Official Betting

Official betting is a type of wagering where you place your bets on specific events and outcomes in sports games. This can be done on a variety of online sites that offer sports betting. These sites usually have a variety of betting options such as point spreads, moneyline bets, totals, futures, prop bets and parlays. The best way to choose a site is to research each one thoroughly. You can also check user reviews of each site, but don’t take these for gospel. What may be a positive for someone else could be a negative to you.

MLB Rules on Betting

Major League Baseball’s anti-gambling rules are outlined in their collective bargaining agreement, which states that players, managers and other employees are prohibited from placing bets on any baseball game. This rule is publicized in dugouts and also includes a statement that anyone who makes a bet on a game he or she has a duty to perform in can be permanently banned from the sport.

NHL Rules on Betting

The NHL does not have a specific policy on where or when players can bet, but they must sign a statement acknowledging the league’s gambling rules as part of their contract. They are also not allowed to bet on NHL games while at team or league facilities or when on the road with their teams. The NHL does work with regulators, sportsbooks and independent integrity monitors to ensure that its rules are being followed.
