What Exactly Does ATS Betting Mean In Football?
Chances are, you would not be checking ATS records if you were completely new to this type of betting, but extra clarification never hurts. Betting against the spread (ATS) means that you are wagering on a point spread rather than the moneyline or total. An example would be if you wanted to bet on the New England Patriots ATS. Let’s say that the oddsmaker has the Patriots listed as a -14 favorite over the Tennessee Titans. New England would cover the spread as long as they win the game by more than 14 points.
In the case of the Titans, they would cover by winning the game outright, or by losing by less than 14 points. If the Patriots won by exactly 14 points, or the Titans lost by exactly 14 points, the bet would result in a push that would be included in the team’s overall ATS standings. A team’s ATS record is an indication of how many times they have been able to cover the spread posted by Vegas. A team with a 8-6-2 ATS record would have covered 8 times, not covered 6 times, and pushed twice.
