Prior to the 2019-20 NFL Season, I wanted to expand my Implied Probability calculator. My calculator did simple calculations and conversions to allow me to see which moneyline odds were a good value based on my implied probability. Overall, I had nothing unusual that the average sports bettor would have in their tool belt.

One of the things I wanted to add was a Moneyline to Spread converter.

The problem with this concept is that every sportsbook has different nuances in their booking. With each book having different hold/juice percentages, having a foolproof system is near impossible without tremendous amounts of data–which is expensive.

So what I did was take available data and use the average to create a general overview. As I create and develop my own probabilities based on my algorithms and systems, I can easily calculate an exected spread.

The longevity of a sports bettor relies on a couple of cornerstone principles–getting the best number–is one of them. It’s not unusual for a sportsbook to offer better value on the Moneyline versus the Spread. Use this data to ensure you’re receiving the best value possible.
