The betting scheme where the bettor lays a price not points. For example, a five point favorite may be minus 200 on the moneyline. This means that the bettor has to lay 200 to win 100 but the favorite just has to win straight up - not cover the spread.
The moneyline is an indicator of the odds that a team will win. A negative moneyline represents how many dollars you would need to bet to win $100. A positive money line represents how many dollars you would win if you bet $100.
The amount you must bet to win 100 or the amount you win if you bet 100
