Point Spread Bets

The point spread is among the most popular ways to bet on college basketball. When oddsmakers give points to the matchup underdog, it helps them create a more balanced betting market. This is critical when two mismatched teams play each other. The Northwestern Wildcats will be favorites when their point spread line has a minus sign “-” before the number. They’ll be underdogs when the line has a plus sign “+” before the number.

The odds follow the point spread line. Standard betting odds are -110. That means you’ll risk $110 to win $100. Sometimes, the odds might be higher or lower depending on the betting action for or against the Wildcats. In most cases, you’ll see odds for each side range from -105 to -115.

Moneyline Bets

Pick either the favorite or the underdog team to win. Unlike the point spread, you’re simply picking the outright winner. Always compare point spread vs moneyline payouts. Sometimes, it can be more profitable to bet Northwestern when they’re a moneyline underdog, especially if you think they’ll win the game outright.

Moneyline favorites have a minus sign “-” before their number. This number indicates how much you risk to win $100. For example, if the Wildcats are -250 favorites, you would risk $250 to win $100. When the Wildcats are overwhelming favorites, you may see their moneyline value exceed -600.

Moneyline underdogs have a plus sign “+” before their number. This number indicates how much you win if you risk $100. If Northwestern is a +350 underdog, you would risk $100 to win $350. If the Wildcats are big underdogs, their moneyline might be +500 or more.

Betting an obvious favorite to win isn’t always a good idea, even if it’s for the Wildcats to win the game. Betting big moneyline favorites means you risk a large portion of your bankroll for a small profit. Sometimes it’s more economical to bet the point spread instead. Be sure to consider all your options before placing a wager on Northwestern or their opponent.

Total Bets

Decide whether the sum of both teams’ final scores will be over or under the sportsbook’s total line.

Over will be abbreviated as “o” and under will be abbreviated as “u”. Look for each side’s odds to the right of each letter. Most often, both sides will have -110 standard odds, though sometimes the exact odds values may vary. Less commonly, odds values could be well under or well above -110, most commonly ranging from -105 to -115.

With total bets, you must consider the ability of the Wildcats and their opponent to put points on the board. Carefully determine whether the game will be a shootout between two capable offenses, or a low-scoring strategic affair between two agile defensive teams.

High-scoring games typically will get higher total lines and more expensive over odds. This contrasts to lower-scoring games, which will get lower total lines and more expensive under odds.
