What are the easiest bets to win?
Super Heinz The 'Super Heinz' bet requires the bettor to pick 7 selections, which results in a total of 120 bets overall within this bet type. The 120 bets within a Super Heinz are as follows; 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 four-fold accumulators, 21 five-fold accumulators, 7 six-fold accumulators and 1 seven-fold accumulator.
A goliath bet is an expansive form of multiple bet. A multiple bet allows punters to make a range of different selections or bets in a bundle. As already mentioned, some multiple bets are quite small: double bets and treble bets ask the bettor to make just two and three selections respectively.
A Yankee consists of 11 bets of equal value on selections in four separate events: six doubles, four trebles and one four-fold. We explain how a Yankee works as well as the benefits and drawbacks of this type of bet. In a Yankee at least two of the selections must be successful to guarantee a return.
An 'Octopus' involves a player who scores a touchdown and immediately scores a two-point conversion, therefore, accumulating 8 points. This Yes or No bet depends on any player achieving such a feat. Passing touchdowns are credited to the Receiver, not the Passer, according to Bovada.
The fire bet is a wager the shooter will make at least four different points on the pass line before sevening out. They have to be different numbers — the shooter could make four 6s in a row, and that would count as only one number. As craps players know, there are six potential point numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10.
A Horn or craps-11 bet, as it is typically called, is a one-roll wager that on the next roll of the dice their sum will be 2, 3, 11 or 12. If they total anything different (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10), you lose. If 3 or 11 appears, you are paid 15:1. If 2 or 12 rolls, the payoff is 30:1.
