What Is ‘Middling’ in Sports Betting?


Middling is a strategy used by bettors to take advantage of fluctuating point spreads. It involves placing two separate bets on the same game, one at the original point spread and one at the new point spread after the line has moved. If the final score falls in between the two spreads, the bettor wins both bets.

This is usually done by advanced bettors who pay careful attention to the lines and study both teams before the game, plus it’s also a high-risk option as you could end up losing both bets and losing twice as much money.
