Types of sports betting:
When one is betting in a moneyline bet, they are able to win without any spread point method. It is considered as the most basic wager in the types of betting where one bet on the team hoping that it will win, and when the team wins they win. For example, There’s a match between team A and team B, where team A were at -250 odds means if the bettor decides to bet on the former team he has to bet 250$ for every 100$ he wishes to win and team B at 200, where bettor will gain 200$ if he bets 100$ on the team. This betting is mostly popular in the field of baseball and hockey.
It’s a betting line where the team is required to win by a specific margin in order to provide gain to the bettor. Here, a betting line is set where one can either bet on their favorite (mostly likely to win the game) and give up the points or can bet on the underdog (mostly likely to lose the game) and can gain the points. The favorite has to gain the points more than the set point spread in order to win the bet. The underdog has to count points less than the set point spread. In time of winning bet the bettor would buy and in time of losing one would sell it.
For example, the spread of football was 3-3.5, which implies that if the bettor expects more goals than spread goals, they will buy the favorite team to win the bet. And those bettors who expect the number of goals to be less than the spread goals, will sell their underdog team to win the bet.
This type of bet is mostly popular for football and basketball games.

Even today its popularity has reached in other fields such as many entertainment events, the Oscar Awards, The Grammy Awards and then in many other reality shows too.
