Sports Spread Betting

What is Spread Betting -

Sports spread betting provides you with the ultimate betting thrill and challenges your skill, judgement and knowledge of sport.

The sports spread betting bookmaker, make predictions on various aspects of sporting or topical events. You then decide whether that prediction has been pitched too high or too low.

You will notice that their predictions are presented in the form of two prices. This is a range known as the ‘spread’ and you bet low at the first named price and if you wish to bet high you would do so at the second price.

For example, if someone asked you to guess their age, you might say ‘somewhere between 35 and 38 years old’. In the same way, when a spread betting firm makes a prediction, they allow a range. If you were betting on this prediction you would bet low at 35 years or bet high at 38 years.

How do I win or Lose?
What you win or lose depends on the stake size you choose and how right or wrong you are. The Spread betting firm might predict that the 1st goal in a match between Wigan and Blackburn will be scored in the 37th minute and consequently set a spread of 36 - 38 minutes.

One client who believes there is bound to be an early goal goes LOW at 36 minutes while another who thinks that both defences will be at their best goes HIGH at 38 minutes. If the 1st goal is scored in the 20th minute, the client who went LOW at 36 minutes wins 16 times his stake (36 minutes take away 20 minutes = 16) while the client who went HIGH at 38 minutes loses 18 times his stake.
