Online sports betting is legal in Pennsylvania, so getting to know how to use an online sportsbook can be helpful. The BetMGM sportsbook is an intuitive platform that makes it easy to place bets.

The more you familiarize yourself with it, the quicker you can get started.

Here’s a breakdown of our Pennsylvania sportsbook and what you should know about placing bets.

Get to Know the Different Ways to Bet

There are several different bets that you can place when you’re looking to wager on a sporting event.

If you’re brand new to sports betting, it’s essential to know some of your options. A few of the main bets that people make are money lines, spread bets, parlays, prop bets, and futures.

A money line bet is a bet on a team or athlete that you think will win. With a spread bet, the party you bet on has to win by a certain number of points, known as the spread.

When you familiarize yourself with the various betting possibilities, it’s easier for you to make informed decisions.

Check Out the Different Sports and Teams You Can Bet On

The BetMGM sportsbook lets you easily place bets on the NFL, NBA, MLB, and more, including local teams like the Philadelphia 76ers, Eagles, Flyers, and Phillies. You’ll also be able to bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins.

What’s more, you can also bet on college sports if you fancy Penn State football or Villanova basketball.

This is excellent news for die-hard Pennsylvania sports fans. There’s never a dull moment when it comes to sports betting.

Check out the Pennsylvania section of BetMGM to read up on bets involving these and several other teams in the state.

Learn About Odds and Familiarize Yourself With the Platform

When you comb through the bets each week, you’ll get a breakdown of the odds as laid out by BetMGM. Regardless of the score, there’ll be money line odds that dictate which team is favored to win.

A favored team will have negative odds listed, such as -250, while an underdog will have a positive number, like +1500.

A spread of -250 means that you have to bet $250 to win $100. Meanwhile, with a heavy underdog, putting down $100 could win $1,500 if the odds are +1500.

Make sure that you familiarize yourself with the platform so you always understand the odds and how to place whatever bet you’d like.
