God damn why? Why on FSU when they haven't won a meaningful game in 7 years?

I could have found at least 15 bets I would have rather made yesterday besides FSU on the road against their first ranked opponent with a new coaching staff.


Sucks dick to be whoever that was.

You're either very tired, don't know how to read a sportsbook ticket, or have no idea how spreads work man.

Restaurants are great places to get bets straight up during football season. I actually have a friend who just goes to BWW almost every weekend and bets on games with the same people who are there every week. They all bet straight up too, weird ****. He cleans up a lot though.

I just use the campus bookie mostly, works for me.

spreads typically have juice of -110

in decimal format, -110 = 0.91 TIMES what you wager

so you bet $100, it pays $91 plus your $100 back

in other words, any spread will pay slightly less than even money.

No, I get it.

Underdog on the road being within 8 points at -110, stupid stupid bet.

At +7.5 should have been -100, dollar for dollar to cover for this particular matchup.

Although, hindsight is a b!tch. There was a lot of himming and hawing pregame that made bets like this seem viable.

K, dollar for dollar isn't double money lol, it's even.

Your first post basically said you expected odds to be at +200 for a bet like this.

Personally I don't think a 9.1% increase in payout would have made the bet any better, it was a pretty bad one to start with.

i can confidently say this is the most retarded post i have ever seen on this forum...

u have a lot of reps, and i dont, but i cant resist replying.

In the NFL, what is the players motivation to play their best exactly?
Money? They have already signed their contracts before the games, they are millionaires no matter what.

In the NCAA, what is the players motivation to play their best exactly?
To get into the NFL, or another country's league, where many of them can make 50,000 times what all their relatives combined make and they can change their families lives forever. They can live the good life.


So, lets review. Not all pro football players try their hardest. And, urineidiot.

ALL college football players try their hardest.

-100 I thought was double money.

For every $100 you bet, you get $100 if you fall in the spread. Versus at -110, for every $110 bet, you get paid $100 if you fall in the spread.

This is what negatives mean. -150 is getting 75% on your money, -200 is getting 50% on your money, so on and so forth.

But they dont call it -100. I just forget the term for it.

Uhh, not quite sure if you get it yet, but i'm giving you the benefit of the doubt

At +7.5 you will rarely see a +100 juice, why? Because nobody is going to pay -120 on a -7.5 spread. 7 is a key number, you don't want to lay -7.5 points when you can wait to try and get it at a touchdown or less, and you definitely don't want to overpay of you're a half point over a key number. so normally, around key numbers like 3 and 7, you'll see the +3.5 and +7.5 having more juice, as the money comes in it tends to make it settle back down to the key number (3, 7). I hope that made sense.


example: -6.5 (-120) , +6.5 (+100)

-7.5 (+100), +7.5 (-120)


It's even more important in the NFL, as 25% of NFL games end up winning by 3. So 3 is a HUGE number for spreads. You'll see lots of crazy juice around 2.5, 3, 3.5 in the nfl.

dude how hard is it

+100 means 100 to win 100. +200 means 100 to win 200. +300 means 100 to win +300. -200 means 200 to win 100. -300 means 300 to win 100.

This is exactly what I was getting at. No one is going to want to pay out a ratio of 12/10 on something that has a small chance of occurring. 11/10 is really no difference.



It's even more important in the NFL, as 25% of NFL games end up winning by 3. So 3 is a HUGE number for spreads. You'll see lots of crazy juice around 2.5, 3, 3.5 in the nfl.

Ya I am most use to NFL games, which is why college spreads seem crazy. That's why I was saying earlier, spread shoulda been +10.5 at -110 or even money at +7.5.

-150 = 66.7% return, but the rest you have correct. I guess you understand the math, but you the way lines move you aren't aware of. When spreads go up or down, it's usually still going to be -110 on either side. That's what you were confused about. Just because the spread drops 2 points, doesn't mean it's going to pay more/less than before. You snooze you lose. Lines fluctuate like crazy. Injuries, rumors, big money coming in on one side, etc.

Example: The okie state vs Troy line opened up at -7.5 last sunday, it moved all the way up to -14. Guess what, the juice was -110 no matter where you happened to catch it.

You can catch a new line mid game. Although, I don't know much about the legality of said bets.

all the sportsbooks are located overseas. If you're using an A-rated site you have nothing to worry about, your money is as safe as it is in your own local bank account.
