This is the same thing as betting a moneyline favorite, except you are giving or getting points. <BR/><BR/>Using your ($10 per unit) example... <BR/><BR/>Yes $33 to win $30 on spreads (assuming -110). <BR/><BR/>However, on a baseball moneyline wager, such as -150, a 3-unit wager would be $45 to win $30 (or 4.5 units to win 3). <BR/><BR/>For an moneyline underdog, such as +150, a 3-unit wager would be would be $30 to win $45. <BR/><BR/>You are betting "to win" (that many units) on moneyline favorites and you are "risking" (that many units) on moneyline underdogs. <BR/><BR/>As another example, on Wednesday we had a 1 unit, +150 winner (+1.5 units) and a 1 unit, +150 loser (-1 units) and a 3 unit, -150 loser (-4.5 units) which gave us a -4.00 unit losing day.<BR/><BR/>Make sense?<BR/><BR/>-The VisionaryThe Visionaryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08252685308905015500noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8063840812042556351.post-53042287047609941852008-09-11T14:50:00.000-04:002008-09-11T14:50:00.000-04:00When you say these are "to win" amounts on spreads...When you say these are "to win" amounts on spreads, if I am understanding correctly, then a $10 player betting the spread of a 3-unit game at -110 would be wagering $33. But on either side of the money line (+ or -), a 3-unit wager would be a straight $30.<BR/><BR/>Is that correct?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
