Single Bets

The most basic type of bet you can place on most sporting events is a Single Bet, and when placing such a bet you must pick one of the outcomes that are being offered to you at a betting site.

You will be able to take the odds being offered at the time of you placing such a bet, for example on one team winning a football or Baseball match, and if your chosen team wins then you are paid out at the odds you took when placing your Single Bet based on the stake you placed on that bet.

When betting on horses or greyhounds however, you can take the odds offered to you at the time of placing such a bet or opt to take the Starting Price instead.

The S.P. or Staring Price as it is known will be announced after the race is run, and that will be the average odds being offered by bookmakers based at a racecourse or race-track at the time the race begun, and could be higher or lower than the odds you took obviously.
