A line on either side is like paying a tax or commission to the sportsbook. Bettors would pay 10 percent aka juice to the sportsbook, which is essentially a fee for brokering the wager. For example, if you see If you see Typically, a point spread has odds of for either side of the bet. In the example above between the Cowboys and Giants, the point spread is 4.
A losing bet is quite simply you betting on the Cowboys You lose the money that you placed on that bet. In these cases, there may not even be a point spread available for the game and you can only bet on the moneyline.
This is a very common occurrence in sports betting and sportsbooks have the full right to shift the spread or odds for any given match prior to its start. Many factors can influence a change of the spread such as injuries, the number of bets coming in for either team or the weather, to name a few. Depending on the timing of placing the bet, the bettor can also have an advantage or a disadvantage depending on which way the spread has shifted.
If bettors had wagered on Dallas on Monday, that means they would be at a disadvantage compared to bettors who waited until Thursday because the Thursday bettors now only need Dallas to win by four points instead of five. But it can also go the other way:. Yes, in fact, sportsbooks also release spreads for different points in the match like after the first quarter or first half, which is called live betting or in-game betting.
As you can see, Dallas is a 2. Look for key numbers such as five and seven because they tend to represent two- and three-possession games. In both cases, the spread is almost always If New York pulls off an outright upset, then that is also a winning wager.
Need more winning picks? If you can think of something to bet on, there is a good chance you can find somewhere to bet on it. One of the first and most important aspects of sports betting every new player must learn is what the different symbols mean. A plus or a minus can mean different things in different situations. This is explained in more detail below, but the most important thing to be aware of is that negative numbers represent favorites, while positive numbers represent underdogs.
The same is true whether you are looking at a spread or a moneyline, but how these numbers are used is very different. Read on for the complete explanation of each of these concepts. The point spread is the projected number of points that separate two teams. A game with a spread will have a favorite the team expected to win and an underdog the team expected to lose.
In the example above, the point spread is 7 points. Patriots are favored by 7 points against the Jets. If they lose by exactly 7 points, the bet is considered a push and is canceled. If you bet on the Patriots -7, they must win the game outright by more than 7 points. The 3-digit numbers to the far right are the listed prices for these bets. This is also called the odds, vig, or juice. We will cover those in more depth when we talk about money lines.
The price of the bet has no impact on which team is favored. Only the plus or minus on the point spread matters. This is handled differently when you bet strictly on the moneyline. A moneyline bet is on a team to win the game outright without a point spread at an adjusted cost. Just like with point spread betting, the favorite will have negative odds, while the underdog will have positive odds.
The difference here is in the price or payout depending on which team you take. A favorite e. Patriots on the money line works just like our bet price example above. This added risk is why betting the spread is usually more popular, especially on favorites.
A loss by seven would result in a push. A -3 spread means that the favorite must win by more than a field goal to win the wager. A three-point win would result in a push and the sportsbook would refund the wager. A three-point loss would be graded as a push by the sportsbook and the bet would be refunded. Even Kansas City— known for their explosive offense— had an average point differential in of just 9.
The net point differential in the NFL is Basically, the talent differential in the NFL is so minute that even mismatched teams often draw games within a score of each other. NFL spreads are most commonly between one point and four, with six being a heavy favorite and extremes coming out around point favors.
Sportsbook operators often aim to have equal money on both sides of a point spread. When the money is exactly split the sportsbook operator will see the exact vigorish as their profit margin. If all things are equal over time this will maximize how much money the sportsbook operator can make. The odds for a point spread might change before the actual point spread. There are certain point spread numbers, like 3 and 7 in football, the sportsbook operators would like to avoid moving away from since the final score margin falls on these two numbers most often.
For example, if a lot more money is wagered on the New England Patriots -3, the vig may shift from to and before the line moves to Football and basketball games are mostly bet using a point spread. The less popular major sports, baseball and hockey, are mostly bet using a moneyline.
In an effort to make baseball and hockey more appealing to point spread bettors, the sportsbook operators offer run and puck lines, respectively. These alternative lines give point spread bettors a chance to wager on other sports using a more familiar method of betting. What Is A Point Spread? The listed point spread the time you make your bet may be different from the point spread when the game starts.
The point spread that is listed on your ticket is your official spread. It makes no difference which team covers the spread. Simply add the final score of each team. You may combine several teams into one wager. Odds and the number of teams vary from casino to casino.
The following are approximate odds:. Any game that results in a push reduces the parlay one team. A two-team parlay would become a straight bet. This increases the probability of winning your bet but decreases the odds of the parlay.
Odds and the number of points available to "tease" vary from casino to casino. To bet on boxing, tell the ticket writer the bet number of the boxer you wish to bet and the amount you wish to wager. Boxing odds are shown using a "Money Line. A "minus" - preceding the number indicates a favorite. Tyson is favored to win the bout. Boxing matches often feature money line proposition wagers on knockouts, draws, rounds and the duration of the fight.
Odds vary on each fight. To bet on football, tell the ticket writer the bet number of the team you wish to bet, with the point spread and the amount you wish to wager. The point spread: When betting on football, the team you bet on must "cover the spread. If you bet the Dolphins, the Dolphins must win by 7 points for you to win your bet. If you bet the Jets, any of the following will declare you a winner.
