      What a very generous person your work colleague is - not to mention head-mental! Your winnings are safe in the bank already

      The current spread bet with Sporting index (I.e No. Of points at season end)

      Newcastle 92.5 -94.5
      Albion 83.5 - 85.5

      In other words the bookies currently have the gap at 9 points.

      These are Newcastle fans who, given the choice, would probably ditch Rafa for the return of Kev!!!!

      That's simply because the bookies have based it on us being 3 points behind after 1/3 of the season has been played. Their predictions are useless.

      I know all of those words, but not in the order written. I don't think gambling is for me...

      Wait, the guy thinks that between now and the end of the season we're only going to pick up 13 points?

      No. He will add 13 points onto Brighton's total at the end of the season and is betting that Newcastle would still finish above them. So he basically thinks we'll finish at least 13 points behind them with a worse goal difference.

      Oh! Right, thanks.

      That's slightly less insulting but still pretty laughable.

      The ‘’Spread’’ is the number of points Albion are expected to get after 46 games this season. That is currently set between 83.5 and 85.5 points. You can bet over i.e more than 85.5 or under which is less than 83.5.

      If you bet £10 per point that Albion would get over 85.5 points you would win or lose as follows :

      If Albion got 84 points. No win / no lose – I.e between 83.5 and 85.5 points

      If Albion got 90 points you would win £45 (4.5, the difference between 90 and 85.5 multiplied by 10)

      If Albion got 80 points you would lose £35 (3.5, the difference between 83.5 and 80)

      You can really do your nuts on spread betting if you get it wrong.
