How to bet on football spreads.
Here's an example of a football spread:
Sunday 1pm EST. Pats @ Colts +3.5
The spread(+3.5) always applies to the first team listed(Pats). In the example above, you bet on whether the Pats will beat the Colts by 3.5 or more points. If you bet on the Pats winning, you only win money if the Pats win the game by 3.5 points or more. If the score is 21-20 Pats, you still lose even if though the Pats won because they didn't win by 3.5 or more.
If you bet on the Colts, you will win the bet if the Colts win, lose by 1, lose by 2, or lose by 3. So if the score is 21-20 Pats and you bet on the Colts, you still win the bet because the Colts didn't lose by more than 3.5 points.
Example of a negative spread:
Sunday 1pm EST. Jets @ Ravens -15.5
The spread always applies to the first team. In this case, if you bet on the Jets, you are betting if the Jets will win or will lose by 15.5 points or more points. So if you bet on the Ravens, they have to win by 15.5 points or more for you to win the bet. If you bet on the Jets, you win the bet if the Jets win the game, or lose by 15.5 or more. If the score is 10-7 Ravens, you lose your bet because the Jets only lost by 3.
Example of a whole number spread:
Sunday 1pm EST. Saints @ Raiders +4
You are betting if the Saints win by more than 4. If the Saints win by 4, most of the time you get your money back. It is basically a draw.
