While there’s no exact and precise formula on how point spreads are drafted, there are a number of themes that are fairly common among oddsmakers. They are using this oftentimes to come up with their point spreads for every game in the season.
Giving Team Ratings
Generally speaking, bookmakers make what is otherwise called as Power Ratings for every league and these are used to rank every team that take part in it and assigning them points total. Then after, these are adjusted every week of play which is based on the outcome.
This happens by assessing every team and player in the roster. Once done, a value is then assigned to every player along with the rating of the team; assuming that a player on that roster is available.
Furthermore, being able to rate the player individually, oddsmakers are able to adjust the lines accordingly when some athletes are expected to miss the game.
True Purpose of Post-Game Reports
Hence comes the significance of post-game interviews, injury reports and everything in between. These pieces of information are all valuable to sports bettors and bookmakers. Without these details, everyone will be left in the dark and would not be able to make their next move accordingly.
