BETTING THE SPREAD
Point Spreads apply to single contests and provide an enhancement to the simple win/loss wager. They are utilized by odds makers to normalize the odds between two teams, in order to generate betting interest for both sides. Sports bettors make their picks by deciding if the margin of victory will be larger or smaller than the estimated point spread.
To identify the point spread for each game, just look for the plus or minus symbols beside the team name. In the example below, we see the Bulldogs at -10.5 points against the Gamecocks at +10.5.
This tells us that the Bulldogs must win by at least 10.5 points to cover the spread.
- + SYMBOL = Receiving the points
- – SYMBOL = Giving away the points
A bet on the Bulldogs wins win IF:
- The Bulldogs win by 10.5 points or more
A bet on the Gamecocks wins IF:
- The Gamecocks defeat The Bulldogs outright
- The Bulldogs win the game by less than 10.5 points.
If you bet on the Gamecocks, and they lose the game… you can still win, if the Bulldogs don’t cover the spread!
