What is a straight bet? A straight bet is a simple type of sports bet where the bettor chooses a single outcome for a game, such as a winner, point spread, or total score.
Example: In a football game, a bettor might place a straight bet on the Green Bay Packers to win the game outright or cover the point spread.
