At theScore we want to make sure all of our fans have access to all of the information they need, including Odds, Totals and other important wagering information.
theScore presents info for Odds and Totals (North American sports) and European Gambling Odds (Soccer).
What does “T” mean? In sports betting one of the most common bets placed is on the over/under on the projected combined score for a particular matchup. When a “T” is indicated, the number following it is the projected total for the two teams. Bettors place a bet on whether or not they think the total will go under or over this number. For example, a “T: 40.5” means that if you bet under, the maximum number of points in the entire game can’t exceed 40. If a bettor wagered on the over, the total would have to be 41 or more. If the total combined score is the same as the number, it’s considered a “push” and the bettor gets their money back.
What does the “-” number mean? When you see a team with a “-” and a number beside it (only North American sports) that indicates which team is the favourite going into that matchup. “-” numbers always appear beside the favourite. What the “-” number refers to is how much you would need to wager to make 100 in profit. For example, if a team is a -125 favourite that means you would need to wager 125 to win 100. If a team is a -600 favourite that means you would need to wager 600 to win 100. The greater the favourite, the more you would need to wager to win 100.
What do the “+” numbers mean (Soccer)? When you see the “+” numbers beside a team that indicates their odds to win based on the return you would receive on a bet of 1.00. The larger the number, the greater the underdog due to the greater return on your wager. For example, if you see a team with a “+3.30” beside it and in the same matchup the other team has a “+2.15”, the team with the higher number is the underdog because the bettor would receive a higher payout per 1.00 bet.
