    Do different books have minimum bets for spreads and ML? I'm curious if I can put $1 or $5 on each of the baseball games to just make it a bit more interesting? Or are there minimums like $20 or $25 like at table games?

    There are minimums and these days I think most Strip sports books require $5 or $10 per wager

    I make the occasional sports bet. I've always seen $5 mins on game bets and maybe a $1 or 2 on parlays and teasers.

    $5 min on spread/moneyline for CET/MLife. MLife pays $4.55 on -110, CET pays only $4.50. :evillaugh

    Just at the Rio and it was $5.00 for sports, I think horses are $2 minimum.

    A $1 bet would yield a vig of about 5 cents, which probably won't cover the wage of the writer taking your bet, let alone the risk, air conditioning, etc. The $5-10 minimums haven't changed in the 20 years I have been coming to Nevada.

    I've bet as little as $5 on a super bowl prop. I usually just bet in increments of $11 if it's a -110 bet.
