1st off id rather bet the spread at -1.5 then the moneyline on this one


and if your going to bet anything tonight take the cavs -6.5 to the pacers. hell id even think about the moneyline at -280, cause well its the pacers


i took LA the other night at 01/27/10(19:15 ET)
Lakers(LA) -6

and usually watch the pacers spreads and who there playing and take the opposing team

But with the way Warriors play, you just aren't likely to see a close game, they are either going to the win the game or lose by at least 5, their SRS on the season is -3.78

-125 means for every $12.50 you bet, you get paid $10, in this case the odds setter thinks Charlotte will win, that's why you are offered better odds to bet on GS to win.

-1.5 is referring to a points spread. The Bobcats are expected to win, so they are given a 1.5 point advantage if you bet with the spread. So if you bet on the Warriors and they lose by 1 point you still win the bet.

i completely agree and i wouldnt bet it, but at -1.5 for per 100 your going to win more then at -125 per 100. So if i was going to bet it id take the spread cause the only way you can lose is if they lose by 2 or more


however im taking the cavs tonight at -6.5, miami -2 at det, and if your a gambler sac +400 moneyline and the over on that game at 204.5 vs jazz

Youre kidding right?

You realize you can still bet money line within your Parlays right?

Did you mean betting the spread is the way to play?

Spread is the opposite to Money Line not Parlay

When you say moneyline do you mean like total points over/under? Maybe I got the terms mixed up.

moneyline is odds for whoever wins.


for example

sac is +400 4 to 1
utah is -500 1 to 5

so if you bet 100

if sac wins you get 400.00 if you bet sac
if you bet utah and they win 20.00 if you bet utah

but there are no spreads etc, it just based on winning....so the underdog is always going to payout more cause the odds or you winning are worse.



spreads are basically if they score over or under the amoung

for example sac vs utah it is 203.5

you bet 100 dollars on the over/under of 203.5 you win 100.00 minus juice/whatever someplace is charging you to take the bet

Overview of the more popular sportsbook wagers:

Straight Bets
Pick one team or one event

The payoff for straight bets for a team to cover the point spread is at a ratio of $10 for every $11 bet. This means a bettor needs to pick 52.4% of all games correctly in order to break even (assuming the bet for each game is exactly the same).

Straight bets can be made using either the point spread or the "money line".

Pointspread Bets

As stated earlier, the "line" is set for each game by the odds makers. Favorites will have a - (minus) sign followed by a number, while the underdogs will have a + (plus), followed by a number.

Here's an example NFL line:
Denver + 7
Kansas City -7

Denver is the favorite and must win by 8 points or more to win. If they win by exactly 7 points, the game is a "push" or tie, and you get the amount of your bet back. If Denver wins by 6 points or less, or loses the game, then those that bet on KC will win the money.

A lot of times you'll see a 1/2 point, for example Denver is -7 1/2 points. This eliminates "pushes" since a team can't score 1/2 a point.

Sometimes you'll see games where the spread is "Pick" or "PK". That means the line is 0 and no points are in effect...just pick the winner.

Point spread bets can be either "straight" or "parlay" bets.

Moneyline Bets

Here, the point spread isn't a factor, as you only choose the winners of games. Since not all teams are created equal, everyone would bet on the best teams. So, the casinos offer benefits for betting on bad teams, while giving a penalty for betting on the good teams.

These benefits and penalties are in the form of odds. Let's take a look at a typical money line for the Denver/KC game above.

Denver -175
KC +200

Notice the '+' and '-' signs. The '-' sign for Denver means if you bet $175 on Denver, as the favorite, you would only win $100 (plus your original bet). If you took the underdog, KC, and bet $100, if KC won, you'd win $200 (plus your original bet).

If everything was totally even, both the + and - numbers should be even. The differences in these numbers is where the casinos get their "rake", or profit. In our example, they are taking in $200, but only paying out $175.

Over/Under Bets

Here's a very popular bet among many football gamblers. You're betting on whether the total points scored by both teams will be more or less than the number posted.

For example:
Denver/KC: Total = 43

This means after the game, add up the total points BOTH Denver and KC scored. If the total is 44 or more and you bet the "over", you're a winner! But, if both teams scored less than that, you'll lose your wager.

Your payoff is also $10 for every $11 wagered, since over/unders are considered straight bets. However, you can bet an over/under as part of a parlay.

Parlay Bets

This is a bet where more than one event must happen in order for you to win your bet. Since it's harder to predict multiple events than it is for a single event, you'll get paid more than "even money" if you win a parlay.

A parlay is most often bet using the point spread for two or more games. Let's use the "lines" for the following two games:

Game 1:
Denver -7
KC +7

Game 2:
Dallas -3
San Fran +3

Our "two teamer" may be Denver for game one and San Fran for game two for our "two-team parlay". If Denver wins by 8 points or more AND San Fran either loses by less than 3 points or wins, then we'll win our parlay. Any other result, and we lose.

Over/unders can also be a part of a parlay. Say the over/under is 43 for the Denver game, we may make a parlay of "Denver and Over"...meaning if Denver wins by more than 7 points AND all the points scored in the game by BOTH teams is more than 43 points, we win our parlay. Or, we can have a four team parlay, betting only over/unders. Any combinations is fine...You want 3 over/unders and 3 point spread bets for a 6 teamer? It's all up to you.

It's very easy to get a couple of parlay's in for a single Monday Night Football game. Bet the point spread and over/under for the first half, then another parlay for the point spread and over/under in the second half. Yes...many online sportsbooks even have lines and over/unders for each half!!!

Usually, ties will cause you to lose a parlay, unlike straight bets, were ties are a push and you get your original wager returned. There are a few sportsbooks offering "ties win" parlay cards, but usually give slightly lower payouts in exchange.

Parlays can offer the gambler some serious excitement, since the payouts for a multi-team parlay can be very high.

GS at home anything can happen. I usually go for GS with a safe bet. Charlotte has been really good, but I like the Warriors chances at Oracle, thats where I'd put my money
