    Betting Board Question

    Alright people, for the past few weeks I have been trying to get my credit count up and have gone all in on multiple games trying to double up my credits, and I have won every time. But for some reason, even though I have been betting thousands of credits on these games, I only receive a fraction of these credits? Help me out...

    KU @ ISU I bet 551 on ISU and didn't won 0
    Houston @ Tulane I bet 20077 on Houston and on 93
    WKU @ LSU I bet 21419 on LSU and one 25
    Minnesota @ Green Bay I bet 21556 on Green Bay and won 2395

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Re: Betting Board Question

    If you're betting on a team to straight out win, without the spread, the payout is only a fraction of the bet. Say a team is a 1/2 (0.5) favorite to right out win, you would win 1 credit for every 2 credits you bet. Say you bet 1,000,000 credits at (0.5) and that team won the game, you would get the 1,000,000 credits back plus 500,000 credits for a total of 1,500,000 credits.

    Underdog teams to right out win are better than a 1 credit payout. Say you bet 1,000,000 credits for Iowa State to right out defeat Oklahoma State at say 6.5/1, would pay out 6,500,000 credits.

    Green Bay was a 1/9 (.11) favorite to right out win the game last night. So take your bet of 21556 * .11 to figure out how many credits you won.

    Okay that makes sense. I'll start betting on more spreads. Thanks!
