Betting Glossary

Accumulator – An Accumulator or Parlay bet is a bet which links two or more wagers together and is dependent on all the wagers winning. The benefit of this is that much higher odds are available than if you made each bet separately. However, if one wager loses, the whole bet loses.

American Odds – A way of expressing the likelihood of an event. This system is common in the United States. See the odds page for more details.

Ante Post – These are bets which are placed a day or more before the event. When you are placing an ante post bet, you assume that your choice will compete in the event. Premier League Winner is an example of an ante post bet.

Arbitrage Betting – When a bettor backs all possible outcomes of an event with different bookies, utilising favourable odds in order to make a guaranteed profit.

Asian Handicap – This is a favourite for punters because it is less risky than traditional betting. It works when one opponent is perceived to be considerably superior to another. The bookmaker gives the weaker side an advantage which is then added to the result actually achieved.

There are two componenets to an Asian Handicap Bet. They are:

1)      The Handicap Line – the terms of the bet.

2)      The Moneyline – the payout offered on each team for the given handicap line.

To explain this further, let’s take a look at some examples:

- Handicap 0 – If your team wins the match then you win. If it’s a draw, your stake is refunded.

- Handicap 0, +0.5 – If your team wins the match then you win. If it’s a draw then your bet is split in half. One half is  considered a win, the other a draw and its stake is refunded.

- Handicap +0.5 – If your team wins or draws the match then you win.

- Handicap +0.5, +1 – If your team wins or draws the match then you win. If your team loses by a goal difference of one, you lose half your stake.

- Handicap +1 – If your team wins or draws the match then you win. If your team loses by a goal difference of one, your stake is refunded.

- Handicap +1, +1.5 – If your team wins or draws the match then you win. If your teams loses by a goal difference of one then your bet is split in half. One half is considered a win, the other a draw and its stake is refunded.

- Handicap +1.5 – If your team wins, draws or loses the match by a goal difference of one then you win.

- Handicap +1.5, +2 – If your team wins, draws or loses the match by a goal difference of one then you win. If your team loses by a goal difference of two then you lose half your stake.

- Handicap +2 – If your team wins, draws or loses the match by a goal difference of one then you win. If your team loses by a goal difference of two then your stake is refunded.

- Hanidcap +2, +2.5 – If your team wins, draws or loses the match by a goal difference of one then you win. If your team loses by a goal difference of two your bet is split in half. One half is considered a win, the other a draw and its stake is refunded.

Bettor – Someone who places a bet. In popular parlance, punter or customer.

Decimal Odds – A way of expressing the likelihood of an event in terms of decimals. This system is commonly used in Europe. See the odds page for more details.

Double Chance – This is a bet which allows you to wager on two or three potential outcomes with the same bet. Examples of this include Half-Time/Full-Time bets.

Drifted– This is where the odds of an event happening have increased because bookies believe it is less likely to occur. For example the odds of Manchester United winning the league have drifted from 3/1 to 4/1. Drifted is also known as lengthened.

Draw/No Draw – This is a bet on whether a game will be a draw or not. Extra-time and penalties are not usually counted in this type of bet.

Each Way Bet – This consists of two separate bets – a win bet and a place bet – and your stake is split evenly between the two. On the win bet, you only win if your choice comes first. On the place bet, you win if your choice finishes in one of the predetermined range of finishing places, usually the top three or four. Each Way Bets are most commonly found in Horse Racing.

Evens – This means if you bet £1, you will win £1 plus get your stake back if the bet is successful. In Fractional Odds it is written as 1/1, in Decimal Odds it is written as 2 and in American Odds it is written as +100 or -100.

Exact Score – This bet is where you predict the score of a game, overtime and penalty shootouts excluded.

Exchanges – These are different to traditional bookmakers as you are betting against other punters rather than the bookmaker themselves. The bookmaker takes a commission from all bets placed. Exchanges offer a peer-to-peer betting service in which lay betting is a viable option.

Favourite – This is the mostly likely outcome of an event according to a bookmaker.

Finishing Position – This is where you bet on which team will finish in the higher position at the end of a specific tournament.

