Ive bet horses for years and just started betting basketball and hockey about a week ago. Haven't been doing too bad just playing around with $10 bets. I finally jumped and put a $100 on the Toronto/New York game, straight line bet Toronto to win. Had no idea it said 3 way in the header and even if I saw that I had no idea what that meant. Game tied after regulation and bit my nails through overtime which ended in a tie and a shootout ending in tie. Finally the leafs got the point and won't in second shootout. I was stoked to win $357 until I checked my account and it told me I lost at regulation end. Took a solid half hour for me to figure out what happened. Anyways, are there any other nuances to sports betting a rookie should look out for? Any tips? The horses were much more straightforward than this.

That sucks man, always read the header they usually specify the type of bet you are taking, Also if you dont know or understand a type of wager I would suggest to hold off until you figure out exactly what the bet it.
