Spread Betting Examples From a NFL Game


My first Spread Bet was a NFL game about 7 or 8 years prior. I truly enjoyed the Chargers (- 3) at home against the Redskins. I previously put down a $100 wager on my standard online Sports Book (short $110 to win $100). I chose to put $25 on the Chargers at less 3 focuses. I realized the Skins were lazy on offense and the Chargers were incredible on guard following 3 weeks into the NFL season. With Spread Betting, to put down a wager, you ‘Purchase’ the top pick or ‘SELL’ the dark horse.

The online spread wagering board was recorded at Chargers/Redskins – SELL 1 – BUY 3. This implies take the top choice at BUY 3 or SELL top pick at 1 which is wagering Redskins at in addition to 1 point.

The Chargers won helpfully with incredible safeguard. The last score was 24 to 3 with the Skins offense being languid once more. Presently with my normal Sports Books I won $100 however with my Spread Bet of $25 I won $500. Pretty cool! The spread contrast was 21 focuses ( 24 short 3 = 21). My record had a cap limit of 20 focuses. This cap permits a limit of multiple times your cash stake to be added to or deducted from your record balance. This was a choice I acknowledged to limit hazard. This was significantly more energizing than a directly up wager for even cash short the vig.

Where was the danger on this wagered? On the off chance that the Redskins won 24 to 3, I would have lost $500. Yet, I realized that was not likely given each groups qualities and shortcoming. Washington wasn’t going to head out east coast to west drift and play a predominant San Diego group and win by 20 – no chance. How frequently do you see a predominant group win by these scores – 21 to 3, 24 to 10, 27 to 17 etc….

I felt my danger side was not so hazardous. State the Redskins figured out how to win by 3 to 7 focuses. On the off chance that the Skins wins by 4 and I am laying 3 focuses, at that point I lose multiple times my cash wager ($25 x 7 = $175 misfortune). I felt the potential gain for the game had more potential than the disadvantage. Old style disabling aptitudes actually have the reason for any picks. I was compensated for my mastery – more than I anticipated.
