How Do I Place a Point Spread Bet on My Sports Betting App?

Last Updated:

To place a point spread bet on your sports betting app, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open your sports betting app and log in to your account.
  2. Select the sport you want to bet on and navigate to the game you are interested in.
  3. Find the point spread betting market for that game.
  4. Choose the team you want to bet on. The team that is listed with a negative number is the favorite, while the team listed with a positive number is the underdog.
  5. Enter your wager amount in the betting slip.
  6. Confirm the details of your bet, including the team you are betting on, the point spread, and the amount you are wagering.
  7. Place your bet and wait for the outcome of the game.

It’s important to note that the point spread represents the margin of victory that the favorite is expected to win by. If you bet on the favorite, they must win by more than the point spread for your bet to be a winner. If you bet on the underdog, they must either win the game outright or lose by less than the point spread for your bet to be a winner.
