What does it mean when
you open up the newspaper, look at the NFL football odds, and see
Green Bay (-2) vs. Washington? The number listed in parenthesis are
the NFL odds. In this case, when the game between
Green Bay and Washington is over, 2 points are subtracted from Green
Bay's score. This adjusted score determines the winner. For example,
if the final score is Green Bay - 21, Washington - 20, Green Bay has
obviously won the game. However, for betting purposes, we subtract 2
points from Green Bay and the final score for betting purposes is
Green Bay - 19, Washington - 20. If you bet on Green Bay to win, you
lose the bet even though Green Bay won the game. This is how NFL
Football Odds work.

NFL point spread.
NFL odds makers add points to, or subtract points from, the two
teams involved in a contest as a way of making the score even. If
one team is thought to be worse than the other, they will get points
added to their score. If a team is thought to be better than the
other, they will have points subtracted from their score.
