# Need Explanation

 Author: [Covers Help] Topic: Need Explanation gizmoTek PM gizmoTekJoined: Feb 2017Posts: 13 Prospect #1Posted: 2/27/2017 6:16:14 AMI neeed an explanation on something. I took Liverpool on an alternate spread of -0.75 with a (-127) payout instead of the -0.5 spread with a (-165) payout on my sportsbook. Can someone explain to me the difference between -0.5 and -0.75 in soccer. To me, they both seem like the same thing which is a a Moneyline spread, but why is the payout for taking the -0.75 line better than the -0.5 line? Liverpool would have to win by one goal to cover the -0.5 spread. Isn't this the case for a -0.75 spread also or am i missing something? Posted using a mobile device.

If the team wins by 2 or more goals, you win the full bet amount. So the wager is basically broken down into two bets: one at -0.5 and one at -1. Hope that helps.- CT
