Point Spread and Handicap Betting
Another type of bet that you can place on many sporting events is a point spread wager. This type of wager is used very commonly in the United States. Another similar kind of bet is also common in parts of Europe and other places around the globe. In these places, this type of wager is referred to as handicap betting.
The core idea behind both of these wager types is the same. It all starts with a sportsbook determining which team they think is favored to win the match. Once they have that done, they’ll then assign a total number of points they believe that team will win the game by. It’s up to you to then decide if you think that the pick by the sportsbook is over or understated.
Here’s an example to help you visualize this: in an upcoming game with the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat, a sportsbook has posted a point spread of 5 points in favor of Miami. In short, that means that the sportsbook expects Miami to win by that many points. If you were placing a point spread wager on this game, you’d have to choose if you think the sportsbook is high or low.
If you think that Miami will win the game by at least five points or more, you will bet on Miami. However, if you believe that Chicago will win the game or lose by 4 points or less, then you’d wager on Chicago. To win this bet type, you’ll have to correctly select from one of the two options above.
