Limits

Sports betting limits are designed for one thing only – to limit or otherwise minimize the house’s (i.e. sportsbook) damage. Typically, sports betting has a small profit margin – usually between 1% to 4%. There’s very little room for error, so sportsbooks have designed a way to counter that. That’s where limits come into play.

The sports betting limits are listed by sport with maximum betting limits for each type of wager. The minimum bet placed through the Internet is $10 while the maximum allowed is $10,000. The minimum bet placed through the Call Center is $50 while the maximum allowed is determined by management.
