The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Lions +150
- Falcons -115
The Lions are considered underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +150), paying out $250 total for a $100 bet ($150 in winnings). The Falcons are the favorite in this matchup, requiring a $115 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
