Betting Lines for Your Spotify Top Artist

Spotify rolled out their ‘Spotify Wrapped’ playlist for their users this past week and as an Apple Music user, I couldn’t be more jealous about the cool way of rolling out an annual recap. I loved looking through everyone’s list and judging each of their favorites, so I thought to write a blog about some of my thoughts.

Instead of the normal, overly judgmental, Nick blog just ripping something constantly I thought to combine another world of mine when writing this, sports betting. I will explain how each of these betting lines work so you can better understand your boy’s/girls’ sports gambling tirades.

EXPLAINING SPORTS BETS:

  • When you see a minus (-) sign in front of a price, it shows you that it’s favored to win. That number also indicates how much money you need to bet in order to win $100.

Example:

Moneyline (ML): Dodgers (-220) | Rays (+180) *Dodgers favored

Over/Under: 7.5 Runs (-110)

FINAL SCORE: Dodgers 4-Rays 3

So, the winners of this bet would be those that bet on the Dodgers (they won on a straight up ML bet) and those that bet on the under (total of 7 runs were scored [7 < 7.5 runs].

Keep in mind that each of these lines were made to represent the stereotypical fan for these artists. The Over/Under lines also work such that they are taking the totality of 2020 (unless otherwise specified).
