The bettors choose over and under the total number of scores predicted by the bookmakers. It is generally found that high scoring games can hover over the number 50, while the low-scoring games are pegged at 35.0 points.

- Point spread
This is believed to be the king of betting options. The bettors surrender -4.0 points for the favorite teams while the underdogs are given +4.0.

Similarly, when bet is on the underdog, the team must either win straight or lose by the margin equal to the points allotted by the bettor.

There can be four-fold and onwards bet sizes available on parlays. The main aim of the parlay is to increase the payout. The only catch is that all the bets clubbed in the parlay should be won.
- Props bets
These are the bets largely based on the research made on the performance of the teams. The bettors are placing bet on the predictions made about the match, such as whether the match will be a clean scoreboard, or which team will score a goal first, the type of goal – turnover, touchdown or field goal – that the team will score first time, which player will score the goal first and so on. All the betting possibilities arising from the statistics can be included in the propositions bets or prop bets.
