Our Podcast featured three guests and me the host.  We began by defining the necessary betting terms to understand the podcast.  We explained the lines were from Bovada.com. Here is a breakdown of the terms and games we explored. 

Terms

  • Get – If you are getting points then your team has to win by a margin    greater than that spread line, represented by a minus sign
