Pointspread & Over/Under Wagers

GTBets.eu is proud to offer pointspread and over/under betting on basketball to our online members. On a pointspread wager, the team wagered must win by the pointspread. On an over/under wager, the total points of the contest by both teams, overtime included, must fall over or under the side selected.

Example

The posted line is the L.A. Lakers -10 at Portland Trailblazers +10 and the over/under total is 189.

The odds are $1.10 to win $1.00 (-110) unless otherwise indicated.

For the player who wagers on the Lakers -10, they must win by more than 10 points for this to be a winning wager. For the player who wagers on Portland +10, they must either win the game, or lose by less than 10 points for this to be a winning wager. If the outcome falls on the number, either way, the bet is declared a "Push", and the original stake is refunded.

For the player who wagers on the total points of this contest by both teams to be "Over" 189, the combined final score of both teams must exceed 189. For the player who wagers on the total points of this contest by both teams to be "Under" 189, the combined final score of both teams must be less than 189. If the outcome falls on the number, the bet is declared a "Push", and the original stake is refunded.
Pointspread and Over/Under lines will be offered on all NBA, WNBA and NCAA contests.
All wagers on the side & total will include all overtime scoring.

Halftime Wagers

GTbets.eu is proud to offer halftime wagering on basketball to our online members. Halftime wagering is simply a wager only on the score of the first, or second half of a contest. The line offered will be a pointspread, a moneyline, or a combination of the two, but the wager applies only to the score of the halftime period specified.

  • First half lines will be offered on all NBA and NCAA contests.
  • Second half lines will be offered on all NBA and the majority of NCAA contests, and will be offered within 5 minutes of the end of the first half of the contest.
  • Wagers may be parlayed to other contests, but a first half wager may not be parlayed to any other wager from the same game.
  • No teaser plays or buying of points is allowed on Halftime Wagers.
  • Overtime periods are included as part of the second half.
  • The full half (first or second) must be completed for action.

Quarter Wagers

GTbets.eu is proud to offer wagering on individual quarters of selected contests on basketball to our online members. Wagering on quarters is simply a wager only on the score of the first, second, third or fourth quarter of a contest. These lines will be offered on marquee events, such as playoff and championship games. The line offered will be a pointspread, a moneyline, or a combination of the two, but the wager applies only to the score of the quarter specified.

  • Overtime scoring is not included in Fourth Quarter wagers.

Moneyline Wagers

GTbets.eu is proud to offer moneyline wagering on basketball to our online members. Moneyline Wagering is simply wagering on the contest based on a given price rather than a pointspread. The team wagered on just has to win the game.

Example

A player could choose one of two wagers on the following matchup: L.A. Lakers -200 at Portland Trailblazers +180. If the Lakers win, the player laid $200.00 to win $100.00. If Portland wins, the player who bet $100.00 wins $180.00.

  • Moneylines will be offered on most NBA and NCAA contests.
  • Moneyline wagers may be parlayed to other contests, but a moneyline wager may not be parlayed to any other wager from the same game.

Point Buying

GTbets.eu is proud to offer Point Buys. This is a method of allowing the bettor to improve the pointspread of a basketball contest by actually "buying points" for the team he/she wants to wager, side or total. Bettors can buy points in 1/2 point increments up to 3 points, depending on the contest. Each 1/2 point costs the bettor an additional 10% vigorish.

Example

The L.A. Lakers are playing the Portland Trailblazers, and the line on the game is the Lakers -10, with a total of 189. If a $100 wager is placed on the Lakers -10 with a 1/2 point buy, the player has a wager on the Lakers -9 1/2 points, and must put up $120 to win $100, instead of the usual $110 to win $100. If the player, for example, requests a full 1 point buy to move the pointspread down to -9, he/she would have to put up $130 to win $100.

Conversely, the bettor may also buy points on the Trailblazers side, and get the line at plus 10 1/2 or 11 points, with the same increase in vigorish.

Bettors may also buy points for basketball totals. In this particular game, bettors could buy an "over" wager with a maximum line move down to 188, or an "under" wager with a maximum line move up to 190.

  • Point Buying up to a maximum of 3 points will be offered on all NBA and NCAA contests.
  • Point Buying will not be offered on halftime, quarter or moneyline wagers.

Point Selling

GTbets.eu is proud to offer point sells. This is a method of allowing the bettor to improve the moneyline in conjunction with the point spread. If you have a strong feeling lay an extra point, get a better price and make even more money. Bettors can sell points in 1/2 point increments, up to 1 point, depending on the contest. Varying vigorish is rewarded for every 1/2 point sold.

Proposition Wagers

GTbets.eu offers a wide variety of proposition wagers. Because these wagers deserve special explanation, we have dedicated an entire section for this. Please click the link at the top of this window labeled "Props" for complete details.
