If you love to bet on sports, then you may have a few tips to help you succeed. The first tip is to know the difference between the spread and the moneyline. Spreads are the number of points that a team is expected to win by during a particular game. Moneylines are the amount of points that a team is expected to win without any specific team name. Spreads, on the other hand, are the number of points that a team can win by under or over the total. A favorite team must win to cover the spread, while an underdog must win to win the game.
