What is A Moneyline or Straight Up Bet? A Moneyline or straight up bet is a wager on which player or team will win the game outright without having to consider any point spread odds. The easiest way to think of straight up bets is that they are odds on who will win the game.
The most basic way to bet on football is a straight bet on the pointspread. When making a straight bet, the team the player bets must cover the pointspread. This means that the favored team must win by a stipulated number of points or the underdog will receive that number of points.
A Single Bet (AKA “Straight Bet”) is exactly what it sounds like: an individual bet made on a single game or event. Your selection must be correct for you to win your bet. Single Bets can be made on any market, be it Moneyline, Point Spread, Over/Under or any Prop Bet.
Straight bet – An individual wager on a game or event that will be determined by a pointspread or money line. Straight-up – Winning the game without any regard to the pointspread; a money-line bet. Take the points – Betting the underdog and receiving its advantage in the pointspread.
