With fixed odds betting , a gambler places a fixed-risk stake on stated fractional or decimal odds on the outcome of a sporting event that would give a known return for that outcome occurring or a known loss if that outcome doesn't occur the initial stake. The spread on offer will refer to the betting firm's prediction on the range of a final outcome for a particular occurrence in a sports event, e.
The more right the gambler is then the more they will win, but the more wrong they are then the more they can lose. The level of the gambler's profit or loss will be determined by the stake size selected for the bet, multiplied by the number of unit points above or below the gambler's bet level. This reflects the fundamental difference between sports spread betting and fixed odds sports betting in that both the level of winnings and level of losses are not fixed and can end up being many multiples of the original stake size selected.
For example, in a cricket match a sports spread betting firm may list the spread of a team's predicted runs at — If the gambler elects to buy at and the team scores runs in total, the gambler will have won 50 unit points multiplied by their initial stake. But if the team only scores runs then the gambler will have lost 50 unit points multiplied by their initial stake. It is important to note the difference between spreads in sports wagering in the U. In the U.
In the UK betting above or below the spread does not have a known final profit or loss, with these figures determined by the number of unit points the level of the final outcome ends up being either above or below the spread, multiplied by the stake chosen by the gambler. For UK spread betting firms, any final outcome that finishes in the middle of the spread will result in profits from both sides of the book as both buyers and sellers will have ended up making unit point losses.
So in the example above, if the cricket team ended up scoring runs both buyers at and sellers at would have ended up with losses of five unit points multiplied by their stake. This is a bet on the total number of points scored by both teams. Suppose team A is playing team B and the total is set at If the final score is team A 24, team B 17, the total is 41 and bettors who took the under will win. If the final score is team A 30, team B 31, the total is 61 and bettors who took the over will win.
The total is popular because it allows gamblers to bet on their overall perception of the game e. Example: In a football match the bookmaker believes that 12 or 13 corners will occur, thus the spread is set at 12— In North American sports betting many of these wagers would be classified as over-under or, more commonly today, total bets rather than spread bets.
However, these are for one side or another of a total only, and do not increase the amount won or lost as the actual moves away from the bookmaker's prediction. Many Nevada sports books allow these bets in parlays , just like team point spread bets. This makes it possible to bet, for instance, team A and the over , and be paid if both. Such parlays usually pay off at odds of with no commission charge, just as a standard two-team parlay would. The mathematical analysis of spreads and spread betting is a large and growing subject.
For example, sports that have simple 1-point scoring systems e. By far the largest part of the official market in the UK concerns financial instruments; the leading spread-betting companies make most of their revenues from financial markets, their sports operations being much less significant. Financial spread betting in the United Kingdom closely resembles the futures and options markets, the major differences being.
Financial spread betting is a way to speculate on financial markets in the same way as trading a number of derivatives. In particular, the financial derivative Contract for difference CFD mirrors the spread bet in many ways. In fact, a number of financial derivative trading companies offer both financial spread bets and CFDs in parallel using the same trading platform. Unlike fixed-odds betting, the amount won or lost can be unlimited as there is no single stake to limit any loss.
However, it is usually possible to negotiate limits with the bookmaker:. Spread betting has moved outside the ambit of sport and financial markets that is, those dealing solely with share, bonds and derivatives , to cover a wide range of markets, such as house prices. Additionally, by avoiding the favourite-longshot bias , where the expected returns on bets placed at shorter odds exceed that of bets placed at the longer odds, and not betting with one's favorite team, but rather with the team that has been shown to be better when playing in a specific weather condition and time of day, the possibility of arriving at a positive outcome is increased.
In the UK and some other European countries the profit from spread betting is free from tax. The tax authorities of these countries designate financial spread betting as gambling and not investing, meaning it is free from capital gains tax and stamp duty , despite the fact that it is regulated as a financial product by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK. Most traders are also not liable for income tax unless they rely solely on their profits from financial spread betting to support themselves.
The popularity of financial spread betting in the UK and some other European countries, compared to trading other speculative financial instruments such as CFDs and futures is partly due to this tax advantage. However, this also means any losses cannot be offset against future earnings for tax calculations. Conversely, in most other countries financial spread betting income is considered taxable.
