Sports betting understanding points spread today games
and bookies fall back on point spreads to make the process a little more difficult and to create the ultimate wagering challenge.

You'll need a solid understanding of the point spread system if you hope to have a profitable season.

How the Point Spread Works, the point spread is a handicap placed on one team for betting purposes only, it has no place in the game itself.

It's designed to give both teams an equal chance at winning in the context of wagers.

Think of it this way: If last season's Super Bowl champion was playing a basement-dweller team that hadn't won a game all year, that's a shoo-in bet.

Of course, you're going to take the Super Bowl champs, and in all likelihood, you're going to win.

What's the fun in that?

Even your bragging rights would be next to nil.

But what if the basement-dweller team was spotted 24 points?

That's the concept behind the point spread.

When two teams meet on the football field or a basketball court, one team is typically better than the other.

If all bettors had to do was to pick the winning team, everybody would simply wager on the best team and collect their money.

Gambling institutions, sportsbooks, and bookies would soon go broke.

A Real Life Example.

The Carolina Panthers played the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl.

Few people doubted that Carolina was the better of the two teams, so the majority of bettors would have taken the Panthers if they had only been required to pick the winning team.

So the sportsbooks and bookies created a point spread to make both teams equally attractive in the eyes of bettors.

Carolina was installed as a 6-point favorite, which is commonly written as Carolina -6.

Denver, the underdog, is commonly written as Denver.

In other words, Denver would be credited with whatever points they actually scored  plus six.

If you bet the favorite, the Panthers would have to win by 7 points or more for you to win your wager.

And remember, the Panthers are favored by 6 points, so we have to subtract 6 points from their final score for betting purposes.

If Carolina were to win 24-17, Panthers' bettors would win their wager.

If the Panthers were to win 21-17, Carolina bettors would lose because they did not win by more than those 6 points.
