During a sporting event, betting on the point spread is an important part of the game. Point spreads are used by sportsbooks to even out unbalanced fixtures. They are also used by professional sports bettors to identify inefficiencies in the game lines.
Point spreads are used in most sports. They are especially useful in high scoring sports like football. They also work well in single game wagers like parlay betting. They can be confusing at first.
A point spread can be as large as 50 points. Point spreads are also used to keep games interesting when one team has a huge advantage over the other.
OVER/UNDER sports betting is a type of betting where you pick if the total score of the game will be over or under the total set by the oddsmaker.

Generally, the NFL is the most popular sport for over/under bets. However, there are other options available, such as baseball and hockey.
