The Spread is the number of points by which a favorite is expected to win.
When betting on a favorite, you will win if the favored team "covers" the spread, meaning they win by a greater number of points than the spread has specified. If you bet on an underdog, you will win if the underdog team loses by fewer than the spread (or wins the game altogether).
