A straight bet can be made by choosing a team and the associated point spread. The cost of the bet typically is 10/11, or risk $110 to win $100.
Example: Los Angeles Lakers +7 Phoenix Suns -7.
- If you place a straight bet on the Suns -7, the Suns must win by 8 or more points for your bet to cash.
- If you place a straight bet on the Lakers +7, the Lakers must win, or lose by 6 points or less, for your bet to cash.
- If the Suns win by 7 points, both bets result in a “push” or “no action.” MyBookie will return the risked funds.
