Money limit on sports betting?
What is the money limit on sports betting?
Like can you bet 1 million in in NFL game?
Also why does the score different matter?
Can’t you say like Falcons over eagles by 1 point? Why do people say like falcons over eagles by 10 points? Do you have to say more than 3 more something?

There is no universal money limit on sports betting, as it depends on the sportsbook, the specific event, and the type of bet you are placing. Many sportsbooks have maximum betting limits to protect themselves from significant losses. These limits can vary significantly, ranging from a few thousand dollars to much higher amounts. In some cases, if you want to place a very large bet, you may need to negotiate with the sportsbook or spread your bet across multiple sportsbooks.
As for point spreads, they are a popular type of sports bet designed to even the playing field between two teams. Sportsbooks set a point spread based on the perceived difference in skill between the two teams. When you bet on a point spread, you are not just betting on who will win the game, but also by how many points they will win or lose. This creates more balanced betting action and makes the bet more interesting.
For example, if the Falcons are favored to beat the Eagles by 10 points, the point spread might be set at Falcons -10. In this case, if you bet on the Falcons, they must win by more than 10 points for your bet to be successful. If you bet on the Eagles, they can either win outright or lose by fewer than 10 points for your bet to win.
Point spreads are typically set at whole numbers, half-points, or sometimes quarter-points to avoid a “push” or a tie. A push occurs when the final score difference is exactly equal to the point spread, resulting in a refund of the bet. Sportsbooks try to avoid this by setting the spread at a number that is less likely to result in a push.
There is no rule that says you have to bet on a specific point spread, like more than 3 points. However, the sportsbook sets the spread based on their analysis, and you can only bet on the spread they offer. You can’t change the spread to your preference, like Falcons over Eagles by 1 point, unless the sportsbook offers alternative lines or a “teaser” bet where you can adjust the spread, but this usually comes with adjusted odds.
