    help?

    can someone help me out here? what does it mean to "cover the spread"?

    and what's the difference between

    minnesota (-7) @ chicago

    and

    minnesota @ chicago (+7)

    thanks

    if the spread is Vikings -7, that means that means if you bet on the Vikings they must beat the bears by at least 8 points. A 7 point Viking victory is considered a push, and a six point (or less) victory, or a Viking loss would pay off anyone who bet on the bears. If the Vikings outscore by 8+ points they covered the spread, and if bears lose by less than 7 then the bears covered the spread. Hope this helps...

    Vikes have to win by 8 or more. Covered

    If it is exactly 7 points, then it is a push. You pay 10%, the big.

    Less than 7 you lose.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    I am not sure about the + and - being any different.

    I want some input too.

    Both the + and - say the same thing, Vikings are giving 7 points and bears are getting 7 points.
