If there is a minus next to the team you selected - subtract those points from the final score for your team.

Totals (Over/Under) Wager
The Total is the combined amount of points scored by both teams during the game, including overtime.A player may wager Over or Under the total. In an Over wager, the player wagers that the total combined points scored by the two teams will be more than the total. In an Under wager, the player bets that the total points scored by the two teams will be less than the total. There will be no totals during the preseason. The Half-Point, Teaser and Super Teaser Parlay Cards will carry all totals. The $100,000 Parlay Card will have select totals on occasion. There is not a Totals-Only Card.
Early Bird Card (Early bird cards are the only card available during preseason.)
Early Bird Parlay Cards may be played daily throughout the preseason and on Mondays and Tuesdays during the regular season. To play Early Bird Cards, refer to the designated separate sheet for teams and point spreads. A new sheet will be available each Monday and Tuesday. The payoffs are the same as the Half-Point Card. Download the most current sheet.
The Half-Point Parlay card is the most popular type of card in Las Vegas and will offer payoffs ranging from 6.5 for 1 on a three-team parlay to 2,500 for 1 on a 12-team parlay. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
On a Teaser Card, the point spreads differ from those on the Half-Point card. The favored teams have to cover fewer points in order to be winning selections. The underdog teams receive more points. The payoffs on the Teaser Card are lower than they are on the Half-Point card because of the advantage the player gets on the point spread. On a Teaser Card, players may parlay from 3 to 20 teams (since the point spreads have been adjusted, wagering is available on both sides of a game)and receive payoffs ranging from 12 for 5 to 1,000 for 1. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
Super Teaser Card
On the Super Teaser Card, the point spreads are adjusted even more so than the Teaser Card. The favored teams have to cover even fewer points in order to be winning selections. The underdog teams receive more points. The payoffs on the Super Teaser Card are lower than they are on the Teaser Cards because of the additional advantage the player gets on the point spread. On a Super Teaser Card, players may parlay from 4 to 20 teams (since the point spreads have been adjusted, wagering is available on both sides of a game) and receive payoffs ranging from 11 for 5 to 80 for 1. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
Reverse Teaser Card
On the Reverse Teaser Card, the point spreads are adjusted so the favored teams must cover a larger point spread and underdog teams must cover a point spread that is smaller, and, in some cases, even minus points. In some cases both teams in a game may be minus points and you may not bet both teams in that game. Because of these point spread adjustments, the payoffs are much higher than those found on the other teaser cards. On a Reverse Teaser Card, players may parlay from 3 to 8 teams and receive payoffs ranging from 20 for 1 to 5,000 for 1. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
$100,000 Parlay Card
Players wager $5 and select 15 games against the point spread. If a player correctly picks 15 out of 15 games, he wins $100,000. If there is more than 1 winning ticket, the $100,000 prize is divided equally among the winning tickets. The $100,000 Parlay Card will have a few select Totals (Over/Under) Wagers upon occasion.

No card required. This wager is available during preseason (a new sheet will be provided each Monday). Players may wager on any or all of the 32 pro football teams to win the Championship Game. This wager is offered for the entire current season. To place a bet, the player simply selects a team. The odds fluctuate during the season, but are locked in at the time the wager is placed. For a team to win the Championship Game, it must win three games: at least two playoff games and the Championship game. A new sheet is provided each week during the regular season.
In Off-the-Board Parlays, the point spreads may fluctuate from the opening line. Players can parlay from three to eight teams and receive payoffs ranging from 11 to 2 to 160 to 1. There is a $5 minimum bet on Off-the-Board Parlays.
The players can select 6, 6 1/2, 7 and 10-point Teasers. A Teaser allows the player to add extra points to an underdog’s point spread or subtract points on a favored team.
For halftime wagers, point spreads apply to the final score of the game and not to second half scoring alone.