The listed point spread at the time you make your bet may be different from the point spread when the game starts. In some cases, bettors have the option to discard the point spread and bet on which team will win. This is called betting on the "Money Line". Sports books offer a number of different cards, each one having different rules. Rules for parlay cards are placed on the back of each card. Read them carefully before wagering. The cards are simple to fill out. Simply darken the boxes, or circles, that apply to the teams you wish to parlay.
Then darken the amount you want to bet. Sportsbooks offer bettors the opportunity to wager on the outcome of a season -- for example, which team will win the Super Bowl or the Stanley Cup or the American League East pennant. This is known as "futures book" or "future book" betting. As an illustration, let's look at Super Bowl futures.
For example, the Ravens may be , the Redskins , the Cardinals , etc. It does not matter whether your team covers the point spread in the Super Bowl. For the purposes of future book betting, the team has to win only the Super Bowl. When you make a futures bet, your odds are "locked in. Futures betting also is offered on the major events in horse racing, such as the Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cup.
In horse racing futures, if your horse does not start the race due to injury or any other reason, you lose the bet -- there are no refunds. On the other hand, the odds on your horse racing futures bet also are "locked in," regardless of the horse's odds on race day.
Some sportsbooks offer futures betting on unusual propositions, such as which major league baseball player will hit the most home runs in the regular season. Note that in this type of wager, all bets are action regardless of injuries or other unforeseen events. This type of wager is typically found on pro football and major league baseball, and sometimes on pro basketball. If the Yankees go on to win 94 or more games, the "over" is a winner.
If they win 92 or fewer games, the "under" is a winner. If they win exactly 93, the bet is a push and tickets are refunded. Among Las Vegas gamblers, golf is considered one of the two fastest-growing sports to bet on auto racing is the other. The most basic form of golf betting involves picking the winner of a tournament.
Typically a sports book will list 30 or more individual golfers along with a field all others option, at various odds. Another popular form of golf betting involves matchup propositions, in which two golfers are paired against each other in a head-to-head wager, with a betting line on each golfer set by the oddsmaker. The golfer with the better lower score wins the matchup. If one golfer continues play in the tournament after his opponent misses the cut, the golfer who continues play wins the matchup.
For example, a matchup may pit Lehman minus against Jim Furyk plus Some matchups pit one usually very good golfer against two or more others. To determine the winner, take Woods' score and compare with to the best lowest score recorded by the three others. If he finishes first, second or third in the tournament, the "under" wins; if he finishes fourth or worse, the "over" tickets cash.
Rules vary by casino, but usually your golfer must tee off in the tournament for "action" meaning once he tees off, you will either win or lose your bet. If for some reason he does not tee off, this is usually considered "no action" and tickets are refunded.
To bet on hockey, tell the ticket writer the bet number of the team you wish to bet and the amount you wish to wager. If your team covers the goal spread, you win. The payout is based on a "Money Line". When betting on hockey, the team you bet on must "cover the spread. The Red Wings must win the game by at least two goals to be a winner. If you bet on the Sharks, you win your bet if: a The Sharks win the game. Note: The money line is used in conjunction with the point spread.
All teams must win to win the bet. Hockey parlays are figured out by calculating the payout for the first game, based on the money line, then applying that amount to the next game and so forth. Thanks to satellite feeds from racetracks around the nation, Las Vegas is a sort of nirvana for horse racing bettors or "horseplayers," as they are sometimes called.
Because there are so many tracks to choose from, in Las Vegas race books it is usually necessary to identify which track you want when you place your bet. For example, tell the ticket writer, "Churchill Downs, eighth race, five dollars to win on No. Otherwise, betting procedure in the race book is the same as at the track: For you to collect on a "win" bet your horse must win the race, to collect on a "place" bet he must finish first or second, and to collect on a "show" bet he must finish first, second or third.
Betting a horse "across the board" is really three separate bets: one to win, one to place and one to show. Hitting an "exacta" entails picking the first two finishers in a race in the correct order; a "quinella" is the first two finishers in either order.
A "trifecta" is the first three finishers in exact order; a "trifecta box" is the first three in any order. A "superfecta" is the first four finishers in exacta order. A "daily double" is a wager that calls for picking the winners of two consecutive races. A "daily triple" entails picking the winners of three consecutive races. And a "Pick Six" calls for picking the winners of six consecutive races, an extremely difficult feat that is usually rewarded with an enormous payout.
In Las Vegas, race books frequently offer promotions such as free contests with cash prizes, special house-banked betting pools that grow larger if no one hits them for a few days or horse racing tournaments. Rules and details vary greatly by casino so be sure to shop around to find those that appeal to you. Nevada sportsbooks are not permitted to accept wagers on presidential elections, the Academy Awards or the winner of the TV show "Survivor. They are not real betting lines. Under state law, wagers must involve the outcome of "athletic contests" rather than elections or votes of any kind.
Even so, "wacky" proposition bets can sometimes be found in Las Vegas sportsbooks. They are often linked to the Super Bowl or another major sporting event. For instance, in Super Bowl XXXV gamblers could bet on whether the Ravens would score more touchdowns than the Chicago Blackhawks scored goals on Super Bowl Sunday -- and that was just one of countless "wacky" propositions.
As another example, to generate interest in Monday Night NFL games, many sportsbooks offer odds on which player will score the first touchdown in the game. These "wacky" bets can be lots of fun, but odds and details vary tremendously by casino, so read the fine print before getting involved.
