Today, the following betting options are most commonly used:

- W1 – victory for the first team, while a draw is not assumed as an outcome, the bet is only on the victory;
- W2 – victory for the second team, while a draw is not assumed as an outcome, the bet is only on the victory;
- 1/DNB – in this case, the first team is supposed to win, but without a draw, if the teams play with a draw, then the bet amount is returned to the player;
- 2/DNB – the second team is expected to win, but without a draw, if the teams play with a draw, then the amount of the bet is returned to the player;
- 1 – a bet on the victory of the first team;
- 2 – a bet on the victory for the second team;
- X – bet on a draw;
- 1X – a bet on a draw or a win for the first team;
- 2X – a bet on a draw or a win for the second team;
- 12 – a bet on the victory of the first or second team, a draw in this case is not expected;
- Handicap 1 (x) is a bet with a win for the first team and a handicap, an Asian handicap is used, x can be an integer or of the form x.5, x.25, x.75, if the outcome is a draw, then the bet is returned, if x is an integer, then the bet can be divided into two (F (x) and F (x,5)), while half of the amount is credited on such a spread bet, there is a possibility of receiving a partial refund or winnings;
- Handicap 2 (x) is a bet with a win for the second team and a handicap, an Asian handicap is used, x can be an integer or of the form x.5, x.25, x.75, if the outcome is a draw, then the bet is returned, if x is an integer, then the bet can be divided into two (F (x) and F (x,5)), while half of the amount is credited on such a spread bet, there is a possibility of receiving a partial refund or winnings;
- X(x) – a bet on a draw with a handicap of the first team (the European handicap is used in calculations);
- Y2(x) – a bet on the victory for the second team, the handicap x is used (the European handicap is used for calculations);
- Total Under (x) – the type of total of the match with less x;
- Rivne (x) is the exact total for the two teams;
- Y1(x) – a bet on the victory for the first team, the handicap x is used (the European handicap is used for calculations), while x is only an integer value, if there is a draw with a handicap, then the bet with a handicap wins, all the others lose;
- Total over (x) – the total of the match with a high x, which can be an integer or of the type x.5, with a whole x and a total equal to x, the bet amount is returned, the calculation with an individual total can be used;
- iTb(x) for the first team is the individual total for the first team with a value greater than x;
- iUnder (x) for the first team is the individual total for the first team with a value less than x;
- iTb(x) of the second team is the individual total for the second team with a value greater than x;
- iTotal of the second team is the individual total for the second team with a value greater than x;
- S (x, y) – a bet on the score of the match x:y, used on the correct score of the game.

In addition, bets can be divided by the period of the game, these can be situations during which the match is taken into account in its entirety or only the first and second halves separately. In hockey, this situation applies to the entire game or one of the periods of the game, the presence of extra time. If such a bet is used, then in the table with surebet values in brackets, this must be indicated after the assignment and the value of the coefficient (the designation is put in brackets so that you can easily see it).

Bookmaker bets can also be accepted on other events, for example, on additional indicators of the event. For example, in football, yellow or red cards, corners, and own goals can be used as such indicators. For basketball, such values include two- and three-point hits, assists, rebounds, and blocks. For tennis, bets can be accepted on match balls, tie-breaks, aces.

Each time, the bookmaker looks for bets for individual situations during the game, that is, unlike the standard situation with the competition of teams, not only the number of goals, sets or games played, but also other situations are taken into account. This is the last point during the match, difficult situations, including the selection of the half in which the most goals will be scored. Conventionally, all such bets can be classified as Pob.1-Draw-Pob.2. But instead of the standard boot in this situation, halves or periods are used.

Any bet used can have multiple outcomes for the event and the conditions under which it will be considered lost or won. However, for some types of bets, this probability will be higher, even if you lose, the funds are returned in full, which is more profitable for the player – he does not lose anything. For example, if the total is greater than 3, the player bets money on it, and the total is eventually equal to 3, then the bookmaker is obliged to return the bet amount in full.

## Quaternary handicaps and totals

It has a number of bets in which a partial return or partial win becomes a reality. These are usually Asian handicap or totals, although quaternary totals are extremely rare. These bets are usually of the form Q(0.25), Over (0.75) and others, they differ in the property of actually decomposing into two separate bets that will behave in different ways. Examples include the following decomposition options:

- H(0.25) can be split into two separate bets: H(0) and H(0.5);
- Over (0.25) can be split into two separate bets Over (0) and Over (0.5);
- H(0.75) can be split into two separate bets: H(0.5) and H(1.0);
- Over (0.75) can be split into two separate bets Over (0.5) and Over (1.0).

Each of these bets, after decomposition, will be equal to half of the original amount. As an example, we can cite the following decomposition: with a bet H1 (2.25), the first team wins, the handicap is 2.25, the odds are 1.8. The player bets 100 rubles on the outcome, this value will be equivalent to two separate bets, each of 50 rubles, but one will be with a handicap of 2H1(2), and the second with a handicap of 2.5H1 (2.5!. If the difference in points for the first and second teams is equal to or less than 1, then both bets will win, that is, the player will eventually receive 180 rubles. then the bet H1 (2) is returned, and the bet H1 (2.5) becomes the winner, and the player will eventually receive a profit of 140 rubles (50 + 50 * 1.8). If the difference is 3, then both bets lose equally, that is, the player does not receive anything at all.

## Equivalent Bets

There are types of bets that are equivalent to each other. This category includes:

- Y1(0) – the bet is equivalent to 1;
- X(0) – a bet that will be equivalent to X;
- Y2(0) – a bet equivalent to 2;
- H1(0) – this type of bet will be equivalent to a W1 bet;
- Handicap 1(-0.5) – this type of bet will be equivalent to 1;
- Handicap 1 (+0.5) – this type of bet will be equivalent to a 1X bet;
- H2(0) – the bet is equivalent to W2;
- Handicap 2(-0.5) – the bet is equivalent to 2;
- Handicap 2 (+0.5) – the bet is equivalent to X2;
- Y1(0) – this type of bet will be equivalent to H1(-0.5);
- Y2(0) – this type of bet will be equivalent to a H2(-0.5) bet;
- 0:0 is equivalent to the bet Under (0.5), the value is exactly 0, both will not score and the others.

This means that it doesn’t matter which bet you play on, they will all be winning or losing under certain conditions. It is for this reason that equivalent coefficients can be used when searching for a surebet and calculating formulas.
