Betting the Point Spread
Betting the point spread is the most popular way to bet on football.
The point spread is a number the oddsmakers come up with in order to level the playing field of the two opposing teams. Basically, the favored team will be spotting the underdog a certain amount of points. In order for those who bet on the favorite to win their wager, the favorite must win the game by more than the point spread. If the favorite wins the game by fewer points than the point spread or lose the game altogether, those that placed bets on the underdog would win their wager.
Betting the Total
Betting the Total is also known as the over/under, the ‘total’ is a predicted number of combined points between two opposing football teams. You have the option of either betting the ‘over’ or the ‘under’. If you wagered on the ‘over’, the two teams must combine for more points than the listed ‘total’ in order for the wager to win. If you backed the ‘under’, the two teams can not combine to score more points than the listed ‘total’ in order to cash.
Betting the Money Line
Money Line is the third most popular option for betting on football. When betting on the money line you are betting on a team to win the game outright, the final score does not matter.
The preferred team will have a minus (-) sign in front of a number while the underdog will have a plus (+) sign in front of a three digit number.
