What are future wagers?

  • Updated

Future wagers are wagers for events that aren't taking place for some time. Examples of futures include picking the league champion, the MVP, and more.

Future wagers are offered in advance of and throughout sports seasons and are adjusted as the season plays out.

How do the odds work for futures?

The odds displayed for futures are what you could win based on a $100 wager if the outcome you selected occurs. 

For example, if you wager $100 on the Seattle Mariners at (+3750) to win the World Series and that occurs, you would win $3,750.

You may see a negative number displayed as the odds for some futures. In these cases, the number represents the amount you would need to wager in order to win $100.

For example, if you wager $1,200 on Norwich City at (-1200) to finish at the bottom of the Premier League table, if that occurs, you would win $100.
