WHAT IS MONEYLINE BETTING?
A Moneyline bet is a wager placed on a team to win the game outright. Bettors are required to pay a premium to wager on the better team in a given matchup. Conversely, a bet on the worse team is incentivized by higher potential returns.
For example, if Team X is a -300 favorite on the moneyline, a bettor would have to wager $3 in order to earn a profit of $1 (for a total return of $4 — original stake plus winnings). On the other hand, if Team X is a +300 underdog on the moneyline, the same $3 bet would result in a $9 profit (for a total return of $12 when factoring in the $3 stake).
