Can Someone Explain To Me How The Point Spread Works When Betting On Football?

For example, if the team you wagered on is a 7 point favorite, they must win by more than 7 points for you to win your bet. If they win the game, but by 6 points or less, you lose your bet. If they win by exactly 7, that’s called a „push” and no one wins (except the bookies!)
If the team you bet on is a 7 point underdog, they can lose the game by 6 points or less or win by any margin and you win your bet.
(Disclaimer) Of course, betting on football is illegal in most of the US, this is only a hypothetical example!

    +7 for example means the team you chose can lose by no more than 6 goals
    -7 means the team you chose has to score 7 or more goals in order to win the bet.

    Arizona +7
    Pitt -7
    What you have to answer is the following question :
    „Do you think Pitt will win by 7 points or more?”
    If yes pick Pitt.
    If no pick AZ
