What Do „line” And „over/under” Mean On Betting Odds? How Are They Calculated?

For example, before today’s Celtics-Lakers game, the odds in the LA Times listed the Celtics as the favorite and the Lakers as the underdog, with a line of 2-1/2 and an over/under of 192. What does „2-1/2″ mean and what does the cipher of 192 signify? Is it total points scored or something?
By the way, I’m not a bettor, just curious. =)

Whats The Difference Between Betting On A Team With A -0.5 Line And The Money Line?

well for betting on a team with -0.5 is like betting on moneyline (1×2), but you also must take in consideration this handicap of -0.5. That means that at the final score (or half time score, depends on the bet you make), you take out the 0.5 points from that team.
as an example, if you bet on manchester united (-0.5) vs chelsea, in the case of a draw (let’s say 1-1), the bet is a winning bet if you placed your money on chelsea (as the final score with handicap would be 0.5 – 1)
if the final score is 1-0, the final score considering the betting handicap would be 0.5 – 1 = and you can see from these simple things who is in advantage and won the game
Moneyline betting is regular betting, where the final score (with no changes) is the one to be considered for settling the bets

I Have A Question About Money Line Sports Bets?

Here’s an example:
It happens that tomorrow’s money line on the Yankee – Mariner game is New York -175, Seattle +165. Now suppose that you and I both go to a sports book in Las Vegas and I take the Yankees and you take the Mariners.
If the Yankees win, you lose $100 and I win $100.
If the Mariners win, I lose $175 and you win $165.
Now here’s my question: Assuming that there is an equal amount of betting support for each team, it looks to me like the sports book makes money on this type of bet only when the underdog wins. Is this true? If not, how does the book make money when the favorite wins?
