UNDERSTAND SPREADS!

THE BASICS - Understanding the spread totals

+ is the underdog
- is the favorite

Example for the Super Bowl

Baltimore Ravens +3.5 
San Francisco 49ers -3.5 

Okay, based off what I already told you, we know that + is the underdog, therefore in this situation Ravens are the underdog, and San Fran is the favorite.

What does being the underdog mean? Well, it’s simple. They are given points to make the game “equal”. 

So at the end of the game, ADD (remember it’s +) we add the 3.5 points to final score. So let say the Final Score is Ravens 17 49ers 20, we add the 3.5 to the Ravens 

17+3.5=20.5 so its now Ravens 20.5 to 49ers 20, therefore, with the spread, Ravens bettors WIN even though Ravens lost the game.

Obviously, if the Ravens WIN the game, we win the bet since they were the underdog. If the Ravens Lose the game, but by less than 3.5, Raven bettors will still WIN! 


ANY QUESTIONS?

It works the other too. So if we wanted to bet on the 49ers -3.5, that means they are GIVING points, which means they have to WIN by more than 3.5 points to win your bet.

So if the final score was Ravens 7 San Francisco 14

We take the MINUS number and subtract it from the final score. So San Fran 14-3.5 = 11.5 so for the spread its Ravens 7 San Fran 11.5, we WIN!

Cleveland Browns: Keys to Success in 2012

KEYS TO CLEVELAND SUCCESS IN 2012:

The Browns attempted to make vast improvements offensively, as they took Trent Richardson out of Alabama and Brandon Weeden from Oklahoma State in the first round.  Obviously, the Browns need improved quarterback play over Colt McCoy from last year and the Browns have already decided to go with Weeden as their starter.

Trent Richardson will likely be the number one running back on the roster, and should be a vast improvement over Peyton Hillis, who only averaged 3.6 yards per carry last season.   The Browns can go deep into the depth chart at the running back position but the Browns will be counting on Trent Richardson bring some of his magic from Alabama to the Cleveland offense in 2012.

The Cleveland defense ranked 10th in total defense and 2nd in passing defense, as they have had a surprisingly good secondary.  Unfortunately, the Browns are losing Mike Adams who accounted for 3 of the Browns 9 interceptions last season, so Cleveland will need someone to step up at the safety position.

Joe Haden had six interceptions alone in his rookie season in 2010, but he didn’t have any last season.  He will need to have a better season if the Browns are to make improvements in 2012.

Cleveland Browns: Shocking Stat

Shocking Stat:


The Browns struggled so much in the running game that 8 running backs compiled more yards individually than Cleveland’s top 3 rushers who combined for 1187 yards last season.  That explains why Cleveland took Trent Richardson with the third pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
