Betting the Columbus Crew SC moneyline is slightly different than other sports. In soccer, there are three moneyline outcomes–Crew, their opponent, and draw. If you want a traditional two-way moneyline, bet the Draw No Bet option at your sportsbook.
Let's imagine Columbus is a favorite at home. Their moneyline odds are -170, their opponent's odds are +475, and the odds of a draw are +290. This means you would have to bet $170 on Columbus to win $100. If you wanted to bet for a draw you would win $290 for every $100 bet and likewise if you wanted to bet against the Crew, you would win $475 if you bet $100 on their opponent.
If you don't want to bet high moneyline odds or deal with a three-way system, you can bet the goal spread.
Let's use the example above. If Columbus is a -170 favorite, the goal spread would be -1.0 (+110). That means the Crew would need to win the match by two goals to win your bet and you would win $110 for every $100 you bet. If Crew won by a single goal, you would push and get your initial wager returned.
Likewise, you could bet their opponent at odds of +1.0 (-130), which means you would have to bet $130 to win $100 and need the opponent to win or tie to win your bet, but if they lost by a single goal you would push and get your initial wager refunded.
Like other sports, betting the Columbus Crew SC game total is a popular bet. Let's imagine the Crew is playing tonight, and the total is 3.5 goals. You can simply bet over 3.5 goals or under 3.5 goals. So if you think Columbus and their opponent will have a good offensive night, you'd need four total goals scored to win your bet. If you think the Crew will have a low-scoring game, you'd need both teams to score three goals or less.
Be aware of the odds. It's not uncommon for the vig or juice to be priced off the standard -110 price in soccer totals.
