Point Spread Sport Bet

The spread is the number of points added to or subtracted from a team's actual score for betting purposes.

The favorite is indicated by the minus sign "-" and the underdog is indicated by the plus sign "+". To determine the winner for betting purposes, the Point Spread is added to the final score of the team you bet on. Point Spread rules are as follows:

  • To win the bet, the team the bettor wagered on must win by the Point Spread.

  • On certain events you can adjust the spread by buying points.

  • Games that tie when taking the point spread into consideration are no action which means the original bet amount will be refunded.

  • The odds are $1.10 to win $1.00 (-110) unless otherwise indicated.

  • The bettor cannot place a Point Spread bet on opposing teams.

  • The bettor cannot place a Money Line Sport Bet and a Point Spread Sport Bet on the same team.

  • The bettor can place a Point Spread Sport Bet on one team and a Money Line Sport Bet on the opposing team.

  • The bettor can combine a Point Spread bet with a Totals bet.

  • The Point Spread may change between the time the bettor places his bet and the time the event starts; regardless, his bet is subject to the point spread displayed at the time he placed his bet.

For example, the bettor wagers on Miami -7 to beat Buffalo +7. The following table shows possible wager results on three final scores.

Tipster's Corner by James Rodes

Just by flipping a coin, sports bettors will be right 50% of the time. At odds of 10/11, only 52.4% of the sports bettors' wagers have to win for them to overcome the bookmaker's profit and break even, so they only need a very small edge to become a winner.

Here's the low down on the different types of online sport bets:
