Los Angeles Lakers. With a point spread wager, you have a favorite and an underdog, similar to a moneyline wager. However, you're wagering on the difference in points with the final score of the match. That means there are two scenarios of how this bet can play out:. If it was the first game of the season, then their ATS record would be ATS, which means they covered the spread once and never failed to cover the spread.
You will see season records like ATS for a specific team, like a college football team, in the statistics. During the season, such a college football team would have covered the spread 7 times, and failed to cover the spread two times. So, against the spread betting is actually less popular in those sports than moneyline wagers. Still, in any sport where you have two teams competing against each other, you'll be able to bet the spread. The mechanics of betting the spread, though, in these sports is identical.
Typically, bookmakers will install the favored team as a 1. With most bet types, the odds are what it all comes down to. You want to shop around for the best lines, and you also want to make sure the odds are the best you can get. With a point spread, the betting odds are usually but not always A typical example of betting odds for a football game between the Carolina Panthers and the Green Bay Packers:.
Thus, there are two components of point spread betting odds. The numbers are in constant flux, and different sportsbooks will have different odds. As a gambler, you always want the most favorable odds. That's why it's critical to have accounts at multiple sportsbooks.
Our advice is to have at least three sportsbooks to give yourself a good opportunity to get the best number. For many, ATS betting is something done for entertainment purposes. However, we're betting to make some dollars here, so let's get down to business. When you're comparing the odds at separate sportsbooks, you need to determine which sportsbook has the best odds for your particular wager.
To calculate your payout, we'll provide you with a short example to illustrate:. In the betting lines above, you can see that the Buccaneers are the point spread favorite, while the 49ers are the underdog. However, the odds for both teams are slightly different, as the sportsbook has moved the moneyline odds away from the standard odds to try to attract more money on San Francisco.
This leaves you with two possibles outcomes of this game:. When you're scrolling around social media or various sports betting portals, you will see many gambling-related terms. It might feel a bit overwhelming at times since you're not entirely sure what they all mean. You could call up your buddy who knows every term or head to google to get familiar.
To avoid that, sportsbooks usually try and include a half number in the spread e. Moneyline odds of is very hard to establish long-term success because the winning payouts are small and one loss could eliminate any positive gains. The same moneyline will have ATS odds of which is more attractive to a bettor. The point spread is added to the team getting points and subtracted from the team laying points teams once the game is final to determine the winner. From our NFL sample, you can see the Bills are getting 4.
Next to the point spread are the odds which both are at Odds of is pretty common, but sometimes you can find a sportsbook with reduced juice. Bills would need to lose by four points at less. Once the game is final you would add 4. Bills would need to lose by five points or more.
If after adding 4. In the scenario of a tie, if adding the four points to the Bills equals the Steelers then a tie is scored and the wagered amount is returned to the bettor. If you are betting the Bills then the term is referred to as getting the points. Some might refer to it as catching the points also. A bet on the Steelers is referred to as giving the points or more commonly laying the points. As moneyline odds change as previously mentioned, so does ATS lines. Once the sportsbooks receive more units on the Bills the line will be shifted down to deter additional bets on the Bills.
The sportsbook might drop it to 4 or even 3. Likewise, if more money is being placed on the Steelers the spread will increase to 5 or 5. The shift is because the sportsbooks need to balance out the money wagered between the two sides. There are no limits or restrictions on how often a line can move. Middling is a strategy of betting both sides of the spread — once before the line moves and once after the line moves — and hoping the final score settles in the middle, so both of your bets win.
Because the spread is subject to shifts based on which team is getting more support, a publicly adored favorite can move by a few points, and create an excellent opportunity for aware bettors. Take Super Bowl 50 as an example. The Carolina Panthers opened the week as 3. Point spreads are used in most sports. Very very rarely do those sports post different ATS spreads. Basketball, football and soccer are dependent on the matchups. In basketball and football you can see point spreads into the double digits.
Sportsbooks will set the total number of points scored thus allowing you to determine if more or less will occur. In our example of For that bet to win 39 points would have to be scored. For those thinking less than 38 points will be scored a wager on the under would be more to your liking. Since it is a bet on the total points scored it is irrelevant how many each team scores. A dream scenario for over bettors as overtime means more time to score points!
When a game is tied after regulation and extra time is needed to determine a winner this is music to the ears of over bettors. Meanwhile, the under bettors are left sweating the extra time. A parlay of Bills and the under means the Bills must win and the total be under Now that you understand the basics to betting you can succeed! As with most things, consider starting off slow while getting yourself familiar with the industry. Starting with these three basic bets is a great way to start.
That number represents how many points, combined, are expected to be scored during the game. If you bet the over, any final score that adds up to or more will make you a winner, and any score that is or lower will cause you to lose. One of the appeals of game total bets is that you can win no matter the quality of the actual game.
