Sports Betting Dictionary

Here are a few of the most common definitions people ask about. Or click here for the full list of sports betting definitions we have compiled.

  • Spread: When you bet on the “Spread” you are betting on a team to “cover” a certain point range. For instance, Cowboys -3 means you are betting on the Cowboys to win the game by 3 points or more.
  • MoneyLine: When you bet on the “MoneyLine” you are betting a team to win the game — straight up. For instance, Cowboys -185 on the MoneyLine means you are betting on the Cowboys to win the game straight up. But you would need to wager $185 to return $100.
