Lorenzo believes the Patriots defense will make it a long day for Josh Allen and the Bills, and is locking in the Patriots +2.5. Another hot AFC East team, the Miami Dolphins have won four straight games. Tua Tagovailoa has gotten the ball out quickly and Jaden Waddle broke out in Week 12 as a result. Miami is a great under the radar home field advantage team in the NFL. While the Giants have shown improvement, the Dolphins are 12-4 against the spread in their last 16 home games. Lorenzo is locking in Miami -3.5. The San Francisco 49ers have won four of their last five games. Meanwhile, Seattle has gone the opposite direction, and have dropped five of their last six.

If you want to bet on an event with an outcome that will not be known for some time, you are going to be looking at a futures market. A futures market can encompass almost anything. At Tipico, you can bet into a futures market on the eventual champion of any major sports league. You can also do the same with the eventual winner of any major piece of hardware, from Rookie of the Year to Most Valuable Player. Even betting the winner of an upcoming golf, college basketball, or tennis tournament is considered a futures bet. The big thing to remember is that a futures market is basically any betting market that lasts longer than a single game. If you are betting on the World Cup champion before the first game is played, that would take place in a futures market. If you are betting on the champion when it is down to two remaining teams the day of the final game, you are probably not betting into a futures market.
A moneyline is a set of sports betting odds in which you bet on one side to simply win outright. There are negative and positive numbers when it comes to moneylines. It’s possible that both teams could have a negative number, but that is more the exception than the rule. Most of the time one team will have a negative number and one team will have a plus sign in front of their number. The team with the (-) is the favorite in that case and the team with the (+) is the underdog.
The Browns and Patriots both enter Sunday's matchup with the same record, 5-4. The Patriots ride a three game win-streak into Sunday. Can the Browns win without Nick Chubb? Patriots beat reporter Mark Daniels has the latest on Mac Jones and the Patriots.

The Browns will play their first game without star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The Patriots enter Sunday favored by 2.5 points.
A parlay is a bet that combines two or more outcomes that are available to bet on separately. If all of the outcomes you choose turn out to be correct, then you win the bet. If even one of those outcomes turns out to be wrong, you lose the bet. It is an all or nothing proposition. You can successfully pick the first five games right on a 6-team parlay card, but if you get the final one wrong, you lose. Whether you lose the first or last game on your card makes no difference. In order to hit the payout, you have to get every outcome right.
Live in-game betting gives you the opportunity to bet live when games are in action. At any point during any sporting event the books will calculate the potential chance of an event happening and then offer odds on that outcome. They will recalculate those probabilities over and over again with adjustments made for positive and negative occurrences on the preceding play. Sometimes the last play does not change the price being offered. Other times it could be a drastic change. For example, the odds will move massively in the direction of the defense that just recorded a pick six on the previous play. It might move very little when it goes from a 3-0 to a 3-1 count in baseball.
The first thing we want to do is discuss what hedging is. Hedging is a tool that gamblers use to either limit their downside or guarantee themselves a small profit regardless of the outcome. In order to hedge, you need to have a futures bet where the team is still alive in the playoffs to cash it. At the start of any season, every team is theoretically alive to win a championship. Every team is available to bet on early in a season, from favorites to longshots. As the season goes on, the odds change based on how well or how poorly a team is playing. Some teams are eliminated from contention, which makes the potential pool of winning teams smaller. Every series of the playoffs, we have one team move on and one team go home. That means every round the number of potential winners gets cut in half, and as teams get closer to winning the prize, the odds continue to dwindle. A team that was 20-1 to start a season may only be 5-1 if they are one of the last four teams remaining. Unless they win it all though, you do not get paid on the 20-1 ticket you were holding from the start of the year, nor the 5-1 you could get betting on them closer to the title game. If that 20-1 team does end up making it to the finals and you are holding a ticket, you now have some options. If they are favored to win the championship now, you could see a situation where you are holding a 20-1 ticket and now have an opportunity to bet some amount on the other team that guarantees that in the worst case you break even or make money no matter who wins. This bet taking the opposite side of your original play is what gamblers call hedging.
