Point spread
- also known as the line or spread, it is generally thought of as the predicted margin of victory for one team. In reality, it's a number chosen by the oddsmaker that he feels will encourage an equal number of people to wager on the football underdog and the pigskin favorite. The negative value -3.5 indicates that team is favored by 3.5 points. The positive value +3.5 indicates that team is the underdog by 3.5 points. Betting on the favorite means the team must win by at least four points to cover the spread. The underdog team can lose by three points and still cover the spread.

Moneyline ? form of wagering typically used in baseball and hockey, which replaces the point spread, but increasingly popular in football, especially for underdog picks. The team you choose only has to win the game, not win by a certain number of runs or goals. The negative value still indicates the favorite (-150) and the positive value indicates the underdog (+130). It's easiest to picture the number 100 sitting in the middle of these two values. For example, if you want to bet a -150 favorite, you would wager $150 in order to win $100. On the football underdog, you would risk $100 and win $130 if the underdog wins. It's a simple way to have the risk-reward scenario.

Total ? also widely referred to as the over/under is the predicted number of points oddsmakers believe will be scored in the game by both teams combined. The concept is simple ? handicap how each team stacks up against each other on offense and defense and predict whether there will lots of scoring or not much. In totals betting, you are predicting whether the combined total score will be more than or less than the total.

Futures ? wagers made in predicting an event in the future like next year's BCS championship. Oddsmakers produce lines during the year, depending on the strength or weakness of teams, then offer wagers on each team to win. For example, a league's top team may be +150 to win the championship. That means a $100 wager would pay $150 profit. However, a poor team might be +3000, indicating they are not expected to win and a $100 would pay $3,000 as a huge longshot.

If you have what it takes to be emotionless when it comesmbling but as any other investment you have in your port to the outcome of games and veiw your sports betting not as gafolio, then you will be amazed at the huge R.O.I
.(return on investment) potential that a smart bettor has. Here is the breakdown of the investment.

first off, you must have a bankroll set aside exclusively for betting. This is your investment. Here's the part that shocks most ameteurs...Picking 55% winners over the course of 850-1000 plays (an average of 2/4 plays per day for 1 year)  will double your money. Hard to beleive? Not only is it true it also protects you against prolonged losing streaks that are common in sports betting. Let me explain.
 55% winners over 1000 plays breaks down as follow...550 wins 450 losses. Add 45 to the losses for the vig and do the math...550-450-45=55 net wins. Since you will be playing over 30 plays per week you don't want to risk more than 1.5-2%% of your bankroll per game.Let's say your BR is $50,000. That makes you a $1000 per game player. It is IMPERATIVE not to move off of that amount NO MATTER WHAT.
That's the size player you chose to be when you made your investment. So after 1000 plays at 55% winners nets you $55,000, more than doubling your investment. 
See if Meryll Lynch has a mutual fund with that kind of return.
 With today's technology it is fairly easy to come up with a "good" number on a game by running recent stats and trends through computers along with injury reports and wheather conditions.

All of this same information used to make the line is readily available to everyone online. That's why, as mentioned earlier, we're not conventional handicappers..
     grind it outThis method is one used by many professional sports handicappers. Generally, you play 1-4 game at a time and wager the same amount on each one. If you can be correct 54%-60% of the time, over a length of time you can be a winner. Donft get us wrong, itis not as easy as it sounds but by using this strategy you will be rewarded with most of your correct predictions.
 Don't forget the #1 rule to this strategy is discipline.

Mark Cuban Supports Sports Investing   
In 2004, billionaire Mark Cuban wrote on his blog, his vision to create a sports gambling hedge fund. Cuban makes some great points here paralleling the similarities between gambling markets and financial markets. He gives us three very important points to consider.

The first major point that Cuban makes is that gambling markets attracts a greater amount emotional money than do financial markets. Why is this so important? Well, we know that emotional money tends to make more bad ?rash? decisions. So consequently, the more emotional money in the market, the better value it creates.

Another great point that Cuban emphasizes is the amount of data that?s available in sports betting vs the amount of ?true? data in the financial markets. Financial data tends to be more skewed and long-term. While sports betting data is more readily available, relevant and current. This means that if you know which data is significant you clearly have an advantage in the sports betting market.

The third and most important argument Mr. Cuban makes is the efficiency of the sports betting market. Cuban writes ?how efficient can a market be where the majority of investors expect to lose money.? If this statement doesn?t scream ?there?s money to be made here? then nothing will get your attention. Investing with others who are expecting to lose money is definitely a market worth exploring.

So as you can see by billionaire Mark Cuban piece, there are huge opportunities to make legitimate returns in the sports betting market. As stated, he highlights the fact that the biggest and brightest clearly have an edge. Now it just becomes a matter of which data is relevant to winning you money and how you go about leveraging that information.
