When it comes to betting options at Tennessee online sportsbooks, you will find that the available wagering types will vary by operator. While most Tennessee betting sites feature your traditional betting options (spread, moneyline, over/under), others will carry exclusive betting types like the Same-Game Parlay+ at FanDuel Sportsbook Tennessee.
Below are some of the most popular betting options you will find at the best online Tennessee sportsbooks.
When betting a spread, you are wagering on one side's margin of victory or defeat against its opponent. When you make spread bets, the favorite will be given a points handicap while the underdog gets points.
For example, if the Tennessee Titans are favored by 2.5 points when facing the Houston Texans, the spread will read like this:
- Tennessee Titans -2.5 (-110) vs. Houston Texans +2.5 (-110)
To win against the spread bet, the team you bet on must cover the spread.
In the example above, the Titans would win the bet and cover the spread if they won by at least three points. On the other hand, if the Texans won the game outright or lost by less than two points, then they would win the bet.
The most basic type of bet that you can make at Tennessee betting sites are moneyline bets. When you bet a moneyline, there are no points involved or spreads to cover. You are just picking the winner of a contest. Simply put, the side you bet on must win the game outright for your ticket to settle as a winner.
For example, if you bet on the Nashville Predators to defeat the New York Rangers in an NHL game, the Predators must win the game for you to win the bet. The number of goals Nashville wins by does not come into play here. Tennessee sportsbooks offer the top NHL betting sites in the industry.
When you bet on game totals, you are betting on the combined number of points, goals, or runs scored in a game.
Here is an example. If the total of the Titans vs. Texans game is set at 40.5 points, you can bet the matchup to go over or under that total with -110 odds on both sides. Those odds are standard for over/under total bets.
If you bet on the over, the total combined points would need to be at least 41 to win your bet. However, if you took the under, the total number of points scored would be less than 41 for you to win.
Team and Player Prop Bets
Prop bets are wagers that have no correlation to the final score of a game. They are instead tied to an individual outcome during a game.
The most common prop bets that you will find at Tennessee betting sites are NFL player props, team props, and game props.
NFL player props are focused on an individual player's performance in a distinct statistical category.
- Derrick Henry over/under 95.5 rushing yards -- Over (-110) | Under (-110)
Team props are centered around an individual team's outcome during a game.
- Will the Predators score over/under 3.5 team goals? -- Over (-110) | Under (-110)
Game props are correlated to a unique outcome during a game.
- Will the Predators score a power-play goal? -- Yes (-200) | No (+180)
With futures betting, you are wagering on the future outcome of a sporting event, league award, or title. This means your bet will not settle until the outcome of the wager you placed is determined, even if it is six months down the road.
Below you will find a few examples of the most common futures bets:
- Super Bowl odds
- NHL Stanley Cup odds
- NFL MVP odds
- Team to make/miss the playoffs
- Over/under team win totals
Betting a parlay involves combining two or more individual bet selections into a single wager. In a parlay, each individual bet selection is referred to as a leg. To win a parlay bet, all of the legs must settle as a win or a tie for your ticket to cash. If even one leg settles as a loss, your entire parlay will be graded as a losing bet.
Here is an example of a parlay bet:
- Titans moneyline (-194)
- Derrick Henry over 105.5 rushing yards (+115)
- Eagles vs. Commanders over 41.5 points (-114)
This 3-leg parlay has +578 odds. If all of the legs settle as wins, you can win $289.49 when you stake $50. If any of the three legs loses, the entire bet is graded as a loss. If you're unsure about parlay pricing, check out our Rotowire parlay calculator.
