default Sports Betting - Amateur Question

Post by ShipstadPilot11 on Thu Jan 26, 2012 1:37 pm

I've never done any real sports betting and I have no intention to. However, I'm trying to understand the basics and I have an amateur question. I was trying to find the spread for the game tonight and I found "-14-110" in the "Open" column at VegasInsider.com.

Does this mean the spread is 14 points? What does the 110 represent?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I too am an amateur so I'm not sure, but it could be the over/under for total points. Usually that is something you can bet on.

I thought of that. Nearly all of the other games had "-xx-110" so I think it's something else.

I'm no expert, but generally speaking, +/- money line numbers show the amount you need to bet to win $100/the amount you win if you bet $100.

-110 means that you need to bet $110 to win $100.

+110 means that if you bet $100, you'll win $110.
