2017 X-Games Live Betting - Xtreme Games Odds at BetDSI
The X-Games came onto the scene in 1995, but it seems like it has been around forever. The X stands for extreme, and ESPN looked to cash in on the growing excitement around skateboarding and BMX cycling and other events that were not thought of as sports until the last decade. The X-Games are known more as a “hip” event with rock bands playing, along with DJs and it is also a mostly green event as there is tons of recycling done on site. In 1999, The X-Games became the first sporting event to be broadcasted in full on the Internet, so it is an event that embraces modern times and the popularity of the X-Games is a huge reason why you could see skateboarding at the Olympics much sooner than you think.

While the X-Games started in the summer of 1995, the Winter X-Games kicked off in 1997 as snowboarding became more mainstream. Both have been held in the United States since its inception, but now there is also an X-Games Asia, Europe and South America as well. You can find all of the events on ESPN and their entire family of channels, of course, as well as ABC and NET (News and Entertainment Television, a TV station in India).
How To Bet On X-Games
Betting on the X-Games is similar to wagering on the Olympics in that it is broken up into categories. In each event, you’ll see an option that is priced using the common American odds, which is also known as basic moneylines. You could see an athlete like Shaun White posted at +350 to win an event like halfpipe and that means that if you bet on White and he wins, you would win $350 from your $100 bet. Of course, you don’t have to bet exactly $100. That’s just the basic ratio set up so that everyone can understand.
Also, you might see an athlete valued at -350, which means you would have to bet $350 to win $100. The plus sign denotes the underdog while the minus sign denotes the favorite. When you’re betting the favorite, you bet the amount next to the minus sign – in this case, $350 – to win $100. When you’re betting the favorite, you win the amount next to the plus sign when you bet $100. In the aforementioned case, you’d win $350 with White.
That’s the basics of the Winter X-Games betting odds. You also might find some props for certain athletes as well, for example, the number of medals that Shaun White will win at the Winter X-Games. In that case, you would see an over/under with a set number from the sportsbook and you bet on whether he’ll win more or less than that amount.
You might also find head-to-head matchups where you can bet on who will place better in a specific event.
