Sports Betting Football GamblingSports betting football gambling has been around for years. People in the office may share a friendly wager on a game or they may actually go to a betting facility to do so. Either way you look at it sports football gambling has gone on in lots of different shapes and sizes and it will more then likely continue even on a small scale. Two of the most popular ways of sports betting football gambling are betting lines and football point spreads.
Gambling lines are merely sports betting lines that determine how much you need to bet to win a specific dollar amount or the amount you will win if you bet a specific dollar amount. The negative number determines the amount you must wager in order to win a certain amount of money and the positive number indicates what you will win if you bet only a certain amount of money. This is typical of sports betting football gambling. For example, the NFL gambling line may be positive 210 (+210). This indicates that if you bet two hundred dollars on that team and they win, you will win two hundred and ten dollars along with your original bet. If the NFL gambling line is a negative 210 (-210), you will need to bet two hundred and ten dollars on that team just to win an additional two hundred dollars.

A point spread is read as positive and negative numbers. If a team is favored to win then they are favored by a negative number point spread. This indicates that the favored team must win by more then the negative number in order for the bettor to win their bet. For example is the Chicago Bears are favored to win over the Green Bay Packers by 7 then the point spread may be indicated as Chicago -7 vs. Green Bay. Another way to show these gambling odds is to show Chicago vs. Green Bay +7. Odds can be expressed in many ways.
