Sport betting FAQ

The following are some of our frequently asked questions with regard to online betting and sport betting.

Is online betting legal in India? 

Yes, online betting is absolutely legal in India. While the Indian government prohibits offline betting and gambling and deems them as punishable offenses that amounts to fine or imprisonment or both (except in the case of horse racing or lotteries, where the traditional betting format is legal), there are no laws regulating online betting for sports. This is why there are so many apps and websites for sports and money betting in the market.

How to win in sports betting?

There is no sure way of winning when it comes to sport betting. You can, however, increase your chances of winning by researching the sport and the players. It’s important to know which sportsman is consistent and which tournament attracts the most bettors. With Spin sports, you can also avail amazing features like the in-play feature, which enables you to bet on or adjust your bets on a live match.

How sports betting works? 

Sports betting works as a simple bet or a gamble that you place on a sporting event. Sport betting is done by placing your bets on a player’s performance or on the total of a match score and winning money if your prediction comes true.

To further explain how sports betting is done, let’s take for example a game of cricket. Before the tournament takes place, sportsbooks will establish markets on different outcomes that could take place in a match. Bookmakers set odds long before the sports event takes place. You put stake money on the event or market, and wait till the game is finished to see if you’ve won or lost. If you win, the stake money is multiplied by the odds placed and the money made minus your initial stake is your profit!

How to understand odds in sports betting?

To place bets on a sports event, you will first have to understand the odds established by a bookmaker or a sportsbook. Primarily, odds are displayed in three typical formats:

American (+/-), Decimal,and Fractional.

American odds are of the plus/minus format. These odds are popular in the United States. The favourite odds are shown with a minus (-) sign that indicates the amount you have to wage to win $100, while the underdog odds are shown with a plus (+) sign, that indicates the amount you won for the $100 that you waged.

Fractional (British) odds are when you see two numbers separated by a slash. From this fraction, you can predict and calculate the probability of a given event. The probability is calculated from simple formula: Probability = B/ (A+B) For example;

¼ will be calculated as 4/ (4+1) = 0.80 which means there is a 80% probability of the event happening.

4/1 will be calculated as 1/ (4+1) = 0.20 which means there is a 20% probability of the event happening

Decimal (European) odds are a simple alternative of the fractional format and are commonly easier to understand. While decimals are more common in exchanges, most betting websites do give you the option to view odds in the decimal format. The formula for the decimal format is as follows:

Winnings = (Odds x stake) - stake. For example:

4.0 will be calculated as (4.0 x $10 stake) - $10 = $30 winnings

8.0 will be calculated as (8.0 x $10 stake) - $10 = $70 winnings

Ultimately, all three types of odds are legit, and it is only a matter of preference, when you opt for betting odds you are comfortable with. Spin sports offers all three types of betting odds so you can opt for whichever you understand best!
