FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In the Betting Trends section, how are the percentages calculated? What do the 3 columns, Side, Money, & Total mean?

The Betting Trends show you the percentage of money that has been bet on either side of each bet, as reported by online sports gaming sites Sports.com and Sportsbook.com.

The three columns represent the 3 possible wagers for each game:
Side:
Side is the Point Spread Line ("against the spread") or in Baseball, the Run Line.
Money:
This is the “Money Line” bet where bookmakers adjust the price of the wager instead of using a point spread to even the odds.
Total:
Total is also known as Over/Under, where the wager is based on the total points scored by both teams.

What does it mean when the odds are highlighted?

How can I find odds for past dates?

On the right side of the ScoresAndOdds.com homepage is a calendar. You can find data as far back as October 1, 2006. Just navigate to the month and year you are looking for and then click the specific date in the calendar.


Sometimes the line for a team has extra numbers after it like -8 -15 or 36u15. What do those numbers mean?

When placing a sports wager “against the spread”, bookmakers usually charge a percentage of the bet as a fee, sometimes called the “juice”. Customarily, the juice is 10%, so regardless of whether you bet on the favorite or the underdog, you’d expect to bet $110 to win $100. When there is too much action on one side of a bet, the bookmaker will want to try to drive more bets to the other side, and there are 2 ways to do it: they can change the pointspread, or – if they feel strongly about the spread – they can simply change the “juice”, the cost of placing the bet. So when you see a line like -8 -15 it means that the point spread is still 8, but to bet on the favorite, you’d now have to bet $115 to win $100. But that also means that you could now bet the underdog and only have to wager $105 to win $100.

The same principle applies to betting on the point total of the game, the “Over/Under”. When you see 36u15, it means that if you bet that the total points will be under 36, you’d have to wager $115 to win $100, but if you bet the over, you’d only have to bet $105 to win $100.

Here’s a page with a full explanation of how to read lines.
