How does PointsBetting work?
Other than a long list of traditional types of bets, with fixed odds, the PointsBet app offers so much more. There are a lot of educational materials on their website, including videos where Darrelle Revis himself, a famous NFL player, explaining how does PointsBetting work.
PointsBet advertises the system as “the more correct the prediction, the higher the winning”. So, if the team you are betting on wins by more points than predicted in the spread, you will get a higher winning. However, if they win by fewer points, you will carry losses. The loss will be your stake multiplied by the difference between points predicted and the actual result.
Different markets will have different multipliers. And if you are not prone to taking unlimited risks, there are ways to curtail possible losses. One of them is Stop Loss. You chose your multiplier, that way you can set the maximum amount lost. However, it also means your maximum win will have limits too.
Also, you can limit the risk by picking for your bet a more predictable market. PointsBet app help section suggest soccer as an example of “market which exhibits low volatility”. In other words, it doesn’t happen often that soccer games end with more than seven goals.
