    say team A is -21/2 points favored over team B,if you bet team A you would give team B 21/2 points,for instance ,if the final score was team A100,team B 98, the score would be , with team B getting 2 1/2 points,TeamA 100, teamB,98 pplus the 2 1/2 points,100 1/2 points,so team B covered the spread,if the final score was teram A100 team B97, final as far betting goes ,Team A100 teamB99 1/2,so if you are betting, you can win the bet even if your team lose,s the game if you take the points.hope this answers your question,good luck.

    If Memphis is favored by 2.5 over Kansas it means Memphis is the favorite so if you bet on Memphis -2.5 and they win the game by 2, then you lose. Whatever the final is you subtract 2.5 from Memphis or if you take Kansas you would add 2.5.
