What is Spreadline betting?
A spread bet is betting on a specific team that has been either given points or had points taken away due to the matchup.
For example, if Team X is favored by 6.5 points over Team Y, a bet on the favorite “giving” 6.5 points means Team X would have to win by at least 7 points for the bet to cash. On the other hand, a bet on the underdog “getting” 6.5 points means Team Y could lose by as many as 6 points and the bet would still be a winner.
Certain Spreadline markets such as specific quarters and halves are subject to the Dead Heat rule. Be sure you check the market info 'i' to confirm.
