Choose your betting types

The best IPL betting websites allow you to bet on more than a dozen types of bets. Some of them are suitable for beginners. Others, like doubles bets, are best left to the experts:

  • Moneyline.
  • Handicaps / spreads.
  • Expresses.
  • General information.
  • Props.

Moneyline bets involve predicting the winner of a match. They are beginner-friendly because all you have to do is pick the winner of the game. But don't let that fool you - constantly predicting moneyline bets is easier said than done.

Handicaps are the types of bets in which you predict how many wickets a team will win or lose in a game. Let's say you think the Indians can beat the Royals by three wickets in an IPL game. This type of bet can bring you more money than just predicting that Mumbai will beat the royal family.

Predicting expresses is even more difficult - you combine multiple predictions into a single betting slip. The advantage is that you can significantly increase your profits. The risk is that one wrong prediction will result in a loss.
