail Blazers +4
San Antonio Spurs -10

The payout in a 2 team parlay is 13/5. This means you are risking $100 to win $260. In case of a tie or no action the parlay will revert to the lower level payoff, except in a 2 team parlay where a tie reverts to a straight bet. (Remember, you cannot lose more than your original risk amount in a parlay. So if you had a 2 team parlay for $100 with a PUSH and it reverted to a straight bet, it would be risking $100 to win $91)

Teasers

A Teaser is a bet on 2 or more teams or selections.

The difference between a teaser and a parlay is that in a teaser YOU ADJUST (tease) THE LINE IN YOUR FAVOR.

For example, the New England Patriots are giving up 7 points in one game and the Buffalo Bills are getting 10 points in another game.

A 6-point two-team teaser would adjust the points spread 6 points in the customer's favor.

New England would now give up only 1 point (7-6=1) and Buffalo would now be getting 16 points.

In a case of a tie or push with a win in a two team teaser, your wager is refunded.

A tie or push in a three to six team teaser will reduce the wager to the next lowest level. A 6 team teaser with a push and fives wins becomes a 5 team teaser.

Actionbets has standard teasers and super teasers.

Super teasers give you more points than standard teasers.

Super teasers with a TIE or CANCELLED game are no action.

"If" Bets

“If” Bets allow the customer to make a second wager pending a win on the first selection. “If” Bets must be made on one call, and the second part of the “if” wager can exceed the amount of the first selection. There are two types of “If” wagers, “If Action” and “If-Win-Only”. In an “If Action” wager, the bottom half of the wager will have “Action” on any scenario except a LOSS from the top. In other words, you will have a valid wager in the event that the top part of the “If Action”: Wins, Ties or Cancels. In an “If-Win-Only” wager, the top part of the wager MUST WIN, in order to have action on the bottom half. If it does not WIN, there is no action to the bottom half. You cannot use a spread to a money line or a money line to a spread in this type of wager.

Example:

Dallas Cowboys -5 $110 to win $100
IF (If Action)
Carolina Panthers +4 $110 to win $100

If the Cowboys lose, the wager stops there and is scored a loser -$110; if the Cowboys win +$100 the wager continues to the Panthers wager; if the Panthers win, the wager is a $200 winner; if the Panthers lose the wager becomes a $10 loss.

Reverse Wagers

Reverse wagers are double action IF bets.

Part A:
Cowboys -5 $110 to win $100
IF (win, tie or cancel)
Dolphins -14 $110 to win $100
Part B:
Dolphins -14 $110 to win $100
IF (win, tie or cancel)
Cowboys -5 $110 to win $100

+400

One win, one loss

-120

Both teams lose

-220

One Pushes

+200

In the event of a PUSH on one side and a loss on the other, you would have double action on the other side of the wager. For example, the Dolphins win the game by 14 points (A PUSH) but the Cowboys do not win by 5 or more points, the wager would result in a total loss of -220 because the Cowboys would lose twice due to the PUSH.

Circled Games
  • CIRCLED games are not allowed in hook-ups. This means straight wagers only.
  • You cannot buy points on a CIRCLED game.
  • The reason a game is put into a CIRCLE is due to an unknown status of a key player or players. Once the information about the player or players is released, we will release the CIRCLE allowing normal wagering to resume.
