Sports Book Lingo: Point Spread


The point spread is a line established by the book that indicates what “they” think the difference in score will be for any given event. In a point spread bet, the team must win by the amount of points they must give. For example, minus six in a football game means the team must win by seven for the bet the bet to pay off. If the team are plus six, then they must win the game or lose by no more than five points, in order for the bet to pay off.
