NFL Point Spread Betting Explained

The NFL’s best team will win most of the games. Spread betting is the most popular NFL option. Spread betting handicaps the favorite team, making it more level playing field. Spread betting allows bets on favorite teams to cover the spread, which allows them to pay more than money lines. It also gives underdogs a chance to win. This page will provide a detailed explanation of NFL spread betting.

Spread betting in NFL involves a set number of points. This is the team that the oddsmakers assign to each team. This is also called the games handicap. To bet on the favourite team to win, the preferred team must win the match by more points than is allowed by the spread. This is called covering the spread. To place a wager on the win of the underdog, they must win the game or lose less than the spread. This is called beating the spread. If a team is 7 points in favour, the favourite must win more than one touchdown to cover the spread. The underdog must win or lose less than one touchdown to beat the spread.

Additional information about spread betting in the NFL

The spread may be set at an odd number, such as 3, 6, 10, or 10. If the spread was set at an even number, such as 3, 6, 10, etc., the spread would be pushed and all bets returned. If the Patriots were 3 points favorites and won by a field goal (3 points), this would result in a push. This means that no matter what side you bet on, your money would be returned.

Spreads for NFL games are typically between 2.5 and 10.5 points. However, you will almost always see spreads that are lower than 2.5 or higher than 10.5. If the oddsmakers decide that the spread is unnecessary, the spread would be set at 0. (or what some call a pickā€™em) where both teams have equal odds of winning.

The spread odds are generally -110, unless otherwise noted. It is common to see the spread split with one side at -105 and the other at -115. If there are no odds for either side of the NFL spreads, you should assume that they are -110. Are you unsure how to interpret NFL betting odds? Our Sports Betting Odds Guide will help you.
