How to Bet on the Bears vs. Rams Odds
Both teams have dominant defenses and a recent change of quarterbacks. It comes down to which team deals a better offense to determine who will win.
Bettors placing their bets on either the Bears or the Rams for their NFL Week playoffs have the following options:
Moneyline – This represents a cash amount to be won. Favored teams have negative numbers, like -6.5, while underdogs have positive numbers, like +5.5. Odds of -150 mean bettors have to bet $150 to win $100. If the odds for the Bears are at +200, you can win $200 for every $100 staked.
Point spread – This is betting by the point difference between teams. If you bet on the Rams spread at -6, for example, you win if they score 6 points more than the Bears.
Over/under – The final score of both teams are combined. Players bet if the score is over or under a certain number. If the O/U is 45 and the total score is 42, those who bet on “under” win.
In-play and live betting – Bettors cast their bets even as betting odds fluctuate while the match progresses. Bettors not attending the event in person can be updated through podcasts or bet through online sportsbooks like SportsBetting.com.
Parlays and teasers – You can bet on two or more selections in different events. Your initial stake and winnings are reinvested in the next game. If one bet loses, you lose the entire parlay.
