Understanding UFL Betting Basics: Point Spread, Total, and Moneyline

When it comes to UFL sports betting, there are three main types of bets you’ll hear about: Point Spread, Total (Over/Under), and Moneyline. Let’s break these down into simple terms so you can understand how betting works.

1. Point Spread

The point spread levels the playing field between two teams by applying a handicap to the favored team. For instance, if Team A is favored to win by 7 points (-7), they need to win by more than 7 points for a bet on them to win. The lower the spread, the closer the game odds makers think it will be.

2. Total (Over/Under)

Total betting or Over/Under involves wagering on the combined score of both teams, deciding whether it will be over or under a specified amount. If the total is set at 48.5, betting “over” means you think the total score will be OVER 48.5 points.

3. Moneyline

Moneyline betting is picking which team will win the game, with odds determining the payout. Betting on the favorite might have odds of -150, meaning you’d need to bet $150 to win $100, while betting on the underdog could have odds of +130, offering a $130 win on a $100 bet.

With the example of D.C. at -278 and San Antonio at +225:

  • If you bet $100 on D.C. (the favorite), with odds of -278, you would need to bet $278 to win $100. For a $10 bet, you would win approximately $3.60 ($10 * 100 / 278).
  • If you bet $100 on San Antonio (the underdog), with odds of +225, a win would earn you $225. For a $10 bet, you would win $22.50 ($10 * 225 / 100).

Betting Lingo

These are terms you might hear from the betting pros thoughout the season

take the points – in the context of a bet for the game where the Birmingham Stallions are playing against the Arlington Renegades and the point spread is Birmingham -3.5, it means you’re betting on the Arlington Renegades to cover the spread. In simpler terms, you believe the Renegades will either win the game outright or lose by fewer than 3.5 points. Taking the points refers to betting on the underdog in the point spread.

cover the spread – The team you bet on must win by more than the point spread or lose by less than the point spread. If you bet Birmingham to cover the -3.5 point spread, they need to win by more than 3.5 points. Conversely, if you bet on Arlington, they need to either win the game outright or lose by fewer than 3.5 points for your bet to win.

You would say, i pick Birmingham to cover the spread, ie win by more than 3.5 points. On the flip side, you could say. I pick Arlington to cover the spread, ie win the game or not lose by more than 3.54 points.

betting on the moneyline – it just means picking the outright winner of the game.
