TwinSpires Sportsbook uses the American odds system by default. The price of the wager is graded based on a scale of $100. Payouts for a wager will scale up and down according to the amount risked.
The minus sign (-) denotes the favorite and indicates how much a player has to wager in order to win $100. A $100 wager on -165 odds would win $60.61 (total return of $160.61). A $165 wager on -165 odds would win $100.
The plus sign (+) indicates how much a player would win if they wagered $100. A $100 wager on +130 odds would win $130 (total return of $230). A $50 wager on +130 odds would win $65 (total return of $115).
The Moneyline is a bet on the straight up winner of the game - it's as simple as that. Bet on who you think is going to win the game.
A popular market on sports like Football and Basketball, the Point Spread is the forecasted point differential between two teams. A minus (-) indicates the favorite, while a plus (+) represents the underdog.
In the below example, if you bet the favorite, Green Bay Packers -3.5 on the Point Spread, they need to win by 4 or more points for your bet to be a winner.
Conversley, if you bet the underdog, Tampa Bay Buccaneers +3.5 on the Point Spread, they need to win the game OR lose by 3 points or less to be a winner.
