What is a Middle in betting?
A Middle is a situation where a bettor takes advantage of differing spreads or totals across multiple agencies. The idea is to bet on both sides of the spread or total in order to create a situation where either bet is guaranteed to win while both bets could also win. An example of this would be if a bettor bets on the Chicago Bulls -4.0 and New York Knicks +6.0 and the game ends 110-105 to Chicago. Here the bettor will win both bets, in other words, “catch the middle”. To learn more check out our Middle Calculator.
