How to bet on Middles in Sports?
Middling or betting the middle has been quite popular lately because bettors can earn high profits almost without high risk.

As the time goes by, the oddsmakers adjusted the NFL betting lines. The result is that Dallas is by 10-point favorite. Of course the three-point change is drawing attention because Dallas has been changed from being favored by touchdown to being favored with two scores. This significant change is the sign that bettors can take the middling betting.
In the other line, you are taking Eagles at +10. Now we all agree that you conduct wagers at both sides. And you possibly win them both. The catch here is that Dallas must win by 8 or 9 points. If Cowboys win by 7 or 8 points, you are still able to win at least one bet while returning your initial money. Middle betting can give you windows of opportunity with little risk, but it is not a no-brainer method. There is still possibility that you will lose.
If Dallas only win by 3 points, they can’t cover your -7 wager. However, you would still win your +10 on Eagles. However, you will lose 50% of your money, including the 10% commision you should pay to sportsbook.
