Points Spread

The measure of perceived difference in the abilities of participants in a given event as illustrated in the Handicap/Spread market.

The favourite is always indicated by a minus sign (e.g. -8.5pts) and the underdog by a plus sign (e.g.+8.5pts).

For betting purposes, the outcome of the game is determined by taking the actual game score and finding the difference between the scores of the two teams playing (called the points spread or just the “spread”)
