Probably a very simple question to most but I'd like some clarification. With a points spread I assume that a team with a plus value has to beat the other by at least that amount or more in order to win?
For example if the Vikes are shown as +3 against GB then a three point win or more would win the bet, less than three or a loss would lose the bet ?
Like I said probably simple for most but just wondered.
If the Vikings are listed at +3, then the Vikings *get* 3 points on the bet.
So - you win the bet if the Vikings win the game or lose by 3 or fewer.
If the Vikings are listed as -7, then the Vikings are a 7-point favorite and must win by more than 7 for you to win the bet.
Yes - it's counter-intuitive.
