Spread Betting

The essence of spread (handicap) betting is that both teams will have an equal chance to win the game. This is done by either subtracting a certain number of points from the favored team's final score; or by adding the same number of points to the underdogs final score to give them both equal chances. 

  • P1 ( ) – is a first-team win taking into account the handicap, which are in brackets.
  • P2 ( ) – is a second-team win taking into account the handicap, which are in brackets.
  • Positive Handicap– usually marked with a "+"  sign, such as Chicago (+7.5) or Las Vegas (+12.5), etc. 
  • Negative Handicap– usually marked with a "-" sign, such as New York (-3.5) or Philadelphia (-8.5), etc.
  • The handicap can also be zero and is marked as follows: Tampa Bay (0) or  (0).

Betting on the Over/Under (Totals)

Betting on the over/under (totals) is exactly how it sounds. The sportsbook will pick out a certain statistic from the game, most often the total points but could be fouls, penalites, corners, field goals etc., and you will need to bet whether there will be more (over) or less (under) in the actual game. 

  • TO ( ) – is a bet on totals of more goals/points/games, etc.
  • TU ( ) – is a bet on totals less than goals/points/games, etc.
