The Basics of Point Spreads
The two most popular ways of expressing odds in American football are point spreads and money lines. When you look at a point spread, you will see one team with a negative number and one team with a positive number.
Remember, for sports betting purposes, points are subtracted from the favorite team's final score to determine if the favorite is a winner. That is why the the favorite team is always listed with a negative number.
As you might expect, the reverse is true for the underdog. The underdog team is given a positive number because points are added to the underdog team's final score to determine if the underdog is a winner for purposes of the sports bet. Events that tie are considered "no action" - no one wins or loses.
For example: Lets say the New Enland Patriots are playing the New York Jets. The Patriots are expected to win the game and the spread is 6. So, you see the Patriots listed as -6 and the Jets listed as +6. You place a bet on the Patriots.
If the Patriots win by more than 6 points, you win the bet.
If the Patriots only win by 6 points, then the game is considered "no action" and all money is returned.
If the Patriots win by less than 6 points, you lose the bet.
Note that when you place point spread bets, you are generally laying 110 to win 100 (the book needs it's juice).
Point spreads can go up or down at any time depending on various factors like player injuries, weather, and the like. The spread may also be adjusted if the bets coming into the sportsbooks are disproportionately favoring one side or the other.
You are generally locked in to whatever the point spread was at the time you placed your sports bet.
Football Betting money Lines
The two most popular ways of expressing odds in American football are point spreads and money lines.
Here you will find out how football betting money lines work and how to read them. The easiest way to understand a money line, is to think of it as an indication of the amount you need to bet to win $100 or the amount you will win
if you bet $100. Money lines are expressed with a negative number, say -110, or a positive number, say +110. A negative money line number indicates what you must wager to win $100, and a positive money line number indicates what you will win if you wager $100.
If you bet $110 on a team with a money line of -110, and they win, you will win $100 ( plus return of your original $110 bet ).More Football Money Line info
