If you choose to bet on the favorite team, she will have to win by at least the number that is indicated. For example, team A is favorite to + 3, she would win by at least 3 points so you can win your bet. Conversely, if you want to bet on the underdog team (say team B), it will have to lose by at least 3 points if it is a number that is indicated next- To eliminate ties, homes are often go half.

This is what sets the odds for each team, but is inversely proportional to what would have been the difference and is indicated by a + for the choice of the underdog team and by a less for the favorite team. If the team is favorite at-180 and team B is + 120 underdog, team A will give you 10:18 sides while team B will give you quotes from 12:10. For each $180 bet on A team you win $100 or lose $180, but for every $ 100 you bet on Team B, you will earn $ 120 or lose $ 100.