Fractional Odds – A way of expressing the likelihood of an event in terms of fractions. This system is common in the UK and Ireland. See the odds page for more details.

Half-Time/Full-Time – A Double Chance bet in which you bet on the results/scores of a game at half-time and full-time. Both of your choices need to be correct to win. Overtime is excluded.

Handicap – See definition for Asian Handicap. In Horse Racing, it also refers to extra weight laiden on good horses in an attempt to make the field for a race more competitive.

Head 2 Head – This is where you bet that one player will score more goals than another in a specific game.

Highest Half/Quarter – This is where you bet on which half/quarter will have the highest number of goals/points.

In Play Betting – This is betting in real time as the event is taking place. This allows the punter to react to what is happening as the event progresses. In Play betting utilises interactive functions and live audio/video and often generates better odds. When you place an Asian Handicap In Play, the score before the time you make your bet doesn’t influence the result of the bet.

Lengthened – This is where the odds of an event happening have increased because bookies believe it is less likely to occur. For example the odds of Manchester United winning the league have lengthened from 3/1 to 4/1. Lengthened is also known as drifted.

Liability – In lay betting, the liability is the amount you could lose if your bet is unsuccessful. This is different to your stake because in lay betting, you are acting as the bookie and have to pay the winnings to the punter who has made the successful bet. See the Betting Guide for more information.

Moneyline Odds – See American Odds definition.

Multiple Bet – This is where you bet on two or more outcomes with the same bet, combining the odds to win a greater return. However, all bets must come in for a multiple to succeed. See Accumulator definition.

Nap – In Horse Racing, a Nap is the best bet of the day perceived by a bookmaker or racing analyst.

NB – In Horse Racing, an NB is the second best bet of the day perceived by a bookmaker or racing analyst.

Non-runner – In Horse Racing, a non-runner is when a horse does not start a race.

Odd/Even – This is where you bet on whether the number of goals in a match will be an odd or even figure.

Odds – The expression of the likelihood of an event happening. The lower the odds, the greater the chance of an event occurring e.g. an event at 2/1 is more likely to happen than one at 3/1. Odds are written in three forms – Fractional, Decimal and American. See the odds page for more details.

On – This is when your potential winnings will be less than the amount you staked. For example, in Fractional Odds 1/2 is expressed as “2 to 1 on” and means for a £1 stake you will win 50p, as well as getting your £1 stake back.

Outright – This is where you bet on the outcome of a race or tournament. Betting on who will win the Premier League is an example of an Outright market.

Over/Under – This is where you bet on whether the total number of goals/points in a game will be over or under a specified amount.

Parlay Bet – See Accumulator definition.

Place Bet – This is the same as the place part of an Each Way Bet. You win if your choice finishes in one of the predetermined range of finishing places, usually the top three or four. Place bets are most commonly found in Horse Racing.

Scorecast – This is where you bet on the First/Anytime Scorer and the Correct Score in a multiple bet.

Shortened – This is where the odds of an event happening have decreased because bookies believe it is more likely to occur. For example the odds of Manchester United winning the league have shortened from 4/1 to 3/1.

Single Bet – This is the simpliest form of betting – one wager for one event.

Stake – The stake is the amount of money risked when you make a bet – if you win a bet, your stake is returned plus your winnings. If you lose a bet, your stake is not refunded

Spread Betting – Instead of traditional “win/lose” betting, Spread Betting is when a payout is determined by the accuracy of the wager. A Spread is a range of possible outcomes and the bet is whether the outcome will be above or below the Spread. Spread Betting contains a high element of risk.

Three Way Bet – This is a bet on the result of a game from three possible outcomes – win, lose, draw.

Timecast – This is where you bet on the First Goalscorer and the time of the first goal in a multiple bet.

Wager – Another name for bet.

Wincast – This is where you bet on the Team to Win and a First/Anytime Goalscorer in a multiple bet.

Winning Margain – This is a bet on the goal or points difference between two teams at the end of a particular game.

Winnings – The amount of money you win from a successful bet. It is the equivalent of the total money you receive less your initial stake.

For example, if you put placed a £1 bet at odds of 2/1 and win, you will receive £2 winnings plus your £1 stake back.
