Understanding the Frisco Betting Odds
The point spread represents the number of points by which the favored team is expected to win the game. For example, if Team A is favored by 6.5 points, they need to win by at least 7 points to cover the spread. Conversely, if Team B is the underdog by 6.5 points, they can lose the game by up to 6 points and still cover the spread.
The moneyline indicates the odds assigned to each team to win the game outright, regardless of the point spread. Positive odds represent the underdog, while negative odds represent the favorite. For instance, if Team A has a moneyline of -200, a bettor would need to wager $200 to win $100 if Team A wins. Conversely, if Team B has a moneyline of +150, a bettor would win $150 for a $100 wager if Team B wins.
The over/under, also known as the total, predicts the combined number of points scored by both teams in the game. Bettors can wager on whether the total points scored will be over or under the set line by the sportsbook.
Frisco Bowl Betting Example With Odds
In last year’s matchup, the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) went against the San Diego State Aztecs. They were at -140 on the moneyline as the favorite, with UTSA at +120. Therefore, bettors needed to wager $140 on the Aztecs to win $100 but were only required to wager $100 to win $120 if betting on UTSA, who was the underdog.
San Diego State was a 2.5-point favorite and had no problem covering the spread after winning by 14 points. With the odds at -110 on both sides, a successful bet on UTSA to cover the spread or win outright would have paid bettors the same as a wager on SDSU to win by three points or more.
The over/under for the 2021 Frisco Bowl was 49, meaning that a bet on the combined total of points scored between the two teams had to be more than 49 for the over to hit, or less than 49 for a bet on the under to win. A combined score of exactly 49 points results in a push, in which case the bet is voided, and the original stake is refunded to the bettor.
SDSU was victorious by winning 38-24, meaning any wager on the Aztecs would have been a winning bet, while any straight bet on UTSA would have lost. A bet on the over would also have been a winner, as the total score was 62 points.
