What is the point spread?

​​In a moneyline wager, the bettor focuses just on who will be the winner of the match. The odds shown are a reflection of the payout based on which team wins a game. The team with a plus sign in front of the odds is the underdog and bettors can potentially earn a higher payout if they win. On the flip side, odds with a minus sign reflect teams that are favored to win and reflect the amount that needs to be wagered in order to win $100.
