Money Line Wager

Money Lines are the simplest form of sports gambling. The team that the bettor wagers on just has to win the game. The bet is not subject to a point spread. The amount he may win is determined by the money line.

Money Line rules are as follows:

For example, the bettor wagered on Miami (-160) to beat Buffalo (+260). He must bet $160 to win $100 if Miami wins the game. His friend bets on Buffalo. His friend must bet $100 to win $260 if Buffalo wins. The following table displays the results of four different winning Money Line bets.
