What is the Point Spread in NBA betting?
The Point Spread is the most popular market to bet on in an NBA game. With games rarely featuring two evenly matched basketball teams, the Point Spread is a market the sportsbooks use to ‘level up’ the event.
Rather than having to win the game (as is the case with the MoneyLine), with the Point Spread the team deemed to be the favorite must do so by a specified number of points (the spread) for a wager on them to win.
In this example, the favorite team might have a Point Spread of say -5.5 (the half-point is sometimes referred to as a “hook”, which ensures there is no possibility of a push (or tie). That means that they would need to win by a 6-point margin or more for a wager on them to win.
In this instance, the underdog would have a Point Spread of +5.5, meaning that they would have to either win the game or to lose it by no more than 5 points for a wager on them to win.
