Multiplied payouts and losses are what make Pointsbetting both the riskiest and most rewarding new way to bet online.
A player at Pointsbet New Jersey was sold on the Ravens. In fact, they were was so sold on the Ravens -11 points vs Tennessee, that they staked $250 per point on BAL in the Pointsbetting market. That meant $250 per-point by which the Ravens would cover the spread. However it also meant $250 per point by which the Ravens would not cover the big spread.
So, this bold online bettor took at big hit. Shockingly, the Ravens lost the game 28-12, causing the player to lose 27 times their stake on the Pointsbetting bet. This means an epic total loss of $6,750.
Another player went for $80 per point on the UNDER 50 in the Texans-Chiefs game. The score would balloon to 82 points combined, costing this player a huge loss of $2,560. How could this be? Well, the UNDER was exceeded by 32 points. 32 points times $80 equals $2560 loss.
This highlights the big time risk reward that can be gone-for in the Pointsbetting market at PBNJ. Speaking of reward, there were some big winners this week at Pointsbet too.
A player won $2,000 at $250 per Pointsbetting point on the 49ers as nine point favorites. To break it down; the Pointsbetting spread was SF -9. The 49ers won the game 27-10. That’s a 17 point win and an 8 point cover. $250 times eight comes to a $2000 win.
Similarly, a Pointsbet player cleaned up by Pointsbetting the Texans-Chiefs game. At $45 a point on the OVER of 52, that’s a 30 point cover. Multiply it by $45 and that’s a win of $1350.

Pointsbeting is an exciting way to bet with more risk/reward. You wager a dollar amount per-point by which the spread (or total) is covered, or not covered. The amount of points why which your bet wins, or by which it falls short, is then multiplied by the per-point dollar amount. The result is your total win, or your loss.
