  • Moneyline: Bet on the winner of a game.
  • Totals: Bet on the amount of points scored in a game.
  • Futures: Bet on future events, like who will win the Super Bowl.
  • Propositions: Betting on whether an outcome will or will not happen in a game, often on a player performance.
  • Parlays: Putting together multiple bets for an increased payout if they are all correct wagers.
  • In-game wagering: Bet on games while they are going on.