For example, the Australian Tax Office issued a decision in March saying "Yes, the gains from financial spread betting are assessable income under section or section of the ITAA ". This has resulted in a much lower interest in financial spread betting in those countries.
Suppose Lloyds Bank is trading on the market at p bid, and p offer. A spread-betting company is also offering p. We use cash bets with no definite expiry , or "rolling daily bets" as they are referred to by the spread betting companies. We use the offer price since I am "buying" the share betting on its increase. If a bet goes overnight, the bettor is charged a financing cost or receives it, if the bettor is shorting the stock. On top of this, the bettor needs an amount as collateral in the spread-betting account to cover potential losses.
The punter usually receives all dividends and other corporate adjustments in the financing charge each night. For example, suppose Lloyds Bank goes ex-dividend with dividend of The bettor receives that amount. The exact amount received varies depending on the rules and policies of the spread betting company, and the taxes that are normally charged in the home tax country of the shares.

Apparently so. Although, as the results become clearer, the market will settle down and the width of the spreads could easily cover the result With seats in parliament and the current market at Conservative seats that suggests Mrs May will end up with a healthy 90 seat majority. Seems toppy. If 90 seats is indeed realistic, just imagine what her majority would have been with a well run campaign Prices as of The Tories are up 10 seats on yesterday's quote, i.
Labour have dropped to There's little love for the Lib Dems although I've just had a small buy of their seats They currently have 9 MPs and so I think the downside is limited I could well lose on the width of the spread. Financial Spreads as of 5. As of 6. There's still no respite for the Tories or Lib Dems. Neither party seems to be getting much love see prices below. That would suggest that these markets are seeing more trades and they're no longer just a PR market for the spread betting companies.
Conservatives Improve It's sombre morning here in the office but here's a quick price update from Financial Spreads, Sporting Index and Spreadex - see screenshots below from The Conservative party, who are normally the 'law and order party', have gone up 7 seats from Friday's quote of - seats to - In the seesaw between the two main parties, Labour has lost most of those seats dropping - to Caution: Wide Spreads As usual with election betting, watch out for the wide spreads - Sporting Index and Spreadex are still offering markets with a 6 point spread on the main parties.
Financial Spreads are more reasonable with a 4 point spread but that's still not that tight. That's a pretty big bet. He's promising the earth and the younger members of the electorate are lapping it up. That's all well and good but he seems to be forgetting that the trains were poor when they were run by the Government in the past That's a problem for another day though Impressive Labour Rebound The Labour seats market has moved up by an impressive 50 seats.
On 25 April they were forecast to get 29 - 31 seats, up from the 9 seats they currently have. Prior to yesterday's TV debate, the spread had already crashed to 15 - 17 seats. And now they've lost another 2 seats. That's careless. On 11 May Labour were trading at - see story below. The Labour party seats market has now moved 20 seats higher to - Their manifesto has some well intentioned ideas but it proves again that Jeremy Corbyn is as ill-suited to office as Donald Trump.
Luckily, Corbyn's also as unelectable as Kinnock. It's a shame the Labour party don't have a more Blairite candidate who can keep the Tory party in check. There's been no discernable change in the prices despite the Labour Party draft manifesto leak.
Perhaps that says a lot about the current perception of the Labour party. Financial Spreads: 9.

But his is a red safe seat with a high profile, as the former seat of Tony Blair. The seat is predicted to go Tory by a whisker, handing power to Paul Sewell, which would see Labour lost the seat to its rivals for the first time since The previous MRP poll had Labour to lose 44 seats to the Conservatives, but that has now dropped to Both parties' leaders are hot-footing it around the country as they visit five marginal seats each in their final push to win swing voters' support ahead of polling day.
The poll has emerged as Prime Minister Boris Johnson is touring the country pushing his "get Brexit done" mantra. Both parties are targeting marginal seats in the midlands and north as the race to the ballots looms. While the polls suggest the Tories will still edge back into power, the latest predictions show the gap closing between Labour and the Tories. But the polls don't predict great leaps for Labour. The polls predict that most of the regions Labour could take are largely red seats lost in the last election.
