Sports Betting Odds

US sportsbooks display odds in three different ways, listed below.

Sports betting odds tell bettors how much they stand to win on a bet relative to the size of their wager.

The odds also show bettors at a glance which team is the favorite (more likely to win) and which is the underdog (more likely to lose).

The favored team’s odds in a matchup are displayed with a negative sign (-) and indicate how much needs to be wagered per $100 in winnings.

For example, odds of -120 tell the bettor two things:

  1. This team is a slight favorite
  2. A $120 wager will yield $100 in winnings

In this example, a winning bet of $120 would result in a total payout of $220. The payout includes the return of the original wager ($120) plus $100 in profit for a total return of $220.

The underdog’s odds in a matchup are displayed with a positive sign (+) and indicate how much the bettor stands to win per $100 wagered.

Odds of +120 tell the bettor two things:

  1. This team is a slight underdog
  2. A $100 wager will yield $120 in winnings

In this example, a winning bet of $100 would also return a total payout of $220 (the original $100 wager plus $120 in profit).

When comparing these two examples, the key thing to note is that betting on the favored team required a larger upfront outlay. Betting on the favorite required a $120 bet for a chance at profiting $100.

By contrast, betting on the underdog required a smaller outlay of just $100 for a chance at profiting $120.

Sportsbooks adjust the odds in this manner to make both sides of any bet look attractive despite perceived differences in the quality of each team.

These examples make use of convenient bet sizes for simplicity, but newer bettors may find it difficult to tell how much they stand to win or lose for random bet sizes at various odds.

However, online sportsbooks provide handy bet slips integrated into the software that allows users to input various bet sizes to instantly view how much they stand to win with any particular wager.

Moneyline Odds

US sportsbooks display all types of bets in the moneyline odds format by default, but there is also a specific type of bet called the moneyline. The moneyline bet is a simple wager on who will win the game outright.

In practice, a moneyline bet looks something like this:

  • Team A: +245
  • Team B: -286

Team A (the underdog) pays $245 for every $100 wagered. It may also be useful to think of this as being paid $2.45 for every $1.00 wagered. A winning $100 bet on Team A would produce a total return of $345 (return of the $100 risked plus $245 in winnings).

Team B (the favorite) requires the bettor to risk $286 for every $100 in winnings, or $2.86 for every $1.00. A winning $286 bet on Team B would return $386 (return of the $286 risked plus $100 in winnings).

Point Spreads

The point spread is the other common way to bet on the outcome of a game.

Point spread wagers also use moneyline odds, but they tend to be closer to even money. Instead, sportsbooks account for skill disparities between favorites and underdogs by imposing a points handicap on the favored team.

A typical point spread looks something like this:

  • Team A: +6.5 -110
  • Team B: -6.5 -110

In this example, Team A (the underdog) is given a 6.5-point advantage while Team B (the favorite) is given a 6.5-point handicap.

Bets placed on Team A are graded winners in two circumstances:

  • If Team A wins the game outright
  • If Team A loses by less than 6.5 points

Bets placed on Team B are only graded winners in one circumstance:

  • If Team B wins by more than 6.5 points

In other words, Team B needs to win by at least a touchdown for any wagers on Team B to be graded winners.

Point Totals

A point total bet, also referred to as an over/under, is a wager on the total number of points to be scored in a game.

In this wager, the goal is not to predict the winner but to predict the combined number of points to be scored by each team.

A typical points total looks like this:

  • Over 52: -110
  • Under 52: -110

In this example, the sportsbook has set the combined points total at 52 points. The bettor’s job is to predict whether the actual total will be greater than 52 points (taking the over) or less than 52 points (taking the under).
