    Question about the payout on a Spread bet.

    I don't do sports betting and actually am not going to start. But I was looking at the odds for Sundays Hawks game and didn't understand how the bet would pay out. Here's the line from the Mirage - SEA-6 -105 SDG+6 -115. I get that Seattle is a 6 point favorite and has to win by 7 to win the bet, what I don't understand is how the payout works. I think I have to bet $105 to win $100. Does that mean when I cash in the ticket they payout $205?

    Thanks,
    Cro

    Yes, that is exactly what it means. You can more or less bet any amount and they use the magic of fractions.
