Halftime lines allow you to bet on the first or second half of basketball and football games. Halftime betting rules are as follows:
- Halftime bets are calculated the same as straight bets unless otherwise indicated.
- Halftime bets must go the full half for action.
- Overtime is included as part of the second half. Buying Points
Buying points allows you to improve the Point Spread or Totals odds of a football or basketball contest by actually buying points for the team you want to wager on.
You can buy points to your advantage on the sports of football and basketball. Points can be bought on the side or on the total. Each half point costs you an additional 10 cents to the dollar. Buying onto or off of the point spread of 3, in football only, costs 20 cents to the dollar (instead of 10 cents).
