WagerWeb has earned a spot as one of the top full-service sportsbooks in the gaming industry and offers wagering options on a wide array of sporting events. What makes its Web site unique is that the sports with active lines are clearly separated from the ones that remain inactive, so it is easy to know exactly where the action is. The following is a look at a few sports that have active betting lines on WagerWeb right now.
Super Bowl XLVI
The Super Bowl continues to be the most heavily bet single-day sporting event in the world. While it is almost impossible to know how much money will be wagered on this year’s game, some estimates are as high as 15 billion dollars. While every NFL game will have a pointspread and total line, the Super Bowl is primarily known for the hundreds of proposition bets that are also offered just for this game.

WagerWeb currently has New England as a three-point favorite with the total line set at 55. The first half line has the Patriots favored by one point and the total set at 27.5 points. You can also wager on the point total by team. The total for New England is 29.5 points with the money line on the ‘over’ and ‘under’ both set at -120. The total for New York is 26.5 points with the money line on the over set at -125 with the under set at -115.
There are also a full set of prop bets for the game and for individual player performances starting with three different bets just for the coin toss. Obviously, you can wager on heads or tails and which team wins the toss with money lines set at -105 for the outcome of either bet, but there is a money line for whether or not the actual coin hits a player or referee when it is tossed. It is currently +315 for ‘yes’ and -550 for ‘no’.
One of the sections is titled ‘Entertainment Props’. A couple of examples of bets included here are over/under odds on the length of the singing of the National Anthem and the color of the Gatorade that gets poured on the winning coach.
WagerWeb has recently updated its numbers for each of the 30 NBA team’s odds to win their conference as well as this year’s NBA Finals. The Miami Heat remain a prohibitive favorite to win the Eastern Conference at -135 with the Chicago Bulls the next closest team at +150. After that things drop off pretty dramatically with the New York Knicks at +1200, the Orlando Magic at +1400, and the Boston Celtics and upstart Philadelphia 76ers at +1500.
The value here is clearly with the Bulls with the 76ers as a viable longshot based on what we have seen so far from both these teams.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are the current favorite to win the Western Conference at +170 with the Los Angeles Lakers the second favorite at +250. The defending champion Dallas Mavericks are third at +500 followed by the new-look Los Angeles Clippers at +550. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers round out the top six at +800.
The value in the West is clearly with the Clippers as this team is primed to only get better as the season progresses. The Denver Nuggets offer some value as a longshot at +1200 based on their early performance on the court.
The odds to win it all have the Heat at +150 followed by the Bulls at +300, the Thunder at +400, the Lakers at +700, the Clippers and Mavericks at +1200, and the Spurs and Trail Blazers at +1500. The Knicks are +2400 with the Nuggets at +2500 and the 76ers at +3000.
Chicago still offers the best value in this group with the Clippers earning the nod for value as a moderate longshot.
Professional tennis is in the midst of wrapping up the Australian Open, which is its first major of the year. Odds are currently posted for Friday’s men’s semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. The money line on Djokovic is -285, while the line on the underdog Murray is +190.
If professional golf is your game, WagerWeb has odds for a number of head-to-head matchups for this weekend’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego starting with Thursday’s Round 1.
