Never did I ever think this would happen ever. The team you choose only has to win the game, not win by a certain number of points. It's easiest to picture the number 100 sitting in the middle of these two values. It's a simple way to have the risk-reward scenario. In totals betting, you are predicting whether the combined total score will be more than or less than the total.
In reality, it's a number chosen by the oddsmaker that he feels will encourage an equal number of people to wager on the football underdog and the pigskin favorite. The negative value -13. Betting on the favorite means the team must win by at least fourteen points to cover the spread.

Always treated as a singular, though obviously a plural (cf. Either I'd pull through or I wouldn't, and the odds werewell, I didn't say much. The case of Yates was by all odds the most complex and bewildering of the four.Last week, Garoppolo looked poised and in command of the offense against a much better Bears defense, throwing for 293 yards (and an interception that could rightfully have been called a fumble) and moving the offense effectively.
This time out, he'll have another full week of practice under his belt and that increased comfort level could translate to 300-plus yards and a couple of scores. James Koh: Rex Burkhead, for the third week in a row, will score two touchdownsThe Patriots should control this game versus Miami pretty handily and Burkhead has become a staple in this offense.
Big lead, running back, you do the math. Miami has given up the fifth-most fantasy points to running backs over the last four weeks and while most are expecting a good game from Sexy Rexy in the Flexy, I'm boldly predicting a massive game to the tune of 100-plus total yards and two total touchdowns.
Michael Fabiano: Fabiano: Russell Wilson will score 18 or more fantasy points in Jacksonville. This might not seem that bold, but the Jaguars haven't allowed a single quarterback to hit the 18-point mark in standard scoring leagues this season. That could have some fantasy fans worried about Wilson's prospects, but let's take a look at some of the signal-callers who have faced Jacksonville.
Joe Flacco and Ryan Mallett. Josh McCown (before he was putting up huge numbers). Blaine Gabbert (and he scored 17. Their defense simply hasn't faced a quarterback of Wilson's skill set, and he's the highest-scoring player in fantasy football. Wilson might not give you 30 fantasy points, but he won't give you a stinker, either.
Cynthia Frelund: Marshawn Lynch is a top-10 running back this week.
I know Chiefs' cornerback Marcus Peters isn't playing and Raiders' wideouts Michael Crabtree and potentially even Amari Cooper could both return.
However, in addition to being vulnerable to the pass, the Chiefs defense has also given up the most rushes of 10-plus and the second-most rushes of four-plus yards. I'm not saying receivers in this game aren't a good choice, but I don't think that means it's not a ground-heavy game script. Adam Rank: Rank: DeShone Kizer finishes as a Top-11 quarterback nfl. But how about a little love for his quarterback, DeShone Kizer.
He's showing some signs. The completion percentage is low. It's somewhere in the neighborhood of Mike Trout's batting average (And how about Shohei Ohtani joining that loaded team. I can't want to see how fantasy baseball handles a guy who pitches and bats). But he's got a good matchup this week. The Packers are 26th in the league against the pass.
They rank 28th on third down. Kizer has some pretty intriguing weapons around him. Matt "Franchise" Franciscovich: Andre Ellington finishes as a top-15 PPR running back. It's bold because Lamar Miller is the obvious primary running back for Houston, and will get the majority of the volume as a runner. But we saw Ellington play 44 snaps last week, 77 percent of which came in the slot.
Houston needed him to play wide receiver because they lost Bruce Ellington, Braxton Miller and tight end C. Fiedorowicz to injury in the game, and all three of them are out again this week. Ellington had five catches for 56 yards, and I wouldn't be surprised if that workload doubles this week.
He's a great value in DFS formats and should be, at worst, third in line for targets behind DeAndre Hopkins and Stephen Anderson against the 49ers.
Matt Harmon: Carson Wentz and Jared Goff combine for less than 25 fantasy points.
