Bodog Variety of Wagers
There are many different types of wagers offered from the Bodog Sportsbook. Below is a list and brief explanation of each:
A single or straight bet is a wager on the outcome of a single event or game. Depending on the type of line you select, winning the bet is determined by the outright winner, the point spread, or the combined scores of both teams involved in the event.
The same as a single bet, bettors can place up to 20 different single bets at the same time.
A parlay, or combo bet, is a selection of two to twelve wagers that are linked together. Winning the bet is dependent on all of the wagers winning. If even one of the wagers loses, the entire parlay loses. Adding more wagers, or teams, to your parlay increases your potential payout. With more risk, there's also more reward.
The same rules as a typical parlay bet using wagers from different sports.
A teaser is a combination of two to ten football or basketball wagers in which you adjust the point spreads and/or totals in your favor in exchange for a lower payout. When your teaser includes a point spread, you can decrease the spread for the favorite or, conversely, increase the spread for the underdog. When it includes a total, you can increase the "under" or decrease the "over." Like a parlay, winning the bet is dependent on all of the wagers winning.
A sweetheart teaser is a special teaser that combines either three or four football or basketball wagers.
When you combine football and basketball lines in the same teaser, the number of points that you adjust point spreads and/or totals by must remain in the same category.
Like a parlay, an 'if' bet links together two straight bets. However, instead of winning the bet being dependent on both of the bets winning, progressing of the second bet is dependent on the first bet winning. If the first bet wins, the second bet is placed. If the first bet loses, the second bet isn't placed. With this type of bet you can increase your betting power while limiting your risk.
When you place a reverse bet, two "Action" 'if' bets are placed for you - one in the original order and the other in reverse order.
A round robin is a convenient way to create multiple parlays at one time. You can select between three and eight lines and then combine them in parlays of two to six teams. The advantage is that generally you need to hit on only one winning combination to make your money back for the entire round robin.
Bodog Juice Details
Typical juice at Bodog is -110 on all single-bet wagers. Players can find -105 lines at the expense of the other side of the wager. For those new to sportsbetting, the juice is much like the rake in poker. In order to win $100 on a bet a person must risk $110 of their own.
Bodog Bonus and Promotions
There are not many promotions run by the Bodog Sportsbook. The 100% up to $100 first deposit cash bonus is a nice perk as the money is instantly available to the user. However, in order to cash out the bonus amount must be rolled over at least three times. Bodog also employs a 20% refer-a-friend bonus.
Bodog Customer Service
takes great pride in its customer service. There are a variety of contact methods including an in-site email, multiple phone numbers, and external email addresses. The support staff runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
