What sports bet types are available?

Gone are the days of simply betting on which team is going to win a match. At William Hill we endeavour to provide the most betting markets over Australian and International sporting events. Below are some of our more popular bet types we offer:


Single

William Hill accepts single bets on all events on which markets are framed. Examples of single bets include backing a team to win the AFL Premiership, backing a player to score the most runs in an innings of cricket, or backing a team to win a game of ice hockey.


Margin

A form of betting requiring the punter to pick the winning margin. For example:

  • Australian Football: 1-39, 40+ and Draw
  • Rugby League & Union: 1-12, 13+ and Draw
  • Basketball: 1-10 and 11+

Where the draw option is offered (Australian Football, Rugby League & Union), margin betting will exclude any extra time that might be played.

An example of a bet would be if you think your team will win easily, then back them to win 13+ or 40+. If you think the match will be close, take the 1-12, 1-39, or the draw.


Line

A form of betting where a match is handicapped by the bookmaker. For example, if one side is considered a 4.5 point better side than their opponent, you would be able to back this side to win by more than 4.5 points, or you can back their opponent to lose by no more than 4.5 points or win the match.


Multi/All Up

Also known as a parlay, an all-up, an accumulator or a multi-bet. In sports, a multi-bet involves picking between two (2) and twenty (20) selections or legs. The odds for each selection or leg are multiplied. For example, if a Multi-bet was placed on:

  • NRL – Sydney Roosters to win the NRL Premiership at $3
  • AFL – Hawthorn Hawks to win the AFL Premiership at $5
  • Basketball US – Golden State Warriors to win the NBA Championship at $10

The total dividend would be $150.00. (3.00 × 5.00 × 10.00).If a $10 wager were to be placed on this Multi Bet, and each of the legs were successful, the payout would be $1500 (including your stake) for a profit of $1490.


Parlays

To simplify the placing of multi-bets, a number of set combinations called Parlays have evolved over time and these are summarised below. Each Parlay has a set number of selections or legs, and when you select a Parlay you are choosing all possible combinations of multi-bets for that number of selections or legs. In addition, some Parlays, also include single bets on each selection or leg.

The key advantage of a Parlay over a standard multi is that if some of your selections or legs are successful then you will still win a dividend based upon how many successful combinations you chose.
