What Is Official Betting?

Official betting is a form of sports gambling that involves wagering on official game outcomes. It’s legal in some states and is regulated by state law. However, it’s not legal in all states, and some rules may change over time.

Betting on official games is legal in several states, including Nevada, Delaware, Oregon, and Montana. But it’s illegal in many others. In the US, betting on a match or event in which the referee has been paid to fix the outcome is illegal. This includes betting on the outcome of any match, but it also applies to wagers on events within a match.

League Data & Betting Odds

Official data is the term used to describe statistics, results, and other information about a sporting event obtained through an agreement with the governing body of a sport or league. It’s a hot topic in the sports betting industry, as leagues seek to control what data they’re required to provide licensees and how much they’ll charge for it.

In-Game Bets – Live in Game betting is the most popular way to place wagers on a live game. It’s similar to pre-game betting, but odds fluctuate during the game and you can place a live bet on any outcome of the game.

Run Totals – These are bets on the number of runs scored in a game. They are offered in a variety of formats, including first-quarter Over/Under lines and halftime Over/Under lines.
