Although money can be made on the Stallions moneyline and spread, legal online betting sites are offering plenty more value in alternate lines and winning range. In order to win a $100 profit from the moneyline, $300 would need to be bet. However, splitting that $300 into other places could turn out much more profitable.
Winning Range & Alternate Line
The winning ranges that Bovada is offering range in 5-6 point ranges. Taking the Stallions to win by 1-6 points (+275) or even 7-12 points (+375) rather than the normal 6.5-point spread.
On the alternate lines, the last $100 would be split putting $50 on the Stallions -3.5 (-150) and Stallions -7 (+120). This guarantees a profit regardless of if the spread goes over or under 6.5 points.
$100 on the 1-6 margin would payout $275 while the $50 on the 3.5-point spread pays out $33 for a $308 profit.
The $100 bet on the 7-12 margin pays out $375 while the -7 alternate line profits $60 for a total profit margin of $435.
If the 1-6 winning margin and 3.5-point spread are the only ones to cash, after accounting for the $150 loss on the other two bets, the profit would still be $158.
An even bigger payout comes with the 7-12 margin and -7 alternate line being that if both of those cash, the 3.5-point alternate line would cash as well. After accounting for the $100 loss on the 1-6 range bet, bettors would still be walking away with $368 in profit.
Where Things Are Leaning
On the statistical side of things, the Stallions are 5-0 which is impressive, however, their winning margins are not where some might expect. In their five games, three of them fell under the 1–6-point range while one was in the 7-12 range.
For the Panthers, it’s a similar story as three of their losses have come in the 1-6 range as well while another one came between 7-12 points.
