What is the Point Spread and Pythagorean Theorems betting strategy

Among the three most common ways to bet on the NFL or college football, and the most popular bet type used by handicappers and tipsters for NFL football picks and college football predictions, is the point spread.

The point spread is an equalizer in sports betting: by using a point spread (ex. New York Giants to beat the Green Bay Packers by X points or more), that a heavily favored team must beat over simply winning.

The point spread  allows for a level of comfort in choosing the underdog, who can lose by a three-point (or X point) margin while the bettor or sports investor still wins his bet.
