Make sure to check out our entire “Sports Betting 101” series where our team of Vegas handicappers help those new to sports betting understand how sports betting works, learn common sports gambling terms and even how to place a bet at a sportsbook and look like a professional.

Welcome to WagerTalk. I’m sitting next to the man, the myth, the legend, Teddy Covers. He and I are going to be talking about today a little bit of sports betting 101. This is a video for you brand new bettors out there. We are going to do some really basic stuff. Teddy, my first question for you. What does minus 110 even mean when placing a sports wager?

Minus 110 is a very simple concept, and yet for beginning bettors sometimes it’s very difficult. I know for me it was. When I first came to Las Vegas, 11 to win 10, what does that mean? It’s real simple. The books get a cut of losing wagers. So every time you bet at the standard juice, you’re going to lay $11, you get 10 back. When you lose, you lose 11. When you win, you win 10. You bet 110 to win 100. You bet 1,100 to win 1,000. The ratio stays the same throughout, but that’s the basic concept of 11 to 10. So if you’re going to beat sports betting over the long term, you’re going to have to be able to withstand the juice, overcome the juice, and have a winning percentage that allows you to make money despite the fact that throughout the process, you will always be laying 11 to 10 when it comes to point spreads.

  1. This is just superb, I have been researching “how to sports bet in las vegas” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Keton Jenackenzie Equalizer – (search on google ) ? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cousin got great results with it.

  2. It’s annoying how these people bitch about newbies. Not everybody is addicted to gambling they just wanna try it out.

  3. My state does not have online betting, yet (hopeful). Can I open an online betting account with a casino in NV/NJ that offers it?

  4. If you are only betting $110 you would be better off just betting online. Much more convenient process.
