Spread Betting (Handicaps) is a type of bet that will offer a virtual handicap to respective teams. Handicaps will always be either positive or negative.
A minus symbol (-) is given to the favorite team, which has a handicap disadvantage.
A plus symbol (+) assigned to the underdog team, which has a handicap advantage.
The easiest way to understand how the handicap applies to your bet is looking at it as follows: at the end of the match, you add or deduct respectively depending if it was a positive or negative handicap applied to the team you selected to bet on.
IMPORTANT: The selected Handicap always applies to one of the teams and you should never apply handicaps to both teams as it will create wrong handicaps comparing to the priced-up lines.
