What is Spread Betting?
Sports spread betting roots comes from the City's financial buying and selling markets. The concept was applied to sports betting as an alternative to the fixed odds markets.
The main difference between sports spread betting and the fixed odds variety is that your return/losses are more fluid than the pre-determined outcome of a fixed odds bet.
For example in sports spread betting every market has a two-way price and you buy or sell against the spread.
So, say your betting on a football match and the bookmaker says the spread for goals in a match is 2.5 - 3. You then decide to bet higher (BUY) or lower (SELL) than the spread (2.5 - 3).
If you decide to bet £10 that their will be less goals in the game than what the spread is offering (2.5 - 3) then you Sell at £10 against the spread, if the game finishes 0-0, 1-0 or 1-1 then you'll win, if there are more than 3 goals in the game then that's when losses start to happen.
Please note that losses may exceed deposits!
