If Bets

If Bets are a great way to manage your bankroll. By protecting yourself from hitting a cold streak while still picking more than one game, if bets might be just the wager you’re looking for.

 

How if Bets Work

If bets are easy to make. Start by picking two or more bets you like. The bets can be on point spreads, overs, money lines, or any other type of bet, and they can be on different sports and values.

Let’s say, for example, that you like the Los Angeles Lakers to beat the Miami Heat.

In the meantime, you want to pick the New York Knicks to shoot well against Boston Celtics and to cover +6.5 against the Miami Heat.

An if bet on those lines might look like this:

Los Angeles Lakers 1.90 at Miami Heat 1.90

New York Knicks (-6.5) at New York Knicks (+6.5)

An if bet on these lines puts the two bets in a causal sequence. The first bet must win in order for your wager on the second game to count. If the first bet loses, the second bet has no action.

Let's say your if bet is for €10, and the Lakers come out and win. That bet wins €9.00, and in an if bet, another €10 is automatically wagered on the next game in your bet, the Knicks to cover +6.5.

Alternatively, let’s say the Heat is winning against the Lakers. In that case, the if bet structure protects you from a second bet – your first bet loses, and the second game is never wagered on.

The if bet essentially creates a waterfall effect of bets, if each consecutive bet is successful. Once there is a loss, the sequence is over.

 

The Difference Between if Bets and Parlays

 

The other element of if bets to keep in mind is that, unlike parlays, winning payouts are not subject to a multiplier. In a successful parlay bet on these two games, a €10 wager would pay out €26. With an if bet on these two lines, a €10 bet would pay €18.

The difference is that if bets protect you from a second loss and a parlay - though it has the potential for a bigger payout - is busted if either game doesn’t work out. In the meantime, in an if bet, if the Lakers win but the Celtics come out and trounce so that New York can’t cover +6, the total bet counts as a net 1€ loss.

You will have a second option on an if bet - Multiply stake.

In this scenario, you will be able to stake everything on the next selection if your previous one is winning. If the Lakers won you will get 19€, on the second selection you are proceeding with a 19€ stake so that if they win you will get 36.1€. 

If your first selection is void in Multiply stake, your second selection will not be placed with 19€ but with 10€ (the stake that you placed or the amount of money that you have won from the previous selection), just because the first event is postponed or voided.

If there is a selection with a status void you are continuing to the next one. If you have an if bet with 4 selections and let’s say the third one is void but the first and the second ones are winning you are continuing to the fourth one. We are not voiding your bet, but just the selection. You can continue with the following statuses - Win, Half-Win, Void, and Half Loss. If there is a loss this is the end of the If bet

You can pick events within a starting hour less than 168 hours (7 days) for regular markets and 336 hours (14 days) for outright wagers.

You can manage and arrange your selection in mixed types. It is not necessary to sort them by dates that is the advantage of playing an if bet. You can choose your first selection to be after 3 days and the second one for today. If the second one is winning you just need to wait for the result from the first event. If it is a winning one you will be paid for both selections. If the first one is a loss you are not proceeding to the next one (doesn't matter that it is already won).

You can rearrange your If bet in the bet slip, so that you should not delete all your selections and reorder them. There is a button which you can use to do that.

 

Asian Handicap
expand_more

Asian handicap (it owes its name to its Eastern origins) is a term, used in gambling to name a type of bet in football that has acquired popularity through time. The handicaps cover bets from a quarter goal to several goals. It reveals what it seems to be a less of a dicey type of bet, in comparison to the well-known "win-draw-win" style of betting. If a competitor is by chance known to be superior to another, the weaker one is given a head start, which is joined to the actual result. An Asian handicap consists of: the handicap line, which relates to the term of the bet, and the moneyline, which is the amount to be paid out offered on each team for the given handicap line - to a unit stake of one.
