Often what they do is divide the team and put wager on both of them with equal amount so that the money is not lost and is within them. But this is not the case with people who just wish to earn big money through gambling. They plan strategies and do quite a lot of research before placing the wager. The wager amount is also very high in case of professional gamblers. They also read the sports betting lines before placing wager and here are some tips to help you understand and read them.

1. Each team participating in the sports has a number next to their name and that digit is called spread. Spread is the most popular line of betting. Here you will just not guess the wining or the losing team but you will also have to predict the gap between the wining and the losing team.

2. Money line is another betting strategy where you will find a negative and a positive sign. Positive sign means the amount that you are going to win and negative sign is the money that you need to put as wager. The money line is basically the last digit on the top row.

3. Over under is the bottom row and in this style you will not be predicting the winner or the loser team of the game but you will be placing your wager on the final score of the match. While doing this the first number that you will see is the score that you predicted and then is the amount that you have to begin with as wager.
