Every so often, a revolution comes to the betting world. In the 1990s, it was Asian handicaps, which took the draw out of play. Now, PointsBet with Points Betting system has come up with a new way to bet on sporting contests, and the site is blowing up because of it.
From the Points Bet website, this is a description of what points betting is:
“If your bet wins by one point (or unit), you would win 1 x your bet amount (stake).
If your bet wins by 2 units, you win 2 x stake. If your bet wins by 10 units, you win 10 x stake. Conversely, if you lose by 1 unit, you would lose 1 x stake. Lose by 10 units, lose 10 x stake.”
Here is an example of Points Betting that will explain the system:
- In a college basketball game next fall, UNC will take on Kentucky, and the over/under the line will be set at 160.
- If you take the over 160 for $20, and the game ends up 91-89 to UNC with total points of 180, you win $20 for every point over 160 the total, for a total win of $400.
- Conversely, if UNC won the game 75-70, for a total of 145, you would lose $20 for every point under 160, for a total loss of $300.
High risk, high reward.
Are there any Points Betting systems and strategies?
There are also bets you can make based against times of certain outcomes happening. In an NBA game, it might be the time in seconds of the first field goal made. In soccer, it could be the time of the first goal. You can place wagers against the times: for example, if you think Manchester City will score early, you can bet on the first goal t be scored in a certain time, and any minutes lower than that number will add to your winnings.
When you place a wager on the site, Points Bet makes sure to withhold a certain amount of money from your account, so as to protect against large losses from multiple wagers.
There is the opportunity to cap your losses on any bet, but that will also shorten your winnings.
For people that like proposition betting, and also a chance to win more money with higher stakes, points betting with Points Bet is the way to go.
