What are the odds on this and what are the odds on that? If you pay attention, you’ll hear sports betting references regularly in everyday conversation and even more so when watching sports or TV. “This is a big upset in the making as Team X was an underdog of 14 points today,” an announcer will say.
These days, you're probably seeing scores and odds everywhere — on the television, in the newspaper, online, and on your phones. But seeing scores and odds and understanding what they mean — and more importantly how to profit from them — is where we come in.
Below, we break down where you can find the best scores and odds, how to read sports odds, and all the different sports you can bet on. If you're looking for a more comprehensive tutorial, check out our how to bet on sports page and if you're ready to get started, go sign up at one of our top sportsbooks:

How Do I Bet On Scores And Odds?
Not everyone understands what -13.5 means in the NBA betting world and more still are unfamiliar with a moneyline such as -135. We take sports odds seriously and have devoted our entire site to gathering them, explaining them and educating people on what is a “good line” and a “bad line.”
There are two main ways to look at sports odds, and that's a moneyline bet and a spread bet. A moneyline bet is a simple pick on who will win the game and probably the best place for a novice bettor to begin. We go in depth on what a moneyline bet is at our What Is A Moneyline Bet And How Does it Work? page.
The other main bet, which is a little more complicated relative to scores and odds, is a spread bet. A spread requires the favored team to win by a certain amount of points and the underdog team to win, or just lose by fewer than a set amount of points. We also explain a spread in depth at our What Is A Point Spread And How Does It Work? page.
When you feel more comfortable and have a better understanding of how sports odds work, check out the game previews and matchup reports on your favorite team or league and then investigate the best places to bet on sports as well. If you're still not quite sure how sports odds work, below is an example for scores and odds you'd find for an NFL game.
NFL Scores And Odds
Below is an example of moneyline odds and spread odds for a fictional NFL game. The top sports odds are in a moneyline format, and the bottom a spread:
After the game, if you look at the scores and odds and see that the Cowboys beat the Eagles 27-24, you would've cashed $147.62 in winnings if you bet $100 on the Dallas moneyline (-210). That's your initial $100 back, plus $47.62 in profit. Check out our odds calculator to help you determine potential payouts on all your bets. A spread bet on the Cowboys, however, would not have won because they didn't win by over 4.5 points.
