Betting Against the Spread
Normally, the house team wins 58.4percent of the scores and time 2.70 more points compared to the street team. However, betting against the spread, I show road teams to be the value that is better, as the following table shows. The table is based on laying 11 to win 10. The yield column indicates the expected proportion of money won (or lost when negative) to money bet. As you can see, betting home teams has a house edge of 6.22%, whilst street teams are only 2.70%.
