Over Under 7.5 Wins

36 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

That is what the sportsbooks have us at. We are -135 for the over and +115 for the under. So they like us at 7 or 8 wins. Doesnt look like a bad deal to me at all. What do you guys think about this? New Orleans is set at 10, Atlanta at 9 and Tampa at 6. Philly is set at 10 and Dallas is at 8.5. Minnesota is at 6 for perspective.

as someone who has never bet on sports, can someone explain the -135 +115 numbers to me? I've never understood what they mean.

Basically a straight +100 or -100 means the payout is even. The team that is favored will be the minus and the underdog will be the plus. So in this case the -135 is a ratio. If they are -200 they will pay out 1 to 2 or 50 dollars on 100 dollars. So -135 is like one third of the way between 50 and one hundred dollars. It is easy to think of it in terms of betting 100 dollars. If you bet one hundred dollars on the Panthers to go over 7.5 wins you would get about 70 dollars. If you bet on them to go under you would get 115 dollars for a 100 dollar bet. So the casino is saying that the Panthers are a slight favorite to go over 7.5 wins, but +115 against -130 is basically a toss up in sports betting.

I think that the line is pretty low. I would be willing to bet we go over 7.5 wins.

If you bet 135 on a -135 you win 100 bucks

You bet a 100 on a +115 you win 115 bucks

Easiest way too explain it. I think thats right.
