For this reason it’s important to understand American odds even if you don’t plan to use the format at your sportsbook. To bet a profitable bettor you have to win more money than you lose. You’ll notice I didn’t say you need to win more “bets” than you lose. Positive numbers refer to teams not favored to win; underdogs. These teams may be less likely to win, but they will also bring in more money if they do. Say you want to bet on a game where the Tennessee Titans are the underdogs at +185 and the New England Patriots are favored to win at -215.

Lines can also move in both directions as sportsbooks might change the Bills, +5.5, and Steelers, -5.5. That movement could entice Bills bettors and with enough money bet on the Bills the line could return to +4.5 and -4.5 respectably. Just like in a moneyline bet, this number indicates what the payout will be in the case of a win. For example, the spread and odds for Team B might be (-22.5, -120). This means that Team B is favored to win by more than 22.5 points. If you were to make this bet and Team B did win by 23 points or more, and you bet $120 on the game, then you would win $100.

This allows for increased odds and higher payouts, but all aspects of the wager must win, or the entire parlay fails. The only difference between a teaser and a pleaser bet is that the sportsbook is able to apply the points of variance to the line as opposed to the bettor. Also, just like a parlay and a teaser, all facets of the pleaser must win, or the entire bet fails. If the legal sportsbook were to grant a 6 point allowance for this teaser, then the points could be applied anywhere to the bettors’ liking – all on one spread or a point here or there.

Reducing the spread to a half point lessens the degree of variance from 2 total points to 1. If the spread is 7.5, teams must now win by 8 or lose by less than 7. Prop bets are also able to be included in the combination. Some sports betting sites may have differing policies regarding what they allow to be included in parlay bets, so do a little research before deciding which book best suits your needs. Winnipeg is the favourite in this game and has odds of -370 to win the game. That means that you would need to wager $370 to win $100.

This is shown in the above screenshot where I entered a bet amount of $370 and the sportsbook displays a bet payout of $470. For example, let’s assume you wanted to place a moneyline wager on the Bama/USC game and three other college football games happening the same weekend. To win your bet, you would have to pick the winners of all four games. Total payout is the total amount of money the sportsbook will give you if you win your bet, including both your original wager and your profit. Profit is exactly that, only the part of your payout that is above and beyond your returned wager.

What that sign denotes is how much you’ll win betting on each side. If there’s a positive sign next to the odds, that indicates the amount of money you would win if you bet $100. If the odds on a tennis player said +150, that means that for a $100 bet, you would win $150. Now if there is a minus sign in front of the odds, that is the number that you would have to bet in order to win $100.
